Interview with Author Jamie Campbell

Jamie Campbell
Please take a moment to introduce yourself. 

 

My name is Jamie Campbell, I’m an author based on the Gold Coast, Australia. I write mainly young adult paranormal romance, however I do write some adult murder mysteries on the side. I enjoy both genres so I write whatever story comes to me.

 

Describe your writing process. Do you have a daily routine?

 

I have a set word goal every day. Without fail, I do at least 2,000 words. On a day where I get to write all day, I’ll write about 8,000 words across all my current projects.

 

Introduce us to your latest work. What’s it about?

 

A World Without Angels is the first in The Aron Angels series. It follows guardian angel Jerome as he inadvertently falls to Earth during a battle with some demons. While on Earth, he falls in love with a human, Leila. In order to stop the demons killing all the guardian angels and therefore plunging the world into the influences of evil, he and Leila must solve an ancient prophecy. Only then can peace be restored.

Speaking of your work, you have a number of titles available. Which of your books are you the most fond of?

 

I really enjoyed writing the Aron Angels series, mainly because Jerome is such a sweetheart. I also had a lot of fun with the Fairy Tales Retold series, where I twisted the perspective of well known fairytales. I changed the antagonist into the protagonist and enjoyed making the villain the hero.

 

If you had the choice of which book to introduce a new reader to, would that be it, or would you start them with a different book?

 

I would start with A World Without Angels as the reader can see the kind of worlds I create and fall in love with Jerome.

 

Do you have a character in your writing that you relate with more than most?

 

A have a four part series called A Hairy Tail going at the moment, I’m just in the middle in the forth installment. The main character is named Hannah and she’s a lot like me when I was fifteen. I have found a lot of myself in her when I read it back to myself, even though it wasn’t intentional.

 

Where do you find inspiration?

 

Inspiration is everywhere. Sometimes it’s found when I hear a song and then suddenly see this whole book in front of me. Other times, it’s from something I’ve seen or heard in the street. The best ideas always come to me in the shower and then I’m scrambling to remember them afterwards.

 

What can we look forward to in the future?

 

I have lots and lots more unpublished books. I’m currently working on an alien trilogy which I am so excited about that it might push all the others aside and jump the queue to be released next.

The Top Eight Things You Might Like to Know About Mindy Kilgrove – Guest Post

Mindy Green 3

Hello and thank you to everyone for reading my Guest Blog today. I’d like to extend a special thank you to G.S. for allowing me to post on his blog. My name is Mindy Killgrove and I’m a contemporary fiction, romance, and humor novelist. I have a great time popping from one genre to the next, but most of the time, I focus on creating fiction that my readers find realistic. On my own blog, I enjoy writing top eight lists. (Eight is my lucky number.) For today, I’d like to share with you:

The Top Eight Things You Might Like to Know About Me:

8.  I just moved to Perrysburg, OH with my family. I’ve lived in Ohio for the majority of my life, but I spent two years living near Charlotte, NC.

7.  I love media! In my own blogspace, I devote my blogs to writing about media-related items that move me. Movies, Books, Television, Music, Video Games: You name it and I cover it.

6.  I have two little boys at home. My obsession for media spread to them, as both were named after famous people.

5. In my books, I aim to write storylines that feel relatable to the readers. I use my own experiences as a jumping off point for my tales. When you read my stories they may feel real, because they are (in some cases).

4. The first book in the Missy Lawrence Series, Meet Me at the Pond, was dedicated to my sorority: The Philalethean Society of Heidelberg University. They are a local group, and I’m proud to call myself a member of this fine organization.

3.  Meet Me at Fountain Park, the second book in the Missy Lawrence series, is dedicated to the Fit Chicks of Ravenna, OH. I was a member of this group for a number of years and I was supremely moved by their caring and encouraging ways. The Fit Chicks promote healthy living that will not only benefit your body, but your mind and your soul as well.

2.  Every chapter in the Missy Lawrence series is based around answering a question. In that way, you can read a chapter, just like you would watch an episode of a TV show, and then come back to the book later—if necessary. (Or, you could read through the whole book in one afternoon, if that suits.)

1.  I love reading–I love sitting on my back porch and reading a book. This can be done in the sunshine or the shade, but either way, I enjoy kicking back and devouring a new novel. My own novels are what I would describe as the perfect books to throw in your beach bag and take down by the water. Whether you’re downloading the ebook or taking the paperback along with you, Meet Me at the Pond and Meet Me at Fountain Park are pure fun. They’ll help you relax and enjoy your vacation.

I created the Missy Lawrence Trilogy a few years ago. Currently, Meet Me at the Pond and Meet Me at Fountain Park are available in paperback and ebook editions. The third and final book in the series Meet Me at Rock Creek will be published before the end of the year. If you’ve ever been in love, or if you’re still searching for the right one, let Missy Lawrence and her gang of girlfriends entertain you (and commiserate, perhaps).
