And Now, He-ere’s Jenny….

Reading and Writing: My friend Jen is doing a blog tour for her new book, Redeeming Characters. Here’s her blurb about it.

It’s What You Say and How You Say It.

Thanks so much to my gracious hostess, Kym Lucas for hosting me during my Redeeming Characters blog tour. Here’s the blurb for the book.

Animals may bite, but people always suck. It’s the motto thirty-two year old Drue has lived by all his life. He longs for the snow to melt so he can disappear into the wild with nary a nitwit to be seen—to escape the confines of a narrow-minded and cloying society.  Yet, when he discovers an old friend has published the book he helped create, a new plan surfaces. Revenge.

Bestselling author Dakota Whitmore is in a slump. Sure, her husband is dead and she’s adopted his long-time mistress’s child, but she’s endured more difficult things.  Maybe what she needs is a little help, a beta reader who will tell her that her work hasn’t turned into a steaming cow pie. How about uber sexy Drue, the man who helped her pen her first—and only, bestseller? Nothing could possibly go wrong. Right?

This book took me three years to write—I started and finished two books in my Misadventures of the Laundry Hag mystery series between starting and ending this monster. And I’m proud of it like any mother would be with her child.

You see great writers aren’t born that way. Some of us have stories to tell, others have a way with words. Writing is a skill like any other and spending time honing that skill is vital. Yes I have other books to my credit, but this is the first one where I can say, I worked my butt off until I got it right. The story and the way it is told, the character’s inner voices and their interactions. It’s truly unique and I definitely recommend it!

And on that note, I’m going to ask Kym to select one winner from our random commenter to win a PDF copy of Redeeming Characters. Be sure to swing by and enter to win the grand prize in the Redeeming Characters blog tour. May you end the year with a smile on your face!

    Congrats on working your butt off to get this book just the way you wanted it. Now that your baby is out in the world I’m sure it will make a name for you.


  2. Heather Cox says:

    I can’t wait for my copy of this book to arrive in the mail!


  3. Kym,
    Thanks so much for hosting! I too spend a hefty portion of my time reading, writing and ranting!


  4. Kerri Nelson says:

    I just couldn’t believe it took you 3 years to write this one! You have the virtue of patience. I have no virtues. Wait, let me think….


    Good stuff, Jenn!


    P.S. Just reread my last blog comment on the other blog and made about 3 typos. Just chalk it up to 2 hours sleep a night. We’re going through teething here. The baby…not me. 😉


  5. Ms. Heather says:

    Some of us are born silent storytellers and are forced to pick up a pen and release our inner voices.

    This book sounds like a fun read. It’s definitely going on my to read list, which is, sadly, getting longer faster than I can read my way through it. LOL

    Fortunately, I read them in order of interest, not in order of when I added them. 😛

    Thanks for all the nice comments. And thanks Jen for visiting my blog on your “world tour.”


  7. Gail, I sure hope it will!


  8. Heather, you don’t know how thrilled I am to hear that!


  9. Kerri, I can’t believe it took so long either! Now you know why I was so dead set on print!


  10. Ms. Heather,
    I’m thrilled to be on the pile, sometimes it seems that there are more people writing than reading, and it’s easy to forget why I wanted to write in the first place!


  11. Wow. Three years. That’s what I call determination. It was well worth the time you put into it.

    I am so proud of Jenn and what she has accomplished with this book. Drue is a wonderfully unique leading man, with amazing depth and complexity. You MUST buy this book!
