Book Monster Reviews Blog and LITERAL ADDICTION Paranormal Book Club are VERY pleased to welcome USA Today and New York Times Bestselling author Jacquelyn Frank back to our sites today!
Jacquelyn was born in NY, started writing romantic fiction at the tender age of 13, and currently lives in North Carolina with her family, which of course includes her 9 beloved furbabies [read: cats].
Jacquelyn is the esteemed creator of the GATHERERS, SHADOWDWELLERS, THREE WORLDS & NIGHTWALKERS series, the last of which had its newest installment, Book #6 - “Adam”,just released on 10/25/11.
For those of you not yet familiar with NIGHTWALKERS, it’s an über sexy series about an engrossing alternate world with sexy Demons, hot Vampires, amazing Druids, action, suspense, drama, knee weakening love scenes, you name it!
Let’s give you the synopsis for “Adam” and peak your interest a bit:
Don't Forget: Jacki will be available to chat Live with members, followers, fans and guests in the LITERAL ADDICTION Author Chatroom from 2:00 - 4:00pm EST (1-3pm Central/12-2pm Mountain/11am-1pm Pacific).
So, now that we’ve given you a teeny tiny bit of information about Jacquelyn and introduced any new readers to the NIGHTWALKERS series that the new release, “Adam” belongs to, let’s find out about the real author behind NIGHTWALKERS, THREE WORLDS, SHADOWDWELLERS, and GATHERERS shall we!?
Jacquelyn has once again requested that we make our Interview fun, unique and exciting, and we are more than happy to rise to the challenge once more, so let’s see if we can do it again…
LITERAL ADDICTION/Book Monster Reviews: Hello again Jacki. Welcome back to our humble abodes. Thank you so very much for taking time out of your incredibly busy release schedule to sit down and chat with us once again and let us grill you! So, since we’ve already asked you our staple question, we had to find another way to break the ice. How about this?
LITERAL ADDICTION/Book Monster Reviews: Now, while we’d like to base the entire interview around getting to know you better (and we will grill you more a little later on), we probably should ask a little something about “Adam” and NIGHTWALKERS first…
Q2): What was your inspiration behind the NIGHTWALKERS series?
Jacki: A dream. I was an un-medicated bipolar at the time when I wrote the Nightwalkers series. I had some very interesting dreams as a result. One morning I woke up and immediately had to start writing. I could just see JACOB in my mind's eye, perched on that streetlamp, hovering over his objective...lying in wait. Thus the Demon Enforcer came to life.
LITERAL ADDICTION/Book Monster Reviews: Well, we think we’ve done our duty. We made readers aware of the new release, “Adam” and asked about a next release. I’m sure you’ll be more than happy to answer more questions in the Chat. Now though…we want to get to know more about the REAL Jacki! J
Q5): Who was your first love & what do you remember most about them – you can be serious, funny, we’ll take anything here?
Jacki: A nice Jewish boy whose mother hated me and called me a whore in Spanish thinking I didn’t know what it meant. Man, she was an evil woman. Look at the putana shiksa now, bitch! Muhahahah!
Q8): Have you ever been tied up for fun? Would you want to be? ;-)
Jacki: Tied up, tied down, ropes, handcuffs, …you name it and I’ve done it (evil grin)
Q11): If you could be any animal in the world for 24 hours, what would you want to be and why (we think we know the answer to this, but you’ll probably surprise us!)?
Jacki: A cat. I know. You’re shocked. But to laze around in the sun with no worries at all. I’d pay good money for that.
Q12): Have you ever accidently called a lover by another’s name (we’ve had experiences when we’ve accidently been called by a pet’s name, but we’re not sure that counts, especially since it was more of a frustrated moment not a ‘bow chicka bow wow’ one)?
Jacki: No! I have never done that before. Only an inconsiderate douche or an Alzheimer’s patient would do something like that. Sheesh!
Q15): What does your bedroom look like?
Jacki: As you walk through the door from the hallway you enter a room with walls of true jade. You see a cherry four-poster bed (usually with multiple cats lounging on it) and a tray ceiling. I have floor length cream curtains and a gorgeous harbor breeze baja style ceiling fan. In one corner is my treadmill that I swear I’m going to use any minute now, and in the other several cat trees for their climbing pleasure. If you were sitting on top of my craftmatic adjustable bed you would see my dresser in front of you, topped with items to represent every element in nature. Above it is my Sony 32inch flat screen TV and blue ray player(See? Tech girl). In the diagonal corner opposite the treadmill is my Barbie collection. I have Wonder Woman, Bewitched, Pisces, I Dream of Jeanie and the Italy Barbie. From there you move into the master bath and walk in closet.
Q16): What are the best and worst pick-up lines that you’ve ever heard?
Jacki: Umm…I’ve never been picked up. I’m very socially deficient in that way.
Q17): Have you ever had any crazy jobs (aside from your current one that is)?
Jacki: Well…I was the party hostess at McDonald’s once…
Q18): Is there a name that you’ve been dying to name one of your cats, but have never had ‘the right one’ for it yet?
Jacki: “Hey you!” :P Oh wait, that’s all of their nicknames.
Q19): We know you love to shop… what’s something that you can never have enough of?
Jacki: Shoes and handbags
Q20): Is there anything that you want to tell us about “Adam” or the NIGHTWALKERS series while we have you here today before the Live Chat?
Jacki: Yes, I have been hearing and receiving emails that many fans have gotten upset after reading the prologue and first chapter of ADAM. So much so, that they have thrown the book across the room and not wanted to continue reading. I just have to say …keep reading! Trust your author!
LITERAL ADDICTION/Book Monster Reviews: Well, that was really fun--again! I hope you enjoyed yourself answering as much as we did asking!? Thank you again for coming back today, for being so open with us, and for proving once again why we love you so much. We’re really looking forward to talking to you and your fans more in the Live Chat again later.
Jacki: Thanks so much for tolerating me again. Do I get a cookie? A neat bag for my assistant who loves skulls? I’m just asking…she’s not making me. You guys are SO much fun. I’ll come back any time you like! And even if you don’t like! I always have a blast and can’t wait for the chat!
