Cover Reveal-Reboot by Pippa Jay

“Welcome to immortality in utopia!”

From the moment Damien signed up for a perfect life with ReGen Inc., he didn’t ask any questions. He didn’t want or need to know. But after he’s rebooted this time, there are gaps in his memory he can’t ignore, and people he no longer recognizes are accusing him of betrayal. When someone dies, he’s determined to go looking for answers…but sometimes it really is better to forget.
Someone pounded on his door. Damien jerked out of bed, heart hammering. Had ReGen realized their mistake? Were they coming to wipe the rest of his memories?
Reality swept over him as the last of the fog of sleep faded. He wasn’t a hermit. People often came to visit, though they weren’t usually so loud about it.
He pushed off the bed, a slight stiffness making his movements awkward. He clipped the doorframe on his way out and cursed at the spike of pain in his shoulder. Clumsy! The last thing he wanted to do was damage this new body so soon after a reboot.
“Hold on!” he yelled at the unknown visitor hell-bent on punching a hole through his front door.
He was still clothed from last night, but he paused in front of his mirror to drag his fingers through the tufts of his dark hair. “Yes, all right. I’m coming!” He tugged his shirt straight. “Open.”
A dark-haired woman stumbled through the door and fell against him. “Damien!”
His arms circled her by instinct, but the impact sent him staggering back a step or two. “Whoa!”
She gazed up at him, her hazel eyes red-rimmed as if from crying, and her pretty face screwed into wrinkles. “I was so worried. When you didn’t come over last night…”
“Last night? Come where?” Her body pressed into his was causing all kinds of interesting reactions, but confusion overrode them. “Who are you?”
“Who?” Her eyes widened, and she jerked out of his embrace. “What’s wrong with you?”
Fear swamped him again, a cold that chilled him to the bone. “Diagnostics says I’m fine.”
“Diagnostics?” She backed away, as if he’d morphed into the worst kind of monster, then grabbed his right hand. Damien flinched as she rubbed her thumb hard over the back of his hand. Over the place where his scar had been. “Oh…” She dropped his hand, her head still bowed. “Oh, Damien.”
Her gaze knifed through him, accusing. “You’ve been rebooted.”

A stay-at-home mum of three who spent twelve years working as an Analytical Chemist in a Metals and Minerals laboratory, Pippa Jay bases her stories on a lifetime addiction to science-fiction books and films. Somewhere along the line a touch of romance crept into her work and refused to leave. In between torturing her plethora of characters, she spends the odd free moments trying to learn guitar, indulging in freestyle street dance and drinking high-caffeine coffee. Although happily settled in historical Colchester in the UK with her husband of 20 years, she continues to roam the rest of the Universe in her head.

Author Friends

“Friendship is born at that moment when one man says to another: "What! You too? I thought that no one but myself . . ."”
C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves    

When I first started out in this business I was warned that publishing was rough and that I shouldn't expect to make friends in it. I believed this to be true and, consequently, those were, for the most part--with some very distinct exceptions--exactly what I got. Even people who should have been on my side or rooting for me didn't particularly wish me well.

After one very public feud exploded, I moved on thinking I would have to protect myself endlessly from the writers around me.  But that isn't what happened. Instead, and I've been dwelling on this a lot lately, I ended up making some very close friends. 

A group of women who cared about exactly what I cared about, who spent their days doing exactly what I did and who cared what happened to my career. 

My suggestion to anyone thinking of going into publishing would be this: surround yourself with positive friends in the business who will tell you the truth. You'll be happy every day if you do.

Thank you to my friends. I couldn't do a minute of it without you.

Alpha's Strength Has Released!

I am so happy to announce the release of Alpha's Strength. 

This is the first novel in my Fallen Alphas series and it is the story of Cyrus, who if you read Alpha Rising in the Ever After anthology then you have already met him as he showed up in Travis and Lilliana's story, and his mate Betsy, who is Lilliana's twin sister.

Cyrus runs Manhattan with an iron fist. He will keep his pack safe whether they want him to or not. But something is missing and lately he is more on edge than ever. With his pack at risk and the Alphas of Philadelphia and Boston breathing down his neck, he doesn’t anticipate the arrival of his true mate, particularly when he finds her in a coffee house across the street from his office building. She’s not only identical to the mate of the alpha of Philadelphia but has no idea that werewolves even exist, let alone that she’s one herself. Cyrus is determined to protect her while he solves the mystery of her life.

Betsy, strong, smart, and determined, has been suffering for months trying to keep her parents alive. She doesn’t know where the werewolf who followed her home came from and she doesn’t care, he just needs to leave her alone. But as Betsy gets to know Cyrus, she will discover things about herself that she’d never believed possible. She’s the only one who can help Cyrus keep his pack safe—especially when the true believers are out to destroy them.

I hope you'll check this out. I've got lots of plans for the Fallen Alphas~

Hi everyone

Sorry that I haven't been around to blog very much lately.  But, I spent most of February travelling from one place to another. It was a great month but an exhausting one and I'm glad to be home until I go to the Fated Desires' writers retreat in April.  March will, hopefully, be quiet and productive for me.

I started the month off by taking my kids to see their grandparents in Florida. I always love taking those trips and so do the kids. It was the perfect way to spend the time they had off from school. We were in the pool almost the entire time. 

I came back and went on to do something I don't get to do enough of, which was that I went to Napa with my husband. The kids very wonderful aunt came and watched them while I went to wine country and had a lot of romantic days as just husband and wife. It was a real treat for us.

And then after that I came back and spent five days in San Antonio at the fabulous Wild Wicked Weekend.  If you're looking for a writer/reader conference to go to I can highly recommend this one.  Its small enough that you get to know everyone there. Its my favorite writers' conference. 

I hope you're all doing well and I'm writing away.  Last month, my book February Lover released and this month Alpha's Strength comes out. 

Hope you're all doing well!
