I’m delighted to guest on Harlequin Junkie’s “Author Spotlight” and share fun facts about The Cottage at Firefly Lake. The post also includes a book excerpt, a snippet from one of my favourite scenes and a (limited time) giveaway.

“Gilroy’s debut contemporary is packed with potent emotions…[the] protagonists tug at the heartstrings from the beginning of the story and don’t let go. Long on charm, this story invites readers to come in and stay a while.” —Publishers Weekly (January 2017)
Read the full review here.
—”Memories, regrets and second chances are front and center in Gilroy’s fantastic debut.” —RT Book Reviews (November 2016)
I’m speaking as part of the author panel at this free event, organized by my local RWA® chapter, Ottawa Romance Writers Association (ORWA), in partnership with the Ottawa Public Library.
It’s a great opportunity to meet other writers, learn about crafting a novel, and find out about local resources.

I’m happy to announce that my debut contemporary romance (a finalist in the Romance Writers of America® 2015 Golden Heart® competition), will be published by Hachette Book Group USA, Grand Central Publishing’s Forever Yours imprint in October 2016. It will be followed by two more books in the same series in early 2017.
I shared this milestone in my writing journey in “The Call,” a special post on my blog.
As announced in Publisher’s Marketplace:
“Golden Heart finalist Jen Gilroy’s PORT FAIRLIGHT SUMMER, a battle-scarred journalist comes home to settle her mom’s estate, only to fall for her childhood sweetheart, the sexy small-town boat builder she left behind when she had to choose between her heart, family and career, to Michele Bidelspach at Forever Yours, in a three-book deal, by Dawn Dowdle at Blue Ridge Literary Agency.”
