Review, Interview and Contest: Jamie by Catherine Lievens

Blurb:
Jamie is a normal guy with a normal, if not boring, life. Everything changes when he goes camping and stumbles on a well-guarded secret in the woods: shifters exists! It opens a whole new world to him, a world he wouldn’t have thought possible outside a novel, and he has to decide if Ward is worth the changes that are turning his life upside down.

Ward has searched for his mate for a long time, and now that he has found Jamie, he will do everything he can to keep his gorgeous human, even face jealous exes or try to convince Jamie to get over his fear of relationships. He needs a chance, just one, but just as Jamie begins to trust him, things starts to crumble.

When Jamie disappears, Ward looks for him, but without clues, how can he find his mate? Will he find Jamie in time to save him from a horrible future?

Review:
Catherine is a new author and I’m so glad she contacted me requesting a review. Jamie comes alive on the pages of the book and you can feel his struggles with his self worth in the relationship. Keenan is hysterical and there are some things going on with him and other characters that I can’t wait to find out what happens next. I loved how she described Jamie and Ward reacted to the break in. One thing I really enjoyed which is different than most shifter books is that they didn’t jump into the mating right away. They took their time to get to know each other. Granted Ward was ready to mate when they met but he did what made Jamie comfortable. I’m very interested to see how the plot line with the kidnappers goes in future books.

Interview:
Molly: What music, if any do you listen to when you write?
Catherine: Anything that doesn’t have lyrics in it, otherwise I start singing along and I get distracted. For the WIP I’m working on at the moment I like to listen to Debussy.
Molly: Are you a full time writer, or part time writer?
Catherine: I guess you can say I’m part time writer and part time mum. My son is only two and a half, so he’s really demanding for now and it’s nearly a second job.
Molly: What was the transition like between part time and full time writer?
Catherine: I’m a full time writer, but I never actually transitioned. I graduated last year from college and my son was still small, so I stayed at home with him. I started writing in the times in which he was napping, and here I am!
Molly: Do you have a word count per day you try to hit?
Catherine: Right now I’m doing NaNoWriMo, so that’s about 1600 words per day, but usually I try to get at least one scene of the WIP I’m working on done each day, and those are about 1300 words long, often more.
Molly: When you finish writing a book, how long before you begin writing the next one?
Catherine: I usually start right away, which is why I already have ten books in the Whitedell Pride Series done, and a few in a spin off series. It actually feels weird not to write, just like I couldn’t not read every day, and if I don’t I still spend a lot of my time thinking about my characters and I have to write things down anyway. They just won’t shut up!

About Catherine:
Catherine lives in Italy, country of good food and hot men. She used to write fantasy as a child, but it was reading her first gay erotic romance novel that made her realize that that was what she really wanted to write.

After graduating from college in English language and translation, she divides her day between writing, reading, taking care of her son and reading some more.
