“Come on now.  I can’t just go walking down the street with you.  What if you run off?  I’d never forgive myself if you were hit by a car.”  Then again, the car would probably suffer more damage than the dog.  I tried not to grin at the thought as I took aim and attempted to get the leash on his collar but he jerked away.   I ended up doubled over him with my head to the floor and my feet towards the ceiling over his back.  I slid myself slowly onto the floor and lay there looking up at the dog looming over me.  “Ok, this is not going to work.  How am I going to find your owner if you aren’t helping me?”  He sprawled out flat on the floor next to me and laid his head on my shoulder.  He was not making this any easier.  Dad would blow up when he got home if the dog was still here.  “Grant, I know you like it here.  But you have to go home.  Dad will never let me keep you, and I’m sure someone is missing you.”  He let out a small whimper.

Jordan Deen will be at the following events in 2014. Come see her!

Author Interview with Jordan Deen

Q: You recently became an Indie Author after re-releasing your titles outside of your previous publisher. What has that change been like?

Jordan: The Indie world is so much different than the traditionally published world. You have so much more control over your work and how you want yourself to be represented to the public and to your fans. It is an amazing feeling to be able to connect with people in ways that hadn’t been available to me before. I think it’s one of the best decisions I’ve made. I love the Indie world.

Q: The Crescent centers around a world of wolves. Why wolves?

Jordan: I’ve always had a soft spot for wolves because I had my German Shepherd, Biscuit, that looked like a giant black wolf. He was a rescue dog that I got when he was about a year old. He lived until he was thirteen and he was my buddy. I still miss him dearly, but I have this story to remind me of some of the hijinks I had with him. 

Q: How would you describe Lacey, Alex, and Brandon to those new to The Crescent world?

Jordan: Great question! So, to keep things organized, I’ll bullet point each character.

Lacey- she’s grown up in a family that she doesn’t fully understand and that makes her social awkward and a little stand offish. She really wants to go to college to get away from her clicky high school, but her parents don’t want her moving away and that almost makes her desire moving even more. She has one best friend, Jillian, that she is fiercely loyal to and she’s never been boy crazy or head over heels for anyone.
Alex—oh my. Alex is hotness in a heather-grey shirt and slouched jeans. He is that boy that you stop to stare at when he walks in the coffee shop because you think there must be a commercial being filmed or something. He is confident, smooth and a little cocky (but hey, he kinda can be). He causes a lot of confusion and sexual tension in Lacey’s world and his arrogance really is endearing and annoying—all at the same time.
Brandon—he is hot but in a much different way. He is that boy next door that you’ve known since you were five that would do anything for you. He’s the guy that would help an old lady across a street and save a kitten from a tree. He’s the dependable one and only has eyes for Lacey… how can you beat that?

Q: What can readers look forward to in the next book, Full Moon?

Jordan: Full Moon is the final book in the series and it has been the hardest book I’ve ever had to write. I’m going to miss these characters so much. They’ve been living in my head for almost four years now! Full Moon is a very deep book—emotionally and mentally. Fans are going to see Lacey grow into the world of werewolves, but she will start to embrace her witch side too. There is a lot of witch prophecy that is introduced and we get to meet some new characters with very interesting talents. I can’t wait to share it with everyone. 

Q: Is there other publishing news you would like to share coming in 2014?

Jordan: Since transitioning to Indie, I am slowing pulling all of my titles and re-releasing them. ‘Breaking Lauren’- the first novel in my Lauren Series will be re-released on 2/18 and the sequel, ‘Finding Lauren’ will be re-released (tentatively) on 3/11. I have a third series planned to begin at the end of this year, but that is still on the DL.
