KuroKoneko Kamen

Biography

Author KuroKoneko Kamen (Black Kitten Mask) has always had an interest in Japanese culture from folktales about yokai (ancient demons) to anime and manga. As a result of being an otaku a lot of her stories are set in Japan or have a Japanese theme. Even when in the midst of a pirate novel expect a samurai warrior to be thrown into the mix. Her latest passion is paranormal romance and she’s written stories where ghosts, demons, and angels find love. Keeping her company as she writes are her several dogs and cats, some of which are rescues (now including a pet turtle someone wanted to make a soup out of).

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
One of the children's books I remember reading is "Where the Wild Things Are". Books have always been a fun escape from reality for me. And even as a child when my Mother exposed me to picture books...I started to doodle my own little picture books. My very first book was about a small green turtle and its adventures. After that I wrote a few fantasy stories and in high school I wrote a lot of fanfiction. Then, came my obsession with anime and I wrote several novels that have an "anime" feel. Recently, I've gotten into reading paranormal romance and have started writing books in this genre as well.
How do you approach cover design?
I enjoy drawing...but my skills just aren't where I want them to be to do my own cover arts. I usually have this "vision" in my head for the cover, sketch it out and then search deviantart for the artist that I think will be able to bring my vision to life. I have used several different artists from deviantart and have been very pleased with the results. It's always fun to see your original characters brought to life.

Sanky Panky Pirate Rap
Hello this is author KuroKoneko Kamen, as promised I have made a music video featuring the rap song that is at the end of my pirate-themed novel Sanky Panky Pirate. I'm not a very good singer/rapper but I just wanted to let you all know how I envisioned the song being sung. I changed the lyrics of the song around a bit since it's supposed to be Sanky Panky Pirate Machete singing the song and not a pirate cat-girl lol!
