Krystal Shannan Interviews - Jewels Moss

Jewels Moss

Jewels Moss is a published author of science fiction books, and paranormal romance novels. She keeps her true identity a secret because it is fun to be Jewels. This is why she created her for her naughty side. She enjoys writing erotica; especially if she can create erotica from a story you wouldn't expect it from. Her works include The Siren's Song, Naughty Tales, and the soon to be released Why Yellow Jackets can't find the Hole. She enjoys being an author with Midnight Hour Publishing.

Did you always want to be an author? 
No, I actually didn’t know this was my passion until I got a job writing for a website, and realized I liked it.

What is your favorite part of being a writer/author? 
Coming up with stories and creating worlds. It is fun when they take on a mind of their own.

Tell us a little about your books. 
The Siren’s Song is a first in a series of erotic shorts about three sisters. The sisters are Siren’s and daughters of the devil. Their purpose in life is to collect souls for their father’s army. 
The first in the series is about Celeste and what happens when she likes one of the men she is supposed to kill.

Naughty Tales:
Six steamy fairytales for adults. A virginal princess unwillingly stumbles into a magical land where a knight with a giant appetite for life is waiting to seduce her. Will she stay in his mad world of debauchery and sin, or go back to her wholesome life as the princess of her people? Find out in Naughty Tales!

The Siren’s Song:
Celeste is a Siren, the spawn of Satan, and only in this world to do one thing. That one thing is seduce men to kill them and send their soul to her father. She has been good at this job for thousands of years. One day a man sails into her clutches that she doesn't want to let go, she has never felt passion and desire as she does when she kisses him. Too bad he has to die.
William is a young man on a great adventure. A lovely song makes him break his course and to his men's shock he dives into the ocean to go searching for it. What he finds is a gorgeous and mysterious woman who he desires more than any lady he has ever set his eyes upon. She has a secret though, and when he finds out he will want to run or swim for his life. 

Excerpt for Naughty Tales:
Princess Bernadette had not yet known the touch of a man. Well truthfully she had been touched a little just not in the way where you lose your virtue. To her parents and her kingdom however she was as pure as the mountain snow, and she aimed to keep it that way. She liked to go for walks in the woods near the castle to clear her mind, and relax after a strenuous day of lessons, and activities her parents thought she needed to stay busy with. One particularly ordinary afternoon she was walking through the woods when a strange light caught her eye. There in the middle of the woods was some type of orb that was a bright brilliant orange. She was not one to go poking things she did not know about but this particular orb looked very intriguing. She found herself drawn to it, and certainly thought it must be some type of magic. Part of her wanted to turn away as the allure of the unknown both excited and terrified her. She was pulled towards the light and even reached out to touch it. When she did her arm disappeared inside of it, and she felt something brush against her arm. She jerked her arm back and started to run away, but curiosity got the best of her and she stuck her head in. She was shocked by what she saw and thought she better get back to her castle when she toppled over and landed right in the middle of the madness.

Excerpt for The Siren’s Song:
William breathed in the crisp sea air and looked around at the men on his boat. Nothing made him happier than sailing on the open sea. It was a beautiful day and the people would be pleased with all the goods he was bringing them. He felt alive and free when he was on the ocean. His father wanted him to stop traveling and take over the company. He could not picture a life behind a desk. William loved adventure.
The Captain of the ship sighted an island to the right of them, and William followed his gaze thinking it looked quite beautiful.
"Perhaps we will stop and explore it on our way home gentlemen." It looked untouched, and there was nothing William enjoyed more than a new discovery.
The song was faint at first, and William thought he had imagined it. It was beautiful and sweet. It was unlike anything he had ever heard. It surrounded him and filled him with joy and longing. He looked around at the other men to see if they had heard it, but they were going about their business. Walking over to the side of the boat he leaned a little over the side to see if he could hear the song clearer.

When did you start writing and when did you finish your first book?
 I finished my first book last year, and I have always written a little here and there.

Where do you get your inspiration?
 From reading, writing other stories, and sometimes the plot just comes to me out of nowhere.

Do you plot and outline or do you just write? 
 I just stare at the blank Word document and just go for it.

Plotter or Pantser?
Pantster for sure, I just start and go!

Can you tell us a little about the process of getting your first book published?
The first book I published wasn’t under Jewels and I sent it to a small publisher, she liked it and published it. Much simpler than some people’s journeys.

What book have you most recently released? 
Naughty Tales and The Siren’s Song came out at the same time.

What was your favorite part of the book?
When the Siren’s lover makes his decision to live.  My favorite story in Naughty Tales is The Woodman and the Serpent.

Rate your story in terms steaminess? 
Like a 9.5 on a 10 point scale

Do you have another book in the works?
 I do! Why Yellow Jackets Can’t Find the Hole will be out December 15th with Midnight Fire. I am excited about this release!

What advice would you give new authors?  What have you learned about the business?
I think that it is best if you make friends with people who can give you advice, and try to get a following of people by being a person, not just constantly hounding them to buy from you.

Boxers or Briefs? Boxers 
Pizza or hamburger? Pizza
Beer, Wine, or mixed drink? Mixed Drink

If you could spend a week anywhere in the world, where would it be?  Would you write or read there, or do something else?
The beach anywhere, I am not hard to please. The best place is where I can relax and I would write and read there.
