AAD Featured Author Interview: Jess Haines

Welcome Authors After Dark 2014 featured author Jess Haines!

What brings you back to AAD?
I’ve been attending Authors After Dark every year since they were in New Jersey back in 2010. This will be my 5th Authors After Dark. I have had a blast every time and always look forward to seeing friends, fans, and new faces every year!

So where will attendees be able to find you at AAD? Do you hang out in the bar? The lobby? Or are you the one who throws parties in their room?
You’ll usually find me running around like a chicken with my head cut off. There are always things to do at AAD and never enough time to get it all done! I love attending panels, readings and parties, so you will most likely find me sitting in on any of the urban fantasy or paranormal events when I’m not in the middle of hosting my own. Once in a while I’ll take a breather at the bar or in the lobby to hang out with friends. Don’t be afraid to come join me!

Do you have a book coming out before AAD you want the attendees to know about?
July 1st, 2014 -- plan your escape with Enslaved by the Others!

Vampires, werewolves, magi and worse--the Others have joined the mortal world, and there's no turning back now... 
As a New York P.I. and Other specialist, Shiarra Waynest has been in plenty of trouble before. But waking up in a windowless room the prisoner of a vampire slave trader is a shock for anyone. Shia has her wits, her bravado, and a couple of used staples, so maybe she can take on a mansion full of serious evil. 
But although she's desperate to escape, Shia needs some answers too. Her friends are in danger. There are betrayers and spies among them. And even if she can figure out what's going on and somehow get a message out, she's still a captive of the worst kind... 

If you were to suggest one of your books to the AAD attendees, which book would it be?
You should pick up The Real Werewives of Vampire County! Not only is this anthology sexy and fun, but our Master of Ceremonies, Alexandra Ivy, is the headliner! You can have both of us sign it for you at AAD. How cool is that?

Drama. Scandal. Secrets. And a whole lot of supernatural goings-on.

I'm Pureblood Were, And Proud Of It. . .
"Where Darkness Lives" by Alexandra Ivy
No one's more surprised than Sophia when she's struck by an unfamiliar maternal urge to move near her daughters. But instead of being greeted by a welcome committee, she's targeted by kidnappers. . .and saddled with a gorgeous bodyguard on a mission to protect—and seduce. . .

I'm A Tomboy At Heart, But I Want A Man Who Makes Me Feel Like A Real Woman. . .
"Murder on Mysteria Lane" by Angie Fox
When a werewolf trophy wife is found dead in Vampire County, Heather McPhee goes undercover to investigate. Heather's never been a mascara-and-manicures sort of girl, but she's willing to learn. Especially with sexy vampire detective Lucien Mead posing as her husband. . .

Who's Afraid Of The Big, Bad Werewolves? Not Me, That's For Sure. . .
"What's Yours is Mine" by Jess Haines
Still Waters is like many other exclusive gated communities—except that it's home to one of the largest werewolf packs in the state. But Tiffany Winters isn't frightened of her big, bad new neighbors. In fact, she intends to take her place among the pack. . .

This Is A Town Full Of Secrets. And I Intend To Uncover All Of Them...
"Werewolves in Chic Clothing" by Tami Dane
Ever since Christine Price moved in with her fiancé, Jonathan, and his twelve year-old son, she's worked hard to fit in with a cadre of local women whose lives seem picture-perfect. Except no one in Jon's upscale neighborhood is quite who they appear to be. Least of all Jon. . .

What panels will you be on at AAD?
Look for me on the Vamps panel and the Odd Paranormals panel this year. If you like vampires as much as I do, ever played Vampire: the Masquerade, or have an unhealthy obsession with Spike from Buffy, come join me to talk about those sexy bloodsuckers. As for odd paranormals, well, if you get a kick out of zombies, necromancers, fox demons and more, that’s the place to be!

If an adoring fan wanted to buy you a drink at the bar, what’s your poison?
Anything involving coffee and/or chocolate. If they don’t have that, rum and Coke is my poison of choice.

SWAG. We all love SWAG! What cool stuff are you bringing?
Keep an eye out for mini handcuffs as part of my promotion for Enslaved by the Others! They make excellent badge swag.
