#hwjmoviefest…christmas movie live tweet

Somehow it is already December of 2015. I have no idea how this is possible, but here we are in the midst of another Christmas season. The ladies of the Holidays with Jane collections will be celebrating this year like we did last with a Twitter Christmas Movie Fest!

You can view the Facebook Event Page here. The event will be taking place on Twitter using the hashtag #HWJMovieFest, but we will be posting all movies and times, as well as reminders on the even page, so make sure to check it out.

Die HardThe Holidays with Jane Movie Fest will be running from Friday 12/11 through Sunday 12/13. I will be live tweeting two movies, and in honor of my story in the Christmas Cheer collection, I’ll be watching the two movies that inspired It’s a Wonderful Latte: Die Hard and It’s a Wonderful Life.

Is Die Hard a Christmas movie, you may ask. Yes, it is…and my favorite one at that!

The Die Hard live tweet is going to take place between 7-9 MST (that’s 9-11 EST / 6-8 PST) on Friday, 12/11.

It's a Wonderful LifeThe It’s a Wonderful Life live tweet is going down between 4-6 pm MST (that’s 6-8 EST / 3-5 PST) on Sunday, 12/13.

If you want to watch along and don’t have these movies, Die Hard can be rented for streaming at Amazon here.

It’s a Wonderful Life isn’t streamable anywhere that I can see, if you find it somewhere let me know!

There will also be some prizes during the live tweet, so check it out even if you can’t watch along. You should probably follow me on twitter @_JessicaGrey.

The other authors participating (click the links for their twitters) are:

Melissa Buell

Jennifer Becton

Nancy Kelley

Rebecca Fleming

Cecilia Gray (she who spells her last name wrong!)

Additionally, Holidays with Jane: Christmas Cheer is now on sale for only 99 cents for Kindle, so if you don’t have a copy (or want to gift someone a copy for the holiday), now is a great time to snag one!



I hope to see you Friday and Sunday on Twitter.

all the what ifs…and a giveaway


Oh hello, internet! I have been horribly inconsistent in posting here, but today I have exciting news. My very good friend Angela Lynn has released her first novel! All the What Ifs is a YA coming of age story and it’s fantastic. I am super stoked for Angela and so excited to tell you all about All the What Ifs:


Ashley Morgan is trapped. She’s spent the last three years of high school being groomed to follow in her father’s footsteps. It’s a future she’s unsure of. Yet she tries her hardest to avoid her father’s disapproval while keeping the peace for her high-strung mother and autistic brother. Whenever her fears fester, Ashley works harder.

At the start of her senior year, Ashley reluctantly joins ACT an after-school community service club that is in disarray. The members argue. The advisor sleeps. And Lucas Malone, the club’s president, conjures unwanted memories of freshman year and his disastrous attempt to ask her to homecoming.

Ashley tries to remain uninvolved, but with each success in ACT she gains the confidence to face her future. She sets in motion plans that force her to choose between the bright future her father’s mapped out or an unknown path of her own design. When the moment comes to make her choice, she’s plagued with doubt, because what if … she gets it all wrong?

All the What Ifs is now available for kindle and paperback on Amazon.

On a super personal note, Ang is an insanely smart, funny, and supportive friend and writer. I have been blessed to have her story edit my work in the past (and present!), and I am so excited that the world gets to read All the What Ifs.

To celebrate the release of All the What Ifs, I am giving away a copy. Enter via the rafflecopter below…if the winner is in the US, they can pick between ebook or paperback. If the winner is outside the US, the prize will be an ebook due to shipping costs.
