Feeling Golden

Tuesday, August 26th, 2014

So this is me first falling backwards on my bed in a bit of a shock (ignore the hair and lack of makeup)  and then a few minutes later…

fall out

with my DD showing no shame, doing a happy dance after I got the call that BOUNCE finaled in the New Jersey Romance Writers Golden Leaf Contest!

happy dance

I’ve never had one of my books final in a contest and to have my 1st be for the 1st book I’ve self-published is extra sweet. Thanks so much to all of you who have supported me with my writing. Feeling blessed!

All the best,

KMJ

Good Reading and Fan-Girling!

Thursday, May 1st, 2014

This week is flying by way too fast. I can’t Believe Today is May 1st. I’m trying my best to hold it back, but nothing I do is slowing the progress of time.

may 4

 

The good thing is that in less than a week I’ll be in New Orleans at the Romance Slam Jam conference & then the week after that I’ll be at the RT Booklovers Convention also in New Orleans.

So what could be bad about either of these super exciting events? Just the fact that I feel so not ready. I will literally be flying by the seat of my pants as I wander around as a newly published author, faking looking smooth, while trying not to fangirl geek-out over all other not fake the cool published authors in attendance at both events. This should be interesting. I’ll be sure to check in as often as I can either here, on FB or on Twitter so look out for me and please wish me luck.  Question: Which author would you fan-girl over?

And on another fun note, my Goodreads Giveaway ended last night and I was thrilled to have over 700 entries. Congrats to my Southern winners Hannah & Danielle. Your signed copies of BOUNCE are on the way! I appreciate all of you who entered. Thanks so much for Bouncing along with me!

A Goodreading Giveaway!

Thursday, April 17th, 2014

Thank you so much for the well wishes on my DH’s birthday yesterday and I huge thank you for the kind words on my BOUNCE unboxing video. I was so nervous about putting it up and not only because of my lack of hair and makeup (though that was quite nerve wracking) but I didn’t know quite how everyone would react to being on the 2 minute emotional roller coaster with me.  But you all were so kind and generous not to mention the hair or the makeup and you were totally understanding about the emotions and for that I’m truly grateful.

And now that BOUNCE is in print I can do a little happy dance celebrating and have some fun. So today I’m announcing my signed copy giveaway on GOODREADS. Just click enter for your chance to with 1 of 2 autographed copies from me… Whee! Don’t you love reading good?

Breezy Days & a Winner!

Friday, March 21st, 2014

Happy Friday and Happy 1st full day of Spring!

Well we’ve officially made it through, what to me at least felt like, the longest Winter ever. I can’t wait until the weather finally breaks and I can get out in the garden and do a little bit of planting in my tiny patch of soil out front. I also can’t wait until I can go back to writing on the porch with Jack my feet. But until that time comes I’ll be happy with turning the heat down a bit, opening up a window and catching a light breeze.

Now that said I wanted to also say a huges thanks to all who commented on Sofia Tate’s Breathless post and giveaway. The lucky winner is Priscilla Shay! Congrats Priscilla! Please contact me with your info and Sofia will get in touch with you about your prize.

Have a great weekend everyone!

 

All the best,

Thrilling Thursday & a Winner on ye old blog!

Thursday, February 27th, 2014

So this is the face of a creature that can care less about it the weekend coming.

Jack bored

Honestly, this has pretty much been Jack’s bored expression for the past few icy weeks, give or take a centimeter or two of fur in the eyes. If he could talk I’m sure all he’d say at this point is, “could I please have some warm sun, green grass and a haircut?” As for the days of the week and the rest of it? He cares not at all.

But me, I do, because the fact that it’s Thursday and this particular Thursday means that Scandal is coming back to TV! “Whoo to the OMG Hoo!”

And then as an added bonus I also get the opportunity to pick a winner in Irene Preston’s cool Mardi Gras Mask giveaway and thanks to Random number generator (since I couldn’t get Jack to show any picking enthusiasm) the winner is….

Angela Smith! Congratulations Angela. Please send me an email (just click over at my contact page with your contact info). And thank you so much to all who left a comment!

Enjoy Scandal tonight! I hope you all will be watching :-)

 

All the best,

KMJ

 

Weekend Wrap up and a Winner Announced!

