Giveaway of my new lesbian romance, “Falling Hard”

Falling-Hard-3D-BookCover-transparent_backgroundI just realized that my latest lesbian romance novel, Falling Hard, has been out for a month, and I still haven’t done a giveaway!

Well, I’m about to remedy that.

Falling Hard is a contemporary romance in which a womanizing surgeon–the charming Jordan that you might already know from Heart Trouble–falls in love with the single mother of a five-year-old.

If that sounds like a novel you’d like to read and you would like to win a signed paperback copy, please leave a comment and I’ll enter you into the drawing.

Make sure you check back soon to find out if you won—or sign up to my newsletter so you won’t miss it. All you have to do is to enter your e-mail address into the box in the right-hand menu and click “subscribe.”

Good luck!

My new lesbian romance “Falling Hard” is out!

Falling-Hard-3D-BookCover-transparent_backgroundToday’s the day—my new novel Falling Hard is now available from pretty much all major online bookstores.

One of the main characters is Dr. Jordan Williams. Those of you who have read Heart Trouble might remember her as Hope’s best friend. She’s a surgeon with just two goals in life: saving patients in the OR and pleasuring her latest conquest in the bedroom.

Her new neighbor, single mother Emma, couldn’t be more different. After her recent divorce, she plans to focus just on her five-year-old daughter.

Neither of them counts on falling hard for each other.

If a slow-burn romance with entertaining banter, lovable characters, and a stuffed lion named Mouse sounds interesting to you, check out Falling Hard.

Monthly update – October 2016

heart troubleOctober and Halloween are over, and we’re heading toward Christmas and the year’s end already! Hard to believe, isn’t it?

October was a record month for me. I had several new books out:

My contemporary lesbian romance Heart Trouble is now available through all major online bookstores.

I also published two nonfiction guides for writers: Show, Don’t Tell and Point of View.

And my holiday-themed romance novel Under a Falling Star is now available as an audiobook!

So, as you can see, I had a lot of reasons to celebrate in October–and I did…cheesecakewith cheesecake! Yum!

I also spent most of one week at the book fair in Frankfurt, the largest book event in the world.

Oh12144751_1152051578162256_5457885689979025011_n, I almost forgot: Another reason to celebrate was that my historical romance Shaken to the Core received an honorable mention at the Rainbow Awards, which means that it’s a finalist.

When I wasn’t traveling or eating cheesecake, I mostly worked on my new novel, Falling Hard. I just finished the first draft, and now I’m revising it. It ended up at about 120,000 words, so it’ll be a typical long Jae novel with a lot of time to get to know the characters and enjoy their interactions.

Monthly update – September 2016

tee-1698272_640It’s definitely fall here, but since I’m lucky enough to live in the sunniest city in Germany, I still get to enjoy the gorgeous sunshine.

And speaking of enjoying… I’ve been reading the early reviews of my new novel Heart Trouble, and it seems readers are enjoying it very much. It’s already available at the Ylva webstore and you can pre-order it on Amazon. It will be out at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other bookstores this Wednesday.

I just got the edits for the translation of Heart Trouble back and all looks great for a release in late November/early December.

I’ve also been on a writing spree, making my 2,000-word goal every day since I started working on my new novel. The title will probably be Falling Hard. I’m over 60,000 words in, and I’m really enjoying these two main characters and their interaction. Jordan (who was a supporting character in Heart Trouble) is a surgeon and a pathological flirt while Emma is a single mom who just went through a divorce and so she isn’t very open to the idea of getting involved with Jordan.

I also picked up my research again. One of my 2017 novels will have an asexual main character, so I’ve been researching asexuality. Most people don’t even know what it is, but I really found it fascinating to learn more about this sexual orientation.

So here are the numbers for September:
