Author Interview with Stacy Kennedy

Posted by on Sep 13, 2011 in Author Interviews | 2 comments

Welcome to another author interview for the Romancing Your Dark Side Book Tour. This time it is my pleasure to host Stacey Kennedy.

Here’s the description for her book, Whatnots & Doodads:

For Bryanna, a witch from the Asheville Coven, magic is on the fritz. Shunned by her coven and her boyfriend Layton for her unruly magic, she seeks a new life for herself. It just so happens, fate steps in and brings her to Strange Hollow–a place where being different is not only acceptable, but encouraged.

When Bryanna arrives in Strange Hollow, Zeke, a demon gone good, is burning with Hell’s fire over her. Not only has she set his world ablaze, but he’s found one soul he can save. He’s determined to free her from the insecurities that have damaged her soul.

Together they experience lava-hot passion as they weave their way through a tornado of emotions. But when Layton returns for her, will Zeke’s attempts to break the unworthy cage woven around her be enough to keep her in Strange Hollow forever?

Leave a comment for a chance to win a copy of the eBook of Whatnots & Doodads. Deadline for the drawing is 8 pm EST tomorrow, September 14th. BK Walker at the Virtual Book Tour Cafe will be randomly picking winners and posting them over there since I am currently away on vacation.

Now for the interview:

1. What’s the first word of your book? (You can exclude articles, pronouns or prepositions.)


 2. Tell me something about your book that I can’t find in the blurb.

The story is a romance, but it’s also centered around Bryanna—the heroine—finding herself and accepting who she is. I wanted to touch on that part of life we’ve all experienced. She needed to find her place in the world, and I enjoyed watching her grow within the story.

 3. In one word, describe your main character. (You can expand afterwards, but limit your initial response to one word.)


Bryanna turned out to be one of the funniest characters I’ve ever written. Not only in her inner thoughts, but in her dialogue too. She was a blast to write.

 4. Where does your book take place? Tell me about why you picked that location.

The story takes place in Strange Hollow. It’s a town where “the unusual” are welcomed. I had it easy with picking this location because Whatnots & Doodads is part of Liquid Silver Books Strange Hollow series. They gave me “the rules”. I just had to follow them!

 5. Tell me about your favorite character that you’ve written.

My favorite character right now is Kiya from Bite Me, I’m Yours. It’s a paranormal romance that I’m currently writing and she has so much snark, it explodes off the page. Lot of fun!

 6. What’s your favorite verb?

“Glanced”. I abuse this word in the first draft. I always have to go through and delete, delete, delete!

 7. What’s the last book you read?

The last book I read was Daughter of Lust by Ann Mayburn. It’s a sizzling paranormal erotic romance. A fantastic read!

 8. Who was your favorite fictional character as a child?

I loved the Care Bears. Seriously, I wanted to be Cheer Bear.

 9. Tell me about an event that contributed to your decision to become a writer.

What lead me to write was being a stay at home mom. I had more time on my hands, which made me read…A LOT! All those books awakened my muse.

10. What would you tell past you, if you could send a letter back in time?

Save your money! Skip college! You’re not going to be a law clerk when you grow up!  🙂


A witch with unruly magic, a demon gone good, lava-hot passion and a tornado of emotions–just another night in Strange Hollow.



  1. I would so fit in this book LOL I am one of the “unusual” 😉
