Sexy Saturday with Author Hunter Jones & September Ends. Enjoy!
First of all, thank you for being here for Sexy Saturday! I’m thrilled to have you. Before we take a look at your book, I thought it would be nice to get to know you better.
Tell us a little bit about yourself as a writer. Has writing always been your passion or did you stumble into it?
Thank you for asking Amber. Writing is something I’ve always done. I can’t really call it a passion. It’s always been there. I did literally stumble into full-time a year & a half ago when I ruptured my Achilles. With no mobility, you have to find something to do. I started writing and blogging to keep active. It’s opened a new chapter in my life, literally and metaphorically.
Tell us about your latest novel. Who are the main characters and would you like them if they were real people in your life?
The latest novel is September Ends. It’s the story of Liz Snow and her quest for peace. She falls in love with two very different men, Pete Hendrix and Jack O. Savage. Both men change her life, but not in any expected way.
Liz? I would be jealous of her looks but I would understand her quest for peace within her soul and her journey toward true love. We would be friends.
Pete? Pete is irresistible. I would fall for him in a heartbeat.
Jack? Jack is the most alluring character I know. He’s a rascal with a heart of gold. We would be the best of friends.
Do you have a writing routine? Did you do any research, and if so, what did it involve?
Excellent question! No real routine, just a commitment to write and complete something every day. As for research, I research everything…clothes, the areas I write about, the mental disorders the characters experience…everything!
I actually use a four page character outline, developed from my undergrad years spent studying lit and acting. Often, I will even know a characters great-great-grandparents before I start writing. This research gives me incredible insight into what each main character will react to certain events. Of course, anyone who has written a book knows that characters will surprise you once you write the story.
What was the biggest challenge in writing this book? Was there a time you became stuck or did the story flow easily?
September Ends flowed like a river. I have never experienced a greater artistic feeling.
I’m completing a novelette right now. This one is a challenge to me because it has a happily-ever-after/happily right now feel. For some reason this type story presents a true obstacle. Maybe that challenge is what makes me want to write it.
Is there a message in your novel that you’d like the readers to grasp?
In September Ends, there is a message that could only be told in today’s world. The moral of the story is to love right. Once you read the book, you will understand.
How did you pick the title? Do you know the title before writing or does it come to you only after the story unfolds?
Everyone has a time of year when things happen. For Liz Snow, it’s September. The song by Green Day evokes her feelings at a very crucial point of the novel.
Usually, I know the title of a work before I write it. I also complete the cover before the book or story is finished. Luckily, I work with Robin Ludwig of Robin Ludwig Designs. She understands. Her capacity to ‘get’ my vision of a story is remarkable.
It’s been my experience that some things come quite easily, like creating the setting, while other aspects of the craft can be challenging. What comes easily to you and what do you find more difficult?
The idea is the easy part. Putting the words together is when it becomes a problem! The worst part of all is editing. All that detail just wears me out. Luckily, I have an editor that is top tier. She and the BZ Hercules team push me to create the best possible manuscript.
If Hollywood called and gave you carte blanche for casting, which actors would you want to play the main characters of your novel?
Carte blanche? It would be fantastic to see new talent that believed in the story as much as I do.
Outside of writing, what do you do for fun?
Currently, Pinterest. J That website has saved me a ton of money that might otherwise be spent on shopping!
Let’s see…reading takes a bit of time. I love a good meal with a great red wine. Love shopping and travel. The best part of all is spending time just hanging out with the man of my dreams.
Thank you again for having me on your blog. Continued success to you!
And to you, too, Hunter! Let's take a closer look at "September Ends"

ON THE WILD HILL
We is the monster made to thrill
Whose arms and legs and guts enmesh
This craven frotwolf in your flesh
Shy innocence we lust to kill
Our ugliness all beauty eats
Such is our appetites and greed
We're in your rampant primal need
You can't resist our raging heats
And so succumb - my succubus
To my ferocious hirsuit will
Your Life's essential surge to spill
To sanctify my hid'ous pus
We promise we will set you free
Though some call me porn-og-raph-y

No Sweeter Dish
Mistress. All words of importance must be acknowledged with a capital letter.
I am your Mistress.
Mmmm I want to fuck you hard. Really let you know I want you.
Baby, I want to watch every move you make. I want to see your eyes look at me when I make love to you.
I slide onto your cock
down the shaft, slow
until you cum harder than you ever imagined in your life
I had to re-boot. Dammit!
Have I made you happy? Did you cum? Tell me.
Yes, you’ve been a very good boy & made me very happy tonight.
Oh yes, sweet Mistress.
When we meet, can you wear black lace panties for me? Something really feminine. Maybe a lacy little black thong. That would be sweet. Mmmm.
You know by now I’ll do anything you want. I wish we could be together tonight.
Me, too baby. I’m going to sleep now. Sweet dreams, sweet Liz. I need you here with me tonight. I promise I’ll be a very good boy.
Make my Mistress happy. Want to sign in again tomorrow night? I’ll be free for you.

BIO – HUNTER S. JONES
Writer. Exile on Peachtree Street.
Lover of all the finer things in life.
The art form I create when writing is much more interesting than anything you will ever know or learn about me. However, since you ask, I have lived in Tennessee and Georgia my entire life, except for one “lost summer” spent in Los Angeles. I was always a complex kid. My first published stories were for a local underground rock publication in Nashville. Since then, I have published articles on music, fashion, art, travel and history.
Currently, I have a music/entertainment blog @ExPatsPost.com. My debut novella, Fables of the Reconstruction, was published in 2012. I have a series of sexy vignettes on Amazon called Tales from a New Amsterdam. Moon Rose Publishing included my novella, Magic in Memphis, in their anthology, A Celtic Tapestry in March 2013. Magic in Memphis is currently available as a short story on Amazon.
Edgar Allan Poe and Anne Rice have always fascinated me, although like any Southern girl, I will always idolize Margaret Mitchell for writing Gone With The Wind. I also adore the works of John Grisham, and own a huge selection of his books. I live in Midtown Atlanta, Georgia with my husband, my books, too many clothes, too many shoes and way too many stacks of notepads and journals.
October 2013 saw the launch of a novel collaboration, SEPTEMBER ENDS, a contemporary fiction novel with romance, erotic and supernatural elements, bound by poetry. This novel is written with an anonymous English poet. He wants no attention. In blogs, he only asks to be recognized as the secretive collaborator from London. We have never met and we only communicate electronically and have no personal ties. His privacy and art are more important than anything. I can share with you that his published works are critically acclaimed.
