Release week! And Deadline week!

Having a book come out the same week I'm frantically finishing another book (due Monday) makes for some major stress! I'm running around like a hysterical thing, papers flying, phones ringing, cats shedding. It's a crazy mess.

So for my post today, I'm going to do BSP. My new release, Pride Mates is selling very well, from what I've been hearing, and readers are loving it! So thank you, readers, who have already contacted me to say you want more Shifters. I so much appreciate the feedback!


I am very excited to announce the release of PRIDE MATES (Jan. 26), which introduces a brand new series of shape shifter novels.

If you enjoyed my alter-ego Allyson James’s Dragon or Shareem series, or Jennifer Ashley’s Immortals series, I think you’ll enjoy this one too.


Twenty years ago, shape shifters of all kinds banded together and announced themselves to the world, only to be shunted to areas no human wanted ("Shiftertowns"). They are forced to wear Collars that control their hunting and fighting instincts (referred to by Shifters as "Taking the Collar").

Liam Morrissey is currently liaison between the Shifters of Austin, Texas, and the humans of the city. Kim Fraser, attorney, finds herself in the unique position of having to defend a Shifter on a murder charge.

She ventures to Shiftertown to seek out Liam's help, and there stumbles across too many secrets the Shifters want kept secret. The un-mated Liam is forced to protect Kim against the wrath of his clan leader and his own father, and to his surprise he discovers a powerful attraction to the sassy, sexy lady.

I have a website devoted to the series:
where you can learn all about Shifters and the books, read excerpts and blurbs, and other good stuff. I have a contract with Berkley to continue the series, which I am working on right now.


As some of you may know, PRIDE MATES will be the last book I do at Dorchester Publishing. I’ve pretty much moved lock, stock, and barrel to Berkley, and they will now publish both my Allyson James and Jennifer Ashley novels. Dorchester will still publish my backlist, most of which is still in print and available at bookstores or from online booksellers (Amazon, B&N, Borders, etc.).


More Mackenzies! LADY ISABELLA’S SCANDALOUS MARRIAGE will be out in July 2010, followed by Cam’s and Hart’s stories. Please see my website for the beautiful cover of LADY ISABELLA (, plus the Mackenzies site for details on the series:

Also, if you enjoy sexy urban fantasy, check out my new Allyson James series, STORMWALKER, featuring a young Navajo woman who can channel the power of storms to work great magic. (I say “urban” fantasy, but it’s set in a small town near Navajo country in the Southwest, and there is plenty of romance in it.)

STORMWALKER debuts from Berkley Sensation in May 2010.
That series also has a site:


Because I have so many books published now, I created a page on my website that lists all series, under all pseudonyms, with the books of each, in order. I’ve projected out as far as I can with upcoming books. I hope you find the page helpful!

END BSP. Everyone have a great day!!

Wow, Jenn! We can't tell the players without a program. Thanks for posting that series page on your website!

Dorchester will miss you sorely. You wrote some wonderful books for them. I wish you so much success in your new publishing home!

But just remember "Once a Lollie (Lady of Leisure) always a Lollie!"
