Book Tour: Learning to Love: Final Exam by K.C. Wells #Gay #BDSM #Giveaway

Book Name: Learning to Love: Final Exam
Author Name: K.C. Wells
An Interview with K.C.

What made you want to write this particular book?
This was always going to be the last book in the series. I knew what it was going to be about back in April 2012, but when Josh & Chris came out, other stories got in the way, and it was sixteen months between finishing that one and starting Final Exam.

How did you come up with the idea for this story?
This book was just the natural continuation of the stories from the previous three books – catching up with the three couples.

How much of your own life and personality do you put in your work?
Oh, there’s a lot of me in there! Love Lessons Learned has a big piece of me, when Jon goes through a hard time in his job as a teacher. Been there, done that, bought the T-shirt…

What is a typical writing day like for you?
I get up at seven-ish and put lunch together for the hubby. The coffee maching goes on, and by the time he’s out of the house between 8.00-8.30, I’m sitting down at the laptop. Of course, I have to talk with some very important people first via Skype, and then I get down to it. If it’s between April and October, chances are I will head down to Steephill Cove on the island where I can write without distractions – no internet, no phone… BLISS

What do you do while writing that others might find unusual?
Absolutely nothing! I’m really boring – I don’t listen to music.

Do you plot and outline or do you write by the seat of your pants?
I tend to plot. I like to know where I’m going. But if a character wants to go off in a different direction, then yeah, I’ll go with the flow.

Do your characters ever take over your writing and make the story go somewhere you didn't originally have in mind? 
HAHAHAHA – I seem to keep doing this, right?

Have you always wanted to be a writer?
When I was younger, yes. I LOVED writing stories and toyed with the idea of writing a book. Except in the real world, there’s that little thing called a JOB – or in my case, a teaching career. So writing got shelved.

What is the least satisfying thing about being a writer?
Not having enough hours in the day. I stop when the hubby gets home because that’s the way it works around here – doesn’t mean I like it!

What is the most satisfying thing about being a writer?
Opening up a book and reading it, and thinking, “Oh wow – I wrote this!”
Getting emails and messages from people who tell me that this or that book really meant something to them.
Messages demanding to know “when is the next one out?”

Do you have advice for other writers or would-be writers?
Write down your ideas and get someone you trust to read your work through when you’ve finished it. And by trust, I mean someone who won’t gush about it, but will tell you what you need to hear.

Where can we find out more about you and your work?
Various places! I’m always posting on Facebook about my WIPs…

I have a blog, but I am REALLY bad at keeping it up-to-date…

There’s a website:

Thanks so much for having me!

Author Bio: 

Born and raised in the north-west of England, K.C.Wells always loved writing. Words were important. Full stop. However, when childhood gave way to adulthood, the writing ceased, as life got in the way.
K.C. discovered erotic fiction in 2009, where the purchase of a m̩nage storyline led to the startling discovery that reading about men in love was damn hot. In 2012, arriving at a really low point in life led to the desperate need to do something creative. An even bigger discovery waited in the wings Рwriting about men in love was even hotter...
K.C. now writes full-time and is loving every minute of her new career.
The laptop still has no idea of what hit it... it only knows that it wants a rest, please. And it now has to get used to the idea that where K.C goes, it goes.

One house, three couples, and one year left until their final exams….

Evan and Daniel want to take their D/s relationship to the next level. When Daniel suggests conducting a little research at a BDSM club, Evan is more than up for it. Trouble is, one of their housemates isn’t happy about this.

Finances tighten for new couple Josh and Chris. Wanting to ease some of the pressure on Chris, Josh starts as an agency nurse. But tackling a heavy workload at medical school and working late-shifts leaves little time for the couple. Something’s gotta give.

In Spain, Sean was diagnosed as suffering from migraines. But after the medications have no effect and he starts suffering from other complaints, he decides to get a second opinion without telling Michael. When Michael finds out, Sean's usually laid-back husband's reaction shocks everyone. But Michael needs to get his head sorted fast, because Sean needs his strength.

As their school career comes to a close and the one person who holds them all together starts to fall apart, the final exam is a true test of friendship.

SEAN WAS getting really fed up with his housemates. 
Ever since he and Michael had got back from Spain, the four men had turned into mother hens. Sean was constantly aware of them watching him. At least, it felt like they were. When he’d brought it up, Michael had said he was imagining things, but then again, Michael was guilty of the same thing in Sean’s book. He knew Michael was keeping a close eye on him. Sean hadn’t said a word. These days, he didn’t trust himself to do so without biting Michael’s head off, and that was the last thing he wanted to do. 
Okay, so I’ve had a few migraines. Why the scrutiny all the time? 
He loved his housemates to bits, but recently he’d found himself snapping at them on occasion, and that just wasn’t like him. He could see the same thought in Michael’s eyes and that hurt. He hated it when Michael worried, especially if he was the cause. 
He wanted to scream at them all. 
Look, I’m fine! It’s just a few fucking HEADACHES, that’s all! 
He wouldn’t, of course, tempting though the idea was. And besides, there was that tiny voice in his head that wouldn’t go away. 
What if it’s more than just headaches? What if there’s something else wrong? 
At first he’d pushed the thought aside. He’d been to the doctors in Spain, hadn’t he? The doc had been perfectly happy with his diagnosis of migraines
Only now the headaches were occurring more regularly, which was worrisome. The fact that his bloody pills were useless wasn’t helping either. 
Then DO something. Get another opinion. 
Now that made sense. 
Sean picked up his phone and scrolled through his contacts to the clinic where he and Michael got tested every few months. 
The sooner he got this sorted, the happier he’d be. And maybe then his housemates would stop mothering him. 
He listened for a moment. Michael was downstairs in the kitchen with Chris, Evan, and Daniel. Josh was at the hospital. If Michael knew he was making an appointment, he’d only worry even more. 
So that meant only one course of action—Sean wasn’t going to tell him. He’d go see another doctor, see if there were any tests they could run, and maybe get some medication that actually worked. He glanced at the notice board where his and Michael’s timetables were pinned. Being on the same course had its drawbacks, especially if he wanted to book an appointment when Michael wouldn’t be around. The only time available was when Michael saw his personal tutor. At least the clinic was on campus, but he might have to book it a week or two in advance to be sure of getting the slot he wanted. 
And if he were completely honest, Sean was starting to get concerned. He rarely got sick, he ate healthily—Michael made sure of that—he didn’t smoke, and his alcohol intake amounted to a couple of glasses of wine per week. So putting up with headaches was pissing him off. 
Make the call, Sean. While Michael’s not in earshot. 

Sighing, he pressed Connect.
