Here Comes Jenny...
Good day to you all! And what news I bring! Some of you may recognise my lovely Brit Babe Buddy somewhere through this next post... I would like to introduce to you the lovely, Jenny Kane with her new book, Another Cup of Coffee.
Take it away lady...
You may have come across my work before.
Nine years ago this week, I began to write erotica under the guise of Kay Jaybee. I can’t believe I’ve been around so long- the time really has flown by.
As Kay I’ve written 17 solo books, and had over 80 short stories published in others. I love writing as Kay- she is very much braver than I am, and it is such fun taking on her persona to weave tales of erotic romance, BDSM, and voyeurism.
However, I always planned to widen my literary horizons beyond erotica- but until now I’ve had neither the time nor the nerve to try! It’s a daunting thing trying to get a new book published, even if you already have a proven track record in your field. To jump the fence and branch into a different field altogether is a bit like starting all over again.
The plot line for Another Cup of Coffee- which is more a story of modern friendship with romance, than a romantic story- has been simmering in the back of my head for years. In fact it first hit the paper in a very rough form years before I’d ever dreamt up my first erotic tale- but I just didn’t have the skills or the confidence to do anything with it. But now, after serving my writers apprenticeship in the highly competitive erotica market, I decided I would throw caution to the wind and send my manuscript to a publisher.
With every expectation of being rejected, I waited- and made myself forget all about it, throwing myself into my next erotic novel- only to have my dream come true 3 months later- a yes from Accent Press!!!!
When I heard I was to have my first contemporary romance, Another Cup of Coffee, published, it felt every bit as exciting as it did when I had The Collector, my very first solo erotic book, taken back in 2008!
Here’s the blurb for you!
Thirteen years ago Amy Crane ran away from everyone and everything she knew, ending up in an unfamiliar city with no obvious past and no idea of her future. Now, though, that past has just arrived on her doorstep, in the shape of an old music cassette that Amy hasn’t seen since she was at university.
Digging out her long-neglected Walkman, Amy listens to the lyrics that soundtracked her student days. As long-buried memories are wrenched from the places in her mind where she’s kept them safely locked away for over a decade, Amy is suddenly tired of hiding.
It’s time to confront everything about her life. Time to find all the friends she left behind in England, when her heart got broken and the life she was building for herself was shattered. Time to make sense of all the feelings she’s been bottling up for all this time. And most of all, it’s time to discover why Jack has sent her tape back to her now, after all these years…
With her mantra, New life, New job, New home, playing on a continuous loop in her head, Amy gears herself up with yet another bucket-sized cup of coffee, as she goes forth to lay the ghost of first love to rest...
And so, now you can buy my new novel for your Kindle, and it will be available in paperback from 19th September. Think comfort food, think book chocolate, think something to curl up with on a sun lounger, or in front of the fire, while you get lost in the life of Miss Amy Crane, her friends, and the ghost from her past...
Thanks ever so much for letting me coming and talk about the new me!!
Lots of love,
