In the Top 100!

Thanks to everyone who's purchased a copy of Shots on Net during this first week of publication.

As of today, Shots on Net broke into the Top 100 of sports genre fiction on Amazon. I'm mixed in with the likes of Stephen King and James Patterson, which is pretty awesome if you ask me!


  1. Jay,

    I would still love to read both your books Play the Man and Shots on Net, but I don't own a Kindle and don't plan to buy one. Will your books be printed sometime soon? I really hope so!

    Have a great day

    1. Hey, Judith! I don't have any immediate plans to print the books. Fortunately, you don't need a Kindle to read the books. All you need to do is download the Kindle app, which you can do on a tablet, smartphone, or computer.

      If that doesn't help, shoot me an e-mail ( and we'll figure out something for you. :)

      Thanks for your support!

  2. Hi, I just found your blog and books from Mel Ting's blog. I got Shots on Net and read it all evening, while watching games of my two fav hockey teams, I couldn't put it down long enough to give them full attention! But I have to say the ending killed me. It just abruptly ended and I felt rather unsatisfied. What happens next for Shay and Kevin? Are you writing another book about them? You better be!!!!

    I quite enjoyed the book, I read it straight through because I had to find out what happened with them. I did notice several editing issues, so you might want to give it another read through. Things like wrong tenses of verbs, missing words, a misspelled word, some wrong words. But it's wasn't too bad that I couldn't enjoy the plot. I'm going to look into your other book. Although I hope it doesn't end the same way!

    1. Thanks, AB, for reading the book and giving me your thoughts on it. You're one of the first feedbacks I've gotten on it, and I really appreciate it. I'm sorry if you felt unsatisfied with the ending. You might like Play the Man more, because the ending is pretty concrete while still leaving some things open ended.

      Thanks again! I love new readers, and every writer LOVES feedback. You made my Thanksgiving!

Kissing 2018 Goodbye / Bring It On, 2019!

Listen. New Years always freaks me out. Any occasion that encourages me to look back at the past while simultaneously looking toward the future is just... super stressful. I've said it before (I say it at the end of every year!) that December is crazy between work and the holidays and social engagements.

My natural tendency is to think about all the things I didn't do and chalk it up as failing to accomplish my goals. As I reflected on my 2018, I went back to read last year's blog post about my 2018 resolutions, and I kept it simple last year: rein in my spending. And, in some aspects, I accomplished that. I cut down on ordering pizza when I felt too lazy to cook, I didn't add (very much) to my TBR pile by buying books I knew I wouldn't immediately start reading, and I only saw a handful of movies in the theatre (of course I made exceptions for Marvel movies, and my mom and I went to see Book Club because it looked too good).

But I totally fell flat on the writing …

Dude. May. WTF.

May has been... an interesting month so far (and we're only one-third of the way through. Phew!).

If you're friends with some authors on Facebook or Twitter,  you've probably seen the insanity and the accompanying hashtags. It's not my intention here to go into the matter; there are plenty of places online to get the details. And while I did a little rage-venting on my own profile, I don't want to publicly feed into this riotous frenzy while the courts and attorneys are working toward a resolution. I do, however, want to take a moment to say that the indie author community is a supportive, close-knit group that I'm proud to be a part of. And it's because of readers like you, who choose to support not only myself but so many authors who work hard and try to give you the best possible books.

Okay, moving on.

So, what have I been up to? Well, I've been buzzing around, prepping for my trip to Philly this weekend. I'll be at Unmask the Romance in Phoeni…

Author Spotlight: Melanie Ting

Melanie Ting and I go way back, to when we were anonymous authors posting serialized stories on-line. We talked about writing and bonded over hockey and cats—which, incidentally, are two of Mel's favorite writing topics. She's just released her second full-length novel entitled Hockey Is My Boyfriend, Part One. The synapsis:

Wouldn’t it be great if you could tell exactly what a guy was like… before you went on a date with him? Kelly Tanaka can. After years of playing hockey with guys, she believes that how a guy acts on the ice is a good indicator of how he’ll be as a boyfriend.

So far, she’s only used this superpower to help her girlfriends, because Kelly’s not really into dating. However, when blond and beautiful Nicklas Ericcson comes along, her theories are put to the test. But then tall, dark, and smoking Phil Davidson insists he’s a better hockey player and a better potential boyfriend. What’s Kelly to do?

Hockey Is My Boyfriend is a smart and funny journey into…
