Why I wrote Naked Sushi by Jina Bacarr

October 11, 2013 by in category Archives tagged as , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I’ve always been a geek.

I got my first computer when the screen was black and the print orange. I was a member of an infamous BBS (bulletin board system) back in the day when I wrote a column for a computer magazine called “Sweet Savage Byte.”

I did podcasts on a video camera with a floppy disk that only allowed you to record a minute of time. I remember setting this up in a Borders bookstore in Hollywood. Yes, those were the days…

I’m also a huge James Bond fan.

And I love Covert Affairs with the fab heroine Annie Walker.

You put all that together and you get…Naked Sushi.

It’s also a story about facing the fear of rejection. We’ve all been there. Often that’s the reason we don’t finish a manuscript because we’re afraid of rejection. In Naked Sushi, Pepper O’Malley realizes with the help of the hero that’s what is keeping her from achieving her dream of becoming a spy. She poses as a naked sushi model to get the goods on her sleazy ex-boss with the hero FBI hottie getting in on the action in this excerpt from Naked Sushi.

Six days days until Naked Sushi, my Cosmo Red-Hot Read from Harlequin, is released! So here are two videos with an excerpt from my story. What’s wild is that we’ve gone from 60 seconds max in the early days of video to 6 seconds on Vine and 16 seconds on Instagram


What’s fun is that the Vine video loops forever and you can take your time reading the sexy snippet. I found some hot music that adds to the fun atmos. 

The Instagram video is longer, but it doesn’t loop.

 I enjoy experimenting with new ways to present excerpts and since Pepper is a video programmer at a computer game company, this is a fun way to showcase her story.

I had a blast writing this story and I’m thrilled that here is an opportunity for all girls who consider themselves tech-heads to show they’re fun, fearless females!

Pepper hits the digital stores on October 15th.


PS — the silky border that I used as a frame around my videos is a remnant from ornate kimono designed by a designer I met when I was taking kimono lessons from a Japanese sensei

Cosmo Red-Hot Read from Harlequin: NAKED SUSHI gets a Cover

August 11, 2013 by in category Archives tagged as , , , , , , , , ,

I’m a Cosmo Cover Girl!!

Well, not really, but I feel like one. The glam cover shoot, the publicity, the magazine ads, and the video:

I love this video — I especially love the Cosmo model with the glasses. Did you see her? When I saw her I said, “That’s my Pepper!!” (She reminds me of my heroine in NAKED SUSHI–she appears about 20 seconds into the video.) She’s a fun, fearless female as befits the Cosmo brand touted in their magazine.

I may not be a Cosmo Cover Girl, but I am a Fun, Fearless Female.

I never would have gotten this far if I wasn’t.

How ’bout you? Are you a fun, fearless female?

A Delicious Mistake

One day I’m getting canned from my job as a computer programmer for having wild copy-room sex with a guy I thought was the new game designer. The next, I’m crashing my ex-boss’s business lunch in a creative attempt to get my job back and men are eating sushi off my naked body!

That’s when I realize a) My ex-boss is a hiding corporate secrets b) Hot copy-room guy is an undercover FBI agent c) I would make a kick-ass spy!

Then Special Agent Hottie brings out his cuffs, and things get really interesting…
