Hello, my little turtle doves! Long time, no talkie. Wanna know the because why? I’ve been out-of-my-mind cray-zay biz-zay! ”But, Gina,” you say, ”how can you always be so busy when you’re never releasing any books?!” Ah, yes, of course. That’s a very good point, and here are a smattering of reasons for that:

  • According to Guinness Book of World Records, I’m the slowest writer ever to have writ in the history of writing.
  • I’ve spent time back-packing across Alaska as an experiment to see if I spend enough time in the harsh winter conditions, I’d actually start to enjoy snow, ice, and freezing my ass off. (The answer is NO, btw.)
  • While working on Sweet Victory, book 4 in the Fighting for Love series, I was offered two very amazing opportunities that I couldn’t pass up. Which meant putting SV on hold for a little while. The good news…

Desires of the Soul: Release Date Pushed Back (I’m so sorry!)

I love this author!I will always be loyal!

Gina L. Maxwell's Blog

DesiresoftheSoul_mockup_blueeyesI regret to announce that the release date for book one of my paranormal romance series, Desires of the Soul, has been pushed back. I had originally planned on releasing it today, December 30th, but things have altered my writing schedule such that I’ve been unable to work on DotS to get it to the finished stage for release.

Technically, I know I could release it as it is right now and a lot of people would love it, and it’s possible it might even do okay with sales. But it’s far from being at the level I feel I’m known for, and what I know I’m capable of. Being that this is my first impression in the paranormal genre, it’s important that I get it right, but it’s also extremely important to me that I give my readers the absolute best story I can, because that’s…

My interview with author Laura Wright.

Hi Marie! Thanks for having me:)*You are the Queen of Cliffhangers and at the end of Broken I’m already want to read Brash! Will we know who murdered Cass in Brash?

Queen of Cliffhangers, huh? I like that! Lol.. But.. and don’t hate me.. I can’t give you a definitive answer. I can say you will know a lot more about Cass’s murder. (you hate me now right?)

*When I was reading Branded & Broken there were moments when I needed to take a break because it was so emotional.When you are writing these scenes do you also feel like you need to take a break from all the emotions?
Yes. It’s actually a strange thing. Sometimes I get so caught up in the emotions as I’m writing I find I can’t breathe. Or.. I’m not breathing well. I have to stop and lie down.. get myself together. Their emotions cause me anxiety. But I wouldn’t have it any other way. I want it to ring true.

*The Cavanaugh Brothers series has a darker concept and I really like these kind of books because without darkness there can’t be light.What is the darkest book you have read?

Probably Karen Marie Monings Fever series. I couldn’t function after reading those books. I felt emotionally ripped apart.
What about you? Darkest book you’ve read?
About the author
Unlike many of my peers in the writing world, I wasn’t a writer or a reader until I left high school. During my youth I was into theater, song and dance, commercials and boys. I loved romance surely, but I had never read a romance novel until my late teens. With that said, I remember the day I did like it was a moment ago – my aunt gave me the Jude Deveraux novel, Knight in Shining Armor and I couldn’t put it down until the very last word. Then I went straight to the library and got another – then another until I’d read everything she’d ever written. After that, it was McNaught, Howard, Schone, Kleypas, and the Silhouette line, Desire. I instantly loved those emotional, sexy reads, so much so that I began to carve out ideas for my own stories, themes that were unique to me and moved me. In 1997 I enrolled in UCLA extension writing classes, met my mentor and critique partners and since have never stopped writing. I was committed then and I still am now; the need to tell my own romantic stories a full on obsession. My first manuscript was rejected, and though the second one was as well the editor who’d rejected it wanted to see something else from me. I had something (note to authors; always keep working, even after you’ve sent in a proposal) and sent it right away. The day I got the call telling me Desire wanted to buy Cinderella and the Playboy was the best day of my life. That is until I married my husband, and had my two beautiful children. But I must say, writing is much like motherhood – tough, grueling, surprising, delicious and for me, a dream come true.
