To get these shots of Tanner, I had to keep snapping photos. At first, I just watched his antics, thinking he would stop and that was enough. But he didn’t, so I grabbed up my camera and began taking pictures.

Both, I think! Have a great day!

New historical cover reveal for Conqueror Vanquished!
Ooooh, revealing a new cover is one of the many fun, exciting things about being an author. And for an indie author it’s even more thrilling, because they have the final say in how the artwork looks, rather than being dependent on a publisher’s art department.

So, without further ado… [drumroll please]

Here is the new cover for my Roman historical novella, Conqueror Vanquished:


  
I LOVE this guy’s pose! It perfectly conveys the strength and power of my hero. And, combined with the title, it lets a romance reader know that a woman will conquer this man’s heart, no matter how strong he may be physically J

Isn’t that what love is all about?

Try as she might, my cover artist could not fit a picture of my heroine on the cover without it looking like my hero was about to stab her or knock her out with his shield.  And if we put her behind my hero’s shoulder, it looked like she was a disembodied ghost floating around. Just didn’t work. So I opted for only the hero, and I’m very happy with the way the cover turned out.

And hopefully, since I write romance – and this story will be categorized on amazon, B&N, Kobo, iBooks, etc under ‘romance’ – readers will know what they’re getting.

I’m particularly proud of this story, because I researched it tirelessly for historical accuracy. Rome’s sixth legion actually WAS in service in France in 52 B.C. and the legion’s standard really was a powerful bull on a blood red flag. And the Roman army! They were a terrifying, vast group of soldiers – definitely a force to be reckoned with.

For me, the best historical fiction always teaches a reader some new things about its particular time period. I hope you might learn some interesting tidbits from Conqueror Vanquished about ancient Rome, in addition to falling in love with my hero Leonidas and my heroine Solange.

Until next month,

Leigh



A Viewing to Remember


Spring is an amazing season. Flowers bloom, baby animals are born, the world awakens, and…people attend funerals. Yeah, I know that last one is a bummer, but it’s true. I’ve attended at least three funerals in the last eight weeks. A distant relative died, then a small child with leukemia who the community had rallied around, and finally a co-worker. There’s a certain kind of stress to dealing with loss, even if you’re not that close to those who passed. As it happened, I was actually semi-close to the co-worker in a very indirect way, but that’s not why it was stressful. It was stressful because my cousin, whom we’ll call Bonnie, is friends with a really close friend of the co-worker, and that friend, apparently, doesn’t wear rings that fit. 
And thus begins the whole story…
The person who passed away, we’ll call him Joe, was a co-worker of mine, but in a completely different department in another branch in a suburb of our city. In other words, I didn’t know him at all and barely recognized his name. However, one of my colleagues who did his same job and collaborated with him all the time because she traveled from site to site knew him really well and was devastated by the loss. This co-worker, whom we’ll call Lena, wanted to go to the viewing but hates anything death-related and needed emotional support to pay her last respects. I volunteered to go with her because Lena is a lovely soul and because viewings don’t bother me in the least. As it turns out, Lena is also friends with my cousin Bonnie, who also volunteered to go to the viewing as moral support. So Lena and Bonnie and I all end up going to the viewing to pay respects to Joe. Simple enough?
Oh, hardly.
We get to the funeral parlor and everything seems to be going to plan. Lena is weeping with Joe’s wife and children and mother and cousins (he came from a HUGE family) and then shuffles, sobbing, to the casket to view her friend one last time. Bonnie and I hang out on the fringes, both of us being respectful and me interacting with my colleagues who knew Joe to varying degrees when we weren’t reading the cards on the flowers. Finally, Lena heads our way and we’re all ready to leave. We get to my car—I drove—and suddenly Lena lets out a shriek.
“I’ve lost my wedding ring!”
She shouts this in the middle of the parking lot with mourners ambling by, and they all look at her like, “Who cares? Joe’s dead.”
But Bonnie and I cared. We knew, in Lena’s mental state, losing her wedding ring would be tipping point from upset to hysterical, or maybe even wigged completely out. We calmed her down and finally surmised that her ring had been in place up to the point of—you guessed it—viewing Joe.
So Bonnie, being rather fearless and goal-oriented, decided to backtrack and followed Lena’s footsteps from the time she entered the viewing until she left, paying special attention to the part where Bonnie wept over Joe in the casket. Let me just say this at this point that I should have known better than to trust Bonnie.
Because here’s what happened: She gets to the casket and acts mournful in a way that allows her to scope the area around the deceased. As it turns out, Lena, who’d recently lost weight, had put her hand on the side of the casket long enough for the ring in question to drop into the bedding, or whatever you call that stuff on the inside of a casket. Bonnie spots the ring waaaaaay down in the bottom of the bedding, nearly under Joe’s arm. If one more mourner sobs loud enough over the casket, the ring will slide deep into the lining and it will take some digging around to get to it.
As fate would have it, a very large co-worker, Maggie, who is very…large, leaned over the casket sobbing uncontrollably next to Bonnie, and Bonnie watched Lena’s ring take the plunge into the depths of “Your wedding ring is getting buried with a dead guy-ville.”
But you must remember Bonnie is my cousin. And we both grew up with superstitious crazy people who held the belief that if you don’t touch the dead person whose viewing it is, you’ll have dreams about them. So my cousin and I grew up touching a lot of dead people. Therefore, Bonnie has no compunction about retrieving Lena’s ring. However, Bonnie was not raised under a barn, so she knows that digging around in a casket for something might make a few people very uncomfortable and cause a scene. The best way to offset that, Bonnie figured, was to…cause a scene.
So, Bonnie starts wailing and thrashing around the casket and Joe, throwing herself across the body and choking through her tears. People are horrified, and it takes three funeral parlor workers to pull her off Joe.
I know all this because, knowing Bonnie, who promised to get Lena’s ring back “no matter what,” I found myself a window to peak through and see what was going on. It was like driving past a car accident…I couldn’t look away.
By the time the funeral director, a security officer, and two other mourners escorted Bonnie to the parking lot, where she fell dramatically into my arms, the ruse was in full effect. I think, at one point, Bonnie believed her own grief, even though she didn’t even know Joe. All I can say is, "That's my cousin!"
As soon as her grim-faced escorts hustled back into the viewing, Bonnie grinned and held up something shiny. As soon as Lena saw it, she squealed, grabbed it, and gave Bonnie a huge bear hug. Apparently, Bonnie had been digging around for Lena’s ring as she crawled all over Joe under false pretenses, and she finally got it.

