Meet my wonderful friend Jewel Adams, President-elect of URWA and writer of umpteen wonderful romantic gems.
What got you writing, Jewel?
How can we get to these lovely stories?
What or who inspires you?
What do you like to do when you aren't slaving away at the keyboard?
If there was one principle you had to make a stand on--one do-or-die idea, what would it be?
In what direction do you see yourself heading in the future?
If you had to switch genres, which one would you choose and why?
Do you have a favorite munchy or music genre you like to listen to while you write?
I'm so impressed with the way you handle your craft. Where did you get your ideas for marketing and what is your favorite tip?
I'm always looking for new ways to market and I have come across some great ones. But the marketing I've had the most success with is a little company called Wattpad.com. And it really isn't a little company, it's a massive online social network for both published as aspiring authors and readers. I've gotten to know people from all over the world simply by posting my stories as free reads. With millions of readers logging on daily, I have been blessed to garner a large fan base, and most of my sales come from those fans.
If you can think of a great question I've missed, let me have it...:o)

Free-spirited Capri Harris has always embraced life to the fullest, but a major health trial brings unexpected changes and her outlook shifts, leaving her with doubts of her worth to any man.
Like the force of a hurricane, Jagger Colby enters Capri's life, weakening her resolve and shaking the walls of self-preservation she has tried so hard to build around her heart.
But Capri knows that once Jagger discovers the truth about her, he will walk away and never look back.
When words mean everything, say what you need to say.
Capri, a pretty part American Indian, part Jamacan 20 year old has just found out she has ovarian cancer and has to have a hysterectomy. Because of this she doesn't feel any man will love her because she cannot have children. She begins to doubt her self-worth as a woman and doesn't understand unconditional love.
Seth is Capri's older brother and loves Capri to the point that Capri refers to him as a mother hen. He also introduces Jagger to Capri.
Ahhh, then there's the handsome Jagger Colby-grey eyes, dark wavy hair, muscular, 30 years old. The kind of man any woman would be crazy not to fall for. Those grey eyes seem to be only for Capri.
Then to make it interesting and humuorous we have the mischievous set of twins, a drunk cow, and adults playing pranks.
I love this new novellett by J. Adams. It is full of clean romance, fun and a story of unconditional love. It is true what they say "The true experience of love comes from within the self". This is what Capri has to learn. Will she?
I recommend this book for young adults and older.
About the Author
J. (Jewel) Adams stays crazy busy with her family and writing. She has written several books in different genres and is also a motivational speaker to both youth and adult audiences. She home schools her four kids that are still at home, and between that and conjuring up new ideas for her books, her brain is completely fried most of the time. She and her husband Sean are the parents of eight children, which means they are both losing hair, but hey, that's what Rogaine is for, right? In her spare time (when she has any) she likes to curl up with a good book and a healthy stash of orange Tic Tacs. She and her family reside in Utah.
Jewel loves hearing from her fans, so if you would like to contact her to tell her how much you love her books or give her sympathy for the fried brain, or suggestions for the hair loss problem (for her husband, of course) contact her firstname.lastname@example.org
