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.

Need some help with…

(update: winners, randomly drawn, are: DENISE JACKSON and AMY DUDLEY, email me with what you read your digital books on so I can send appropriate version)

…a research question. Okay, two. Two very important research questions.

1. Tats or no?
2. Chest hair or no?

Two random winners will get my 12/2 holiday novella MERRY CHRISTMAS BABY. Go. 😈

Alpha Man (on the phone):
On my way home, what do you want for dinner?

Um, I’m good.

Alpha Man:
You’re good? What does that mean, you always want dinner.

No, really, I’m good, I don’t need anything.

Alpha Man:
‘Xplain, Lucy.

We have a bad connection, gotta go.

Alpha Man:
You need more phlegm in your fake static. Tell me the truth. You just ate a huge bowl of Captain Crunch again and already have a stomach ache, right?

Me? No, of course not. You hid the Captain Crunch.

Alpha Man:
Which has never stopped you. I’m at the store. You need the usual?


Alpha Man:
Pepto-Bisol coming up…

A Monday catch all

Some of you aren’t on social media and have asked me to keep you up to date on my shenanigans on FB and Twitter. Here’s a few things I posted this past week:

First of all, you all have ONE IN A MILLION already, yes?


Oh here is how I see sexy Tanner Riggs from the book…


And this happened outside my window:


And last but not least, my writing view… Lake Tahoe.


Off I go to write some pages. Before you go, let us know what you’re reading? Good? Bad? I’d love to hear!

Anyway, wanted to have a random giveaway today. What are you doing/wearing for Halloween this year? I’ll be giving away books to random commenters!

Hump Day, scroll down, you won’t be disappointed

Hey for those of you who are Lucky Harbor lovers, I’ve got a $1.99 Lucky Harbor short Christmas story featuring sexy Sawyer Thompson and the wildcard Chloe Traeger coming 12/2… And let’s just say this is my love letter to you, the best romance readers on the planet.


I love this story, mostly because I love Sawyer and Chloe SO MUCH. Anyway, I want you all to sit down. You sitting? Okay now this is digital only. I’m sorry! Not my decision! BUT … I promise you it’s short and can be easily read on your phone, your tablet, your computer, whatever you’re reading this blog on right now. You still with me? I hope so. I love you all and don’t like when you’re upset with me. πŸ˜‰

And to remind you what Sawyer looks like:


So you see, you really don’t want to miss him. Preorder and make an author’s day:
Amazon: still being a pill, Amazon won’t have up for purchase until 12/2, mark your calendars!

Now. Let me have it. Tell me what you think… and if you’ll consider preordering on your Nook or iBooks app on your phone or tablet, or if you’ll wait for Amazon, or if you’re mad at me. 😎

Tuesday’s Tidbits

UPDATE: Winners, randomly drawn are: SUSAN HAINES, MILLIE SWANK, and JACLYNE. Contact me with “Jill and Sarah” in the subject line and your choice of my book that will go out along with Sarah’s, and don’t forget your addy!

Original Post:
Dear friend Sarah Morgan has a book out today, MAYBE THIS CHRISTMAS. She’s here today telling the story of how we met:

Jill kindly invited me on here to celebrate the release of MAYBE THIS CHRISTMAS, so I thought share the story of how we met. It was summer 2013 in Atlanta, and we were both trying not to spill food down our dresses at the RITA Award ceremony. I thought then that she was possibly one of the nicest people I had ever met. Fast forward five months and we were both invited to a signing at Turn the Page Bookstore in Boonsboro, along with Nora Roberts. It was December. It snowed. Jill and I were snowed in for three nights.


We laughed, we wrote side by side, we ate cookies. By the end of those three nights I knew for sure Jill was one of the nicest people I’d ever met. And here’s the thing folks, SHE IS EXACTLY LIKE HER BOOKS. Warm, smart, funny and with a heart of gold. For the chance to win a copy of Sleigh Bells in the Snow, the first book in my O’Neil Brother’s series, tell me one thing you love about Jill’s books.

(and p.s. from Jill — I’ll be adding a giveaway of my own here, along with Sarah’s book, you’ll also win one of my books, your choice!)
