Please give a warm welcome to wife and husband authors Jules and Hunter
Tell us about yourselves…
My husband Hunter and I have been together for 21 years, but only began writing in 2019. We live in Orange County, California. We spend a lot of time traveling, but when we’re home you can find us at the beach. I’m a coffee addict and Hunter is an adrenaline addict.
Have you always wanted to become an author?
Jules: I have always wanted to be a writer, but never had the guts to get serious about it until an author I fangirl over and respect very much suggested I give it a go.
Hunter: I have never thought about becoming a writer. I got into it as something for Jules and I to do together. She’s my best friend and everything is so much more fun together. Yeah, Jules totally paid me to say that last part. ;). Lmao
What was your inspiration for your current book?
We started writing anthologies and did one–The Devil’s Playground– with BBB Publishings about a paranormal whorehouse and ended up loving our first paranormal manuscript so much that we had to turn it into a full length novel.
What are you working on now?
Apartment 29. Our first paranormal RH stand alone HEA romance. It releases on July 24th. We’re learning a lot about paranormal writing and hope readers love Jade’s story as much as we do.
Do you have any quirks while working?
Jules: When writing during the day, I snack on chewy sweetarts, and drink coffee like it’s a youth tonic. When writing at night I’m either sipping a Seven & Seven or shooting tequila. Not a lot, just enough to loosen me up. It helps me let go and really get into the multiple characters we role-playing.
Hunter: I don’t have any quirks when writing, however I’m all over our home office role-playing each character and moving naturally while Jules describes what I’m doing and types up the dialogue I’m spitting out.
What are your hopes for the future?
Jules: I hope to find out Vampires are real and super cool, become one and NEVER die! (What? A girl can dream can’t she?) Aaand I would really like to know that at least one of our stories will take a reader through all the emotions to end with them feeling like they got everything from the story they wanted and a few things they didn’t expect and being so full of different emotions that they throw their kindle saying “Jules Hunter sucks! I can’t wait for their next book.”
Hunter: I hope that we continue to learn to be better writers and put out amazing stories.
Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?
Jules: Absolutely find at least one PA you mesh well with and make sure they are knowledgeable about the writing world because they will 100 percent be your saviour, and will help you navigate the part of writing that takes you away from the actual writing.
Hunter: What Jules said. Get a PA that’s knowledgeable and then listen to them! You will also do well to find an editor you trust. Jules and I don’t know what we would do without our PA’s and our fantastic editing team. Surround yourself with a great team and there’s nothing you can’t do.
Do you have anything to say to your followers?
We flove each one of you. Thank you all for your support, advice, the laughs, and reviews. And here’s the thing with reviews. We love them. Good or bad, we appreciate the good reviews and consider the bad reviews as a way to become better writers. We don’t care if they’re one star as long as they’re honest.
