2015 Update

How is it possible that 2015 is halfway over? Perhaps I should think of it as an optimist would: there's still six months left in 2015. I should make the most of these next six months!


So far this year, I've managed to get Play the Man re-released with its new cover. Now, all my novels are available as both eBooks and paperbacks! As an author, let me tell you, there's nothing better than seeing your name in print!




My other big accomplishment was getting "A Valuable Trade" released independently. This was my submission to Seduced by the Game, the cancer charity anthology that raised over $18,000 for Hockey Fights Cancer! Today was the release day; "A Valuable Trade" is available (exclusively as an eBook) from the following vendors and subscription services:


Also, I'm happy to announce that my eBooks have been released through a couple of new vendors, and all the purchase links are updated on this very blog. I like giving my readers options!
So what's on the agenda for the rest of the 2015?

Well, I'm currently devoting my writing time to the next installation of the Dallas Comets seriesthat's right, the Comets are getting their own series! For now, I'm keeping that title and hockey player to myself.

And lastly, yes, I'm still working on The Back Up, even if it is on the back burner (for now, at least). I have full intention of getting that novel published by the end of the year. I'm going to work as hard as I have to make sure that happens.

If you haven't signed up for my newsletter, now would be a good time to do so, since I'll be sending out updates, sneak peeks, and giveaways that only subscribers will be privy to! The link is in the right-hand column, so don't be shy. The summer newsletter will be sent out any day now!

Thanks for tuning in. See you next month,

Jay

If April Showers Bring May Flowers, Do May Flowers Bring June Bugs?

Y'all. May was a crazy month. I had so much fun in Niagara Falls and Gettysburg, attending those two author events (Romancing the Falls and Rockin' Romance Readers, respectively). Mama J came with me, and we had a blast hanging out with  Lisa B. Kamps  again, meeting Christine and Victoria of Sweet & Sassy Reads , and loading up our shelves with books by new-to-us authors! Oh yeah, and I had a book come out, too. :) So even though May was awesome, I'm a little bit glad it's over. I'm still celebrating my latest release, but I'm also getting to work on what's to come. Things I'm up to: Proofing the paperback copy of  Dump and Chase  before announcing that paperbacks are for sale! Working on getting the paperback for  "Christmas Crosscheck"  up and hopefully available for pre-order (I hear it's kind of complicated; for those in the know, Amazon changed their paperback process and I hear some people aren't able to have pre

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

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. Bu
