Lipstick Day! A sexy poem . . .

I love lipsticks!
I save them, have lots of tubes I don’t use anymore, but the colors are still intense and vibrant — and the tubes! I have one that’s very Art Deco. Most lipsticks now come in plastic tubes . . .
So for LIPSTICK DAY here’s a poem I wrote about lipsticks . . . and your man.
Jina

PS — I’m writing a WW2 time travel story now where everybody wears red, red lipstick. What’s your favorite color?<

A LIPSTICK Lover’s Poem
From pink to peach to jungle red
There’s little that hasn’t been said
About our favorite lipstick shade
That promises not to fade
But it’s not lipstick’s glam
Or its kickass hot damn
That seduces us to the lipstick counter
But the promise of a sexy encounter
With the hottie of our dreams
Who’s more than he seems
A man for all seasons
Who has his reasons
When he whispers, “I don’t mean to be rude…
“But I prefer you and your lipstick nude.”
You can find all my heroines and their lipsticks on my Amazon Author Page: https://www.amazon.com/Jina-Bacarr/e/B001IU2P8G/ref=ntt_dp_epwbk_0

LOVE ME FOREVER

She wore gray.
He wore blue.
But their love defied the boundaries of war.
And time.

LOVE ME FOREVER is a Kindle Scout selection and is available at Amazon.com on Kindle and Kindle Unlimited

Sometimes a caring heart can save a life…Suicide Prevention Day

When  Princess Violetta in ROYAL DARE goes to rehab, she finds out the road to sobriety is more than just quitting using drugs. She also discovers it’s teamwork.

Everyone helps everyone else, listening, processing.

But when the princess gets a new job at the rehab facility answering the phones, she uses all of her skills to try to save Tess.

A girl who wants to end it all.

Can Violetta save her? Find out in ROYAL DARE.

Check out my Royals of Monterra Kindle Worlds: ROYAL DARE

When PRD_KindleWorldsrincess Violetta goes off to rehab at the end of Sariah Wilson’s (Royal Date) Kindle Worlds Royals of Monterra, she can’t take her tiara with her.

Princess Violetta is the younger sister of the hero, Prince Nico, in Sariah’s story.

She’s also a meth addict.

When she goes off to rehab in the States (after being tossed out of a posh London rehab), she doesn’t tell anyone she’s a princess.

Though her British accent and her purse collection (who else but a princess would bring all this stuff to rehab? asked a resident) earn her the nickname of “Princess.”‘

Still, it ain’t easy getting clean…even for a princess.

COMING IN OCTOBER 2016: ROYAL BRIDE — Zoey’s story from ROYAL DARE.

————-

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 to 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!

If you need a hug…you can count on your Teddy Bear

Twitter is fun…Facebook keeps you connected to friends and family…Instagram lets you share special moments in pictures.

But none of these can give you a hug when you need it.

And God knows, we all could use more hugs in our lives. It’s not easy trying to make it in a digital world, but there’s one thing you can count on to always be there for you.

Your Teddy Bear.

So the next time you need a hug, wrap your arms around your ole teddy bear. Tattered, frazzled, stuffing coming out–it doesn’t matter.

Hug him. Or her.

It just feels good…

~Jina — off to find her ole brown teddy bear.

Magic has always fascinated me — there’s nothing more magical than a book.

It can take you anywhere — in ROYAL MAGIC, Afton and her sister Emma travel to Monterra. It’s a fairy tale kingdom in the modern world.

She meets a gorgeous guy who has the look of a man used to getting his hands dirty. Rugged, independent.

When her sister goes missing in ROYAL MAGIC, he’s her only chance of finding her.

When she finds out later who he really is, it blows her mind!

A hunky date for #TowelDay with Princess Violetta of “Royals of Monterra”

Yesterday I wrote about wearing a tiara all day for Tiara Day. Trying to get my princess on while I work on Royal Magic.

Today is Towel Day — no, I’m not going to sit at my computer with a towel wrapped my tiara. I’ve got a better…way better idea.

Today is pure eye candy.

Mr. Towel Day in the flesh…literally.

I’ve been doing graphics for my “You know you’re a Princess if…” Royal Dare (Royals of Monterra Kindle Worlds) story about Princess Violetta going off to rehab. Here’s another one especially for Towel Day.

Enjoy!!

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!!

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

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!”

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.

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…
