Interview with Jessica Gibson

1       What book are you reading now? 

It’s called The Demon Lover by Juliet Dark, really enjoying it so far.

2       What books are in your to read pile? 

Oh, I have so many in that pile lol. The next book up to be read is Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning, my friends have been bugging me to read this series.

3       What is your current “work in progress” or upcoming projects? 

I generally work on a few books at a time. Right now I’m working on my YA book Haunted U, and also getting my vampire book Love and Blood ready to Publish next month.

4       Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing? For me it’s love scenes lol. They always give me anxiety, probably because I know that my family will read it.

5       Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work? 

I love Diana Gabaldon, she combines the perfect amount of love story and historical fiction to her books.

6       Who designed the cover of your latest book?

 Russ Turner Photography designed the cover for Mark of the Witch and also Chasing the Witch. He got my vision so completely.

7       Do you have any advice for other writers? 

Yes, never give up! IT gets hard sometimes, but remember that you’re doing it for you and no one else. Also, invest in a good editor, and a cover artist. Your cover will sell your book, and poor editing will get you bad reviews.

8       Do you title the book first or wait until after it’s complete? 

Usually I get about halfway into a book before I give it a title. I like to get to know my characters before I give the book its name.
