Please welcome the beautiful Jessica Samuels to the blog this week!
What are your ambitions for your writing career?
I want to publish enough books to write full time, have a strong fanbase, and publish and write more stories readers love to read and ones I love to write.
Give us an insight into your main character. What does he/she do that is so special?
I’ll give you a little insight on Angeline from AngelWitch. She is a retail worker at Kyle’s General Store and she finds out she is more then just a special human. She is part angel and part witch, and it leads her to discovering her angel mate Felix who is her protector and she even gets to meet her real parents since they kept her a secret to prevent the bad angels from getting her till it’s time to come into her power.
What are you working on at the minute?
A New Adult book called AngelWitch.
What’s it about?
Angeline hates her miserable job working at Kyle’s General Store where the customers are horrible and the boss is an asshole. When she goes to her friend Ginger’s shop to rid herself of all the negative crap the customers throw at her she ends up almost taken by Zack who is a dark angel, and winds up meeting Felix who is her Protector and learning that she has a guardian angel named Kalisa who also works with her in Kyle’s store. She is an AngelWitch who is half angel and half witch her mom is a high witch and dad is an arch angel. She can only come into her power with the help of an angel soulmate and then she can stop Zack from being free of Blood Fall Hills which is the realm he is trapped in.
What genre are your books?
Young Adult/ New Adult paranormal romance/fantasy
What draws you to this genre?
I love vampires, werewolves, and fantasy is a subject I love to experiment with. I love supernatural creatures, and I’ve been fascinated with it since I was little.
How much research do you do?
It depends on the book since I could be doing hours worth of research to weeks or month. I’ll use past experiences, movies, books, and television shows. I’ll even use video games too.
Why do you write?
I love to tell stories, and I want to show people my fantastical world. I want my characters to be happy, and I also write for my sanity. I love it and I have to write or I’ll get sick.
Do you write full-time or part-time?
I currently write part time since I work retail part time and go to school full-time. I want to just write full time.
Do you write on a typewriter, computer, dictate or longhand?
I write long hand first then I type it on the computer. I wish I could use a type writer and I have dictated notes at times.
What is the hardest thing about writing?
The hardest thing about writing is finding the time and the drive to finish a story. Spending long hours alone does not help, and sometimes the words don’t come as easily.
What was the hardest thing about writing your latest book?
The hardest thing about this book is finding the time to write it. I also have to take breaks since it can rile me up, but it helps me get it all out there. I love it though, and I think creating an angel witch magical system is also going to be hard. It will be worth it when it is done though.
