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!

My 2020 Vision

What am I doing writing about 2020 when we’re already one week into February?

Well, y’all, let me tell just how crazy everything has been lately!

Let me just recap my January for you:
On Friday, January 3rd, I had my on-site interview with a company down in Pittsburgh for an open position.On Tuesday, January 7th, I got the offer from HR that, pending a satisfactory background check and drug test, I was hired.On Friday, January 10th, I got the call from the hiring manager that I cleared everything, and we scheduled my first day of work.On Monday, January 13th, I turned in my two-weeks notice at my now former job.And on Tuesday, January 28th, I began my first day of work in downtown Pittsburgh. As you can see from that list, this all happened so fast. My last two weeks at my prior job were spent trying to get the entire office organized and everyone informed on my responsibilities and what they’d have to take over. After 11 years, 7 months there, the list was long. But on my last day, my…

Classy, Crafty, and Super Sassy

After releasing two books in the span of two months, I've been doing a bunch of different things. Some of it is working on what I've been calling my "Top Secret Project." I think it's gonna be a trilogy, taking place on a new team.

I'm trying to get the entire trilogy ready for a quick release schedule. If I can manage it, I'll have it out by the end of the year, but no guarantees!

I've also been enjoying my summer! Last year, I felt like I had wasted my summer. I didn't want that to happen this year. So I instituted Pool Day, which was every Wednesday at the community pool (weather permitting, of course).

I went to see one of my favorite bands, Jimmy Eat World. I went to the zoo with my friend and her little one. I've already been to the Pittsburgh Renaissance Festival once, and I'm sure I will be going again.

What else? I've tackled a huge project that's been sitting on my shelf for far too long. What's that? Scrapbooking my…

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 …
