J.M. Miller is releasing her Falling in Deep novella, Deep Breath, next Tuesday, June 16, 2015. I caught up with the author recently, and she agreed to answer a few questions. (:
What authors do you like to read? Favorite saying about writing?
There are so many, Indies and Trad pubbed alike. Stephen King, JK Rowling, Colleen Hoover, Tammara Webber, Fisher Amelie to name a few. I enjoy reading lots of genres, but I tend to stick to anything with a romantic element of some kind.
Favorite saying about writing:
Write like no one’s reading. -Unknown
Favorite writing music? Does it change from project to project? Favorite color?
This changes from project to project, but I’m a rock fan so a lot of my book playlists include a lot of my favorite bands.
Tell us about Deep Breath.
Deep Breath is about twenty-five year old Marissa Pruitt, who discovers a pendant and coordinates her marine archaeologist father had kept hidden for years. Needing more closure about his death, she decides to search for answers and winds up at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico staring into the eyes of a merman.
Do you have any advice for new writers (like me)?
Study up on the usual grammar hang-ups, and keep reading. I often have issues reading while I’m working on a project, but reading is essential. Also, find a critique partner, one who isn’t afraid to tell you the truth and give you ice cream after they’ve made you cry. 😉
Order the AWESOMENESS here.
Before disappearing at sea, Marissa Pruitt’s father—a once revered marine archaeologist—walked the line of insanity, claiming to have seen a mermaid during an ordinary dive in the Gulf of Mexico. He abandoned his life and career, completely obsessed with chasing the truth.
It’s been years since his death, and Marissa is still tormented by countless unanswered questions. When she finds dive coordinates and a stone pendant hidden in her father’s things, she asks for help from his old protégé and sets out to give her father one last goodbye and maybe find closure for her troubled heart. Instead, she finds the truth he’d been searching for all along, with a life and love she never could have imagined. But there’s a price to see it all, one set by betrayal and paid with an anchor at her feet and salt water in her lungs.
When she isn’t distracted by social media sites, she writes Young Adult and New Adult romance novels that vary in genre from contemporary to paranormal, with a little mystery or suspense thrown in for fun. Aside from spending time with her family, she loves to travel and will jump at the chance to go anywhere, whenever life allows.
