Author Spotlight: Interview with Meghan Quinn and more!

I'm very happy to spotlight author Meghan Quinn on the blog today.  I was able to ask her some questions in regards to her latest release, The Virgin Romance Novelist, which is a must read for romantic comedy lovers and I think for everyone in general.

Meghan is quite a prolific writer.  She's written and published twelve books in five series and one standalone in about two years.  That's amazing!  Having discovered her books, I've come to love them for the laughs and drama. Since I read her first book last year, I've read seven others. Today's spotlight is on the books and series I've read.

Here's her latest release.


Her bosom heaved at an alarming rate as his rough hand found its way down to her soft, yet wiry briar patch... 

Can you say briar patch in a romance novel? What about meat sword? That’s what it is…a meat sword, right, all meaty and sword like, slaying through the inner dungeons of a woman’s dark desires. What about breasts? Do bosoms really heave? 

God, I have no idea what happens when private parts touch. 

I’m a virgin trying to write a romance novel and can’t seem to write past a sex scene thanks to my lack of experience. 

My two best friends encourage me to drop the pen for a while and gain some real life practice through multiple dating facets such as blind dates, online profiles, and random hookups. 

But losing my virginity is proving to be tougher than expected…

Author Interview

1. What inspired you to write this particular story?
This was a book idea I actually came up with within the first few months I started writing but didn’t touch it until now. When I first started writing, I was so damn nervous about writing a sex scene that I thought, if I was this nervous writing a sex scene, how would a virgin feel? The story kind of developed after that.

2. Did you laugh out loud while you were writing it?
Not when I was writing the book because I'm in the zone and just letting things pour out of me but when I was EDITING, oh God, I giggled way too much and thought to myself, "where the hell did that come from?" Some of the thoughts running through my mind at the time of writing was quite disturbing. 

3. What was the name of the last 5 star book you read?I feel like I'm flipping through my "Kindle Rolodex" right now, trying to figure out what the hell I've read. There are so many good ones. Recently, J.B. Salsbury's fighting series, Alessandra Torre's Sex Love Repeat and Ryan Ringbloom's Sex Blogs, Reality. All fantastic!

4. What do you do to get yourself in the writing mood?Music. I have a playlist for each book and I will listen to it on repeat until I want to rip my ears off. It gets to the point that I associate each song with a book I'm writing that when a particular song comes on the radio, I break out in a sweat because I don't have my computer in front of me to write. 

5. What's your favorite junk food?
Donuts and Peanut Butter!!!! Oh my lord, I could use a donut right now! 

6. How long does it take on average for you to write a book?
About a month and a half, depending on my schedule. I still have a full-time job so I have to find time after work to write, it can be difficult at times. It took my three weeks to write The Virgin Romance Novelist. I've been sitting on that one for awhile. 

7. What WIPs  (works in progress) do you have?
I actually have two books complete and waiting to release which I can't wait for all of you to read. I am currently working on Kace's story (for you Jett Girl fans, yes, Kace will get a story) and I'm also working on a special proposal with my agent which I'm very excited about!

8. Anything you'd like readers to know?
 I couldn't do what I do without all of your support, so thank you. I hope that if anything, I am entertaining and can help you escape reality for a few seconds whether it be from my books, from my embarrassing videos or my weird as hell questions on Facebook. Thank you for giving this old bag of bones a chance!

9. Are any of the scenes in this book based on events in real life?
Yup, a few. Probably the most embarrassing one is when she hangs out with the Alpha male in the book. If you read The Virgin Romance Novelist, you will know what I'm talking about. Yikes!!!

10. Which character in this novel do you relate to most, and why? Rosie for sure. Her thoughts, her actions, the way she speaks at times, they were so beyond familiar that it was frightening when I was re-reading.

Book 1

The only people he trusts are his band mates from Shattered Souls and he wants to keep it that way. His life was completely under control and simple until he heard the voice of Maisy Madison filter through The Tavern speakers.

One lucky night, Shattered Souls, the most popular band in the country, decides to show up at their little concert and luckily signs them on the spot. But the arena venues and massive amount of fans isn’t what has Maisy shaking in her heels. It’s the deep baritone voice of Rook Tyler that has haunted her dreams for years which has her wondering if she can actually go through with the tour.
