Today Kristy Denice Bock will be talking about how she became a writer and what inspired her in regard to the story she's promoting.
* When I was fourteen years old, my parents bought me an electronic type writer. I think I’ve been writing stories as long as I’ve been able to read them. There is simply something so magical about creating a world that only you know about, and then sharing that world with others.
* I remember when I was a child, I would write stories about princesses who could defeat insurmountable odds because I believed that the female characters I read about were undervalued. They were always waiting on someone to save them. Why couldn’t they just save themselves?
* Even in the books I read, I hate when the damsel in distress waits to be rescued. Girl please. Pick up a sword, swing it at the dragon and pick the lock with your hair pin. Then go find yourself a prince worthy of your time, and ride off into the sunset, at his side.
* What inspired me to write Divine Touch was a video game I used to play. I write a storyline as a volunteer for this game, and it centered around six gods and goddesses. They wreaked havoc on unsuspecting players. It was fun to play both the omnipotent characters, as well as the average person who had limits to what they could accomplish.
* When it came time to actually write the story, I decided that I wanted all my gods to be women. I wanted to create a world where women ruled. They rule with their hearts, as well as their common sense and the intelligence they were born with. It’s not always pretty, but it is always an entertaining ride.
* There are six Goddesses in Divine Touch. The premise is that these Goddesses came from another place, they left to avoid war and settled on Earth not long after the dawn of man. When man was created, guidelines were put in place to ensure that the Goddesses would never harm Earth’s natural inhabitants. A council was created to balance the omnipotent power of the Goddesses with the feeble nature of mankind.
* In Divine Touch, the lead Goddess, Noxia, has a daughter. In order to keep with the balance, her daughter has to complete three trials of Humanity. She has to prove she’s worthy to live among the humans with the power she was born with. If she fails, she will be put to death.
* This story is about learning to be who you were meant to be, while accepting accountability for your actions. Kate was born the daughter of a Goddess, but she’s still a sassy, strong independent female.
* I hope you enjoy reading Divine Touch as much as I have enjoyed writing it. I love to hear from anyone who has read my stories, please feel free to reach out!
* “Okay look, I'm just going to get this over with,” Cole said. Without a further word on the subject, Cole's head leaned back as his body changed to a form Zane was all too familiar with.
* Zane tried to maintain rigid control on the beast within him. The desire to prove alpha status could not be contained. His fingers shook, the need to dominate drove him. The idea of harming the young wolf made him fight hard to control himself.
* It was a heedless battle, but the beast would not be contained. The harder he fought, the more the beast raged. He felt the change come upon him before he could control it. His senses heightened, he could smell the other wolf’s presence. With his last coherent ability, he projected his thoughts out, telling the young wolf to run. The beast was free.
* The young wolf cocked its head to the side, looking at the larger version. It dropped down on its hindquarters, extending its front paws forward with its head lowered. The beast recognized a sign of submission. The beast stood over the young wolf and growled. It remained unsatisfied with an unearned submission. Its jaws snapped at the young wolf’s ear, causing the smaller creature to jump back in surprise.
* The beast goaded the wolf until it openly attacked. Their sounds of aggression filled the room as they wrestled each other to the ground. Though the younger wolf was smaller, it made up for its lack of size by speed and agility. When its teeth sank into the foreleg of the older wolf the battle turned. It went from a token fight to a fierce battle of wills. The younger wolf continued to use its smaller statute to its advantage.
* Each time the beast would force the wolf down, it would find a way to escape the hold. With each passing moment a respect was gained. Respect, however, was not something that was worth losing over. The beast howled in delight as his teeth bit into the neck of the wolf, pinning it to the ground.
* “When your pissing contest is over, I was promised ice cream, a movie, and Holland.” The beast recognized the scent of its mate. It let go of the wolf and backed away.
* A scream caused all heads to turn in the direction of the door Kate had just entered. The beast watched in disgust as the pale creature crumpled to the ground.
