Jiffy Kate is the joint pen name for Jiff Simpson and Jenny Kate Altman.

Jiff was born and raised in Louisiana. She’s now living in Texas with her two teenagers and two bulldogs, Georgia Rose and Jake. She spends her days enabling people’s LulaRoe addictions. Don’t worry, it’s not illegal.

Jenny Kate was born and raised in Oklahoma where she lives with her husband, teenager, and two high-maintenance Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Wrigley and Oliver. She’s a coffee-obsessed accounting assistant, who wishes she had an endless supply of money and vacation days.

Some people think they’ve been friends forever, but they’ve only known each other about six years. Kindred spirits and all that. After their first “date”, they knew it was fate. Five years ago, they started writing their first story and they haven’t stopped.  

Their first published book, Finding Focus, was released in November 2015. Since then, they’ve published the second book of the Finding Focus Series, Chasing Castles, and a new adult romance, The Other One. 

If you like a romance set in the south, then you’ll love their southern fried fiction with heart and soul.

The graphics were keeping the email from sending. So, I'll send those in a few separate emails.

Summer’s Lease an all-new romance by Carrie Elks is coming July 13th!

Meet the Shakespeare family: four sisters, four stories . . . four ways to find true love

Cesca Shakespeare has hit rock bottom. Six years after the play she wrote bombed at the box office, she's unable to hold down a job, keep an apartment, and worst of all her family have no idea how far she's fallen. So when her fairy Godfather offers her the use of his friend's Italian villa for the summer, she grudgingly agrees to try writing a new play. That's before she finds out the house belongs to her arch-nemesis, Sam Carlton.

When Hollywood heart-throb Sam Carlton sees his name splashed across a gossip rag, all he wants to do is hide. That's how he finds himself traveling to Italy, deciding to spend the summer in his family's empty villa on Lake Como. Except when he arrives it isn't as empty as he'd hoped.

Over the course of the hot Italian summer, Cesca and Sam have to come to terms with their pasts. What begins as a tentative friendship quickly grows into an intense attraction - and then a scorching fling. But they can't hide from reality forever . . . as their different worlds collide, Sam and Cesca face a choice: is this just a summer romance, or could their love weather even the coldest winds?

A brand new series from the bestselling author of Fix You and the Love in London series.

<![CDATA[Cover Reveal! Cutlass by T.M. Franklin #romance]]>Thu, 15 Jun 2017 23:30:00 GMT/blog/cover-reveal-cutlass-by-tm-franklin-romance

I'm so excited to share the cover of T.M. Franklin's upcoming pirate adventure, CUTLASS!

 photo Cutlass eBook Cover_zpssodp8jy7.jpg

Sarina Talbot is certain notorious pirate, One-Eyed Jack Tremayne, murdered her father and stole his prized cutlass. Out for revenge, she sneaks onto his ship disguised as a cabin boy, but Tremayne quickly catches on to her scheme. He claims she has the wrong man, and that, if they work together, he can help her gain the vengeance she seeks.

She doesn't really trust him, and he doesn't trust anyone. But they need each other to find the killer, and their uneasy alliance slowly turns to friendship, and then to more.

Add in an old journal full of cryptic clues leading to a hidden cache of Aztec gold, and Sarina and Tremayne have their hands full. Between sword fights, Crown ships, enemy pirates and a traitor on their own vessel, they'll be lucky to escape with their lives, let alone the gold.

But perhaps, along the way, they'll find a treasure even more valuable.

Melanie Moreland lives a happy and content life in a quiet area of Ontario with her beloved husband of twenty-six-plus years. Nothing means more to her than her friends and family, and she cherishes every moment spent with them.


Known as the quiet one with the big laugh, Melanie works at a local university and for its football team.  Her job, while demanding, is rewarding as she cheers on her team to victory.


While seriously addicted to coffee, and highly challenged with all things computer-related and technical, she relishes baking, cooking, and trying new recipes for people to sample. She loves to throw dinner parties,  and also enjoys travelling, here and abroad, but finds coming home is always the best part of any trip. 


Melanie delights in a good romance story with some bumps along the way, but is a true believer in happily ever after.  When her head isn’t buried in a book, it is bent over a keyboard, furiously typing away as her characters dictate their creative storylines to her, often with a large glass of wine keeping her company.

The Years Between Us by Ayden K. Morgen

All she wanted was for him to be her first kiss. Instead, he may just be her first heartbreak...
 
Logan Redfield is everything Hope Tollison is not: legal, gorgeous, and more than a little wild. Sixteen-year-old Hope wants him anyway. She has since the very first moment she tripped and fell into his arms. Unfortunately for her, Logan refuses to cross that line. Instead, he keeps them firmly entrenched in the friend zone.
 
