Capes are stupid.
Superheroes are just wishful thinking.
True love doesn’t exist.
I’m not a hero.
Well…not yet.
A seventeen-year-old hacker, a group of teenage superheroes and one hell of a family secret come together to form the perfect storm.
Are you ready to get Struck?
“Struck: The Lightning Project Book 1” is the first book in bestselling author Victoria Kinnaird’s brand new LGBTQIA superhero series.

“Struck” Teaser:
 If you think there’s something more embarrassing than your crush walking in on you literally bouncing off your bedroom walls while shrieking your favorite Forever Fading Echoes song into your hairbrush, you’re wrong.
You’re so very wrong.
“Are you ok?” Adam asked me, an amused smile making his gorgeous lips twitch. I could tell he was dying to laugh.
“Uh, yeah,” I mumbled, face burning. “I just uh…I really love this song.”
“Really? Because you’re murdering it,” he replied, evil grin spreading across his stupid, handsome face.
“Is making obvious jokes your super power?” I snapped, crossing my arms and quirking a brow.
He chuckled, that adorable grin going dark as he tugged up the hem of his soft cotton tee shirt to expose his perfectly toned stomach. His abs looked like they were carved from weirdly sexy stone.
“Nope, I think it’s these.”
“I hate you, get out!” I yelled, but I couldn’t help but smile.
Ever since I’d agreed to stay with The Project, we’d been spending more time together. Jones had even agreed to let Adam train me in hand-to-hand combat. So I spent an unfair amount of time on my back, gazing up at him while he towered over me (if they ever make a movie of my life, this is where the training montage should be, FYI). I wasn’t complaining, that’s for damn sure.

 Interview With Victoria Kinnaird:

1.     Can you tell us a little about your books?
Sure! I currently write YA fiction focused around LGBTQIA characters. I like to genre hop a bit within YA though, and have published paranormal romance, contemporary romance and a superhero novel so far. I’d like to think I’ve got a book out for every taste at the moment!

2.     What inspires you to write?
I’m inspired by so many things, from movies and TV to books and my favourite bands. My paranormal romance series was really inspired by my love of Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Anne Rice, whereas my contemporary romance series was inspired by my years as a rock’n’roll loving freelance music journalist. “Struck”, my current novel, was mostly inspired by my love of the Marvel Cinematic Universe!

3.     How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?
I’ve written 3 books in my paranormal romance series, 2 books in my contemporary romance series and “Struck” is the first and so far only book in my superhero series. So I’m at 6 full length novels just now. My favourite book is always the one I’ve most recently finished, so at the moment it’s “Struck” although that’ll change soon enough!

4.     Do you have a special time to write or how is your day structured?
I still have a day job right now so I mostly write in the evenings and at weekends. But when I’m not writing, I’m still “working” on my books – it just so happens to look a lot like daydreaming!

5.     For someone who hasn't read any of you books yet, which one would you suggest they read first?
It would really depend on their tastes but I think “Fake It”, the first book in my contemporary romance series, is probably the best place to start. As a contemporary romance, it’s the most realistic of my books so I think it’s the most relatable. Plus, who doesn’t love a good old fashioned teen romcom?

6.     Do you work with an outline, or just write?
I always work with an outline. All of my novels are part of a series so I need to make sure that what I’m writing not only works as a contained narrative, but also as part of a wider story. I tend to have a page per chapter outline structure, so I don’t plot everything down to the tiniest detail but I always have the bones of a book on a page before I start writing it.

7.     Do you have a favorite spot to write?
I have a massive desk that takes up about half of my bedroom and it’s definitely my favourite spot to write. It’s got shelves that are lined by my geekiest collectables, I have posters, artwork and photos on the magnetic backboards – I think if you ever wanted to know more about me, you’d just need to take a look at my desk!

8.     If you could spend 24 hours as a fictional character, who would you chose?
I’d really like to be one of the background characters on one of my favourite TV shows, like Teen Wolf, Riverdale or Sabrina so I could just hang out with my all my favourite characters!

9.     What writing projects are you currently working on?
Right now I’m working on the fourth book in my paranormal romance series, “The Red Sun Rises: Shadowkiller”. It’s my first book in The Red Sun Rises series since 2015 so it’s been a lot of fun for me to get back to that world!
