1. I hear you have shapeshifters in your novels. Tell us about those books.
My shapeshifters are unusual in that they don’t personally change shape — they trade places with their bondmates. Pietas and Dessy are twins and immortal. They are thousands of years old and their bondmates are twin dragons. Pietas and Stormsinger create thunderstorms and rain at will. Dessy and Fireshade summon ice and snow.
2. Why did you add shapeshifters to your books?
I love dragons and have a pair of statues near my desk. The pair is named for my two characters. The blue one (right) is Pietas/Stormsinger and the other is Dessy/Fireshade. Having these two nearby is good inspiration.
3. What other romances have you written?
I write multiple genres, including space opera, science fiction, fantasy, non-fiction, contemporary holiday romance, and science fiction romance. I used to write erotic romance, but I have moved to sweeter stories. Except for one trilogy, all my books are rated between G and PG13. In those books, there is no explicit content or profanity.
4. How do you promote your books?
Most of my promotion is sharing stories and insights about my characters. I’m active on Facebook and Twitter, and I have a huge collection of images on Pinterest. Pietas has a board with multiple sub-folders, each with unique images. I have one dedicated solely to dragons. https://www.pinterest.com/kayelleallen/bringer-of-chaos-pietas/dragons/ and another with panthers. https://www.pinterest.com/kayelleallen/bringer-of-chaos-pietas/panthers/
