Hi and hello! Today, I have with me a few special guests to speak with from my book, Komplex Sinplicities. Let’s see, we have with us Aldwin, from The Game, Carly, from No More Apart, Stephen, from The Unwelcomed Guest, and Amberly, from The Cereal Thief. Let’s get started!
KR: Ok! So, in no particular order, let’s start with Carly. Hello, Carly!
Carly: Hi! How are you?
KR: I’m good! I’m good! Welcome! And thank you for joining us today!
Carly: Thank you! Glad to be here!
KR: No problem! So, uh, in the story, No More Apart, you played a wife who had a beautiful life ahead of her and was brutally murdered.
Me: Wanna tell us how you felt about playing that part?
Carly: Well, you wrote it, of course, but it was actually pretty intense! Robert (no offense, Robert!) is a scary looking guy. So when he came after me to do the rape thing, most of that, from me, wasn’t acting. It was for real!
KR: Well, you weren’t suppose to know what was about to happen. We needed that raw emotion for the readers, ya know?
Carly: *chuckles* Yeah, but you could have written me a heads up! That guy is spooky as hell! I thought I was going to have a frick’n heart attack!
KR: Yeah, except you were horrifically mutilated . . . .
Carly: Erm, yes. I was.
KR: Sorry. Just kidding. Well, I feel like you played the role very well. It was a graphic scene between you and Robert!
Carly: Oh, god, no kidding! And poor Johnny getting all smashed up and everything!
KR: The poor guy. *chuckles* He’s a good guy, but who cares, right?
Carly: O-o-oh ho ho ho you’re so mean!
Carly: Harsh, but it is true! At least he didn’t have a guy’s head inside his body! *chuckles*
KR: The joys of being a writer. *laughs* Thanks, Carly! It’s been a pleasure. Next up? Aldwin! Get in here, hero! Aldwin from The Game, everybody!
Aldwin: That would be me, yes. Thank you.
KR: Whatever. So! Quite a show there with the suicide club thing.
Aldwin: I wouldn’t exactly call it a “club”.
KR: No, you wouldn’t. But I would. And I did!
KR: So, Aldwin, what did you think of the part I wrote for you?
Aldwin: Well, since you asked, I think . . .
KR: And where did you find these suicidal club members? How did you get a group of people together . . . that all wanted to . . . kill yourselves?
Aldwin: Um, it’s called fiction. It wasn’t real, Kyran.
KR: Yes, it was. Fiction, I mean.
Aldwin: It was a funny story though.
KR: That happens to be my opinion, also! Wow! We have so much in common!
Aldwin: No, I don’t . . .
KR: Thank you Aldwin! It was great having you here so I could waste your time!
Aldwin: Wasting the readers’ time . . . .
KR: Oh, yeah? You want to bring that attitude to the table? You just wait until after this interview, and see how I kill you off this time! *clears throat* Right! So! Let’s all give a big round of applause to our next guest, Stephen!
Stephen: Hey, Kyran!
KR: Hey, Stephen! How’s that trigger finger?
Stephen: *chuckles* Well, it’s better now! But you damn near broke it when you had me use that pistol as a damn carpenter’s mallet!
KR: Anyway, Stephen, that role in The Unwelcomed Guest was pretty twisted!
Stephen: Yes, it was rather sick, really.
KR: Yeah, disturbing! So, tell us, how hard was it for you to play that role? I mean, what was your method?
Stephen: I didn’t have a certain method or anything. It was more like me just knowing none of it was real and just moving forward with the scene.
KR: If you had a choice, how would you have written the story differently?
Stephen: Oh! Wow! The author asking the character in his story how they would write the story?
KR/Stephen: *both laugh*
KR: Well, just throw out an idea. Anything!
Stephen: Ok, well, I think I would had made it more clear, in a hinted sort of way, that the family’s house I went to wasn’t my actual family, you know?
KR: But then the ending would’ve been spoiled for the readers!
Stephen: Well, you asked. *chuckles*
KR: Ha! Ha! Yes I did. Thank you, Stephen. Our last guest played more of a supporting role, but she was fantastic nonetheless! Let’s bring in Amberly! Hello, Amberly!
Amberly: *smiling* Hi!
KR: Amberly, you played an annoyed older sister who was just . . . bored with life, bored with the world, bored with . . .
Amberly: Bored with being held hostage!
KR: Indeed! Yes! Like you get held hostage every other day or something.
KR: You played the part good, I think, but you don’t seem like the annoyed type?
Amberly: *more laughing* No, I’m not, but it seems to be my thing, so I just go along with it. I’m actually a happy-go-lucky sort of chick.
KR: Yeah, I get that from you! So, tell us, what did you like most about the story?
Amberly: Oh, gosh! What did I not like? I absolutely loved Brynn! She kept me rolling! Like, I mean, how many times did you have to stop typing because the story fell apart because of her?
KR: *laughs* She was a hoot, for sure!
Amberly: But, seriously, I also liked the other characters, too. And the names you came up with for those cereals? OMG! *laughs*
KR: Oh, the cereals! *laughs* Did you ever eat any of them?
Amberly: No! But I so-o-o wanted to try them!
KR: To be honest? So did I! *chuckles* So, thank you, Amberly! It was a pleasure having you in my book! Maybe we can do a part two to the story in the future?
Amberly: I would very much like to do a sequel! And thank you, too!
KR: You’re most welcome! So, that’s all the time we have today. I’d like to thank you for visiting my website. I hope, if you have read Komplex Sinplicities, that you have enjoyed it, and, if not, then you can go here to grab a copy for yourself.
I’d like to hear from you guys, so drop me a line! I may not be able to reply to all of them, but I will certainly read them. And as always, have an awesome day!
