Jamieson Wolfe

CONTEST: Jamieson has five copies of HARD and five copies of HARDER to give away! The first ten people to leave a comment will win a free ebook copy of Hard or Harder! So, remember to leave your email!

AL: Hi Jamieson. Thanks for being in the “Author Spotlight” this week.

Jamieson: Hey Ann! Thanks for having me! It’s a real pleasure to be here.

AL: So, tell us what’s happening with you.

Jamieson: What’s going on? Well my husband and I will be celebrating our fifth anniversary this March, so that’s a good thing.

I’m also a lot busier than I thought I would be in 2009! I’m teaching workshops in March, October and November so far, so I’m preparing for that.

Other than that, I’m working hard at my day job, reading and spending far too much time playing video games on my Nintendo DS. Currently I’m enjoying Grand Theft Auto: China Town Wars. It’s awesome!

AL: Cleo, Cupid, wolves and the professor, oh my! So, tell us about a current or upcoming release…

Jamieson: Well my newest release is called HARDER. It’s the second book in the Hard series and continues the adventures of Owen Wolfe. He has the incredible luck of having his fantasies come to life, whether he wants them to or not!

Coming up is a short titled Glory that will be published by Breathless Press in March!

AL: You write in several different genres, do you prefer one over another? Do you find it difficult switching from say paranormal fiction, to non-fiction?

Jamieson: I think if I had to pick a genre I prefer, I would have to say speculative fiction. I love having that fantasy element in my writing. Of course, this means I can write romance, suspense, young adult, whatever tickles my fancy at the time.

I don’t find it too difficult changing genre’s. I never like to write the same story twice, so I’m always working on two or three different projects at the same time. The variety keeps me from getting too bored and produces a lot of work.

AL: What is the strangest source of writing inspiration you’ve ever had?

Jamieson: I’d have to say the talks I have at bus stops. The idea that strangers will talk to you about almost anything, even not knowing who you are, is the most bizarre thing to me. A lot of my short stories have come from conversations at bus stops. And some of them have been really odd, like something out of one of my novels!

But it just goes to show you that real life can be the best inspiration of all!

AL: Do you have a mentor or critique partner that you work with consistently?

Jamieson: I don’t have a mentor or critique partner, but I do belong to a critique group called Muse Macabre. Everyone who submits work writes speculative or dark fiction, so I fit in with no problems!

I love working with a critique group because you can get a good sounding board for a story or novel that is giving you trouble. And they’re always honest, which is a great thing when you’re a writer and very unsure of yourself and your work.

AL: Which of your books feature your family/friends, etc? What characters are modeled after them? Why?

Jamieson: Several of my books feature family and friends. In fact, The Hunted Series, my series of four books that revolve around soap operas and serial killers, feature my mother (Susan), and three of my good friends (Nai, Erin and Sandy).

More often than not, though, I try not to have too many of my friends or family in my stories. They get wierded out if there’s a sex scene, especially if it features them! LOL

AL: Here we go…it’s time to get personal! When you have a day all to yourself, no hubby and the she-cat is nestled asleep somewhere, what do you do with this sudden free-time?

Jamieson: Well I’ll write, no question. But I write till I feel like I’m done. Then I might work on a canvass or two, play some video games on my Nintendo DS and then read to my hearts content with a glass or two of wine. A bliss!

I’m also an artist. I find that with my writing I can express myself one way. With my art, I’m expressing things that I might not be able to put into words. So I will quite often put on some nice music and work on a canvass or two. I work with cante and mixed media on canvass most of the time.

AL: What favorite movie; or T.V. show makes you hunker down on the sofa and settle in for the night?

Jamieson: I have only one and it’s on winter hiatus. Sigh. But it’s GLEE. I LOVE LOVE LOVE that show. I have the first half of season one on DVD and am watching it now. I could watch Glee all day and still want to watch more! If you haven’t seen it, watch it. It’s television that will fill you with joy.

I also love to veg out so I watch lots of The Simpsons, Family Guy and Robot Chicken, oh, and South Park. Those are my faves.

AL: You are told you have to meet one paranormal creature, no safeguards, what do you choose? What do you bring with you?

