12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop #CheapGift & @AuthorJessicaJ

On the fourth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…a cheap gift. This time of year, we all need inexpensive gift ideas. Here’s one under $10 that people love and love you for sharing.

Mayhaw Jelly

My friends at Cedar Head Farms make a few things, but my very favorite is the Mayhaw Jelly. I’m from the Mayhaw Capital of the World. Not kidding. Colquitt, Georgia is my hometown and hosts the annual Mayhaw Festival. My sister was the Mayhaw Queen, once upon a time. A Mayhaw looks kind of like a cherry, but is from the apple family and when done right, makes a jelly that’ll make you slap your grandma–but please don’t. If she’s like my grandma, she’ll come after you with a switch. 😉

Visit the Cedar Head Farms Facebook page to get their contact information. Email or leave a message and they’ll get back to you to discuss an order. I recommend ordering by the case and giving out to family, friends, and co-workers. Tell them to put it on a biscuit or a piece of toast. With shipping costs, it’s still less than $10 a jar, if you’re in the continental U.S. It’s a simple way to make someone’s holiday brighter–or at least tastier.

Taming Miss Tisdale by Jessica Jefferson


Miss Tamsin Tisdale believes herself to be completely unsuitable for London life. After a myriad of social mishaps, and the potential ruination of her family name, she’s shipped away to her cousin’s northern estate. Only after she accepts the type of existence Society dictates she must follow will she be welcomed home.

Marcus Winston, the Duke of Grayson, has a lackluster reputation. The last in a dying line, he’s endured a protected life—rank with privilege, but encumbered by isolation. After a brief encounter with rebellion, he learns the devastating consequences of his carelessness and willingly accepts living life from inside his gilded cage.

However, a chance meeting with the brazen Miss Tisdale gives Marc the opportunity to reinvent himself into the man he’s always dreamed of being. But when his deception comes to light, and ghosts from both their pasts threaten to unravel the intimacy they’ve come to cherish, will either of them set their fears aside long enough to embrace love? Or will Miss Tisdale’s stubbornness divide them?

About the Author

Jessica Jefferson makes her home in northern Indiana, or as she likes to think of it – almost Chicago. Jessica originally attended college in hopes of achieving an English degree and writing the next great American novel. Ten years later she was working as a registered nurse and reading historical romance when she decided to give writing another go-round.

Jessica writes likes she speaks – which has a tendency to be fast paced and humorous. She is heavily inspired by sweeping, historical romance novels, but aims to take those key emotional elements and inject a fresh blend of quick dialogue and comedy.
