Three Times A Charm with Kama Falzoi Post and InHUMAN

You may remember that I participated in the cover reveal for InHuman by Kama Falzoi Post. And now I’m happy to host Kama herself as she celebrates the release of her book. Welcome to Three Times A Charm, Kama. Tell us a little about you.

I discovered a love of writing as a young girl and haven’t looked back since. My short stories have appeared in various online and print magazines, as well as an anthology of speculative fiction.  InHUMAN is my first young adult novel. When I’m not writing, you can find me living on the outskirts of a small city with my husband, son, step-kids, and too many cats.

Congratulations on the release. There is nothing like a book release and the best part is each release is as exciting as the one before. It never gets old. Please tell us about your book.

Mira’s mother sizes up bodies at the morgue like she’s rifling through the sales rack, until she finds one just right for the one they call Adam. Since Adam’s survival is the key to drawing out the Conduit—a slippery sort bent on evacuating souls from their human bodies—Mira must help him pass for a typical teenage boy and blend in.

Ironic, because blending in is has always been a challenge for her, especially with hair the color of a Dorito. But at their small, secluded prep school, blending in is a matter of life and death. Because the Conduit is watching.

I recommend my book to readers who like:

·        Rick Yancey, THE 5th WAVE
·        Jennifer L. Armentrout, OBSIDIAN
·        Stephanie Meyer, THE HOST

Oh, jeez, I loved all three of those recs. Now I’m itching to read InHuman. Let’s switch gears. In order to know your writing, we want to get to know you better. Give us the top three responses to the following:

Top 3 things you learned about the business after becoming a writer.

    1. Writing really is a business, and it helps to look at it like that. Shifting my perspective a bit and shaking my preconceptions about *being an author* (dreamy look) helped me keep a cool head when things didn’t go as planned.
    2. People in this business are awesome, and they really want to help you succeed. Listen to them.
    3. Writing is the easy part. But it is only the beginning of the journey.

Top 3 snacks to munch on while working.

    1. Every kind of crunchy food.
    2. My fingernails.
    3. Red wine. But not too much, or my characters make stupid decisions.

Top 3 favorite places.

    1. Snorkeling off Cinnamon Bay in St. John, Virgin Islands
    2. Butchering common Spanish phrases in Malaga, Spain
    3. Target.
Fingernails and stupid decisions - *snort*.  Kama, share with us all the places our readers can find more about you and InHUMAN.

    1. Green with envy here. I'll be lucky if I can go to the public pool. Oh wait, I don't like public pools. Snort.
