This week, our Authors After dark feature focuses on Cat Grant.
Name: Cat Grant
Most recently published work.
I’ve been pretty busy this year! Co-wrote a two part 185K kinkapalooza (Power Play: Resistance and Power Play: Awakening) with my editor/BFF/favorite pain in my ass Rachel Haimowitz, published a novella (Priceless) in May, & I’ve got another one (Doubtless) scheduled for June.
Geez, I think I need a nap!
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
Describe your writing style using just one sentence.
Emotional, intense, dramatic, sexy!
Complete this sentence: I write m/m romance because…
I enjoy its dynamics and complexities. I like getting under the skin of my male characters and exploring what drives them. I love finding my characters’ vulnerabilities. A vulnerable man is a very sexy man, IMHO.
Do you prefer to see your work in electronic, print or both forms? Why?
Of course, there’s no greater thrill than holding an honest to God paper copy of one’s book, but I’m happy to be published electronically as well. It’s an amazing feeling, knowing people all around the world can buy my work with a click of their mouses . . .er, mice?
I’d recommend The First Real Thing, published by Ellora’s Cave. It’s the first book in my Icon Men trilogy, and also my very first award winner – it won the EPIC Award for Erotica this past March.
Plus, my rent boy hero Cameron is just plain HAWWWT and adorable. I love him to bits.
Here’s where you can find Cat's books:
You can buy all my Riptide titles here.
Or if you’d prefer Amazon.
Tell us about your upcoming work.
I’m currently working on a Christmas story featuring my heroes Connor & Wes from Priceless, then I’ll be writing another novella focusing on Connor’s best friend & business partner, Steve.
Hoping to spend most of this fall and winter retooling my now OOP Courtland Chronicles series for a new and improved reprint by Riptide.
Why are you attending Authors After Dark 2012? Why should your readers attend?
Honestly, the fact that it’s in New Orleans was a huge draw for me. I went there for the first time last year, and I fell in love. The French Quarter is a huge, non-stop party and every bar there is a gay bar. I hope everybody who shows up has as good of a time as I plan to!
A personal note from Cat to her readers.
I’d like to say thank you to everyone who’s followed me on this journey for the past four years. It hasn’t always been easy (a writer’s bank account is never full, unless you’re JK Rowling!), but even on those tearing-my-hair-out days, there’s no other job I’d rather have. Thanks for letting me tell you my stories.
