Happy 4th of July!
I couldn’t be more excited! Sebastian York and Charlotte Penfield did an amazing job with Tangled & Twisted – and I absolutely can’t wait to listen to some of my favorite lines from these stories.
“My favorite dress of yours will always be…the one on the floor.”
– Drew, Holy Frigging Matrimony
“I just…I love you, you know.”
“I’m a loveable guy.”
“And slappable – definitely a slappable guy.”
– Drew & Kate, Holy Frigging Matrimony
“Why should I have to ask you? You’re a grown man – you should just know!”
And there it is, kiddies. The Famous Female Mind Fuck.
That’s short for: If you can’t read their minds? You’re fucked.
– Drew & Kate The Honeymoon’s Over
More information and release dates will be coming soon!
Thank you to my lovely readers and listeners for adoring these characters as much as I do
What made you decide to impart your wisdom about men to female readers?
Men and women are hard-wired differently. And I just thought the world would be a better place if women could understand where guys are coming from. Our thoughts, perspective – how our minds work.
We don’t mean to be insensitive assholes, any more than women mean to be overly emotional, catty drama queens. But lots of times – we just can’t help ourselves.
What five words would you use to describe yourself?
I’ll do it in three: Every Woman’s Dream.
Even the ones that claim not to like me? In reality, they do – they just don’t want to admit it.
But, if you really need five words: Devastatingly handsome (we’ll count that as one), loyal, competitive, persuasive, brilliant.
If your life would be turned into a movie, what actor would be cast as you?
That’s a tough one. Most actors today are so…mediocre. To really give ticket goers their money’s worth, someone would have to raise one of the greats from the dead. Someone like Paul Newman or Clark Gable in their younger years. Maybe James Dean…you get the idea.
What’s the best pickup line you’ve ever used? The worst?
(smirks) Most of the time, words weren’t needed. After a wink, a smile – speaking wasn’t high on the list of things a chick was looking for me to do with my mouth.
In those rare instances when a little effort was needed, this line never failed:
“Let’s get out of here, so I can kiss you passionately on the lips. And then – eventually – I’ll move up to your belly button.”
Although I wouldn’t say it’s the worst, this one was a hit or miss:
“Nice dress. Wanna fuck?”
Some women can’t handle the direct approach.
If you could plot the perfect revenge, what would it be?
Revenge isn’t that complicated. If you know what someone likes, values, loves more than anything else in the whole world. The perfect revenge would be to take it away from them. Make sure it’s irretrievable. Simple really.
If you were given five unsupervised minutes with Billy Warren, how would you take advantage of your time?
I’m still holding out hope that one day I’ll actually get those five minutes, so I’m going to keep those plans secret – don’t want incriminate myself. Although…if you’ve seen Fight Club…there are scenes in that movie that come pretty fucking close to my aspirations for Douche Bag.

This may seem like a long time to wait, BUT, I promise it will be worth it. Because just two short months after Tangled’sre-launch, in March 2014, TWISTED(Tangled Series Book #2) will be published in ebook and paperback. TWISTED picks up two years after Tangled’s end, and is told from Kate’s POV.
Then, in May 2014 TAMED (Tangled Series Book #3) will be released in ebook and paperback! TAMED goes back in time to the Tangleddays. But this time around, it’s not Drew dishing out the advice and opinions – it’s his best friend Matthew, who of course is dealing with Dee Dee.

I know many of you are anxious for ne
ws about Book #2. At the moment, I can officially announce there WILL definitely be a Tangled Book #2. The finer details are still being worked out, however, so I’m unable to release more information until everything is finalized.
They’re the reason we keep going back to the gym for those punishing workouts. They’re the reason even the most uptight man on earth can fall asleep after a good lay. They are also responsible for a little phenomenon commonly referred to as The Honeymoon Period.
Men love Star Wars. Not in the same way women love Titanic or The Notebook—I cry every time I watch them. But Star Wars is different for men. It’s not just entertainment.
They believe in it.
It’s their handbook, their Bible. Apparently, all the secrets of life can be found in George Lucas’s films. At least in the first three. According to Drew, the last three “suck ass.”
