Dockside Lunch with Tina Wainscott

Lunching on a dock in Naples, Florida with Tina Wainscott

On my last day in Florida, I caught up with author Tina Wainscott/Jaime Rush.  Over lunch at an iconic seaside restaurant, we talked about the trend of authors having multiple books come out in one year.  I remember the days of reading a book by a favorite author and knowing it would be a year or two before the next one would come out.  Now, it seems, authors are almost pushing out books monthly.

BV:  Tina, this is going to be a very busy year for you and your alter ego, Jaime Rush.

TW:  It actually started in December.  My Jaime Rush paranormal series has books coming out in December, January and February.

BV:  Didn’t I hear that you are taking a departure from paranormal to delve into romantic suspense?


TW:  I had an e-short, Wild Hearts, come out in January.  It introduces my new Justiss Alliance series where you’ll  meet the five Navy SEALs who undertake the covert mission that trashes their careers—and the offer that changes their lives.  The full length novels will be out in February, March and June.

BV:  What happened to April?

TW:  Well, I actually do have something in April.  I’ll be part of a boxed set of romantic suspense books called The Dangerous Dozen along with Virna DePaul,  Maureen Child, Paige Tyler, Maureen A. Miller, Caridad Pineiro writing as Charity, Kristin Miller, Karen Fenech, Nina Bruhns, Gennita Low, Tawny Weber and Joyce Lamb.

BV:  That’s a terrific line up, but it all sounds exhausting.  What do you do in your spare time?

TW:  I do have a young daughter that I love spending time with.  I make sure we talk a lot, have dinner together and then do things together in the evening.  I write after she’s asleep.

BV:  What are your plans for the rest of the year?

TW:  I have a lot of marketing to do, so I’ve started a new Facebook page.  Now that I think about it, I’d like to offer anyone who “Likes” it, to be entered into a drawing for special dog tags I have made up for my books.  Other than trying to get the word out on my books, I plan to write, write, write.

BV:  Sure there aren’t any other books we missed?The+Best+of+Me-150x217

TW:  Actually, I just found out that Harlequin just rereleased a book of mine called “The Best of Me.”  It was a happy surprise.

BV:  Do you think readers like books issued this fast or don’t you think it makes any difference?

TW:  I think when readers find an author they like, they want to read all their books and look for more.  When they read a series, they don’t want to wait a year to find out what happens to the rest of the group.  There’s an immediacy nowadays and e-readers make it so simple for the reader to get that next book.

Bottom Line:  I really felt like a slacker after talking with Tina and all the writing she’s done lately, but that’s what writers want to do…write.

Hot New Releases!

Barbara Vey -- January 7th, 2014

I finally made it to warm Florida from the frozen tundra.  Although I left -13 degrees, it was only in the 50’s when I arrived, but it felt downright balmy.  It’ll hit the 80s by the end of the week and I’ll be in Orlando attending the Seymour Agency Author Retreat.  This is the only way to appreciate winter.  I brought 6 paperbacks with me, but I’ve got a ton more on my e-reader.  I thought I was all set and now here’s a bunch of new releases to chooses from.
