SOUL MATE is one of the raving great stories of 1Night Stands at Decadent Publishing, this is Jane Rochester's first book!
APPLAUSE for a new author!
And since vampires are a thing of daily, sunny delight, here is Jane's for you.
What is it?
After her friend buys her a date from Madame Evangeline’s 1Night Stand service, Nora isn’t sure she can go through with it. Especially when she sees her date walk in. He’s way out of her league in more ways than just looks.

Yet, I seem to find so many these days between the pages of fiction.
I want a man who needs to achieve something other than...well, taking a woman to bed.
Why do I see so many men in erotic fiction who seem to have nothing else going on but desire?
Are they all bound up in our own expectations of intense, erotic coupling that we have no need to see them with sensitivities, flaws and the ability to change and adapt to their chosen mates?
Do you see this? Or am I just in the middle of a bad patch where hopping into bed ain't all there is?

Emily's Destiny is a "shifter" story in which no actual shifting takes place!
First of all, my characters are 'changelings', which means they can take the form of any living creature. Why? Because that seems really cool to me! You could fly, run, climb or swim depending on the situation. What about actually being the eavesdropping bug on the wall?? There is narrative regarding Emily, Colby and Darrin taking different forms, but the reader never sees it.
What I wanted to explore, in a very short book, was the dynamic of a non-human threesome!! Colin is a force to be reckoned with; commanding, powerful and animalistic is the most yummy ways. Darrin is equally as powerful but not quite as alpha, definitely more layed back and playful. Emily is modern, a wee-bit more human, and, gasp, a virgin!
Did I have big fun writing this story? Yes, yes I did!
Have a fantastic weekend~

In A LONG TIME COMIN', my heroine Cait Hagerty owns a vintage clothing shop on the River Walk in San Antonio. (Trust me, this area is no low rent district! So she must earn BUCKS, baby, BUCKS!) Now Cait has in her shop has the only copy of the gown ever made for Marilyn Monroe when she sang Happy Birthday to JFK in 1962.
(THIS copy is fiction.)
But this line of thinking gave me a few ideas on my heroine's personality.
Who is Cait?
A woman who likes old dresses. Okay.
But she also is rather traditional in other aspects.
She is a calm, reserved business woman who knows how to navigate the world. She understands her lover's challenges and copes with them. Perhaps better than he does!
So owning a vintage clothing store also got me a plus: I could talk about Cait's figure. Always a great idea when writing erotic romance! I could write also about the absolutely out of this world gown. WHICH incidentally, Marilyn had to be sewn into the night--the only night--she wore it when she sang Happy Birthday to John F. Kennedy at Madison Square Garden.
Only weeks before she died of an overdose.
The other thing you need to know about vintage clothes, this dress and their value?
MM's dress is a good example. In 1999, this dress sold at Christies' auction house for... ready? $1,267,500.00
Lots of dinero.

CIAO, my lovelies!

I can tell you I’m writing. Since the first of the month I’ve written about 5k. It feels good and the story is really taking shape in my mind. This is my first attempt at writing paranormal and a shape shifter so I hope I don’t disappoint anyone. :o)
I’m having a good time. I’m jealous of my writing partner too. All I can tell you is she’s going to blow you away with her book. I wake up every morning anticipating what she’s added. Katalina will not disappoint any of her readers.
They’re calling for high 60s today in New England. I’m going to enjoy the warm weather, because it will likely snow tomorrow.

Happy All Saints and All Soul's Day!
So far so good. I feel like I cleared the first tough hurdle of just getting a new project moving.
Here’s the thing…I loved the premise too. That’s why I wrote it in the first place.
This year I’m going in with my guns half-blazing. LOL I plan to complete a book, but one of only 20-25k. I don’t have time for stress and trying to reach a 50k goal would stress me out. This is also the first paranormal book I’ve ever written.
Someday I’ll go back to one of those full length novels and edit it, but for now I’m happy with my writing life. It works for me.
How about you? Will you be taking the NaNo Challenge?
