FAQ

Q: I'm doing a school report on you and need some facts! Help!
A: Facts like I hate Brussel sprouts and look horrible in pale pink? No? Okay, some real facts. I was born on October 23rd on an Airforce Base in California because my dad was in the Airforce. This makes me a BRAT (no really, that's what they call children born to a full-time military parent). Most of my childhood, I grew up in a little town called Clovis, which is in central California. I graduated from Fresno State University with a bachelor's degree in elementary education because my plan was to become a teacher. Then I got married to a lovely man and we had four children. My dream was to stay home and raise them, so I did. While in the process of raising these amazing kids, I started writing. I didn't know this was also my dream until I tried it and loved it so much. I've always loved to read. I've been reading books my whole life. Some of my favorite authors are Jane Austen and Charles Dickens. My first book, Pivot Point, was published in 2013.

Q: Does Pivot Point have a sequel?
A: Why, yes. Yes, it does. It's called Split Second and you should read it.

Q: Are you writing a sequel for The Distance Between Us?
A: No, it's just the one, but I promise everything you have questions about works out exactly like you're imagining it.

Q: No, really, will you write a sequel for The Distance Between Us?
A: As of now, my answer is really no. But who knows what the future holds. I've learned to never say never. For now, I'm super excited that I have 4 other contemporaries out--On The Fence, The Fill-In Boyfriend, P.S. I Like You, and By Your Side. And two more coming out in the next year--Lucky in Love and Love, Life, and the List.

Q: Are you writing a sequel for The Fill-In Boyfriend?
A: No, I'm not. Thank you for loving it enough to want a sequel, but I think Gia and her boy's story from here on out would be too sweet to make an interesting sequel. Now, would I love to write a companion novel starring Bec? Yes, I would. But, I have other books I'm working on that are under contract, so we'll see if I can squeeze that in somewhere.

Q: Is Pivot Point a trilogy?
A: No, the series ends with Split Second.

Q: Is there going to be sequel for On The Fence?
A: I love those of you who want one, but there is no sequel planned.

Q: What about that book I see on goodreads called The Sun The Moon and The Truth? Is that a Teen Wolf thing? And when does that book come out?
A: I have never seen Teen Wolf and had no idea it was a Teen Wolf saying until after all of you started telling me. So, no, it's not at all. And that book is waiting in the wings right now. It was bought by Egmont before they closed their doors. So it has no home. But I love it so much so I will figure out a way for you all to read it.

Q: What inspires your stories?
A: I am inspired by many different things. Sometimes it's a place I visit or a book I read or a movie I watch or a character I imagine. Each book comes about a little differently than the one before it.

Q: Do you have a P.O. Box so that we can shower you with gifts and praise?
A: (I may have made some assumptions behind the reasoning of the above question) Unfortunately, as much as I love gifts and praise, I do not have a P.O. Box. I had one at one point and found I was entirely too lazy to check it.

Q: Will you do an interview for my blog?
A: I will try my hardest. Life is crazy busy right now. But email me some questions. kasie24(at)gmail(dot)com. Well, don't just email me some questions. First email me and ask me then wait for me to say yes, which will happen only if I have time, then email me some questions.

Q: Will you come hang out with our book club?
A: Yes. If you live close to me I'd love to come to your book club (if it doesn't conflict with previously scheduled events). I do have one rule though: No talking bad about my book until after I leave. When I'm there, a short presentation by me and then you will proceed to give a glowing review and/or ask questions. You will also share whatever goodies you are eating that night because let's face it, that's half (if not three-fourths) of the reason we're at book club anyway.

Q: Can I purchase a signed copy of your book?
A: Yes! And this makes me love you. I actually have an arrangement with a local Indie bookstore here in my hometown called Petunia's Place. Call them to request a signed/personalized copy. Please allow a little extra time due to the fact that....you know....I have to drive over there and personalize it and stuff.

Q: How do you pronounce your name?
A: I answer to 'Kasie' 'Cassie' and 'Hey you' but the right pronunciation is K-C. As in KC and the Sunshine Band or Casey at the bat or any other really old references that nobody knows anymore.

