Time and Tide

AUTHOR INTERVIEW: In Conversation with Kacey Sophia

AUTHOR INTERVIEW: In Conversation with Kacey Sophia

Kacey Sophia ((@authorkaceysophia) and I talk reviews, the inspiration behind “Time and Tide” and “Nine-Tenths”, trying to find an agent in the middle of the post-pandemic chaos that is publishing, figuring out your own marketing, and the benefits of publishing to Wattpad.

CAPTIONS ARE AUTO-GENERATED. MY PROGRAM CRASHED EVERY TIME I TRIED TO FIX A TYPO, SO I GAVE UP. SORRY FOR ANY ERRORS YOU FIND.

I didn’t realize how … CLOSE cropped the image would be. I swear I was perfectly framed in my own window.

Can you see the moments when I …
-Realize you can see my lamp reflected in my glasses?
-When I pour myself more coffee?
-When I notice that my still-drying hair is curling wonkily?

Happy New Year!I have decided that 2024 is the year of spreading my work far and wide. As an indie author, I’ve decided to simply give away a whole bunch of my backlisted novels. They had wonderful launches and reviews when they first debuted, and now I just want people to read and enjoy them. So spread the news, the following books are now available for free or for a very minimal token payment on certain platforms:As J.M.

And of course, Time and Tide will be published in November 2024 in print, ebook, and possibly audiobook.

Happy Reading!

ANNOUNCEMENT: “Time and Tide” to be published with Wattpad

ANNOUNCEMENT: “Time and Tide” to be published with Wattpad

“J.M. Frey’s TIME AND TIDE, pitched as bi Outlander, about a young woman who is rescued from a plane crash by a dashing sea captain in 1805, and while trying to find her place in this unfamiliar time, falls for a historically famous authoress, to Margot Mallinson at W by Wattpad, for publication in summer 2024.”

I have been waiting for 56 weeks to share this news!

For those eagle-eyed readers who think the description of this novel is familiar, you’re right. Time and Tide is the revised version of my self-published sapphic romance A Woman of the Sea/The Woman Who Fell Through TimeYou read stories of authors who get their selfpubbed books picked up by a traditional publishing house and re-released with professional editing and a new cover, but I honestly thought the odds of it happening to my work were astronomically low. Imagine my surprise when, almost exactly a year ago, I got an email inquiring about the rights from W by Wattpad!

I’ve really enjoyed working with my editor, Margot, and the marketing team behind the title so far. Their ideas for the cover are fantastic, and we’re already cooking up some other story ideas for our next book together. I have this summer to work on the edits, and I’m thrilled to be bringing you a sleeker, awesomer, and sexier version of this novel.

I can’t wait to share the updates with you!
