Okay, so I’m kind of freaking out here.
Remember this question from one of the Book Tags I was tagged in?
Well.. it’s freaking happening!
I emailed Jennifer a while back and she was kind enough to agree to do an interview on the blog. I may have cried a little.
It’s no secret that I am a huge JLA fan and this blog is barely a post away from just being a fan site. So I am so grateful that she agreed to do this. So before I babble on anymore, here’s the Questions and Answers:
1. You have released over 50 novels/novellas in the last 7 years, how do you keep yourself so motivated and how do you celebrate your releases and accomplishments? On the opposite side, what do you do to relax and unwind?
It doesn’t feel like it’s been that long! I bore very easily, so not being bored motivates me to write. Not very motivational, right? LOL. I don’t really celebrate the releases. Release day is an anxious day, and I’m usually working on a book when another releases. I like to garden to relax.
2. Your books tend to jump genres and age groups, how do you refresh your mind set when going from writing a YA Paranormal to an Adult Contemporary? Or New Adult contemporary to a New Adult Paranormal?
Jumping genres is what keeps writing fresh for me, so that I don’t get burned out on paranormal or contemporary.
3. I’ve always been completely enamored with reading books from the love interests perspective, like Trust In Me and Oblivion. What was it like writing the book from the other characters point of view? Did you find it difficult to write from a male’s perspective since most of your novels are written from a female’s perspective?
I fine it easier to write from the male POV, to be honest, and it’s always exciting to show the other characters thoughts and motivations.
4. In the Lux series, you refer to Obsidian as being the Arum’s Kryptonite. What’s your writing Kryptonite?
5. If you had to choose any of your books to be released as a TV Show or Movie, which one would you choose? And who would be your dream cast?
I think I would say Obsidian and I would love to see Noah Centineo cast in it.
6. Since October is release month for The Darkest Star, can you tell me what it was like returning to the Lux world? Was it like coming home, or did you run into any challenges?
It’s been a lot of fun getting back into that world. The biggest challenge is writing a book both new readers and old ones can follow along with being overwhelmed or bored.
7. Anything you can tell us about the The Darkest Star or the next book in the Origin series?
There’s a huge twist in The Darkest Star, and a series of even bigger twists in the sequel. Believe nothing. Expect anything.
8. What are you working on now?
I just finished the sequel and I’m about to do edits on Storm and Fury, Zayne’s story from The Dark Elements.
9. For funsies and in the spirit of Halloween, if you had to choose any character(s) from your novels to spend the night in a haunted house with, who would you choose and why? How do you think they would react when spooky things started happening?
I would pick Trinity from Storm and Fury. She can see ghosts, so she’d chat with them. I think it would be fun.
10. You have a lot of book recommendations on your website. What recent releases or series are you absolutely loving right now?
I’m absolutely obsessed with Kerrigan Byrne historical series, starting with The Highwayman
There you have it! Thank you so much to Jennifer for agreeing to do this Q&A ❤
Until next time,