Q: Is your husband really 6'8"?
A: Yes, but when we met he told me he was 6'9" and I'm still angry that he lured me in under false pretenses.

Q: You have four kids? Are you crazy?
A: Yes. I am. Thanks for noticing.

    2. Kasie West, You are FUNNY! I guessed that you had to be, as Caymen had me laughing out loud a lot and Addie was subtly funny too. Now I want to know what this change is...But I guess that's between your agent and yourself. Boo.

  17. I really wish you were making a sequel for The Distance Between Us, it's litteraly my favorite book ever and I was so upset when I got done reading it I kind of wished it was a book that went on for infinity because of how amazing it was, but then again I wouldn't want to make you stress. I really wish you could make a sequel for the amazing book to explain what happened after Xander entered the room in the hospital with caymens mom inside, and what happened after they did those testings to Caymens mother? I really wish you would make a sequel.

  18. Are you going to write like a pre-sequel just for us to know what happen to Claire and Gia relationship after everything that happen between them.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Kasie, please, please, please, please make a sequel for On the Fence and The Distance Between Us. I loved these books so much and the endings basically left us to finish them with our own imaginations. I have made so many different scenes that I wish would happen after the the story ended. In The Distance Between Us when Caymen's mom is in the hospital, what happens after that? Does her mom get better? Do Caymen and Xander ever watch the Shinning? What happens when they go to college? Can they overcome that distance?(Assuming they go to different colleges). These are the things most of your fans want to know. They want to hear it from the person who creates the whole plot and story with these characters. Please, just think about writing a sequel to these stories.

  22. Hi Kasie West!! I absolutely love your books, especially your contemporary romance novels (with Hayden being my absolute favorite!!)

    Anyway, I wanted to ask you a question about "On The Fence." I started reading it, and I couldn't help but notice that, while Charlie is job hunting, she comes across a doll shop. I didn't think anything of it, but when the girl mentions a boy named Xander, I immediately thought it was Caymen from "The Distance Between Us" (also an amazing book, with amazing characters!). So, I wanted to ask you if all of your characters live close to one another, but they just don't know each other. (If it is, that's awesome!! I love Easter eggs!!)

And what about the time stop ability? Is that a symptom or just a part of her Divergence? What happens to Duke? Where does he go to college? What happens with her Dad living with the Norms? Why did he want to leave in the first place? You have to answer all of these questions! Please!!!!

I would like to know what happens next but I like having different posibilities of what could happen, but if there is a choice I would rather have every little detail of knowing what happens with charlie and braden. It is also really cool to know that charlie can be herself and know that she can have a relationship with the one she likes all in the same world.

  39. Hi! I picked up your book "On the Fence" on a whim at a scholastic book fair when I was meant to be getting classroom supplies lol. I usually don't read romance type novels but I was very impressed with your book and how much I related to it (being the youngest with two older brothers and quite sporty myself except for a recent injury that's got me on hold). I really enjoyed your story telling and the fact that the characters were yours but also the readers as you didn't try to describe them to death. It allows for everyone to picture them in your guidelines but to their imagination, for me that works great!

    So naturally, after finding out that there's no sequel... please consider writing one :) I searched other books of yours and read the "Fill-in Boyfriend". Another fantastic and pleasant read. Great work! I just wanted to let you know your writing style is very easy to read and picture and just overall very well done. I do wish the two books got more into the relationship between the main characters at the end. That's where sequels could come in... hint hint. Lol sorry. Just like others have said I would love sequels for more of your easy going and relatable characters from these books.
    Now that you've read my comment/short story, I'll leave you be. Keep up the great work! :)

