Hello from an old friend :)

Testing, testing, 1, 2, 3…is this thing still on? 🙂

It’s been awhile.  I slipped in quietly for fear of frying pans and other sweet tortures you may have devised for me.  They would be well deserved, I have been quiet for too long, and for that I do apologize. I meant to swing round and say hi much sooner than this, but it’s been a crazy year for me, as it has for some of you, I am sure.

First, thank you to all the wonderful people who left comments asking when I would be returning, and sharing their love for my stories here.  They always make me smile, and they always lift me up when I’m having a tough day.  Your support and faith in my writing was, and still is, the foundation of everything I am trying to do right now.

What is that, you ask? Holding the frying pan up high, waiting to see if you are going to throw it at me?  🙂   I’ve been writing, trying to build a world of my own that inspires readers like yourselves to the level of passion that we all shared for TB and SVM.

In August I launched  a new pen name, Cybill Cain.  So far, she writes steamy contemporary romance stories that center around a group called The Chimera Club.  The first story I released was called Poker Face, and it told the story of Brandon,  a rich man who agrees to play a one night high stakes erotic poker game while wagering his entire fortune on being able to keep his head in the game while he simultaneously seduces a virgin.   Camille is the woman he winds up with for a partner, and though she is young and dealing with a lot, she has her head in the game to win, and to win his heart as well.  In that story we meet the head of Chimera, a seemingly shady man called Thomas Meenan, who orchestrates the entire affair. It’s funny, and romantic, though the description of the events around the love story seem fantastic and surreal, and it received good reviews from those who were willing to take a chance on it.

My second release, Escape, was the story of a movie star who falls in love with a reclusive artist while staying at her B&B on his vacation.  Thomas Meenan and Chimera co-own the B&B and we get to see a different side of his character, in addition to a great love story between the leads, Max and Annie.  This was more of straightforward old fashioned romance with some mystery thrown in, and again it was pretty well received.

My third book, Haunted, was a second chance romance about a security guard who works for Thomas Meenan and Chimera, named Stacy, and his old high school sweetheart Janine.  There’s some excitement, some intrigue and some action, of all kinds in this one, and readers seemed to enjoy seeing them get their second chance at love.

My fourth book, Delicious, comes out on 11/30 and is a Christmas love story about the billionaire behind Chimera, Thomas Meenan’s boss, and the woman he sees across a crowded restaurant that takes his breath away.  Before he can meet her, he is in a car accident that leaves him scarred and angry, and he locks himself away on the other side of the world, until Meenan finds her and sends her to him, believing only she can save him.

The true function of Chimera is something we are learning about as each story is released, but each story is a stand alone steamy romance that features the couple and how they get together.

It’s not the world we all love here, but it is my world, and I wanted to personally invite you all to join me there! It’s still growing, there is a lot going on both in front of the camera, so to speak,  and behind it, that I would genuinely love for you to be a part of.

Come and stalk me, bring your frying pans and your flying monkeys, and don’t be afraid to use them.  I need your passion there just as much as I did here!

It’s a little early, I know, but I wish you all the happiest of holiday seasons, and hope this finds you all well and good. Know that you are never far from my thoughts, and that many times as I write I stop and think of what you all might say about whatever fool thing that just traveled from my mind to my keyboard, and it always makes me smile.

All my love,

A Shout Out :)

Good evening all!

Let me start by saying, I miss the hell out of all of you!

Things have been quiet on the Storyteller front blogwise,  and I am hoping that you will follow me and come by for chats and coffee, soon.  You can even put your feet on the coffee table, and I can add a little something something of your choice to your coffee to make you feel right at home there as you have here!

One of the bugs I ran into when I launched the new site was that because it was hosted there was no FOLLOW ME button to get my posts into your Reader feeds.  I FINALLY cracked that issue last night!

If you want to follow me on jabrownstoryteller.com all you have to do is this:

  1. Open your reader window
  2. Click on “Manage” Followed Sites
  3. In the bar the top where it says “Enter a site URL to follow” type jabrownstoryteller.com  wait a few seconds, and it will confirm that you are now following me, and you are done! My posts from Storyteller should pop into your feeds immediately!

I hope, HOPE, HOPE that you do, because I do miss chatting with you. I am trying to publish a little something everyday to keep conversation going and to entertain you, and of course you would get updates for newly published stories as well.

I have also added a newsletter sign up this week. It’s on the menu bar at the top of the page.   Once I get some folks in on that, I plan to offer specials to the subscribers that will not be offered to the general public. Special prizes like signed books, and free short stories that add to the worlds I am creating, and even deleted scenes that might be too hot for just anyone to see! So please sign up while you are there looking around!

A quick update on where I am with writing and publishing. Since 9/1 I have published three books, Dreams, Nightmares and Put Your Lights On, which just came out this week.You can purchase them here on Amazon.  I have my third book of the Dreams series, Awakenings, launching on 11/1.

Once I get past 11/1, after I have room to breathe (cause what the hell was I thinking setting a schedule like that??) I am planning to do some posts talking more in depth about that experience over all. I have learned many things, and still have much more to learn, but I want to share the good and the bad to help any of you who are also thinking of taking a leap into publishing.

In the world of new news, the fourth book of the Dreams Series will be coming in 2017, more on an exact date in the weeks to come.  This will continue our story with Mads and Malik and what happened after they walked through the door.  I am very excited to get back into that world with you all and give you something new and exciting with those beloved characters! The working title is Mosaic, Dreams Series Book 4, and this is the first time  I have shared that! 🙂

Also, I have planned a second book in the PYLO series for next year called, The Gunslinger’s Wife, and will continue our story picking up with Barton and his wife after the epic battle that we saw in Chicago.  We will see other familiar faces as well as we move deeper into that world, and I can’t wait to share it with you all!

Add me to your feeds, sign up for my newsletter and come by and say hi! 🙂

*Hugs*

See you soon!
