PRAISE FOR LOVECONTU SONG DE LIGHT LOVECONTU:

Legend of Song de Light audiobook wasn’t what I expected, but offers something different from my usual read. Lately, I’ve been stepping outside my box and this was one of my wild cards.

This is the sort of story which should be played loudly to fill the room. The background of the tapes being played etc wants to be heard clearly as it helps understand the switch in characters/time.

The stories show the challenging relationships and culture of the arts. Each character offers a different diversity. This is not a collection of lighthearted love stories. Some of the themes will not be for everyone. The characters are trying to juggle difficult scenarios.

Overall an interesting collection. 4 unique stars out of 5. D.M. (Goodreads)

Sounds like quite a tale!😉

Kaitlynzq is giving away some cool prizes during the tour…

$4 Gift Card to Kaitlynzq’s Boutique – 10 winners

Free Copy of Lovecontu Song de Light Lovecontu Audio Set – 2 winners

Surprise Gift – 2 winners

Please use the Rafflecopter below to enter. Remember, there is a chance to enter everyday so be sure to follow the Blog Tour for the contest and exclusive content. You may find the tour link here.

I listened to the audiobook of Legend of Song de Light and reviewed it on my own, so I can vouch for Kaitlynzq’s unique style! 🙂

Exclusive Interview with author Kaitlynzq, plus a look at romance audiobook, LEGEND OF SONG DE LIGHT!

Hi, readers! I am pleased to announce a very special post today on ILRB. We’re doing something a little different. This is our eighth official author interview on this romance blog! I know in the past, we did character interviews then switched over to the author’s take on it, but this approach is a bit unusual.

We have a real treat for you, readers. Today we get to speak one-on-one with a talented author. Please join me in welcoming Kaitlynzq to ILRB! 🙂

Marie Lavender:  Hi, Kaitlynzq. Please have a seat.

Author Kaitlynzq:  Hello, Marie.

Marie:  Hey, it’s such a pleasure to have you here!

I’m going to throw in a few standard questions first.

Obviously, we know your occupation as an author, but some writers have other jobs as well. Do you have another occupation? Do you believe you’re any good at it? Do you like what you do?

I know I’m overloading you with questions, but we’re really interested in finding out more about you…

Kaitlynzq:  I’m an author with a focus on adult literary fiction, poetry, and romance. ​To write for me is a need, almost like breathing. Writing is how I feel in rhythm with me, as me.

Marie:  I know what you mean! 😉

Tell us…what is your greatest dream?

Kaitlynzq:  I have many dreams; some centered on my writing, and others on love. These are delicate areas to talk about, and not always easy to discern what to share. For my writing, I have many aspirations for my current books, and for the stories that are evolving within me to write.

Marie:  All right. I know dreams can change.

So, let’s try something else now, okay?

What was your dream growing up? Did you achieve that dream? If so, in what ways was it not what you expected? If you never achieved the dream, why not?

Kaitlynzq:  I have always dreamed of being a writer as long as I can remember. Even as a young girl when I explored other artistic mediums, like being a fashion designer, or dance choreographer, creating time to write fictional stories was always part of how I would design my life’s plan.

Marie:  Me too!

What is your deepest desire, Kaitlynzq?

Kaitlynzq:  As a continuation to your previous questions, one of my deepest desires is to get to spend my life writing, and get to create the stories that are in my imagination.

Marie:  That’s understandable.

Tell me something…what is your greatest fear?

Kaitlynzq:  One of my greatest fears is that my doubts, and internal criticism are true.

Marie:  I think we all fear that on some level…

So, I want to try something different next.

Readers, let’s shift somewhat and get the author’s perspective on one of her characters.  🙂

We’ve heard rumors about the hero of your story, Kessington. Quite an interesting character. Can you tell us a little about him?

Kaitlynzq:  One of the characters within ​Legend of Song de Light audio book that I hold in a special way within my heart is Kessington.

He’s a tender gentleman that feels deeply, and has a natural open heart within all the degrees of emotions.

His birthday is September 18th, and his full name is part of the discovery within ​Legend of Song de Light.

Marie:  Okay.

What are your character’s greatest strengths?

Kaitlynzq:  He is a man with a wonderful curiosity, and an openness to the world.

And, his exquisite way of painting the felt experiences of living moments into a song.

