I had a great time at my first book signing. I got to catch up with some friends that I hadn't seen in a while and my family took me out afterward to celebrate. Over all I had a great time! I've included some pictures.
Lessons Book 2 in The Teacher Series will be released tomorrow, Feb. 17th!!!!!!
I'm so excited that tomorrow my second book will be released! This installment in the series has more classroom scenes. While you're reading it, keep in mind that a lot of the humor is based on real stories with just a little extra comedy. Parents have no idea the stories teachers hear. Ha!
On Saturday, Feb. 22nd, I'll be at the Keller Library. I'd love for everyone to stop by to visit and register to win a $10 Amazon giftcard.
Rebel Ink Press has contracted to publish my book, The Highlander's Treasure! It's no secret that I love historical romance, so I had to write in that genre. I'm still going to write more books in the teacher series but I want to explore some other genres too!

TOP TEN FAV “PICK UP” LINES
1. Eve’s Corny p/u lines: Did you sit in a puddle of maple syrup? Because you have a swe-e-e-t ass.
2. Eve: Do you live in a corn field? Because I’m stalking you.
3. Eve: Your lips look so lonely. Would they like to meet mine?
Note from Eve: Funny how most pickup lines are from guys to girls, and have to do with sex. lol. Then again, can you imagine a woman going up to a guy and saying “Hey gorgeous, I brought along my ten inch ruler because I’ve got a feeling you’ll measure up.” Hehehe.
4. Kym’s Corny p/u lines from movies: “Do you wash your pants in Windex? Because I can see myself in them.” ~Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery,
5. Kym: “You know, it’s dangerous for you to be here in the frozen food section… Because you could melt all this stuff.” ~My Blue Heaven
6. Kym: “I couldn’t help but notice that you look a lot like my next girlfriend.” ~Hitch
7. Victoria’s fav lines that actually worked on me: (The lifeguard.) “You all might as well go home because this storm isn’t going away. (looks at me) Except you. You stay and we’ll go swimming.”
8. Victoria: “Have you seen Jeff?” “Who’s Jeff?” “Who cares? What’s yourname?”
9. Victoria: “You’re my pick for student body president. Run and I’ll make sure you get elected.”

She is an amazing author and definitely goes out of her way to offer advise to newly published writers like me. I'm so excited to have her on my blog!
Spotlight: Ella’s Cougar
Ella’s Cougar (Chestnut Rock Shifters, Book 7)
Rebel Ink Press
Ella Cardwell never forgot the
cougar she met in the forest after wandering away from her parents when she was
six years old. Her unbelievable story, combined with her fascination of the
animals, caused her to leave home when she turned eighteen and find the cougar
that monopolizes her thoughts. She makes the journey to the Chestnut Rock
Resort, certain she will find her destiny—the boy, now a man, from all those
years ago. She recognizes him on sight, but he’s not waiting for her like she
thought he would be.
Cole Rookman met his mate when he
was too young to understand the strong, intense feelings conjured by the mating
instinct. With no way to track her down, he’s lived for nearly fifteen years
with the knowledge he would never be able to claim her, and he would always be
alone. Unusual circumstances lead to allowing thoughts of his mate to break
down his carefully constructed barriers, and he risks losing everything.
Ella makes new friends, but they
soon learn her secret: she came looking for a man who is unavailable. Instead
of censure, they offer comfort and friendship until the truth starts to unravel
and her crush is ultimately revealed. Cole wants to believe his mate searched
him out, but after battling severe depression, he’s not willing to raise his
hopes. Wishing for something impossible is reckless, but when all signs point
to the girl as his mate, he has to find her and see for himself.
Unbelievably, nothing had changed.
The hotel looked just as it had in the picture. Though it didn’t show in the
postcard, the buildings on either side of the main hotel were also as she
remembered. To the left of the main house stood a smaller building she thought
might be the owner’s home, or employee quarters. It was much larger than most
houses, but the detached garage gave it a normal appearance.
To the right of the hotel, another
smaller building stood. It reminded her of a warehouse, but she didn’t know its
purpose. Further down on the right led to the carport. Guests used golf carts
to travel the property when she’d visited, and it looked like they still did.
She tucked the postcard back into
her pocket and resisted the urge to run toward the main doors of the hotel. She
wasn’t exactly sure of her plan—or how she would find the man—and briefly
contemplated going to the smaller house on the left.
Ella glanced toward the building
again and noticed a car parked out front. As if in slow motion, the front door
opened and a short woman with platinum blond hair stepped out, followed by a
tall blond man carrying an infant in a car seat.
She’d always known in her heart she
would know him on sight, but never once did she question his feelings.
The blond man was the boy, all grown
up, and she was too late.
Jane has been creating stories of
love and romance for as long as she can remember. She’s a sucker for a happy
ending and thinks the best thing about any movie or book is when the characters
find someone to love.
Jane writes romance in the
contemporary, fantasy and paranormal genres, but paranormal romance is her true
passion. She loves creating worlds around sexy shifters and vamps—even if the
shifter is a smelly skunk!
Jane writes sensual romance that
will warm your heart, and a happy ever after is guaranteed!
