Welcome Kate Marie Robbins

I would like to introduce Kate Marie Robbins today :)

She is an Indie Author just starting out ~
Her work will include:
A poem called Live...Forever that will be featured in Broken Hearts, Strong Spirits - Remembrance Book
Her first book in the Indigo Trilogy entitled Indigo ~ Available Late May 2013
A short story called Cinder that will be featured in a modern fairytale anthology
A short story called Flesh & Soul that will be featured in a horror anthology


What is your preferred genre?
Fantasy and Sci Fi
Are you an author, cover artist or both?
I am mainly an author, but I'm doing all of my own cover art!
What inspired you to do what you do?
It all started with Indigo.  The idea came from a song.  The words spoke to me, and I thought to myself, this would make for the beginnings of an amazing story.  It originally was going to be a children's fairytale, with tons of art work, but once I started writing, it turned into so much more than that, a lot more complex.

If you couldn't continue doing what you do, what would be your second choice as a career?
A painter or a singer. I'm a very creative soul.
Tell us something silly that you've done in the past 24 hours.
I listened to Walk Off the Earth (a band) with my cat!  They're his favorite band.  I'm seriously not kidding about that fact. Every time I play them, he curls up on my computer desk with his head right next to one of the speakers!
Who is your favorite character of all time in a book?
Mary "Jacky" Faber from the Bloody Jack series
Who is your favorite character of all time from a movie?
Oh goodness, so many choices. I'm going to have to go with either Captain Jack Sparrow (POTC) or Ben Gates (National Treasure)

Kate has also provided us an excerpt of her soon to be released book, Indigo:

“I don’t expect you to say anything.  I just thought that you should know.  No, that isn’t why I chose to help you.  You needed help.  I wasn’t about to let a fellow guard be punished because he doesn’t have a mind for battle strategy.  I don’t expect anything in return from you.  It’s enough knowing that my ideas will be used to keep us all safe from the Dark Warriors."  She turned away, to hide the fact that she was blushing.  “It is getting late,” she continued, once she had regained her composure.  “We both need to get some sleep, especially you.”

“Yes, of course.”  Stupid, stupid, stupid.  You cannot leave things like this.  Do not walk out of this room without telling her the truth.  I had to do it.  After all she had done for me, all she was risking for me.  I couldn’t lie to her.  I just couldn’t.  Could I?

I finished my wine, and stood, frozen in place.  Somehow, I forced one foot in front of the other, moving towards her.  She looked at me, nervous, confused.  I don’t think she knew what to say or do at that point.

I pulled her into my arms, holding her gently.  I swept the hair away from her eyes, her gorgeous wisteria eyes, and placed it behind her ears.  I leaned in slowly, and kissed her, feeling her lips pressed softly against mine.  They lingered there, as long as I dared.  “You’re not the only one with secrets.  Once this is all over with, I fully intend to marry you.  To hell with what anyone thinks or says.  That is, if you’ll have me.”  It left her breathless.

I tried to pull away from her, knowing that I needed to go.  I would need to sleep.  She held onto me and wouldn’t let go.  “Stay,” she pleaded.

Who was I to tell her no?

Thank you so much Kate for being a featured artist on my blog today!  We all wish you all the best with your future endeavors... 
Be on the lookout for a link to Indigo when it's ready for purchase :)
