I've gotten several emails (and inquiries on Amazon) about project statuses:
To preface: I am NOT dead. I've been taking care of health issues.
At the moment, all is great. However, I'm currently writing with carpal tunnel in both wrists as surgery will hinder writing for several more weeks. Although each key stroke hurts, I AM working on projects and will have them out as soon as I can:
A new sci-fi series. A new vampires series. A new contemp series.
And, obviously, Edge of Darkness (Rhiannon's Law).
It's been over a year since I could write w/o pain (which I loathe), but I am on the rebound. Trust me when I say the past year and a half hasn't been pleasant.
I couldn't write at all last year. I apologize for the delay.

First and foremost: Rhiannon is back! I'm was so excited when Samhain offered to buy not one, but THREE of the books in the series. The fourth is a work in progress (I'm writing as fast as I can -- kiddos can hinder the process a bit). Purchase links are below.
BARNES & NOBLE
SAMHAIN (this one has a sizable discount).
I'll add other outlets as they appear. This version of Dead, Undead contains 7k additional words which my editor graciously allowed me to return (mostly character development and things that were previously omitted). My goal is to finish Edge of Darkness in December and Into Oblivion (Rhiannon #5) shortly thereafter.
As for other things:
Crimson Sunrise is currently in edits and I'll share release information soon. Crimson Sunset will follow (I imagine Crimson Sunrise will release the beginning of next year and Crimson Sunset will release in the summer or fall -- depending on edits).
As for other works.
*takes a deep breath*
My editor at EC (Ann The Mighty) was removed from staff a while ago. I currently have no EC editor. I was given a new one who resigned. Due to this, I've re-done my schedule. I've waited a LONG time to say this. It's broken my heart and has made it very difficult to write (I had started Sought and Immortal Mine). I'm almost done with Make Me Surrender but halted when I learned Ann was gone. I know there are things going on at EC and I've been quiet on the matter. Although I'd like to say more, I won't. It's not my way. I've been through ups and downs with many publishers and I've learned it's best to wait and see what is what. I don't know what's going on. Truly. However, I'm an author who schedules with editors I currently owe work and work (at Samhain and otherwise) is due.
On a more positive note, I've started new series to release next year (a SCI-FI erotic romance series) I'm super excited about (my mother in law is also excited and loves what's taken place so far), therefore I hope you will too.
Dear readers: I know it's hard when you want a certain book in a series yet it's not HERE. Again, I am sorry. Sometimes I don't say much because, again, I prefer not to. Trust me when I say that I'd have books to you as soon as possible if I could. This is why I'm leaning toward self-publishing.
Things I can tell you:
The Renfield Syndrome releases in February at Samhain.
Crimson Sunrise will release just before or after that.
The Ripple Effect releases in July/August.
Crimson Sunset will release just before or after The Ripple Effect.
Edge of Darkness will release in 2016.
I've returned to the Desires of the Otherworld series, those books are coming too.
As always, thank you for your support. I appreciate it more than you know. I've added those who've asked to take part to my newsletter.
I wish all of you nothing but my best. As always, thank you for being awesome!

It's hard to believe this series has been revived. I hope fans of the books enjoy the changes and Edge of Darkness (it will release fall or beginning of 2016 -- Samhain slots books accordingly). Dead will release November 4th.
The Renfield Syndrome will release February 4th 2015.
The Ripple Effect will release July/August 2015.
I was thrilled to go back and change things. I'd cut a lot out of the original books during the editing process. Now I've been allowed to return them to the book(s). The editing process is different at Samhain, but amazing. I've learned SO much.
I'll be updating with purchase links when the book goes live and will keep you up to date on future releases.
Speaking of books...
I'm currently reworking The Crimson books. The first will remain as is (the cover art for Crimson Moon will be changing soon -- you can see it below) but I wanted to dive deeper into the other two. I have covers (I LOVE THEM -- the amazing Elaina Lee did all of them) and will share release dates when my editor gives me dates. Here they are, if you're curious.
I know I've not been online much. For that, I apologize. I've had family matters to address and tend to. While 2014 was a slow writing year for me, I'm hoping to ramp things up for next year in the next couple of months.
For fans of my Ellora's Cave books: my editor (the uber-fantastic Ann) was let go recently and I've not been assigned a new editor. I'm not aware of what is transpiring with EC (again, I've been offline). I don't know when the next Alpha and Omega book will arrive, nor do I know when Sought will be available. Since things are slow I've decided to focus on other projects. I've continued writing (despite limitations) and hope to have a slew of books ready for next year. One is a new sci-fi erotic romance I'm really excited about. I'm also working on a contemporary romance.
As always, you can get information from my FACEBOOK or you can join my newsletter (comment here to be added -- I'm currently adding those who've emailed me -- or hit me up at jasaare at gmail dot com).
All My Best!

