Happy Thanksgiving!! One potato is worth a thousand words…

potato_girl

Today we give thanks to our families, significant others, and all the wonderful readers. Without you guys, well, we wouldn’t be writers.

Thank you for believing in us. You’ll never know what it means to us.

And yes, writing is just as hard as peeling all those potatoes.

But just think about those yummy, garlicky potatoes and oh my…

The gravy!

It doesn’t get better than that.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Join me in Venice, Italy for my #PizzaPartyDay video!

Jina’s Pizza Party in Venice, Italy from Jina Bacarr on Vimeo.

Oh, goody, it’s pizza party day!!

I love pizza. Or tomato pies as they used to call them in Philly. (Yes, I’ve got the Liberty Bell state on my mind since my heroine in my latest WIP, Royal Magic [Royals of Monterra, Kindle Worlds], is from South Philly.)

Now, for our pizza party.

Here’s a video I made when I was asked to speak and perform at La Biennale in Venice, Italy and my search for pizza…

I hope you enjoy it!!

PS
And thank you to Alessandra Bazardi for helping me find the best pizza in Venice!! Grazie!

I’m writing ROYAL MAGIC now…release date in July along with Sariah Wilson’s next novel, ROYAL GAMES. Keep you posted!

My current book for Sariah’s Royals of Monterra Kindle Worlds series is ROYAL DARE about Princess Violetta from “Royal Date.”

She goes off to rehab and gets more than she bargained for…

I first met Princess Violetta in Sariah Wilson’s story, ROYAL DATE.

You can meet see what happened to her afterward in rehab in ROYAL DARE.

I fell in love with the Monterra family, especially Violetta. I call her the “misunderstood princess.” She has everything—looks, money and a title—yet she fell victim to the seductive power of drugs. Why? I wondered. What led her down this path?

I was intrigued tRD_KindleWorldso answer that question, but more importantly, I wanted to know what happened to Violetta when she went to rehab. How hard is it for a princess to get clean? And will she find her prince when she does?

I answer this question and more in my Kindle Worlds “The Royals of Monterra” story, ROYAL DARE.

I hope you enjoy it!

We all love fairy tales — so why not a “Happily Ever After” Museum for #MuseumDay?

I love museums.

I’ve traipsed through the Louvre, hung out at the Franklin Institute in Philly, and faced off with an Egyptian queen up close and personal in Berlin.

History…so precious. It shapes us and our stories.

But what the other history?

The one that exists only in…dare I say it…fairy tales?

Wouldn’t you love to see Cindy’s glass slipper? Her ball gown? See if her pumpkin coach has plush, orange satin cushions?

And:

Sleeping Beauty’s 100-year-old bed

Snow White’s poison apple

The Evil Queen’s Talking Mirror

Rumpelstiltskin’s spinning wheel

Aladdin’s magic lamp

What fairy tale historical items would you like to see in “The Happily After Museum?”

I’d love to hear your ideas for our “Happily Ever After Museum!”

My latest princess story is no fairy tale:

It ain’t easy getting clean, even for a Princess…

And as always, thank you to Sariah Wilson for creating this wonderful character in ROYAL DATE.

Limerick Day: The Princess and the Dragon

The Princess and the Dragon

There once was a princess so fair
Who was caught in the red dragon’s lair
Her drug of choice was meth
Which could only lead to death
So to rehab she went in Royal Dare.

~Jina

Asking for help is the hardest thing for an addict. The shame, the embarrassment and potential consequences for admitting addition often steer them away from seeking treatment.

Fortunately for the heroine in my Royals of Monterra Kindle Worlds story “Royal Dare,” Princess Violetta finally gets into rehab with the help of her family.

But it ain’t easy getting clean, even for a Princess…

Find out how Violetta copes on her road to sobriety in ROYAL DARE.

Philly, Row Houses & Pretzels, oh my! #NationalPretzelDay

When I was a kid in Philly, the good Sisters of Charity welcomed the Pretzel Man every day past the iron gate and into the school yard. Oh, the excitement from the little girls in their blue uniforms–including me. I couldn’t wait to bite into the yummy pretzel during lunch recess…thank you, Sisters!

I love Philly pretzels.

They’re long, chewy, and have just the right amount of salt. As you can tell, that fond memory has stayed with me. When I wanted to write about a heroine for my next story in Sariah Wilson’s Kindle Worlds series, The Royals of Monterra, I wanted to take a girl who lives in a row house in Philly.

A girl with a dream to fly on the silks in an aerial ballet, but something is holding her back.

Until she receives a royal command to perform in Monterra.

There she meets a handsome member of the Monterran family who isn’t what he seems…
