Author Jan Romes #interview @JanRomes

Please give a warm welcome to Jan Romes

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Helle, I think I’ve always wanted to be an author, although I didn’t acknowledge it to myself or to anyone else until later in life. Words stir emotion in me. That’s why I love to read books and poetry, and memorize music lyrics. It’s also why I enjoy writing so much. I’m not the world’s best writer, but it sure is fun taking a small idea and spinning a story around it.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

My current series is the Coffee and Dessert – a sweet matchmaking series. A year ago, while on an airplane headed to Texas to visit my daughter, I flipped through the airline’s monthly magazine. In it was an advertisement for a matchmaking service for busy professionals. I decided when I was finished writing the last book in my Wine and Sweat Pants Series, I would write a series with the idea of matchmaking in mind. My series, however, would include anyone (not just professionals) who was looking for love and didn’t want to go the online route. My setting for this series is a new coffee shop in Key West called Coffee and Dessert.

What are you working on now?

With the first book in the Coffee and Dessert Series now published (Meg and Riley’s story), I am working on book two (Danna and Marvin’s story). 

Do you have any quirks while working?

I don’t know if having a cup of coffee in front of me is a quirk, but I can’t seem to write without one. Some writers love background music. I can’t do the music thing because I’d be singing along. I need absolute quiet.

What are your hopes for the future?

To finish my latest 4-book series and then possibly write another Christmas-themed story.

Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?

I’d tell new authors to listen to what seasoned authors have to say about the process, but only use the advice as a guide. Every writer’s journey is different. What works for one, won’t necessarily work for another. There are so many fish in the writing sea, yet don’t be shy. Jump in and swim with the rest of us.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

I absolutely do, Helle. I’d like to thank my readers and express how humbled I am that they read my work.

Tell us a bit about yourself…

I love birdwatching, gardening, and exercise. Favorite drink is black coffee, Sumatra origin preferred.



Have you always wanted to become an author?

Nope, mostly because I just didn’t think about it. Truth is though I had been telling stories since I was a little kiddy, so I suppose the desire was always there waiting for me.



What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

So I thought it would be a wonderfully cool idea to mix the familiar with the horrifying, and thought it would be awesome to have one’s entire worldview threatened by a situation that they find themselves alone in. That’s the desire behind Clare in Substation 7: she’s casting herself into the abyss of a truth that may not want her.



What are you working on now?

A Halloween special short story. You can find it on when it’s done!



Do you have any quirks while writing?

Not many, though I do love drinking huge amounts of coffee while I write- it keeps me comfortable while I work 😛



What are your hopes for the future?




Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?

Read as many articles as you can get your hands on. Join facebook groups that have authors in them and pick up as much as you can. Their years of experience will put you on the fast-track to success.



Do you have anything to say to your readers?

I love you all!

Doris is on tour.


I am excited today to have Doris on the blog with a spot of advice, to show you just what all the fuss is about and just who Doris is. Don’t be afraid, she doesn’t bite and it has been proven beyond scientific fact she has no teeth, but her wit is sharp and she does tend to rip into you if you stray away from being true to yourself.

With Valentine’s Day behind us and the lonely hearts club back to drinking wine from a box or perhaps, hitting the clubs again, there are still a lot of gals trying to figure out a way to keep their dignity intact and still find a man who excites them and will make them happy throughout their lives…or at least have a serious and stable relationship with! Maybe even those whose glitterific relationship has lost some of it’s shine needs a bit of a boost!

Are you game? We also will be having a live interview with the Cabin Goddess, Kriss (she is also one of the head Fairies here), and a central Facebook event page where you can post questions for Doris throughout the tour, get updates and links during the tour and ask more info on the novella! Everyone in the know has been itching to see this book get everywhere and in have people join them in reading it and laughing just as hard as they did! You won’t even need cream afterwards.. perhaps a glass of wine and a new boyfriend, but not any cream!


Me: Dear Doris, what is your favourite hobby?

Doris: I love to relax on the couch and listen to the television. I prefer family dramas because I can’t see the television, so action movies aren’t really suitable. Something you humans don’t know is that the penises and vaginas of the characters on television talk too. They like to get in on the action and will say things to make fun of what’s going on upstairs, or they act too, making it even more exciting.


My review

Talking vaginas, yes you heard me right. Now you might think this an X-rated book or extremely naughty, well it is a tiny bit naughty, but in no way X-rated.

It is about Jemma who is single and desperately trying to find the right one while dealing with friends and family, some of which you love and some you do not.

In between looking for prince charming in nightclubs, we get an inside view, or you might say a down under view of how life is for Jemma’s vagina named Doris and her vagina friends. I’m still trying to recover from laughing my butt of (I wish), the description of the troubles poor Doris goes through is absolutely hilarious.

This is a well-written story that you can’t stop reading once you have begun, so hurry up and get your copy.

A quote I love:
Doris was reminded of the movie Alien: in the space between a woman’s legs, no one can hear you scream…

Viva la Vadgeventures!


Close Call: A Doris & Jemma Vadgeventure

Close-Call-3D-450Close Call is the first instalment of “A Doris & Jemma Vageventure” series.

Think Bridget Jones Diary and The Vagina Monologues.

Twenty-two-year-old Jemma can’t seem to get her life in order. Her track record with men stinks, she constantly worries about getting fat and ending up a spinster at thirty. And to top it off, she has to be a bridesmaid at her most-hated cousin’s wedding. She feels like her life is over, until Doris decides to help out. Who’s Doris? Doris is Jemma’s vagina and she thinks more of Jemma than her own brain does. Doris is on a mission to save Jemma from herself, but is the task too much for one vagina to handle?

Meet Eloise March aka Eloise March

Dionne Lister - 2

Eloise March is a woman who laughs at her own jokes, swears way too much and breaks any new diet by lunchtime on the day she starts. She believes in women’s equality, and all equality for that matter, and hopes the things she writes touch people in a positive way, and make them think about how they can create a better society for themselves and others.

In her spare time, she enjoys living as her alter ego, Dionne Lister — a suspense and YA fantasy author who is way too embarrassed to talk about vaginas. She likes spending time as Dionne because Dionne has an awesome family, wonderful friends and a cat called Lily, oh, and she has great hair.

If you’re looking for Eloise, or any information about future books in the Doris & Jemma Vadgeventure series, you can visit Dionne’s website, where Eloise has been lucky enough to get her own page If you’re looking for a chat, you can find Ms. March on Twitter.