We’re watching The Empire Strikes Back now.
Drew and I have been living together for just over a month. But it feels like it’s been longer. You know when you get your hair highlighted? And after just a day or two you can’t remember what you looked like before? Can’t imagine a time when your hair wasn’t this vibrant, multifaceted shade? It’s a lot like that.
There we are—on the floor, snuggled under a pile of pillows and blankets, eating popcorn—while Han Solo is about to be frozen in carbonite. Oh, and Mackenzie is here too. Alexandra and Steven asked us to watch her for the afternoon.
“I don’t get it.”
Drew’s eyes don’t stray from the plasma. “What don’t you get?”
I sit up as I explain. “The man is most likely about to die, and the woman he’s wanted all this time finally tells him she loves him—and what does he say? I know? What kind of line is that?”
Drew looks genuinely shocked. “Uh…the greatest in cinematic history?”
“Why didn’t he just say he loves her too?”
He sits up, giving me his full attention. Prepare to be tutored in the finer points of male logic.
“Because he’s Han freaking Solo. He’s the coolest guy in the galaxy. He doesn‘t have to say he loves her—look at everything he’s done for her. She should already know.”
Typical. I shake my head and look down at Mackenzie, who sits between us. “When you fall in love? Go for a guy like Luke.”
Drew is highly offended. “No. No way…”
“He’s sweet. Brave but sensitive.”
“Luke is a whiny little bitch until Return of the Jedi.”
Mackenzie reaches for her calculator and adds ten to the tab. Did you miss the Bad Word Jar that’s sitting on the coffee table? Yeah—it’s almost full. I say Drew should just buy her a Ferrari now. By the time she’s old enough to drive it, they should be about even.
“If you decide you want to get married, Mackenzie—someday—it should be to a guy like Han.”
Mackenzie turns her head from Drew to me, like she’s watching a match at Wimbledon.
“He’s selfish and egotistical. Always running off in his space cruiser—”
“That’s the Millennium Falcon to you,” Drew interrupts.
I ignore his correction. “And he’s obviously a playboy! A womanizer. Why would you want Mackenzie with someone like that?”
“Correction: he was a womanizer. Until he met Leia. She changed him. And Mackenzie—like Leia—is going to be smart, strong, and powerful. She’ll eat a weakling like Luke for breakfast. Han, on the other hand, will keep up with her. Keep her satisfied.”
He smirks—in that way that makes my stomach tighten—as he adds, “Like us.”
I smile teasingly. “But I’m never satisfied. I always want more.”
Drew’s voice drops suggestively. “I guess I’ll have to work harder, then.”
And just like that, we’re in Lust Land. Get used to it—it happens often. Our gazes lock, and our mouths gravitate towards each other. Don’t worry about Mackenzie; it’s nothing she hasn’t seen before.
Drew is big on the PDAs. Because when it comes to affection—and everything, for that matter—he’s impatient and spoiled. So if he wants to touch me, kiss me? He does. And he really doesn’t give a damn who’s around at the time.
It can be a real turn-on—or incredibly frustrating, depending on the circumstances.
Before our lips touch, the phone rings. And Mackenzie’s blond head pops up between us.
“I’ll get it!”
Alexandra said she’s really into answering the phone lately.
Has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?
She listens to the receiver, then turns to Drew. “Uncle Drew, it the doorman. He say there a package for you.”
“Tell him to sign for it, and I’ll pick it up later.”
She does. Then she listens again and says, “He say it per-ish-able.”
Drew’s brow furrows, wondering what it could be. “Okay. Tell him to send it up.”
Drew pauses the movie. Before he stands, he picks up my hand and kisses it softly. And his eyes promise more to come.
This is our first clothed weekend. And although I adore Mackenzie, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t looking forward to some non-G-rated activity later on. Yes—my name is Kate, and I am a newly indoctrinated sex addict.
But come on, look at the man. Can you blame me?
Drew opens the door, and a uniformed man hands him a clipboard before sliding a large cardboard box—with holes on top—through the doorway. Drew signs, looks down at the box, and kicks it with his foot. “What’s in—”
Before he can finish, a chorus of sounds emerges from the box.
