An update

Sometimes the fastest way isn’t always the best way. Sometimes the best things in life take a while.  

– Emily Beth

Hi all! It’s summertime, and what goes great with summertime? Reading a good book. Which is why I’m assuming there has been an upsurge of inquiries about The Great Trees Fall in the past few weeks. As you may have noticed, the book has not been released yet.

I appreciate your eagerness to know when the book will be released. As I’ve remarked numerous times before, you’ll know as soon as I do!

As I’ve grown up over the past couple of years since  Skin Like Dawn, so has my responsibilities in life as an adult. Adulting things like family (had a death in my family very recently), work, graduate school, and planning my wedding have taken precedence.

That doesn’t, however, mean that I’ve forgotten about dear ol’ Brandon and Natalie, nor have I stopped writing their story. I’ve just been busy working on mine!

Again, I sincerely appreciate your patience. The day that I announce a release date will be a great day, I know. But, in the meantime, have a little faith, and enjoy another book! 🙂

A Quick Update + Snippets


Hi Readers!

As many of you have guessed, my book The Great Trees Fall hasn’t been released yet. I appreciate all of the emails and posts you sent me checking in on me and the book’s progress. I had every intention of releasing the book this year and that hasn’t happened. I sincerely apologize to those who are anxiously awaiting the final book. I am just as anxious to see how Brandon and Natalie’s story will end as you are!

I often have dreams of writing fiction full-time, but that hasn’t come to fruition yet.

In the meantime, I try to squeeze in my fiction writing time when I can. Unfortunately, as adulthood has it, and as I get older, my “real life” responsibilities paramount some of the things I actually want to do with my day.

Take a look at some snippets from the book below.


As always, I sincerely thank you for reading my stuff, and I thank you for your patience. You have no idea what your support has meant to me!

Sincerely yours,

Jade Alyse

Just a Couple of Quick Updates for Eager Readers

Hello Readers,

I know that it’s chilly where you are, and you’re looking for a nice book to snuggle up with.

Sound about right? I figured.

I’ve received a couple of messages on my Facebook page, asking me when my next book The Great Trees Fall will be released, and if it will be released sooner than March 9th (yes, that March 9th in 2015). I would love to say that the book was ready for release now, but it isn’t, and I sincerely appreciate everyone’s patience as I finalize this project.  Believe or not, March will be here in the blink of an eye.

Think about it this way: the holidays are here and the end of the year is right around the corner.

With that being said, I want to thank each and every one of you who’ve reached out to me expressing your anticipation for the next book. I’m just as excited as you are!

March 9, 2015, is still the release date for the book, and I don’t expect it to change.

In the meantime, I’ll be sure to post another snippet, and if you have any questions or concerns, please, do not hesitate to reach out to me. I’ll try to get to your inquiry as soon as humanly possible.

Much love,

Jade Alyse

Hello Readers!

I hope you had a wonderful day!

So, in light of the final book in the series coming out later this year, me & the designer Darin Michelle started an initiative to revamp the previous 2 covers, in order to make the series more aesthetically cohesive. Needless to say, I’m happy with the results! Darin Michelle has done it again!

And don’t worry, Skin Like Dawn will follow!

What do you think?


Exciting Things

Hello Readers,

Happy Spring!

Is it just me or is this year flying by?

Anywho, I have some exciting things coming in the next couple of weeks, that I cannot wait to share with you! No, I’m not dropping the ball and releasing The Great Trees Fall earlier than expected (although the thought is nice, right?).  But there is something aesthetically exciting that I know you will enjoy.

Hint-hint: it has something to do with the When You Come to Me series.

Also, When You Come to Me (the published version) is 3 years old! How crazy is that?


The Great Trees Fall Has An Official Release Date! September 10th

Hello Readers!

I just want to remark quickly on how thankful I am for you guys.  From the emails I receive, to the comments you leave on my Facebook page, I am one lucky girl! Your support has meant the world to me.  With that being said, I am happy to announce the release date of The Great Trees Fall.  Yes, yes, I know that it’s a little later than the one last year, but I want to thank everyone for their patience.  While working and being a grad student full-time, consumes the bulk of my existence, I still want to ensure that I release a book is near to perfect as possible.  And that, of course, takes time.  Keep in mind, dear readers, that I am actively working on it, and will regularly give you all updates as they are available.  And those updates include a few snippets here and there to tide you over until the release date.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please, do not hesitate to reach out to me via email or on my Facebook page.  I’ll try to get back to everyone as soon as I can.

If you haven’t yet, head on over to my Facebook Page and like, like, like! I need your help in spreading the word about my books!

Sincerely Yours,

Jade Alyse

Want to Talk About My Books? Check Out the Newly Added Forum on Facebook!


I hope you all, wherever you are, are staying warm and having a great day! I have some semi-exciting news to share .

I received a suggestion a few weeks ago from a pretty awesome reader, asking me to start a forum where my books (particularly When You Come to Me & Skin Like Dawn) can be discussed with me and with other readers. I thought it was a great idea, and decided to give it a try.

So…here it is! Please take a moment, if you’ve read any of my books, and see what other readers are talking about. If you haven’t read them or haven’t finished (yet), it’s a great place to see what other readers are thinking!

As always, thank you so much for your support! Please continue to spread the word to other unknowing book-lovers and leave as many (positive) ratings and reviews as you can.
