CRAZY LOVE

Dylan Hart and Skeeter Bang are back!  After months of waiting, and weeks of writing, I am thrilled to announce that CRAZY LOVE, Steele Street book #5, is finally back on sale in ebook form.  I added two new chapters in the second half of the book, and about a chapter’s worth of new material here and there, making the ebook version 10% bigger than the original paperback. 

Now why in the world did I do that?

Well, I always felt the book was too small, that I’d missed a few important things in one of the most vital relationships in Steele Street – but until the rights reverted back to me, I never had the chance to write the “missing scenes” and make the book bigger and better.  I love the new chapters :-)   They’re all face-to-face time with Skeeter and Dylan after their crazy wild night in the Impala, and being back with the bad girl and the boss these last couple of months has been a blast!  Hope you all enjoy this “director’s cut” of CRAZY LOVE :-)

DAY 2 – TRAVIS FIMMEL

It’s DAY 2 of BBB week, and all I can say is, this guy is in a class all by himself.  My office was plastered with pics of TF while I was writing CRAZY WILD  and CRAZY SWEET – I had a pic of him in handcuffs getting arrested (for a magazine spread) and if I can find it, I’ll post it – that was the Creed photo, very rough and tumble.  I was a huge fan of the short-lived TV series “Tarzan and Jane.”  Does anybody else remember that show?  And that Calvin Klein underwear pic is the one that rocket-launched his career.  I noticed it :-)   How about you??

TARA JANZEN – BLOG #1

Well, this is it, boys and girls, my first blog on the new Tara Janzen NEWSFLASH:BLOG. Mostly it will be me blathering along here, but every now and then I’ll have a guest blogger, run a contest or two, announce books as they come out, and let you know what I’m working on – which for the last few months has been publishing my backlist as ebooks, and revamping and updating the web site.

Avenging AngelSo far, I’ve gotten ten of my Loveswept romances online and available for sale again as Ebooks:Classic Romances, with three more to go. AVENGING ANGEL is a RITA Award winning book and really hints at where I was headed with my imagination, with its fast-paced action, the hot car in the first scene, and that our hero is packing some real firepower – all shades of the CRAZY/LOOSE books to come. Chapter Three in SHAMELESS is Shamelessstill one of my all-time favorite chapters. I loved it when I wrote it, and reading it again in preparation for the book’s ebook debut was a real treat. The book still touches my heart and is on Romantic Times’s All-Time Favorite list, a real keeper. There a few adventure romances in the Lovewepts – quite a few – especially THE DRAGON AND THE DOVE, DRAGON’S EDEN, and OUTLAW CARSON. And all the books have hot new covers from Hot Damn Designs – thank you, Kim!

Crazy KissesCRAZY KISSES is back online as an ebook, and CRAZY LOVE will be coming soon. Both are still available in paperback, both online and in bookstores, at least for now. The rest of the STEELE STREET books, from CRAZY HOT to LOOSE ENDS, are still all available online and from bookstores in ebook and paperback.

Crazy LoveRIVER OF EDEN is one of my all-time favorite books, and also another of Romantic Times Magazine’s All-Time Favorite books: “RIVER OF EDEN is one of THE most breathtaking and phenomenal adventure tales to come along in years! Glenna McReynolds has created an instant adventure classic.” Jill M. Smith for Romantic Times. 2002 Best Romantic Suspense Winner

I’ll be excited to get ROE online. I’ll blog about the amazing research for the book when it’s up and running, and tell you about the amazing letter I got after it was published the first time by Bantam Books.

Dragon's EdenThose of you who first read me as Tara Janzen, might not know that I started out writing as Glenna McReynolds, or that I wrote an epic medieval fantasy/romance trilogy: THE CHALICE AND THE BLADE, DREAM STONE, and PRINCE OF TIME. The books were widely acclaimed, here and internationally, and I’m thrilled to be making them available as ebooks.

Once I get all these books online, I’ll be getting back to what I REALLY love – writing a new book. I’ve got three of them in mind, so we’ll see which one tugs the hardest. I’m hoping to have a brand new story published by the end of the year.

Oh, and one more thing – CRAZY KISSES is on sale until the end of March, for $2.99 – the same price as all my Ebooks: Classic Romances (the Loveswepts).

Until next time – TJ
