– Ada, what is your book Still a Bad Boy about?
– It’s about an innocent young girl who is unexpectedly thrust into a world of lust and danger with a powerful man who has a legitimate business front, but a history of crime and violence as well as an ongoing personal vendetta that he can never let go of.

– How did you decide to write the story?
– I’d been thinking for a while of how I could do a ‘bad boy’ story in a way that I liked. I wanted it to be absolutely smoking hot, and I wanted the Hero to be as bad as can be, and yet I wanted him to be bad in a way that I still found to be romantic and realistically redeemable.
– What was the biggest challenge during the write up process?
– Nothing really, this book was a joy to write. I did a lot of promotional work to try to give it the best chance I could to fly, being the first book on this pen name, and that was pretty tiring! So I guess I’ll say all that other work was the biggest challenge, rather than the writing process itself.
– Tell us something more about your main characters Kendall and Jace? Are they close to someone from your real life?
– No, they’re not based on anybody in my life. I’d say each of them are more based on parts of myself. I identify with Kendall’s moments of self-doubt and problems with confidence, a well as Jace’s desire to make up for the past. There’s also a certain amount of wish fulfillment in there as well, the ultimate power that is Jace Barlow, charging through life like a freight train that cannot be stopped.
– How much time did you need to finish the story and to publish it?
– I wrote it in about a month and spent a couple months getting everything ready to unleash it upon the world.
– Who are you?
– I’m a self-publisher making as much hay as I can while the sun shines. I write because I love it, I publish because I like when I write the things that people want to buy. I’m working hard to be successful.
– What are your writing habits?
– I have a pretty chaotic schedule that I hope will settle down somewhat next year. At the moment I write when I can, trying to get out about 2k words per day.
– Are you satisfied by the sales of your book?
– Sure. It peaked at #18 in the entire Kindle ebook store and has been hanging out around the #30 point for a while now. For a first novel, I’d be insane not to be happy with that 🙂
– What are you doing to promote your book by the best possible way?
– I booked plenty of promotions ahead of publishing, begged for plugs in newsletters of author friends and I did a big pre-release raffle to drum up interest.
– When we will see your next novel and would you unveil something more about it?
– It should be out in early 2016. Subscribers to my newsletter can get a bonus “Still a Bad Boy” story that gives a MASSIVE teaser about where the next book in the series is going:
– Do you remember the moment when you decide to become a writer?
– Sure do. It was back in 2012 and I saw on the forums of what is basically a comedy website that people were making some pretty good money self-publishing. I read some of the stories, looked at the process involved and I thought to myself “I can do this”. Lo and behold, I could do this.
– Why you select romance genre for your field of creativity?
– Initially just because it’s the most popular genre, which best satisfies my goal for publishing (writing things that people want to buy), even though it was never a genre that held much interest for me. However, the more I write it, the more I like it!
– If you may ask yourself one question in the interview what it will be?
– Why do you have so much sex in your book? Because Jace cannot get enough of Kendall!