Marie:  Nice!

And what are his greatest weaknesses?

Kaitlynzq:  I find it very hard to find any weaknesses within him.

Marie:  I see.

Let’s try something fun, shall we?

What are some important elements we can find within Kessington’s world?

Kaitlynzq:  He creates model vintage train sets that bring his amazing imagination to visual display that he then streams into soundscape artistry of what his heart hears in his experiences.

Part of his sound world that plays a significant link in his life is a saxophone, and the instrument’s subtleties are shared throughout ​Legend of Song de Light audio book.

His favorite color palette is antique silver and seafoam green, and he has a special fondness for the KEWORA Symphony.

Marie:  Awesome… 🙂

How about another question?

What’s a positive quality that your character is unaware that he or she has?

Kaitlynzq:  He emanates so beautifully a masculine tenderness.

Marie:  Cool! Those characters are usually difficult to come across.

Will readers like or dislike this character, and why?

Kaitlynzq:  I realize that each reader will have their own experience with Kessington’s story.

Recently, I’ve started creating videos that share more about the characters in ​Legend of Song de Light. This particular video for Kessington shares about a very special sound within a soundwave.

I’m looking forward to creating more of these videos.

Marie:  Lovely!

Now that we have a real taste of Kessington, we have a few questions for you as well as the author, about the writing process of your book.

What first gave you the idea for Legend of Song de Light?

Kaitlynzq:  The idea for ​Legend of Song de Light was a continual prompt from my heart. Something told me to begin, and the story revealed itself the more I wrote. One emotion filled layer after another. And, this story continues to reveal more for me now, each time I listen to the audio book, or read the audio play.

Marie:  Great!

Interesting how the muse works, huh? 😉

Let’s try something else.

What is your writing style like? Are you a pantster or a plotter?

Kaitlynzq:  I’m definitely a plotter. I have my notes, notebooks, online documents, and spreadsheets. All trying to stay up with my imagination.

Marie:  I know, right?

I’m throwing this one in for our aspiring writers. Did you come across any specific challenges in writing Legend of Song de Light or publishing it? What would you do differently the next time?

Kaitlynzq:  I think that there are benefits with all of the possibilities in how an author chooses to publish their work. For me, I’ve decided to self-publish all of my books, and created my book boutique to make them available for everyone online.

One challenge for me are my nerves as I proceed into something new, whether that’s within a new element of writing, or all that is involved with self-publishing. So many feelings occur, such as, scared, excited, ‘what if’ doubts, et cetera, and often, all of these feelings at one time. I’m still working on this challenge; however, somehow I know these particular choices I’ve made are right for me.

Marie:  Indie publishing can be quite a challenge…

Well, it was a such a pleasure having you here on the I Love Romance Blog! And how apropos is that, considering what a great story Legend of Song de Light appears to be. Congratulations on your book… ♥

Vocal Synopsis:​  

Kaitlynzq is also offering us a teaser from the audiobook!

“…I awoke to a sonic dream of rhapsody ensemble, hummingbird wings, and chimes that were the arrangement…”

 

“…Again and again I muted the caution sign, and proceeded with Kamille, but my mind got even more insistent as I thought of telling her…”

 

“…Those chrysanthemums burst a duet of color that are silk to the touch, and bring visions of a certain lady, but I haven’t returned to the garden since that day in May…”

 

“…Dearest Euzy,

Your drum of cashmere footsteps,

harp of silk strings touch,

and velvet flute voice,

Are an ensemble for my heart.

Forever yours,

Edwin…”

 

“…As my imagination worked its magic, I vibrated to a guitar string’s luxurious touch…”

 

“…Dendranthema x grandiflora has layers of petals that caress every fiber of the flower’s center, as my dear Rquhwy’s touch vibrates in my veins to the core of my breath…”

 

“…The room that is partitioned with a fireplace’s heat wave, and holds teardrop flower petals in the corners, flows freely into my heart with each pebble of sand in an hourglass. Wisjvye’s heartbeat radiates…”

 

“…Danseur pulls ballerina into him, their eyes speaking the volumes in their hearts as he lifts her above to hold a cherimey for an eight count. He draws her into him again, and upon her signal, tosses her high in the air for a leatur to land softly in his arms. Danseur reimey, as ballerina performs an intricate ​olor fu de ar, a bea uh li, triple tizpin, turns back to Danseur, and magnifi-gras-se-susay.Danseur catches her right on cue. Joined hand to hand, they geeté,geeté, adream petite into the final trusetluh-es-aglolift, and return encircled with their eyes speaking the volumes in their hearts…”

 

…The developmental process of this collection included the use of a paint brush to add to the photos the undercurrent of feeling within them, and when the four piece panorama is placed side-by-side, a gentle stream is seen that carries this private story…

Intriguing! I’m curious to find out more… 😀

New Release Feature: The Depth of the Spirit by Linda Lee Williams, plus giveaway!

