Interview with Amber Rogers

Published 2014-07-02.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Of course, it was a book called Before I Die. I cant recall the author, but the book was very emotional. It made me laugh, cry and get angry all at once. If anyone knows of the book I am referring to, then I am sure they felt the same If not, it is a highly recommended book!
How do you approach cover design?
Well, being a new author, and a single mother, I couldn't really afford to purchase one. Luckily for me though, I have a brother who is an artist and went to college for video game designing and such, so he and I came up with the idea for my cover and he sat down and sketched it out for me, right before my eyes! I was very pleased, and will no doubt be using him for my next novel, short story or novella!
Who are your five favorite authors, and why?
Maya Banks, because I own every single book she has written, literally, and her stories have so much passion and the characters are so easily loved.
Shayla Black because I also own every book she has written and though I haven't read them all, the ones that I have read have been extremely powerful. I love a book that can make you connect with the characters, and Shayla has nailed it on the head every time.
Cynthia Eden, because I own several of her books, and though I don't read very much paranormal, her books are the most believable when it comes to that genre.
Olivia Cunning because her sex scenes are incredible and the men in her Sinners on Tour and Sole Regret novels sound like the sexiest men you could ever encounter!
Fifth place would have to be a tie between Megan Hart and Shannon McKenna.. Megan writes novels that are so emotionally involved and make you feel everything that the character is feeling. Whether they are happy, sad, angry, etc... Shannon's writing is what inspires the suspense side of my own writing. I love her McCloud brother series and recently purchased the entire series, though I have only read the first three.
Over the last two months I have purchased over twenty novels by these six authors, completing the series of each Author so that I have plenty of reading material in the near future.
When did you first start writing?
I wrote my first novel when I was sixteen. It was called "The Haunted Vacation" and it was really poorly written and cheesy, but I was only sixteen. I actually still have t written in a notebook in one of my desk drawers and pull it out every so often to laugh at it. I was only sixteen, still a virgin, so of course it didn't have any steamy scenes that I could have gotten in trouble for, though there were a few scenes I wrote about the leading female character which was nineteen making out with the leading male character which was twenty. Looking back, I realize that any 19 and 20 year old man and woman in the situation the characters were in would have done a lot more than what I had written! Especially compared to the novels I write now.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Being able to escape to a whole new world...a world that I get to create and can make anything I want to happen. I love to pretend that I am the characters in my books... it makes it a lot better!
What are you working on next?
Currently I am working on the second book in the Small Town Harlots series, as well as a few short story series and a mini-series! A lot of projects going on, but I am enjoying every bit of it!
Who are your favorite authors?
Wow... there are a lot. Maya Banks, Shayla Black, Cynthia Eden, Shannon McKenna and Megan Hart...to name a few. EBook authors would be Coyote Rose, Jade K. Scott, Sara Sweet...there are so many more that I just love to read!
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My kids and making them happy as much as I can each and every day, as well as my passion for creating new worlds and people who live in them!
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
If I am not writing, then nearly every second is spent with my 2 sons. They take up most of my time in fact, but I don't mind because they're the reason I do what I do everyday. I love them more than life.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
By going to SmashWords and Barnes&Noble...also I check out the "End Matter" to each eBook I read to see who else is out there that I haven't discovered yet!
What is your writing process?
Oh gosh...first I get out my notebook and pen and I write down every detail of every character in my book. I write their entire back story, then I do a summary of each chapter, that way when I'm typing, I wont get lost and I really just have to fill in the detail. it's such a long process, but I always do the extra work and plenty of research because its the small details that are easy to mess up. I cant stand to read a short story or novel, and see the author mess up on something as simple as where someone was born, then at another part of the novel they mention that the character was born somewhere completely different..that's just an example. It really irks me, so I try my best not to overlook any single detail. Its an OCD of mine I suppose.
What do you read for pleasure?
Pretty much the same material that I write. Erotica, Romance, Suspense, Paranormal Romance is okay too.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I have my forever faithful Nook...it's been through some tough times, but it does the job.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
Wow, I have way more than five, but to name a few are; Fifty Shades of Grey (of course) The Breathless Trilogy by Maya Banks, The Sweet Series by Maya Banks, and I am currently reading her Surrender trilogy as well as Shayla Black's Masters of Ménage series. There are just too many to name...I love them all and I really can't pick a favorite!
Describe your desk
It's completely covered in notebooks, pens, sticky notes and I have folders everywhere with notes for each of my stories and novels. I have post-its EVERYWHERE! But I leave it messy because I know exactly where everything is!