We all drove home in silence—Bonnie grinning in triumph, Lena smiling at her ring, and me checking the rearview mirror for the police, because it’s got to be some kind of felony to fake grief to retrieve a wedding ring and grope a a newly deceased person under false pretenses.

Well, that’s my spring so far. How’s yours going? Please do share in the comments.
Golden Fae




Art project: beautiful woman with golden make-up. Jewelry, make-up. Fashion. Over black background.


How does the golden fae get into big time trouble with one fiery dragon? When playing with fire…


All the golden fae wanted to do was to pick mushrooms for her
mother—in the forbidden dragon fae territory, but Kayla sees dragons
practicing for their games, and she gets caught at it. She loses her
locket that she needs to have when she comes of age in just a couple of
weeks so she can keep her magic as a lavender grower for the golden fae.
Only now, one highly annoying dragon shifter fae has got it, and she
will do anything to get it back.


Alton can’t believe it when the golden fae arrives at his friend’s
castle wearing the dragon fae aura now! But he has a mission to go on,
save a human and a dragon fae in the human world, and Kayla ends up
there offering to help—anything to get him to give her locket back to
her. Only a fae seer shoots him with an iron bolt, and Kayla risks
everything, trying to get him and the captured maid safely back home
again.


Now he will do almost anything to learn the mysterious golden fae’s secrets, and protect her from his own kind at all costs.

Overview

Gunnolf was left for dead when he was young as he went on one of his kin’s raids, but finds his way to the Highlands and a home with the MacNeill Clan. The clan’s seer warns him he must rescue a woman in need, only he rescues the wrong woman. Yet, Brina is in need. Her father, wounded in battle by Gunnolf’s own kind, must oust the tyrant who has taken his place if he is to rule. Yet he needs Gunnolf’s help, but Gunnolf learns Brina’s father had killed Gunnolf’s brother.

Brina is torn between hating the Viking who has rescued her, and knowing that his kin had killed her grandfather in an age old tale of fighting between their people, and loving the man who took her under his protection, and the wolf cub she insists on rescuing.

Now, Gunnolf must make a choice: wed the lass as her father has insisted and restore her father’s position as chief of his clan when he’s not sure her father is trustworthy, hoping he can obtain a peace between his people and hers, or leave well enough alone and stay with the MacNeill Clan, his family for the past ten years. The problem is one sweet Highland lass that makes him want a woman–this woman–to warm his bed and have his bairns and to protect and cherish, when having a wife was the furthest notion from his mind…until one prediction changed his whole life.

Why Do I Write? Let Me Count The Ways...
I guess I was destined to be a writer. I’ve always been a great reader, and I believe that’s the best foundation for becoming an author. You can learn so much about writing just by osmosis from reading good books!

There are 688 fiction books in my house (yep, I just counted them). They're in the room I affectionately refer to as 'the library.' Plus, there's another 462 non-fiction books (including biographies, reference books, travel guides, etc) in the family room.

Don’t believe me?

Half of the bookcase in the library
The non-fiction titles in the family room

There are books in nearly every room of my house. Here’s a shot of part of the 3-shelf bookcase of reference works I keep on hand in my office for research for some of my stories…

Reference books
















And here’s the growing To Be Read pile sitting by the side of my bed…

To Be Read pile
















And let’s not even count the e-books waiting on my Kindle and iPad! So many books… so little time [sigh].

Is it any wonder I became a writer? Louisa May Alcott once said, “She is too fond of books, and it has addled her brain.” NOT! If anything, reading has expanded my brain, letting me learn about amazing places, historical events, and allowing me to escape into adventures I would never be able to experience in my real life.

I’d rather offer my own quotes:

-Romance authors have the write stuff

-Who needs a man when you can have a book between the covers?

-Buy a book, and a tree lives forever!

-I have the need to read.

-If romance is the spice of life, marinade me in it!

-A good book is better than a bad man, no contest.

But I’ll leave you today with my favorite romance author quote of all…

“…and they lived happily ever after!”

Until next month,

Jenna
