GUEST: Jacqueline Paige

Today my guest is the very talented Jacqueline Paige. First a quick interview with the lovely author, then you can check out her wonderful book, Salvation:

How long have you been writing?

I have only been seriously writing since 2005. By seriously I mean when I first decided I should try to get something published.

How long have you been a published author?

My first book was published by Amira Press in August of 2009. Since then it has been a world of non-stop editing and writing.

What titles do you have available?

Presently I have three available at Amira Press; Behind the Mask, In Our Dream and From a Dream. I also have Mystic Perceptions at Class Act Books and Salvation at Eternal Press.

Do you have any new titles coming soon?

I’ve just survived the whirlwind of having two books come out in the last two months, so I’m looking forward to a short break before my next one comes out in February. Whiskey Creek Press will be releasing Twice Cursed.

What is your favourite genre and why?

Paranormal is my most favourite. It doesn’t matter if it’s Romance, suspense, dark, fantasy – I just love to step into a world filled with paranormal aspects and to be able to leave the realities of not being able to shift, transform and all the other cool things behind for a few hundred pages at a time.

What, to you, is the most exciting part of the writing process?

For me it’s when the characters that started as names and descriptions come to life. When they start to disagree with my plot and find their own voice, it’s very exciting for me. I never know where they are going to take me.

If you could co-author a book with anyone, who would you choose and why?

Oh, that’s a hard one to narrow down. I would definitely like to work with something that was better in areas of writing then I am. I don’t do long descriptive passages very well, I’m too impatient. I can think of several NYT authors that do that amazingly, Nora Roberts, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Christine Feehan. Although what I could contribute with those writers I have no idea, their creativity is several notches above my own. J

Where can readers find you on the web?


SALVATION: Two centuries of not existing is about to change...


Lost in a place between living and dying, confined to roam endlessly over the same grounds for all eternity and cursed to never be seen again, Jareth wanders through time alone and longing for the sea once more. When he realizes there is one thing he yearns for more than he ever did the sea, he is tossed into a world he is unfamiliar with.

Stuck with a life that never goes her way, Miranda is determined to get at least one thing she wants. When that one thing turns out to be a sexy pirate that lived over two hundred years ago, she finds herself faced with more than one challenge to have him.

Can they break the curse and be together?


He walked with a heavy foot, wishing his boot were real enough to pound on the floor. He was on the other side of the room before he looked back at her. “I have gone on alone and completely adrift for so many years at a time...the loneliness consumed me, leaving me wanting to howl as a wounded beast does.” He waved a hand in frustration. “Now, after all I have suffered through, I find I am able to be heard when I speak, to be seen by other eyes, and I have to fight every breath with the way I burn for you.” He walked in large strides closer to her. “I take notice of your every movement, your every breath, and I cannot even touch you one time!”

Miranda stood there, her eyes huge and locked to his. “I’m...I...I feel the same way, Jareth.” She motioned to the monitor. “I’m trying, really I am.”

He hissed out a breath. “I did not imply otherwise.” He looked down into her brown eyes and wished again he had the strength to turn from them. He could tell untruths to himself for the reasons he was here with her, but he could not tell them to her. “I am sorry, little one. I am not of much assistance when I spend all my moments with you looking and...” He sighed.

“And?” she whispered.

His eyes searched hers. “Longing, wanting, craving...” He looked down her body before moving back to her eyes. “The clothes you wear show me how you are shaped beneath, and yet I am still disturbed to absolute distraction with the images inside of my own head that your appealing shape gives to me.”

She tilted her head and looked up at him, her cheeks flushed and eyes soft. “Would you like to see more?”

“Yes,” he hissed as his mind screamed no. How could he put himself through the torment of seeing what he desired more than life and yet not touch, not taste?

  1. Thanks so much for being here today, Jacqueline!! I'm hoping some of my regular visitors will comment and check out your book!!

    Hugs and Blessings,

  2. That would be great - in the mean time I've been exploring your blog and all of your books.
    You have some great stuff here!

  3. Thank you, Jacqueline!! I never get bored, if nothing else!! Will see if I can stir up the faithful now and get a few people over here to talk to you!!


  4. Hey Jacqueline - just wanted to say I enjoyed your interview. Paranormal has always been my favorite reading, and your synopsis definitely leaves me wanting more. Good luck with your books.

  5. Thanks Missy.
    What part of paranormal does it for you? I just love the fact that there are no limits to what can happen.

  6. I'm really into shapeshifters. There's just something so erotic about a strong, handsome virile man turning into a fierce beast. It never works for me the other way - human male and shapeshifter female - has to be a male shapeshifter and I'm partial to wolves :)

  7. Oh, I have to agree with you there!

    Ironically I am just polishing up my very first shifter story - Animal Heart ... and wolf was my animal of choice for this one.

  8. Hi, hope the blog tour is going well for you. Love paranormal as well. Reg life is enough to handle, like the escape & fantasy. It sounds like you are and are going to be one busy girl with everything you have coming out. Good Luck!


  9. Thanks Victoria.

    I like busy, it keeps me out of trouble :)


Thank you for stopping by and sharing your thoughts.
