BLOG TOUR: Girl in Love by Caisey Quinn #KylieRyansSeries

You guys!!! I am giddy beyond belief! Why, you may ask? OMFG! I can't even believe it myself. Y'all know what a big fan I am of Caisey Quinn, right?! I adore her Kylie Ryans series. I fell head over heels for both Kylie and Trace. And now, the third and final installment has been released. Of course I devoured it. For a few short hours, I was consumed. Needless to say, I LOVED every single moment. It was bittersweet as I didn't want to say goodbye to one of my favorite couples EVER. Still, I seriously cannot wait for you to read it too so you can bite your nails-pull your hair-scream and shout-ooh and awe-and SWOON. GIRL in LOVE is a rollercoaster ride you never want to end. But let me get back on to why you stopped by today...
So- obviously we're here to celebrate GIRL in LOVE's release and all things Kylie and Trace, but just what has me so super excited!?!? I got to interview my favorite cowgirl/superstar author- Caisey Quinn. That's right! *squeeeee!* Caisey was kind enough to indulge my nosiness. Let me tell you, she was such a good sport. Luckily- for her- this was all through email so she didn't really have to endure my random fangirl squeals and moments of awed and stunned silence.'s what I was able to get her to fess up. Enjoy! ~Shell

S: What is the first thing you purchased after becoming a published author?
Caisey: A book cover! ;) My first one was a favor from a sweet friend. (An awesomely talented friend, Emily Tippetts, who still does many of my covers).
S: If you could put a favorite line from GIRL in LOVE on a shirt, what would it read?
C: It’s life. It’s beautiful and messy and, more often than not, kind of scary.
S: How has Kylie's story affected you? Personally and professionally.
C: Oh wow. It would take a long time to answer this fully. But the short answer is personally it’s given me an opportunity to reflect on my own relationships. I’ve learned to chase my dream while following my heart. Professionally it’s shown me that no matter what I believed before, my characters are in charge when it comes to their stories.
S: Can you share with us a gift from a fan that really touched you?
C: Any time a reader shares their love for my books with me or recommends them to a friend, it’s a gift. One I cannot say thank you enough for.
S: Is there a genre you don't want to tackle and why?
C: Historical romance. Some people do it so well, but I don’t think I ever could.
S: Tell us about an embarrassing moment as Caisey Quinn, author...
C: Well, you see, I was discussing Keep Me Still with my precious friend Lauren Blakely. She offered to read and review it for me. Because she’s awesome. And precious as I mentioned. When I was editing KMS, I read a book by Daisy Whitney and there was this quote that I used at the beginning of the book about second chances.
A few weeks after KMS was released I learned that Lauren and Daisy Whitney are in fact one in the very same. I’d quoted her in my book without even realizing it! I felt like a complete idiot. Still do. But Lauren/Daisy was amused.
S: What author(s) inspired you to write?
C: This is a long list. Ridiculously long. But I can say that it was author Emily Tippetts that inspired and encouraged me to self publish my books.
S: Do you have a favorite pair of cowboy boots or hat?
C: I do! I think they’re Lucchese or Lone Wolf maybe? They were one of my first pairs of actual cowboy boots. They’re really broken in and I’ve had them for about fifteen years. I only wear them for yard work and stuff now, but they will always be my favorites.
S: Name three things you can't leave the house without?
C: •Phone
    •Lip balm/chapstick (the tube kind, not the waxy stick kind)
    •My kiddo ;)
S: What can we look forward to next?
C: The Second Chance series is a darker more adult spinoff of the Kylie Ryans series. It’s a bit sexier and features some tortured souls with serious problems. Last Second Chance is the first one and is planned for late Spring/early Summer. Skylar and Corin, Mia, Steven, and Gretchen all have stories that I may or may not self-publish in the near future. I’ll also be continuing to write the YA Broken Heartland series with Elizabeth Lee. I have a few random standalones coming out this year that will likely surprise my readers. (And possibly make them wonder if I have multiple personality disorder).
S: Thank you SO much, Caisey. It's been great getting to know you a bit better. GIRL in LOVE exceeded all my expectations. I'm really going to miss Kylie and Trace. I see several re-reads in my future. (They are that addictive, folks!) And I seriously cannot wait for the spinoffs. Heck, I'm chomping at the bit for anything and everything penned by you.
You are an author rockstar.
C: Aww, thank you so much! And thank you for having me!! It is a scary thing ending a series and wondering if that’s the end! It means a lot when readers say they’re going to stick with me!
Well there ya go, my lovely groupies. Caisey really is a kick. And I had a lot of fun pulling this together. Don't miss the fabulous GIVEAWAY Caisey has set up for y'all. And please- add this to your list, grab it and place it at the top of your TBR pile...


She's living her dream...

Kylie Ryans is the biggest thing to come out of Nashville since, well, since Trace Corbin. With a hit album and a powerful label behind her, she appears to be the girl who has it all.

But appearances can be deceiving.

Fresh out of rehab, Trace Corbin is ready to take on the world. Just not the girl he walked away from. Because if there's one thing he knows for certain, it's that the people you love are the ones who have the power to destroy you.

As their worlds collide, they'll have to make the ultimate choice. Follow their dreams, or give it all up for love.

They say love conquers all, but for Kylie and Trace, it just might wreck everything they've worked for.

Caisey Quinn lives in Birmingham, Alabama with her husband, daughter, and other assorted animals. She is the bestselling author of the Kylie Ryans series as well as several New Adult Romance novels featuring country girls finding love in unexpected places.
