Coming up tomorrow on Titanic Tuesdays: Ava O’Reilly and her Irish roots… and mine, too

 

THE RUNAWAY GIRL, is on schedule for a March 17 pub date. 

Two women hold the keys to his heart. Only one will survive that fateful night…

When Ava O’Reilly is wrongly accused of stealing from her employer, she has no option but to flee Ireland. The law is after her, and she has only one chance at escape – the Titanic.

Aboard the ship of dreams, she runs straight into the arms of Captain ‘Buck’ Blackthorn, a dashing gentleman gambler who promises to be her protector. He is intrigued by her Irish beauty and manages to disguise her as the maid of his good friend, the lovely Countess of Marbury. Little does he realise, that the Countess is also in love with him.

As the fateful night approaches, tragedy strikes further when Ava is separated from Buck, and must make a daring choice that will change her life forever…

A sweeping historical romance set aboard the Titanic, from the author of Christmas Once Again.

Poetry at Work Day and the Frog who makes dreams come true

Poetry at Work Day:

The art of writing fairy tales is a joy I claim.

But frog or toad, what’s in a name?

’Tis a prince I seek at the end of my tale

And that happily ever after, but to no avail

Ah, but yes have I the power of the pen So with my snappy keystrokes

Poof! I say. He’s here. Amen!

Who’s that cute little frog sitting on my typewriter? Could he be a prince?

(check out the prince in my next video below)

What do Hungry Writers do? They “Cook Their Books” #FREE Anthology #KindleScout

 

I’m so proud to be a Kindle Scout Winner and Kindle Press Author — a big bonus for me was meeting and hanging out with the other winners. Such a talented, witty group — and good cooks, too!

So a bunch of us decided to cook our books. We’ve just released a FREE anthology of recipes: KP Authors (Kindle Press Authors) Cook Their Books.

Thanks to everyone who participated, but a big shout out to Fiona Quinn for organizing our cookbook drive and getting us off our butts. Fiona is an amazing mystery writer — check out her Lynx series HERE.

I hope you enjoy our recipes. Mine are from LOVE ME FOREVER. You can read an excerpt from my book along with a fun chat with my heroines, Liberty and Pauletta Sue.

National Make a Friend Day

Make_Friend_Day_NAC

It’s National Make a Friend Day!

==============

Books have been my friends since I read my first fairytale.

We moved a lot from state to state when I was a kid due to my dad’s work, so I was kinda slow making friends. I remember a teacher wrote on my report card, “…works well by herself, is shy and reads a lot.”

I was already in my third school.

And I was in the 3rd grade.

Over the years, books are still my friends, but like the little girls in the graphic I put together, it’s more fun to share those books with a friend.

And to everyone out there who stops by to read my stories and posts, I like to think of you as my friends, too. Got a question? Comment? Ask me.

Thank you!!

Best,

Jina
