Author Interview & Giveaway w/ Jaime Rush!

30 Lovely Comments!

 

Hey Everyone! I hope you guys have a wonderful week and I am happy present you with a treat today =)

I have Jaime Rush here today, author of The Offspring Series. I love this series and I am really excited I got to interview her, there is also an awesome giveaway courtesy of Avon books, deets at the end of the post =)

Enjoy…

 

jaime rush

- When did you first start writing?

When I was a kid. As far back as I can remember, I was making up stories!

- Have you always been interested in Romance?

My earlier short stories were in every kind of genre, horror and drama included. But the first book-length story was a romance. I love writing about two people who overcome the odds to not only find themselves and their strengths, but love as well. Especially when they're not looking for it.

perfect-darkness-jaime-rush--large-msg-123422901409- What about in the Paranormal?

I've always been interested in things paranormal. I grew up hearing about the haunted house my mom grew up in. There is much more in our world than our senses "see."

- Why writing Paranormal Romance?

It's a natural blend of two elements I love.

- Were there any Books, Movies or Writers that have inspired you?

I read Stephen King as a kid, watched all kinds of horror movies, and loved the V.C. Andrews series (the first two). I also read the short story collections in the Alfred Hitchcock books.

- What is your favorite subject in the Paranormal Romance Realm?

I'm drawn to things that could be real, mostly psychic abilities, dreams, and magic.

- The sex scenes in your books are amazingly hot. Where do you get your inspiration?

Why, thank you (heh heh). When you're really connected to the characters, they create the steam. The right tuneage (music) helps, and a glimpse or two through the Kama Sutra book doesn't hurt!

- Do you find it hard to write them?

It's funny, because, like sex in real life, sometimes you're just not in the mood. Other times they're a lot of fun to write.

Favorites:

- Favorite Paranormal themed Movie?

Sixth Sense

- Favorite Paranormal themed TV Show?

Supernatural

- Favorite Paranormal themed Book? OutOfTheDarkness

Outlander

- Favorite Author?

Janet Evanovich

- Favorite Paranormal Romance Author?

I really like Ilona Andrews

- Favorite one of your Books?

Burning Darkness (book 4 in the series, coming Feb 2011)

- Who is your favorite of your own characters?

It's funny because Eric Aruda, who appears from book 1, was a bonehead. Really. I figured he'd end up torching himself (he's a pyrokinetic) because he's a hothead. Right away readers resonated with him, though, so I knew I couldn't kill him off. And he grew on me, too. By the time I'd written the third book, I knew he had to have the next story, and I really connected with him.

- Which was the hardest to write?

Probably Olivia in Touching Darkness. Characters come to me with their flaws and strengths. I saw her as being submissive to her family but growing throughout the book. But I had trouble connecting to her and realized she needed to be jazzed up. Changing a character once the book is written is tough. But it had to be done, and I like her a lot more now.

- What would you be if not a writer?

I love photography, especially capturing nature and those odd shots (I have some at my Facebook and Myspace pages. For example, my phallic fungus and nipple mushroom pics. Yeah, really!)

Quickies!

- Coffee or Tea? Mostly coffee, with steamed milk, 5 drops of stevia, 5 drops of vanilla.

- Up or Down? Up

- Virtual or Real? Create in virtual, live in real

- Right or Left? Right

- Day or Night? Night 44148643

- Here or There? Always here.

- Sooner or Later? Always now.

- Light or Dark? Dark.

- Fast or Slow?  Right in the middle. 

- Telekinesis or Pyrotechnic? Actually, I'd rather have teleportation skills.

- Angels or Demons? Someone with a little of both.

- Reading or Writing? Writing always takes precedence.

- What is your favorite part of the writing process?

Getting the idea

- What is your least favorite part?

Doing the final round of revisions

- The Offspring series in your own words?

A group of twenty-somethings live ordinary lives but possess extraordinary psychic abilities. They are the Offspring of parents involved in a mysterious experiment gone awry. Sexy…dangerous…outcasts… They are being hunted by the government and others like them. Together they must find the truth and fight an enemy out to destroy them.

- How many books do you have planned for the series?

Six are in the works, but I could easily do two, maybe even more!

Touching Darkness for web - What is coming up next for you?

Plotting book 6, revising book 5

- What are you working on right now?

Reading, taking a break

- Do you have any advice or tip to those like me that want to become a published Author someday?

Join Romance Writers of America, send your work out to contests and critique groups but use your instincts to filter all feedback. When you've sent something out to an editor/agent, start working on something new. Never give up if you feel the drive to write in your heart.

- Anything you would like to say to your fans out there?

Thanks for loving the Offspring almost as much as I do!

- Thanks so much for being here!

Thanks for having me =)

  1. It's awesome when authors really connect with a character, even if they don't like them at first. :)

    Great interview, I love Jamie Rush! Touching Darkness…Jamie emailed me to let me know she was naming a character after me… I think. I'm not really sure (at the time I participated in a contest to be eligible for having a character named after you or you could give book title suggestions and they could be chosen). I wonder which one I won. I hate not remembering.

  11. Hi, everyone! Thanks for all the comments! Hilda, I emailed you about the contest but will also say here that it was a special promo I did where everyone who signed up got their name in Touching Darkness. It was fun and over 300 people got a little famous :)

    Hi, Cathy--Thanks!! I haven't had anything really weird happen to me, but I've had knowings that saved me from getting into car accidents. A couple of times, even though things were bad at the time, I knew it would be okay. I have also felt presences, which is pretty wild. Some good, some not so good.

    Good luck to those who posted!

  12. Oh, and PS, I really liked Larissa's quickies! They were fun and different!

    Sorry if my post before went through twice.

    Cheers,
    Jaime

  25. I find it interesting that there are so many paranormal authors who are interested in the subject and say they were fascinated by it growing up. It's a subject I like also and always have, but I never had any friends that were that interested.
