Interview with Jessica Prince author of "Picking up the Pieces"

Interview with Jessica Prince author of

“Picking Up The Pieces

So today I had the pleasure of Interviewing Jessica Prince, author of Picking up the Pieces. Which is the first of the Picking up the Pieces series.

What book are you reading now?
Right now I’m reading the Dark Prince by S.L. Jennings even though she told me not to ;)
Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?
Oh, hell yeah! I read Unteachable by Leah Raeder and was floored at the level of talent that chick had in her first book. I thought it was amazing and I can’t wait to see what she writes next.
If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor?
I’ve made so many friends in the process of writing and publishing and each of them have helped me tremendously but I have to say that the one that helped me the MOST would probably be Lynda LeeAnne. She’s just released her third book in her This Can’t Be Happening Series and she’s helped me from day one. Whenever I had my epic freak-outs about PUTP not being good enough she talked me off the ledge. She was definitely my go-to girl when I needed someone. I don’t know how many times I texted her in the middle of the night with an idea. I love that girl and I’m so glad that she’s become one of my best friends.

What inspired you to write your first book?
Technically, Picking up the Pieces isn’t my first book… but it is the first one that was good enough to publishJ. When I wrote Luke and Emmy’s story I wanted to write a story with a strong leading female. There are so many books out there with strong, alpha men, (and don’t get me wrong… I LOVE my alpha dudes) but I wanted to write a book where the heroine was the strong one. That was my main goal when I wrote both Emerson and Savannah. I took strong as hell women and wrapped a story around them.

What are your current projects?
Write my standalone, Nightmares from within, is with my editor and I’m hoping it’ll be ready to release around October 8th. I stepped outside of my comfort zone and wrote a romantic thriller instead of my standard contemporary romance and I’m in the oh-my-god-this-book-is-shit phase right now ;). I just hope I did that genre justice.
After that one is out I’m heading back to Cloverleaf to finish up Savvy and Jeremy’s story.
I'm a wife, mother, wino, coffee addict and avid a lover of all types of books, but romances are my main favs. My husband likes to say reading is my obsession but I just say it's my passion... there's a difference.

I've been writing since I was a little kid and I finally decided to take the leap and actually publish when Picking up the Pieces came to me. Now that I've been bitten by the writing bug I just can't seem to stop.
