The Return

My previous post summed up the last year (actually, longer than that). My heart has been broken, and although it will never mend, I'm learning to deal with the loss of my father. I've been stuck in a hazy cloud that makes each day difficult. I find things I once enjoyed no longer excite me. Food has lost flavor, the sky has lost color, and I struggle to find meaning to mundane things that don't matter. I've even had to force myself to climb out of bed to spend time with my beloved Daisy Mae.

However, I have been in therapy. Talk about a miracle. I'm learning things don't have to be shiny or bright, so long as life is good, my children are healthy and well, and I am lucky to have a husband and family who love me. When I'm in a bad place, I repeat this mantra:

I'm not the girl I used to be (I might not ever be), but I'm coping. I've also learned Ellora's Cave will return my rights the beginning of next year (January 2017). Samhain continues publishing Rhiannon's Law (in e-book, not print) but I will be contacting them in regard to potential right reversion so I can release future books in the series.

This means I'm writing again. Not a little, but a lot.

I was almost finished with Make Me Surrender prior to lack of payment from EC. I'd also written the first portion of Sought and Twisted In Knots. So I've pulled those up and have been working on them. I also resumed work on Crimson Sunrise and Crimson Sunset. I do write Rhiannon but given current circumstances, I have to pull away when emotions run high. I love the series (and the character) yet venturing to sad/angry/dark places isn't easy.

I'm working on my website (I know it's dated and awful -- I apologize). I'm also trying to work out a schedule for future releases, cover art, etc. I'd like to thank those of you who have kept in touch. I'd also like to say I appreciate the words of encouragement, support, and understanding these past two years.

As Daddy used to say: "Shit fire and save matches. I'm busy as a one armed paper hanger, and as aggravated as a one-legged man in an ass-kicking contest."

That's it in a nutshell.

I miss him. I really, really miss him.

A Bad Year

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.

Rhiannon is Back (And other news)...

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.



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!

Dead, Undead, or Somewhere in Between, Coming November 4th!

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!

Eternity and a Day -- FREE

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!!

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!

Ellora's Cave

Amazon: Kindle

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!

Alpha Mine Release Date

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.
