The James Gang


September James Gang Interview

Each month, I interview authors or publishing insiders who have some form of “James” in their names or in their books. My September interviewee is author Adam Mann (who also writes under the pen name Mike Lord) and has a character named “James” in his latest book!

1. Let’s get the most important question asked first: Why James? That is, why did you pick that name for the character in your book?

I have two or three friends called James, and they all refuse to read “dirty” books, so I put one of them in one of my books: Dreaming.

2. What fiction genre(s) and/or sub-genre(s) do you write?

Mainly romance novellas with explicit sex, but not pornography or swear words.

3. Tell us about your latest release.

Don’t Take Your Shoes Off

There is no doubt about it; ladies who wear high heels look great. I don’t know the sales figures, but I’m sure that high-heeled shoes must be one of the market leaders. But that’s not my point–my impression here is to try to offer three stories about ladies who have worn high heels with spectacular results!

Don’t Take Your Shoes Off is a full length novel from Global Publishing Group LLC:

4. Are you a plot-driven or character-driven author--or a hybrid?

I tend to think of the plot and let the characters do the writing for me.

5. What is your writing process?

I use an Excel file to set out my characters, basic plot, and word count by chapter, but as I say the characters often change the plot midstream.

6. What is a typical working day in the life of author Adam Mann?

I get up about 6.0 and do my emails, about 100 on average. I then look at any promotion plans I have running and make adjustments, which probably takes me up to brunch (breakfast/lunch combined).

7. Do you have any awards, reviews or kudos you’d like to tell us about?

Not really but two of my books have won prizes for first chapters, which I have to enter and pay for.

8. How do you promote your books and your author brand?

I send out about 80/90 tweets every two days. These go to my three Twitter handles, Facebook, and Google+ (non-romance only).

9. What is your next project?

I’ve just joined Mailchimp to try to improve my mailing list.

10. Do you have a story or anecdote you’d like to impart?

I’ve recently had a 5-star review downgraded to 3-star, as I included details of two people naked and alone in the jungle. The reviewed said she’d never heard of that TV program. Maybe it’s me, but there are many such programs--Survival, Naked & Afraid, Kicking & Screaming,...
I feel a bit peeved.