Mackenzie’s jaw drops as she runs forward. “It sounds like kittens!” She takes the lid off the box. “It is! Is a whole box full of kittens!”
Is it ever. I stand up and peer inside. Eight kittens, to be exact.
Drew looks accusingly at the deliveryman. “What the fuck is this?”
“These are your foster kittens.”
Kitten Man checks the clipboard. “Drew Evans, right?”
“You signed up to be an animal foster parent. These are your wards for the next four to six weeks.”
Drew is already shaking his head. “I didn’t sign up for shit. I hate cats—they’re Satan’s pets.”
Kitten Man hands Drew the clipboard. “That’s not what it says here.”
By this time, Mackenzie is cooing and petting the box of meowing fur. And I cover my mouth to keep from laughing.
Have you figured it out yet?
“I’m going to kill her. I swear to God! I’m gonna be an only child by the time this day is over!”
That’s when I start laughing. Loudly. As I ask him, “What did you expect? You had a farm animal delivered to her condo on Christmas morning.”
“That was a gift! This is just mean.”
Drew hands the clipboard back to Kitten Man. “Take them back. There’s been a mix up. They can’t stay.”
Kitten Man looks disappointed. “That’s too bad. Without you, these little guys will be euthanized by the end of the day.”
Big round blue eyes stare up at Drew.
“What eufanized mean, Uncle Drew?”
Drew looks at her sad little face for about five seconds. Then he lowers his head in defeat. “Goddamn it.”
I smile at Mackenzie. “It means the kittens are staying, sweetie.”
“Yippee!” She starts taking them out of the box one by one.
Kitten Man turns to go. “Happy Holidays. God bless you.”
Drew scowls. “Yeah, yeah. Happy fucking New Year.”
Then he kicks the door closed.
“I’m gonna name you Nala, and you Simba, and you Fluffy, and you Muffy…and I’m gonna call you Drew Junior! He look like Uncle Drew, don’t he, Aunt Kate?”
Oh yeah—I’m already Aunt Kate. How great is that?
“He does. He’s very handsome and seems smart too. Don’t you think, Drew?”
He’s still pouting. “Yeah. Fantastic. Hey, here’s an idea—let’s take Drew Junior and his buddies down to the Hudson River and see if they can swim?”
I saunter towards my boyfriend. “You don’t want to do that.”With Mackenzie’s focus still on the kittens, I slide my hand under Drew’s T-shirt and scrape my nails over his abs.
That gets his attention.
I keep my voice low. “Nope. Because rescuing poor defenseless animals gets me really …hot.”
Drew raises his brows. “How hot?”
I lick my lips. He watches.
“Very. I’ll probably need you to cool me down with…ice cubes…or whipped cream…”
He puts his hands on my hips and pulls me forward. “Mmmm. Maybe…kittens have their good points after all.”
I smile and nod. And then our mouths are joined. I wrap my arms around his neck, and my feet leave the floor as Drew lifts me up.
Just as his tongue comes out to play, Mackenzie calls out, “Uncle Drew! Simba went pee-pee on the rug!”
He sighs. And presses his forehead against mine.
“I’m sending The Bitch the bill when I get these carpets cleaned. No…better…I’ll have them replaced. That’ll bite her in the ass.”
I don’t want him too focused on a war with his sister. Not when there are so many other—more enjoyable—things he could be focusing on.
“Let it go, Drew. And after Mackenzie leaves, you can bite my ass instead.”
He laughs. And nips at my earlobe.
“You’re right. That’ll be a lot more fun.”
Jena Leigh is the author of the YA Paranormal novel, Revival (The Varient Series #1). It’s getting rave reviews on Goodreads and Amazon, so don’t miss it!
If anyone isn’t familiar with The Next Big Thing blog hop, I’ll explain: Basically, it’s an author chain that gives you the opportunity to discuss your book, while, at the same time getting the word out about the author who tagged you, and also tagging other authors to join in and keep the chain going. It’s a great way for readers to learn more about the many wonderful stories out there and new soon-to-be favorite authors!
Here are the questions…
1) What is the working title of your book?
The title of my romantic comedy is Tangled. A second book titled, Twisted, is currently in the works!
