Giveaway and Important Announcement: Between Boyfriends by Sarka-Jonae

A few months back, I read and reviewed "Between Boyfriends" and loved it.  My only problem is with the typos and editing issues.

So, why is this post?  Between Boyfriends got a makeover! 

Sarka-Jonae's chick-lit novel recently got a new cover, a new description, and a new book trailer. It also dropped a few pesky typos and is ready to show off its new svelte, flawless look. You may remember Books are Magic's review of Between Boyfriends last Halloween, where it received a 4 of 5 rating for its humor, well-formed characters, and snarky dialogue, yet some typos did affect the overall enjoyment of the story. This new, error-free version should be a welcome sight for anyone who previously bought the book. You can get the new version free from your Manage Your Kindle page through Amazon. For people who have not checked out the book yet, we hear there is a sale coming up April 14-16. Get the "coming of age novel narrated with humor" for only $0.99!


At first glance, twenty-one-year-old Jan Weston has it all: a gorgeous boyfriend, fun friends, and wealthy parents who take care of all those pesky credit card bills.

Then her boyfriend dumps her, her friendships fall apart, and her parents cut her off. Suddenly without money, without a man, and without a plan, it's time for Jan to grow up.

Determined to get her life back on track, Jan decides it's time to make it on her own. Can she find her way as a single lady in San Diego? Can she fix her friendships, her job prospects, and her hair? And can she keep her vow that she'll never date again, even after she meets a guy who just might be perfect for her?

BETWEEN BOYFRIENDS is a sexy, hilarious story of living life, finding love, and growing up... but not necessarily in that order.


Get Between Boyfriends on Amazon and connect with the author on Facebook or Twitter.


If you downloaded the original copy, you can update to the new version through Amazon, and if you haven't got the book yet, it will be on sale from April 14-16 for only $0.99.  Buy the book here.

  1. Sounds very good! Thanks for sharing :)

  2. First, I think it's brilliant that you went back in & removed the typos. The great review you received helps too.

  3. @Mary Thanks :) The typos was a source of major contention. I had two editors go through the book originally, so I couldn't believe there were typos. Some people, other writers and a literary agent, said they didn't see any, but many reviewers said there were tons... I couldn't reconcile this in my brain, so I went ahead and hired a professional copy editor. The copy editor actually said the original was "pretty clean" and suggested very few changes. Mainly, she changed "OK" to "okay," added a few commas, and changed the dashes. However, there were many OKs in the book. I still don't understand how some people saw tons of typos and others saw none, and how the copy editor didn't catch many, yet there were many instances of the ones she caught... It was all just really confusing, but I am very happy that now I can say for sure that the new version is error-free, as much as any professionally copy edited book can be completely free from mistakes :)
