The cover for The Janitor

I’m a naturally optimistic type of person, you know? Yeah, I think good things will happen, only they don’t usually--Dane, The Janitor

Dane bleeding all over the cover, perfect. I think this cover by April Martinez is award-winning material.

So, yeah. I really can't believe it. The actual cover is really huge, it was downsized by PB, but if you click on the cover, it will become larger. Some of Dane's magic rubbed off and this happened.

The novel is out May 5th!

And I have lots of news and excerpts for my upcoming work on my live journal set up for my original work, Jan Revealed. It's a little easier for me since I can put excerpts under a cut but I update it weekly with book reviews, excerpts, raffles.


  1. I bought your book today and read it as I knit and folded laundry. Then suddenly the book was done and I wanted more . . . and the laundry and knitting was forgotten (rats, back to folding laundry after dinner then).

    I am not a fan of boxing and I generally stick to authors I know. Occasionally I like to try a new author however, and something about your book looked interesting. Was it the interesting cover? Intriguing blurb? I don't know, but I am glad I bought it.

    Dane's boxing is in important part of the story, but it isn't the focus. The clear focus is Dane and Noel's relationship. I would tell readers not to dismiss this book just if, like me, boxing "isn't your thing".

    The characters were quirky and mismatched. They were not perfect people. They played well of each other. Your writing style seemed only to enhance the story.

    I hope to see more from you in the future!

  2. Hi, Danielle!

    I actually don't watch boxing at all, actually, and had some assistance when I did the research. You nailed it--the story is really about Dane and Noel, and not about boxing.

    I'm so pleased you enjoyed it.

    I've been writing for a long time and I already have two more books complete and another half done. I do hope you will see more of my work soon!

  3. This looks SO good! I can't wait until payday because it will be mine!!!!

  4. *sigh* I couldn't wait. I had to have it. I'm planning on reading after my lunch! Woohoo!

  5. I wanted to email you, but I couldn't find an address. I'm reading the Janitor and can I just say that I love Dane and he is breaking my heart. I just want to hug him! I'm LOVING this so far.

  6. Wonderful. Heartbreakingly Beautiful. Just a little of what I feel after reading The Janitor. You touched me with your story. Thank you.

  7. Okay...I'll stop spaming your blog! lol But I bloged about you and went to a couple yahoo groups I'm on and told them about the book.

  8. Hi, Jambrea! OMG, how funny since I popped over here today and I saw your voyage into buying my book. I'm so glad you enjoyed it.

    I so appreciate you did that. As you can probably tell, I'm still get powered up and finding my way around. I was so touched you loved my book so much. I'm going by your blog now.
