I'm pleased to spread the word. One of my critique partners on WRITESPOT, jj Keller, is a CAPA Finalist for her book, THE WATCHER. The Romance Studio will be announcing the fourth annual Cupid and Psyche Awards on Valentine's Day 2008!

What are the CAPA's? They are awards given by The Romance Studio for excellence in romantic and erotic fiction. Categories include inspirational, contemporary, fantasy, historical, mainstream, paranormal, romantic suspense, erotic contemporary, erotic fantasy, erotic historical, erotic novella, erotic paranormal, erotic anthology, BDSM, and the Ariana Overton Award for Best Cover Art or the Ari.

Between THE WATCHER and BELIEVE, jj Keller is getting rave reviews from Romance Junkies, Fallen Angels, and Just Erotic Reviews! Way to go, jj!!

THE WATCHER is the first book in a series sold to Cobblestone Press. Here's the blurb:

Jon has been a loving, attentive fiancĂ©, but his angry outbursts of late have made her question their union. On a whim, she visits a fortune teller. She learns the voice she’s hearing is not her imagination, he’s real and he’s there to warn her of danger. Emily questions whether she should marry Jon. How can she truly love Jon when she’s captivated by a voice?

Netzach is Emily’s Watcher. He works with her guardian angel to keep her safe and at present, she’s in danger. Jon Hart isn’t the man he pretends to be. He is evil. Netzach can’t bear to see Emily marry such a man. This isn’t the first time these three souls have interacted. Centuries before, Netzach lost Emily to this vile man. Netzach can’t bear to watch his soul mate fall prey to him once again and he asks the Powers that be to save her.

The next novel is BELIEVE. Here is the blurb:

One member in every generation of Mikhail Romanasky’s family is always named Mikhail. Additionally, one member in every generation of receives the gift of future sight. This time around, Mikhail received the privilege of both and she is developing further gifts she wished she didn’t have. She’s having precognitive visions of children kidnapped by a man so evil, so vile it makes her skin crawl. Mikhail takes her information to the police to save a local child.

Detective Jensen Palmer couldn’t help suspecting that a gypsy who makes her living telling fortunes must be using him to further some confidence scheme. Mikhail knows that to save Jensen’s beloved five year old nephew, Jensen will have to learn to believe.

The last in the series is MELODY'S SONG, a future release. Here's a taste:

Melody Haney has an angelic singing voice, but denies the gift after her son dies. Out of obligation, when she is asked to sing to hospitalized children she agrees. Accused of stealing drugs from the oncology unit, she pushes away the one man who would stand by her.

Dr. Devon Siegal, pediatric oncologist, doesn’t believe in coincidences. Even when faced with evidence that could damn her, he continues to believe in Melody’s innocence. He has faith she will tell him everything and love will prevail.

What's next for jj? She just submitted THE TAROT CARD to The Wild Rose Press, and will be doing a series of guest blogging on TRS! For more information on jj Keller, you can go to or check out her blog, jj's Spice and Humor at
