Welcome to Aberdeen…May 27

“Great. Now I’m stuck here with no escape.” Lily started the car, taking extra care when she maneuvered onto the highway. She didn’t want another run-in with the officer. “This vacation will be the worst ever.”

“Are you kidding me? A hot cop stopped you.” Peri’s gaze remained fixed on the departing officer. “Now, that’s a nice welcome to Aberdeen.”

Cue the drumroll…


Finally…the day has arrived.

Hometown Player by Jules Hahn is now available. You can purchase on Amazon KINDLE, Baker & Taylor Digital, BNC BiblioShare, Google Books/Play, iBookstore Apple, KOBO, Nook, Overdrive, and of course, Wild Rose Press, my publishing house.

On May 27, 2020, you can continue Ben’s journey in Welcome to Aberdeen.

Never give up…


Never give up…yup, that’s what I believe. For years, I dreamed of publishing a book, but my insecurities got in the way. I’d write, read my draft then immediately decide I didn’t have the skills nor the talent to write a story.

Somewhere along the line, though, I developed a need to give up my fears and go for it. I mean, what did I have to lose? A little pride, for sure. Getting rejected on any level is a gut punch and goes right to the heart of who we are. But…choosing to ignore my dream was also a form of rejection–and of the worse kind–rejecting myself. 

Took me forty-seven years, but I finally found the courage, and so, now, seven years later, on a day in Phoenix where the temperature feels like a thousand degrees, I am about to achieve a goal I never thought to attain–publishing my very first book — Hometown Player. Wowza…

This proves, if I can publish a book, then anyone can realize their dream too!

Not only have I achieved my goal of publishing book, at the end of May, my second book, Welcome to Aberdeen, will be published. And, if I’m really lucky, I hope to have my third and fourth out next year…Mr. January and Hometown Heartthrob.

Hate to say it, but I’m putting my COVID-lockdown to good use. 🙂

But, back to Hometown Player. When I wrote the short, I never thought I’d publish the story. Really, for me, it was an exercise in getting to know Ben and exploring his world of a carefree man seizing his opportunities. However, the more I developed the story, the more I saw potential, and through that process, I really ended up loving him, and the story, even more.

Thankfully, my publisher, Wild Rose Press, agreed. 

I hope my readers enjoy the story as much as I enjoyed creating it.

On May 27, Welcome to Aberdeen will be available, which continues Ben’s journey. 

Not to sound cliche, but having two books published is a dream come true!

And I hope, whatever your dreams, you reach for them.

What have you got to lose? 


5 Weeks…



Social distancing got you down?

A little bored at home and wish you had something fun to read?

Well, I’ve got you covered.

Ben Jordan is about to have his perfectly ordered life turned upside down. Taylor Madison is a complication he never expected. The question he must answer is whether his free-living bachelor status is worth giving up on a chance at love. 

Hometown Player by Jules Hahn will be available on May 11, 2020, at Amazon KINDLE, Baker & Taylor Digital, BNC BiblioShare, Google Books/Play, iBookstore Apple, KOBO, Nook, Overdrive, and of course, Wild Rose Press, my publishing house.

Coming soon…Hometown Player

Excerpt from Hometown Player

Watching his dark stare take in every inch of her, Taylor had a momentary worry her knees would buckle. Her heart fluttered, and she forced herself to walk toward the restroom. Casually, so to appear unaffected, she slid open the bathroom door and stepped inside. As the door closed, the sound of laughter and music dulled to a low hum.

Closing her eyes, she inhaled a deep breath. Then, hurrying across the room, she pressed her hands against the cool edges of the sink and stared in the mirror.

Get your act together, Madison.

He wasn’t the first man she’d enticed—but hot damn—he stoked an almost unquenchable fire deep inside.
