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.


So here are the numbers for October:

  1. Congratulations re the Rainbow Awards – very well deserved. I thought “Heart Trouble ” was engrossing and loved the concept. What a treat to listen as well as read. I hope there’ll be more audiobook titles to follow.