Monday, February 24th, 2014

Happy Monday! I’m hoping you all had a wonderful weekend. Mine was pretty busy with the weather being a bit warmer. I will admit that a good part of it was spent with the wonder of watching some of our huge snow piles melt though they are far from gone. To highlight the fun of it all, I did have some chirping visitors come by who seemed just as hopeful for spring as I am. But with more cold weather and snow on the way it seems we both have a while to wait.  Other parts of the weekend were spent dealing with a very mischievous dog, who I hate to say it, kept the upper hand and had us on the ropes with chasing behind him. I will be victorious next time Jack.

Snippet Saturday – Threads of Desire & a pop up contest!

Saturday, February 22nd, 2014

Happy Saturday! Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend. Today I thought I’d share a bit from my latest in my Crimson Romance Series THREADS OF DESIRE ,and bonus, have a quickie pop up contest!

Threads of Desire cover Final

Nick whirled around, ignoring the fact that Gabby was in the bath. Naked and in the bath. Thank goodness for bubbles. But too bad the majority had fizzed out. Gabby quickly jerked her hands up to cover her breasts, sloshing water over the edge of the old claw foot tub. Her eyes swept down to make sure the essentials were covered. “Jeez, Nick, do you have no shame?”

He raised a dark brow by way of answer to her question. Clearly he was unfazed by the fact that he was standing there semi-nude in just his boxer-briefs, and she didn’t think he really cared that he’d been caught peeing. “Why do you think I turned around? I wasn’t going to just let this moment go to waste.”

Gabby’s felt her face heat—along with other parts of her body that she’d prefer stayed cool, thank you very much. But no, with Nicholas Ross around, of course, she was heated. Screw it. She’d afford herself the opportunity to sweep him a slow up and down. Might as well look her fill and see how he liked it. Besides, there was no way she was cowering. This was her apartment, her damned bathroom.

Gabby raised her eyes slowly and there he was, standing before her, leaning casually against the vanity and, despite his rough night, having the nerve to still resemble some sort of mahogany Adonis. Nick looked ready for his photo shoot—or maybe an early morning sculpting session, since everything about him said classic perfection. From his strongly planted feet, to his muscled calves to his well-toned runner’s thighs, up those climb-’em-like-a-ladder abs to his freaking ridiculous pecs… Gabby let out a steamy breath and licked her lips.

She got to his face, his morning scruff only adding to his appeal, and Gabby had to clamp down on her suddenly out-of-control hormones. But then she noticed the quirk come to the corner of his full lips, and her eyes came up to sharply meet his. “What do you find so funny?”

“Nothing. It’s just the way you were looking at me. I suddenly felt like I should put out a tip jar or something.”

Gabby felt her nostrils flare. “Oh, don’t flatter yourself, Mr. Ross. You’re not all that. No need to get a swelled head.” She let her eyes go south and cocked her head. “Or anything else.”

And now the contest: Tell me do you like reading in the tub? Where is your favorite place to relax with a good book.  

One lucky commenter will get a $15.00 Amazon gift card.  And for an extra entry please share the link on twitter or FB. Just leave a extra comment below to let me know you did (I trust you). So comment away (Oh and leave me your contact info here too) and maybe this weekend you’ll give some new Threads a try.

Winner will be announced on Monday! Thanks for commenting and sharing.

 

All the best,

Plan to Dream

Friday, February 7th, 2014

Happy Friday! Well we made it through another week and for me what a week it was. I made it through the 1st week with my DD away on her semester abroad in France.

Yes, I still hardly slept and yes, I worried like crazy and yes, I cried more than once, but I’m happy to report that my lovely daughter arrived and is settled with her host family and is happy and doing well. I got to Skype with her and meet her host family over Skype too and was thrilled that they are already treating her like a member of the family. Having 3 grown sons the mom said, “thank you for sending me a daughter”. This made me tear up again but also soothed my heart. Please continue to join me in wishing her well, love and safety and to send good thoughts to our new extended family in France!

dream

 

With the DD settled I got to thinking about my own dreams and goals for the next few months. I have so much going on with THREADS OF DESIRE coming out on Monday. MONDAY!! (cue mild freakout) You can pre-order it here. But after that my writing options are wide open. Luckily the book ideas are overflowing, but sadly for me time is not. That said, I brought a fantastic new Filofax A5 Domino to reign in both my time and my writing. So far I’m thrilled with it (and I blame my twitter/writing bud Dren for the new obsession with flair). Now to get to writing…

Tell me are you one to plan your dreams?

 

And a big thanks to all who commented and entered Alyssa Cole’s giveaway. Alyssa pulled a winner and it’s Reese Ryan! Thanks so much Reese. Alyssa will contact you with your prize.
