KAI Presents… Robin Leigh Morgan!

Kev’s Author Interviews Presents…

Robin Leigh Morgan!

I’m a retired NYCity employee who’s been married for 22, no children, who has written two books. For my debut novel I wrote “I Kissed a Ghost”, followed by a collection of 100 Flash Fictions [vast majority of which are only 5 sentences long] entitled “Micro Fiction – An Anthology.” I’m also a blogger with two blog sites and a Book Reviewer on Amazon, GoodReads and LibraryThing.

***

Kev: What’s your latest book called and how did you come up with the title?

Since the title of my latest book is self-explanatory I’ll answer this question in regards to my debut novel, “I Kissed a Ghost.”

I Kissed a Ghost0001

In deciding the title for this book I simply kept on summarizing the book and its storyline until I came up with something with I felt suited the book quite well.

Kev: Which Genre do you have it listed under and does it cross any other genres?

“I Kissed a Ghost” is a:

MG [Mid-Grade]
YA [Young Adult]
Paranormal
Romance
Time Travel

Kev: Tell us a little bit more about it.

In “I Kissed a Ghost”, Mary gets a new classmate named Jonathan who’s a great baseball player and to get on the team, he needs Mary’s help to improve his grades. Six months later when she learns she’s moving, she decides to give him something special–a first kiss. Moving into her new home she soon discovers it has a ghost named George, her age, who takes her on numerous trips to the past of a hundred years ago. As she meets children her own age, everyone teases her about her house being haunted, but no one will go inside. Mary likes his help doing her math homework, writing her reports, and taking her back in time. George and Mary’s interaction grows and she eventually gives him a quick peck on his lips while they’re in the past, which is the only place George is a real boy, for having done something special for her. Can Mary kiss George again at the special date and time he needs to be kissed? What happens afterwards if she does? The answers are all in the book!

Kev: Provide a teaser/short passage from your book.

If you’re interested in reading several UNEDITED excerpts from this book, here is the link to one of my two blog sites:

Kev: When you wrote this work, did you write off-the-cuff or use some kind of formula like an outline?

I consider myself to be a combination of a plotter and that of a pantser; meaning I write a basic outline for the storyline, much in the same manner a sculptor uses metal wire to create the base of whatever he’s creating. And like the sculptor I begin to flesh everything out until I get my desired result.

Kev: Did you research for the backdrop of your story or any other part of it?

Since I had time travel involved in the book’s storyline, going back 100 years, I needed to get the most popular names of children back then, which I got from the Social Security US website under baby names. I also needed to have information regarding party games children played 100 years ago.

Kev: What challenges did this particular work pose for you?

Since this is the first romance novel I’ve been able to complete, my first attempt had been an adult Contemporary romance novel which I never felt in my mind was never good enough even to self-publish. Writing this book had truly been a daunting experience until I was the light at the end of the end and was able to type that elusive final period.

Kev: What methods are using to promote this work?

Right now it’s the usual Tweeting, FaceBook and Google posts telling people about my two books. And from time to time it’s getting interviewed by other authors on their blog like what I’m doing here on Kevin Cooper’s blog.

If anyone is interested in interviewing me or having me do a guest post on your blog, just DM me through my Twitter account.

Kev: Do you have any advice for new authors?

Never take any criticism as criticism. Take it the way I do, take it as a form of guidance and support, especially if it’s coming from another author.

    • THANKS for your kind compliment Mae, It took a wee bit to come with the title. It’s definitely a delightful read as well as a sweet Paranormal Romance novel without any of this scary bits for the young girl in any family or those adults who would like to remember when they were young and had experienced their first kiss with a boy.

      Have a GREAT WEEKEND with your family !!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
