Finally! The News You've Been Wanting to Read...

Happy August 1st! Usually I'd be lamenting that another month has come and gone, but that will not be the case today. You see, July was a busy month, and I've set a date for Breakout Play to release! Are you ready? It'll be coming to you on... *drum roll* August 22!

That's three weeks from today!

I'm working on getting all the preorder links. Once I have them, I'll blast them all over social media. You won't be able to miss your opportunity to preorder.

Be sure to add Breakout Play to your Goodreads to-read list.

Want a chance to read Adam and Ally's story before August 22? It's possible as long as you're signed up to be a part of my ARC group. If you aren't and would like to be, find out more info and how to sign up here.

I'm also giving my newsletter subscribers a chance to read Breakout Play for FREE. Yes, that's right. I feel awful about how far back this release date has gotten pushed, so I want to make it up to my fans. If you aren't on my mailing list, here's where you can do that. To get in on this offer, though, you have to be signed up by August 8, 2016.

So that's one big announcement on the books. I have another one, too!

Next year, I'll be doing my first author signing. I'm part of Angels and Sirens 2017, which takes place on Saturday, March 4, at the Meadows Casino in Washington, PA. So if you are in the Pittsburgh area or are planning to be in the spring, this is not something you want to miss.

Not only will I be there, but so many other authors will be too—including some hockey romance authors who I know or am excited to meet! Melody Heck Gatto, Lisa B. Kamps, Jennifer Lazaris, V.L. Locey, Samantha Wayland, and probably others I'm forgetting.

I'll be giving away tickets closer to the event. Tickets can also be purchased here.

Wow, can you believe it? What a year 2016 is turning out to be. It sure was slow going in the first half, but things are finally happening in the second.

Keeping Up With the Jacobses:
August 2016

  • Wednesday, August 3: I'll be hanging out with V.L. Locey and friends at her Tape to Tape release party on Facebook. This should be a really fun party, and I can tell just by looking at the list of authors taking over throughout the night.
  • Monday, August 15: I'm going to celebrate Melody Heck Gatto's newest Renegades release Shutout with her and some other awesome hockey romance authors during her release party on Facebook. I'm taking over for an hour starting at 7:00pm. You'll need to be a part of the Tall, Dom, and Dirty group to attend and participate.
  • Monday, August 22: I'll be in the Sin Bin and hanging out on social media ALL DAY as I celebrate the release of Breakout Play
  • Tuesday, August 23: I'm going to be a part of Toni Anderson's iBook Club for August! The party is on Tuesday the 23rd. I will be with several other awesome authors celebrating the theme of Sweet Romance and giving away iBooks of Breakout Play. You'll also have a chance to enter to win a $100 iTunes giftcard, so you're definitely going to want to check out the event and Facebook group.

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…
