Wattpad’s ‘Queen J’ on Writing, Fans and Future Plans (An Interview with Jonaxx)

by Pauline P

Here at bookbed, we obviously like anything that involves words – books, stories, status updates, ideas, comments, shares, among others. But beyond that, what we like even more is when you readers enjoy the things that we share and talk about here.

This is why when we saw how much you loved Pauline P’s review of Until Trilogy, we thought we’d give you a treat. Here’s a quick peek into Jonaxx’s world as a writer. Enjoy!

INSPIRATIONS

Hello, Jonah! We are so excited to have you here. Thank you for agreeing to this interview and congratulations on your writing career, so far. I especially enjoyed your Until TrilogyComing from that, could you talk about what inspires you to write? Are there any books your stories are inspired from?

Depends, actually. I wrote Baka Sakali 1 right after I’ve read Fifty Shades of Grey. Although, walang pagkakapareho ang dalawa pero parang Fifty Shades pushed me to write a new genre, [which is] non-teen fic.

Do you have any favorite reads outside the genre you always write about?

I like metaphysical and dystopian fiction.

Is there any romance novel you wish ended differently? How would you rewrite the ending?

I wish to rewrite Romeo and Juliet. Haha. Kidding. But there was one time [when] I [think I] saw its newest movie adaptation and that came to me. Na someday, I’m going to rewrite that love story.

ON BEING QUEEN J AND INTERACTING WITH FANS

You’re being dubbed as “Queen J” and “The Royal Writer.” How does that make you feel as a writer? Have you ever thought you’d garner this huge fan base?

Nope. I did not write for fame. I’m writing because it’s my stress reliever sa mga hectic days ko. It’s my sort of entertainment. So whatever I write, it’s not to please the readers, it is to please myself.

How does being active and engaging with fans online affect your writing process in any way?

I am not anymore really active in terms of interacting with my readers. Kasi kinakain ng pagsusulat ang oras ko kaya imbes na makipag-interact ay nagsusulat ako.

THE NEXT CHAPTER

What are your top three stories you wish to be published?

Until Trilogy, Worthless and Why Do You Hate Me.

Would you like your works to be adapted on the silver screen or TV? If yes, which of your works and why?

If there’s a great opportunity, then why not? I’d like Mapapansin Kaya to be adapted on the screen. Masyado kasing magarbo at gusto kong paghahandaan talaga ng husto.

Are you still going to continue writing when you decided to establish a family in the future?

Yes, [as I said] it is my stress reliever. The demons in my head won’t let me sleep at night if I don’t write them down. ☁
