Kate Hill on Blow by Blow ~ Interview

Prism Book Alliance® would like to thank Kate Hill for stopping by today.


Title: Blow by Blow
Author: Kate Hill
Publisher: Siren
Cover Artist: Harris Channing
Genre: M/M Romance


A hunky former heavyweight champ and an ass-kicking beauty fight for their lives and their love in a futuristic world of MMA.

Theo “Little Raven” Fisker, is a bantamweight with attitude who plans to make a name for himself in the Radical Warrior Tournament, a prestigious mixed martial arts event. The problem is no team will sign a male fighter who walks out in silver and pink with nail polish to match, until he meets Master Jesse.

Impressed by Theo’s talent, Jesse welcomes him onto his up and coming team. Fists and sparks fly when Theo meets gorgeous Valentin Merrickson. Theo draws Valentin out of his protective armor and sparks hope for a life the tough heavyweight never imagined possible. Their love grows, but threats from extremists and an injury that ends Valentin’s career in the cage might tear them apart.

We are here today to talk about Blow by Blow. What can you tell us about it?

Blow by Blow is a M/M erotic romance about a hunky former heavyweight champ and an ass-kicking beauty who fight for their lives and their love in a futuristic world of MMA.

Tell us more about Theo and Valentin?

Theo is a confident, family-oriented person. He has a wild side and he isn’t afraid to be himself. Valentin doesn’t relate to people as easily as Theo. He’s a tough guy, but he has a tender side. He is also more troubled by his past than he realizes.

What about Blow by Blow makes you the proudest?

That the story is romantic but also touches on issues that I believe are important.

This story is set in a fictional MMA world. What can you tell us about it?

Blow by Blow is set on an alternate Earth. It focuses on a fictional MMA event called Radical Warrior in which only a select few martial artists are allowed to compete.

If you could give one piece of advice to aspiring writers, what would it be?

Be open to advice, but if there’s something about your book you don’t want to change, trust yourself as well.

What is the nicest thing a reader has said to you in a review, email, in person, or on social media?

To me, any time a reader emails me or leaves a review, it’s the nicest thing. For someone to take the time to comment and tell me that my work touched them in some way means a lot to me.

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

Right now I’m reading two books. One is The Republic of Thieves by Scott Lynch and the other is the graphic novel Savage Wolverine: Wrath by Philip Jimenez and Richard Isanove. I have a long to-be-read list, so I’m not sure what I’m going to pick next.
