The Twisted Routes of My Brain

People ask where authors come up with their ideas. Here’s an example of the strange and tenuous connections that the result in a story.

Yesterday, I went to SOKY Book Fest in Bowling Green, KY. While I was there I met several romance authors who will be attending the Romance Writers of America national conference in Nashville this summer. During the conference, several of the writers were talking about past job experiences, which for me, included a former colleague who made my life kind of difficult. We also talked about our inspirations, which includes my mother. We got back from Bowling Green, got the kids settled down. I noticed that the fridge was looking like a bad science project, so I’m going to need to clean it out soon.

So all of these elements mixed together while I was sleeping and became the following dream: My former co-worker was loading his stuff into a van because he was going to have to drive down to Nashville with my mom (who was glaring at him like she could make him burst into flames with the power of her mind.) And the whole time, I was packing dirty Tupperware into the van.

And that's how my mind works. (Shudder.)

One Step Closer to World Domination...

It's time to start amassing my evil, but useless, minions and robot army, because my plans for global takeover have begun!

I'm very pleased to announce that the Jane Jameson novels will be translated into several languages, including

German, translated by Egmont LYX.

French, translated by Bibliotheque Interdite.

Turkish, translated by Pegasus Yayincilik, TIC. San. Ltd. STI.

The Countdown is On

OK, so the countdown to AND ONE LAST THING is three months.

To that end, I give you my new cover!

And here's where the shameless plea comes in. I could use some help promoting the book. I haven't promoted a "purely" romance novel before. I'm unknown to a lot of romance readers who prefer non-supernatural stories. Also I don't know that many non-supernatural review sites and blogs. If you know of a good one, I would really appreciate a heads up. Or even better, if you could request that the blog review AND ONE LAST THING, I'll arrange for an ARC to be sent to them. If you feel inclined, leave your suggestions in the comment section.

And you, the people who follow my blog and read my books, are probably the most powerful weapons in my arsenal. Tell your friends, tell your family. Tell your fellow readers about this wacky author who's trying her first non-.
fangy plotline.

The payoff? Well, nothing material. But if AND ONE LAST THING is successful, it puts me one step closer to being able to write full-time and churning these books out a lot faster.