Jamieson: I’d love to meet one of the Fey. Preferably a Dryad. I might bring a sketch pad and some coloured pencils or some charcoal. I’d hopefully be able to coax the Dryad from their tree and have a conversation about what it was like to see the world made.

AL: Valentine’s Day is around the corner…what do you and your hubby do to celebrate the day of love?

Jamieson: Well this year, we’re going to Montreal for a little get away. It’s also our anniversary of when we met on March 2nd, so we’re celebrating 5 years together a little early.

My husband isn’t a huge fan of Valentines Day. This year, he’s calling it Black Sunday. But that doesn’t stop me. I’ll be eating tons of heart shaped chocolate and, hopefully, get a little something. We’re probably going to exchange new wedding rings and redo our vows.

AL: Can you share some of your plans for 2010 and beyond?

Jamieson: Well 2010 will be a busy one. I have my memoir coming out later this year in paperback as well as the 2nd book in my Hunted Series coming out in paperback. I have two more paperback releases this year as well, a second book of short stories and a holiday novella. Beyond 2010? I have no idea! We’ll have to see what it brings.

AL: Please share a favorite quote(s) with us.

Jamieson: There’s one that I carry around with me all the time. It’s by Margaret Atwood and it goes: A word after a word is power. Isn’t that what all writers do? Put one word after another? It rings true for me, you know?

AL: Thanks so much for sharing with joining us this week, Jamieson.

Jamieson: And thanks for having me Ann, it’s been a delight!

FEATURED TITLE: HARDER
Blurb:

Owen had always fantasized about Sebastian. Working in the same publishing house, Owen saw Sebastian every day but they never spoke. Owen always imagined what Sebastian would look like naked, what it would be like to touch him.

One day, Owen’s fantasy comes to life when Sebastian makes a pass at him.

But the fun has only just begun. And Owen's cock will be harder than ever before by the time the day is over...


Excerpt:

Every time Owen saw Sebastian, he felt his heart swoon, just a little bit.

Sebastian was straight, so there wasn’t a hope in hell, but a boy could dream. He was over six feet with dark hair. He had serious blue eyes and pouty lips, framed by a closely shaved goatee.

They worked as copy editors for the same publishing house. Owen had yet to hear him utter a word even though they sat only a few cubicles apart from each other. Sebastian would come in, do his job and go home.

Owen fantasized about him all the time.

He wondered what Sebastian’s cock looked like. What Sebastian looked like shirtless. Owen wondered if Sebastian’s chest was hairy. He wondered what Sebastian’s voice sounded like. Would it be deep or a soft, smooth baritone?

At home, late at night, he would let his imagination play. Owen would close his eyes and picture Sebastian naked: toned but not too muscular, a scattering of hair on his chest leading down to his crotch. Owen wondered what it would be like to kiss him and to have Sebastian kiss him back.

Picturing Sebastian, Owen would stroke himself, letting the thought of Sebastian’s hands roaming over his skin drive him over the edge.

He wondered about the size of Sebastian’s cock.

Owen soon got his answer.

This was a fun interview to read! I especially liked the quote and ways to get inspiration. I never thought of the bus stop. Although if I ever attempted it I'd have to find a safer neighborhood than where I live. I get ideas by people watching at the malls, reading body language and watching facial expressions. Thanks for sharing. Both books sound like great reads and I'm looking forward to it.

Hi Jamieson!!

Great interview Jamieson and Ann!

Robot chicken happens to be a favorite in my house too. Hubby and my middle sone watch it all the time. I must admit, I've started liking it myself. LOL

Talking with people at bus stops...Hmmm....Maybe you should start a series about that. "Bus Stop Lovers." :)

Interesting interview. Is Valentine's Day your anniversary, Jamieson? You mentioned exchanging new rings and renewing your vows. A romantic way to spend "Black Sunday" indeed.

Always enjoy Ann's Interviews...Thanks Ann!
Jamieson...Harder looks amazing! I have never read more then excerpts of male romance, however I think I will be starting with this one! Hot!
As an aspiring author myself I am attempting several new genres and I must read to learn! Somehow, this just makes it all so much more fun!
Yours,
Gina
