Interview with K.B. Cutter

Half Moon Street Blog

Welcome, K.B Cutter. For those who might not be familiar with you, would you be
a dear and tell the readers a little about yourself? How did you get your start in
the writing business?

What,
there is someone on the planet who may not know me?
-feigns
indignation-
I’ve
been writing ‘serious’ for over ten years. 
I was fortunate to contribute to a website where folks possessed a
similar passion for the written word. We wrote in every conceivable genre and
sub-genre.  Most of my writing partners
were women and the stories contained a romantic element, well, to be precise,
contained A LOT of erotic elements. Therefore, I figured it was a natural progression
to try my hand at a ‘professional’ submission. July 2010, Noble Romance
published my short story, Summer Heat.  
180 degrees from what I previously had written years before! I’ve been
fortunate to have my subsequent work published, but not enough to quite my
‘night’ job. Perhaps one day I can retire and live by the pen . . or should I
say ‘Word’ program.
All writers fear
the dreaded “block”. Please tell us how you handle it.
I don’t fear it as much as my brief stint on C-Block.
-shudders-
I’m blessed to have a fertile imagination, but when the
words don’t flow as fast as I’d like, I find inspiration in a song lyric or
melody. A picture, subtle change in weather or snippet of conversation may get
the creative juices simmering again.
Contrary to what some people envision about a romance
writer’s life, it’s not all glitz and glam. Well not for the majority of us.
With that bubble sadly busted, when you’re not writing, how to do you spend
your time?
I like to read in my limo enroute to my private jet.   Seriously, I am a voracious reader and I
love films, so I’m quite content to lose myself in a good story.
 I know many writers, such as Dirk and myself, keep their
pastime/career a secret. Do those close to you know you write? If so, what are
their thoughts?
Only a handful of people within my family and friends know
what I do in my pastime. I don’t get a lot of support because of what I write.
I find it quite frustrating. There is a stigma, especially if you are a man,
surrounding erotic romance authors. Somehow, we don’t write ‘real’
stories.  I guess those folks who think
that are still waiting for the train to Hogwarts…
Will you share with us your all time favorite authors? If
you’re like me, it’s a long list so give us your top ten.
Ten? Wow. Here goes-
1) Stephen King
2) Christopher Moore
3) Margie Church
4) George RR Martin
5) Phillip K. Dick
6) Alan Dean Foster
7) Ray Bradbury
8) Ed Lee
9) James Patterson
10) Simon Green
 If you could choose one book to go to the big screen,
yours or otherwise, which book would you choose and whom would you love see
casted in the parts?
If you’ll allow me a bit of a narcissistic  indulgence, I’d like to see my erotic
paranormal novel- The Darker side of Heaven come to the big or small screen
(say HBO or Showtime)  because it’s a
dark, sexy, gritty, so un-Twilight sparkly vamp, good vs evil thriller.  I’d like to see Gina Carano (Haywire) play
Chalice Noire the ass kicking, snarky anti-hero. She has jus the right mix of
grit and glam. Also, Sam Worthington as reclusive vampire, Adam Blake. I think
he can pull off both action and romance. Lastly, Russell Crowe as the evil
Fallen Angel Nickolai Voss. Crowe has the presence and its time for him to play
a  bad, bad guy!




Would you care to tell us what you’re working on now?
That is if it’s not top-secret information. If so, just whisper it in my ear. I
swear it’ll go no further.
I usually whisper naughty things, but, I’ll blurt this out!
I’m working on the sequel to Razor with my uber talented co-author Margie
Church. Its entitled Razor-Love’s Storm and it’s blazing new territory in its
realistic exploration of a contemporary, polyarmorous relationship, with BDSM
elements.
 Where can we find your stories and is there a particular
reading order?
I’d suggest Amazon. Small little webstite. Folks may have
heard of it.
-cheesy grin-
 All of my back list
could be read as stand alone titles, with the exception of Love, Revisited,
which is a sequel to Summer Heat.
Would you please share how your present and future fans
can contact you?
I am a FaceBook addict, so you’ll always find me there, on
the corner of Cyberway, taking everything in and giving out wry commentary.
 Before we wrap up this enlightening interview, do you
have anything else you’d like to share? The stage is all yours.
Yes. There was this one time, when I was young, in college,
and I met a nice old man who said he would pay my tuition if I took a few
pictures…
Ah. Ahem. Better skip that story, save it for another blog .
. .
I would suggest reading out side of your comfort zone.
Indulge in other genres. Pick up a book of poetry. Never limit yourself.

Wrap-up
K.B., thank you again for joining me here today. It was a pleasure. For those reading this interview, mark your calendars because this isn’t the last you’ve seen of K.B. January 18th is just around the corner. *grins*

  1. Kb, you are always a delight to "read." For those who don't know you – this is truly who you are. Always such fun. Thank you for putting me on your top 10 favorite authors (please keep the monthly stipends coming) – seriously, those are some amazing authors. I'm humbled. And I'm also thrilled to be writing the Razor series with you. It's groundbreaking and fascinating. And don't forget, it's nominated as 2012 Best BDSM Book at LRC! I'd love to share that award with you.

    As for Darker Side of Heaven…that is a fascinating story. Rich imagery, vivid storytelling. And it doesn't have zombies – which readers will discover on his back list.

    I wish you all the best, my friend.

  2. Thank you Margie. I'm grateful beyond words.
