You Have GOT To See This New Cover!

Standard

A is for awesomeOkay, so remember, like a couple of months ago when I republished my three standalone romcoms with brand-spankin’-new covers? Yeah, that was awesome. Well, I’m doing more! Read the rest of this entry

Oh, We’re Rockin’ Now!

Standard

Let’s rock ‘n’ roll, kiddies! I’ve got two major publishing milestones happening to-day, and I can’t wait to tell you all about them!

What’s going on? Well, I’ll tell you! Read the rest of this entry

Thief! J’accuse!

Standard

Good gravy! Today I learned that an icon, someone we all look up to for her strength, pluckiness, perseverance, and belief in true love is a doggone thief. J’accuse! I have a book to write, but I must get this out or it will eat at me for the rest of my days. Or at least until I have another cup of coffee. Read the rest of this entry

Virtual Beach Trip: Safer and Cheaper!

Standard

Trying times, my friends. Trying times. Has your vacation been postponed? Are you stuck in the house with screaming kids? (Wait—is that you screaming instead?) Well, fear not. I have the perfect, inexpensive escape for you! Read the rest of this entry

Hey Now, What’s Old Is New Again!

Standard

Gather ’round, kids—it’s story time! Once upon a time, in another world, Jayne quit her full-time associate editor job at a university to become a stay-at-home mom. She did some freelance editing and writing, but when her main clients folded, she wasn’t sure she’d be able to rebuild and carry on. Some weird guy, now known as the wasband, made a suggestion.

And Yet Here It Is

Standard

This is not the best time for it, of course—to release a book (in this case, rerelease) and shout about it, all happy-like. While the world burns? How does one dare? And for a romantic comedy, of all things!

I’d rather not dare, not gonna lie. Or, rather, I desperately wish these were better times, more in accordance with a message like “Hey, are you going on vacation? Want a great beach read? Have I got a romcom for you!”

Well, this is not that summer. We have a lot of business to take care of, and take care of it we shall. Wrongs need to be righted, the poison of racism needs to be excised from the entrenched norms of our society, and a literal pestilence needs to be eradicated. We can do this. We can and we will. If you’re not certain, these 40 seconds might be worth a watch:

And if you need a break, it’s okay to take one. If you enjoy reading romantic comedies, maybe you’ll want to pick up YOUR NEW BEST FRIEND. It’s only $3.99 for Kindle, and it’s in Kindle Unlimited as well. It’s light, it’s happy, it takes place in a beach town. So if this is not the year for summer vacations, you can take one virtually. Read more here, and there’s a buy link as well.

Okay, that should do it for now. I’ll have more news as the summer goes on. Keeping everyone in my thoughts till then. ❤️

On Reinvention; Or, Wait A Minute—I Have To Do This All Over Again?

Standard

Hi there. So if you’ve been following the adventure that is My Writing Career, you might already know that I took an involuntary break. My last book, Your New Best Friend, came out in 2017. I was thrilled with it, from the cover to the story to the fact that it earned a Publishers Weekly starred review and was a finalist in the RWA Contemporary Romance Writer’s Stiletto Contest. I was itching to follow it up with my next romcom, which was already percolating in my brain. And then what happened? Life, actually. That little stinker.
