The Day After

Wasn’t that a movie title?

Well, it’s nothing as apocalyptic as that. It’s the day after Australia Day, that’s all, and my firefighter’s calendar competition closed yesterday. I’ve drawn a winner this morning and it’s

Just Read it I Might Give You Something

January, Schmanuary.

I’ve decided I hate January. It is December’s hangover and it lasts all month. It’s hot. It’s my dayjob anniversary every January (7 years and counting). I’m trying not to eat tubs and tubs of ice-cream (traditionally known as dieting). I’m sapped of energy, what due to the heat, the hunger and the lack of motivation for driving to the aforementioned dayjob. Even the kids are starting to get bored and can’t wait to go to school.

Summer holidays. Who needs ’em?

Why am I moaning about all this? Because the January Syndrome (I’ve given it a name) effects my writing. I’m in a slump, and as it’s the 3rd January in a row I’ve found myself in this particular slump, I think it’s an ongoing condition. I finished one book… but I only had 3k left to write on it. I’m doing edits… but I’ve been faffing about, sleeping in through writing time and not getting them finished. Due by the end of the weekend, people. Ugh.

AND to top it all off, I haven’t blogged! First week of the month I was going to giveaway my QLD Firefighter’s calendar, because that’s the most appropriate time to give away calendars, I hear. But no. I haven’t even had the strength to lift my little fingers to do that. SOOOOOOOO… late as it might be I figure I had better give it away now.

How’s that for an enthusiastic announcement? Okay, how’s this?

WHO WANTS A HOT FIREMAN EVERY NIGHT OF THE YEAR?

YOU, THAT’S WHO!

I have a hot, signed Qld Firefighter’s Calendar to give away to one lucky commenter. Yes, I had it endorsed myself, not once, but twice! This is Mr August

My Fireman

He he. I promised my husband he didn’t cop a feel, he was the perfect gentleman (funny, he never asked if I copped a feel…). It’s also been signed by November, a very cute guy by the name of Andrew. If I’d had a friend with me at the time, I would have insisted on a shot with both of them. Ooohhh naughty. But young Andrew had to take the picture. I promise, he did. And he was totally cute. Did I mention that?

If you want one of these delicious calendars, AND a signed copy of my print book ERICA’S CHOICE, all you have to do is comment on this post. Tell me what you HATE about January. I know it’s snowing like mad in the Northern Hemisphere, so your experiences are way different. Tell me about them! Or if you’re one of those sunny people loves everything, tell me what’s so great about it. I’ll leave comments open for a week and also share this on Facebook and Twitter etc. If you comment there you’ll also go in the draw.

I’ll pick a winner on Australia Day 26th of January (Sunday) and announce it next week.

See you around the Nets. I’ll be the one trying to smile :)))))))))))))))))))))

GOOD LUCK!

Love

Sami

WINNER! Who is sexier: The cover edition

3 Comments

Well, ladies, we have a winner of the “Who is Sexier: Cover Edition” post.

Because we like to pick winners randomly at the Down Under Divas, I first deleted all the answers that didn’t say “Rhythm Of My Heart” (ie, my cover) and then I closed my eyes and picked a number.

😀

Nah, not really.

I tossed ALL the numbers into a hat and drew one.

So, CONGRATS to Sara Gallagher!

You have won yourself a choice of any one book from the Divas’ backlists. Please check out our websites, and decide which book you’d like. Then email me at

jess@jessdee.com

with your selection and your preferred e-format.

Happy deciding,

Jess

Bernadette!!!!

Thank you both for taking the time to visit my blog and enter the competition. I’ll be emailing you shortly to arrange for delivery of the prize.

Commiserations to all those who didn’t win in this occasion. But I’ll be doing more giveaways over the next couple of months when Unforgettable Summer releases, so stick around!

Have a good weekend,

Choice no 1: Rhian’s December release: 7 Minutes in Heaven

Choice no 2: Lexxie’s October release, Steady Beat

Choice no 3: Sami’s November release, Unforgettable Summer

Choice no 4: Jess’s October release, Rhythm Of My heart

So, waddya think?

