As you know – it’s the first Friday of the month and before I get into my blog, I want to give a shout out to those of us at Backspace that have releases this month along with a special shout out.   So without further adieu . . . here’s to the following July releases: 

Jon Clinch -KINGS OF THE EARTH, and Lauren Baratz-Logsted – THE EDUCATION OF BET.  Don’t forget my two releases this month: DARK RECKONING and SURVIVAL GAMES.  Now for that special shout out to those who like a good horror story, check out John Everson’s SIREN released at the end of this month.  He’ll be on this blog on Friday the 13th of August talking about both SIREN and The 13th which was released earlier this year.  Stay tuned . . .

Now back to our regularly scheduled program . . .

Summer is upon us and we’re getting ready to celebrate the anniversary of our country’s freedom.  The 4th of July is always such fun, especially in New England.  I love this time of year because my birthday follows the 4th of July and sometimes there are fireworks on MY birthday too.  And I’m not necessarily talking about those that sparkle in the air. 🙂

TMI?  Oops, sorry but after 21 years of marriage, it’s nice to know the fireworks are still burning bright!   

But I digress.  This year, I seemed to have lucked out on my birthday gift.  My birthday coincides with the release of my debut novel.  Dark Reckoning, my mainstream paranormal suspense about FBI special agent Steve Williams, a clairvoyant college co-ed named Jennifer, and a killer that she swears isn’t human, is coming out on July 5, 2010.   And then two weeks later I’ve got my erotic thriller SURVIVAL GAMES knocking on the release door. 

I’ve been invited to blog or be interviewed on a whole host of blogs and there are give-aways on a few of these stops: 

July 5th on Randy Susan Meyers blog: http://www.randysusanmeyers.com/blog/

July 7th I’ll be over with CJ Gabriel – http://www.cjgabrielbook.blogspot.com

July 8th is something special – Anita Philmar and I did a “what if” scenario introducing my main character Steve Williams to her main character Danni in a story that starts on her blog  http://anitaphilmar.blogspot.com and ends here on mine.  It’s a fun intro to both our characters, so show some love and check it out!   

July 12th I’ve got my normal guest spot over on eXcessica’s blog:   http://www.excessica.com/blog

July 14th:   Cate Masters blog and giving away a signed copy of Survival Games to one of the lucky folks that posts there. 

July 14th : I’m also over at http://www.roxannesreal.blogspot.com / http://www.fang-tasticbooks.blogspot and again will have another Survival Games giveaway. 

July 16th – I’ll have my normal Friday blog here. 

July 21st I’m at two separate places as well:  Lisabet Sarai – http:lisabetsarai.blogspot.com and then over at

CJ Gabriale books again.  I’ll have book giveaways of Survival Games for each of these as well. 

You can see all these stops on my calendar page on my website along with the guests on my blog for the next couple months!  Check it out – http://www.JETaylor75.com

As you can see, July is a tremendously busy month with all this, I also have a vacation nudged in the middle of the chaos.  I have a feeling this summer is going to go by in a blink and I’ll be stunned when September rolls around again and the kids have to go back to school.  I certainly hope you’ll follow the zigzag pattern of my blog tour and say hi at the different places.  Who knows, I may have an extra special treat for someone now that DARK RECKONING is also being released in paperback. 

Hope to see you all there!

Ciao!
