Missy Jane: Hello Spring!
Thursday, March 27th, 2014

Every year for spring break I take my four daughters on a road trip up into the Texas Hill Country and subject them to the (they think) torturous ritual of having their pictures taken among the wildflowers. This is a tradition I love because Texas wildflowers are my favorite and I love any opportunity to take photos of my girls. Unfortunately, this year has been overrun with winter. I wasn’t sure we’d ever see spring, but finally proof it has arrived is here: Bluebonnets.

We didn’t take our annual road trip because of the weather. Plus I have a new job this year and no paid vacation time. So, I took two days and we did things around town instead. But I was thrilled to finally see Bluebonnets blooming in a few spots around Houston. I have to admit I haven’t been writing much lately and I think the dreary weather is partly to blame. Being a pantser, I really can’t force myself to write or nothing good comes of it. Spring is one of the most inspiring times and I already feel the characters shoving each other to be heard first.

My most recent release is an erotic romance. It’s the sequel to Erotic Images released by Ellora’s Cave a couple of years ago. This one is called Erotic Influence and is just as hot. To be honest, I even had to cut a couple of sex scenes. For the first time ever, my editor let me know my characters were having a little too much fun. This is a stand-alone book with a couple of related side characters that were the main characters in the first book. Wes, the photographer in the first book, has a new subject to shoot. Rick is a healthy, hunky, twenty-something that does the erotic photo shoots because he enjoys them and likes the extra money. Then he meets Annie and realizes she could use the money too. Talking her into taking her clothes off for the camera is a whole other issue.

Sequel to Erotic Images.

Annie may be a shy twentysomething who spends her days keeping track of her wayward teenage sister, but Rick noticed her living across the street as soon as he moved in. Now he can’t stop fantasizing his sweet, innocent neighbor and wanting her has become an obsession. He just has to convince her to give him a chance instead of always running away.

Annie has plans for her life but has to help her sister get into college first. Then Rick comes along and proves to be a help as much as a distraction. All she has to do is pose for his friend, an erotic photographer. Not only will she earn the money needs for her sister’s college fund, Rick’s erotic influence just might liberate her enough to become his woman too. It’s a chance she’s more than willing to take…so long as no one finds out what she’s doing.

Other than taking road trips to see the wildflowers, I love playing online. You can find me here:

mjNew meMs. Missy Jane is the alter ego of a married mother of four who was born and raised in Texas. A few years ago she finished reading a book by Mercedes Lackey and thought “Now, what if…” and a monster was created. Missy now spends most of her time lost in worlds of her own making, alternately loving and hating such creatures as vampires, shape-shifters and gargoyles (to name a few). When not writing, she spends her time reading, taking photos of her beautiful daughters and training her husband to believe she’s always right.

    Hi
    I enjoyed reading synopsis regarding your book and will definitely plan to read it in its entirety. I love discovering a new to me author.

    Also, down the road your daughters will appreciate the pictures that you “make” them take.

    Thank you for your time.

    It’s hard starting a new job and having no vacation time, but you’ll build it up quick enough. Short day trips are the way to go in the mean time!
    Erotic Influence sounds like a great read – I’ll have to snag a copy and check it out!
