Then the next day you could answer the questions on your blog entry for the day. I thought it might be a fun way to get to know you better. Just an idea though. Thanks!”

Well, so here we are, the first ever “Ask a Question” day. Today, the comments are the place for you to post the questions you’d like for me to answer (or try to). Ask anything you’d like—within reason, of course (and I always reserve the right not to answer if it’s too embarrassing!)

Depending on the number of questions I get, I’ll answer them on Wednesday and into Thursday if necessary.

The floor is open. Ask away!

    I’ll go first! Your new picture on your banner showcases you with a new sassy, cute hairdo! When did you get it cut and what prompted you to cut off all your curls? You look great with both styles, btw!

    Love your new do too!

    A writing Q –

    When writing the black moment can I reveal a secret that the heroine has been covering up without having previously shown her inner turmoil about it. The situation has been implied throughout the story, but the reader will assume what the hero has also been led to believe. When she is finally convicted to reveal the truth, facing her greatest fear, consequently it forces him to confront his own fear. In short, will the reader think they’ve been duped? Is that a bad thing?

    What have your publishers done to promote/market your books, and what have you had to do? How much have they spent/how much have you spent? (I understand if you don’t want to / can’t answer that part)

    It seems like authors have to do so much of the promotion themselves. Do you ever wish you had self-published?

    Do you like Star Trek more than Star Wars? And if so, why are you insane? 😉

    But more seriously:
    When you find the love of your life and get married and live happily ever after, might your writing eventually start turning towards other genres or will you always strictly stick to romantic fiction? If so, what genre would you be most likely delve into?

    Just for the record, I don’t expect you to address the Star Wars question at all.

    Oh, I love your new picture, too. You look awesome, Kaye!

    Question: What is the single most important piece of advice you would give a Christian writer trying to perfect their stories for publication? And please, you can’t answer patience or perseverance, something more tangeable to help him/her work on in perfecting their writing is more what I’m looking for.

    Thanks for opening this up, Kaye!

    I’m so glad you chose to do this!
    What color are your eyes? (I’ve been wondering as they look green in your new pic.)
    If you were to compare your writing style to any other well known Christian Romantic Fiction author, who would it be? (Can be more than one). Or, what book would it be?
    Should the contest winners contact you, or will you email them for their info? Also, when should the winners expect to get their prizes?
    Do your books have kissing scenes?
    Will you be coming to Tulsa, Oklahoma for a book signing anytime soon?

    Oh, yes! The new hair do is great. So classy and sophisticated, yet fun. I love it!

    What’s been your favorite book to write and why? Is it still your favorite completed book?

    I know this is a ways down the road (*grin*), but what contemporary and historical series do you have planned/would you like to see happen after the Bonneterre and Ransome trilogies conclude?

    Which books did you do more research for, Brides of Bonneterre or the Ransome trilogy?
