Publication date: August 22nd 2013
Genre: Adult Romantic Thriller
She’s tried just about every occupation she can think of and will be digging out of student debt for a very long time, but has nothing to show for it. Her everyday routine feels like a prison. And her marriage? Well, let’s just say it’s been a little one-sided lately and the money she threw down on the toys from Lover’s Erotic Store was well worth it and then some.
Jenny decides her next big step is to become a romance writer. Romance books are flying off the virtual shelves, after all. This will be her big break, her escape from the prison, and a way to freedom. Self-publishing is all the rage these days. She’ll be a best seller in no time.
When Jenny makes friends with a woman named Cassandra from the gym, she instantly decides that her new friend will make a perfect main character in her upcoming book. After the first chapter, real life begins to resemble the fiction she’s writing. Her friendship blossoms, sex with her husband turns into a daily feast, and her job gets more interesting with each chapter written.
Out of the blue, a person who is a close friend with her husband and who is dating Cassandra disappears. As the mystery behind the missing person unfolds, Jenny wonders if she might be responsible for his possible death. And if she is, what will be the consequence? What has this writing business gotten her into?

5 of 5 Jenny's Blue Velvet
Jenny's Blue Velvet is a dark and funny read. I have never laughed so much. I also never though WTF so many times either because lord Angela has written a dark mysterious story about a woman Jenny who has a crazy life. She is stuck in this crazy life with her husband where she is in a dry spell with him and has to resort to toys to pleasure herself. If this is not enough crap to being going through she has no idea what kind of work to do. She has tried so many and none of them seem to keep her attention long enough. She knows she better chose something soon because she has to pay back all those loans she took out for college.
One day while working out at the gym Jenny makes a new friend and she decides that she is going to be a self published author and write a book and her new friend is going to be the main character. Once Jenny starts writing this book she starts to experience new things and in a good way. Suddenly her husband can't get enough of her and she is finally getting the needed attention she deserves. But on the flip side she sees that her writing is causing something weird to happen and soon her new friends boyfriend disappears. Jenny is soon wondering if her writing had something to do with the guys mysterious disappearance.
What is Jenny to do? Should she stop writing or should she keep on with her story? This is one funny and mysterious story that when things unfold you are going to have a WTF moment because you will never see it coming!
I’ve lived in the state of Washington my entire life. Sure, it rains a lot, but that’s what makes it so beautiful here. I’d like to say it’s the most beautiful place on the planet, but I have yet to travel the world. Someday I’ll know for sure.
I write fiction involving young people. Mainstream publishing would label my writing as YA or middle grade. Since I’m an indie author, I can skip over the labels and tell you that each one of my stories is unique, can be read and enjoyed by all ages, and almost always has a young person as the protagonist. Authors write what they know and I don’t know old yet. I may someday write about older people, but that’s so far in the future that I can’t see it yet.
