How Mercy Street on PBS reminded me why I write romance by Jina Bacarr

It’s been a rough week. Make that year. A lot of stuff going on in my life that sometimes makes me crumble in a heap and ask myself why I keep going. But I do. Because I like I what I do. Writing. Some days I love it, other days . . . well, you […]

Civil War Letters: I’ll be reading letters from Love Me Forever at Lady Jane’s OC Salon by Jina Bacarr

When was the last time you wrote a letter? No, not email! Or text. Or a bunch of acronyms that no one can figure out without a dictionary. I mean, put pen to paper and wrote out the words, one by one. Hmm! I didn’t hear anything. You’re not alone. Unfortunately, the practice of letter […]

Shades of the Blue and the Gray: Love Me Forever is on sale for $1.99 by Jina Bacarr

  I love film noir. The tough heroes with the beautiful, wisecracking dolls glammed up with dark lipstick and tight suits. Not to mention high-heeled pumps that showed off a great pair of legs.
