Big Things Are Happening [Finally]!

It's been a while since I've blogged, mostly because I had nothing to say. But I'm happy to say that now that I do!



I've hit a major breakthrough with Dump and Chase, book #5. It's almost done! Just a few more chapters to go, and then it goes out to alpha/beta readers, and then it'll go out for ARCs. (Are you a member of my ARC team? If not, you can still sign up!)

What does that mean as far as a release date? End of May, early June. I'll know more once the chapters are done and I get back the initial feedback.

You guys have no idea how good it finally feels to have a more concrete idea of when this book will be out (I've only been writing it since... 2017!) I've fought through a lot of impostor syndrome along the way; it's hard to feel like a writer when the writing isn't happening like you want it to. I've barely been on social media as a result.

And just in time! Because "Christmas Crosscheck" is releasing on its own on July 25 for a Christmas in July celebration! "Christmas Crosscheck" was my contribution to the USA TODAY bestseller, Hockey Holidays. On July 25, the story will be available again as book #6 of the Dallas Comets series—including some additional chapters. Want to know how Christmas Day unfolds for Bryan and Georgiana? You'll have to read it to find out!

Buy links will be coming soon, in the next few weeks. Keep an eye out on social media so you can preorder! Also, links will go out via my newsletter, so you can sign up for that as well if you aren't already.

After that, I'm taking a mini-break from the Comets to work on a top-secret trilogy set. Anticipated release will be in fall/winter 2019. I still have a lot of kinks to work out there though, so that's all you'll be getting from me on that subject for a while.

I hope y'all can sit tight just a little while longer, because I'm very close to sharing Ben and Lennox's story. There's something different about this one, something special, and I hope you'll think the wait was worth it.

Hang tight,

Jaymee

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 …

Remember Me?

*Knock, knock*

Anybody out there?

Or, better yet, anybody remember me?

It's Jay! I haven't completely disappeared, or fallen off the face of the earth. I took a break from posting stories here on Blogger in order to try my hand at writing novels. So many of you, my lovely devoted readers, have left me comments saying that my writing's just as good--sometimes better!--than the books you've read. I especially received a lot of encouragement from fellow Blogger Melanie Ting, who has successfully e-published her first story! So I'm trying my hand at writing full-length novels, and I have lots of new material that I'm e-publishing through Amazon through 2013.

First up, I'm publishing Play the Man, a reworked version of A Sharp Contrast. I changed the characters and updated the story, and I'm really happy with the finished product. Here's a peek at the cover:

 I love it! What do you think?
The story will go live on Amazon later tonight (just search for Ja…

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…
