It's COVER REVEAL Time! TWIN SACRIFICE by JENNIFER LANE #amreading


I'm super excited for today's cover reveal because being the lucky ducky that I am, Jennifer Lane is my crit partner, so I've gotten a preview on this story. And folks - it's a GREAT one. My full review will be coming, but for now, here's a sneak peek:


Twin Sacrifice
by Jennifer Lane
Genre: Psychological Thriller
Release Date: February 28, 2018



My twin brother is determined to kill himself, but I won’t let him. 

I just discovered the sacrifice he made for me when we were young.

Now it’s time I return the favor. This time I’ll be the one with the secret.

Psychologist Matthew Durante’s twin brother, Justin, has struggled with mental illness since their parents died in a house fire. After Justin is accused of setting off a bomb that killed an innocent woman, he lands in a maximum-security psychiatric hospital.

In the face of Justin’s unrelenting suicide attempts, Matthew grows frantic to keep him alive. And as the pieces of their past fall into place, Matthew decides bold action is his only choice, no matter the cost.

Set against the backdrop of weapons manufacturing, terrorism, and a dark family secret, Matthew and Justin fight for survival, redemption, and most of all, for each other.




Get psyched for romance with psychologist/author (psycho author) Jennifer Lane! By day she’s a therapist, and by night she’s a writer. She can’t decide which is more fun.

Jen loves to create sporty heroines and hot heroes in her college sport romances. Volleyball wonder Lucia Ramirez finds her love match in Blocked despite the glaring political spotlight aimed on her family. In Aced, the second book in the Blocked series, it’s her brother Alejandro’s turn to get lucky in love. Spiked (Blocked #3) features Lucia’s younger brother, Mateo, and completes the series.

A swimmer and volleyball player in college, Jen writes swimming-based romances as well: Streamline, a military mystery, and the New Adult novella Swim Recruit.

Stories of redemption interest Jen the most, especially the healing power of love. She is also the author of The Conduct Series, a romantic-suspense trilogy that includes With Good BehaviorBad Behavior, and On Best Behavior. Her current project is a psychological thriller, Twin Sacrifice.

Ultimately, whether writing or reading, Jen loves stories that make her laugh and cry. In her spare time she enjoys exercising, attending book club, and visiting her sisters in Chicago and Hilton Head.

Bring on 2018! #IWSG

Happy new year, everyone! Time to repair all of our writing regrets from 2017, right? So this month's optional IWSG Day question is quite appropriate:

What steps have you taken to put a schedule in place for your writing and publishing?

I've come to accept that the writing everyday thing just won't work for me. Weekend warrior is more my style. In 2018, my goal is to write a chapter a weekend until the first draft of my current WIP is finished. Then I'll dig in on the 2nd and 3rd drafts and hope to start sending chapters to my crit partner in May (get ready, Jennifer Lane!).

I don't plan to publish that novel until early 2019, but it's possible I'll get out a short story collection in the fall.

Wait! Before you leave... a bunch of us are celebrating the release of Chrys Fey's FLAMING CRIMES by telling you one weird thing we'd save if disaster struck. You can see my answer in the post below.


Flaming Crimes Blogfest with @ChrysFey


To celebrate Chrys Fey's new book, Flaming Crimes, a whole bunch of us are answering one simple question:

What is something ridiculous you would save if there was a fire?

My answer:


These are just framed images that were pilfered from the internet and a toy that can easily be bought again. I keep them by my work space because they make me happy. What I treasure most of all is not that they represent the great loves of my life; it's that they were given to me by 3 marvelous people who truly get me - my children and my sister. I don't think I'm the easiest person to "get" (just ask my husband), so to have 3 humans who not only understand me but also fully embrace every single quirk is the greatest thing in the whole wide world.

BLURB: Beth and Donovan are now happily married, and what Beth wants more than anything is a baby. Her dream of starting a family is put on hold as fires burn dangerously close and Donovan becomes a victim of sabotage.

Donovan escapes what could've been a deadly wreck. Their past enemies have been eliminated, so who is cutting brake lines and leaving bloody messages? He vows to find out, for the sake of the woman he loves and the life they're trying to build.

Amidst a criminal mind game, a fire ignites next to their home. They battle the flames and fight to keep their house safe from the blaze pressing in on all sides, but neither of them expects to confront a psychotic adversary in the middle of the inferno.

Their lives may just go up in flames…
