HAVENWOOD FALLS – This week we have had the opportunity to chat with the bestselling author of fantasy romance and adult paranormal romance, JD Nelson. Nelson has written Soul Laid Bare, a Sin & Silk novella that is the sequel to Plans Laid Bare. Some of her other works are Night Aberrations, A Night of Wickedness, Control, plus many more.
Nelson has taken some time out of her busy schedule to answer some of our questions.
What made you want to start writing?
In 2009, I became very ill and was off from work for over a month. During that time, I delved into reading like it was my job. I read everything I could get my hands on. That’s when I discovered PC Cast and her Goddess Summoning series. I LOVED it! After I was well enough to go back to work, I emailed her a fan letter telling her how much I loved her books. To my surprise, she emailed back and told me how eloquent my message was. After reading that, I thought—huh, if PC thinks I write well, maybe I can write my own books. The rest is history!
How do you come up with character names?
Honestly, if they’re just regular everyday characters, I just come up with them off the top of my head. For my books with characters that are foreign or from an age long ago, Google is my best friend!
Out of all of the books you have written which one is your favorite?
I would say it’s probably All I Want For Christmas Are My Two Front Fangs. It was fun to write, AND it combines my two favorite things—vampires and Christmas!
What is your go-to genre to read?
What else? Paranormal romance! I do read a bit of contemporary romance, but if there’s no sex in it, I just can’t finish it. I feel let down. LOL
Do you have any other new releases coming soon?
I do! My very first contemporary erotic romance novella, Control (A Tale of Desire Vol. 1), will be out sometime in late March or early April.
What is your favorite food?
I’m a sucker for a good plate of chicken parmesan. YUM!
Thank you, JD, for your time and answering our questions. Soul Laid Bare releases March 15, 2019. Grab your copy for 99c for a limited time and consider leaving a review when you are finished. Stop by the Sin & Silk Book Club on Facebook for the release party March 15. 2019
About the Author
JD Nelson is a Bestselling Author of Fantasy Romance and Paranormal Romance. She is also the owner of Chaste Moon Publishing, an independent publishing house. A transplant from Mobile, Alabama, she gave up Mardi Gras and frequent hurricanes to move to the earthquake capital of the United States, the San Francisco Bay Area. She now lives in Central Valley, California with her amazingly supportive husband and three cats who think they’re dogs.
Always short on time, JD has long ago mastered the art of procrastination and was recently crowned Procrastinator of the Year by her editor, which is only slightly better than her being voted Most Likely to Waste Time by Watching Vampire Movies by her readers last year. All jokes aside, JD is a boringly normal person who thinks that coffee pretty much fixes everything … as long as it’s before 6:30AM and the planet Mars is in retrograde. When she’s not spending time with her sexy Swedish husband, you can find her writing, reading, or on her commute to her day job where she wrangles paint onto canvas for the entertainment industry.
JD loves to hear from her readers. You can contact her through her website, AuthorJDNelson.com, or on Facebook, where she spends an alarming amount of time chatting to her many author and reader friends, much to the dismay of her continually neglected manuscripts.
