Dreams by Jambrea Jo Jones

June 2008 I worked up the nerve to pitch a story at the Lori Foster event. I was VERY nervous. It was the first story that I actually finished. After my pitch I was told to send in the full. And the wait began. I hit the check mail button a dozen times a day. Until finally I got that email. A rejection. I was sad, but got some GREAT feed back. I put the story aside and didn’t think anything about it.

One fateful day I was minding my own business when a received an email saying Total E-Bound had a call out for a shifter anthology. I’m like, hey, I have a shifter story. I opened up the document and took a look and immediately saw why the story was rejected. lol It wasn’t pretty, but I knew I could fix it. So I set about making my story better. I used the information from the rejection and some tips I’d learned from another editor and polished it up. Next thing I know, I’m getting my acceptance letter. talk about jumping for joy. My first story is being released, November 16, 2009.

Here is the blub. I hope you enjoy it.

Anabella’s dreams bring her to David, but is he the salvation she’s looking for?

Anabella Pouge is plagued with powers she can’t control, making her life far from normal when all she wants is ordinary. Change is coming her way when she must flee with a man straight out of her dreams.David Sanders is sent to find Anabella. Without her, the future of his wolf pack is in danger. Forced to travel to the middle of nowhere, David finds Anabella might mean more than just his pack’s survival.Will the two make it back to the pack in time? Can Anabella and David accept each other and the coming changes to their lives?
Stay tuned because I’ll be posted blog from the other authors of this anthology this week.  🙂

    • Hi Caffey! Thanks! This is the first book in a series. I have 4 maybe 5 planned. 🙂 I have a small start on each of them. They will be stand alone…Um…I hope. lol By that I mean I’ll wrap up each persons story, but the big fight is a carry over.

      I actually have a yahoo group now that I share with some authors you might know. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Heat_Wave_Readers/ We have the International Heat blog together as well and JUST started the yahoo group. We have excerpts and stuff there. As a matter of fact, I just posted a Dreams excerpt today. 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by and asking such a great question. 🙂
