Friday 5: Jenna Ives

Please welcome Jenna Ives to the blog today. Thanks for joining us, Jenna!

What kind of books do you read for fun?
I write contemporary and futuristic erotic romances, but I love Veronica Roth’s Divergent trilogy and Marie Lu’s Legend series (I realllly wish those would be made into movies)! And, of course, the Hunger Games books. So does that make me a dystopian fan?

What’s the one thing you can’t live without?
A bottle of champagne in my refrigerator. If I have unexpected company drop by, they’re always impressed!

If a genie granted you three wishes, what would they be?
For enough money to comfortably pursue my dreams (write more books, travel the world & paint Chinese watercolors), for health that I could enjoy those dreams, and for three more wishes!

What is best writing advice you can give?
Writing is hard. The secret is to sit yourself in the computer chair and just write. It’s one thing to want to write a novel, but it’s another thing to have the dedication to actually do it. Perseverance is almost more important than talent.

Can you share a little about your current release with us?
My story Snow White And Her Seven Lovers is a modern-day erotic fairy tale, and the title says it all. It was the 2013 International Digital Award-winner in the Erotica Short category!


Here’s the blurb:
What’s a girl to do when she wakes up poisoned in the ER and finds that she’s lost her memory, her family, and very nearly her life?

That was me. Three months ago. With no identity, no money, and nowhere to go on the day I was discharged from the hospital, I gratefully accepted my gorgeous ER doctor’s offer to move in with him and his equally gorgeous six friends – the ones who’d found me unconscious in an apple orchard. My plan was to stay until my memory returned, and I could figure out who I was and if someone really had tried to kill me.

Together with Doc, these were an amazingly diverse bunch of guys, but there was something about each of them that attracted me powerfully enough to want to explore it. The policeman with his clever handcuffs. The cunningly linguistic librarian. The disciplinarian teacher. The virgin computer whiz who loved to play sex games. The engineer who created shotgun orgasms. The wildly imaginative baker.

Becoming intimate with these seven men completed me in ways I suspected discovering my name never would. That is, until the fateful day a man showed up claiming to be my fiancé…
