What’s up?

I haven’t been available lately, I’ve been hiding in my writing cave (dungeon?) working my latest Romance Suspense. This story is to be published with a group of talented authors for a box set.

It’s a 30,000 word novella, yet it’s the hardest manuscript I’ve put together to date. It was due last weekend, but I started over many times. Finally, I figured out the protagonist conflict the Monday before.

Needless to say I didn’t make the deadline. Since, I’ve worked diligently to turn over to my fellow authors for critiques only to decide yesterday I didn’t like the ending or the title. The finale is redone, though it needs work and I’m satisfied with A Lethal Affair as the name. The book is now in the hands of the experts. We shall see. The set is projected to be released around February or March.

My editor sent me edits for Toxic a full length romance/suspense. Other than a read through, not much has been done, although I have ideas. Completing the edits are my task this week. I am especially excited about this publication. It was the first book I wrote, I started it ten years ago. It’s been revised at least a hundred times. I still have the original. It’s baaaad. Stay tuned.

And now for my EXTRA exciting news. My second book, Tomorrow Doesn’t Matter Tonight is set for release on NOVEMBER 19th. It’s available at Amazon.com, BarnsandNoble.com and The Wild Rose Press.

Hope you’ll pick up a copy and let me know what you think!

Blurb:

Within twenty-four hours, Katie Drapier has lost her job, become a murder suspect in her former boss’s death, and run into her school girl crush, Jack Pharrell, who stomped on her heart fourteen years ago.

Jackson Pharrell is down on his luck. Nothing seems to be going his way. Things go from bad to worse when he discovers a dead body, who turns out to be the former boss of an old friend’s pesky sister. Plagued with guilt from the past, Jack feels obliged to help her find the murderer while ducking a murder charge, even if it means breaking the law. Together, they dodge police, the real killer, and the growing heat between them. The plan is to rise above their woes and get on with their lives. Falling in love is not an option.

About Debra Jupe

Hi, I’m Debra and I write romantic/suspense novels, with a bit of steam and a lot of fun. Creating stories is my passion. My favorite days are when I can tune out the universe, huddle over my laptop, and let my imagination go wild. More of my loves My kids-I am the proud mom of two. Son, Stephen and daughter, Hannah. I’m also a proud mother-in-law to Astrid and Ryan. I’m a huge animal lover and am “mom” to a houseful of adopted fur-babies. Animals know, when they show up at my house, they have a forever home. Texas-I’m a lifetime Texan. Born in Waco, I grew up in a small town, south of the city. In my early 20’s, I left and lived in different areas within the state. Twenty-eight years later, I happily returned home. I hope to have one more move in me. My dream is to live by the ocean, sit on the deck with a glass of wine and write. Bucket List accomplishments-In my 40’s, I did something I’d always wanted to do, which was return to school and further my education. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in 2011. My day job is working in the education system, teaching special needs children. Inspiration-Growing plants in my flower beds, painting, photography, travel (love the beach), I was born to shop-now if I just had the money, and I can be easily bribed with a tasty meal of Mexican food. Oh yeah, and chocolate. Lots of chocolate. Writing-I received my first publishing contract with The Wild Rose Press in 2013, and my initial release debuted in September the same year. I’m an active member of the Central Texas Romance Writers of America Chapter, and I serve as secretary of the group.
