Janette Rallison has five children who keep her well supplied with plot ideas, sometimes even making cameo appearances in her novels. She likes to write romantic comedy because there is enough angst in real life, but theres a drastic shortage on both humor and romance.


Playing the Field was named Society of School Librarians International Best Book Award Honor Book, and both Alls Fair In Love, War, and High School and Love, Life, and the Pursuit of Free Throws were included on YALSA

The Cowboy and the Girl Next Door is released!

I always feel so weird telling people that my book has been released. It sort of makes me feel like my book was kept locked in a basement somewhere.

But anyway, it’s out in the world now and you can get it here Click for the Best Cowboy Romance Ever

or read on Kindle Unlimited. And please, please review!

She won’t lose the ranch without a fight, even if it means fighting him.

“Courage is a fickle creature. Just as you need it, it often makes excuses and rushes out of the room.”
Janette Rallison, My Fair Godmother

“Yesterday you asked me what the purpose of life is. I've thought about that ever since. I think it's to do good no matter what life throws at you, to not let the pain turn you bitter. It's something we have to learn, something we have to make ourselves become...Little kids don't have to learn it. They already know.”
Janette Rallison, Just One Wish

“Madame Bellwings, Memoir Elf Coordinator, was not at all pleased with this request, because elves who write the memoirs of teenage girls have the habit of returning to the magical realm with atrocious grammar. They can't seem to shake the phrases "watever" and "no way," and they insert the word like into so many sentences that the other elves start slapping them...and for no apparent reason occasionally call out the name Edward Cullen.”

“Charlotte: "It’s too bad they don’t give out diplomas for what you learn at the mall, because I could graduate with honors in that subject. No really. Since I’ve worked there, I’ve become an expert on all things shopping-related. For example, I can tell you right off who to distrust at the mall:

1) Skinny people who work at Cinnabon. I mean, if they’re not eating the stuff they sell, how good can it be?

2) The salesladies at department store makeup counters. No matter what they tell you, buying all that lip gloss will not make you look like the pouty models in the store posters.

3) And most importantly—my best friend’s boyfriend, Bryant, who showed up at the food court with a mysterious blonde draped on his arm.”

Jasmine Thanks for listing the giveaway for My Double Life on goodreads. I'm so glad that I won, and I can't wait to read it and review! :)


oliviasbooks I love "Just One Wish" so far (page 78). The combination of "slightly-missed-moments" (i.e. in the stadium), the heartbreaking Jeremy-talks about genie-wishes, the no-matter-what-friendship and the heroic scenes (i.e. Toys-R-Us-action) wins me over easily.
I am pretty convinced that you would love one of my ya favourites: "My most excellent year" by Steve Kluger: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/11...

I was merely exaggerating. ;) But that explains why you've been so busy. Judging a romance contest AND revising a book makes for a busy person.

Janette I was just a judge for a romance contest so I had to read a dozen or so books, but a thousand? Nope. You must have me confused with someone else--either that or goodreads is posting things for me.

Douglas Cootey You are a reading machine. Every few days there's another thousand or two books you've polished off. Where do you find the time? ;)


Jourdan Janette, I just read one of your blogs (the things that bother you about ya authors) and I wanted you to know that I do appreciate romantic comedies! I think your books are great and can't wait until your new ones come out. I do think authors write about trashy stuff anymore and I like your books. They're clean but super entertaining. I think you're halarious and laugh when I read your blogs. Most people think they have to write about bad things to get people to read their books but people would be entertained with a little comedy too. Thanks for your great books, Jourdan :D


Jeannie Faulkner Barber Thanks Janette for adding me as a friend. I LOVE your titles. They hook you right off the bat!
Blessings,
Jeannie

Erin Hi Janette!! :)


Jourdan Hey Janette! I was wondering if you have any new books coming out? I loved how to take the ex out of ex boyfriend! it was great.

Liz Thanks for asking to be my friend, Janette. I'm a big fan of yours. Wish I could write for YA like you can. I also appreciate your willingness to teach and mentor through writing groups.