I wanted to mention that Eternity and a Day will be free on Amazon over the next six days. If you're curious about the series, click the cover art to read the blurb and an excerpt. While this series isn't as popular as my other books, I look forward to revisiting the world (and will in 2015). The next two books in the series are clear in my head.
Thanks again for all the support and emails!
Alpha Mine is here! I hope you enjoy the second portion of Trey and Sadie's story. Plot threads come together, several things are resolved, and you'll learn which book (and hero and heroine) to expect next. I enjoyed writing this story, and I hope you enjoy reading it.
I'll update with purchase links when they come in. Please remember I have no control if/when the book will appear on Kindle, All Romance eBooks, or Barnes and Noble. Kindle is generally quicker, but, again, I'm not sure when that'll happen.
If you want a definite answers please contact Ellora's Cave: HERE.
Now, for purchase links!
Barnes and Noble: Nook
All Romance Ebooks (Coming Soon).
For those who've asked about Audible -- please contact Audible HERE. As of now the book isn't on audio but a representative told me to direct readers to that email to request the book. Hopefully the story will be in that format in the future.
Thank you, as always, for the support!

It's official. Alpha Mine releases June 6th at Ellora's Cave. I'm currently wrapping up Make Me Surrender. I'll be back with news on future projects as soon as possible. I hope you enjoy second half of Trey and Sadie's story. It's longer than Vampire Mine (88k words) and, I hope, will answer the questions and please readers who wanted more of the couple.
A mating like no other.
Trey almost turned his back on his pack to claim Sadie—the stunning vampire who made him whole and crept into his soul. Finally, things have settled. But as an alpha, Trey’s always busy. Thankfully he has a woman who’s more than happy to ease his frustrations, see to his every desire and give him as much of her as he can take. He can’t wait to greet each day with his mate by his side.
Then Shepherds return to New York and start killing off shifters.
Sadie’s powerful enough to protect their people but Trey is determined to keep her safe. Until other dangers arise—ones that could harm humans and immortals alike—and he needs her help when things take a turn for the worst. To destroy their enemies, they’ll have to stand together. Even if it means risking everything, including each other.
A Romantica® erotic paranormal romance from Ellora’s Cave.

In the last week I've received multiple inquiries regarding the release date of Alpha Mine. Initially, I tried to respond. Then, without knowing how to respond, I directed readers to Ellora's Cave. For those who have been told to talk to me regarding the release day: Truthfully, I do not know when the book will release.
First and foremost: I apologize for the delay. The book is still in the editing process. When I receive word on the status, I will let you know. After a novel is turned in, the manuscript is in the hands of editors and the publisher. You can email Ellora's Cave but, as I've learned, they will redirect you to me for information. I can only tell you what I know: I have no release date information and no idea of the status on edits. Therefore I can't share a release date.
I am truly sorry.
In other news: Moon Kissed is available for pre-order. CLICK HERE to redirect to Amazon (the book is on pre-order for all Amazon vendors if you're interested -- I have the UK link on my website). I will update when the book is revealed on the Samhain website. I've returned to the series for a substantial rewrite. The second (still untitled novella) is halfway completed. The third is being written as we speak.
Dead, Undead, or Somewhere in Between releases at Samhain on November 4th (no pre-order yet).
The Renfield Syndrome will release in February 2015. Future stories (including The Ripple Effect and Edge of Darkness) will release every three to six months.
I'm sorry this is the only information I have.
I am working on other projects (Desires of the Otherworld, a new UF series, a new YA series, and a new sci-fi erotic romance series I'm very excited about) for self-publication. This is new to me, but I can write at my own pace and, hopefully, release more stories (at a lower cost) per year.
The best way to keep up to date on release/blurb/cover/information is to...
Join my Facebook Author/Fan Page. This is a good venue but, as a warning, I have to pay for "boosts" so readers can see updates. I apologize. This means you might have to check in on the page to see things if I'm not willing to pay money to boost posts.
Receive my newsletter by emailing jasaare at gmail dot com and asking to be included.
Or continue checking here. When I have solid confirmation on dates and such, I will post.
I'm trying to figure out a new way to communicate with fans. Within the next few months a forum will be established where I can communicate directly with readers. I plan to write vignettes (and share scenes that were cut from previous novels).
Make Me Surrender is almost complete. The second installment in the Make Me series is much longer (it will be at least 75k words, possibly more). Edge of Darkness is also underway. I'm revising Crimson Sunrise and have started work on Crimson Sunset. I'll have news on release dates, cover art, snippets, etc, soon.
In regard to conferences...
I will be in New Orleans for RT in May. However...I didn't realize RT was taking place at the same time I'll be in town. So while you're exploring the area you "might" bump into me. If so, please feel free to say hello! I'd be glad to chat. That being said, I'm not officially taking part in RT.
I'll update again soon. I'm taking a trip to see my beloved nephew Colton in the morning. He's growing so fast. Here's a picture of our visit today. I'm making a face because I was blowing strawberries to get his attention. He is SO amazingly adorable!
Happy reading and much love and best wishes to you all! I will update as soon as I receive word on release dates. Newsletters haven't rolled out (yet) as I'd hoped to include the Alpha Mine with my other upcoming releases.
Spring is in full swing! Bring on the summer!
