My Bottle Cap Charm Keychains are available for authors!

Hello everybody! I have some news... I'm now making bottle cap charm keychains!

I'm making bottle cap charms featuring book covers for authors. They're super cute, and a unique item to give away as swag! I started out making some for my own covers, plus those of the other authors on the author blog I'm on.

The photos inside the bottle cap are 1" (slightly bigger with edges), and they come on a keyring. I will make the charm featuring your book cover. The placement of picture used for charm may vary depending on your cover (some may not line up perfectly to show the whole title, etc.), but they look great!

Things you need to know about the charms:

  • The charms are not waterproof.
  • If the cover used for the charm hasn't been revealed yet, I will not share the image (original image OR bottle cap image) until after the reveal. 
  • If you want more than one image/cover to be used, I can do that!
  • The more you purchase, the better the price. If you don't see the quantity you need, please send me an email and I'll see what I can work out for you.
  • Shipping times may vary depending on quantity, availability of supplies, how many orders are ahead of you, etc. If you need the charms by a certain time, I'll do my best to accommodate that request. (Approximate time for getting charms made/shipped may run from 1-2 weeks.)
  • If shipping is outside the US, please email for a price quote.

I'm selling these on Etsy (please click here to purchase), but you can also request them from me direct by emailing me at jessasank[at]hotmail[dot]com. I will respond within 72 hours (most likely within the day, but it'll depend on my work schedule).

Quantities currently available:

  • 5 for $10.00 ($2.00 each) *
  • 10 for $19.00 ($1.90 each) *
  • 15 for $27.00 ($1.80 each) *
  • 20 for $34.00 ($1.70 each) *
  • 25 for $40.00 ($1.60 each) *
* Shipping is $3.59 for up to 25 charms (US only)

Any quantities above 25, please send me a message to work out a custom listing.

Here are some examples:

Still not sure? How about I sweeten the deal for you...

Any purchases made between now and May 31st will get this special offer: I will make a couple extra featuring your cover AND showcase them on my blog in a super sweet giveaway. That's right--every author will receive FREE promo from me in a blog post, not to mention Facebook and Twitter pages (most likely in June).

Join me and the rest of The Authorteers on our new blog! #giveaway

Four indie authors have teamed up to form a blog!

And I'm one of them!

That's right, I'm joining forces with Molli Moran, Marie Landry, and Lilly Avalon to form a super group of indie authors on a new blog called The Authorteers! Between the four of us, we've published 14 books, two of them are mine. ^_^ Our books range from young adult to new adult and beyond.

Today is our first official day and we wanted to let you guys know what you're in for and what to expect. We'll be posting not only about our books, but we'll also be featuring our favorite authors and posting interviews, guest posts, and spotlights of new and amazing books. There will also be discussion posts and other posts related to reading, writing, and being an author. Not to mention, plenty of giveaways! So WOOT!

Meet the Authors:

Molli is a Southern author who doesn't consider her day complete if she hasn't written. She loves coffee and talking fast, things she attributes to being raised by Gilmore Girls. She's a romantic at heart, and brings that to her books, which are usually about quirky characters chasing after their happily ever after. Although content when reading, she can often be found watching and flailing over Doctor Who, cuddling her various pets, or spending time with friends, family, or her girlfriend. Molli loves Oxford commas, country music, Stefan Salvatore, and scarves.

Marie has the best job in the world—one where she gets to make stuff up for a living and shamelessly eavesdrop on everyone around her. She writes happily ever afters while dreaming about the day she’ll have her own epic love story to tell. Most days you can find her writing, reading, fantasizing about traveling the world, listening to U2, watching copious amounts of TV on DVD, or having grand adventures with her nephews and niece.

Lilly Avalon is the author of the RESIST series as well as other erotic romances. She's somewhere in the midst of her twenties and lives mostly in the stories in her head. When she's not enveloped in the worlds she creates, she's out in the real world making stories happen. That or reading other romances. It's a toss-up.

Jessica Sankiewicz is the author of the New Adult novella series, This Night. You can often find her either reading or marathon watching TV on DVD, her favorites being Castle and Veronica Mars. She frequently mismatches her clothes and giggles uncontrollably. She knows almost every Billy Joel song by heart. She collects books and toys, and she has an intense love of cats and lemurs. Jessica decided when she turned 27 that she would remain 27 forever. Currently in the midst of her quarter-life-crisis, she is still takin' names and getting very close to reaching an epiphany.

Hang out with us!

We've created a Facebook group to hang out with everyone. It'll be full of all sorts of things from news on our books to links to giveaways and posts on this blog. That way you can stay up to date and not miss out on anything awesome!

Request to join today and we'll get you added to the group right away!

Long time no see...or post... Really?


So, I have somehow managed to spend more than 6 months not posting on this blog. The last post on here was on May 26th when I published Not Until Tonight. That's just ridiculous!

Not only that, but looking at the blog design made me want to punch my computer screen. So, I sat here for half an hour and updated the colors and fonts. Then I went into my tabs and organized all of that mess.

Doesn't it look A LOT better now? I think so.

ANYWAYS... back on point!

During those 6 months off, I was working at a job that sucked the joy from my life. I found it difficult to focus my attention and energies on writing the second book in the This Night series, All This Time. Then, in the middle of last month, I decided I had enough of the stressful job and put in my two weeks notice. I spent a week and a half without a job and managed to de-stress myself fairly well. I'm now working part-time in a different field and it feels good. It's like my life is finally heading down the right path again.

So, in the coming months, I'm going to be putting forth the effort to finish writing All This Time and publish hopefully this spring. There are a few other surprises up my sleeve, but I can't get into them just yet. I promise I will soon though!

Oh, and one last thing...


Kidding... or am I?

Well, that's all I have for today. I'll probably come back on here early January to fill you in on the latest with the writing and the surprises in store. In the meantime, have a great day!