  43. I've now read two of your books; P.S. I like you and The Fill-In Boyfriend and I just wanted to say you inspire me so much I literally want to be you when I grow up. I can't even explain the way I get when I read those books. I actually just finished P.S. I like you today and I ready the whole thing in 5 hours and I got so mad when someone interrupted me lol. But I love your stuff when I first read the Fill-In Boyfriend I was drawn to it my 8th grade teacher had to rip the book out of my hands some time and tell me to stop reading. Which usually doesn't happen because she use to force me to read and when I'm forced to read I don't like it but I picked the book out and wanted to read it and I read it even when we didn't have to read. Sometimes when I was reading your books just to see what happened on the next page and I would have to tell myself to stop lol. I know you might not care that I'm just a fourteen year old girl who loves and is addicted to your books but you inspire me so much and thank you for that. I just end finished talking my mom into buying the rest of your books so I can read them all. It may sound weird but your books are my addition it's like I can't but it down I'm drawn to it and I can't wait until they come in, those other books thank you so much you mean the world to me because you finally got me back interested into books again and I'm in love with it. I can't wait till my birthday which is in a month I hope my mom gets me some more books. Thank you so much and I know how much my mom loves that I'm reading again so I know she really appreciates you too! Thank you so much again!!


    Ps. I kinda want to fly down to California just to meet you in person!

  46. I've already commented about this on another page, but I am motivated and persistent. I frankly am jealous that pivot point got a sequel and none of your other books did. I've loved every book of yours that I read. But it hurts me so bad that there are no sequels, my favorite being (still) By Your Side. I know its pretty much new so I hope that there will be more buzz. You are my favorite author. I apologize in advanced about bugging you about this. I've read through many of your comments and I know a lot of people beg for sequels, sorry I'm gonna add on to that. But I reread that book twice and I never reread books. I know its not easy but please make a sequel to By Your Side or at least please respond. Big fan, thank you for wasting your time on a middle schooler begging for a sequel. ;)

  48. Hi, I've read all of your books that are in stores. You are my absolute favorite author, people ask me what my favorite books is and I stand there for 5 minutes thinking about which of your books I like best. I have two questions. One how do I read The Sun, The Moon, and The Truth? And two what is it about? Also I can't wait for lucky in love to come out, I can only reread your books and its probably going to kill me until june. I'm not going to keep asking for a sequel because I know I'm not going to get one. I also have an idea if you are willing to take it, you should write some of your stories from the guy's perspective just like in the Extras in Split Second. Thank you for entertaining me, Jordan.

    1. Your comments are making me smile. Thank you for taking the time to leave them and for loving my books. :) THE SUN, THE MOON, and THE TRUTH is a book that can't be read yet. I'm hoping to change that in the future. It was bought several years ago by a publishing house that ended up closing. I love the book so much though so I hope to get it into readers' hands soon. :)

  49. It seems you are the kind of author who leaves it to you audience to decide what happens next. That's why only one of your books has a sequel. I am a person who wants to feel satisfied about a book, while that is a great way to do things, it stresses me out. I'm not going to ask for a sequel because the writing process is not easy. But I get really (really) attached to your characters and then I don't know what I want to do after i finish your books. This is a random thought but there are pros and cons to having a still working favorite author because than you can expect a new book to come out or in your case they don't have as many books as you wish they'd have. Sorry about the really random thoughts.

  54. So I know you get asked this a lot and all. I know you wrote the book in 2013 but i love the distance between us. I read it in one day and they I read it again the next to make sure I got every piece of it in my brain. I love on the fence as well but my favorite is the distance between us. Goodness that makes me sound crazy oh well I loving reading and I can't put your books down. I know you said that there is no sequel and maybe in the future but being honest all I want is to see how it all ends because I feel like I didn't get enough Xander and Cayman. Or how Caymen made light of a bad scenario. So will you ever make a sequel or do you think about ever making one. I am rambling sorry. Your fan Leah

  59. Dear Kasie,
    I have always had a love for reading and writing, but never really thought of it as something I could do when I'm older. Last year, I discovered you and instantly became obsessed. Literally. I mark on my calendar whenever your books come out and count down the days. Anyways, after reading so many of your amazing books, my inner writer exploded and I've been writing stories at home ever since. Recently, we had to write a realistic fiction story for class. When my teacher read, she kept telling me how amazing it was and how I was able to do stuff even she would have struggled doing. I immediately thought of you. I hope you know how much of an impact your books have on your readers. Because of you, my dream is to be an author. I'm just a girl with a lot of time ahead of her before she can achieve her dreams, but I will keep trying as long as it takes and you will be in my mind the whole way. Thank you so much!

    Lots of love!

