Jennifer took time from her very busy schedule to do an interview for this blog. Thanks, Jennifer!
Congratulations on being the first author to hit the number one spot on the Digital Book World Ebook Bestseller List with a self-published book, Wait For You. (here is the Forbes article) I am not going to ask the captain obvious “how did that feel?” Please tell us what you did to celebrate!
I really haven’t had time to celebrate because I’m in the middle of writing a book right now. I didn’t even go out to dinner!
On that subject — out of the 7,000,000,000 + people in the world, you are the one person to do this. While you wrap your head around that I’d like to ask a question; Are you really the love child of a Pure descended from the Gods and a Luxen? Is that where your awesomeness comes from?
Yes, I’m definitely the love child of a Pure and a Luxen. That’s how I came up with the ideas for my books in the first place. I wanted to write about my ancestry.
(I knew it!! 😉 )
You are being referred to as a “hybrid author” because you are published traditionally and also self-published. You clearly would not have a problem going the traditional route with your Adult and New Adult romance novels. What made you chose to self-publish Wait For You?
For me, it was just the right decision for that particular book at that particular time.
While everyone waits for Apollyon, book #4 in the Covenant series to be released April 9th (yay!). And Origin, book #4 of the Lux series to be released on August 27th, 2013. Will you give all of us swooning–will literally die if you don’t– crazed Daemon & Aiden fans any kind of a …. anything? We will take whatever we can get.
I can’t give away too much. In Apollyon, there is a very hot scene in a very unexpected place. In Origin, someone unexpected betrays Daemon and Katy.
(OMG! Very hot? betrayal? We will discuss at the end of this post!)
I have a cat named Logan (Wolverine Xmen), you have a dog named Loki. Jennifer, did you name your dog after a god from Norse mythology or are you a Marvel fan?
Loki is named after a god from Norse mythology. I’m actually not a huge Marvel fan.
Like all of your fans, I am looking forward to Frigid to be released July 30th 2013 and Don’t Look Back, to be released Spring 2014. Is there anything else you are working on or would like to tell us about?
The final book of the Covenant series is being released this fall, and I have a new YA paranormal series with Harlequin coming out in 2014. There is also another book in the Wait for You series called Be With Me which features Teresa and Jase. There isn’t a release date yet, but there should be more news in the coming weeks.
Thank you so much, Jennifer!

For twenty-one-year-old Sydney, being in love with Kyler isn’t anything new. They’d been best friends ever since he pushed her down on the playground and she made him eat a mud pie. Somewhere over the years, she fell for him and fell hard. The big problem with that? Kyler puts the ‘man’ in man-whore. He’s never stayed with a girl longer than a few nights, and with it being their last year in college, Syd doesn’t want to risk their friendship by declaring her love.
Kyler has always put Syd on a pedestal that was too high for him to reach. To him, she’s perfect and she’s everything. But the feelings he has for her, he’s always hidden away or focused on any other female. After all, Kyler will always be the poor boy from the wrong side of tracks, and Syd will always be the one girl he can never have.
But when they’re stranded together at a posh ski resort due to a massive Nor’easter, there’s nothing stopping their red-hot feelings for each other from coming to the surface. Can their friendship survive the attraction? Better yet, can they survive at all? Because as the snow falls, someone is stalking them, and this ski trip may be a life-changer in more ways than one.
Frigid will be available in digital formats on July 30th 2013 Print release of Frigid will be November 5th 2012

Black Swan meets Pretty Little Liars Spring 2014 Disney/Hyperion
and high school senior Ember McWilliams knows firsthand. After a fatal car accident, her gifted little sister brought her back. Now anything Ember touches dies. And that, well, really blows.
Ember operates on a no-touch policy with all living things–including boys. When Hayden Cromwell shows up, quoting Oscar Wilde and claiming her curse is a gift, she thinks he’s a crazed cutie. But when he tells her he can help control it, she’s more than interested. There’s just one catch: Ember has to trust Hayden’s adopted father, a man she’s sure has sinister reasons for collecting children whose abilities even weird her out. However, she’s willing to do anything to hold her sister’s hand again. And hell, she’d also like to be able to kiss Hayden. Who wouldn’t?
But when Ember learns the accident that turned her into a freak may not’ve been an accident at all, she’s not sure who to trust. Someone wanted her dead, and the closer she gets to the truth, the closer she is to losing not only her heart, but her life.
For real this time.
