Goodreads Giveaway for Who Needs A Hero?

Image
You have no idea how gratifying this is. My goodreads giveaway for Who Needs A Hero? went live yesterday evening. So far eighty people have signed up for a chance to win a hard copy of his book!

I just ordered my proof copy to review and I plan on taking it to New York with me to check for errors and any last minute typos. If it looks good, I'll pass it along to the Reading Reviewer, Mary Grimlich.

It's going to be a very busy week for me, my first ever RWA national conference. I'm looking forward to seeing the Sanibel Divas who are attending and meeting up with members of the sci-fi romance brigade. I've already packed my Star Trek: The Next Generation communicator pin to wear to The Gathering and after some clever packing, have plenty of room in my suitcase for books!

And I promise, as soon as I get back I'll be back to work, preparing for the Who Needs A Hero? release and maybe even writing on Laundry Hag 3: All Washed Up.

One thing at a time though. ;-)







Goodrea…

The long awaited story of how the Laundry Hag nabbed her SEAL. I'm self-publishing this one as well and if everything goes according to plan, I will have it available for Kindle and Nook on July 12. Look for a snippet this weekend on Six Sentence Sunday!

Expectations

Image
Scott and I have been re watching episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation, one of my all time favorite series. I grew up on this show and sitting through a few episodes is a very comforting way to unwind for me.

In one of the latest episodes, Guinan, played by Whoopi Goldberg. dispatched a snippet of her brilliant bartender wisdom to Geordie who was sulking about a relationship that wasn't goingthe way he wanted. "She did the worst thing a one human being can do to another; she didn't live up to your expectations."

And Geordie being Georgie, sat back and you could almost see the wheels start turning. If there was a little thought bubble over his head it would have read oops, my bad. It's not her, it's me. Oh to be those well adjusted self-actualized people of the UFP.

I've been thinking about this quiet a bit lately, especially how it relates to books, writers and readers. As a reader, I know what it's like to pick up a book, look forward to a terrifi…

First Review for Stellar Timing!

Image
And believe me, it's a huge sigh of relief! Mary Gramlich, the Reading Reviewer, is the first back with the verdict on Stellar.
"Creating paranormal universes and characters that are detailed but not complicated is a very tight rope to write. Jennifer Hart shows she has the mettle to write it, get you to read it and absolutely love it. This story takes you to a place that you believe exists and worth fighting for to keep with characters that win you over with a sense of humor and kick in the pants spunk. Bravo!"

This is a big turnaround from the last time I self-published one of my books. No matter how much I believe in a story, I can never take my own opinion to the bank. And I know Mary isn't a big science fiction reader, which makes the victory that much sweeter! Because that's my aim, to entertain both die hard sci-fi fans and romance readers alike. And putting out a quality product always makes me happy.
