Interview with Jessica Grayson, Author of The Edge of it All

What can you tell us about your new release, The Edge of it All?

The Edge of it All is a Dragon Shifter Alien Romance. As a Commander in the Terran space program, I never expected to wake up from cryosleep in a cage. When I’m rescued by a fierce Mosauran dragon warrior, I am both grateful and wary. Soran is a Prince of the Empire, and his species is one of the most feared in the galaxy. But the more time we spend together, the more I find myself drawn to him in ways I don’t understand. Especially since he’s working to keep me out of the hands of the A’kai master he rescued me from. The master who believes his species survival depends upon a cure found only in Terran blood. He will stop at nothing to recapture me in the hopes that he can use me to find my home world. I have to find Terra before the A’kai do—the fate of my people hangs in the balance.

What or who inspired you to become an author?

Grief. I was drowning in it. My parents and oldest sister all died unexpectedly a few years ago and I was so depressed I felt dead inside for two years. I still went to work and I didn’t go off the rails or anything, but I was miserable and so sad I didn’t know what to do. One day, I sat down and started writing and I created these characters who had difficult pasts (they’d lost people they love). And I wrote about them finding love with each other and developing that deep bond you have with someone who understands your pain. One of the characters in my stories always happens to be an alien, but…the core of the story…it’s about overcoming grief and hardship to find your soul mate. The person who not only understands that pain but loves the person you have become after going through it.

What’s on your top 5 list for the best books you’ve ever read?

Jane Austen: Pride and Prejudice
Jane Austen: Emma
Charlotte Bronte: Jane Eyre (recognize a pattern here?” 😊
I love Scifi Romance, so I have to also mention: Ruby Dixon: Ice Planet Barbarians and Kate Rudolph: Ruwen

Say you’re the host of a literary talk show. Who would be your first guest? What would you want to ask?

I’d like to talk to Ruby Dixon and ask her about her process. She’s amazing. She’s able to put out like a book a month on top of everything else she does. Granted, I recognize she follows a formula, but who doesn’t? I mean…that’s what “Romancing the Beat” is all about. 😊 Her books are great because she writes characters that you actually remember and care about beyond reading the books.

What’s your favorite thing about writing?

The creative process of sitting down and typing out the first draft and then discovering something about your character that you never knew before. It’s amazing how things like that will just open up who plot arcs, etc.

What is a typical day like for you?

I’m a healthcare provider, so I work the regular 8 to 5 weekdays. But I try to writing during lunch and when I get home, I write every chance I get.

What scene in The Edge of it All was your favorite to write?

The part where they are looking at the stars and she tells him that her father always said, “If you learn the stars, you’ll never be lost.” Well, here she is, in this entirely unknown part of the galaxy, lost. Soran is showing her the star as they can be seen from his homeworld. And she tells him, “I don’t know these stars, Soran. They’re not mine.” So, then he begins to teach her the constellations and she realizes he’s doing this, so that she won’t feel so lost. Tear-jerker scene. 😊

Do you have a motto, quote or philosophy you live by?

“The only people who never fail are those who never try.”

POISON by JADE WEST

5 erotic stars!

‘The thrill of knowing something was coming. Something that set your very soul alight with the need. The want. The craving. The fire and the burn and the crazy pull of flesh on flesh. Oh hell yes, I knew it.’

Poison by Jade West is now our favourite book by this author. It was absolutely compelling with a great storyline, we just could not put it down. And in true Jade West style, it was oh so filthy. So very filthy we cringed at times, but only in that funny and somewhat OMG way that we love, because whilst it may be a bit eww in parts, it’s also very very hot! We have to say, that when Jade West characters love, they love without abandon and their sex lives literally knows no boundaries or limits, rather they let the moment dictate the filth. When you love, you love absolutely everything about the other person and nothing is seen as taboo! Poison is a highly emotional and raw second chance romance which is fuelled by lies and repercussions. It was messy, it was ugly, it was tragic and it was incredibly intense. Two broken souls and hearts who reconnect with a ping from a text message, opening a can of worms whilst revisiting a ferocious passion and love affair.
