Interview with J. Lynn aka Jennifer Armentrout
Wait for You author Jennifer Armentrout fills us in on her latest novel.
Many of your novels feature the paranormal. Can we expect to see the otherworldly or gifted in Wait for You?
There’s nothing otherwordly about Wait for You, except for maybe Cam’s abs. But you can expect the romance readers come to enjoy in my paranormal books.
The story focuses on Avery and Cameron. Could you tell us a little about them?
Avery is looking to start over in a new town far away from her home, hoping that putting distance between her and her past, she’ll be able to move on from a traumatic event in her past. The last thing she expects is 21 year old Cameron Hamilton. He’s infuriating as he is sexy and it’s not long before their friendship becomes something more. Both of them have a good sense of humor, especially Avery. She’s a strong girl and Cam, well, if I start talking about him, then I’ll start gushing about the dude.
What was the hardest part of writing Wait for You?
Keeping the reactions real. There’s not more I can say about that without being too spoilery, but that was the part I focused on the most.
Is it easy to transition between writing Young Adult and New Adult?
Most definitely! My YA is consider “upper YA,” so it wasn’t a big change for me at all.
When you start planning a new book, do you decide early on if it will be a series or does that come about later in your writing process?
I always know if it will be a series or not at the start of the book even though I rarely plot. I did plot on this one though! Shocker.
Historical. Would love to, but don’t have the talent for it.
How much say do you have in which models are chosen for your book covers?
I had all the say in this cover and I’m absolutely in love with it.
Right now all I do is write. I swear to you. I don’t think I do anything else except sleep and eat.
What books are in your to-be-read pile?
Too many. Way too many.
Laid back llama lover. I know that’s more than 3 words, but try saying that really fast.
About Wait for You
Some things are worth waiting for…
Traveling thousands of miles from home to enter college is the only way nineteen-year-old Avery Morgansten can escape what happened at the Halloween party five years ago—an event that forever changed her life. All she needs to do is make it to her classes on time, make sure the bracelet on her left wrist stays in place, not draw any attention to herself, and maybe—please God—make a few friends, because surely that would be a nice change of pace. The one thing she didn’t need and never planned on was capturing the attention of the one guy who could shatter the precarious future she’s building for herself.
Some things are worth experiencing…
Cameron Hamilton is six feet and three inches of swoon-worthy hotness, complete with a pair of striking blue eyes and a remarkable ability to make her want things she believed were irrevocably stolen from her. She knows she needs to stay away from him, but Cam is freaking everywhere, with his charm, his witty banter, and that damn dimple that’s just so… so lickable. Getting involved with him is dangerous, but when ignoring the simmering tension that sparks whenever they are around each other becomes impossible, he brings out a side of her she never knew existed.
Some things should never be kept quiet…
But when Avery starts receiving threatening emails and phone calls forcing her to face a past she wants silenced, she’s has no other choice but to acknowledge that someone is refusing to allow her to let go of that night when everything changed. When the devastating truth comes out, will she resurface this time with one less scar? And can Cam be there to help her or will he be dragged down with her?
And some things are worth fighting for…
