Debt by Nina G. Jones —Top Reads Published in 2014 —Interview


I don’t know what I was thinking when I hired someone to attack me. Maybe I was bored, or lonely, or there was a void so deep inside of me that I needed something explosive to fill it. 

It was supposed to be safe. A thrill. A way to break through the monotony of everyday life. It was an illusion of danger that I could walk away from as soon as it was over. 

Except that it wasn’t. Because I had been in danger long before I ever invited it into my life. 


My mission is almost complete. The bubbling boil of vengeance that heats my blood might finally simmer. 

She is the last piece of the puzzle. Once I destroy her, everyone who ever hurt me will have paid their debt. 

It was supposed to be quick and easy, but as soon as I met her it got complicated. 

Very complicated.

How did the idea for this book first come to you?
I was joking with a friend about how we love some book boyfriends that would terrify us in real life. Then the conversation somehow turned to me asking: what if there was a service where you could order someone to basically rape you. Because, let's be honest, most dark erotica has a rape-y element to it. That concept of taking a fantasy that most would not actually want to become a reality, but creating a character who wanted to take that leap and then what would become of her.

Did you know how you wanted it all to go from the beginning or did it change as you were writing?
I usually outline important events that I want to occur (especially with a complex plot). However, a lot of twists occur to me as I write and I might adjust the timeline accordingly. Usually, by the time I am writing the middle, I know everything that needs to occur and have it outlined somewhere.

Are you currently working on anything? If so can you tell us about it?
Yes. I am working on a new adult romance called, IF. It will be written under N.G. Jones, a version of my pen name to indicate that this will not be erotica (it might have some sex, but it will not be central to the plot).
I made a sarcastic comment a year ago about people who complained about rich heroes in romance. Something along the lines of: Next time, I'll write about the young ingenue who falls in love with the homeless guy in front of her building.
