I’ll be at the Charles M Schulz Museum and Research Center Saturday, April 29th as part of their author series. I won’t be reading comics, I’ll be reading from the Jane’s World prose novel published last year by Bold Strokes Books. The expanded story of Jane and her pals is full of humor and at times, sexy exploits.
Please join me for the reading. I’ll also be signing novels written under my pen name, Missouri Vaun.
Where: Charles M Schulz Museum and Research Center, 2301 Hardies Ln, Santa Rosa, California 95403
When: Saturday, April 29 at 2 PM – 4 PM
Why: Because everyone needs a little humor in their life!
Jane’s World and the Case of the Mail Order Bride
Jane’s PayBuddy account gets hacked and she inadvertently purchases a mail-order bride from Transnistria. Jane doesn’t realize she’s about to embark on her honeymoon until the bride, Natasha, shows up on her doorstep, with luggage. Jane’s roommate, Ethan, can’t stop drooling over sexy Natasha. Luckily, after the demise of the local newspaper, Jane has just taken a job at the public library where she has lots of coworkers smarter than she is that she enlists to help her figure a way out of this accidental marriage. Natasha believes if she can get Jane to consummate their marriage that, according to California’s new state rulings on same-sex marriage, she’ll be a US citizen. But is that all she’s really after? Or does true romance begin to bloom between Natasha and Jane? If Jane’s part-time girlfriend, Dorothy, has anything to say about it, the answer is no!
The trouble with exes is that you never know when they’re going to show up, or with whom. And even if you’re sure that breaking up was the right thing to do (which Dorothy isn’t so sure about) you definitely don’t want to see them on a date with someone you think is hotter than you are. And not at the same restaurant! Especially when all you wanted was a fun dinner out with a friend who promised to cheer you up. There aren’t enough margaritas in the world for this sort of scenario… as Dorothy is about to find out.

New Jane’s World comic are appearing every Monday, Wednesday and Friday on the newly redesigned GoComics site!
For those of you who read the Jane’s World prose novel that came out in June of 2016 (came out… pun intended), you may notice some similarities in the current story line running on GoComics. Yes, Jane did accidentally purchase a mail order bride in the novel, but in the comics form of this narrative, things won’t happen exactly the same way. Some of you might wonder why. Well, because stories don’t translate exactly the same way in different mediums. It just doesn’t work… and anyway, certain changes (and embellishments ) will be funnier for the comic.
Cheers and happy belated 2017!
Nothing says “Ho, Ho, Ho” quite like a bad Christmas sweater 🙂

Happy 4th! In honor of a little extra lounge time this weekend I thought I’d share an excerpt from the new Jane’s World novel, read by yours truly and uploaded on the Lesbian Review podcast channel:
Hello from Jane’s World! Just a quick update to let you know that the new Jane’s World novel is now available everywhere books are sold. That means your local book shop can carry it (and may already have it) and also Amazon. And of course directly from the publisher at BoldStrokesBooks.com
Happy reading 🙂
The release date for the Jane’s World novel is June 1st! There are several ways to get the book. The best way is to pre-order from the publisher and it’s available now. (Support indie publishers any chance you get!)