The Contest Continues…

pleasingthedoctor_msrI posted about this at my blog the other day and promised I would also mention it here for those who missed it. Read on for your chance to win a naughty novella!

I’m pleased to announce that my naughty little BDSM elements novella is finally available at all third party sites, including Amazon! Anyone who has been waiting to get it in Kindle format you are now free to do so. Yay!

To celebrate, I thought I’d give away two copies of Pleasing the Doctor to two lucky commenter.

So what is Pleasing the Doctor about? Alice is a divorcee who hasn’t had sex since she left her husband, and figures a no strings one night stand is in order to get her back in the sexual race. Too bad her blind date is a total dud. Enter Dr Damien De Luca, a doctor from out of town (or so she thinks) who chases off her bad date and proceeds to take her on a kinky journey that shows her the submissive side of herself.

But can a woman who had to fight hard for independence really get into a relationship with a guy who expects obedience?

I think Alice is going to have fun finding out, don’t you? :)

Pleasing the Doctor is now available at Ellora’s Cave, Booktopia, Barnes & Noble, ARe, Amazon or your favourite e book retailer.

Below are five of my favourite snippets from the book. Vote for the best  in the comments for your chance to win one of two copies of the book:

1. Heat spiraled inside her, expanding like a phoenix that rose, wings stretching, from the ashes of her once healthy sexual appetite. Flames flickered to life, fanned by the weight of Damien’s hand resting on her thigh. On top of the dress, not under it like Ron, yet it seemed so, so much more intimate.

2.  She didn’t even want to imagine how Damien De Luca would behave if he wasn’t holding back.

That was a lie. She did want to, was already imagining it in fact. He was the take-charge type. If they were alone he’d have her pinned to the wall by now, his mouth on hers, his hands… Her breathing quickened as she pictured all the places she’d be willing to let him put his hands. Basically everywhere. And his tongue—his impossibly arrogant, clever tongue. She wanted that everywhere too.

Her nether regions throbbed, a hard pulse of base lust. She was hot for him. A complete stranger who’d barely touched her and she was fired up like a race car that had been held back in the pit too long.

3.  Still without looking at him, Alice gathered her evening bag from where she’d hooked it over the back of the barstool and stood. “Well, that was…” She had no words, something that would have shocked her ex-husband Cal. He always told her she talked everything to death, that it took all the fun out of things. Not so boring now, am I, Cal? Boring people didn’t let strangers finger them in public. She was pretty sure it was against the boring person code.

4.  “It’s been over a year, so forgive me if I don’t know what the hell I’m doing.”

Damien loosened his grip on her, gave her a little space. “You want me to be gentle with you?”

“God, no.” Alice struggled not to blush again as Damien laughed at her blurted response.

He released her entirely and stepped back, eyeing her as though seeing her for the first time. “You know, I think I really like you.”

Alice shrugged, using humor to pretend she wasn’t warmed by the declaration as she followed him farther into the room. “You’re quite lickable yourself.”

He cocked a brow at her intentional mispronunciation. “Tell you what, I’ll let you lick anything you want…if you take off your dress.”

5.  “Don’t be scared. I got carried away but I can slow down if you need me to. It’s hard because you’re so sexy. And so beautifully submissive.” He angled her head back so he could look at her. “You had no idea, did you?”

Alice’s lips trembled. Her voice did too. “I h-have a good job. I’m a team leader at a bank. I have my own money. I left a marriage that didn’t make me happy.” Realizing her cheeks were wet, Alice hid her face in his shoulder once again. “I’m not weak,” she finished, ignoring the fact that physically, right now, she was just that. Weak and tremulous and needy.

“I know you’re not. You’re strong—strong enough for me.”

So what do you think? Let me know!

Sami

PS I’ll leave this comp open until Friday and announce the winners here!
