Three New Jericho Brotherhood Books

YAY! I have signed a contract to deliver three new books from the Jericho Brotherhood world with my publishing partner Carina Press!

This new series of three books focuses on the new Brotherhood Bonds business–that’s right–sexy bikers who are bounty hunters! That’s hot, right?

 

Surely I’m not the only one who thinks so. These books have the same sexy flavor as the Jericho Brotherhood series with a bit more danger.

The first book, Bail Out, features Rebel and Elle who compete to take down bounties but end up tying the knot to save her business–and that’s only the beginning. You can look for it late this summer.

Shake Down, the second book will be released late in 2017 and showcases JoJo and  Charlie–the bounty hunter and the detective. Do opposites attract as they both chase down the same bad guy?

Get Away follows Glory, a friend from Enough, book one of the Jericho Brotherhood, to Las Vegas. Delta rides in to save the day when things get dangerous for Glory in the City of Sin. It will be available early in 2018.

All these tough guys will make you want to jump bail just so they can catch you!

During my trip to RWA…I found the best agent ever

That should be the end of my post because doesn’t it say it all! 2016 has become the year my writing career officially launched in so many ways.

In January 2016 I signed my first 3-book deal with Carina Press, part of the Harlequin family.

Then in July 11 2016 my first book was released for sale, making me the happiest girl in the world. I mean that was such a big moment in my life I will never be able to thank Angela James enough for believing in me and my Jericho Brotherhood series.

My friends all said—“Go to RWA. You have to go to nationals this year.” I agreed and sacrificed to make that happen. The goal oriented girl I was I told only my two closest writing friends my dream goal—to get an agent at RWA.

And I did it!!! A super great friend introduced me to Jessica Watterson, Sandra Dijkstra Agency, at RWA and she and I squeezed in a quick drink before lunch to talk writing careers! We were on the same page at once, and I crossed my fingers she’d like my work enough to be my agent.

The week after RWA, I begged friends to critique the work I was sending before I hit send. Days floated by and sooner than I had any write to expect, Jessica emailed, then we talked and then I signed!

We are new on our journey together, but I feel extremely blessed that my 2016 goals are becoming a reality. Only one more to go—sign a contract to publish a fourth book before the end of the year! Fingers-crossed, agent-on-board, I am hopeful that I will have achieve this goal too!

The Wait is Over …. I Signed My First Contract!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Everyone had a difPublishing text on paperholeferent writing journey, and I want to publish with a traditional or electronic press. I wrote, I edited, I learned and did it all again, again and again. I could plaster a wall if I printed all my rejections, which is fine, I have a tough skin. And then one day I got the call. And yes, the call is all it’s rumored to be! I actually jumped up and down in my work parking lot, Scout’s honor.  Not only had I sold  Enough, Jericho Brotherhood series book one, I signed a three book deal! Yes. I loved it, and I do love it. And the deal is published and everything.

“Jade Chandler’s JERICHO BROTHERHOOD motorcycle club series, kicking off with ENOUGH, in which a wild tattoo artist is caught between the woman he loves and the ruthless MC brothers to whom he owes it all, to Angela James at Carina Press, in a three-book deal, for publication in beginning July 2016 (World).” — Publisher’s Marketplace

This book is erotic romance with bikers who no one would define as easy-going. Their lives are tough, they are complicated, and the women they love are equally difficult, but the heroes would give their lives for their women and the motorcycle club.

Now the waiting begins again…

My awesome editor at Carina Press is editing Enough right now! It may come out as soon as this summer (yikes!) and I’m typing fast on the second book. But this time before covers and big reveals makes the excitement harder to share, so I decided to post it here. Come back by and check out the progress on the process.  In the meantime checkout the sexy guys I use for inspiration, marketing tips and writing tips on my blog. Sign up on my website and I’ll share the cover first with you!!!!

All my best,

Jade
