Let’s get you introduced to everyone, shall we?!
Hi! I’m J Rose, a dark romance author and avid reader from the not so sunny UK. I have recently embarked upon my career as an indie author, and I love to write messy, flawed characters that tackle real world issues.
What prompted you to pursue a career as a writer?
I have always felt incredibly passionate about reading and writing. Studying English Literature for my degree only furthered this curiosity for the written word, until I eventually decided to put pen to paper and give this author gig a whirl. It’s been amazing so far, and I feel blessed to be surrounded by such a supportive community.
Do you have any special writing habits?
I am a nocturnal writer, my brain simply doesn’t do words during the day. Not one bit. An evening dedicated to writing usually involves me sticking on one of my chaotic playlists, pouring an extra large coffee (yes, even in the PM) and hiding my phone for a few hours.
When you write a new book, do you already have the whole story in mind or do you elaborate it along the way?
With my debut, I found myself constantly evolving and developing the narrative along the way. Spending time with the characters only increased my understanding of them, and so it was necessary to make adjustments to encompass this. But the bones of the story were very much there to begin with, albeit more simplistic than the final result.
In your opinion what is the best book you have written? What’s your favourite book ever?
As proud as I am of my first attempt at publishing a book, I am always learning and changing. I’ve picked up a lot along the way in recent months, so I hope that my next installment will be even better. Being encouraged and educated by others has been one of the best parts of joining the indie author community, so I’m excited to keep going and improving. For my favourite book, I am a die hard Great Gatsby fan, always have been. I’ve lost count of the amount of times I have read it, and I own (don’t laugh)… eight copies. Yes, I have a problem. It was the first unconventional romance novel that I fell in love with.
How do you feel after writing a book?
Relieved, excited… nervous. All in equal measure. It was a rollercoaster.
Tell us about your latest book and please put the link so our readers can find it.
My debut novel IF YOU BREAK released on 21st August, and it is book one in The Redeemed Trilogy. It is a dark, paranormal MFM romance, and it follows the journey of our heroine, Lexi, who has suffered a traumatic death and finds herself forced back into her body to endure a second life. It’s full of secrets, plot twists and a fair bit of angsty romance too.
