I’m romance author Honey Jans. I guess you could say that I’m a natural born romantic. In my life I’ve worn many hats, from wife to mother, and caregiver to sales. They’ve all combined to make me who I am; a writer who weaves together tales of love, from the sweet to the decidedly erotic.
I live in scenic central Wisconsin with my husband, but love to travel to exotic locales. I belong to RWA, WisRWA, Desert Rose, and PAN, and EPIC, and write for various publishers as well as for my own personal satisfaction.
You can find me hanging out online at my website, listed below. I love hearing from my readers. You can email me from my website- look for the Contact tab on my page.
What inspires you to write?
I’m an artistic person at heart and I just have to write. There are these stories speaking to me and it’s my duty to get them down on paper and give them life.
Tell us about your writing process.
I’m a seat of the pantser all the way. I’ve tried to get more organized and do a detailed outline. It doesn’t work for me.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I listen in to their thoughts. I know their feelings, their emotions.
What advice would you give other writers?
I would advise other romance writers to join RWA. It was my first step on the journey of becoming an author. Get in a good critique group. Learn from it. Enter contests. And most importantly don’t give up.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I started writing when e book publishers were springing up all over. I decided that was my path and submitted to Hard Shell Word Factory, a small press I’d heard good things about.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think the future is wide open. E books will continue to be popular because in our society people want instant access to books.
