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!

A bit of news! Omega Mine, Enemy Mine, and Vampire Mine are now available on Audio. I've included links below. For those who've asked: I'm not sure if/when other books will be available in this format. I'll update if/when I receive word.
So for those who wanted the books on audio, here you go! You can also find the links on Amazon.com
I did the first round of edits on Alpha Mine (second half of Trey and Sadie's story). It's complete at approximately 87k words. I'll update when I get a release date. I'm wrapping up Make Me Surrender and am working on Crimson Sunset. As a warning: Crimson Sunrise will be pulled from vendors soon. The rights have reverted to me but I have to wait a certain period of time before I re-release the story. The plan is to release Crimson Sunset within three months of Crimson Sunrise's re-release.
Cover art for The Renfield Syndrome is coming soon! I can't wait to share the cover with all of you. My cover artist is amazing.
I think that's it for now. Hope you're all doing well!

**To celebrate the re-release of Firsts (which is far superior to the original -- see post below for details), I'm holding a contest. Information is listed at the end of this post.**
I saw this book on Amazon a few years ago. Since I love a "friends to lovers" romance (especially of the erotic variety), I purchased a copy. I couldn't put the book down. I started late at night and refused to put it down until I finished. Afterward, I contacted the author, Rosalie Stanton, and told her how much I loved her work.
As time passed, we've kept in touch. She told me she was revising the story, and I begged her to send me a copy of the new version after she finished the manuscript. She did, and I spent an entire day on my Kindle.
You get more from each character and learn so much about Savannah and Thorn. If you enjoy New Adult with a mixture of erotic romance, Firsts is full of win. You can't go wrong. Since it's only .99 cents at the moment, it won't break the bank. I've stopped doing cover quotes but happily (and readily) did so when I was asked to provide one to for this story. That's how much I adore the characters.
Here's the blurb:
The past year has been hell on Savannah. Not only did her boyfriend dump her on the side of the road—literally—but her best friend, Wes, decided to graduate early. The person he becomes in college is even more confusing, and no matter what she tells herself, she can’t get over the thought of another girl having a piece of him that she’ll never have.
Wes has been in love with Savannah since childhood. Trouble is, she’s never seen him as anything more than a friend, and he’s never been brave enough to push those boundaries. He views college as an opportunity to finally move on. However, their continued close relationship makes moving on difficult, especially since Savannah has no idea she broke his heart.
With her own graduation day approaching, Savannah decides she doesn’t want to be a virgin when she gets to college. Turning to Wes to solve this problem seems sensible. After all, she trusts him more than anyone. Only she isn’t prepared for what her request unleashes—either from him, or in herself.
Want to win a copy of Firsts (signed by the author in print)? Here's how.
**Comment on this BLOG POST (bolded and embedded so you can enter if you see this via Facebook, Twitter, or Goodreads -- the comment must be here in order to enter) with your email added in order to achieve contact with me. Contest starts today and ends March 14th. I will email the winner for shipping information on the following day. Contest is international. If I don't receive an email response after 24 hours, I will use Random.org to choose another winner. If I don't receive a response I'll work my way down the line via the same method. Good luck and happy reading!**

I've gotten a few emails about release dates and such. For those who are curious, here's what the current release schedule looks like (you can click on images to redirect to my website for blurbs, excerpts, etc).
Dead, Undead, or Somewhere in Between will release in November.
The Renfield Syndrome will release in February (2015).
Shortly thereafter, The Ripple Effect (and Edge of Darkness will release).
As for other projects...
Alpha Mine is currently in edits, but I expect it will release in a month or two. Following that, Moon Kissed will release (August). The story isn't the same as the original. I did use the name of the first book in the series because I've always loved the title, but the characters are different and this version is expanded (and substantially changed) to reflect the full-length story about Adam and Kassia in book three.
For those who've asked, Crimson Sunset will release at the end of the year or, at the latest, the first of next year. Rights revert to me (Crimson Sunrise) in the summer and I'd like to revisit the material and return a few scenes that were cut. I'd also like to tweak things and tidy the manuscript. So yes, the book is coming soon. As for the Desires of the Otherworld series: These are stories I'm eager to return to. Right now I have contractual obligations but I've jotted down notes and hope to write new installments soon.
Right now, at home, things are chaotic. I'll go into that in another week or two (to sum things up -- I'm going to be an aunt again soon and we're expecting a permanent resident in our home). So to say I'm a tad overwhelmed is an understatement.
A few people are curious about my pit bull rescue work. At this time, I haven't been able to contribute to various rescues. However, Peach (the pibble-mix we adopted from a rescue in GA) is doing beautifully. Daisy (our APBT) continues to do well in her training. I'm amazed at how far she's come. As soon as things calm down, I plan to work with a rescue in my area.
I leave you all with a photo of our fur babes. This was taken when it was nice outside and I took a moment to relax and unwind. Wishing you all my best! Hope the weather is treating you kindly. :)
P.S. It's been brought to my attention that my prior blog about being an author and not a servant could be taken the wrong way. Allow me to state I adore my readers. I appreciate each and every single one of you who make it possible for me to writing for a living. Emails and messages make my day and are the reason I stay up late to write as much as I can. Sometimes it might take me a day or two in order to respond to each email or message but, believe me, without you I couldn't do this. I will get back to you.
Thank you, again, for being so amazing! I'll update again soon.
