Since 2006, J. Rocci has published several GLBT romance stories, ranging from contemporary to steampunk to fantasy.
A voracious reader from a young age, Rocci currently lives near Washington D.C. with the love of her life and their furry children. She often indulges the whims of her best friend -- and Muse -- when writing, and loves giving her characters happy endings.
The Nexus of Social Media will connect you to all the other places on the web that Jay has burrowed into.
If you're reading this as a
long-awaited update, thanks for sticking with me! If you're a new
hooligan just discovering my work for the first time, welcome!
So you may have noticed a few things
over the last year: I haven't produced anything new; I've been mostly
active on Tumblr, and that's been reblogging hockey and various
fandom related content; All Romance eBooks and Torquere Press closed
at the end of December; and I deleted my LiveJournal.
I have to admit, Torquere closing has
left me very much saddened by how things turned out. I started
reading Torquere ebooks in 2004, had my first novellette published by
Torquere in 2006, and helped with the annual charity drive for a
couple years. While life has left me less and less time to write
since 2012, I still tried to keep up with my favorite Torquere
authors and those who had moved on from Torquere to other publishers.
When Torquere changed owners, I pretty much resolved to find a new
publishing house, but to see it end badly is heartbreaking. Others
have written about the situation, and I'm not going into it here, but
I recommend a quick Google search if this is news to you.
This confluence of 2016 events, along
with finishing my graduate program, means that I'm hard-core revising
my website and social media platforms, reviewing all my previous
work, planning my future publication goals, and generally re-engaging
with my entire process of being a writer. What this also means is
that I will finally start using all that image editing software I
bought in a fit of emboldened hope last year and failed to use.
Additionally, I resolve not to
over-promise, but to also be more consistent with my updates. Expect
more news as I move forward with the changes to my sites and my quest
for new publishing opportunities.
May 2017 be better than 2016!
