Jill's Blog

Welcome to my daily blog. If this is your first time, I'm a romance writer and a misplaced city girl currently living in the wild Sierras. I tend to have a lot of I-Love-Lucy moments that I share here but sometimes we talk about books, TV, and our favorite cookies. Okay, my favorite cookies. In any case, please feel free to comment by clicking on the Comments at the bottom of any entry. If you're too shy, that's okay, just know I love having you.

Monday Blues

Here’s how I feel about today…


I blame my back. It’s still bad and I’m pouting over having to miss Romantic Times Reader Convention. I’m thinking it’s a stay in pj’s and pretend it’s still Sunday sort of day. Who’s with me?

Bear Friday

Hi, so sorry I didn’t do a blog yesterday, I couldn’t log in. This is most likely due to my I Love Lucy status and my wonderful web person is working on it.

In the meantime, take a look at this guy, who we found playing in the yard with Alpha Man’s stuff. You can’t tell but he’s the size of a VW. The pic’s blurry because I was in an understandable hurry. :)


Hope you have a great weekend. But before you go, tell me what creatures you find in YOUR yard…

Hump Day

The scene I’m trying to write:


What I’m doing instead:


How about you all, how’s your week going? What are you reading?

The news…

So my stupid back is bad again and I had to miss my plane this morning to the RT conference in New Orleans. Am trying one last ditch effort at relief with an epideral steroid procedure this week and then … surgery in August.


Feeling pretty sorry for myself, send cookies…

p.s. but the good news is that the family all feels bad for me so they’re actually behaving. For now…

Name that book…

Update: Winners, randomly drawn, are: Stacey Masterson, Jennifer Howard, and Stephanie B. Contact me with a few book choices and whether you want print or ebook. :)

Original post: You know the drill. Name the book of mine that this excerpt came from. I will draw three names, winners get their choice of my backlist.

“Duct tape and a Trojan,” he said. “Big plans for the day?”

Yep, that’s it, that’s your whole clue. Cuz I’m evil like that. Go!
