JR Ward Book Signing Recap
Posted by The Obscured Vixen on September 12, 2011
Anyone who’s read my blog knows JR Ward is my favorite author. JR Ward had a book signing on September 10, 2011 in Cincinnati and had a great Q&A session. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to make this signing, but I have some awesome friends that shared the info with me!
Here is the recap from this weekend:
Rhage and Mary are having a girl! Can you imagine coming to meet her dad? “Hi, this is my dad… and so is this!!! ROAR!!!” Can’t you just see when she starts dating and Daddy’s dragon tries to eat her dates. JR has written Mary & Rhage’s novella, but still needs to write Beth & Wrath’s. Can’t finish until she finishes Tohr’s book. No date yet for the novellas to be published.
Will Murhder get a book? ABSOLUTELY!!
Will Butch and V ever “get together”? JR smiled and said “who says they havent???”
Will the BDB and FA [series ever] merge? She said not totally but, you will continue to see the Brothers in the Angels. FA is suspence where BDB is an epic story.
What is Dog [from FA]? A small fury animal that likes kibble. Then JR said “That’s all I can say on that subject.”
Does Jim get a HEA? YES!!!!
Does Jim save Sissy? JR jumps up and down and says “I wanna tell!” Then she said, “YES he saves her.” The she sings “lets get it on”!!!
Who is the next [BDB] book? JR draws a heart and wrote a Q and B. She said “I think it’s their time, guys.” Everyone cheered cheer and she said, “WAIT!! I didnt say it was them, but it is time. If everything happens in Lover Reborn that should happen it will be them but LR is gonna PISS PEOPLE OFF!! Be warned! Two things have to happen in Tohr’s book to set it up Team Qhuay. Both must happen for their book to be ready. FYI, this is the first time she called it a book rather than a novella. Not sure if that means we get an actual book, but kind of makes me wonder…
Does JM have issues with Murhder coming back? “Wouldnt you?” He is gonna be much happier with him getting it on with someone else! However it will depend on how Murhder ‘comes in’ and then she laughed at herself.
Do the shadows get a book? “Yes!!” Would have a threesome? JR flipped. “EEWWWW…they are BROTHERS!!!”
Tohr’s mate is No’One. Very complex romance and get your tissued ready. His story will be told in 4 seasons.
Will there be another insider book? Yes but not for a few more books.
What about Lassiter? He will be in the next book TONS!!
Fave quote from Lover Reborn so far? Tohr talking about Rhage: “He is slapping his money maker like bread do.”
Will Layale FINALLY have sex? JR laughs and tells the “coming story” from Saratoga. Then says yes but we won’t be happy with who it is and how it happens. [Yeah! This made me smile inside : ) I was the one that asked the Layla question in Saratoga. I’m famous!!]
Have we seen the last of Lash? “YES. He is a shit. I hate him.”
What about the Scribe Virgin? “She needs a large dose of prozac.”
Will the Darius/JM secret be told? “NO. NEVER!” Cant be told. Xhex knows something is there but can’t tell what. He will still have seizures.
Will there be a movie? JR has no control if their is a movie made. She only has control out of the books. However, she said where will they find men with “attributes” of the Brothers? “You gonna stick a bicycle pump up their ass to blow them up? Casting would be difficult and she doesnt want her readers upset.”
Does the training return at the compound? Yes but people need to return to Caldwell.
What is gonna stop the Bastards? She said 1 of 2 things: humans find them OR the Brothers join with with the sympaths! That would chill them the fuck out!
Will Wrath see again? No.
Why do the Brothers hate Lassiter? “He is a jackass!! He is an ass. He is a dick. He is an angel without compassion.” JR said he was sent back to help Tohr regain compassion but also to help him find some.
The music JR selects comes from what she listens to. “I am not the typical rap/hip hop listener, but I love it. I like Eminem, Tupac, etc.”
Who is your favorite female? JR is a lot like Marissa, but feels closest to Beth.
Will we see Qhuinn’s brother again? Very interesting place is where he is being held. She wonders if he is a lesser now…
Does No’One have a name? Yes, and it will be revealed in Tohr’s book.
Is No’One Throe’s sister? JR smiles and said, “I am sorry. The English language has escaped me!”
Why has the Omega been quiet in the last book? She said he was quiet in the books, but not in activity.
What is the longest book so far? JR said, “Rehv is swinging his dick in pride that his is the longest. The more I play with Tohr, the longer he gets.” Which crackd herself up. Tohr’s book will be at least 700 pages. She is about half way through it now.
Will Qhuinn get his piercings back, or is he done with them? He is still trying to find himself cause he isn’t comfortable in his own skin like Blay is with being gay. She said when he finds himself, the piercings will return. However, she pointed out not ALL his piercings are gone!
Will there be a prequel for Darius? No, because she cant do a happy ending.
Does Layla lose her virginity to Qhuinn? JR smiles and won’t answer the question. She then said that Qhuinn doesnt understand why relationships with females never satisfied him.
How is your relationship with V? It is better after Unleashed but he is a smart ass stubborn SOB so she will always want to strangle him. When someone mentioned how he treated Jane in Unleashed she defended him and said Jane KNEW what she was mated to so she either had to forgive him or move the fuck on!
Which book is your favorite? The book I am working on now cuz I know it isn’t fucked up yet!
Do you have authors or other inspiration for writing? Wrath was the first word out of her mouth. Then said no other authors inspire her. She is a writer and must write each and every day.
How many BDB books will you write? JR will write as many books as her readers will continue to buy.
There will be an awesome new male introduced in Lover Reborn named Asail.
Is Wrath white or African American? First, he isn’t a human. Nor is he or any of the brothers pasty-ass white boys. They are tanned skinned, so not white or black.
Zsadist is her favorite character.
When will Nalla find out about Zsadist’s history and what will be her reaction? She will read about it. This will throw Z back into the world of the Mistress again. Z will always worry about how Nalla sees him now. Also, how any male she would mate with would see him. Never gave a total answer about Nalla’s reaction, but seemed like it wouldn’t be good.
Payne & Manny’s book and Tohr’s book were happening at the same time. There was much overlapping in action that occurred, so Payne & Manny’s book focused mostly on them. Tohr’s book will have more focus on the Brothers. Will see more of the Brothers together in Tohr’s book. (yeah!) Tohr is the last original Brother.
How did you pick a dragon for Rhage? When she first saw Rhage he took off his shirt & she saw the dragon tattoo moving on his back.
Devina & Adrian thing – She is a parasite and she is in Adrian. Must keep reading to find out if she get Adrian.
Who is next for Fallen Angel series? You will know at the end of Envy.
Does Layla losing her virginity have anything to do with Qhuinn’s vision? Big no answer, but again I will guess yes based on body language.
