Interview with Jennifer L. Armentrout

     How many of you are excited for the release of Opal? I know I can't wait! For those of you who don't know, Opal is the third book in the Lux series. The first book in the Lux series is Obsidian, and to check out my review click here.
     Here's the synopsis for Opal, taken from Goodreads:

No one is like Daemon Black.
When he set out to prove his feelings for me, he wasn’t fooling around. Doubting him isn’t something I’ll do again, and now that we’ve made it through the rough patches, well... There’s a lot of spontaneous combustion going on.
But even he can’t protect his family from the danger of trying to free those they love.
After everything, I’m no longer the same Katy. I’m different... And I’m not sure what that will mean in the end. When each step we take in discovering the truth puts us in the path of the secret organization responsible for torturing and testing hybrids, the more I realize there is no end to what I’m capable of. The death of someone close still lingers, help comes from the most unlikely source, and friends will become the deadliest of enemies, but we won’t turn back. Even if the outcome will shatter our worlds forever.
Together we’re stronger... and they know it.

Opal (Lux, #3)

Author bio (from her website): USA TODAY Bestselling author Jennifer lives in Martinsburg, West Virginia. All the rumors you’ve heard about her state aren’t true. When she’s not hard at work writing. she spends her time reading, working out, watching really bad zombie movies, pretending to write, and hanging out with her husband and her Jack Russel Loki.
Her dreams of becoming an author started in algebra class, where she spent most of her time writing short stories….which explains her dismal grades in math. Jennifer writes young adult paranormal, science fiction, fantasy, and contemporary romance. She also writes adult romance under the name J. Lynn.

I asked Jennifer L. Armentrout for a quick interview, and here it is.

When did you decide you start writing?
As cliche as it sounds, I've always wanted to be writer. As a kid, I wrote really bad poems on my bedroom walls. It was doing the 9th grade, that I wrote my first novel by longhand. So I've always wanted to write.
Have you always wanted to write, or did you want to do something else?
I went to college for psychology and criminal justice. It wasn't until 2007 that got back into writing.
How long do you see yourself writing for?
Forever, hopefully.
What inspired you to write the Lux series?
My editor approached me, asking if I'd be interested in writing about aliens in high school. My first response was to laugh and say no, but the more I thought about it, I came up with Katy, Daemon, and the idea of the Luxens. The rest is history.
Is Damon based off of anyone you know, and if so, can I meet him?
No. He's not based off of anyone, but if he was, he'd be a keeper.
     Unfortunately at this time she didn't have time for a longer interview, but if you want to contact Jennifer L. Armentrout to ask a question you can get in touch with her through her Facebook page, Goodreads, her website:, her website:, follow on Twitter  or her e-mail: jenniferlarmentrout(at)live(dot)com.
     Opal's release date is December 18th 2012. You can pre-order Opal from Amazon, Indiebound, Google eBooks, Better World Books, Indigo, Barnes and Noble, Books a Million and more.
Thanks everyone! And thank you Jennifer L. Armentrout!

Thanks for the heads up! I have the following thing fixed now.

Post a Comment

I love comments! So don't hesitate to share your thoughts. Leave your blog/website name and link so I can get back to you. And if you're a new follower, tell me. Note that this is an award-free zone. I loved getting awards and I was pleased you guys thought I was special, but I was nominated so many times and it took a lot of time to do the award posts, time that I don't have. So thanks, but no thanks.

Happy reading!
