Announcing Chasing Anya and National Wormhole Week

Available today from J. L. Campbell - Chasing Anya!

Been there. Done that.

Feisty and independent, Anya Davies lives by her own rules. The one thing she’s hell-bent on avoiding is a conventional relationship. Nor is she interested in romance, thanks to her abusive ex who refuses to stay in the past. The second complication in her life is a secret that condemns her to constant guilt and a solitary life. A series of near misses and escalating threats are a third and worrying factor. Only a special man would understand or live with Anya’s challenges and demands.

Casual sex...so not having that.

Enter Christophe Mondesir. Two years ago, Anya dumped him without explanation. An accidental meeting shoots Anya back on Christophe’s radar. He refuses to be denied and plans to breach the fortress Anya has built around her heart—if she’ll commit to more than a casual liaison. He’s also determined to find out what she’s hiding. That’s if the stalker who’s after Anya doesn’t end her life first.

J.L. Campbell is a proud Jamaican, who is always on the hunt for story-making material.

She writes romantic suspense, women's fiction and young adult novels. She is the author of Anya's Wish, Chasing Anya, Contraband, Christine's Odyssey, Dissolution, Distraction, Don't Get Mad...Get Even, Retribution, Saving Sam, and Hardware (written under the pen name Jayda McTyson).

2014 National Wormhole Week! 


Hosted by Stephen Tremp, Alex J. Cavanaugh, and myself.

This blogfest, also known as “Wormfest,” runs March 10-16, 2014, and is a celebration of Stephen’s upcoming release, Escalation.

Rules are simple:

Name one thing where science advances mankind, and one where technology will go too far and set us back. They can be the same thing or different.

Example: De-extinction or bringing back extinction species through backbreeding, genetic engineering, and cloning. (Article here.) With all the breakthrough discoveries mankind is on the cusp of, are we playing God?

Jemi Fraser said...

JL writes terrific stories! This sounds like another winner!

Carol Kilgore said...

National Wormhole Week! I think going through a wormhole would be like Alice sliding down the Rabbit Hole. But so interesting!

I just read about Joy's book on another blog. I wish her much success.

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Perfect timing or J.L's book. It's National Stalking Awareness Month. Yep, I only found out about that today because of my book and blog post.

Medeia Sharif said...

I look forward to reading Joy's book.

That hop has me stumped, or otherwise I'd join right away. I guess I'm not as science-minded as I thought I was.

Michael Di Gesu said...

Hi, L. Diane ....


CONGRATS JOY! All the best with your newest novel!!!

Elizabeth Seckman said...

There's a bit of Joy everywhere!

Mary Montague Sikes said...

J.L., I love Jamaica. Good luck with your book. Thanks, Diane, for hosting her.

The blog fest sounds interesting, but baseball spring training will be in full swing then. I can hardly wait!

M Pax said...

Woo hoo for Joy! She's such an awesome writer.

Hi Dianne,

Just dropping by to wish you a Happy Blitz Day!

I hope life is treating you well, I have been busy of late, with a lot of inconveniences, but hopefully I will be back on track soon.

Congrats, and the cover looks great!

Elizabeth Hein said...

Wormfest sounds like it is going to be fun. Happy Blitz day.

DL Hammons said...

I've been familiar with J.L.'s work for some time now and it looks like she has another winner!

I'd love to do the Blogfest, but my manuscript comes first and I only have time to....

BLITZ! Surprise. :)

Melanie Schulz said...

Looking forward to Wormfest!

Petre Pan said...

Oooh I love the wormhole blog idea! I wish I could participate...we'll see, maybe I can! Also, the book sounds interesting. I like the possible themes, and it sounds intriguing--before I check it out, is it erotica, or romance? I avoid erotica and pro-casual-sex books, but I'm looking for a good black romance to cuddle with.

Oh also, happy blitz day!

Christine Rains said...

Congrats to JL! I've been seeing her around a lot. And happy Blitz Day, Diane! :)

Susan Stuckey said...

Sounds like a very interesting book and like the cover. Best of luck. Happy #Blitz Day

JL's story sounds intriguing. I like feisty characters and a man who knows what he wants and is willing to adapt to get it. :-)

I'm still contemplating the wormhole blog. Mostly on which idea works.

Have a great day Diane!

klahanie said...

Hi Diane,

First of all, I find it most disrespectful that some folks don't seem to actually read your post, but only make mention of it being this blitz thing. Sorry, rant over.

I'm delighted to make note of J.L and her book, "Chasing Anya". It's very good of you to do this, Diane. I shall duly share your posting.

And no, please, I beg you, make all these blogfests stop. Thank you :)

Gary
