Interview & #Giveaway: Taking Chances by Kimberley O’Malley @K_OMalley67


Please give a HUGE welcome to Kimberley O’Malley, author of Taking Chances! Read on below for more info and a GIVEAWAY!



Hi! Would you tell us a little bit about yourself?
Hi!! I’m a Yankee who’s quite happy to be living in NC. I wear many hats, including writer, wife, soccer Mom, and nurse. My debut novel released in March and book two this week. My biggest regret is that I cannot spend my entire life in flip flops.

Do you have anything you would like to say to your readers?

Writing and publishing my books is a dream come true for me. I am so incredibly thankful to my readers. I love to interact with them on social media or at signings. I am brand new to this and still finding my way, so their support and interest is amazing. 

Do you write an outline before starting a book or just write? Never! I write an outline as I finish each chapter so that I can remember what happened…

I know authors get asked this a lot but do you have any advice that you would give to aspiring writers?
Never give up! If it’s your dream, then you’ll find a way, even if it takes you 15 years. Soak up the knowledge around you, but don’t let anyone tell you it has to be a certain way. Learn from others. Take what works for you and move on. Don’t skimp on editing and cover art.

Which came first for you, the characters or the plot?
The characters always come first. They are the most important part of my books. They are what I look for in the books I read.

Where can we purchase this book?
Amazon, B&N, Smashwords, & KOBO

Can we expect more novels from you in 2017?
I hope to release a book in September and again in December.

Do you think you will have a follow up book to this novel or is it just a stand-alone novel?
Taking Chances is the second book of my Windsor Falls Series. I hope to write seven or eight. The biggest challenge is deciding who gets their own book. I have so many characters running around in my head.

What is the hardest part of writing in your opinion?
This makes me laugh. I honestly thought the hardest part was writing the book. Wrong! The hardest part is everything else that you must do: editing, promotion, etc.

Where do you see yourself at in five years—writing wise?
It’s not about the money for me, although I would love to be able to write full time at some point. What I really want is to be recognizable at that time. Not Angelina Jolie, but have a larger following of readers. I love to write romance novels because I love to read romance novels. When I read a book I loved, there’s a feeling of sadness when it ends. I want to know what happens next. That’s what I want my readers to say about me.

If you could live in the world you have created, would you? If no, why not?
I would absolutely live in Windsor Falls, NC if I could. It’s based on some towns in the Blue Ridge Mountains of my home state with a splash of some places in New England that I love. The people there are friendly and open and sometimes a bit quirky.

What is your favorite quote, by whom, and why?

“Don’t worry about a thing, ‘Cause every little thing is gonna be alright.” Bob Marley. This is my mantra. I’m not an anxious person but am surrounded by them.

Do you have any upcoming appearances that you would like to share with us?
            I will be signing at For the Love of Books & Raleigh August 5 10AM-4PM


Random Quickies!


Pepsi or coke? Pepsi Zero & Diet Mtn. Dew

Cats or dogs? Dogs rule!!

Do you read more than you write? I wish…

Hardback/Paperback or eReader? Paperback and eReader, although I am a very recent convert to the eReader.

Favorite color? Blue-from Carolina Blue to Cobalt

If a laptop, what kind do you own and would you recommend it to other authors? I have a new Dell Inspiron 11, 3000 series. It’s light and small which makes it so much easier for travel. And it’s a pretty blue… I love it!!

Have you ever been out of the state where you live? I have been to 26 states and about a dozen countries. I have lives in 3 states and 2 countries.

Katie Fitzgerald learned the hard way about love. She vowed to never get involved with a doctor at work, and when she did, he broke her heart. Older and wiser, Katie is serious about never getting hurt again. Dr. Flynn Reynolds, staff cardiologist at Windsor Falls Memorial, just might be the man to change her mind. Attraction explodes between the two from their very first meeting. But Katie is determined to protect her heart. Will Flynn convince her to take another chance?

She shares her life with an amazing husband of more than twenty years, two teenagers, and one very sweet Shetland Sheepdog, Molly.
