After I sent in the story, I realized the world I'd created was huge and had all kinds of potential. I'm really enjoying exploring all those stories now. The idea for book #2 came out of knowing what was going to happen to a secondary character from book #1 (a character who will be a hero farther on in the series). Book #3 was actually the first story I wrote in the world after the short story, when I was just getting to know the tiger shifters. It became book #3, though, after I realized I wanted to tell a couple of other stories first.

I'm never quite sure how to answer the question of where the ideas come from, though, because I'm usually mulling things over, get a few characters in my head, and then run with "what if" questions to expand on their story. I go after the ideas as often as the ideas come to me. And the stories can come from anywhere.(less)

I do have to walk away from a story sometimes to work out problems or issues with the story. When that happens I usually take a walk or a shower--go someplace I can think uninterrupted--and let my imagination work through the problem. Then I get back to writing.(less)

“What she'd thought was love before felt like a girlhood crush compared to the feeling now crashing over her. It sucked her under like riding whitewater rapids, spinning her around, and tossing her wildly into the air. There was no land, no balance, nothing to hold on to except Victor. In those quiet moments, he captured her loyalty and heart forever. She was done.”
Kat Simons, Once Upon a Tiger

“When he remembered, his indrawn breath pulled her scent into his mouth, coating his tongue with her taste. He swallowed that delicious flavor as his heartbeat sped.”
Kat Simons, Once Upon a Tiger

“Besides being on the run for my life for the last couple of weeks, shooting living beings, being held hostage, kidnapped , nearly raped and murdered,watching people be ripped apart, facing off against not one but two crazy shapeshifters, and oh yeah, having to watch you fight a life-or-death battle because of me. Twice. Besides all that, no of course nothing’s wrong.”
Kat Simons, Here There Be Tigers

Janice Bolick Hope you had a beautiful 4th of July.


message 10: by Kat

Kat Simons Thanks, Janice! You too!


Janice Bolick Have a beautiful 1st day of Summer, tomorrow.


Janice Bolick Thank you very much. I'd love to meet those characters, in real life--if they had been real-- well...maybe...


message 7: by Kat

Kat Simons Thanks so much, Janice! I'm really pleased you could find Along Came a Tiger! I'll keep working on getting the others into print for you. *grin* Have a great week!


Janice Bolick Thank you so much. I just got Along Came a Tiger, today, and have been skimming it...love it. I do have a Nook --which I, yet, to learn how to use-- but I still really prefer the various hardcopy editions. I found this message, tonight, after I sent you a question. I can hardly wait to read the whole Tiger Shifter series, and I'll be patient. Have a great evening.


message 5: by Kat

Kat Simons Thanks for ordering the book, Janice! I hope you enjoy it.

Along Came a Tiger should be available to order in print as well (that's book #2). Here There Be Tigers (book #3) is working its way into the system now, so it should be available to order soon. The rest aren't in print yet, but I'm working on it (slowly!) I'll keep you updated. Thanks again!


Janice Bolick I ordered Once Upon a Tiger, at Barnes & Noble, but having Trouble finding the other books in the Tiger Shifter series in hardcopy format. Oh, well...I'll keep trying.


Janice Bolick Thank you, much, Kat.


message 2: by Kat

Kat Simons Thanks, Janice! I appreciate that. You have a great day too!


Janice Bolick Thank you for friending me. I have yt to find your books in any of the bookstores I can get to, so I may need to special order. Your Tiger Shifter series caught my interest, as I was born a year of the water tiger. Have a great day.
