Interview with RJ Jones
Hello everyone, please put your hands together and join me in welcoming the wonderful RJ Jones! *claps*
(btw – these questions are being drafted while I’m sleepy so this should be interesting)
Beany: Welcome RJ!
Since I’m writing these questions in the evening, lets skip the tea and coffee. *hands over glass of wine and gets cider for self as we sit in our jammies*
RJ: Wine and PJ’s. Perfect night in. Cheers. 🙂
Beany: The last time you popped in we were celebrating the release of True Blue (Out of the Blue #3) and now we’re celebrating Blueprint (Out of the Blue #4).
So what can you tell us about this story?
RJ: It’s Jet’s story! Finally! You wouldn’t believe the amount of people who have asked me when Jet’s story was coming, and to be honest, I have wanted to write his story as soon as he hit the page in Black & Bluhe. He’s such a lovable yet vulnerable character. *melts I love him hard. Jet finally gets his HEA here but he has to grow first and with his identical twin, Gray always hovering, it’s a bit of a struggle. Okay, it’s a lot of a struggle. Luckily Ethan is the perfect match for Jet. Ethan is stable and dependable with a wealth of patience when it comes to the twins. I hope everyone loves Jet and Ethan as much as I do.
Beany: Last time you said Blueprint was going to be the last book in the series. You also mentioned that a couple more characters have come up but that if you wrote their stories, they wouldn’t be part of the Blue series. Any news about that?
RJ: Not really. It’s still the same answer. I plan on Blueprint to finish the series, but there are a couple of characters (Andy from #3 and #4 and Ian from #4 who you’re yet to meet) who may get together. If they do, and that’s a big if, it will be a spin off.
Beany: Of all the books in the Blue series, which was your favourite to write and which character/s will you miss? And which character was your favourite?
RJ: Jet was my favourite to write. He’s fun and quirky, yet vulnerable. He was an absolute joy to spend some time in his head. I’ll really miss him. Mason runs a close second, even though his story, True Blue, you don’t get his POV, but I enjoyed him regardless. He was a lot of fun.
Beany: Do you think you’ll ever visit the characters again later on? Even for a short story?
RJ: Possibly. I have been thinking about a short Christmas piece, but it won’t be this year.
Beany: So now that Blueprint is done, are there any projects that you’re working on that you can tell us about?
RJ: I’m currently working on the third Love for the Season book, As the Sun Sets, which I plan on releasing early next year. It’s set in Brighton in the UK and features Scott, a paediatric doctor and Rob, a children’s nurse. I won’t give you any more insight yet because it’s nowhere near finished. I’ve also got a short hot ménage in the works with not much plot. That’s been fun to write 🙂
Beany: I think that’s all the questions I have…for now *winks* Thanks for stopping by 🙂
RJ: Thanks, Beans. Can I take the bottle?
Beany: Of course, I bought it specifically for you.
If only building the foundation for a lasting relationship was as easy as drafting the blueprint.
Jet Black doesn’t date. Even if he wanted a man beyond sex, his ever-watchful identical twin scares potential suitors away. Jet lives with his brother, but since Gray fell in love with Kris, Jet feels like a third wheel. Despite their bond, Jet knows he needs to move out and experience life for himself, whether Gray likes it or not.
After his father dies in a boating accident, Ethan Nichols is devastated. As the last survivor of his family, he realizes the need to put down roots. He leaves Australia and returns home to San Francisco and his old architectural firm. But there’s more to building a new life than simply moving house.
Jet and Ethan’s first encounter is brash and anonymous, but when Ethan moves across the hall, their lives become irrevocably linked. Jet is quirky and fun loving, while Ethan is rock steady and dependable. There’s no denying the passionate spark between them.
But Ethan is looking for a more solid foundation than Jet is ready to offer. Until Jet learns to spread his wings and trust Ethan with his darkest secrets, building a life together will be impossible.
**This can be read as a standalone, however it is best enjoyed reading the series in order as side characters play a major role.**
About the Author:
RJ started as a reader and eventually made the progression to reviewing. It wasn’t until two men popped into her thoughts, insisting on telling her their story that she started to write. It started with one scene. A hot and dirty one in the shower.
RJ’s initial thought was if she could write their scene then they’d shut up and allow her to concentrate on other aspects of the day. That shower scene was 3000 words long and three hours of work. But they didn’t shut up. They told her their entire story and she didn’t sleep for days. Sometimes she couldn’t keep up with what they were telling her and she had to keep a notebook by the bed.
Whilst RJ was writing their story a side character decided he needed his story told too. Then other characters followed suit.
You see the problem? If RJ ever wants to sleep again then she needs to write.
RJ is a wife and a mother to two boys. Even her dog is a boy.
She is surrounded by males.
RJ writes emotionally charged, character driven romances. Her guys will always get their HEA, but it will never be easy.
