Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself and which Twinsie do you know.Hi! My name is Jessie Lane and I am super blessed to know Twinsies Angie and Melinda the best. They have been a blast to have as friends and readers through the years and I cherish them a great deal. Especially Angie because she has absolutely no problem verbally kicking my butt to get it in gear.
When you are writing a book, which is harder? The first book in the series or the others after it?For me, the books after the first are the hardest. I feel that readers have these expectations of what I should or should not do with the characters, and I struggle with staying true to my vision versus making readers happy.
What comes first? The plot or characters?Honestly, that’s a toss up. I could go through every book and answer this question and it would end in a 50/50 scenario for plot or characters. I’m always open to the creative ideas or characters that come to me and I just go from there.
What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?Wow, this one is hard because I have been insanely blessed to meet some of my unicorn authors such as Lora Leigh, Jeaniene Frost and JR Ward. However I would absolutely love to meet Karen Marie Moning and Kresley Cole.
If you could ask that author three questions about their writing, writing process, or books, what would they be?“If I could ask Karen Marie Moning and/or Kresley Cole three questions they would be: 1) Do you plan on starting more new series in the future? 2) Do you read as much as you write? 3) What is your favorite supernatural/paranormal species?”
What is harder? The blurb writing, naming the book, or naming the series?The blurb! How in the hell do you summarize an entire book in two paragraphs without giving it all away? It drives me nuts sometimes.
What is your favorite memory so far as an author?Honestly, it’s a mash-up of meeting all my readers. I’m constantly humbled by how many people have read my books and want to come meet me in person. I’m just little ol’ me, and it blows my mind that other people like what I write.
What is your definition of success?Success is completing a mission and feeling gratification from it. Whether that’s cleaning my house, writing a book or not killing my kids when they drive me nuts. Sometimes life is about big wins, but mostly it’s about cherishing those everyday little wins.
