Jazz Baby is officially out!
I has a book. I has a bright, shiny book. It's not quite pettable though, since it's an ebook. I'll have to wait 'til early 2011 and the paperback version before I can hug it and squeeze it and call it George. Having to wipe off my computer screen 'cause I keep petting it is getting a little tiresome.

But still. A book. MY book. That I labored over for a LONG time. It's all sparkly and going out to the world at large. Even better? People actually seem to be liking it. Shocking, I know! I've already collected a couple reviews that I'd like to hug and squeeze as well. Katiebabs gave it an A- and called it "an excellent, well written romance that comes across somewhat literary in its telling." E at Bookpushers gave it 4.5 out of 5 stars and said she was "immediately drawn into the world of speakeasies, and undercover agents."

Here's the blurb:

Of all the juice joints he had to bust, this one had to be hers…

In the world of illegal speakeasies, Kate Kirkland has her life running smoother than a Model T. Maybe moving the family bar into the basement wasn’t the best choice for her alcoholic brother, but Kate’s making them a living—until a local gangster tries to expand his territory. Right into her bar.

Luckily Micah Trent, her handsome and too-suave bootlegger, is ready and willing to offer her a helping hand. If Kate can bring herself to accept it. Since sharing one sensual dance to seal their deal, she can’t ignore the delectably wicked way he makes her feel.

Micah is keeping secrets of his own. He’s a Prohibition Agent, sworn to shut down the gin mills and distilleries that keep illegal booze flowing. Kate’s speakeasy is next on his list—right after he uses her as bait to catch the gangster hunting her.

But even if Micah and Kate can maneuver their way through the gangsters’ dangerous underworld, will their love survive the trial by fire?

Sound good? It can be purchased at either My Bookstore and More or Books on Board. *hint hint, nudge nudge* Also, tune back in here Thursday for a special contest I'll be running with Lisabea, also known as LB Gregg
