Top 5 Things I Need To Write
Hi everyone! Crystal from Jessie Lane here. I’m stopping by I Read Indie today to talk about the five things I NEED before I sit down and start writing. Are you ready for this? You’re going to think I’m the most boring person in the world by the time I’m done, lol. And a huge THANK YOU to Mandy for having me on here today! You’re the best MANDY! Here we go:

1.      Peace and quiet. One might think that would be a simple thing to obtain, but in my case not so much. I have two little girls whom I adore, but they’re noisy little stinkers. So I have to make sure that they’re content with their toys/computer/movie/book or whatever the heck it is I’m trying to distract them with before I start. Otherwise I hear “Mom” every five minutes until I give up on writing for the moment.

2.      A cup of hot tea. A little while ago I had to give up coffee. Blasphemy, I know. But unfortunately I was having stomach acidicy issues so the coffee had to go. I won’t lie, it was hard as hell. I MISS MY COFFEE! Luckily, I stumbled upon this wonderful substance called Irish Breakfast Tea. It is my new nectar of the gods and I wish I could hook it up to an IV and roll it around with me all day. Now, there’s always a cup in my hand when I sit down at my desk.

3.      Post It Notes. I am the Post It Note Queen. I have not one, but TWO, big corkboards dedicated to my push pins and post it notes. Any stray thought or dialogue that isn’t quite right for whatever scene I’m writing at the moment goes on those boards. So, the day that I run out of post it notes, peeps will probably hear me wail in horror across the country. Seriously.

4.      Music. I’m inspired by many things in life, but music is by far my biggest inspiration. It’s almost always playing in the background while I’m writing. It’s not just any old Sirius/XM station or Youtube channel though. Oh no, I look for whatever song I feel fits that chapter and I’ll play it on repeat. *rubs hands together in evil glee* I drive my husband nuts doing that. MUAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHA!

5.      Whisky. I’m sure some people just did a double take. Or they’re going “Say whaaaat?” Yeah, sometimes if I’m writing at night after my girls go to bed I need whisky. It helps with writer’s blocks, funny scenes or difficult/emotional exhausting scenes. It doesn’t happen often, but when it does, I have to admit that some of my favorite scenes have been fueled by Jack Daniels and coke. Don’t worry, I always re-read those sections two and three times to make sure I don’t get to crazy.
So, now you know what I need before I start writing. I told you I was insanely boring. I’m sure you all were hoping for something outrageous. For instance a man servant in a loincloth to rub my hands and feet? A massaging desk chair? An endless supply of Mr. Goodbars? Perhaps for aliens to kidnap me and implant a creative genius chip in my brain?


Wait… all of those ideas sounded really good… except for the aliens. Sorry about that, I’ve been reading a lot of Science Fiction Romance lately. Anyways, did anyone have any questions? Maybe ideas of what you might think I should have before I sit down to write?







Title: Walk On The Striped Side 

Series: Big Bad Bite #2

Author: Jessie Lane 

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Publication: February 25th 2014 by Jessie Lane




Does he have his claws in her for good? Or is she just yanking his tail?

Elena Demos’s life has been turned upside down. Her mother has passed away, leaving Elena and her two half-sisters to deal with their mother’s will and the crazy stipulations it contains. For the three sisters to inherit the substantial amount of money left behind, they have to go to work with two aunts they’ve never met, in the family business they’ve known nothing about, Amazons Inc. If that isn’t bad enough, she runs into the man who once broke her heart, and it’s only their first day on the job.

Gage Ivanov is a stupid beast. He let the woman who should be his mate go because she couldn't be told of his Other identity. Now, Elena’s back, but she refuses to give in to his demands for her to be his mate. The timing for all of this couldn’t be worse, either, because Gage and his circle of friends are trying to subdue a rogue pack of wolf shifters in Germany who threaten to out the Others to the world of humans. Will he be able to juggle the oncoming conflict and win back his mate?

Claws, love bites and handcuffs - OH MY!

Crystal and Melissa often live half their lives with their heads in the clouds dreaming of alpha military hunks, werewolves and kick ass heroines crazy enough to chase after creatures that they unquestionably should know better than to chase.
Their first YA novel, The Burning Star, was released in May 2012. Big Bad Bite is their second novel, but their first adult paranormal romance. They are now working on their next two novels, Walk On The Striped Side and Secret Maneuvers. With these projects underway, they are looking forward to showing the rest of the world their crazy stories, heroes and heroines that often plague their minds until written, and hope you will join them on their journey!