I am pleased to announce a great book release by Linda Lee Williams, an author I met during my journey! Her contemporary inspirational romance, The Depth of the Spirit, officially released in late January! Yay! That’s awesome! :) Congrats on your new release!:)

When a new book comes out, it’s always an exciting time for an author!

Linda is giving us a look at her inspirational romance, The Depth of the Spirit, today.

Nice cover!

This is the blurb for The Depth of the Spirit:

When an accident leaves Thomas crippled and in a wheelchair, he resigns himself to life as a bachelor—not an easy thing for a young man to accept.  Then fate drops Margot in his lap.  Margot understands the frustrations and challenges of Thomas’ disability.  She knows the pain of loss.  Has serendipity brought Thomas and Margot together?  Or has his dead friend’s prophecy come true?  Only Kayla knows for sure…

And here is an excerpt from The Depth of the Spirit to tease you with.

Midweek, I’m mired in policy renewals and quotes.  My mother quit her job as an X-ray technician to care for me.  Now, she works as my assistant.  The phone in the office den rings, and a man asks for Joyce.  “For you, Mom,” I say.  She turns from the file cabinet and picks up on her extension.  I smile as she schmoozes with the client.  She’s a natural.

While she’s talking, my cell sings out a Coldplay number.  I swallow.  Holy crap.  Margot.  Did her truck break down again?

“Hi, Margot.  Everything okay?”

“I’ve been thinking about it, and I’ve decided we should definitely be friends.”

“Hmm.  In that case, I have a favor to ask of you.”

“Really?  Anything.  What can I do?”

A nectar feeder hangs under the eave outside the window.  Trilling, a male hummingbird flies in.  He hovers, sips, and flashes his magenta throat.  I draw in a breath.  “Will you go to a graduation party with me a week from Saturday?  If you’re not working, I mean…”

“I’d love to!  Is the graduate a relative?”

“Sort of.  My best friend’s kid sister.”

“Dustin?” Margot says.

I’m shocked she remembers—shocked and pleased.  “Yeah.  You can meet him at the party.  He’s an okay guy.  Better than okay, actually.  You’ll like him.”

“If he’s your best friend, I’m sure I will.”

I relish the sound of her voice, the thought of seeing her, even if I am essentially fixing her up with Dustin.  Lots of girls crushed on him in high school, but his heart belonged to Kayla, and it still does.  Maybe Margot can change that.  Although regret ripples through me at the prospect, I’m doing the right thing.  I have a chance to honor Kayla’s last request, whether I imagined her visitation or not.  She would want Dustin to be happy again.

My mom ends her call.  I swivel away from my tabletop desk and out into the foyer.  “So, can I pick you up at one, Margot?”

“Sure.  Why not?”  I hear the teasing smile in her voice.

“Hey, that’s my line…”

She laughs.  “Let’s get together before then.  Are you free Friday evening?  We could meet for dinner somewhere?”

Rat-a-tat-tat goes my heart.  I glance behind me, but my mom is typing at the computer.  “Uh…yeah, that would be great.  What did you have in mind?”

“Chili’s again?  I think we should make it our place.”

Our place?  There isn’t an us, is there?

“Okay,” I say.  “What time?”

“Five?  That way, we can beat the rush.”

“Fine with me.  I’ll see you then.”  I mumble goodbye before she can renege.  Part of me is elated, the other part numb.  Margot asked me out on a date.

What people are saying about this book:

“This is a beautiful story. The series title is a perfect description for the feelings in this story. You do not need to read the first one at all to understand what’s going on, but my advice is to read it just because it’s another amazing story by Linda.

It’s such a lovely, sweet story! I really enjoyed reading it. If you like feel-good stories, don’t pass this up. I loved it!
