Time of Zombies

Yay, Summer!! Yay, move is done for now!!

It has been a busy summer for me so far. I’m no longer a Cali girl. 😦 I’m now in an apartment in Reno, Nevada waiting for a house to be built. (adventure)

So, I thought I would do a little something with my zombies series. Love in the Time of Zombies is FREE right now at Smashwords!! They are having their Summer/Winter sale, because summer here is winter elsewhere, but a sale is a sale.

Get Love in the Time of Zombies here!

 

 

 

Then you can go to Bookfunnel and get Time of Zombies 1.5 for FREE! Rogue Vantage is a standalone book that can be read between Love in the Time of Zombies and The Zombie Hunter’s Wife to enhance the Time of Zombies series. It is the story of four little boys left on their own in the zombie apocalypse and how they become brothers of the ZA.

You can get Rogue Vantage here!

Hope you enjoy a good start to the Time of Zombies by Jill James!!


What are you doing this summer? Big vacation plans? A staycation? Or something else fun?

Cover Reveal

So, I mentioned last week that I had a new cover coming for an upcoming project, but I wanted my newsletter subscribers to see it first. That newsletter was sent out last Thursday, so now everyone can check it out. This is for a work in progress (60% done) that I hope to submit to Kindle Scout.

Isn’t that gorgeous? Elaina Lee of For The Muse Design has done it again. I usually get a cover ordered for when I’m about halfway through a first draft to get me excited again in a story and to keep going. Definitely excited about this one!!

The Zombie Hunter’s Wife – now in audiobook

The Zombie Hunter’s Wife

Book 2 – Time of Zombies series

Now available in audio book!!

 

 

 


Michelle Greggs wanted to die the day her husband returned from work as the undead and she was forced to kill him. Now, all she wants is peace and safety. But both of those are in short supply in the zombie apocalypse.

Teddy Ridgewood lives for today. The smile on his face hides the pain within. The old world is gone and they only have today. There are no guarantees of a bright tomorrow when the dead walk the earth.

When a toxic preacher lusts for Michelle she will have to use all of her inner strength and seize onto Teddy’s live-for-today attitude to defeat the mad man and claim Teddy as her mate. She will have to break out of the cement walls she’s hidden behind to become the zombie hunter’s wife.

Looking Forward to 2017

wish potIt is usually this time of year that I open the wishing pot my best friend gave me and check out my goals and wishes for the past year. Sometimes I’m happy to see I met my goals and sometimes I’m sad to see I didn’t quite get there. This year I think I will be happy the year is over and a new one beginning.

So, what do I want for 2017–

  • To lose the final 20 pounds I need to be a healthy weight for my short frame.
  • To exercise at least 30 minutes every day.
  • To eat better and find ways to enjoy food that is good for you.
  • To double my book production by writing a little something at least 5 days a week.
  • To not stress over sales of books or ads and promotion I should be doing, to just find events or happenings to sell my books in fun and inventive ways.
  • To reach out to newbies in this strange, scary publishing world and give them a pat on the back for being brave enough to try it and enough advice to feel they are taking the next step into this world we call publishing.
  • To tell my family how much I love them and to be there when needed.
  • To smell the roses–literally and figuratively.

What do you want your 2017 to be?

New Release for Christmas

My novella, Waking Up For Christmas has gone live as an individual book. It is currently in the boxed set, Christmas at the Inn on Main Street by the Authors of Main Street.

I was inspired by The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks with the idea of looking back on a life together – the highs and the lows of love, romance, tears, and arguments. Darcy and Chase are in the midst of a divorce when she is in a terrible car accident. Now in a coma, all Chase wants for the holidays is for Darcy to wake up and remember all they had together and all they could have, if she would just wake up!

The novella and the boxed set are Amazon-exclusive and in Kindle Unlimited! The boxed set is also available as a paperback book at Amazon.

Indie Author Day 2016

indie-author-day

Saturday, October 8th is Indie Author Day.

I’m a proud Indie author. I love being the CEO of my own publishing company of 1!! Being an indie author requires being not only a writer but a marketer also. Along with art approval and editorial management and a host of other things.

But it is fun…sometimes. Some days, not so much.

What a Blast! RWA National 2016

Back from the conference and finally back on track with eating right, exercising every day, and writing on schedule.

It’s all about the shoes! It took several shoe stores and one that was locked but had employees inside. (What’s up with that?!) But it was worth it. I haven’t worn heels for years because it was just too painful and awkward at my weight, but with the weight loss this year I decided to brave them for one evening. It was worth it!

Plus one more. Don’t we clean up well?!! The husband and I don’t get all dressed up often so we make sure to take pictures of the event. LOL

RWA 2016It was an amazing evening. Great desserts. Great award show. Great company at our table. Thanks Rose City chapter for sharing your table, loved meeting you all!

RWA Nationals 2016

I’m in San Diego this week for the National Conference. I’m going to try to tweet and Facebook with the hashtag #RWA16 so I’ll let you know what’s happening with that. I’ll post pictures when I’m back.

Keep writing, keep reading, Jill James

2 weeks to go!

ATimetoKillZombies 500x750Just two weeks until the release of Book 3 in the Time of Zombies series, A Time to Kill Zombies with my two favorite characters, Commander Jack Canida and Lila Sterling.

It is hard enough to find a kidnapped child today with all the resources at hand, how much harder would it be in the zombie apocalypse? That is the basis for the story. The search for a lost child and a mother’s greatest fear; what if they find the child and she doesn’t want to be found anymore?

A Time to Kill Zombies is available for preorder and releases on June 27th. Links for preorder are on the Books-Time of Zombies-A Time to Kill Zombies page

I hope you will enjoy reading the Time of Zombies series as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Happy Book-iversary!

Today is the 5th anniversary of my first published book. Five years ago today The Wild Rose Press released Tempting Adam! TA is a contemporary romance set in a Hollywood movie studio. It’s a little Disclosure and a little Pretty Woman. Happy Anniversary to me!!

Adam St. Eden and Yvette Giardino are two of my favorite characters. Sometimes people do the wrong things for the right reasons. Sometimes falling in love is not in the contract, but it happens anyway! True love always prevails.
