Interview: KAT MARTIN! Author of BEYOND DANGER

Today we have a Q&A with author Kat Martin! Be sure to check out the book info and buy links under the interview!

Your perfect writing conditions - do you like complete quiet, music playing, etc?I’m a complete quiet person.  I want to be completely in the scene I’m writing.  Distractions make that harder to do. 
What are you reading right now?Just finished the new Jack Reacher novel.  Currently reading Cynthia Eden’s Shattered.
 Do you have writing goals (so many words per day/per week), or do you just write whenever inspiration strikes?
I try to write 100 finished pages a month.  A book in five months, a month to review, rewrite or make changes.  I am usually on schedule as much as possible.  If you want to meet your deadlines, you can’t just write “when inspiration strikes.”
 If you could spend time with one of your characters from this book, who would it be?
Definitely Beau Reese!  Love to go for a ride with him in his amazing Lamborghini.  But Cassidy, a lady detective, would be great fun to talk to.  Maybe get some new plot ideas…
 Any upcoming plans for new books?
Up next for me is Beyond Control.  That’s the final book in my Texas Trilogy, Josh Cain’s story.  Josh is Lincoln Cain’s brother from Beyond Reason.  Josh is former military, a guy who wants to make his Texas ranch a success and find some peace and quiet.   Unfortunately, when Victoria Bradford shows up with her four year old daughter trouble is what he finds instead.
 What do you love the most about the writing/publishing process? 
One of the best parts is going through the book after you have reached The End.  That’s when you get to look at the novel as a reader instead of a writer and enjoy all your hard work.  And hopefully discover you like it!
 What do you dislike the most about the writing/publishing process?
I don’t like writing backstory.  I am a go-forward person.  I like to see/figure out what’s going to happen next.  I hate the copyediting portion of the process.  I always feel I have made the book the very best I could make it.  I don’t much like changing it after I am finished.

Beyond Danger is Beau’s story.  Mega-rich, black-haired, and blue-eyed, Beau is gorgeous to look at, and flashy.  He was an amateur race car driver, sort of a Texas Paul Newman, before he left the racing circuit.  Beau loves fast cars and fast women.  
   He is also wanted for murder. 
   That’s where private investigator, Cassidy Jones, comes in.  She’s smart and she’s no pushover, exactly the woman for Beau.  Best of all, she’s determined to prove his innocence.  

“Kat Martin’s Texas Trilogy returns with a gripping new romantic suspense novel featuring Beau Reese and Cassidy Jones. This dynamic duo embarks on a fascinating journey to solve a high-profile crime in Texas. Cutting edge and incredibly thrilling, Martin once again proves she’s a romantic suspense mastermind! Book two, BEYOND DANGER, is compelling with unexpected twists. Long-time fans of Kat Martin will not be disappointed!”- RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars

New York Times bestselling author Kat Martin brings page-turning suspense to a tale of secrets and passions turned deadly . . .
Texas mogul Beau Reese is furious. All six feet three obscenely wealthy, good-looking inches of him. His sixty-year-old father, Stewart, a former state senator no less, has impregnated a teenager. Barely able to contain his anger, Beau is in for another surprise. It appears that Stewart has moved an entirely different woman into the house . . .
Beau assumes that stunning Cassidy Jones is his father’s mistress. At least she’s of age. But those concerns take a sudden backseat when he finds Stewart in a pool of blood on the floor of his study—and Cassidy walks in to find Beau with his hand on the murder weapon.
The shocks just keep coming. Someone was following Stewart, and Cassidy is the detective hired to find out who and why. Now she’ll have to find his killer instead. Her gut tells her it wasn’t Beau. And Beau’s instincts tell him it wasn’t Cassidy. Determined to track down the truth, they form an uneasy alliance—one that will bring them closer to each other—closer to danger and beyond . . .
