Current Release: Buried Threads

Describe your current release in two sentences?

A disturbing prophecy sends a treasure hunting duo on an urgent race to rescue a country in Kaylin McFarren’s heart pounding new novel, Buried Threads. Full of erotic suspense and wild adventures, this is one trip readers will never forget!

What are you working on?

I'm currently writing Banished Threads - the third book in the Threads series. While enjoying a much-earned vacation in England, Rachel Lyons and Chase Cohen are introduced to a secret mystical society by her jet-setting uncle and shortly after, a collection of priceless Morris Graves’ paintings turns up missing. Drawn into the mystery, the lovers and their salvage crew take up residence at the Lyons’ stately manor. However, acquiring the cooperation of locals and trust of the maligning brotherhood seems improvable, convincing Rachel to end their involvement – until she discovers the secret her uncle has been harboring for years.

Getting a book to market often takes a village. Who has helped you on the way?

There were lots of people who helped with my career and have continued to encouraged me with my writing: my oldest daughter (an established author), my husband (also my greatest supporter), fellow authors, critique partners, my niece (an avid reader), close personal friends, newspaper publishers, a professional editor, a publisher, a New York agent, family attorney, a hospital foundation board, business associates, store managers, clerks in retail outlets, a website creator, an artist, graphic designer, promoters, newsletter subscribers, blog site owners, author groups, and the general public…the list goes on and on.

Do you have a favorite or interesting reader meet moment?

I met Nora Roberts at a "Dead of Night" book signing event at a RWA conference. This book included stories by Mary Blayney, Ruth Ryan Langan and Mary Kay McComas - new, never published before authors - and after realizing I was up for a Golden Heart award for a novel I wrote with my daughter, she laughed and said, "Good for you. Personally, I could never write a book with a relative...let alone a daughter."

What is your favorite way to procrastinate?

When there is something I really need to do but can't seem to get motivated, I'll answer emails, fold laundry, tidy the house, and pour myself a glass of Merlot. When the wine is gone, so are my doubts and hesitation, and I'll end up pushing myself to follow through with the deed.

My thanks to everyone who has lent their support by purchasing Kaylin McFarren novels. If you haven't done so yet, please take a moment to check out Buried Threads - the stand alone, second edition in the Threads series.
