The story is ultimately a romance, however it covers broader themes of sexuality, desire and the sometimes darker side of love. However, we are of course aware of the popularity of the series, and we would be delighted if Eighty Days Yellow is appreciated by the fans of Fifty Shades.
The EL James novels have been criticised for the quality of the prose, but praised for the page-turning romance. We hope that with Eighty Days, we have retained the same sense of a thrilling love story, but we also hope that the quality of the writing will be appreciated.
How do you go about your writing process with two authors? Perhaps I wanted to give Summer a skill that I never possessed. The ironic thing is that neither of us has ever played a musical instrument!
Where did the inspiration for the two central characters come from? The article featured a young musician who was gifted a very expensive instrument in exchange for agreeing to play a small number of concerts for her benefactor and his acquaintances. I ripped it out of the paper and it sat in my handbag for several weeks, until I discussed the idea with the other half of Vina Jackson and we decided to write the story together, from both points of view, and it moved into a very different sphere altogether.
Why did you decide to use a musician and professor as your two central protagonists? We chose a professor as we wanted to move away from the very traditional and perhaps cliched idea of a wealthy entrepreneur or businessman.
We wanted Dominik to have extra depth and realism as a character. What can we expect from the two follow on novels in September and October?
But, will it last? How difficult is it to write sex sucessfully? All strong human emotions - happiness, grief, love, etc - are difficult to write about successfully. And sex is really just another expression of a human emotion. Will the language used be too shocking, too euphemistic, or too anatomical?
As each reader has their own, very specific and personal ways of relating to sex, will they find a scene that is intended to be erotic a turn on, or a turn off? In Eighty Days Yellow, the sex is an integral part of the story. Therefore we hope that the sex scenes fit organically into the story and that even our more reserved readers will appreciate that the sex is necessary for plot development.
How did you develop the sexual tension between Summer and Dominik effectively? Tension is created by the push and pull between the chapters. As we move from one point of view to the other, the reader is left hanging, wondering what Summer or Dominik will do next. We tried not to race into it, but rather to leave the reader with doubts, wondering what would happen to the main characters and waiting and hoping for the moment that they might or might not end up together.
I opened my eyes and saw him leaning over me. I could hear it all the way down the street! He was still wearing half of his business suit, a crisp white shirt, leather belt and dark-navy trousers with a very thin pinstripe, the matching jacket slung over one arm. He was gripping the handle of his wheelie case tightly. His case was slick with rain, rivulets running down the side and pooling onto the floor alongside my thigh. The bottoms of his trousers were wet where his umbrella had not been able to shield him, and were stuck to his calves.

Eighty Days of Yellow by Vina Jackson
