Keeping King, Book 4: http://bit.ly/KeepingKing
What do you write?
What genre do you favor?
When did you realize you wanted to be a writer?
I’ve always enjoyed writing but I’d never considered the possibility of being an author until July of 2014. I wrote a review for a romance novel I’d just finished and the author, who is now a dear friend of mine, suggested I try writing. I am so very grateful that I listened to her.
Are you published?
Where can you be found on social media?
Just about everywhere, although I typically tend to favor Instagram or Facebook.
Website or blog: www.annejolin.com
What do you think is the best way to publish these days?
I’m not sure there is a ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ way to publish a book, I would think it’s more of a personal preference and what helps you to achieve your creative goals. That being said, I am only self-published and have not yet pursued traditional publishing.
What are your favorite genres to read? Why?
I read mostly contemporary or Erotic Romance, but I do occasionally enjoy reading some Paranormal Romance as well. I usually tend to pick novels that I can escape into while still relating to them, and contemporary does that for me with every read.
Do your characters talk to you?
Oh, heck yes! Sometimes they won’t shut up, even, but on the flip side, they can sometimes be shy and that can be a pain in the butt.
How do you approach starting a new book? What is your writing process?
Is flying by the seat of your pants a process? Kidding! Well, maybe not completely kidding. I don’t plot my books, but I usually do start with an idea of where they will go. After that, I’m just along for the ride as the characters take over.
What are the best writing books or blogs you’ve ever read?
To be honest, I’m not sure I’ve really read any books or blogs on the process of writing. If y’all know any, hit me up!
What are your non-writing hobbies, or what do you do to relax?
I spend a lot of time with my pitbull puppy, Ghost and I absolutely am completely and utterly obsessed with movies, I can usually be found watching one!
What was your best date ever?
Hmm. Tough call. Can I pick one that I created? Branson takes London in Change Rein to the edge of a lake and they dance in the bed of his pick-up truck, swoon city. I’d be puddy for something like that.
Navy SEAL or cowboy?
Oh, lord. I am a sucker for a cowboy.
Chocolate or chips?
Chips! I could put away a bag of salt and vinegar chips like nobody’s business!
If you could have a superpower what would it be? Why?
FLYING. Traffic is the devil.
Fancy restaurant or picnic?
Picnic, they’re just so dang cute!
Beer or wine?
Aurora Rose Reynolds
Smooth or hairy?
