Best of Janelle

Posted by Janelle at Dec 23, 2013 6:00 am

By now, you all have probably heard that by the end of this month, Plotmonkeys will close their doors.  I have to say that it’s been one of the hardest decisions I’ve had to make in my career.  I’ve forged so many special friendships here in the jungle, and you all will be missed!  But […]


Fun Holiday Questions . . .

Posted by Janelle at Dec 16, 2013 6:00 am

Hard to believe the Christmas is only 9 days away!   I’m curious to know everyone’s preferences to the following holiday questions: Christmas lights on your house, or none?  (Me:  Christmas lights on the house!) Do you have a real tree, or fake tree?  (Me:  Fake Tree!) When wrapping presents, do you prefer to wrap the […]


My Holiday Guilty Pleasure

Posted by Janelle at Dec 9, 2013 6:00 am

I have a confession to make.  My holiday guilty pleasure is . . . watching the Victoria’s Secret Holiday Fashion Show on TV.  I tell my husband that I tape/DVR it for him, but the truth is, I LOVE watching those models in all their elaborate wings and costumes.  Do you have a holiday guilty […]

My Best Black Friday Deal

Posted by Janelle at Dec 2, 2013 6:00 am

I have to admit, I’m not a fan of Black Friday — or rather, going OUT into the Black Friday chaos.  But I’m not opposed to sitting with my laptop in my pajamas and checking out the Black Friday sales on my computer.  There wasn’t a whole lot out there that got my attention, until […]


What are you reading Saturday

Posted by Janelle at Nov 30, 2013 6:00 am

The most recent story I read was something very different — TRY by Ella Frank.  Different, because it was an erotic male/male romance.  If you enjoy that sort of romance, give it a “Try”, LOL! What is everyone else reading?


Just in Case You Didn’t Know . . .

I’m in a boxed set with 5 other authors who write hot, sexy, erotic romances.  And the best part is, the boxed set is FREE! Even if you’ve read my story, which is THE AWAKENING, the first book in my Marriage Diaries series, there are five more stories for you to enjoy! AMAZON KOBO ITUNES […]


Welcome Guest Blogger Jeannie Moon

Thanks so much for having me here today! I’m thrilled to be chatting about the second of my Forever Love Stories, Unexpectedly Yours. Caroline Rossi, the heroine in Unexpectedly Yours, is a brilliant geotechnical engineer (Yes, I said that…) who wants to be a romance author.  Her dream to write is not a major part […]


The Many Sub-Genres of Romance

Posted by Janelle at Nov 11, 2013 6:00 am

Today I want to talk about the many “sub-genres” of romance (books).  For those who aren’t familiar with the “sub-genre” term, it encompasses all the “categories” within romance, such as romantic suspense, historical romance, paranormal romance, contemporary romance, inspirational romance, new adult romance, erotic romance, etc.   A lot of these sub-genres are fads that ride […]
