So before I release my next cowboy book, Prayin’ For Daylight, I’m going to have a summer short for my readers to enjoy! I’m really excited about this book, and hope everyone has as much fun reading it, as I have had writing it!
This is the cover reveal for Saving Summer, on sale July 19, 2013
It was summertime on Half Mile Isle, a small island off the Florida coast. The malls were scarce, the movie theaters were nonexistent, and the chances of making contact with other human beings were slimmer than a Mangrove root. Summer Bergmann was literally stranded.
On that same island she meets Gael Cortez, a boy stuck in the repetitive ebb and flow of Half Mile, who was expecting his summer to be just as mundane as the last.
But neither of them could have guessed a hurricane would threaten their lives, and the island they’d come to love.
So this is a shout out to Ren Madeleine!!! I am excited for her!! She’s like a sister to me, and I can’t help but post about her editing business. She’s been editing things I’ve written over the past couple weeks, and I had no idea that she was going freelance for indie authors!! Head over to her website and check out what she offers. Tell her JC sent you, and you might even get a first time discount for using her services
What I love is that she is making it affordable for indie authors, especially the ones just starting out

Once upon a time, there was a gallbladder. It was happy, and then one day, decided it would revolt.
This sounds like a very promising story!
It’s not a fun story at all.
I’ve been absent for a little while, hard to get a hold of, and basically offline. Not great, but I’ve not been feeling good. Also, I’ve been distracted by a German scientist with a great head of hair and a very sweet accent! So I’ve had a lot of on my plate, but it’s been a wonderfully full plate, until the gallbladder revolted.
Yes, my gallbladder hates me.
No, I don’t know why.
I haven’t tried to have a conversation with Mr. Gall. Frankly, I’d feel crazy if I stared talking to my stomach. But he’s been getting in the way of life, including having a nice dinner with my German honey. And I would love nothing more than to nosh on hummus with my honey, but I can’t. Most of the time I’m in some sort of pain, and it’s getting in the way of my life. sometimes I feel like I can’t drive! And I love Prim, my Prius, so much!!!
So because of Mr. Gall and his revolting actions, I am not going to take this any more. I’m hiring someone to evict him.
Yes, Mr. Gall is no longer allowed to reside in my tummy, and I’m going to serve his notice via surgeon, in a week or two.
So here is to an eviction and speedy recovery, and back to work!!!
So I’m a big fan of JA Konrath. The man is smart. If he says something works when it comes to books, I’m not going to question him. I’ll usually give it a try. SO his latest recommendation is to use Amazon’s KDP Select. I have never used this before. But with the information he has recently given out, I’ve decided I’m going to do a little experiment. Yes, you heard me right. I’m going to exclusively publish a shortish story with KDP Select, set it for free, tell everyone and their brother, and then see what happens. Apparently this can work amazingly, or it can’t. Either way, my reason for doing this with a new story, is because I didn’t want to take any of my books out of the running on other sites. That’s isn’t nice to readers when they may not have a Kindle. A lot of my readers have Nooks and iPads.
So by doing this experiment, I hope to accomplish a few things:
1. Gaining more readers.
2. Getting readers excited. Everyone likes free stuff!
3. Boost sales. I hear that it can help your other books . (I’m one of those if it ain’t broke don’t fix it types. But this time, I’m willing to step out of my comfort zone with a new book by making it exclusively for Amazon.)
So here is to my new experiment! *Raises invisible glass for toast* I’m excited to see what happens!
