Jody and I are working on some new Dragons of Tarakona books! First up is Pearl of Wisdom, featuring a human from Tarakona with a magical ailment and a surly earth wizard who can help – for a price.
Blackmailed by the only man who can heal her—what’s a Pearl to do?
Pearl Courtier is a nobody. A human from Tarakona who just happens to have a famous wizard brother. When a lab accident transforms her into a walking lie detector, Pearl travels across worlds to seek help from a wizard on another planet.
But stiff-necked enchanter Everett DeBoer only agrees to remove her curse if she’ll pretend to be his girlfriend, accompany him to a business conference, and tell him which of his colleagues are lying. What will Pearl do when she discovers his own lies—and how deadly they might be for both of them?
Pearl of Wisdom will be out in early June! We have two more Tarakona books in the pipeline: The Dragon with the Pearl Earring and Pearl Diver. Look for those this fall.
Now for some really fun news! Meet the latest edition to the Sieders Clan Clowder! Sheila came to us in February and entertains us with her shenanigans. She’s a purr monster and attention seeker who meows nonstop and is super sleek and pretty. I love my new writing mascot!
She and Kuro split that duty while Vanilla sits on the sofa and supervises.
The cats (and Jody) are cracking the whip, so look for more updates soon!
Woo Hoo! Gorgeous New Cover for my upcoming release! Had to share. Stay tuned for release date, links, and giveaways to celebrate Three Wishes (Southern Elemental Guardians Novella 2.5).

happily ever afters permanently?
I LOVE the creative process, and I thought you folks might enjoy a glimpse at what goes into digital image creation.
I had the great fortune to acquire digital art from Tobie Cote of Framebox. Check him out if you have the chance – he’s done amazing work for film, games, and all kinds of stunning, visually oriented projects. Honestly, if I’d thoroughly cyberstalked, er, researched him before I sent a message asking about image availability, I might have been too star struck to ask!
I’m glad I did, though, since he was able to offer me a deal on the absolutely GORGEOUS image that became the basis for the Crosscurrents cover.
Here’s his video showing how the image was created. Very cool! I hope you all enjoy his incredible work!
Whenever I pick up a book written by Jessi Gage, I know I’m going to smile, swoon, and share an adventure with unforgettable characters. I loved Reckless, the first in her Blue Collar Boyfriends series, so I’m very excited to share the cover and blurb for the second, Jade’s Spirit.
When exotic dancer Jade seeks refuge from an abusive boyfriend in her grandmother’s aging Victorian home, she finds she’s not the only houseguest. A dream-invading incubus has taken up residence, and it wants Jade’s soul. Fortunately, a flirtatious lawn-care provider has a trick or two up his sleeve for dealing with hauntings. And he has definite rebound-guy potential—if only he would stop inviting her to church.
The virginity vow Emmett “the lawn guy” Herald took when he was seventeen has become legendary in Dover, Vermont. Ten years later, everyone is waiting to see if he’ll blow a decade of “waiting for marriage” now that he’s dating the new girl from the big city. Even Emmett thinks he has met his match in the vivacious Boston beauty. In fact, he’s starting to think virginity may be overrated.
A spark of attraction ignites between Jade and Emmett, and quickly grows into a roaring inferno. But with a demon fanning the flames, attraction has never been so perilous.
Jade’s Spirit is scheduled for release on August 1. I’ve put in in my TBR list on Goodreads. To find out more about the talented mistress of wonderful cross-genre delights, Jessi Gage, here are some helpful links:
