Ask Five with....Jules Bennett!!!
Here is another new author for readers to check out. I’ve sort of known Jules online for the past year or so, and when I saw that she had a book coming out from The Wild Rose Press, I had to ask her for an interview.
Keep an eye on new authors like Jules. They are destined for the bestseller lists! Sit back and meet Jules Bennett:
1. What is the title of your latest release and what’s it about?
Home Again is my latest release. This contemporary romance is a reunion story filled with emotion and passion. My heroine realizes nearly a decade after fleeing from her home, that she must return to face her past and capture the life she lost. Home Again is available now in e-book format and will be in print on June 29th from The Wild Rose Press. You can go to http://www.wildrosepublishing.com/ or http://www.julesbennett.com/index.php to order a copy now. This will also be available at Borders, Barnes & Noble, Waldenbooks, and Amazon. If your store doesn't have Home Again, please ask for it.
2. What is the hardest part of writing?
Finding an equal balance between fiction and reality. I have a family and I run a small business, so I'm usually up all hours of the night working on a story. The actual process of writing has always come easy to me.
3. How do you stay motivated?
When I complete a manuscript, I always set a goal for the next. The goal may be a date to be finished or an editor to query. I always have a short-term goal because those small ones push me toward the long-term goal. Lately what motivates me is seeing the completed product. The second I see a new cover, it motivates me to make my current work in progress the best. The best motivator is seeing finish line.
4. Which authors have influenced you over the years, whether for their writing or for their friendship?
As far as writing, I will read anything by Lori Foster, J.R. Ward, Suzanne Brockmann, Cindy Gerard and Roxanne St. Claire. For friendship, I have to say my husband. He's been supportive from the first page I ever wrote. I also have to say my critique partners have been a huge help over the years.
5. What’s coming up in the near future for you?
Well, I just signed my first contract last October and more than likely I will have 5 releases this year! Everything is moving so fast for me. I am working on a series right now and I have a goal in mind for these three stories. My first book signing is coming up on June1st at Barnes & Noble in West Chester, Ohio. This is a multi-author signing with nearly 30 authors, so I'm thrilled to be a part of that.
