New price drop (and other fun catch-up items)

Hello everyone!

I wanted to make sure you knew about a sale my publisher is running: for a limited time, IT HAPPENED ONE WEDDING is only $1.99 at all ebook retailers.  The book is a reader favorite, so if you haven’t read it already, this is a great time to scoop up a copy.

It Happened One Wedding by Julie James


And if one sale isn’t enough, how about two? My most recent book, SUDDENLY ONE SUMMER, is also only $1.99 in ebook.  I’m not sure how long this price drop will last, so I would get it while it’s hot.

Suddenly One Summer by Julie James


In other news… did you hear that I have a new book, THE THING ABOUT LOVE, coming out in April?

You can read more about the book here.  I also plan to post an excerpt next month, so be on the lookout for that!



Today’s the day! SUDDENLY ONE SUMMER is now available! “A hot, sexy read packed full of humor… If you need a great read to throw in your beach bag, make sure Suddenly One Summer is one of your choices.” —USA Today


After a break-in at her town home, divorce lawyer Victoria Slade rents, for the summer, a loft condo next door to investigative journalist Ford Dixon. As neighbors, they don’t get off to a good start (expect lots of sparks!), but they reluctantly agree to work together when Victoria takes on Ford’s sister as client. As they begin spending more time together, they find it harder and harder to fight the intense attraction between them, until—

—Well, I wouldn’t want to spoil it for you, would I? 😉

SUDDENLY ONE SUMMER will be out tomorrow! (And a sneak-peak)

SUDDENLY ONE SUMMER will be out tomorrow! To tide you over, how about a little sneak-peek? It’s not a spoiler-y excerpt, but I know that some of you don’t like to read anything at all before getting the book, so if that’s the case, avert your eyes now…
“You don’t believe in marriage?” Ford asked.
“I don’t think every marriage is doomed. But these days, you’ve got as good of odds as a coin flip of finding one that will go the distance. And in the eight years I’ve been a divorce lawyer, I haven’t seen much that inspires me to try my luck.”
Ford was giving her that “amused” look again.
“What?” Victoria asked in exasperation.
“I’ve just never had a woman say that before on a date.”
“It’s a fake date. And welcome to 2015.”
He laughed. “You’re just so . . .” He trailed off, his expression a mixture of frustration and something else she couldn’t read.
“Beguiling? Irresistible?” she offered.
“Challenging.” His eyes held hers across the table.
The moment was interrupted when the waitress dropped by to take their orders. Starving after her first foray into undercover work—and a darn good performance, if she did say so herself—Victoria ordered the hand-cut fries with dips as an appetizer along with her brisket sandwich.
“Make that two,” Ford told the waitress, then picked up right where their conversation had left off. “Okay, so marriage doesn’t inspire you. What about kids? Is that something you’re considering down the road?”
“Maybe.” Victoria shrugged. “I don’t know how I’ll feel in a couple years, so I’ve taken precautionary measures to keep that option open.”
“‘Precautionary measures’? What does that mean?” He took a sip of his beer.
“I had my eggs frozen when I was thirty.”
He paused, mid-sip, and then set his beer bottle back down. “That’s . . . very forward-thinking.”
“Maybe it seems that way now, but I predict that in five, ten years, it’s going be an option a lot more women consider.” She leaned in. “Let’s be honest, it’s an advantage you men have in the dating game, a chip you wield over us—our biological clocks. How many times have I seen a woman, like me, single in her thirties, successful in her career, but she’s in a near panic when it comes to her personal life because she wants kids and she’s done the math: she has to meet a guy by the time she’s this age, so she can get married by this age, and pregnant a year later. I say the hell with that. I will decide if and when I’m ready to have kids. I’m not about to cede control over that to Fate, waiting around for Mr. Right to show up on my doorstep.” She paused, catching that.
Metaphorically speaking, of course.
“Wow.” Ford rested his arms on the table. “I can’t decide if I’m frightened by you on behalf of the entire male gender, or really fucking turned on.”
She flashed him a grin. “All part of my allure.”

Good news/bad news (and pre-order price drops!)

So, we have a good news/bad news situation here. The bad news is, yesterday’s giveaway was the last one for early copies of SUDDENLY ONE SUMMER. But the good news is, the book comes out on Tuesday, so everyone can read it then, anyway! 🙂

Amazon still has that reduced priced for pre-order: only $5.99 in Kindle and $6.47 in paperback. And, just today, Nook and Google Play dropped the ebook price to $5.99, as well. (No price drop yet on iTunes, but I’ll update if that changes.)

Also, I just posted a new excerpt (two chapters) on my website, for those of you looking for a sneak peek.

Only four days until release day! Happy Friday, everyone!
