I am excited to introduce you to a wonderful woman who writes in the romance/ erotica genre. Meet my kith, Rebekah Jonesy!
Rebekah Jonesy is a work from home wife. A voracious reader, she decided it was time she made her own contributions. She has been writing for most of her life but only started publishing in 2014. Her books are contemporary romance with a variety of kinks thrown in. Understanding that human sexuality is as complex as the people are, she strives to show the reality of love as her characters work to find their happily ever after. Outside of the literary world, she is a mad scientist cook, gardener, Jill of all trades, and military spouse.
Hello Rebekah-kith, welcome to An Angell’s Life, finally! What is the current book you are promoting?
Hello, my lovely Angell-kith. I’m here today to talk about my most recently published book. It’s the second in a trilogy about a lovely, Southern gentleman named Stuart. He also happens to be super rich, an alpha male, a sadist Dominant, and a Boy Scout. The title of the book is Unacceptable. I choose this title because in this book Leslie, the main female character, struggles to learn what it means to be a dominant and what it means to be a submissive. She only has a vague, warped idea of what that means from reading dirty novels like mine. At the same time she’s trying to figure out how to date again as a newly single mom, and what it means to have a boyfriend for the first time since college. Stuart is also trying to figure out how to date a single mom, while running his businesses, and abiding by Leslie’s sense of public decorum. Both of them have to figure out what’s acceptable and what’s unacceptable, in public and in private.
Love it! Who is your favorite character in your book and why?
In this book my favorite character is Leslie. She’s trying so hard to do what’s right for everyone. And she’s studying and trying and keeps getting in her own way. But she’s aware enough to call herself out for her bad behavior too. And the whole time she’s worried about her daughter and willing to sacrifice everything to keep her daughter happy.
I love good mamas! What is your next project?
I am actually working on a few right now. I am finishing up the third book to this trilogy, which will also give a look at some characters from past books. And I am starting a new series about one of the kinkier, less inhibited characters. I’ve also coauthored another book which is in the final editing/rewrite stages and will come out soon. And then there’s the movies I am script editing. One is done and looking for funding, the other I will finish editing next week. And I just picked up a writing gig with OWS as well. So I’m all over the place for the next month or so.
Ha, ha, I totally feel you on that. Where do you come up with your stories?
Amusingly enough, from my previous stories. I wrote my first book about Mandy and Kurt. There were a lot of secondary characters in those books. And each of those characters spoke to me, wanting to have their own happily ever afters. So Bran/Brandy got her story. Then Laura/Candy got hers. So on and so on, spreading out from there over time. Then finally Stuart was in a secure enough spot/job that he could start thinking about settling down too, so it was time for his Once Upon a Time.
What is one great lesson you have learned as a writer?
Everyone has their own story. But more than that, they have several stories. Life isn’t just one story. And happily ever after has to be worked for, even after you find your love. Because your story doesn’t end there, and it impacts other’s stories as well.
The smartest thing I’ve ever heard about romance, ever! What is your favorite word?
Dork. It’s the giant, hidden dick that most people never think about or even know it’s in their vocabulary.
Ha, ha, of course that’s your favorite word! Thank you for joining us, Rebekah-kith (Those of you who know Rebekah-kith and I might have noticed the new thing we’ve been doing the last couple of weeks… Adding Kith to each other’s names. This is how geeky things can get when you have two of the geekiest geek-girls hanging out at obscene hours of the night. We decide to bring back Kith, as in “kith and kin” So, wanna be as geeky as us? Join the Geek Street squad and earn your “Kith” status! We’re word nerds, embrace it!)
