Author Interview – Caila Jaynes & Allyson Simonian

Thanks so much to Rachelle Paige for interviewing us on her blog.

Meeting Danger - final revised cover

Welcome to Kindle Scout winning authors Caila Jaynes & Allyson Simonian

Originally from the East Coast, Allyson Simonian now lives in California with her husband and children. She began to write in 2012, inspired by the emotion in the Fifty Shades of Grey series. It had been a while since Allyson had even read a romance novel. Now she’s obsessed with the genre, especially the sub-genre of romantic suspense.

Caila Jaynes is a Southern girl, born in the Carolinas and raised on outrageous storytelling and sweet iced tea. She loves romance, happily-ever-afters, and a good mystery. Put those three together and she’s a happy girl. Now an empty nester, she’s busier than ever, but for some crazy reason decided to pursue a lifelong dream of writing. Her stories will never leave you hanging, and all are guaranteed to have a happy ending.

Tell us about Meeting Danger

In Book One, Meeting Danger, Camden Taylor is a federal agent working undercover in an outlaw motorcycle club, the Wicked Disciples, investigating their heroin operation. When they kidnap a member of another club, Camden has no choice but to blow his cover in order to save the man’s life…

They Like Us!

Two weeks ago, my writing partner and I received the most amazing e-mail.

Screen Shot 2016-07-13 at 10.09.44 PM

Can you believe it? I couldn’t. I read it holding my hand over my mouth, afraid to breathe, afraid to blink, wanting desperately to pinch myself because surely I was dreaming. So I closed the e-mail, opened it again, and sure enough—it still read that our book was selected!

Allyson and I are over-the-moon excited about the prospect of becoming Kindle Press authors. The two weeks since we received the news have gone by in a whirlwind, hence this late post. Once we’d submitted everything the Kindle Press team asked for, our book status changed to “in production,” which means we’ve done everything we could and now have to wait.

And that’s hard, especially for a Type A personality like me. Allyson, on the other hand, keeps smiling smugly at me from three states away (I can’t see her, but I know she’s doing it). After all, she’s the one who kept saying all along that our book would surely be chosen, and that I should stop worrying.

Turns out she must have a crystal ball. Either that or she’s just an eternal optimist.

While we wait for a release date for Meeting Danger, Allyson is hard at work on her turn at Scene Mockup 7 - wrapped book coming soonour first draft of Trusting Danger, Book Two in The Danger Series, and I’m thinking about marketing and such things. When she’s done her part and send the manuscript to me, then it’s my turn to work my magic. And then we’ll rinse and repeat the process a gajillion times until we’re happy with the story.

Our hope is that Meeting Danger will be released on Amazon by the end of the summer, and Trusting Danger will follow in late fall/early winter if we self-publish, or perhaps a little later if we go another route. Stay tuned for more on that.

In the meantime…it’s time for a giveaway! Who’d like a $10 Amazon gift card to spend on whatever you choose? (You’ll spend it on books; I know you will.) Head on over to my author page on Facebook to enter. And hurry…the giveaway will end in a week.

If you’re popping in here to say “hi” as a means to gain another entry in the giveaway, welcome! And feel free to ask your friends to enter too.

Hope you come back soon.
