Interview with J.C. Wells

1. Welcome,
J.C. Wells. For those who might not be familiar with you, would you be a dear
and tell the readers a little about yourself? How did you get your start in the
writing business?
(JC) Sure thing! Well, I’m originally from good
‘ol California, home of the sunshine! (Which is currently under a cover of
clouds, but don’t tell anyone I told you that.) I think I remember getting my
start in the writing field on cocktail napkins actually. When I was a kid, I
used to steal them from my dad or mom and write little lyrics on them, just
some one-liners or so, then cover them up with smiley faces and those really
cool S drawing you did when you were a kid because everyone did them and you
felt like the BOMB because you figured them out all on your own. (Oh I know.
You did them too, don’t lie.) Anyway, when I got into high school, I started
with poetry and that was cool but it didn’t do anything for me. I wanted to
write books. So, I just…did. Now, I have some short stories published with Horny
Devil Publishing and am working on getting the bigger pieces out there as well.
2.  All writers fear
the dreaded “block”. Please tell us how you handle it.
(JC) Oh my god, I’m the
worst!! I once had writers block for a year and a half. I won’t even deny it. A
year and a half!! How did I handle it? I wrote something else. And another. And
another. And then FINALLY, I had the want to write the piece I had put aside. I
feel like you just have to let go of the frustration and work on something
else. Sooner or later, could be five days or five years, you’ll know exactly
what comes next.
3. Contrary to what some people envision about a romance
writer’s life, it’s not all glitz and glam. Well not for the majority of us.
With that bubble sadly busted, when you’re not writing, how to do you spend
your time?
(JC) “Welcome to Best Buy!
Can I help you find anything in the gaming department?” Yeah, I say that a
hundred times a day, 32 hours a week. I also go to grad school for Creative
Writing in CT, intern for a publishing house, and am a production manager for a
literary magazine called Mason’s Road. Isn’t that all just so exciting?!
4. I know many writers, such as Dirk and myself, keep their
pastime/career a secret. Do those close to you know you write? If so, what are
their thoughts?
(JC) Yeah they know. I
don’t hide what I do. My friends and family are all supportive but many of them
won’t pick up my M/M erotic shorts…or if they have, they haven’t told me. They
love that I am creative and always eager to come up with new ideas. My mom is
actually my guinee pig. I will read to her what I’m working on and if she says
“yay!” then I submit. If she’s torn, I rework.
5. Will you share with us your all time favorite authors? If
you’re like me, it’s a long list so give us your top ten.
1. JR Ward
2. Sherrilyn Kenyon
3. Christine Feehan
4. Kerrelyn Sparks
5. Gena Showalter
6. Shakespeare
7. Jeaniene Frost
8.  Lynsay Sands
9. Eva LeNoir
10. Alex Cook
6. If you could choose one book to go to the big screen,
yours or otherwise, which book would you choose and whom would you love see
casted in the parts?
(JC)  I’d like to see JR
Ward’s series on the big screen. I’m not sure who I would cast as who but I
feel like some of the brothers/bastards would consist of Vin Diesel, Hugh
Jackman, The Rock, Wentworth Miller, Jason Statham, and Brad Pitt maybe.
7. Would you care to tell us what you’re working on now?
That is if it’s not top-secret information. If so, just whisper it in my ear. I
swear it’ll go no further.
(JC) Haha! I am working on
many things. Currently, I just finished and submitted the first of a new
comedy/erotic series called Hells Bells. I have also sent in book 3 of my Matik
Masters. I am now focusing on book 4, the final book, of the Matik Masters, as
well as writing an erotic short with my close friend/author Eva LeNoir.
8. Where can we find your stories and is there a particular
reading order?

(JC) I am on Amazon, Barnes
and Noble, Kobo Books, All Romance E-books, and Smashwords. For the Matik
Master series, it has an order: Rayce, Enrick, Sorth, Petar, but Sorth and
Petar are still in the works and coming. Double or Nothing is the first of
another series I am writing.

9. Would you please share how your present and future fans

10. Before we conclude this enlightening interview, do you
have anything else you’d like to share? The stage is all yours.
(JC) I want to welcome all future and current fans
to contact me. I love talking with my fans and getting to know them, learning
what they love about my writing, and more. For those who have asked, I am
currently working on some merch, if possible, as well as trying to figure out
if I could attend a conference at some point in the future. Please keep reading
and supporting us small authors. It is because of you that we are here and
continue to write.
Wrap-up
There you have it, ladies and gents. I want to again thank J.C.
