Celebrate With Debut Author Kaia Danielle

Let's meet debut author Kaia Danielle:


What are you looking forward to accomplishing in 2016? 
Kaia: Writing my first full-length novel. Paying off my credit card. Getting rid of this gut. Learning how to sew my own wardrobe. Applying to (and hopefully attending) a writing residency in Martha’s Vineyard.

Can you describe your emotions on selling or seeing your first book published?
Kaia: Bewildered. In awe of myself. The “cha cha cha cha” moment when Celie got her childhood home back in The Color Purple. CeCe Peniston’s “Finally, It’s Happened To Me.” Relief.

What are special qualities and characteristics about your hero and heroine? Any special significance to their names?
Kaia: Kamaria’s name means “changes like the moon” in Swahili. I’ve been wanting to name a heroine that since I first saw it years ago. My favorite Kamaria line goes something like “I fell off the wagon. Now let me figure out how to climb back on it.” I love that she is determined to face her demons head on.

I was looking for an Italian last name for Jack. I chose Alderisi because it is similar to my maiden name. I chose the first name Jack because a strong, straight to the point man needs a strong, short and to the point name. Jack is my ode to the too nice for his own good guy who tend to get overlooked in real life.

What's your favorite snack to go along with (feel free to name) book or movie that you look forward to reading/seeing in 2016?
Kaia: Sangria. Most anticipated releases for 2016 are Forbidden by Beverly Jenkins and Captain America: Civil War.


Calling Her Bluff (Entangled Lovestruck):
Available on Amazon and at other digital retailers

He wasn’t the score she was looking for...

Romance author Kamaria Wilson came to Las Vegas with nothing to lose. A one-night stand with a delicious man is just the distraction she needs…until one night with him doesn’t feel like enough. Panicked, she skips out on the morning-after encore and hides out at the poker tables.

After his hot one-night stand goes MIA, security specialist Jack Aldirisi is sure he’ll never see her again. But when he’s called in to the casino for an unexpected “special assignment,” Lady Luck smiles down on Jack. For the rest of the weekend, he’ll be by his missing woman’s side.

She insists their powerful connection is nothing more than sex. He begs to differ. And this time, he’s calling her bluff.

Author bio:
