Paranormal Romance Author Melanie James – Book Elves Event Interview

This is the interview that I did with Melanie James for the Book Elves on the Shelves Event. She will be taking over on Dec. 2nd 2-3pm CENTRAL so drop in and play some games and say hello!

Are you an indie author or with a publisher and what do you find the pros and cons to be for each?
I’m an Indie Author. The pros are that I work on my own schedule and I have total control over my projects from the cover design to publication. The major con is that all the work falls to me.

What is your current “work in progress”?
Joyful Leigh, which will be released mid December

How many books do you currently have out and titles if you would like?
I have 10 titles out right now:
A Valentine’s Surprise
A Deadly Obsession
Conjuring Darkness
Accidental Leigh
Serious Leigh
Hopeful Leigh
Haunting Leigh
Éveiller 1 – Ava & Will
Éveiller 2 – Kara & Dave
Éveiller 3 – Laura & Alan

What one character from your book or books do you connect with most and why?
Kelly from the Literal Leigh Romance Diaries, because I’m usually that bitchy snarky friend who goes looking for trouble 😉

Being that this event is for the Christmas Season do you have any special traditions that you would like to share with us?
Each person (kids & adults) gets to open one present on Christmas Eve.

What is your favorite Christmas dessert?
Cookies … specifically peanut butter blossoms. (PB cookies with a Hershey Kiss on top)

What is the worst gift that you have ever received for Christmas?
An alternator for my car….

Who is your favorite author and or favorite book?
Unfair question. Seriously, I can’t pick 1. I’m a book whore!

If you had to describe yourself in three words what would they be?
Snarky, Funny, Loving.

What are your thoughts on being apart of the upcoming Book Elves on the Shelves event?
I’m looking forward to meeting new readers and spending some time with others who have read my stories.
