Jade Lee | It's Done!!


Guess what???

A monthly quiz with loads of fun, strange images, and who knows, maybe even a giveaway!

All from the fertile but fun mind of Jade Lee

Time for ...

A. Martians have landed in my back yard and they're pooping gold!
B. My 3 year old niece has just created the formula for the cure for cancer in crayon! Or was that cancer in crayons? Not nearly as exciting.
C. Her dog Molly insists on putting her nose in my suitcase and slobbering on my clothes.
D. I turned in the manuscript for my Nov 2015 book on time! Er...assuming you add 2 months to my deadline.
Answer D! And honestly a month ago the Martians were more likely. As for C, I managed to close the suitcase so poor doggie is foiled!
So after this miracle created thru hard work and coffee was emailed to my editor, I celebrated by...
A. Dusting my house from top to bottom.
B. I took a shower. Believe me, I needed it.
C. I went grocery shopping for something other than chips and chocolate.
D. I watched a marathon of a new TV show called Get off your Couch, you fat slob.
Answer: B. Yes, needed to bathe desperately. As for dusting? Hahahahahahaha. Grocery shopping? What do you mean? There's nothing I ever eat except chips, chocolate, and coffee. And I get the coffee from the corner cafe. As for TV...I would definitely watch that show if someone created it.
What do I think of my new masterpiece?
A. What masterpiece? Where? Oh that thing I just turned in? Is it even coherent?
B. It's brilliant. Funny, sexy, with some adventure and lots of heat!
C. I'll wait to decide after the movie comes out.
D. I'm sorry. I'm in a Cheetos-induced coma. I have no idea what we're talking about.
Answer: all of the above! Except D. I'm not a fan of Cheetos. I've been binging on left over Halloween chocolate. And there's not really a movie scheduled, though a girl can dream, right?

And finally, you get to guess what my working title for this book is.

A. The Pig Book.

B. The {}*<€|€~><!| book.
C. The hot guy who loves me!
D. Title? Was I supposed to title it? Oh crap...
Answer: all of the above, at one time or another. But in honor of the pig who pees on the hero--forcing a lovely naked in the stream scene--I have indeed dubbed it The Pig Book. (And it's set during summer, so no shrinkage!)
And now that it's done, you get to see the cover of the next book. No, not the pig book, but my May book. You'll be hearing more about it in the next few months. But before you see the cover, you get to guess what it's original title was:
A. The Turkey Book.
B. The *@$#&(*&( book.
C. The hot guy who loves me!
D. Title? Was I supposed to title it?
Answer: Duh -- A. Given the earlier multiple choice, this should have been a no brainer.

So here you go... the cover for FIFTY WAYS TO RUIN A RAKE by Jade Lee.

And now it's your turn. Tell me your favorite title ever. Make one up if you can't think of one. One lucky commenter will win an e-copy (preordered) of FIFTY WAYS TO RUIN A RAKE!

Oh my goodness... picking one fav title out of everything I have read... that is hard... okay one that popped into my head is Ever So Bonnie A Vampire...

How about Make up a Title for Your Favorite Fake Book for
Dummies in 30 seconds?! LOL I know titles are a big part of a
story but I don't think I have a favorite title, now covers,
that's another thing...
(Joanna Moreno 1:29am December 6, 2014)

I suppose looking back at every book title I can think of
what was probably the most clever series all started with
the same primary title - Choose Your Own Adventure! It
really describes every book; since you can always choose not
to finish the book if the adventure isn't the one you would
want to choose!
(Tava H 4:15am December 6, 2014)

Believe it or not I just saw a review for a book called "Dad is Fat". Now that leaves nothing to your imagination on the contents of that book! lol
(Bonnie Capuano 8:42am December 6, 2014)

Mrs. Mike It was the first romance book that I fell in love
(Mary Hay 9:19am December 6, 2014)

I don't know that I have a favorite book title. The author
and the cover are what makes me notice a book first. I've
noticed that the titles tend to be something with a
characters name, action in the book or the setting. Would
love to read this new one of yours. :)
(Phyllis Crabtree 9:59am December 6, 2014)

The cover is usually the first thing that draws me also,
then the Author and then the title.
(Ashley C 12:25pm December 6, 2014)

50 Ways to Ruin a Rake looks like a rather lovely title. Okay I know you don't want a suck up but at least I tried (hee hee). I would have to go with V.C. Andews Petals on the Wind and what got me interested in Historical Romance Novels was Sabrina Jeffries Twas the Night After Christmas. Best to all who have entered
(Holly Loch 1:07pm December 6, 2014)

I can't give you a favorite or eventhe worst though I'm
sure after I hit enter I'll think of a zillion but the book
I am reading right now has a cute title. Death of a Dapper
(Donna Antonio 5:52pm December 6, 2014)

I'm terrible with titles...I'm still trying to decide what to put on my parent's grave stone. I keep
hoping the words will find me but so far nothing...guess that's why I read and create with textiles not
words. Thanks for the fun multiple choice posts!
(Lenna Hendershott 6:50pm December 6, 2014)

No Words:) I have always been a fan of picture books which includes coffee table sized art books on paintings and photography.
(Susan Jang 11:16pm December 6, 2014)

The Madness of Lord Ian MacKenzie by Jennifer Ashley. I
love the title and how it plays into the story.
(Karin Anderson 10:07am December 7, 2014)

I saw one called The Camera and then I could not find the
camera in the book. Sadly the book is no more as well.
(Debra Guyette 11:16am December 7, 2014)

Homicide in High Heels!
(Denise Austin 12:10pm December 7, 2014)

I am new to your books and I am excited read 50 ways to Ruin a Rake.
I love to read and post reviews on Goodreads and Amazon.
(Hillary Kaltenbach 1:18pm December 7, 2014)

I like the titles that are a play on movie titles, like Shana Galen's True Spies.
(Barbara Elness 1:34pm December 7, 2014)

50 Ways to Ruin a Rake is a wonderful title. Of course, I do count the ways.
(Kai Wong 5:09pm December 7, 2014)

I love anything that refers to English history in the title!
(Renee Brown 6:52pm December 7, 2014)

101 ways to get a duke to marry you--made that up
(Denise Holcomb 7:58pm December 7, 2014)

I like fun titles, such as The Care and Feeding of Stray
(Janie McGaugh 8:27pm December 7, 2014)

One of my favorite amusing titles is If Life Is a Bowl of Cherries, What Am I Doing In the Pits? by Erma Bombeck.
