The James Gang


March James Gang

Each month, I interview authors or publishing insiders who have some form of "James" in their names or in their books. My March James Gang interviewee is paranormal and contemporary romance author, Jinni James!

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

I chose James because I wanted to keep part of my name with me through everything. James is my maiden name, so I decided to keep it. Jinni just happened to sound great with it when I was going through my options.

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

I write both Paranormal Romance as well as Contemporary Romance. I love both!

3. Tell us about your latest release.

Business and Pleasure by Jinni James

Business and Pleasure is my latest release. It is a contemporary romance.

Business and Pleasure book blurb:

Elizabeth Hamilton is a smart and successful business woman. After her parents died, Elizabeth moved her college student sister in with her, took over her family's business, and even started one of her own. She has no time in her life for a relationship. Her company is her passion, it is what gets her up in the morning, what drives her, it's what she lives for. So when Alexander Preston comes in and decides he wants to buy it from her, it is no surprise that Elizabeth fights for what is hers.

Quickly Elizabeth realizes there is a spark between the two of them, a spark that she decides to ignore until Alexander presses her for more. Elizabeth feels the internal struggle between her desire for this man and her passion for her company.

Elizabeth soon discovers that there is something going on in her company behind closed doors that she is unaware of. Fighting for what she believes in, as well as her company, may just unearth some secrets she didn't know were buried.

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

Love is main core of pretty much any of my stories. I didn't anticipate the suspense and/or action that ended up in my books, but my brain took over. The general theme is love, conquering it and keeping it.

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

So far my favorite heroine has been Elizabeth in Business and Pleasure. I had so much fun writing about an independent, successful, and sexy woman. She is who I aspire to be, well mostly. LOL.

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

I enjoy everything, but I must say actually seeing my finished projects out and in my hands gives me such a feeling of accomplishment that I can't explain. I've dreamed of being an author for years, to finally see it happening makes my heart feel like it's a million times bigger. The friends I've met along the way is another wonderful plus to my life as an author.

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

I've had a few reviews on The Wolfs Maine on Amazon. I'm pretty new at this so there isn't much yet.

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

My website:, and I have a blog called "Author Jinni James ~ Where love has no boundaries."

I am also on Facebook:, Fan page:, and Twitter: JinniJames

9. What is your next project?

I've got three projects in the making right now. I've got the third book in my Immortal/Shifter series, the second book in my Manhattan series, and I am also working on my first YA [Young Adult] novel.

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

Mr. Benjamin Franklin said it best, "Either write something worth reading, or do something worth writing." In my opinion, DO BOTH! Don't settle for anything less.

Thank you, Jinni! My April James Gang interviewee will be Liquid Silver author, Becca Jameson!
