About Jodi Payne

JeRoWriMo Writing Challenge!

JeRoWriMo is the New Jersey Romance Writers February writing challenge. An answer to NaNoWriMo, it’s more flexible, has a shorter word count, nonjudgemental, and set everyone up for success in a friendly and fun way.

This year I’m writing a fun novella for a shared-world project that will be out next winter. Yes, it’s a long away off, but these things take time to set up and market well. Plus I need time for editing, proofing…the whole thing.

I’ll check in occasionally to tell you how it’s going, or, you can join my Facebook Group where I’ll be posting about this fun journey more often, with snippets of what I write each day and weekly word counts! Join my group, Jodi’s Java Joint, HERE: https://www.facebook.com/groups/jodisjavajoint .

Rainbow Snippets 10/24

This one is from Cowboy Protection, a new M/M holiday romance by me and BA Tortuga. It’s an opposites attract, enemies to lovers book with a little heat and a little Christmas magic.


Sid rolled his eyes. “Are you okay, Gus?”

“Dude, he looked like he was ready to–you really shouldn’t get into it with him.”

“Yeah, people have told me that. Thing is, I have to. He wants respect from me, then I need it from him. If you back down from an argument like that, there’s no getting back what you’ve lost.”

Gus looked horrified. “But what if he’d hit you?”

“I’m pretty sure he’d have knocked my ass out.” But taking a punch was better than looking scared, even if he ended up on the floor.

Quinn is sent in to clean up and finds one very hot mess.

Randall Quinn has been a cleaner for the mob for over ten years, but a particularly violent scene sets him to drinking alone and contemplating his options.

At thirty-nine, it’s possible this is just a mid-life crisis so he tries buying himself a flashy car to satisfy the itch, and agrees to take another job to test his conviction.

He’s expecting easy money when he arrives at a seedy motel to clean up after what the Boss told him was supposed to have been a simple execution. But what he discovers in that motel room is anything but simple, and from that moment on, every decision makes life more and more complicated.

FREE M/M Romance Books!

Hey all! Go grab your copy of my novella, Roadside Assistance, just one of over a hundred FREE M/M romance books available exclusively through this giveaway!

Single dad Drew Sadler has had a bad day at work, he’s in the doghouse with his son Evan again, and to top it all off, his car just broke down in the school parking lot. Now, he has to figure out how to pay for a tow and car repairs too.

This isn’t Nick MacPherson’s first call in the rain, and the tow-truck driver doesn’t have good news for Drew. Nick can tell the soft-spoken, overwhelmed father is at his wit’s end and he wants to help, but he also finds himself drawn to Drew. Evan warms up to Nick right away, but Drew obviously has bigger issues on his mind. A late-night emergency isn’t the right time to ask Drew out for a drink, so Nick finds a subtle way to put the ball in Drew’s court.

The spark between them is undeniable, but are Nick and Drew headed for another kind of breakdown?
