Thanks so much to K-lee for hosting this month of fun giveaways!
As a general thing, I'm terrible at blogging, which made me nervous when K-lee asked if I'd like to contribute a post for her reader appreciation week. *frets* When she mentioned the topic of gratitude, though, I signed right on because, quite honestly, there is so much in my life for which I'm thankful.
It's so easy, especially around the holidays with advertising that tells us we all need more more MORE, to get caught up in everything new and shiny without taking a step back to realize the good things that have stood the test of time.
I'm so thankful for my parents, who have always supported me through everything and who taught me so many important things in life: love, respect, hard work, and perseverance.
I'm thankful for my health. My friends. The beauty of the sunset. Being able to learn. Having a computer on which to research things, read, write, and interact with friends all around the world. Having food in the pantry and clean water. Reading for fun and for knowledge. Having the ability to read in the first place.
I've reached a point in my life when I don't really need much by way of material things. Sure, it would be cool to get a new iPad to replace my first generation iPad or upgrade to the faster internet, but do I need it? No. Learning to be thankful for what I have has taught me that less can definitely be more than enough—especially when what I already have in my life is pretty amazing already.
Hugs to all of you readers! I'm thankful for your enthusiasm, support, and the life you breathe into my stories and characters.
As an expression of my thanks, I'd like to offer any standalone title in my backlist. You can see the full list on All Romance eBooks here: https://www.allromanceebooks.com/storeSearch.html?searchBy=author&qString=Nico+Jaye
My most recent release is Unscripted, part of the Heartsville collaboration with Piper Vaughn, J.H. Knight, Jayden Brooks, and Cate Ashwood.
Nico Jaye is a fan of all things HEA and has dragged her romance collection along for her moves from San Francisco to Los Angeles to Chicago to New York and back. She thinks reading is awesome and loves that she can hang out night after night with crinoline-wearing debutantes, brawny firemen in suspenders, and werewolf shifters with Scottish brogues. Her favorite stories are those that marry smut and fluff (a.k.a. smuff) into a gooey ball of HEA and fuzzies.
An overall feline enthusiast, Nico secretly (or not so secretly?) adores Hello Kitty, cat GIFs, spontaneous traveling, pretending to be crafty, emoticons, hot menfolk, and parenthetical statements (not necessarily in that order). After starting as the pitcher for Team Awesome (literally) and visiting places like South Africa, Oman, and Fiji, Nico discovered that letting the boys in her head tell her where they want to go could actually be the most exciting journey of all.
