Jess Dee’s More Than Friends

3 Comments

Jess has a new release today. The first book in her brand new More Than Series, More Than Friends.
It’s a classic friends to lovers tale, with a very big erotic twist. And because it’s written by Jess, it’s incredible. 
 
MoreThanFriends72lgMORE THAN FRIENDS – THE BLURB:

He was her best friend…until he became her fantasy.

A More Than story.
 
Lucy Lawson’s got it bad. Bad as in stunned speechless by the situation she’s in, by the feelings sitting on her chest, ready to explode. She’s in love…with her best friend.

Problem is, telling Sebastian Blackford could destroy the best thing in her life, but the longer she keeps her feelings under wraps, the stronger the need to spill her secret.

The last thing Seb suspects is that his best mate is madly, wildly in love with him, or that he’s the star of her seriously dirty fantasies. Worse, he’s just started seeing someone he’d like to see again–and Lucy knows it.

So why does her confession hit him like a runaway train? And why can’t he get her explicit description of her fantasies out of his mind? They’ve never been more than friends, but now that he knows how Lucy feels, everything is out of whack.

Seb figures it’s up to him to get their relationship back on track. He’ll do it too, just as soon as he establishes which track is the right one.

Warning: After reading this, you may just be tempted to jump your best friend. It’s recommended you keep your partner on speed dial or a toy with fresh batteries on standby.

The Definition of Being an Australian…from an American.

3 Comments

This is a quote from Jason Alexander, the guy who played George Costanza on Seinfeld. I love it. In my opinion it sums up us Aussie perfectly.

george”Here is why I love the country. ‘Mate.’ No, it is spectacular.

”The notion that the guy who serves you your coffee is your mate. The notion that the guy who runs your bank account is your mate, the guy on your sporting team is your mate … and the prime minister of the country is your mate.

”The notion that you’re all mates, you’re all in it together, that there is a sense that ‘We’re Australians, we may have differences between us, but we’re all mates’. That sense only happens in America … when we have a crisis. But you guys propagate it every day by just going ‘Hey mate, g’day’. I love it. I love it. It is so welcoming, and so embracing, and so human, and, to me, that is the character of the country.”

In case you haven’t already guessed, I’m a pretty proud Aussie. And yeah, I call just about everyone mate.

 

 

It’s been a long time coming

Nope, I’m not talking about this blog post. Altho, if you consider how slack I’ve been about blogging here lately, you wouldn’t be wrong in jumping to that conclusion.

I’m talking about my next book release.

It feels like forever since I’ve had a new release. And I guess in e-book terms, it has been forever. Seven months. That’s a loooooong time.

But the wait is almost over. Because in just five days, the first book in my brand new “More Than” series, releases from Samhain.

WAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHOOOOOOO

Um. Er….Ooops. Sorry, that just kind of slipped out.

😀

So, wanna know more about More Than Friends? Just read on for the blurb.

Happy Belated Mother’s Day

A glimpse into the fun times at Sami’s house

Overheard conversation:

Princess:  Look, it’s an aeroplane

Cherub: Is it a Tiger aeroplane?

Princess: I can’t see. But if it was it would be full of tigers grrrr

Cherub: And if it was a virgin plane, it would be full of virgins.

(That’s not what I heard)

 After eating all of her spaghetti bolognaise:

Cherub: I ate it all up. Even the marshmallows!

(I put mushrooms in my bolognaise, in case you were wondering)

 Looking at the clouds:

Princess: Mummy, those look like serious (meaning cirrus) clouds.

Me: yeah, I heard they had no sense of humour

Princess: (blankly) No, that must mean something serious is about to happen.

(her sense of humour will develop over time, I’m sure)

 Exact conversation that took place between me and my four year old Cherub

Cherub: Do you want to play shops mummy?

Me: Ok, sure

Cherub: What would you like?

Me: (knowing what plastic food is available) I’ll have a banana split—that’s banana with ice cream on it.

Cherub: I can’t do that

Me: Then I’ll just have a plain banana

Cherub: Ok. Would you like ice cream too?

Me: I thought  you didn’t have… oh okay I’ll have banana and ice cream.

Cherub: Would you like chocolate or vanilla

Me: Vanilla

Cherub: I only have chocolate

Me: For goodness sakes. Don’t offer me something you don’t have! What kind of joint are you running?

Cherub: I told you I only have chocolate or vanilla

Me: And I want vanilla

Cherub: With your banana?

Me: Yes! With my banana. I want vanilla ice cream with my banana.

(Finally my meal is delivered. One banana with… a chocolate ice-cream cone. All day of this and people wonder why I drink)

And then it begins again with the drinks

Cherub: Would you like milk or juice

Me: Milk please.

Cherub: I don’t have any milk

Me: Can’t you pretend to have milk?

Cherub: Nope

Me: But you’re pretending to have juice

Cherub: Can’t pretend to have milk

Me: All right I’ll have some juice but when I drink it I’ll pretend it’s milk

Cherub: Nooooooo!

I will never understand the rules of pretend shops.

 HAPPY BELATED MOTHER’S DAY TO ALL

RT Convention – Kansas City 2013 (A Round-up in Photos)

8 Comments

The RT convention is one of the highlights of my year. I start counting down to the next one the minute the previous one finishes. Why? Because I get to spend it with my writer friends (although I’m still sulking about Sami not making this year), and I get to meet readers who I spend lots of time with online.

I could write a long post here about my time at RT this year, but I think the best way to share how awesome it is, is with photos. Questions will be answered after. Honest 🙂

They’re On Their Way

The divas are on their way back to Australia. Lex should be home sometime today (I think) and will be sleeping off her big week I’m sure. Rhian hung back in KC an extra day, and poor Jess missed her connecting flight in LA so she was stuck there for 24hrs! ARGH!

Meanwhile, back at the homestead, I am so close achieving my goal of 10,000 words while the girls are at RT. I’ve gotten to 9000, and thought I’d reach 10 this morning, but for some ungodly reason hubs decided to get up at 5am too. Now, let me just say this: when I get up early I sneak around the house, afraid to open the fridge to even get myself a drink so as not to wake up the kids, caaaarefully turning the knob on the office door so it doesn’t squeak and trying to type super quiet. When hubs gets up, all the lights go on, breakfast is made, he clacks around in his work shoes. Yeah, the kids were up a lot earlier than usual. So my writing time disappeared into thin air. Kind of pissed I got up for nothing, actually.

So I’m still hanging on 9k and am stuck at a point in the ms where I feel like a wall has come up. The scene I wrote this morning?

She hears Jake on the radio and he says something that makes her change her mind.

Think I can just leave it like that?

Perhaps not.

Best pic from RT ever!
