The James Gang


THE JAMES GANG

May 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 May James Gang interviewee is author, Victoria Adams, who has a character just right for the James Gang!

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

I like the way the name sounds. It's strong and Robert is a strong character. He has to fight for everything he wants and that includes the woman he loves. I used James as a middle name because it adds to the power of the name. Robert has never known his father and his mother ran out when he was very young, so he has no idea why he got the names he did.

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

I write NA [New Adult] contemporary and contemporary romance.

3. Tell us about the book Robert James is in.

RJ—which is actually the nickname one of the characters uses—is in all three books of the series: the Circles Trilogy. But I am going to start with Book 1:

Dancing in Circles—One born into privilege and a charmed life surrounded by love and family. The other born to a life of violence on the streets as the solemn gang leader of the notorious Shoresmen. A young, idealistic co-ed, Julie, meets a jaded, cold gang member, Robert, and cracks his icy shell, allowing the warmth of her love to awaken his soul.

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

Social prejudice is the core story. As the heroine, Julie, points out—no one in her upper-class world will give Robert a chance to prove himself just because of his street address.

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

Robert. Robert is my first hero and he has a super special place in my heart.

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

Conversing with readers and fans. Some get very emotional about my books. I received an email the other day from a reader and she "complained" about the emotional roller coaster I put her through and then finished the email saying she was going to buy the next book. That makes me smile.

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

No awards. I don't enter contests. No reason, I just don't. This is one of my favourite 5-star reviews:

"Julie I liked, but Robert, loved that guy. He's thrown some insurmountable circumstances to overcome, but he manages a way around it all quite nicely. While he may be the 'bad boy,' he still has a heart of gold. The author did a nice job expressing that while we may not all travel the same paths in life, we still are essentially the same people and deserve happiness alike."

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

Yikes—uh—interviews like this, so I guess that's visiting blogs, FB [Facebook] events, posting on my own blogs, Twitter. Whatever I can think of that gets my name out there.

9. What is your next project?

I have two author names and at the moment, Victoria Adams is taking a small break, because the other author is on a hot streak with three books written so far this year. When this run slows, Victoria is going to work on a two-book series. It is roughed out and just needs to be written. (And no, I won't tell what my other author name is—I like to keep the two separate.)

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

My personal motto: Save the planet. It's the only one with chocolate.

Thank you so much for letting me visit. It was a great interview.
