Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.
Melanie Jayne/M. Jayne– I’m a bitch, I’m a lover, I’m a child…well you get the picture. I spend my days creating women that I want to hang with, men that I want to do all kinds of dirty, filthy things to, and my nights tending to my dog and long-suffering hubby on our grain farm in Indiana. I write Paranormal Romance featuring the Novus Pack and Contemporary Seasoned Romance. I live to write and must write to live. I like my pizza with lots of cheese, my music loud, and my friends to have foul mouths and if you love trashy TV like the Real Housewives or Steve Wilkos— Let’s be friends. My life is never dull– I’m not for everybody but I am entertaining.
When you are writing, what are some go to’s that you needs? IE Foods to eat, noise level, place to sit.
Dog out/dog in, laundry started, candle lit, music on- each book has a playlist, Hint Watermelon water if it is a Novus book, Coffee, and Dove milk chocolate.
What are you favorite things about attending signings?
The planning of the table, packing up the stuff, the excitement in the room as we are all setting up, the anticipation before the doors open and THE READERS!!!! Seeing old friends and Making new ones. We all the same in common- we love to read!
What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?
Anne Perry (yes, I will go to Scotland) and Patricia Briggs
When you are writing, do you have a consistent schedule where you write every day at the same time or are you a sit and go on different days to get it done kinda person?
I try to write every day but Tuesday. If it isn’t flowing then I stop. I write 2.5-3 hours a day and usually in the morning, sometimes between 2-5 in the afternoon if my characters are talking to me. I edit in long stretches because the first round fixes are so difficult.
What is your favorite memory so far as an author?
At Kristen Ashley’s Rock Chick Weekend in Indianapolis. Singling along to Pearl Jam’s song, Black. Everybody was on the dance floor with our arms around one another. She brought us all together and it was a magical night. There also might be a few other stories that I can’t put in writing but they involve Cowboy Cocksuckers( Google it– it’s a drink) and shenanigans.
Do you have a book that is your most prized possession? What is it and why is it so amazing?
I have a book from my childhood, Christmas in a Small Village, that my mom would read to me every year, until I could read, and then I did it. I still get it out every year and read it.
