Thankful for 911 Dispatchers and here is why…

I get to brag a little today.

One of Grizzly (aka my husband)’s 911 dispatchers received a national award today for her excellent work and reaction time during a call that took place last year.

A man had murdered his wife, told his niece what he had done, and then also told the niece he was headed to his son’s school to pick the boy up. That dispatcher immediately notified the school of a potential shooter situation and told them to go on lock down. And they did – just in time. That man showed up to pick up his son and was denied entrance. The murderer then went back to his van and pulled his gun on the responding officers. He was shot and killed.

What Grizzly didn’t know until after he was on scene, and the murderer was deceased, was that our Oldest Minion was in that school for a band festival/competition. Thanks to that dispatcher, my baby is alive today. I can’t thank her enough. She deserves that award and so much more – but if you tell her she’s a hero she will tell you that she was just doing her job.

Remember your 911 Dispatchers folks. They’re first responders who don’t get recognition nearly enough. #GoldLine

UPDATE ON IMMORTAL ENEMIES!

UPDATE ON IMMORTAL ENEMIES!
If you have purchased Immortal Enemies and see the page pictured below – YOU HAVE THE WRONG BOOK FILE. I have uploaded the correct book file THREE TIMES NOW. I have also contacted Amazon to try and get this fixed. I’m sorry guys. I’m doing everything I can possibly do to fix the situation. I know it’s frustrating but please be patient. If I have to sacrifice a lamb and donate a gallon of my own blood I will get it fixed! Also, please note that there are refresh instructions for all Distributors on my website. The link is posted below. You might want to try that too in case it works for you. In the case of Super Assistant Kim it has not worked and frankly I think Amazon hates her as much as they hate me.
I REALLY AM SORRY.

Blurb:
More than a thousand years ago, their love burned brighter than the sun.
 
Now, the only thing that burns is his hatred for the woman he once sacrificed his life to save… and his skin in the daylight.
 
Arne Eriksson grew up in a time when Vikings ruled the seas. He’d longed for the day he would earn his entrance to Valhalla. A treasured afterlife he’d never see since being turned into a vampire.
 
The person responsible for making him a monster—the woman he’d once wanted to marry.
 
Liv Nornsdottir was the outcast of the Viking era. The daughter of the mystical Norns, she hid from the world around her.
 
All except for one… a boy who grew into the man she came to love.
 
When he sacrificed himself to protect her, she did the only thing she could think of to save him– she had him turned into a vampire. Something so taboo she knew it would cost her Arne’s affections for all eternity. In the moment, she didn’t think, she reacted.
 
She’s been running from him ever since.
 
Lovers turned to immortal enemies.
 
The problem is… he’s found her.
 
And Arne is none to happy to learn the woman who damned him to an eternity without glory is also his mate.

BIGGEST ONLINE CHARITY AUCTION YOU’VE EVER SEEN!

I’ve been hard at work for months on the upcoming Books For Band 2019 Online Auction that starts on July 12th. This means that I haven’t gotten much writing done but I’m okay with that. You have to understand that this is the auction I’m going to be the one I’m most proud of when it’s all said and done. Not because it’s the BIGGEST one I’ve ever done (which it is) – but because it’s the most INCLUSIVE & DIVERSE romance auction I’ve ever done!
I busted my ass to make sure there’s something for EVERYONE this time and I hope you guys look through those books and get as excited as I am. Teen & YA, Adult, LGBT, Interracial, Mystery, Women’s Fiction, Contemporary, Paranormal, Sci-Fi, Clean, Naughty (eyebrow wiggles), BDSM and so much more! There’s over 550+ auction listings of signed books, a few unsigned books, custom book themed t-shirts and tote bags.
100% of the proceeds from this auction will go to the Meade County, KY Public School Band Program. The Band was in desperate need of some new instruments for their middle school and high school students, however the school nor state could afford to help. So the Meade County Band Boosters financed $56,000 worth of instruments for the band. They have to make a $13,000+ payment once a year for those instruments. Plus, keep in mind that Band Boosters consists of a handful of VOLUNTEER Band Parents – that’s it. So this is me, as a band parent, trying to help the band program.
I am so very grateful to all the authors, readers and bloggers who donated this year. You guys are hands down THE BEST. Make sure you create your account on the 32auctions website BEFORE the auction starts! Also, stay tuned to the FB Event page because I have a dozen or so swag packs I’ll be giving away between now and the time the auction starts. I also post auction updates there.
If anyone has any questions at all please feel free to comment below, PM me or email me at: books4bandauction@yahoo.com

