”What would you like to tell everyone about you that they wouldn't already know from reading your books?”
I'm a natural blonde
Can you tell us your latest news?
Invicta: Salvation is releasing on July 13 as part of The Naughty Box 2
When did you first consider yourself a writer?
September 2012 when I signed my first publ contract with Evernight Publishing
What inspired you to write your first book?
The characters in my head wouldn't leave me alone. I threatened them, but they wouldn't leave, only threatened back, to explode my brain
Do you have a specific writing style?
Well, I write in first person, from a man's pov, a cocky tone and pretty blunt. I do curse like a sailor. I think I was probably a man in a past life or something
How did you come up with the title?
I came up with Invicta from a late night infomercial
“What do you want your readers to get out of your novels?”
That love is love, and it doesn't matter your age, gender, race you work for it and fight for what you believe in
“Is the book mostly fantasy or do you think these situations could actually happen?”
Oh these situations could definitely happen
Now I love music just as much as reading, I normally listen to music while I am reading. Do you think that you characters have theme songs? If so what would they be?
“Are the experiences fact based or from your imagination?”
Just my imagination
“Which other authors do you feel have had the most influences on you as both a reader and a writer?”
Books by Poppet Author
What book are you reading now?
At the moment, I'm not reading anything, but sure am anxious to get my hands on Kindle Alexander's
”Have there been any authors that interest you by their writing styles or subjects?” Absolutely so, Anne Rice of course, but Indie authors are Poppet Author, Kindle Alexander and Rue Volley
What are your current projects?
The Invicta Series which is a five part series, and on
December 5 of this year, the final story in The Passion Series will be out
Do you see writing as a career?
If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?
Of course, there is always something you would change, but the pattern and storyline of the book wouldn't change
Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?
Invicta Salvation is a story of Holt and Kade, how they connected and went through their journey for fifteen years. They achieve Invicta, a men's go-go club, which soon becomes more that a club on book two. They didn't want any of their dancers to go through the things they did. The actual place becomes their safe haven and the people become more that just co-worker's. They actually will go through situations and help each other resolve or figure out how to handle them as a family unit
Who are your three favorite authors and what is it that really strikes you about their work? Poppet Author, her passion and her research skills. You can bet if it's in her books, it's been researched thoroughly. Rue Volley-her imagination and the way she can bend the rules. I watched her from the very beginning, her drive and her perseverance and determination. Kindle Alexander-for her sincerity. Her passion is incredible and drives. She is one of the most-tender hearted and caring people that I know.
“Have you done any promotional tours for your books?”
No never have before
Who designed the covers?
The Invicta Series, all of the covers are being done by a wonderful lady, Karrie Jax. She is a good friend of mine and does an excellent job. For Eight Second Cowboy it was Poppet who did it and the Passion Series and Naughty Box designs it was Rue Volley
What was the hardest part of writing your book?
Deciding what parts to reveal in first book and what to reveal in the other ones
“What did you learn from writing your book?”
That when you fight hard enough anything is achievable
Do you have any advice for other writers?
To keep writing and not let anyone hold you back. Follow your passion and dreams
Do have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
To thank them for all the support and love they've shown. To also say thanks to such a tight nit group, the M/M readers and authors are some of the most dedicated and loyal people that I know.
Which comes first for you, the character's story or, the idea for the novel?
For me, the story idea
What advice do you have for someone who would like to become a published writer?
To watch the authors they want to be like and do what they do. Hone your skill and always weigh the options. Read the contract thoroughly and don't be afraid to ask questions, we all had too
Is there anything else that you would like to add?
Just that Invicta Salvation is available now. And Invicta Sanctuary will be released on the 13 July, as part of the Naughty Box 2
I just want to say thank you so much for taking the time to answer these for my readers and I. I look forward to seeing more work from you in the future.
Thank you so much for having me on. You are an awesome chick!

As Kaiden McKenzie and Holt Mitchell prepare to celebrate their fifteenth anniversary, and the grand opening of their new club, Invicta, they take a look back on how their lives together began.
When Holt wakes up to an outraged father, he finds himself suddenly homeless and hungry. With the help and caring of a certain bad guy, Holt finds life isn’t quite so bad as it seems. All he needed was the right man to guide him along.
Kade has spent his life running from anyone and everyone who tries to get close, but when he meets up with Holt, he suddenly finds himself wishing for something more. Who knew he was someone’s knight in shining tattoos…
Book Two INVICTA: SANCTUARY will be apart of the naughty box 2 published by HOT INK PRESS on July 13th 2014
Short, Sexy and oh so Steamy!! Piper Kay has taken her love for a certain Cockyboy (her cover model) and built a love story around him, for him, and it is definitely porn on paper, but not in a bad way.
Kaiden McKenzie is all attitude and ink. Very much a loner and happy with that, he doesn't get emotionally invested. But what should have been a one night stand with a cute cowboy is about to become the ride of his life. When Holt Mitchell's father finds him and Kade the morning after, he flips and kicks his son out. Kade feels for the guy and while the sex was pretty fantastic, he refuses to get involved. Over the next twenty four hours though, Kade becomes very emotionally involved and when Holt is put in harms way, Kade stakes his claim.
This story starts fifteen years after that morning after when Kade was a shoulder for Holt to cry on. They've become lovers and best friends and now they are opening their dream business together. But Holt still battles insecurity where his partner is concerned, and Kade has to prove to his man that he is the only one for him. I don't always like stories that go from present to past and back to the present, but Kay kept the time lines clear and the way this story was written was vital to the presence of the characters.
As I said in the beginning, this book is Kay's homage to her favorite gay porn star, cockyboy Jake Bass, he is Kade in every way, shape and form. The attitude, the tattoos, the way he exudes confidence and sex appeal... Kay managed to carry all of that over into the character of Kade. I loved the way they balanced each other out. While they were wildly different people they came together and Holt showed Kade that he was worthy of love, while Kade protects Holt and gives him a part of himself that he's never given to anyone else. It's a bad boy love story! I cannot wait for book two.
What Others are saying About INVICTA
Another great read from Piper By Valerie
Piper Kay did it again!! Wow I totally loved this book.
Piper Kay Is the Master of M/M Romance By Monique
This book is hot as hell! A must read! Piper really know how to get the blood flowing. I loved Kade. I could see him as Jake Bass.
WOW! GREAT! FANTASTIC! LOVED IT!!
Terrific and HOT as only Piper Kay can write characters with depth. I loved the relationship between Kade and Holt. The street smart Kade was made for the unsuspecting country bumpkin Holt. The time they spent in the sheets was insta-wet, hot and then some. Oh, did I mention hot??
