Life Summary Since Last Post

  • Kids are now 7 & 9. They can put their own clothes on and I don’t have to fumble with carseats anymore.
  • Residence is now in the woodsy foothills of the Cascades. I do not miss Seattle, but when people ask where I live, I still say Seattle.
  • My number of pets has quintupled.
    • My grumpy old Chihuahua-Terrier mix, Cricket, now has a sister. Meet chihuahua-beagle mix Buffy.Buffy
    • We also gained a cuddly mouser Fluffy and two guinea pigs named Giblet and Sosage. Sosage is still coming to terms with his new name after my son changed it from Gravy.
  • I can no longer eat dairy, sugar, or yeast. On the plus side, I am constantly craving dairy, sugar, and yeast.
  • I am now blonde. (I summoned a smile even though everyone else was having pizza and I was having salad.)Blonde
  • I still watch American Idol and am currently quite pleased with this season’s top 6 contestants. Personally, I’d be content with any of these awesome singers as American Idol, but if I had my way, it’d be Jeremiah.

Writing Summary

  • Highland Wishes goes to Germany! With the help of talented translator Barbara Grüner I’ve published all four books on Amazon.de in Kindle Select. A little trivia for you: Germans love Kindle Select! I make more moolah on page-reads for my Highland-Sehnsucht series than I do on ebook sales.Ich Wünsch Mir Einen Highlander - 3D_new
  • The amazingly talented and super wonderful Teresa Conner at WolfSparrow Covers rebranded my Love Under Construction series (longtime fans will know this series as Blue Collar Boyfriends). Authors, check out Teresa’s premades store! She has GORGEOUS covers available for a STEAL! In fact, I’ve bought several from her and use the covers as inspiration for future works.LUC Facebook ad
  • My muse is giving me fits. There are SO many things I want to write! The problem? There aren’t enough hours in the day!
    • More Highlanders (Timothy the albino with Constance’s twin, Leslie, Neil the wolf war chieftan, and more)
    • Modern twists on fairy tales (think mob princess saves the knight in shining armor)
    • Sci-fi romance (think sexy aliens and abducted women in need of luvin’)

  1. Congrats Jessi. On the blond hair, on the growing children, on the new pets, and boo on no goodness to eat. I loved reading this blog. I like your new book covers although it took a minute for me to figure out the word Tempt for some reason. I don’t “do” aliens but everything else sounds fabulous. Sort of love the modern twist on the fairy tale thing. Happy to have you back in the game!

    And congrats on the German translation thing. Who knew??

    *waves* Good to see you. Looking good. Love the new covers. Very nice to look at, and the stories are pretty good too. Sci-fi? Cool. Like those aliens abducting women stories. Okay, so I am a bit kinky. Not a fan of Highlander stories, but everything else, bring it on! Although I have been to Germany, I don’t read the language. But congrats on the translations. As for where I am from, if you will remember, you met me last year in Michigan with Bronwyn and Jess, and Jenny. Fun day.

      Of COURSE I remember you! And your awesome yellow crocheted shirt that made me smile!

      The Germans have been amazing readers! They have a “Goodreads” over there called Lovelybooks, and I did a reading circle on there for each of my Highlander books. The readers were honest and kind and fun to interact with. Mostly, they wrote icomments n Engish, but when they wrote in German, Google translator was sufficient for me to get the gist.

      Have a great weekend!
