How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
This type of novella goes through only 3-4 passes with my red pen. Not the usual 20 passes I give my full length novels under my real name Kim Hornsby. Because of this, the story will be simple, the read will be fast and I won’t introduce any suspense elements or mystery.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Only go into this if you are prepared to put years and years and years into it. You must give up a lot to be a good writer and if that’s what you want, do everything you can to make your craft better. Conferences are a great way to start off, learning the skills needed to write a book. Read how to books, Take courses, attend classes, write everyday and don’t be afraid to scrap stuff that doesn’t belong.
Kiki Abbott is really author Kim Hornsby and writes under a pseudonym so as to not confuse her readership in the suspense genre.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I love to watch the reality show The Bachelor on ABC and because I write romance novels I decided during the last Bachelor series with Sean Lowe, I would write a short story about a show similar to America’s favorite reality series. Writing these two novellas has been great entertainment for me during the Bachelor hiatus and when I found out that Desiree Hartsock was the new Bachelorette, I decided that the second in the series would be about a woman contestant. Thus, Kat’s Season.
