Jo Ann Sky | Author-Reader Match: NO PLAYER REQUIRED
Author Guest / October 19, 2021

Instead of trying to find your perfect match in a dating app, we bring you the “Author-Reader Match” where we introduce you to authors you may fall in love with. It’s our great pleasure to present Jo Ann Sky! Writes: I write contemporary romance that are both sweet and sexy, with a good dose of family and strong friendships. My heroines are strong and my heroes love them for it. NO PLAYER REQUIRED is the 3rd book in my Biggest Little Love Story series, which takes place in and around Reno (the “biggest little city in the world”).  My heroine, Destiny Morson, has just started a non-profit when her partner takes off with all of their community-raised funds. She has no time for fun (or love). Rafael “Rafa” Salord is in town to check on his father’s newly-acquired casino, a task he feels is more punishment than pleasure. Will these opposites attract? Rafa’s determined to remain a playboy, but all bets are off when he crosses paths with Destiny. About: I live in Reno, Nevada, with my husband and three kids. I love dogs, in particular older rescue dogs. They are the most overlooked, under-appreciated gifts of goodness. In fact, I’ve…

JoAnn Sky | Top Five Everyday Reasons Why My Husband Rocks Every Day
Author Guest / June 11, 2019

Hi Everyone! Thanks for allowing me to be here today.  When I was here last year, I wrote about my five favorite go-to romance movies last year.  So, I decided to write another “Top 5” list, and a few nights ago, I sat on the couch and started pondering ideas. Hubby came in with the glass of Sauvignon Blanc I’d started and accidentally left in the kitchen (I think he knows my best ideas start with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc), and sat down across from me. Me: I need to come up with a Top 5 list to write about. Something interesting. *takes a sip of wine* Hubby: How about Top 5 dog breeds? Background: I love dogs, especially older rescue dogs. We’ve had seven since we’ve been married and currently have 3, one of which just joined the family last month. Gizmo is a ten-year-old going-blind, going-deaf sweet-ball-of-fur shih tzu.  I also write children’s books about said rescue dogs. You can check them out at: . Me: It needs to be romance-related. And fun. And unique. Hubby: How about five best sexual positions? Me:  *sigh* And clean. *takes another sip of wine* Hubby: How about the five…

JoAnn Sky | My Five Go-To Romance Movies
Author Guest / May 21, 2018

I was recently reviewing lists of potential interview questions for my upcoming blog tour for my debut, NO COWBOY REQUIRED, which released on May 14th (woohoo!). One of the questions was: what do you do when you get stuck writing? That got me thinking. I don’t really have something I “do” when I get stuck, except, I guess, stop writing until I feel like it again (thank goodness this isn’t my full-time job…yet!). But I do have something I do when I get overly stressed in general, whether about my writing or my day job or my kids or when my mother-in-law is coming to visit and the house is a wreck… you know, those every-day sort of stressors. What do I do? I cocoon and watch a romance movie in my bedroom. I invite my daughter to watch with me, and she used to agree—until, over time, we’d watched my selections each twice and she realized the selection list was finite and very small. Because, you see, I can’t watch just any romance movie. I have my go-to list; those movies I can watch over and over without getting bored – and without the urge to recite the lines…
