New Year, New Imprint!

I’m excited to announce that Snowy Wings Publishing is expanding to include two adult imprints, and one of them, Caleo Press, will be the new home for my Stay in Touch series! My steamy contemporary new adult romances will be categorized under the “Spicy” heat level.

I still plan to finish the series within the next few years, I hope. (Fortunately, since they’re standalones that take place concurrently, Brielle’s and Lilac’s stories are complete and there aren’t any loose ends there.) The reason for the delay is because I’ve been focusing on two other author names I write under. Since their series are selling better as of late, I have no choice but to put my Joy Penny writings aside. However, I still hope to tell Gavin’s and Pembroke’s love stories to round out the set. It’s just a matter of finding the time.

Thank you for your support so far, and I hope you’ll watch Caleo Press for many more exciting romance reads to come!



The New Adult Scavenger Hunt is over, which means I can publicly reveal the blurb for the third book in the Stay in Touch series! It doesn’t have a final release date yet, as it depends on how quickly I can get to it.

Title: Touch of Comfort (Stay in Touch)
Author: Joy Penny
Publisher: Snowy Wings Publishing
Publication Date: TBA (2019)

Four friends. Four college grads. Four people figuring out that life doesn’t always turn out the way you expected.

Gavin McCall is used to being the emotional support his best friends so frequently need, but after graduation, he has a game plan that’ll help him start to focus more on his own life: intern at the hottest new marketing firm in Chicago over the summer and walk away with a paying job before the leaves turn orange, even if it means crashing on his friends’ couch and watching his bank account dwindle from zilch to negative nothing while he works his way up. Dating? Who has time for it? Between his best friends’ crises, a lack of support from home, and an unyielding, cantankerous boss, even Gavin’s career plans may go to waste.

One of the most up-and-coming CEOs under thirty, a marketing genius who seems to do no wrong, Gabriel Grant is laser-focused on the success of his business. Men and women fall by the wayside in the path of never-goes-on-a-second-date Mr. Grant. With the arrival of the overly enthusiastic new intern at his firm, Gabriel is both irritated by the man’s unfounded optimism and infuriatingly attracted to the hottest guy he’s ever met. If he’s going to make sure his business remains a success, he’s going to have to push aside the distraction—but his insatiable desire is going to be hard to disregard.

Gavin needs a place to belong, someone to provide the comfort he so readily offers others himself—and Gabriel doesn’t have time for emotional connections. But the heart wants what the heart wants and it won’t be ignored.

It’s cover reveal day for the rest of the books in my Stay in Touch series! I’m also dropping the blurb for the next book, Touch of Heartache. Remember that these books take place concurrently and can be read in any order!

Title: Touch of Heartache

Series: Stay in Touch (Book 2)

Author: Joy Penny

Publisher: Snowy Wings Publishing

Publication Date: 12/5/2017

Four friends. Four college grads. Four people figuring out that life doesn’t always turn out the way you expected.

Just weeks before graduating, Lilac Townsend throws away her elementary school teacher job offer in Minnesota to work in Florida at the official resort of her favorite vacation spot, Tildy World. Pushing down all second thoughts, she fills her mind with visions of sunny beaches and Tildy Tapir, the cartoon character who always promised to make her childhood dreams come true. Unfortunately, between a sleazy boss and a community college student in a character suit who manages to fray her last nerve, Lilac soon learns that working behind the scenes at the park is hardly “happily ever after.”

Nolan Gregosky had plans after graduating high school a few years back: go to college, join a fraternity, and make some memories before earning a degree. Instead, tragedy sidelined those dreams, but his job posing for pictures with drooling, snot-nosed kids as Silly Sandgrouse gives him a chance to unload some pent-up energy. When the stunning but uptight new assistant manager at the resort proves a distraction in more ways than one, Nolan realizes it’s up to him to show her what it means to eat, live, and breathe life at the park.

A relationship at this unsteady stage of their lives might not be the brightest idea for either of them, but it’s hard to ignore that tingling sensation whenever the paths of this plush-suit beast and naïve beauty collide.
