So last week, I was talking to some of my author friends about a party I’m hosting on June 1st – four of them hadn’t heard about my news. Two of them were mad at me about it. Clearly I must do better. So this week, I’ll be posting and yelling and talking about the movie and the party over and over.
Party – over 30 authors will be at the party, and we’d love to have you stop by. It’s come and go and you can pop in as much as you want throughout the day. There will be fun and giveaways! You can join us at the party by going here.
I’ll be listing all the authors and their times in my newsletter, which goes out tomorrow – so sign up here. I do a small giveaway every month exclusively for newsletter subscribers, and I’d love you to win!
Are you on Twitter? We’re also going to live tweet the movie on June 2nd! You can join in with #NakedPursuit @JillMonroe
Contest – I’ll have a fun contest exclusive to my newsletter subscribers AFTER the movie comes out.
You can pop over to Lifetime to movie times and channels in your area here. Check out the clip below!

Today is a guest blog from my bestie Gena Showalter!!
When my best friend Jill Monroe—who is known for her steaming hot HQ Blaze romances—decided to go the self-publishing route, I was over the moon excited. She had an idea so creative, so danged delicious, I wished like crazy I’d thought of it first. (Cue Gena’s childish pout.) Check it: A woman learns she is the heroine of a romance novel, and she’s totally aware of the author…an author who continues to change her mind about the heroine’s occupation, the hero’s eye color and any number of other things. An author who—strangely enough—loves torturing her characters with embarrassing situations. (cough sounds just like Jill cough)
Fast-forward a few months. Jill and I—me? Whatever! We’re in New Orleans with the amazing Kresley Cole, plotting our upcoming books – and oh my gosh, I hope you are ready for some of our best plots ever! Anyway, we’re tossing out title ideas for Jill’s Revelations of a Romance Novel Heroine book. I’m flipping through my mental files for naughty phrases and intimate body parts – what? Don’t act like you’re surprised LOL – and T&A hits me like a golden sledge hammer. I shout, “T and A!” and our hotel room goes quiet. A second later, we’re high fiving, fist pumping the air, and grinning like lunatics. We knew we’d nailed it—just like the hero nails the heroine in the book. Total satisfaction.
Yeah, I’m patting myself on the back and taking ALL credit for the success of T&A: Revelations of a Romance Novel Heroine. Because dang, I like that title. And okay, okay, the book itself is Jill best work EVER. It’s sizzling and sexy, breathtakingly exciting, brilliantly witty and so freaking fun. Order your copy today!
It’s Week 2 of my 31 Days of Fun in honor of my latest release: T&A: Revelations Of A Romance Novel Heroine! You can read more about that here.
I’m also having a fun contest that goes along with this calendar – you can find out ALL about entering by going to my contests page here.
Let’s get started!!!
Day 8 – Donate an old bra. I’m probably not the only one of us who has a really cute bra in the drawer that for whatever reason I don’t wear – it’s a little too tight and I’m hanging onto it because I’m sure it will fit if I lost 5 pounds. Or maybe it just fits funny, but it’s so cute. Anyway, there’a a woman out there who could really use that bra that’s just taking space up in the drawer. You know what to do!
Day 9 – Remind a Friend to check her Ts. We know how important it is for ourselves, so help a friend out, and ask her if she’s checking everything out on a monthly basis. Who knows – you may give her that little push she needs. Here’s a great website for learning how to check your T!
Day 10 – Leave a book in a public place. Here’s another way to help out a friend – leave a book (a good one!) in the waiting room.
Day 11– Compliment a stranger. Sadly, most of us are bundled under stocking caps – here’s your chance to tell someone you think theirs is cool!
Day 12 – Treat a friend to something sweet. Last week you treated yourself – today treat a friend. January can be a trying month for many, and your extra bit of thoughtfulness may be just what she or he needs.
Day 13 – Do 5 squats to make your A happy. So far, we haven’t done much for our A. Now let’s change that! 5 squats. It’s not a lot, but maybe it will become a habit and you and your A deserve to be treated like a queen!
Day 14 – Open the door for a stranger. We’ve probably all experienced the relief of someone opening the door for us when we’re carrying something bulky or heavy. That kind of courtesy makes my day, and now’s your chance to make someone else’s!
Okay, sure I should have posted this yesterday since it was kind of, sort of the first day of the month. But I was actually quite busy yesterday – reading! (I was also supposed to take down the tree before the new year, but I was busy reading then, too).
So TODAY I will do my Calendar Week 1 post. Woot woot! In honor of my January 7th release of T&A: Revelations Of A Romance Novel Heroine, this calendar will focus on T&A!!!
Jan 1 – Check Your T. Okay, we all know this is important including for men. If it’s not part of your monthly routine, make 2017 the year it does. Click here to learn how to check your T.
Jan 2 – Share my calendar on Facebook and/or Twitter for a chance to win a prize. Go here for details, and you can always stay up to date on contests by signing up for my newsletter and checking out my contest page.
Jan 3 – Think one great thing about your A. This can be tougher than it sounds. Many of us have a hate/hate relationship with our A. It’s too small, it’s too big… But today, you just get think great things about your backside!
Jan 4 – Pre-Order T&A! I love doing a pre-order because it’s right there on my tablet or phone the minute the book goes live – I don’t have to do a thing. You can pre-order T&A from your favorite E-Book retailer by going here.
Jan 5 – Give a book to a friend. Books are honestly some of the best gifts. I also love giving recs (and getting them!). It’s cold outside – stay in and read!
Jan 6 – Treat yourself to something sweet! Okay, some of us might be a little overloaded from the holidays, but treating yourself to something sweet doesn’t always have to be food (although why not?). Just be good to yourself today – you deserve it!
Jan 7 – My book goes LIVE!!! You can read an excerpt here.
Okay, bonus questions – how many times did I need to use my spellchecker to write the word calendar? If your answer is all of them – you’re correct!
Everyone loves a contest, right?!
Rather than giving a single larger prize this go around, I’ve opted to do a 5 For 5 Contest, so more people can win. Prize – five RS selected winner(s) will receive a $5.00 electronic gift card to Amazon or iTunes (or ebook publisher of choice). You’ll have five opportunities to enter and a month to do it. You can do one, two or all five – good luck!
