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.

Tuesday Tidbits…

So I have this odd soapy taste in my mouth which is annoying the heck out of me, and I went to the source of all truth to figure it out.

The internet.

Anyway, Mr. Internet had two reasons for this weird phenom. One, I’m allergic to cilantro. Or two…

I’m being slowly poisoned.

I asked Alpha Man if there was anything he wanted to tell me. He said yes, he’d eaten the last of the Mint Milanos.

So probably I’m just allergic to cilantro…

Oh San Fran…

So I’m in San Francisco this week visiting Oldest and Middle. The view from Oldest’s apartment is also today’s writing view.


And of course there’s Mini Coop, the most adorable foster-fur-baby fail ever!!!


Seriously. Not sure how much writing I’ll get done here … :cool:

Fall in Tahoe

So in one day, fall arrived…


So pretty …


The colors…


I live in heaven! How about you, how’s your fall, where are you and what’s your weather?

Happy Hump Day

For today’s Happy Hump Day post I went looking for one of my current pretend boyfriends…


Captain America. Chris Evans, call me… (you know that if he ever really did, I’d expire on the spot, right?)

Anyway, who are your current pretend boyfriends? (Sexy Keane Winters, by any chance, from THE TROUBLE WITH MISTOETOE, out now? :)

Tuesday Tidbits

Which of the following, in any combination, happened to me yesterday?

1. Searched for my iPhone … before remembering I was actually using it at the time.
2. Found my missing keys in the silverware drawer.
3. Dropped my phone off the trail where it fell ten feet to some rocks and I managed to destroy the supposedly undestroyable Lifeproof case for my iPhone.
4. Let’s the dogs out to tinkle, stood on the porch waiting for them, and then got distracted and went back inside forgetting the dogs until they barked an hour later to come in. God knows WHAT they did during that hour…
5. To my eternal shame, I watched a marathon of Real Housewives of Orange County. I hate myself…

I’ll draw a few names of the correct guessers who will win a Shalvis knapsack:


Worth playing for? Oh and p.s. do you have your copy of THE TROUBLE WITH MISTLETOE yet? It came out last week and I’d love to know what everyone thinks!

Monday Musings

5 random facts about myself on this lovely Monday:

I eat more cookies than I should.
I wear yoga pants every day but I don’t do yoga.
I have too many pets but I can’t help myself.
I think of myself as a reader first and a writer second.
I was a journalism major in college but turns out you can’t make stuff up in nonfiction so I moved over to fiction.

How about you? Any random fact(s) you wanna share with the room? Three of you will win either ONE SNOWY NIGHT or ACCIDENTALLY ON PURPOSE (assuming you already have THE TROUBLE WITH MISTLETOE :)