Hope waits for him anyway, eager for the day she's finally old enough to take that kiss.
 
What she doesn't know might just destroy her though...
 
Falling for a teenager was never part of Logan's plans. He's too old and too messed up for a sweet girl like Hope. But when he finds himself falling for her anyway, he's forced to do whatever it takes to ignore the way he feels for the one girl he shouldn't want. Even if that means making her hate him for the rest of her life.
 
After all, letting her go is the only honorable thing to do.
 
At least that's what Logan believes... right up until he loses the only future worth fighting for: one with Hope. Now he has to lay it all on the line and convince her to set aside the years between them and trust him with her heart one final time.
 
Can he do it, or has he broken her beyond repair?

A Still Life by Jo Richardson

Charlotte Sweets has it all. Parents that are still married, great SAT scores, friends, sports, and highly sought after A.P. grades. 
 
Heath Gooding is just a kid from the wrong side of the river, satisfied that he makes it through each day without getting killed. His goals include living until he’s twenty, and saving up enough money to get out of the Rapids alive.
 
When Charlotte’s school visits Heath’s side of town for a volunteer project, the two of them cross paths and find that maybe they aren’t as happy with the status quo as they once thought.

Love Wanted by Jeanne McDonald
WANTED:
An athletic, confident, visually stimulating man who will end up being yet another heartbreaking disappointment.

Xtine McCoy believes in true love. Soul mates. The one. However, the one never seems to be the guy she chooses. Tired of watching Xtine being kicked around by her romantic whims, her friends take matters into their own hands and force her to date outside her comfort zone.

On paper, Sherman Campbell appears to be everything she’s been looking for. He’s funny, kind, smart, and titillating. The perfect man. That is, until they meet. Caught up by her own preconceived notions of a romantic hero, Xtine struggles to see past the court jester for the knightly prince.

Can Sherman help Xtine find the true love she seeks or will he prove to her once and for all that all men, no matter the type, are the same?


Heart Strings by Melanie Moreland
A young executive. A street-wise musician.
Two worlds that never should intersect.
Until they do.
Charlotte Preston is tired of the world she inhabits. Her life consists of meetings, deadlines, and budgets. She is surrounded by chaos—stuck in a job she hates, and a life that is slowly killing her. The only thing that brings her happiness and peace is him.
Montgomery Logan is the voice that soothes her at the end of the day. He’s the stranger with the whiskey-colored eyes whose music is the balm to her weary soul.
They never speak. At least not with words.
Until one day things change.
Can their worlds combine? Can they see past their differences for the people they are within? Or will they forever be defined by outward appearance?


The Years Between Us by Ayden K. Morgen
All she wanted was for him to be her first kiss. Instead, he may just be her first heartbreak...

Logan Redfield is everything Hope Tollison is not: legal, gorgeous, and more than a little wild. Sixteen-year-old Hope wants him anyway. She has since the very first moment she tripped and fell into his arms. Unfortunately for her, Logan refuses to cross that line. Instead, he keeps them firmly entrenched in the friend zone.

Hope waits for him anyway, eager for the day she's finally old enough to take that kiss.

What she doesn't know might just destroy her though...

Falling for a teenager was never part of Logan's plans. He's too old and too messed up for a sweet girl like Hope. But when he finds himself falling for her anyway, he's forced to do whatever it takes to ignore the way he feels for the one girl he shouldn't want. Even if that means making her hate him for the rest of her life.

After all, letting her go is the only honorable thing to do.

At least that's what Logan believes... right up until he loses the only future worth fighting for: one with Hope. Now he has to lay it all on the line and convince her to set aside the years between them and trust him with her heart one final time.

Can he do it, or has he broken her beyond repair?

A Still Life by Jo Richardson
Charlotte Sweets has it all. Parents that are still married, great SAT scores, friends, sports, and highly sought after A.P. grades.  

Heath Gooding is just a kid from the wrong side of the river, satisfied that he makes it through each day without getting killed. His goals include living until he’s twenty, and saving up enough money to get out of the Rapids alive.

When Charlotte’s school visits Heath’s side of town for a volunteer project, the two of them cross paths and find that maybe they aren’t as happy with the status quo as they once thought.

<![CDATA[You don't have to write everyday. #writing #advice]]>Sun, 09 Apr 2017 13:13:39 GMT/blog/you-dont-have-to-write-everyday-writing-adviceI have a confession to make: sometimes, I feel like a failure as an author. Not because of book sales or reviews, but because I'm simply tired.
 
