Your Heart's Desire?

Not to wax cheesy or anything, but this time of year: Thanksgiving ( here in the US ) and Christmas ( for those who celebrate ) tends to evoke pondering. At least for me.

I couldn't get into the Christmas spirit this year. Maybe it's 26 years of decorating gone blah....not sure. But the thought of dragging out 17 crates of decorations, taking them out and finding a place for them in my already stuffed house left me thinking: A) too tired. B) I don't need ONE MORE 'THING'

Alas, I was so delighted and relieved to come home from my 26th anniversary trip to find that my DD#1, DM and DS#2 had decorated! As I walked into the house and smelled the pine candles, listened to the carols booming from speakers and toured my 'decked out house' I was too stunned to cry. Thankfully, I smiled, hugged and thanked the do-gooders.

I've reflected that: I've already HAD my Christmas. That one gift was all I need. And it didn't even come from a store.

No surprise that the gifts we give from our heart--often small acts of service and kindness--are those that last the longest, penetrate the deepest and mean the most in the end.

What's your heart's desire this Christmas?

From my heart to yours, I hope that, whatever it is you recieve it.

Absolution~~~FINALLY, the price is right!

You can imagine my frustration: 1300.00 for Absolution? Nice, but NO. No one would pay that much for the book unless Matthias came along with it!

Finally, the price has been corrected!! SOOOOOO happy!

Sending my love to Amazon, and the very nice fellow who heard me out yesterday when I called for the tenth time, begging someone to do something!

Taking a Breath

Had a most successful release day party on Facebook yesterday for ABSOLUTION. Soooo much fun, gave away TONS of stuff.

I've got to be the luckiest girl out there. I love to write and I can give lots of books and swag to whomever. It's ab-so-lute-ly the best place to be in!

To top it off, I had the release date on the real Abria's birthday ( my daughter who has autism, who is a central part of the Heavenly series ) and that, as well as the fact that I dedicated the final book to her, has wrapped up the Heavenly books very sweetly.

I'm so happy they are complete. I hope those of you who read them enjoy them.

More contests to come next week~

xx Jennifer

Have you seen the price of Absolution online??? If you want a laugh, check this out. Now, I'd LOVE it if I got that much per sale, but...not likely.

I've alerted the publisher, poked up the chain and the price remains insane. So, anyone wanting to order the book ( for the regular list price of 13.95 ) needs to contact Grove Creek Publishing at 1404 West State Rd., Suite 202, Pleasant Grove UT 84062. You can send a check or MO for 13.95+2.38 shipping and you'll get a signed copy.

We'll wait for Amazon and Borders and B&N to get their act together and update.

What's Coming Up: Grab your popcorn and have a seat :)

The final chapter in the HEAVENLY series, ABSOLUTION will be out in both hardcover and paperback in October. Taking bets as to how you think it will end. Hey, even I don't know how it's going to end. JK! Most of you don't know me well enough to understand my odd sense of humor.

Zoe’s secret is out. And the powers of Hell are ravenous to claim her soul. Her brother, Luke, knows her secret: that she sees both good and evil spirits. Her boyfriend knows. At least Matthias is her guardian angel again. But now Hell’s most ruthless leader will stop at nothing to have her soul.

Albert, Matthias’ father, is relentless in his hunger for Zoe. He wants to destroy Matthias and will use Zoe to do so.

The battle between Heaven and Hell tests everything Zoe has. As she witnesses everyone important in her life suffering, she’s brought to the ultimate choice: will she sacrifice her soul to save the ones she loves?

Check out all things HEAVENLY.

Coming next year, OVERPROTECTED. blurb:

Ashlyn: A lonely society princess living in New York City.

Daddy hired you to be my bodyguard.

Colin: Childhood enemy, now her protector.

Daddy thought I’d be safe. He thought I’d never fall in love. He thought he could keep me forever.

Charles: obsessed with keeping her safe, keeping her his, he hires the one person he knows she could never fall in love with: Colin.

Daddy was wrong.

Check out the AWESOME trailer:

I'm really excited about both books and can't wait to share them with interested readers.

I'm participating in blogmania tomorrow. Up for grabs is this Heavenly set: Poster, with all three covers, a copy of Heavenly, Penitence and a Heavenly notebook. Plus, a gorgeous REAL ANGELS DON'T FALL teeshirt!
Come by and enter to win! Winner will be drawn at the end of blogmania and announced Saturday.
Stop back by to check. Followers get entered twice!


It's finally here. And I'm glad. I can't wait for you to see where Zoe goes from here. If you haven't read Heavenly, order it. I promise you won't be disappointed with Zoe's story. What girl doesn't want to be loved by two incredible guys? (( OOPS, getting ahead of things here - no spoilers ))


Book Two.

Seeing good and evil spirits is a gift Zoe guards with her life.

Despite her guardian angel's disappearance, Zoe forces herself to accept that she still has a purpose---but how does she carry the weight of her brother's drug abuse, the hardship of living with an autistic sister, and a best friend who's obsessed with a guy who only wants Zoe?

She's never felt more alone.

When a mysterious spirit appears, Zoe thinks she has a new guardian angel. Instead, her brother's addiction worsens, her parents are on the brink of separation, and her best friend tries to kill her. The spirit she thinks is her new guardian isn't there to protect her: he's out to destry her family and seize Zoe's soul...for Hell.

Will Matthias' return mean that he's Zoe's guardian angel again? Or is their love the reason the jaws of Hell now gape open?

PENITENCE is available at AMAZON.com


Everyone. I know I said I had 10 copies of Heavenly to give away, but 12 people entered! Sooooo, EVERY ENTRY yesterday wins.
