Who Wrote That Book Wednesday: J.A. Redmerski

You can follow the rules or you can follow your heart...THE MOMENT OF LETTING GO

Sienna Murphy never does anything without a plan. And so far her plans have been working. Right after college, she got a prestigious job and gained the stability she'd always craved-until work takes her to the sun-drenched shores of Oahu and places her in the path of sexy surfer Luke Everett. For the first time, she lets her heart take control. Drawn to his carefree charm, she makes a spontaneous and very un-Sienna-like decision to drop everything and stay in Hawaii for two more weeks.

Luke lives fast and wild. When he meets Sienna, he's convinced that some no-strings-attached fun is just what she needs. As their nights quickly turn from playful to passionate, Luke can't deny the deep connection he feels. But there's a reason Luke doesn't do long-term. He can't promise Sienna forever, when the enormity of his past has shown him just how fragile the future can be . . .

Bio:

J.A. (Jessica Ann) Redmerski is a New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author and award winner who juggles several different genres; a hybrid author who, in addition to working with a traditional publisher, also continues to self-publish. 

Things on Jessica’s wish list are to conquer her long list of ridiculous fears, find a shirt she actually likes, and travel the world with a backpack and a partner-in-crime. What book is Jessica most proud to have written? It’s a question she gets asked quite often. The answer is, hands down DIRTY EDEN. “DIRTY EDEN was an entirely organic experience for me, as was the story from beginning to end; nothing was planned, and I didn’t know the end myself until I got there. As much as I enjoy writing love stories and crime novels, a big part of my heart really does lie in the satirical and strange. I just wish more people would read it.”

Interview



-What is one thing that people do not know about you?

I'm a huge fan and supporter of indie music. In the MySpace days I found so many fantastic indie bands and musicians, and I kind of miss that. I tend to enjoy indie music more than the mainstream stuff - it's more organic and unique, and you feel the hard work put into it by the musicians. Also, I'm fascinated - obsessed - with the Universe and all things physics and astronomy.



-What do you think people will love most about this book?

I think readers will connect with THE MOMENT OF LETTING GO a lot easier than they did with SONG OF THE FIREFLIES because the story and characters are more in THE EDGE OF NEVER vein; Luke and Sienna are warm and funny a lot like Camryn and Andrew were.



-Who is THE ONE Author that makes you fangirl?

Currently I would have to say Paullina Simons, author of THE BRONZE HORSEMAN trilogy.



-What is your most favorite book that you have read?

It's impossible for me to choose one. I'd have to say THE BRONZE HORSEMAN trilogy by Paullina Simons, THE VAMPIRE ARMAND by Anne Rice, NEVERWHERE by Neil Gaiman and THE ROAD by Cormac McCarthy.



-What television shows do you watch the most?

I LOVE television! I'm a binge watcher. My favorites are The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones and Vikings.


-Name one thing in your life that you would like to do that you haven’t done.

I would love to travel the world with a backpack and a partner-in-crime.



-What is your favorite movie of all time?

Fight Club



-What is your favorite genre of music to listen to?

Rock



-If you had to play a theme song each morning what would it be?

Anything with Layne Staley on vocals - Mad Season, Alice in Chains.

5 Beautiful Stars

WOW! This story blew me away! I’m not sure that I will be able to write a review that will do it justice and really express how much I loved it but I am really going to try.

I had forgotten what an amazing writer JA is. The last book I read of hers was The Edge Of Never and I loved that story very much but with life being so busy and such I just hadn’t gotten around to reading any of her other books yet and I am totally kicking myself for that right now.

Sienna & Luke’s story brought so many emotions to the surface for me. I was able to totally get lost in it and tune out the rest of the world right from the start and I love when a book (Author) can make me do that.

I loved these characters and felt a strong connection to them right away and as their story unfolds it will give you all the feels from butterflies in your stomach, to the aww sweet moments, then on to the moments when you are sighing and thinking you just couldn’t possibly love these two anymore than you already do BUT you will love them more by the end of the book than you ever thought possible. I really could have went on reading their story forever.

This story will make you think of the things that you might need to let go of in your life. It will make you deeply appreciate the things that are really important to you and be thankful for them. It will just give you ALL the feels!

You will laugh, love and cry with these characters but in the end you will take a deep breath and think to yourself ….gawd that was an amazing story. I know I did!
