ES Skipper talks Flight of the Kiwi ( Book 1 ) London Calling ~ Blog Tour, Interview, Rafflecopter Giveaway

Prism Book Alliance would like to thank ES Skipper for taking the time to talk with us today.


Title: Flight of the Kiwi ( Book 1 ) London Calling
Author: ES Skipper
Publisher: Self Published
Genre/Sub-Genre: Contemporary, M/M Romance


Tamati Kumeroa is about to embark on his great adventure, his Gap Year, after finishing his arts degree. He’s talked about this with his best friend Steve for so long and now that it’s finally here, he can’t wait to get started. On his last night in New Zealand, the barman he’s lusted after for so long decides to make sure Tamati won’t easily forget him. Talk about bad timing….

His flight to London is certainly memorable, especially when a very rich Arab makes Tamati an offer that he’d be a fool to turn down. And when he accepts it, what he encounters is a very memorable time indeed, spent with a sexy man and a host of new friends.

His trip is off to a very interesting start. One thing Tamati didn’t bargain on was losing his heart…


1. We are here today to talk about Flight of the Kiwi (book 1) London Calling.  What can you tell us about it?

London was really calling when I decided to write a story. Tamati is your typical kiwi guy, doing what a lot of New Zealanders do after finishing their education. Travel is something we seem to like to do. We are a small country, and going away for a while lets us see a different way of life. Nine times out of ten they return to the beautiful country they call home. I want to show that there are so many different cultures out there and beautiful countries, which a lot of us can only dream of seeing in our lifetime. Tamati will grow in his year away from his family and friends, breaking a few hearts along the way.

2. Tell us more about Tamati Kumeroa and his love interest.

With a massive heart, Tamati falls in and out of lust easily. When he falls however, he falls hard. Will he find his one true love? Only time will tell.

3. Why New Zealand?

I’m a kiwi. I write what I know. The language; the culture. Each character has a little bit of me in them. Good or bad, somehow parts of me feature in my stories.

4. This is your first solo novel, how did you get started?

After my first short story’s success in the Bollocks Anthology, I couldn’t stop. I was encouraged by my partner and friends to try go out on my own.

5. Now that there are so many books being released in the genre, what can a new writer do to stand out from the crowd and produce something fresh?

Step outside the box. Give a new voice. Write what you know and be true to the characters.

6. If there world were going to end tomorrow, how would you spend your last night on earth

With my family and partner, wrapped in each other’s arms.

7. What are you reading right now and what is next on your to-be-read list?

About the Author:

Living in a small town in New Zealand E. S. Skipper writes during the quiet of the day, but being the owner of an over excitable puppy, quiet is not always possible. Even though English is the first language of many of his friends, the difference between Kiwi English and American English has produced a lot of laughter among friends and fans alike.

Living in the Land of the Long White Cloud, Kiwi characters feature strongly in most of E.S’s stories. Writing was a hobby but soon became a way of life. E. S. believes that love is love, no matter who it’s with, and everyone deserves to be with the person of their choice. A true romantic at heart, E. S. Skipper believes everyone will have their happily ever after.