For 12 hours a night, I dwell in chaos. We've got a residence burning in one area of the county. We've got deputies actively searching for a subject who fled from a traffic stop in another. We have a lady on the phone, begging for help because someone close to her has overdosed and won't wake up. We've got four different verbal disturbances and a fight in progress. Someone came home to find their home had been broken into. Someone else has fallen and needs help getting up. 911 lines are ringing off the hook. Non-emergency callers are holding while we deal with one emergency after another. Deputies are on the radios, trying to get or give information. They need an ambulance here, a wrecker there, the coroner over there, and another agency contacted about X or Y. Five different fire departments are out on calls, and they're on the radios, talking to us or to one another. My coworkers and I are yelling across the room to relay information over the roar of radios and ringing phone lines. Another coworker is on the phone, yelling to capture the attention of the man on the other end of the line, the one who's too busy screaming and cursing at her to tell her what his address is.
 
For 12 hours a night, that's my life. On nights when we're lucky, chaos comes and goes in waves, allowing us to breathe and catch up before the next wave hits. On other nights, from the minute we walk in the door until the moment we walk out, there's something going on somewhere. On the ride home in the mornings, I ride in silence…it's the first little bit of peace and quiet I've had all night long. I'm exhausted. My mind is running a million miles a minute. I'm starving. I just want to go home and sleep.
 
And that's what I do. I sleep. Because I have to be up in a few hours to do it all over again, and I'm tired. I'm emotional. I'm sad.
 
For the last year, I've been in completely unfamiliar territory.
 
I remember exactly when the landscape changed, too.
 
"It's likely that, in the next few years, you'll be diagnosed with colon cancer."
 
That's the sentence that did it. That's the one that reminded me that I'm not invincible. I can't do everything and be everywhere and help everyone. I wasn't ready for that sentence, or everything that came after it.
 
I wasn't even sure why I was sent to her in the first place. I thought I had food poisoning and my PCP was overreacting.
 
Turns out, I was wrong. Because that sentence is the one a doctor I'd met only once before gave me two days after removing a tumor from my colon. I had twenty minutes to process those words before I had to set them aside and drive to work. Because someone else's crisis superseded mine.
 
I figured things would go back to normal soon enough. But it didn't. I got sicker. And I got more words I wasn't prepared to hear.
 
Crohn's. Medication. Recurrent pneumonia. Inflammation in my lungs. Inflammation in my shoulder. More medication. More tests. More doctors.
 
Last year, my entire life changed, and sometimes, I think I forgot to change with it.
 
I worry about everything I eat and how it's going to affect me. I do my best to take my medication on time, every time. I try to exercise and make those life changes that I need to make. I read up about Crohn's and how to manage it and what to look for.
 
And I still try to do everything and be everywhere and help everyone. I still hold myself to a standard that, sometimes, I can't meet anymore. And I still do so much of it mostly alone.
 
SS has been a trooper. So have my coworkers. But a lot of my friends, and even members of my family, have kind of disappeared. They don't call. They don't write. They don't visit or even text to say hey. They live in the same state, in driving distance, and I don't hear from them. Maybe they don't know what to say or how to help. Maybe they just don't want to do so. I don't know.
 
But it takes a toll. It's another issue clamoring for attention when I'm already overburdened with issues clamoring for attention.
 
Finding the time to write through it all is hard. Finding the energy is even harder.
 
After dealing with problems and drama and emergencies all night long, I struggle to find the energy to write about fictional conflicts. Sometimes, I feel like I'm failing. I have countless unread emails. Messages not responded to. I have deadlines missed and half-finished stories clamoring for their turn. Sometimes, I remind myself that, contrary to popular belief, NOT writing every day doesn't make me less of an author. It makes me human.
 
But sometimes, that reminder isn't enough to keep the niggling doubts away. Sometimes, I get so fucking frustrated because I want to write. I love writing. But I don't do it every day. I can't do it every day. I want to do it, but I I have a thousand other things going on in my life, and sometimes, those things take priority.
 
And that shouldn't feel like such a big "no-no".
 
It's okay if you can't write every day. You aren't failing.
 
Why isn't THAT the message we shout from the rooftops to writers struggling to make it home to cook dinner for the family at a decent hour before rushing the kids off to bed instead of telling them that they "must write every day to be a writer"? Why aren't we telling women like me that, hey, it's okay if you're too fucking exhausted to pick up a pen or open a Word document at the end of the day? Why aren't we reminding each other that, whether you write 50,000 words this month or 500, you're STILL a writer?
 
You are. Even through months when you struggle to write a single paragraph. Even through days when you don't say a word on Facebook to your readers. Even in those moments when you don't feel like you're good enough because life is kicking you in the teeth and you're too fucking tired to deal.
 
You're still a writer.
 
No one can take that away from you. Not even that little niggling doubt in the back of your mind.
 
You're still a writer.
 
And so I am.]]>
