Spotlight: JENNIFER ARMENTROUT - Interview & Giveaway


Jennifer Armentrout / J. Lynn
Author of the Wait for You series

It was my second time meeting this talented author. I had a great time asking my questions to Jennifer at the DC Author Event and here's my report:

***
#1 - As readers we get very attached to characters so it’s sad when we finish their stories. Now, I can imagine that for a writer it is even harder to finish writing a story knowing that’s the end for the characters. How do you transition from finishing a novel/series to starting a new one?

Jennifer told me that she has finished three series and she hans't noticed much of a transition. Her experience when she finishes a series has been bittersweet though, she said. She feels a little sad but mostly she feels relieved and accomplished when she's done. It is short after that she starts to feel ready and excited about writing something new.

#2 - One popular component in romance books is sex scenes so I wonder… When writing, how do you decide how much sex to put in your stories? Or do you mostly follow your genre (YA, NA, Erotic Romance, Erotica, etc.)?

 Jennifer tends to follow the genre of her books when it comes to sex scenes. However, sometimes she likes to push the limits a little bit. She said she always writes what feels right to her and usually is the story what will guide her on how descriptive she should be.

#3 - Do you consider yourself a romance genre writer or a writer who uses love stories to explore a wide range of themes? 

This was an interesting answer. Jennifer said that she's both, a romance genre writer and also a writer that uses love stories to explore other themes. She did emphasize that she likes to explore other topics outside the romance in her stories. I think that's a total reflection of her books since Jennifer writes both Young Adult and New Adult novels and each one with its unique twists.

He can protect her from everyone except himself.

Alana Gore is in danger. A take-no-prisoners publicist, her way with people has made her more than a few enemies over the years, but a creepy stalker is an entirely different matter. She needs a bodyguard, and the only man she can ask is not only ridiculously hot, but reputed to have taste for women that goes beyond adventurous.

Chandler Gamble has one rule: don't protect anyone you want to screw. But with Alana, he's caught between his job and his increasingly hard libido. On one hand, Alana needs his help. On the other, Chandler wants nothing more than to take the hot volcano of a woman in hand. To make her writhe in pleasure, until she's at his complete mercy.

She needs protection. He needs satisfaction. And the moment the line is crossed, all hell will break loose...