My friends and I read On The Fence for a book club and in the end it says that “her eyes fluttered opened” my friends think this means that the whole book was just a dream, but I think it just means that she woke up and is heading out to see Braden because the last sentence says that it was a perfect time for a fence chat. Please shed some light on this! Thanks you!!!

  62. Kasie West,

    I just want to let you know what an inspiration you are to me and how absolutely amazing every single one of your books are! I really enjoy writing and your books make me want to be better! You are truly such an amazing writer and I hope that one day one of my novels can make the readers feel close to the emotions that you make me feel.

    You’re books are actual perfection! I don’t even know which one is my favorite, but all of your books are on my list of favorite books. You're books are absolutely amazing with the plots and character development and WOW!!!! I just can't even express how amazing they are!! It's really great to be able to read a great book with the surety that there will be no bad words or anything bad. I really think you are the best author in the history of the universe! Your books are such feel good books with amazing plot twists that make me scream and giggle. I can’t stop reading once I start; your books seem to turn the pages themselves!

    Thank you so much for sharing your amazing talents with the world and being my favorite author ever! I was wondering a few things though; How do you think of your characters names? When did you start to write? Do you write anything besides novels (poems, short stories, songs)? How long does it take you to write one book?

    Thanks for your time and for your amazing talents,

    Sarah (a High School Sophmore in awe of your talents :)

    1. Hi Sarah!! thank you for all your kind words. It makes me happy to read them. And thinking about how much people like you enjoy my books helps me to keep writing. Let's see, you asked me a few questions. My character names? I have such a hard time naming characters. Sometimes I look in baby name books (or online baby name sites), sometimes I ask my kids for some interesting first names they've heard at school, sometimes it's just a name I like. I didn't start writing until I was older (around 30years old). I didn't know I wanted to be a writer when I was younger, but I've always loved to read. I write a poem here and there and for PS I LIKE YOU I had to write some song lyrics but that's the only time I've done that. Each book I write takes me a different amount of time. I usually write the first draft anywhere between 6 weeks and 3 months and then I spend several months editing. Thanks for the questions and for reading my books

  64. Hey Awesome Author (yes. I capitalised it),
    I really want to fangirl right now, which involves at least half a minute of pterodactyl screeches and flapping like a sparrow looking at itself in the mirror (not a pretty sight, I warn you). But, I know that it might scare you and put in a bad impression, if I hadn't made one already...
    Okay. The main reason I am commenting is actually because I LOVE HOW YOU MADE A REFERENCE TO THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US IN ON THE FENCE!!! I JUST LOVE IT!!! GAGE CALLING CAYMEN BEAUTIFUL!! HER EYES! CAYMEN TALKING ABOUT XANDER!
    iT MAKES ME WANT TO GO afgaj uigiqg.
    But, since I want to preserve whatever dignity I have left, I am going to sign off with a
    I love that you did that.
    Peace out :)

  66. I honestly love your books!!! You have inspired me so much i have always wanted to be an author and I have wrote books but have never shown anyone except my dog if that counts. Reading your books make me want to fall in love with the boy next door, or the mystery guy, or even the boy I have despised my whole life lol. I want to fall in love but I’m still young and I want to fall in love in so many ways so I write them. Love all your books I want to get a hard copy for little library I live the fact of reading books in form because I think it make the experience so much better. I love you so much Kasie West and thank you for being one of my inspirations and providing me with my passion books!!! -Bryton Clark

  67. My site is being weird, sometimes it let's me reply to people, sometimes it doesn't, which is super frustrating. But I am seeing all your comments. Thank you Butterscotch and Bryton for your kind words. It really helps me when I read things like this. I appreciate you reading my books and reaching out!

  68. Reader4Life, thanks for reading ON THE FENCE! You are right, the whole book was not a dream. At the end, she is just waking up and heading out to the fence. It's showing that they continue their fence chats even after they get together. :)

  71. Hey! Love your books. Its so nice to be able to read funny, clever, and adorable romance stories without having to put up with bad language and sex scenes. So thank you! Also, I was wondering if any of your books are connected at all? For example, is the Xander in The Distance Between Us the same as the one briefly mentioned in On the Fence? Just a curious question!

    Sincerely,
    A fan slightly obsessed with the swoon worthy universe you've created
