Interview with Jessica Rosella

What motivated you to become an Erotics Romance author?
Well for the writing part I have always been interested in writing just because of the way I could determine my characters' futures, who they were and I could communicate with my readers through my characters. But the Erotic romance didn't come until later, when I realized I was a hopeless romantic.
My first romance story was an eye opener but gave me boundaries. So I decided to go a bit deeper, which is when I fell on the deeper and most forbidden side of romance.
When I started writing I instantly fell in love with it, because I had no boundaries. My mind could drive me anywhere and I could write anything I could imagine, and no one would judge my writing or complained about it being too much.
Because in world of erotic romance, the new experiences and adventures never cease. It's never the same thing, again and again. And you never know what might come next.
That attracted me. And so here I am, writing Erotic Romance.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords has played a huge part in my debut as an author. It has helped me by giving me the tools necessary to advance in doing what I love. And at an extremely affordable rate. Smashwords had given me the hope of showing the world my work when I thought there was no way I could make it.
So yeah, it has, and still is aiding me tremendously.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The Greatest Joy of writing is the freedom writing gives me in going places I have never been before. In exploring new things I never though even existed. How writing helps me expand beyond my mere existence and give me a voice that the whole world could here.
The greatest joy of writing, for me, is also the way I get to speak to readers, to inspire them and encourage them through my writing, my characters and their actions.
What do your fans mean to you?
To me, my fans mean more than I ever thought possible. They are like a personal river of constant support, inspiration and joy. They push me to do better, and think of new ways to keep them interested and entertained.
When I don't have anyone to tell me anything, or I'm experiencing writer's block, I could just reach out and instantly find my inspiration through them and their words. Good or bad.
What are you working on next?
I'm working on s thriller trilogy. With some special futuristic, government and CIA twists involved. Including erotic romance between hero and hereon, of course. I don't know anything for sure, It's just a draft, but it's looking better by the minute.
Who is a short list of your favorite authors?
That one's a long list, but I'll try my best. My favorite author's list (in no particular order at all) includes:
Cynthia Eden, Tara Sue Me, Erin McCarthy, Maya Banks, Shayla Black, Sylvia day, Lexi Black, Lauren Oliver, Jill Shalvis, Jennifer E. Smith, Kerrelyn Sparks, Terry Spear, Lauren Dane, Thea Devine, Susan Elizabeth Philips, Amanda Quick, Julia Quinn, J.J. Murray, Karen Kelley, Sandra Hill, Megan Hart, Susan Fox.
That's the shortest list I have.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Weirdly, it's the work I have to do. Things I have to finish for the day. For example, my writing,reading and my small business Cover For Romantics, where I design book covers for self Published authors.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I spend my time reading, designing covers, plotting in my head, watching a movie.
How do you discover the books you read?
I usually refer to goodreads or my local library.
What is your writing process?
I don't have a particular set of steps. Sometime the story just pops in my head as I listen to music, watch a soap opera or viewing pictures on Pinterest or anywhere and start plotting it right away. Other times(rarely) I have to work and think about a plausible story and characters.
I start writing the story immediately, and see where it takes me.
My stories are like a movie to me. Even though I'm the one writing it, I stil feel as though I don't know the whole story until I write that, THE END.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes. I wrote a short romance story in the summer when I had nothing, but a dinosaur computer and its outdated office suit. It a story of love between a CIA agent and a Millionaire's daughter, who's parents dies and leave the security of they're daughter in his hands. He's always watched her from afar, until they died.
I called it, I Need a Savior.
