If Blogger Week at the Divas must come to an end (*sigh*) at least it’s ending on a high. With the very wonderful, very lovable Kitty Kelly from The Smutty Kitty.
Kelly is another blogger who has become a very close and very dear friend of the Divas.
She’s also become a vital part of my writing life, and an integral part of my personal life. I would miss my daily texts with her horribly if they ever stopped. (And now that Kelly has finally worked out there’s a time difference between Texas and Sydney, I’m enjoying her texts even more.)
We love and adore this Kitty Cat, and welcome her to the Divas blog
Who is Kitty Kelly, and why Kitty?
When I started joining Yahoo groups to talk about these wonderfully smutty books I found I noticed there were a fair share of Kelly’s roaming around. My email has been kittykelly28 since I was 12 and my mom always called me kitten, so my reader alter ego was born. KittyKelly doesn’t hold back. Lol She doesn’t get embarrassed and has no problem showing you what’s under her tutu. And when the ears are on, the filter is gone!
2) How did you become involved in the wonderful world of romance books?
I’ve always loved reading. I always participated in the summer book clubs at my library growing up and dominated them for that matter. But after I finished the Harry Potter books there wasn’t anything that captured my interest. Now this may come as a surprise but I had never even read a romance novel before. The DVD of Twilight was about to come out and I thought it looked interesting. I was discussing it with a coworker and she suggested I read the books. She let me borrow all four of them. 4 days later I was begging for more to read.
(Jess says: And there it is! Twilight.)
So she gave me Christine Feehan’s Carpathian series. The Carpathians get a little dirty but nothing too much. I started looking online for more books and came across the wonderful world of Amazon and the Kindle. It took a while for me to actually get a kindle but thanks to the app on my phone I was able to get my first freebie-Regina in the Sun by R.G. Alexander. I was amazed. Authors write dirty books? And I can read them? I was hooked ever since. I started joining Yahoo author groups and found out about RT and I’ve never looked back. I love this world. The readers are awesome. The authors are so wonderful and generous. I’ve made so many new friends that I would have never met had it not been for these books. I’ve even become friends with so many of the authors I love (I certainly view all of the International Heat girls as my friends). I wouldn’t trade anything in the world for this wonderful world of romance enthusiasts. Well damn I got a little misty eyed there. Lol
(Jess again: Kitty we all love you too. Just like we love this whole world of romance enthusiasts.)
3) Tell us all about your blog.
It’s called The Smutty Kitty, and as the name implies I like my books on the smutty side. I review, pimp, and host guests within all genres and heat levels. I think reviewing is fun. I like to talk about my books with friends so I thought why not type what I’m thinking for the whole world to see? I have one rule and that’s that I do not post negative reviews. There is so much negativity in the world I like to keep my blog a happy place where people can come read about a new book or author and win some awesome shit. Heh, I made it all the way to question 3 before I cussed! That might be a new record! 😉
4) Do you work alone or are others blogging/reviewing with/for you?
It used to just be me, but my EDJ and life was becoming a bit much for my growing blog so I put out a call a few weeks ago for some help. I have such a wonderful following that I got quite the response. I now have seven wonderful ladies (my Pride) helping me dig through my ever growing review pile. I’ll be introducing them on my site over the next several weeks.
5) Do you have preferred genres – you know books you gravitate to?
I really don’t. Well other than I like my sex. Lol I love it all: paranormal, contemporary, sci-fi, BDSM, and just about anything else you throw at me. I will give anything a try. I think that is what helps keep me wanting more. If I get tired of contemporary I just read a paranormal and flip flop back and forth. With the changes in the romance market being flexible means I always have a steady flow of amazing books to read.
Okay, now let’s have some fun…
1. Name your celebrity free pass
Alexander Skarsgård AKA Eric Northman-back the F off he is MINE!!!!
(Jess says: Kitty, you know I love you. But don’t even try lay a finger on that man. Just…don’t.)
2. Tell us about the worst day job you ever had
My time spent in retail was not exactly awesome. Lol But honestly I’ve been pretty lucky to never really hate any job I’ve had. Did I enjoy it all the time? Hell no! But hate? Ehh not really.
3. Describe your blog in 3 words
Amazeballs, Smutalicious, Meow
4. If you won the lottery, what would be the first thing you’d buy for yourself?
A shit ton of corsets and tutus!!!!
(Jess intervenes: So, it seems Kitty’s given up altogether on the not cussing thing…)
5. What food will you absolutely not eat?
There are so many things I won’t eat. It would probably be easier to say what I will eat. Lol
6. Describe your favorite outfit
I kinda already did. Lol Here I’ll show you instead.
7. What is your worst vice or habit?
OMG I have so many. Lol I don’t think it’s a bad thing but I sing all the time. Like seriously all the time. I don’t even realize I’m doing it most of the time. I only notice when other people point it out to me. I also have a tendency to sing what I’m doing. Like singing about getting dressed or cooking. I’m just kidding about the cooking…I don’t do that. Lol
8. As you’re typing the answers to these questions, what are you wearing? (That’s not a naughty question unless you have a dirty mind)
I should lie and say a corset and a tutu, but sadly I am in my paw print Jamie shorts and a sleeveless t-shirt. It’s hot as hell here right now.
9. Do you prefer a hairy or smooth chest?
Smooth…I am not a fan of a hairy man. He can have some but I’m gonna need him to trim it up if it’s more than a little.
Tattoos—love or hate?
LOVE Give me a man with tats and I am a happy girl. I have three myself and I want more! Stupid EDJ gets in the way of me having too many more though.
