White Flame Tour with Jordan Deen

Today I am pleased to welcome Jordan Deen to a GREAT read! Jordan is the author of The Crescent series (according to Goodreads). Jordan has been kind enough to answer a few questions that I thought up. Be sure to leave a comment to participate in The White Flame Tour. Jordan is having a contest, you can find the details here and here.

Now onto the interview!

JESSICA: What made you want to be a writer?

JORDAN: I've always loved writing, but I didn't start on my first full length novel until a few years ago. But, as most writer's will tell you, once you start, it's very difficult to "turn it off". :)

JESSICA: How did you decide to make your love triangle? Both guys have their positives and it's almost hard to choose a "team". Was this intentional? (This was of course directed more so after The Crescent, now after Half-Moon I have chosen a side!)

JORDAN: Yes. I'm sorry to say it was completely intentional. There is a very vital plot twist that is coming in Half Moon and Full Moon that I really needed the reader to be in love with both boys, equally. Each have their own draw backs and their own strong points. Who wouldn't love them both? I mean, I do.

JESSICA: There's quite a bit of mystery regarding Lacey, will that be explored more in Half-Moon?

JORDAN: Yes. Lacey's story will get more and more involved the further we get through her story. In Half Moon the reader will start to feel Lacey's struggle more as their own when they discover the sacrifices she is still being asked to make and the life changing information she discovers about her past and her soon-to-be future.

JESSICA: How many books do you have planned for the series?

JORDAN: Half Moon is the second in the series. The next installment, Full Moon will conclude Lacey's story. However, there is planned cross-over novel that you will learn more of in Full Moon. Fingers crossed the publisher loves it!

JESSICA: What kind of books do you like to read most? Any favorite authors or recommendations?

JORDAN: I'm a huge fan of YA Urban Fantasy and Edgy YA. My favorite book right now is Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles.

JESSICA: What was your road to publication like?

JORDAN: Oye. Long and bumpy. I think this is pretty standard and I can't say my experience has been any different than other authors out there. It's hard and can be heartbreaking at times, but it's worth it to share the stories of characters that I love dearly.

JESSICA: What do you plan to write next?

JORDAN: I've got more than five novels in process right now. I sort of have writing A-D-D. I like to go back and forth between novels based on my moods and the things going on in my personal life at the time. I personally identify with each character, so when they start invading my mind, I know it's time to work on that particular novel. Makes sense? 

JESSICA: Thanks for stopping by Jordan!
JORDAN: No problem!

  3. Nice interview. I'm soo looking forward to Half Moon!! I will say I'm not in love with both boys though. I'm very much team Brandon!! I like Alex, most of the time, but not always. Anyway, can't wait to see what happens next!

  4. Urban Fantasy is another genre that I've been really new with it. I only read a few of it kind of okay with it. But werewolf is another story, i found them so alluring! LOL
