Ringing in the New Year with Kalista Kyle!


Kalista Kyle loves to fall in love. Started out reviewing and finding characters she could fall in love with. Then decided to write her own men to love and fall for. She has a great support system with her husband and two children. Usually writes cuddled up with her Pomeranian Eli.   Loves to hear from fans and chat.

Out of the Shadows
West Wind Pack 1

After kicking his abusive boyfriend to the curb, Joshua Perry wants nothing more than to focus on his career. He might be drawn to powerful, dominant men, but he's tired of these guys thinking they own him. Then his new boss comes strolling into the office, looking good enough to lick, and the well-dressed alpha tests Joshua's new resolve.

Caleb isn't oblivious to Joshua's interest, but something isn't right. Joshua is distracted, and every time he looks at his phone, Caleb fears his new assistant might pass out right where he stands. He's trying not to push, but every instinct tells him Joshua needs his help. Now, if he can just convince the fiercely independent blond of this, things would be just fine.

Kicking his lover out on the street wasn't the road to freedom Joshua had expected it to be. The Enforcer won't take no for an answer, and he'll go to any lengths to get Joshua back into his bed, no matter how violent. Can Caleb convince Joshua to accept his help before it's too late? Or will Joshua's desire to stand on his own two feet cost him everything in the end?

Blog Post

My New Year resolution hum…. Well I try not to make those. I like to always challenge myself with goals every day. I do plan on writing a few more stories in the upcoming year.  I have three in the works, Shadow Games (sequel to Out of the Shadows)   Practically Magic, part of the Cupid Inc Series, and New Moon Dawning a brand new series the Silver Lake pack.
I feel every day is a chance to really get out there and make the most of what that day has to offer.  I have had a few bumps in the road for my writing but hopefully the New Year will bring more stories and lots of characters to form and fall in love with.


Behind the Scenes

Q. What inspired you to write your first book? 
A. Love of MM and the Paranormal.

Q. How did you come up with the title? 
A. Haha well I admit it, went through many titles before settling with Out of the Shadows.  I felt it fit. Josh really is coming out of the shadows.

Q. Is there a message in your novel that you hope readers walk away with?
A. I hope everyone that reads my stories is transported into them for a few minutes and falls in love with the characters along the way.

Q. Are there any new authors who have grasped your interest?
A. I am a huge fan of many authors.  Off the top of my head Zayne Michaels and Skye Dragen are really authors to watch.

Q. What are your current projects?
A. Practically Magic for the series Cupid Inc

Q. Name one person you feel supported you outside of family members.
A. Wow there is a list here. I would say in all fairness my friends who are authors. They completely understand what I am going through, and have been there.  Love them all.

Q. Do you recall how your interest in writing originated?
A. I used to win awards in school for writing stories all the time. It would be hard to remember a time I didn’t have a story in my head or on paper.

Q. Give us an insight into your main character. What does he/she do that is so special?
A. Josh, he is really average. But he has a strength inside of himself he is now just exploring. He is learning to stand on his own two feet and to trust himself and his judgment in people.

Q. Why do you write?
A. Because I love to fall in love.

Q. What made you decide to sit down and actually start something?
A. Well encouragement, and I believe when a door opens you should go for it. You really have nothing to lose by trying.

Q. How do you think you’ve evolved creatively?
A. Always expanding my ideas bouncing them off people. Getting things pinned down, lots of reading too.

Q. What was the hardest thing about writing your latest book?
A. Grammar. It is not my friend but we are getting to be buddies now.

Q. What books are you reading at present?
A. Just finished Chained by Evangeline Anderson

Q. Do you think that the cover plays an important part in the buying process?
A. From an author stand point, I want my cover to tell a story, for me that is a successful cover one that you look at and it speaks to you.

Q. What would you say are the main advantages and disadvantages of self-publishing against being published or the other way around?
A. Well I can be in control when I self-publish. If I fail it’s my fault, and if I succeed well I can pat myself on the back but either way I am driving the bus so to speak.

Flash Round

Q. What is your most cherished possession?
A. My dog Eli he is a Pomeranian

Q. How do you feel about being the center of attention? 
A. Shy would rather be the wall flower

Q. What makes you blush?
A. What I write.

Q. How do you feel, generally, about the opposite sex?
A. Men are good very good, I love them so much I even write about them.
