An Interview & A GIVEAWAY with AJ Best

When the wires of communication get crossed and tangled, is love enough to bring everything back into balance?

Mary is prepared for the anniversary of a lifetime. Ten years of wonderful memories fill her mind. She can’t wait to see what the next ten will bring. When her plans for early morning seduction fail, her mind jumps to worst case scenarios.

Joe’s attention, focused elsewhere, may be the straw that breaks the camel’s back. Will he be able to come up with a good reason for forgetting their anniversary?

As the day continues, will the answers Mary finds leave her in tears? Will she find the next ten years dreams shattered before her? Only Joe holds the answers to the questions her heart asks.
Welcome, AJ, how long have you been an author?
AJ: I've been an author since 7th grade when my mother had a typewrite on my desk. I didn't do much with it, except awe my senior English teacher with my final paper. The assignment was to pick a month and write about it. Mine was December the Depressing Month.

What is your favorite genre?
AJ: I am a paranormal junkie. I love witches, weres, vampires, fairies, etc. I don't care if they are f/f, f/m, etc.

If someone hasn't read any of your work, what book would you recommend they start with and why?
AJ: Since I only have out Forgiveness, I fear that would be all I could give them. With a bit of spice, attitude, and boom chicka wow wow, what wouldn't be to love about reading this.

What is the biggest surprise you’ve discovered about the writing process?
AJ: The voices in my head don't agree with what I want to do. There is a constant battle until they get what they want, when they want. It's rather…annoying..

Can you tell us about one of your current works in progress?
AJ: I have so many going on, but I will tell you about my paranormal romance Blue Rose Night. It starts out with pain, loss, and more pain. All of this brings our hero into the situation. He's called toward her pain and her closeness to death. Our hero, a vampire.

Name one thing readers would be surprised to know about you.
AJ: I think they'd be shocked that I'm not as vanilla as I seem.

Name your top three writing goals?
AJ: I"d like to have Blue Rose Night (paranormal) finished by the end of the year. I'd like to have Sometimes Love Isn't Enough (women's fiction) and there is a call out for SCP that I'd like to finish by the end of the year as well. So many words, so hard to put them in order. :)

If you had a warning label, what would it say?
AJ: Be careful what you ask for, you'll get the truth. Like it or not.

If you had the chance to meet one of your characters privately, who would it be and what would you do?
AJ: I'd like to meet my vampire Giovanni. As he does with Kendra - he would wrap me in his arms and keep me safe from the world around me. Isn't that what every girl wants?

What is the naughtiest thing you’ve ever done?
AJ: Remember my warning label? When I was young and stupid, I had sex on the hood of a car. It was just then that the Derby let out next door.
I'd like to thank AJ for joining us today. For those of you who would like to learn more about AJ and her work she can be reached through these links:
