The James Gang


THE JAMES GANG

June James Gang

Each month, I interview authors or publishing insiders who have some form of "James" in their names or in their books. My June James Gang interviewee is author Anne James!

1. Let’s get the most important question asked first: Why James?

First of all - thank you very much for interviewing me, I really appreciate it! Now, about my pen name. I actually chose the name based on a few friends recommendations. Years ago, a really close friend nicknamed me James (which is not my name), and I thought using it would in some way pay tribute to that amazing friendship.

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

I have 2 stories finished with continuations started for both. The first is vampire erotica (with a strong dose of romance and horror). The second is erotica romance.

3. Tell us about your latest release.

My latest release is Olivia. It's a sweet story revolving around a young woman who has secluded herself in the country because of a scandal she was involved in years earlier. She has a very sexy admirer from her past that makes a surprising visit and her life changes forever (in a great way).

4. Is there a core story and/or a theme(s) in your books?

I think one of my main themes is strong female characters. They may not seem to be at first, but they develop into one before it's over. I'm also very adamant that my "bad guys" or "bad girls" are truly bad. I want the reader to feel satisfied when the evil characters get what they deserve.

5. Do you have a favorite hero and/or heroine in your books and why?

Lucas Bradshaw (in Mia [The Bradshaw Clan]) is my favorite character so far. He's sexy, immortal, and protective of what's his. When I invented him, it was like he was writing the story, not me. It's hard to explain.


6. What do you enjoy most about being an author?

I enjoy watching the story unfold. I love thinking I have something thought out, then when I start writing it, the characters lead me another way. It's a wonderful feeling.


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

I haven't won any awards, but I have some truly awesome reviews for the stories on Amazon. I think it's really a humbling experience when another author reads one of my stories and posts a glowing review. It makes all the time and effort so worthwhile!


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

I promote through Twitter mainly [https://twitter.com/AnneJames22] and through interviews like this one. I also get help from the large Indie community on Twitter. I think it's so important that Indie authors stick together to try to sell books.

9. What is your next project?

As I mentioned earlier, the continuations for both of my stories are already being worked on. I have a full-time job and a family that keep me very busy, but when I have the chance, I write. I'm hoping to have the sequel to Olivia out by the end of the summer.


10. Do you have a bit of wisdom you’d like to impart or a favorite quote?

The only wisdom I can pass along for other Indie authors is...support! We have to support each other in this!