Music is a huge inspiration for me. The idea for the main character, Drew Evans, was inspired by a few songs, including “Womanizer” by Brittany Spears.
I haven’t read many books from the guy’s perspective and once Drew’s entertaining voice started speaking to me, I knew right away that he would be the one telling his story.
3) What genre does your book come under?
I most commonly refer to it as a Romantic Comedy, but the love scenes are pretty intense. And because Drew’s a guy – and describes things as guys tend to do – it can definitely be classified as Comedic Erotica. Funny Smut works too.
This is a tough one. I’ll be putting up a separate post about this as we near release day (May 21, 2013). But for now, I’ll say Ryan Gosling would make a great Drew. He does the charming womanizer so very well AND Drew has some pretty strong opinions about The Notebook. I would love to see Ryan deliver those lines about his own film.
5) What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
A man who has it all and thinks he knows it all, comes to the realization that the one thing he never wanted is the only thing he can’t live without.
6) Is your book self-published, published by an independent publisher, or represented by an agency?
The wonderful Omnific Publishing is my publisher.
About a year.
8) What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
I’ve read a lot of romance…but not a lot of romantic comedies, so a comparison would be tricky. There are some movies that would be a good comparison, however – films like, Anchorman, The Hangover, and Crazy, Stupid, Love. If you like any of those, chances are you’ll enjoy this book.
9) Who or what inspired you to write this book?
A few years ago, I took a creative writing class at a local community college. One of our assignments was to write a full scene from a book. It could have been the beginning, middle or end.
The scene I wrote ended up being the very first chapter of Tangled. After the class ended, I continued to work on the story because the characters had me hooked. And…here we are.
Because Tangled is told from the main male character’s POV, readers will get a peek into how (at least according to him) guys feel and think. Drew’s inner monologues are equal parts informative, touching and hilarious.
More than anything, Tangled is a fun book – a light read, with just a touch of angst to keep things interesting. It will make you laugh, make you swoon, and put you in a good mood.
Now it’s time to tag some of my fellow authors to participate in the Next Big Thing!
Sydney Jamesson SYDNEYJAMESSON.COM SYDNEYJAMESSON.COM is the author of TouchStone For Play, an unashamedly romantic novel with “a touch of Grey” set for publication at the end of this month!
Two wonderful story tellers – be sure to check them out!!
Welcome to the Emma Chase show! Allow me to show you around.
Here, on the Home page you’ll be able to learn the latest news on my soon-to-be released romantic comedy, Tangled. The amazingly perfect cover (“perfect” being a term I do not use lightly) will be released on March 10, 2013 by the wonderful girls over at THESUBCLUB Books. Be sure to check it out – it really is too pretty to miss.
I’m also going to try my hand at blogging. In between the Tangled updates, I’ll be writing about the new and exciting goings on in the publishing industry, my own writing process, and pretty much anything else you’d like to hear about (don’t be stingy with the suggestions). Perhaps we’ll even have a special guest or two over for a visit.
In the Media link above, I’ll be posting the Tangled Soundtrack and inspiration pics for your viewing pleasure. Under the Books link, you’ll find Tangled’s summary as well as information on my upcoming projects and future releases.
Should you want to know more about little ole me, be sure to visit the About Emma page, and absolutely do not miss the Contact link – I would love to hear from all of you. Also, by clicking on the magic coffee cups (aren’t they cute) you can come chat with me on Twitter, Goodreads, and Facebook.
Last, but certainly not least, is our main attraction – the From the Desk of Drew Evans link! This link will transport you to Drew’s very own advice column (and for the love of God, read the disclaimer). Yes, Drew is a very smart and knowledgeable boy, and telling people what to do is one of his favorite things. So, if you have relationship questions or concerns, give him a shout – at the very least, his guidance is sure to be unique and entertaining. (But again, read the disclaimer. I cannot stress that enough.)
More than anything, I’m hoping to make this site a place where fun and laughs can be had by all. I had such a good time writing Tangled, I would like nothing more than to share that with all of you.
**HUGE thanks to the CreativeB for this BEAUTIFUL site!**
Hope to hear from you soon!
