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
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.

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. ❤️

Glynis Astie, chick lit author extraordinaire, has a new book out! You need to read it! No, seriously, I had the honor of being one of Glynis’ beta readers, so I know what I’m talking about. It’s a fun, touching read about an introvert, well, gamer girl, who has to find as much courage in her real life as she displays in her beloved computer game, Spellbound, to achieve her happily-ever-after with hottie Morgan Chandler. Here’s a little sample of Gamer Girl… Read the rest of this entry

Two weeks ago I was spitting nails about the horrible season ender of Sleepy Hollow. Yeah, yeah, spoiler alert. Everyone should know this by now: Abbie Mills, the main character, was killed off. You can read my reaction to it here—I can’t bear to go through it all again.
As is probably apparent in my previous blog post, I was livid at not only the actual choice to kill Abbie off, but also the sheer ineptitude with which it was done. As a writer, I boggled at the ham-fisted fashioning of the season finale (series finale? at this point I hope so)…actually, at the entire trajectory of the show after the creators left at the end of the first season.
I’m still pissed—yes, still! it was that poorly done!—but once I started thinking about the why of it all, my rage got even hotter. So here’s another blog post, rant No. 2. Buckle up, and don’t say I didn’t warn you. Read the rest of this entry
