New J.A. Garland Logo

What better way to ring in the New Year, than with a re-imagined J.A. Garland logo? Thanks to ParaJunkee Design, my 2014 couldn't have started any better! 
While I've been more than thrilled with my old logo, I felt the time had come to 'update' the design into a fresher, more polished look. Still, I didn't want to lose the basic elements of the logo-- the elf, the banner, the forest and the leaf circle border. Enter Rachel at ParaJunkee Designs. She worked her magic, managing to keep those design elements, and yet give them the professional shine I craved. Thank you, Rachel, I love the new logo!

Want to share in my excitement? Enter below for a chance to win a  J.A. Garland Books mug, mouse pad, or a tote bag, all items sporting the new logo.

Naughty or Nice Blog Hop


I know this is the Naughty or Nice blog hop, but I’m positive we all made Santa’s Nice list this year, right? Um, well, most of the time? No? Hmmm, how about every Sunday and alternate Thursdays? Lol, well no fear, at J.A. Garland Books, we all made the Nice list! And you know what that means? No, I’m not jimmying down your chimney with gifts, the post office delivers them just fine, thank you. It means that besides the hop's grand prize of a Kindle Fire, I am giving you a chance to win some of my favorite things…

Bobbing for Books Blog Hop!

A Bookish Escape

Who can resist a blog hop called "Bobbing for Books?" Not me! Apples might keep the doctor away, but books keep the doldrums away.

Happy Halloween Blog Hop!

"Welcome to the Happy Halloween Blog Hop," Hex giggled evilly. "We have a lot of fun things planned for you." 
"Fun, Hex? I don't think that's-" her bat squeaked.
"Hush before I spice my stew with your wings. They'll figure it out eventually. Well, if they dare enter."

Sunset on Summer Fun Blog Hop

(ENTER BELOW)
Like a parent asked to pick their favorite child, it's impossible for me to declare my favorite season. 
I love spring for the new growth and warming temperatures, summer for the long days and bountiful fruits, fall for the spectacular array of colors, and winter for the cozy nights spent sipping hot chocolate.

Cabin Goddess

Cabin Goddess
"Ever wonder what it would be like to sit down with your characters and drink a coffee?" That's the question Kriss of Cabin Goddess posed to me. To be honest, I hadn't. But once I started, I couldn't stop, and found myself signing up for a Fourth Wall post. For those of you not aware of the Fourth Wall, it's a special feature on Kriss' website where authors and their characters, well, sit down and chat. Sound interesting? Then stop by Cabin Goddess and see what Slade and I were cooking in the kitchen...

Vamps vs Zombie Blog Hop
Welcome to the Vamps vs Zombies blog hop. Chances are, you happened upon this blog hop much like I did. We were aimlessly wandering the internet, and started following threads of interest...namely, vampires and zombies! Having written three books with vampires, being hopelessly addicted to The Walking Dead, and running a zombie race--I think this blog hop is the perfect place for me.
Wait, did she say zombie race? Yes, I did, and if you haven't experienced one, you should!

Now it's your turn to tell me about your favorite zombie and/or vampire things and maybe win a vampire book or zombie soap.



Don't give up! Drag yourself to the next blog stop HERE!
