Interview- Release Day Blitz Jayded by Shevaun DeLucia

Do you write in different genres?

Yes, my first book was a YA Paranormal Romance, and my second book is New Adult.

If yes which is your favorite genre to write?

I love both! But, if I have to choose, I would choose New Adult. Writing about sex is fun! Lol.

How did you come up with the title for your latest book?

Jayded, in the Urban Dictionary, means to sexually pleasure to the extreme. Even though this isn’t a true word, I fell in love with it.

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

I was in the middle of writing both books when I titled them.

Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?

Love has no boundaries or limits. Age is just a number.

What book are you reading now?

Fifty Shades Freed. Yes, I just had to see what everyone was gossiping about, and I have to say, I love the series!

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

I am currently in the middle of writing the second book in the Eternal Mixture series, and after that, I will be doing a spin-off of Jayded.

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

Maya Banks. She isn’t afraid to write what people won’t talk about or do. She tests the boundaries, and I absolutely love it!

Do you have to travel much to do research for your books?

Nope. Not yet anyways. I use the good ole Internet for my research.

Who designed the cover of your latest book?

George Parulski of Eastway Photography. He is AMAZING!

Do you have any advice for other writers?

If your dream is to write, then do it! Follow your heart, sit your butt down in a chair, and write! All authors start there. And don’t forget to believe in yourself.

Do you have a song or playlist (book soundtrack) that you think represents this book?

Book Description:

Maxine Daniels was made an offer that she couldn’t refuse. She couldn’t think of a better time—after breaking things off with her fiancĂ©—to change cities and merge her company with Saunders Literary Agency. At thirty-three, she isn’t getting any younger, so it’s time to start fresh and leave her past behind.

What she doesn’t anticipate is the diversion that lies ahead. Kyle Saunders is a catastrophic tsunami that enters her life and consumes her world in just a matter of minutes. Everything about him is telling her no, but her heart and the heat between her legs is screaming yes. He was never a factor in her divine plan—nor was she in his.

Kyle is the clichĂ© bachelor; he is a twenty-four-year-old charismatic chick magnet who refuses to settle down. He’s dead set on living the carefree single life—that is—until Max comes strolling in. Then all his ridiculous rules fall to the wayside.

Who knew that just one hello could alter their lives forever?
