Interview with the dynamic Jocelyn Dex

Q: What question do you wish that someone would ask about Araya’s Addiction?

A: May I pay you millions of dollars to make a movie based on it? :-)

Q: When you're brainstorming for a new story, what usually comes first for you, the plot or the characters?

A:  Characters always come first for me. They are the life of the story. When I’m reading, if a story has an incredibly thin plot but has fun and interesting characters I care about, that’s fine with me. Of course, it’s best when you have compelling characters AND a great plot, but it’s the characters and their interactions with each other that move me.

Q:  If you had to grab three things (and ONLY three things) from your house to evacuate due to a zombie invasion, what would they be?

A: My dogs and cat (I’m counting all six of them as one item:-)), a gun, and a box of tampons. I don’t want to be in the middle of a zombie invasion without tampons!

Q: Do your family and friends know what you write? If so, what do they think about it?

A:  Yes. Most of them think it’s cool or think it’s funny. Except my dad who is probably pretty disgusted. Ha. My husband tells his coworkers that his wife writes porn. I explained to him that I write “erotic paranormal romance” not “porn”.

Q: What are you working on now?

A: Sempire Seductions is the name of the series I’m working on now. Araya’s Addiction is Book 1 (available now). Valia’s Villain is Book 2 and Fin’s Fantasy is Book 3. Book 2 and 3 have been accepted for publication. I’m just waiting on contract stuff and then my awesome editor and I can get into edits. I’m SUPER excited and can’t wait. I’m even considering a Book 4.

Q: Where can we visit you online?

Reviews of Araya’s Addiction

Gaele @ The Jeep Diva:

…With several steamy to downright scorching scenes, clever dialogue, humor and the potential for a happy ever after, this was a really fun and clever read. Dex has created a new sexual demon, and made them lovable, if not a bit outrageous in their attitudes and thinking. The desires and emotions of the characters were easy to relate to as the characters were well-defined and voiced, a nice addition to this novella. 

Anna @ Book Lovin’ Mamas:

…The chemistry between Araya and Kean was smokin' hot and they were great individual characters too. And I LOVE the sister and Mom. They were quite entertaining! … Overall this was a great read! Lots of fun and very very sexy! I can't wait to read something else from this author and I will be impatiently waiting for more! ;)

Diana @ Offbeat Vagabond

…Goodness gracious, this book should come with a warning. I swear even my ereader was heating up while reading this and it wasn't even plugged in. I enjoyed the hell out of this. I think if you are like me and you are a fan of Larissa Ione's books, you will love this. This was a super sexy read that will heat you up from head to toe.
