Where has J.R. Been... & New Story Available!

Happy Holidays, everyone. Sorry I haven't really been around much lately. The holidays don't always sit well with me. It's been a few years where I have been able to enjoy them. I tend to go into a hole in the ground and hibernate like a bear for a month or so and not really interact with people. I don't really know if it's a whole lonely factor or if it's something more. Anyway, I'm still alive. Been dealing with some back pain and sitting for long periods of time is difficult as well. I hope all of you enjoyed your Christmas, Chanukah, Kwanzaa, and every holiday celebrated at this time of year! :) 

First, an update on current WIPs. I have not really had much chance to write lately so I'm sadly lacking in much to relay to you because of doctor's visits, back pain, and a few other things that have come up. I do have a New Year's resolution that NO MATTER WHAT I am going to make a plan and stick to it. I am going to dedicate four nights a week to writing. I have to get back into the groove of things. For you and for myself.

I also have good news for those who do read my blog and are interested in reading new stories by me! :) Cool Beans publishing has not only re-released my book Swift's Temptation but they have also released a new, never been read short Christmas story called Blue Christmas in their Winter Blend Anthology. It's available at Amazon right now, but also at B&N and should be available at ARe and Smashwords soon if they are not already. It is actually longer than a short story, it's about 25k words so it's almost the length of a novella!

My projects for 2015 include Protecting Kai (True Mates 3) and the sequel to Touch Me Gently. I could really use the encouragement to keep me motivated and on the road to getting those out there for you! Please don't forget about me! I know I don't put out stories as quickly as others, but I promise I am still here. :)
