I know, I've been quiet this week. Had lots of writing to catch up on after last week's blog tour.

First, some big, fat, happy-happy joy-joy news!

Stellar Timing took first place in the On The Far Side contest, sci fi futuristic category! Yeah for Brennigan and Ellie!

Still searching for the right home for the stellerverse, but I'll be sure to keep you posted!

I was thinking about posting the first chapter or two here on the laundry list. I'll paste the blurb below, for anyone who hasn't read it.

Next up, I have another interview and a Redeeming Characters book giveaway going on over at Lady Scribes. Last shot at a free Drue this year, so stop by and say hi!

Back to work for me, I'm within 5 K of finishing another short and feel the need to hop to it.

Stellar Timing

The Moment You've All Been Waiting For...

But first, a few points of interest. (I know, thirty lashes with a wet noodle.)

While this marks the official end of the Redeeming Characters blog tour, I have another interview next week at
Lady Scribes, courtesy of author Samantha Grace and there will be another print book giveaway.

Still waiting to hear from my fab Friday hosts who won the autographed print copies from Friday's blog stops. I'll post it as soon as I know.

Speaking of winners...And the winner of the totebag from yesterday's post is....GAIL HART!!! Gail, I'll be sending that to you ASAP! Congrats!

Almost done...The week of Dec 21 voting opens on You Gotta Read Videos and the Redeeming Characters video is entry #9 this month. Votes would be most appreciated!

Thank you all so much for making this a truly special week for me. I am humbled and honored that you all took time out of your busy lives to follow me around and read whatever I happened to spew out. You have my gratitude and appreciation, (And some have …

Redeeming Characters Blog Tour LAST DAY!

Okay, since it is my mission in life to hog as much cyberspace as possible,
here's the interview with Drue from Wednesday. If your comment did not show up on the other blog, here's a second chance to comment for the win.

Instead of the typical author Q&A session, I’ve brought my hero from Redeeming Characters, Drue along so you can get to know him better. Drue, you’ve been called the antihero by some. Any thoughts on that?

Drue: Its no skin off my a—

Jenn: Keep it PG, bucko, okay? Why do you suppose you’ve been dubbed with this title?

Drue: Well, it probably has to do with my smart mouth and general attitude problem.
Jenn: Do you consider yourself an alpha male?
Drue: I’m more of a lone wolf—tend to avoid the pissing contests if I can help it. But I’m not going to let anyone boss me around either.

Jenn: I’ve always wondered why you worked in retail, specifically bookstores. Your personality doesn’t exactly scream customer service.

Drue:Couple of reasons. First, no degree re…

Redeeming Characters Blog Tour Day 5

Last tour day folks! You know how some musicians are better on tour than on an album? I'm starting to feel as though my mad showman ship skills have been undervalued in the past. Blog touring is hard, exhausting work but oh so much fun. I get such a rush communicating with readers. I haven't even thought about a real in person signing, think I would feel like a big old tool sitting in a bookstore while shoppers strolled on by. But if it was half as much fun as this... Maybe I will venture out and try to set up a book signing in the spring.

Anyhow, Lusha has spoken and the winner of the ebook PDF is.... VAL! Congrats, Val! email me at jlhart79at (@) gmail dot (.) com and let me know which PDF you want!

Today is another twofer blog hop day.
First, we have my pal Candi who is also giving away a top slot for Agent Shop this coming Sunday to anyone who leaves the word REDEEMING in the comments.

Blog: Musetracks
Host: Candi Wall
Prize: Autographed copy of Redeeming Characters!

Redeeming Characters Blog Tour Day 4

Okay, so that last blog stop was kind of a bust. I tried leaving a comment on it myself and as of 6:48 AM, this morning...nada.

Here's what we'll do. I'm going to post the same interview with Drue and the same prize here, on the Laundry List, on Saturday. That will be the one we count toward the blog tour winner. If you did leave a comment on yesterday's post, thank you for following but if I can't see it, I can't count it.

As of right now, Thursday morning, I've sent out all the prizes through Tuesday. In the event the comments DO show up on the other blog, I guess I'll be giving out two totebags. But remember, the Saturday interview with Drue here is a MUST if you want to win the Amazon Gift Card. I don't grade on curves.

And speaking of harsh task mistresses...welcome to today's main event. This is an adult blog, just FYI, Lusha Lovelace Writes Erotica. Don't say I didn't warn you!

Blog: No Limits
Host: Lusha Lovelace
Prize: A PDF file from…

Redeeming Characters Blog Tour Day 2

Well, day one was a success IMHO. I love giving stuff away, warms my heart and makes me giddy. Winner for the keychain is Kerri and as soon as I get the verdict in from Kym, I'll post the PDF book winner here too.

But enough about me, let's talk about you. Have you commented on yesterday's posts, entered yourself into the running for the Amazon giftcard? No? Well, why not? It's free, and you can win stuff. Don't you want stuff? The drawing is on Saturday so if you couldn't make it yesterday, you can revisit Monday's blog stops and leave a comment. Doesn't have to be brilliant, a "Hey," with your name will suffice.

Well, speaking of stuff.... on to today's blog.!Just one, but an important one.
