We’ve also made Holidays with Christmas Cheer FREE for Kindle through the end of today! Make sure to snag a copy on Amazon.


As part of this event, I’ve vlogged (OMG I KNOW!) about three topics related to my short story, “It’s a Wonderful Latte.) You can check those out on YouTube, (and someday I’ll figure out the correct plug in so I can embed videos in posts…put that on the agenda for not today).

Oh, and there’s a giveaway for some audiobooks and ebooks too!

Merry Christmas in July!!

christmas cheer…now on audiobook

Somehow it is already December…Do you ever feel like the year just gets away from you? I definitely feel that way this year (and every year).

The exciting news though, is that along with a brand new Holidays with Jane book (Thankful Hearts), we also are releasing Holidays with Jane: Christmas Cheer on audiobook this holiday season.

Holidays with Jane: Christmas Cheer is available on and on Amazon. I also want to say thanks to our amazing narrator Tiffany Dougherty for doing such an amazing job with so many different narration styles and characters. I absolutely loved listening to her read It’s a Wonderful Latte, her take on Izzy cracked me up.




As always, Victoria Austen-Young knocked our cover out of the park!

To celebrate its release, I am giving away a copy of Holidays with Jane: Christmas Cheer. Enter in the rafflecopter below!

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 cover


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.

Hello lovelies…

Introducing Holidays with Jane: Trick or Sweet:


Trick or Sweet


Isn’t it gorgeous?


The ebook is currently for sale on Amazon and the paperback is coming soon.  Here’s the list of stories, I have Pride and Prejudice with time, which was both fun and daunting ‘cause it’s P&P and basically perfect and everyone loves it!


Load up on pumpkin spice, grab your bowl of candy, and settle in for a spooky night with six brand-new modern Jane Austen adaptations from the authors of Holidays with Jane: Christmas Cheer and Spring Fever!

Must Be Magic
by Kimberly Truesdale
Eight years ago Anne Elliot made a devastating choice. When a new threat and an old love both come into her life, she faces that choice again. This time will it be love or will it be magic?

Once Upon a Story
by Rebecca M. Fleming
Catie Morland isn’t sure how to explain what happened at Abbey College’s annual Fall-o-Ween event until bumping into vacationing sisters Jane and Cassie. Will everything begin to make sense as she tells them the whole story?

by Cecilia Gray
Miriam Dashwood has to throw a party for straight-laced Brandon Firestone without spending a dime. When the lead for rock sensation Willow Bee offers a free performance, Miriam figures he’s her hero. Brandon has other ideas, but will free spirited Miriam come around to his way of thinking?

Emma Ever After
by Melissa Buell
Emma Woodhouse is determined that this year’s Fall Ball will be the most successful one yet. An influx of single men in Highbury make a Bachelor Auction a reality. Can she work her matchmaking magic once again?

Mansfield Unmasked
by Jennifer Becton
An impromptu Halloween party at Mansfield Park Boarding House provides Pug an opportunity to use his magic powers to unite Pryce and Spenser. But can he expose their true feelings for each other before his powers fade?

Beyond Midnight
by Jessica Grey
Halloween isn’t what Will Harper planned. His sister is playing fairy godmother. He’s at Chawton High’s Trick or Sweet Dance. He’s in costume…and falling for Elena Marquez? Is it real or magic…and can it last Beyond Midnight?




To promote Holidays with Jane: Trick or Sweet, the lovely Melissa Buell has set up a fantastic blog hop. The start post is over on Indie Jane and there will be posts from all of these fantastic authors (and slightly less fantastic me) along the way, as well as a giveaway.


I hope you join us!
