Ever feel like this dog?
If you said “Yes, today”, then we’re on the same page.
I have one caveat. Can we replace that cigarette with something healthier? Twizzlers? Pixie Stix?
Happy Wednesday! So excited about this post!!!
See, Kate Meader and I had this FAB idea to have our heroes interview each other. Yup. My sexy billionaire hero, Shane August from Tempting the Billionaire vs. Kate’s hot British chef from Feel the Heat (Now available!)
So, I made this cool graphic:
And this one:
And made up a super cool blog post for my first EVAH Hero2Hero interview…
Then Grand Central was so excited about the feature, they shipped us over to the uber-popular Maryse’s Book Blog to expose us to more traffic.
SO GET OVER THERE!
There are PRIZES and Heroes! What more could you want?
~Jess (& Kate!)
I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the SLEW of authors I met while at RT! You guys…imagine being in a room with all your favorite creators. Super cool! What’s better is they are ALL approachable. I love RT!
Here is photographic proof that these authors really do exist and I met them:
More people I met, but cannot prove:
…and that’s not all! I’ll keep adding to as I remember each of you — and if I ran into you and you’re not here, poke me and be all “HEY! WHERE AM I ON YOUR LIST OF AWESOME?!”
I will apologize and add you immediately. Guaranteed.
So, I’ve been suspiciously AWOL this entire last week. Did you notice? If not, lie and say you did. If you were wondering why, it’s because I went to a convention by Romantic Times magazine and spent five fun-filled days hob-nobbing with readers, writers, editors, and publishers.
How cool is that?!
If you said “VERY!”, then extra points for you.
Here are a few photo-highlights of the trip:
I met my agent!
I met my editor!
I met E.L. James!
I met cover models!
A cover model sat on me!
…and there’s more…but I’ll save my roomie pics for another day. I contracted an RT virus so I have to go lie down now.
And NO, I did not get this cold from snogging with the handsome cover models above. (Tempting as it was, I don’t think Mr. Lemmony would have appreciated that.)
Today on Friday Feast I have to share a modern miracle of the Veg world. In contrast to my April Fool’s joke stating I was going to start eating bacon again, today I’m showing what I’m really eating instead: the “finest faux” bacon on the block!
Today was my first taste of Upton’s, but with their vintage-mustached packages, basic, natural ingredients, and cruelty free deliciousness I can tell you, I’ll be trying more of their products.
In celebration of Friday Feast, and in honor of Upton’s, I think I should share a hunky hero with a ‘stache.
What say you, public? Do you prefer Bradley Cooper with a ‘stache? Or no ‘stache?
As a writer, there’s no greater compliment than to be entrusted with a to-be-released book and asked to provide a quote. This honor was bestowed upon me by my fabulous editor when she sent me Who Wants to Marry a Cowboy by Abigail Sharpe.
Here’s a sneak peek of what I’m reading:
There’s nothing florist Ainsley Fairfax won’t do to help her sister get the love of her life-even if it means taking her place on a bachelorette weekend at a Wyoming ranch so Cecelia can sail off with the man of her dreams. Ainsley is determined to spend the time keeping her head down and her heart safely tucked away-until an encounter with the ranch’s hunky owner gets her heart-and steamy desires-to bloom…
Riley Pommer doesn’t want to be lassoed into any relationship. But with the family ranch in dire straits, Riley knows his sisters’ crazy plan to turn the ranch into the setting for a dating competition-and using Riley as the bait-is the only thing standing between them and foreclosure. But the rules of the game change the instant Riley lays eyes on the spirited Ainsley. Now, as others try to stampede over their love, can Riley prove to Ainsley that true love is a prize worth fighting for?
Release date: May 7, 2013
Here it is…
My Tempting SWAG GIFTBAG!
And to pay homage to the book, I was sure to include:
So if you’re attending RT, make sure you stop by The Seymour Agency Gala and say hello! Pick up a bookmark and a button while you’re there and enter to win the SWAG BAG!
And be thorough about it, would ya?
Here’s what I’ve come up with.
1) It’s allergy season.
2) My coffee has secretly been replaced with decaf.
3) It’s cloudy.
4) I didn’t sleep enough.
5) I slept too much.
6) I’m still tired from Monday.
Anyway. I’m off to refill my coffee.
