Into the Darkness by K. F. Breene Tour: Interview & Giveaway

Into The Darkness

K. F. Breene


BLURB:

I’d always been different. I saw objects in the night where others saw emptiness. Large, human shaped shadows, fierce yet beautiful, melting into the darkness. I collected secrets like other women collected bells; afraid to fully trust lest my oddities be exposed.

Until I saw him. He’d been gliding down the street, unshakable confidence in every step. It wasn’t just that he was breathtakingly handsome with perfect features. Something about him drew me. Sucked my focus to him and then tugged at my body. As his eyes met mine, I was entrapped.

No one had noticed him. He’d been right there, just beyond the light, but only I had perceived.

I had to know if he was real. Or maybe I really was crazy. And even when my secret box was blasted wide open, dangers hurled at me like throwing knives, I couldn’t stop until I unraveled his true identity.

I just had to know.

“She was fated to live.”
“Then why must you save her?”

“Often Fate is struck down by dumb luck.”

Excerpt:

As I met his black eyes, his puzzled expression deepened. “You’re human…”

“We established that, yes. What I want to know is, if I am human, what does that make you? And why do I notice you when others usually don’t?”

His head cocked to the side. His easy balance, his lethal edge; he was like a blade resting on billowing silk. “Very few humans are able to withstand our pheromones. Fewer still to break a Kolma once it has been placed. You’ve not been trained, that’s obvious, so how is this possible when you’re definitely human? Do you possess the blood of another species?”

I could barely think past the pounding ache of my body, begging to touch him. I needed to get a grip! He was revealing some very interesting factoids that I needed to jot down in my mental notebook.

His nostrils flared. “Charles was right; your arousal is a unique scent. Like a spicy, warm drink on a mid-winter’s night. It rises above other smells, entrancing the mind.”

AUTHOR Bio:


A wine country native, K.F. Breene moved to San Francisco for college just shy of a decade ago to pursue a lifelong interest in film. As she settled into the vibrant city, it quickly became apparent that, while she thought making and editing films was great fun, she lacked cinematic genius. For that reason, her career path quickly changed direction. Her next goal was a strange childhood interest, conjured at the dining room table while filling out a form. For some reason, her young self wanted to be an accountant. Thinking on it now, she often wonders how she had any friends. Regardless, it was the direction she finally took.

While she could wrangle numbers with the best of 'em, and even though she wore the crown as the most outspoken, belligerent accountant in the world, her mind got as stuffy as her daily routine. It was here that she dusted off her creative hat and began writing. Now she makes movies in her head, not worried about lighting, shutter speed or editing equipment. Turns out, a computer is much easier to manage than a crowd of actors. She should know, she was an actor at one time.

Interview:

I would like to thank K. F. Breene for taking the time out for an author interview.


Any weird things you do when you’re alone?

There is no shortage of weird things I do when I’m alone. There’s also no shortage of weird things I do regularly, alone or otherwise. I often talk in a British accent because it’s more fun than talking to myself in my regular accent (American). I…can’t even think of what else I might do. I just kinda…do stuff. I usually just go with it, and make fun of myself when I do something stupid, which is often. I don’t see the point in being serious all the time, so I find humor in the details. A lot of the humor in my books comes from writing something in the moment, and then making fun of myself via another character. The witty banter between characters is my ego getting made fun of by my sarcastic side.

Reading that, I sound like I’m going fruit loops… So that’s a work in progress.

What is your favorite quote and why?

“Do not go gentle into that good night. Rage, rage against the dying of the light.” – Dylan Thomas.

I like the idea of fighting to keep going. Not giving in or giving up. Pushing through the pain and hardship and struggling for something better. Life isn’t easy, and neither is love/marriage, and I think that if you keep working hard, and fighting against failure and things that get you down, you will eventually reap the rewards. I like the war within that quote—it invigorates me.

Can you tell I’m an Aries? Lol!

What is your favorite ice cream flavor?

Peanut butter and chocolate from Baskin Robin’s. You may think Baskin Robin’s is very 90’s, but I’m way more into it than this new trend for frozen yogurt, I’ll tell you what.

Which mythological creature are you most like?

A troll under a bridge. Just let me be grumpy in peace! Ha!

What are four things you can’t live without?

-          iPhone. Sad but true. I have become a product of the age. I use that thing for everything. As this writing gig gets going, it’s my office on the go. I’m always on it, but rarely talking on the phone.
-          Computer. My livelihood depends on it.
-          Enough sleep. I do not function well without enough sleep. A day, two, I can hack it. When I had a newborn—oh my gosh, I was a wreck. A. Wreck!
-          Saying coffee right now would be a classic response, but I don’t drink it. Dang. Hmm… Oh. Car. Need my wheels. They are independence. Especially since I live in San Francisco and Muni is the devil. I am not kidding. If you live here, you know what I’m talking about.