P.S. Now that the auction work is pretty much done for the time being I’ll be getting back to writing! YAY! Hopefully I’ll have some updates on that for you soon. 😉

Life With My Retired Dad Episode #1

Today Daddy and I were chillin’ on the front porch. It’s our spot. Anyways, we’re sittin’ there and I see the Terminix truck pull up. I ask Dad, “We due for the Terminix guy?”
Dad says no. We watch then as the guy backs his truck up our neighbor’s driveway on the right and we don’t think anymore about it.

A couple of minutes go by and I look up and see halfway down our long ass front yard that there’s a fat white and gray cat walkin’ through. Y’all got to understand my Dad is highly allergic to cats so he basically HATES THEM. So me bein’ me, I egg the old man on. “Dad, there’s a cat in your yard.”

No lie, what he does next is what he does every time there’s a cat in our yard.

He starts yellin’, “Hey motherfucker, get out of my yard!”

This always cracks me up because let’s be real. He’s talkin’ to that cat like A) it understands, and B) it gives a shit.

WE ALL KNOW CATS DON’T GIVE A SHIT.

Anyways, he keeps yellin’ and cussin’ at the cat, who by the way wised up and realized he needed to get goin’ because my dad was obviously not a fan of Puss In Boots.

The cat gets almost all the way to the far right side of our front yard, a dozen feet or so from the poplar tree line we have that separates our yard from our neighbor’s yard, and I happen to look past the cat to see the Terminix guy standin’ in our neighbor’s driveway, with his head cocked to the side, confused as hell as to why my dad is yellin’ at him to get out of our yard.

Seriously guys, I laughed so hard I almost fell out of my chair. Somehow I managed to tell Dad the Terminix guy thought he was yellin’ at him and not the cat… and then of course my dad starts yellin’ at the bug guy.

“Not you man, the cat! I’m yellin’ at the cat!”

Terminix guy gives my Dad a thumbs up and I’m still dyin’ laughin’ in my chair. I told my dad, “I don’t know what’s funnier. The fact that he’s gonna go in our neighbor’s house and tell them that you called him a motherfucker or the fact that you almost got your ass whooped by the bug guy”.

By the way, the cat disappeared while I was laughing. He probably thought we humans were bat-shit crazy.

I hope you all enjoy this insight as to what my life is like on a daily basis.

I’m pretty sure I’m just gonna start sharin’ all my Dad stories so everyone can laugh with me. 😉


What June Now Means To Me

It’s June. And now, as a mother, June has a new meaning for me. PRIDE month. I keep my Minions’ lives very private. I’m a Mama Bear you do not want to mess with. I protect my babies with a zealous, paranoid fierceness some people think is a little nuts. So I debated about if I should say anything at all. Put my daughter’s private life out there for the world to see.

Then I realized something. Nothing is more important than my daughter knowing that I’m proud of her. She always knew both her father and I would love, accept and celebrate her no matter who she was as a person. That doesn’t mean it’s been easy in other aspects of her life. Especially lately.

So this is me, telling the world, my oldest daughter is gay and I am so proud of her. She’s a strong, amazing human being that has a huge heart that’s one of the purest I’ve ever seen. I’m lucky to be her mother. I’ll love her to the day I die and I’ll protect her from anyone and everyone who might want to hurt her because of who she is and how she loves. This is now what June, and PRIDE month, mean to me.

Be true to yourself my friends. Be brave.
LOVE IS LOVE.
❤ Always, Jessie Lane
