Fool Me Once (Codie Snow #1): A Romantic Suspense Series

Jade C. Jamison

Something’s gotta give...but Codie Snow doesn’t know if it needs to be her non-committal workaholic ex-boyfriend attorney Slade Sheppard or her unsatisfying job as a nursing assistant. Because even though the chemistry with Slade is off-the-charts hot and the job is a necessary evil, she doesn’t know that she wants either.

Enter Pete Olsen, bad ass cop in charge of serving and protecting the town of Dalton, Colorado. Codie goes on a ride-along with Pete and sees the seedy underbelly of her town, witnessing the gamut—from an amusing domestic dispute to a frightening meth lab explosion—and she decides that law enforcement is not for her.

But Pete just might be.

When Codie learns that a supposed murder Pete investigated on the ride-along is actually a suicide, she poses as a religious fanatic in order to gain access to the controlling cult where the dead woman was discovered, hoping to find the truth.  But has she instead set herself up to be murdered—and will she figure out what’s going on before she becomes a victim?

About the author

For years, Jade C. Jamison tried really hard to write what she thought was more "literary" fiction, but she found herself compelled to write what you read by her today--sometimes gritty, raw, realistic stories and other times humorous, light tales--but most of the stories she writes revolve around relationships and characters finding their way through life. While she doesn't confine herself to just one genre, nor is there a nice neat label for what she writes, most of her work could be called erotic romance. Her main writing passions include rock star romance, romantic comedy, and romantic suspense.

She lives in Colorado with her husband and four children.

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephen King, the most riveting and unforgettable story of kids confronting evil since It—publishing just as the second part of It, the movie, lands in theaters.

In the middle of the night, in a house on a quiet street in suburban Minneapolis, intruders silently murder Luke Ellis’s parents and load him into a black SUV. The operation takes less than two minutes. Luke will wake up at The Institute, in a room that looks just like his own, except there’s no window. And outside his door are other doors, behind which are other kids with special talents—telekinesis and telepathy—who got to this place the same way Luke did: Kalisha, Nick, George, Iris, and ten-year-old Avery Dixon. They are all in Front Half. Others, Luke learns, graduated to Back Half, “like the roach motel,” Kalisha says. “You check in, but you don’t check out.”

In this most sinister of institutions, the director, Mrs. Sigsby, and her staff are ruthlessly dedicated to extracting from these children the force of their extranormal gifts. There are no scruples here. If you go along, you get tokens for the vending machines. If you don’t, punishment is brutal. As each new victim disappears to Back Half, Luke becomes more and more desperate to get out and get help. But no one has ever escaped from the Institute.

As psychically terrifying as Firestarter, and with the spectacular kid power of It, The Institute is Stephen King’s gut-wrenchingly dramatic story of good vs. evil in a world where the good guys don’t always win.
“My first thought when I finished reading was ‘Where the hell was this book when I jumped into self-publishing?’ I love the no-nonsense style that pulls no punches and keeps you interested. If you are thinking about self-publishing (or even going the traditional route) you should read this book before you hit publish.” – L.A. Remenicky, author of SAVING CASSIE

Throughout her life, Amazon Bestselling author Jade C. Jamison has worn many hats. One of the most noteworthy is her ongoing gig as a college instructor (focused mostly on writing—both academic and creative writing classes) which, paired with her career as a successful indie author, gives her the delusion that she is qualified to help other indie/self-publishing (and aspiring) authors become the best writers they can be.

Jamison loves that indie publishing has opened the door to literally thousands of would-be authors, allowing them to share their creations with the world. In a realm that was previously shut off to a good many writers unless they could get their works through all the gatekeepers, most writers languished in obscurity or indulged in expensive self-publishing ventures and still failed to be read widely.

Electronic publishing has changed all that, has, in fact, changed the face of publishing as we once knew it, revolutionizing reading almost as much as Gutenberg’s press hundreds of years ago. The publishing process today is democratic, in that anyone with a little know-how can make his book available to the world—and readers, not publishers, decide whose book will be the next bestseller. But, says Jamison, with great freedom comes even greater responsibility. In the traditional publishing world that still exists today, authors have editors scouring their manuscripts, offering corrections and forcing edits, most of which are designed to make the work better in some way, creating tighter writing and better pacing, making the manuscript error free, and other beneficial changes that happen to a book undergoing the traditional experience. Some indie writers follow their cue and take the effort to invest in their work by hiring an editor and continually improving their writing, yet there are literally hundreds (perhaps thousands or millions!) of indie books available today that, in the author’s opinion, aren’t publication ready.

Jamison taught creative writing and composition classes for years. The underlying premise of this book is that every single story deserves to be told and read but writers should (and likely do) want their books to be the best they can be. This book delves into common indie publishing mistakes—errors that should be viewed as no-nos—and how to fix them. Jamison’s experience in the classroom with hundreds of student writers, as well as the years she has been involved in both indie and traditional publishing arenas, has given her a unique vantage point, and she wants to share her observations—as well as teach a few tips and tricks—with others in the writing world.
