My #authorinterview with K M Neuhold

 

KM NEUHOLD

Meet KM Neuhold and her new book,

Naughty Angel (Sexy Nerd Boys, 2)

Please welcome K.M. Neuhold to my blog.  She’ll be talking about her new release.  So, what is the story about? 
This book is a new adult romance about Eve, a young woman who was very sheltered growing up in an extremely religious family. But, she’s at college now and she’s ready to let loose and get to know herself a little bit. She also wouldn’t mind getting to know Asher, the tattooed nerd who instantly seems to want to befriend her, in spite of both of their friends warning Asher that Eve isn’t his usual type of girl.
Who is the main character?
Asher and Eve are the main characters and the story is told from dual POV
What inspired this tale?
I was initially inspired to write this story when I saw a guy with a very unique tattoo. I wanted to write a male character with that tattoo and so I started wondering who that guy would be.
How did the story come to you?
Once I started thinking about who Asher was, with one arm tattooed with a full sleeve galaxy tattoo, it made me wonder what type of girl would turn Asher inside out. Once I knew who Asher and Eve were the story kind of wrote itself.
Did you have to research for this novel and if so, why?
No research was needed
Do you relate to your character?
I relate to Eve in some aspects because I was a bit of a late bloomer so I was able to draw on some familiar feelings of wanting to come out of your shell and gain some much needed experience.
Is your protagonist anything like you personally?
I would say I’m probably more like Asher than Eve.
If yes, then how?
Asher loves to tell jokes, especially puns, and looks a kind of bad ass on the outside with tattoos and piercings, but on the inside he’s a total nerd.
What made you write this character; what made them important to you or made you want to tell their story?
I honestly fell in love with Asher writing him, something about the vulnerability he holds behind his bad boy exterior. He’s misunderstood, but Eve manages to see him for who he really is.
Is there anything specific you want readers to know about this piece of work?
Nothing specific I want readers to know. I just hope they fall in love with Asher the way I did!
Okay, let’s learn more about you, as a writer Who is K.M. Neuhold?
I would say I’m a hopeless romantic who can’t help falling in love with my own characters.
What inspired you to start writing?
I’ve pretty much been writing since I learned how to hold a pencil. My favorite thing to do as a child was to write picture books. As I got older I experimented with a lot of different genres, from Middle school through high school I wrote mostly sci-fi and fantasy. But, I really found my niche and my passion when I started writing romance.
What is your favorite book you have written and why
I don’t know if I can choose! I love different things about each book I write. Every new book I write usually becomes my new favorite because right now my favorite is the next in the Sexy Nerd Boy series that won’t be out until the fall.
When you are not writing, what do you do to recharge?
Honestly, writing is my recharging time. I am currently a full time college student and I also work at a veterinary clinic so writing is my down time. I also read constantly.
Are you an Indie Author or are you part of a publishing house?
I’m an indie author
Do you read books within the genres you write?
Yes, I mainly read romance. Although I do tend to go through fazes and I also really love sci-fi
Besides being an author, do you have a second job?.
I’ve been a veterinary assistant for 7 years.
What do you enjoy most about being an author?.
I love when people love my books as much as I love them. It honestly makes my whole life feel complete when I read a good review or when someone messages me and says that they were up past their bedtime reading my book.
Okay, let’s meet one of your characters.  Who are you?  What is your name?
Asher Wright
Are you a fictional or historical character?
Fictional character
What should we know about you?
I’m an astrophysics major, although I don’t usually tell people that. People take one look at me and think I’m trouble because I have tattoos and piercings. It’s easier most of the time to let people think what they want rather than try to correct the assumption.
Tell us about your story:  When and where is your tale set?
The story is set present day in Colorado
What is your personal goal? I mean, what do you ultimately want?
What I want more than anything is Eve Moore, even though she’s way too good for me. But, hell I can at least enjoy my time with her until she comes to her sense, right?
What is standing in your way? What conflict(s) do you face?
No one wants us to be together, and I can’t say they’re wrong. I’ve got a reputation for getting it on with any willing woman. The thing about Eve is, she’s a sweet girl. She’s definitely not the type of girl for me to pull my usual song and dance with.

About Sahara Foley

Bio: Until my husband died on Christmas 2012, I never thought about becoming a writer. In fact, the act of writing a story terrified me. Don’t get me wrong, I loved reading, just never had the knack for writing. The thought of writing dialogue scared the bejeebers out of me. See, Bob was the writer. He wrote stories for years but could never get a traditional publisher interested enough to publish even one. Now I understand why, as they were unpolished outlines. Then, after 30 years together, Bob passed away and my life was turned upside down.

About a month later, I was sitting around my apartment, trying to adjust to the worst event in my life, when a little voice spoke to me. Why not publish Bob’s stories? To be truthful, ever since the advent of self-publishing, I always wanted too, that’s how much I believed in his stories. But I knew I would have to fight him for every little change I made to his outlines. Sorry, honey, but they had to be done.

So, I pulled out the box of stories, dusted them off, and started on a new adventure: The World of Self-Publishing. Boy, did I have a lot to learn. I finally published several short stories early in 2014, then my horror novella, It Lives in the Basement. While I was working on them, I was slowly learning the craft of writing, and getting The Secret of Excalibur ready for publication. Excalibur was my favorite story of them all, and in the back of my mind, I knew I wanted a publisher. One day on Twitter, I ran across a tweet from Creativia Publishing, and that was another game changer for me. I signed up with them in December of 2014, and it was the best decision I’ve made.

One thing I’ve discovered on my new adventure, are all the really awesome and talented Indie Authors. If you find the right community of Indie Authors, all they want to do is help each other. I found that I love promoting them and their books, so that’s how I setup my blog. For readers to meet Indie Authors.

Anyway, enough about me. Here’s all my contact information:
