I love older mc's (18+)! I'd like to see some good dystopian, more male mc's too, and then of course anything scifi/fantasy/paranormal with something new and unusual.
1. How did you decide to get into editing/publishing?
Curiosity Quills' owner, Alisa Gus, and I became really good friends over the last year. She wanted me to publish with them, and I turned her down for another company who ended up treating me as if I was a barnacle on the bottom of a ship. Alisa and I knew we'd work together one day, but at the time we didn't realize in what capacity. When she told me she and her husband were expecting, an idea formed in my head, and I offered to help read subs for CQ. Thank God for that! Because I wound up leaving my former publishing company--more like fleeing than leaving--and CQP published my first title, Wilde's Fire.
2. Why did you choose the publisher you are working with now?
Would you laugh if I say I'm pretty sure fate put us together and the choice had little to do with me?
3. What's your favorite part of the job?
I love new authors and the excitement they bring. Telling a person CQP is going to publish their work is probably the most exciting thing ever.
4. What is your current favorite book that you could read over and over?
A year ago, I would have said The Hunger Games. Right now, I'm pretty sure Divergent is something I'd read a million times over.
And a little more to help you get to know Krystal:
She's happily married to the love of herlife and raising three beautiful children in Virginia. They live just outside Washington, D.C. and every day she wakes up to find herself stuck in traffic trying to get there. The silver lining in that commute? It gives her the time to think about her characters in full detail.
If you get a chance, ask her about organized hitchhiking.
