2016 - New York Times Bestselling Author, J. Sterling

No Bad Days

The first book in the Fisher Brothers trilogy is coming!  NO BAD DAYS will be released on January 9th, 2017!

I have a special Pre-Order only price of .99 freaking cents happening right now on all retailers!

This story has the same sort of feels as The Perfect Game (minus the "you know what" part). It's very Jack Carter-esque and if you've been waiting for another book that gave you all the Jack feels, this is it!  This is so it.

And well, it should be. Because it has a lot of "real" Jack Carter stories in it. Yeah, you read that right- No Bad Days is more of the real jack.

The synopsis isn't complete and my editor is probably going to kill me for posting this, but here's a snippet of what the story is about...

Nick Fisher is State's most eligible bachelor; confident, driven and motivated. He's completely aware that every female is trying to land him, but no one knows the real him. Nick is looking for more than just a good time, but you wouldn't know that just by looking at him.

Jess Michaelson knows that she shouldn't want Nick the same way that every other girl does... but she wants him anyway. How could anyone resist those charms? When Nick sets his sights on her, Jess has no idea what she's really in for.

Love is hard.
But it's worth fighting for.

Pre-order it today before the price goes up!

Thanks as always- i'm heading back into the cave to finish No Bad Days. It's the first book in a 3 series book about the Fisher Brothers. You're going to LOVE them.  :)  <3

New Series in the Works!

Just a quick update to let you all know that I'm working on a new 3-book series about a set of brothers and I'm super excited for you all to meet them!

The first one follows the story of Nick Fisher, who is a senior in college. His two brothers are 8 and 10 years older than he is and we get their stories after Nick's!  :)

They all take place in Southern California-  Frank and Ryan Fisher (no relation to Tarryn) co-own a bar in Santa Monica and Nick is a marketing genius who is set to work for their father after graduation.

Each book is named after a popular drink at the bar the boys own.

No Bad Days- Nick Fisher
Guy Hater- Frank Fisher
Adios Pantelones (goodbye pants)- Ryan Fisher

All three books are romances.
All three covers are unspeakably gorgeous and I can't wait to share them with you.
All three are set to release in early 2017.

Hypable talks Dear Heart I Hate You

OMG, DEAR HEART I HATE YOU comes out tomorrow!!!!


I'm pretty excited (and sick to my stomach).

Hypable gave me a little of their time and I was honored.  Even more honored when I read this;
"Sterling weaves a tale of unexpected love and long distance relationships that is both enjoyable to read and truthfully painful when examining the truth about love and ambition."

Read the full interview here:


A must read for aspiring writers

I get a lot of emails asking me about the process of writing. Asking me about self-publishing. Asking me if they should query their book. Asking me all sorts of things.

I gave this interview to Jake awhile back, but nothing in my thought  process has changed one bit. It's one of the most honest, wordy interviews i've ever done.  There's a lot about "failure" in there. There's a little about Drake.  There's more failure references.

Self-publishing was hard. The decision to self-publish was hard. You need to read this interview. Not because it's me giving it, but because of the things I said- the way I felt- if you're an aspiring writer, you might be going through this. You might have already gone through it.

So... you should read it.  And then hit publish.  :)


Thank you so much Jake for the interview. Congrats on your first book and here's to many more!  :)

Signed Paperbacks of DHIHY are Now Available!

I just got in a limited shipment of DHIHY paperbacks.  I've put them up for order over on my store (click the STORE tab up there ^^^^^^).

Dear Heart I Hate You - One Week Away!

We are officially ONE WEEK AWAY from the release of Dear Heart, I Hate You!

I am so unbelievably excited for you all to read this story.  Just thinking about it hurts my guts. Everything I write has pieces of my truth in it.... things I've lived through... heartbreak I've experienced.  This book is no different in that regard, although I do feel like it's different in general. The story itself is different; in the way it's told. This isn't your typical, drama for the sake of drama, love story. There's no over the top ridiculous plot lines.

It's very real.
It's very raw.
It's filled with real life.

I hope you guys enjoy it. I hope you can relate to it.

So yeah.... 7 days away!  It's up for pre-order everywhere except Amazon.  Amazon will go live the day of release. May 9th!

Dear Heart, I hate you Prologue

My next book release will be Dear Heart, I Hate You.  I'm still writing it and i'm nowhere near done, so i'm not sure when it will be releasing. But in order to get you as excited as I am for and about this story, I wanted to share the unedited prologue with you.  I hope you love it as much as I do.  :) 

I didn’t plan on him. ...
Or for him.
Or anything that had to do with Cal Donovan from Boston.
Meeting him had been a complete and utter surprise, taking me one hundred percent off guard. I met new people every single day in my line of work and none of them affected me. Wasn’t that the way of things though? You could meet a thousand people and they’d all mean nothing to you. But then you’d meet that one and they suddenly meant everything.
Being a self-professed workaholic, everyone in my life knew that I didn’t date. It wasn’t entirely intentional on my part to be honest, I just didn’t make men a priority at this point in my life. But that wasn’t to say that if I met someone who intrigued me, that I wouldn’t give it a shot. Because I absolutely would. But therein lied the rub, very few guys sparked my interest and managed to hold it.
And that was perfectly fine by me. Work came first and I wasn’t about to apologize for that fact or feel bad about it. Not even to my ex-boyfriend Brandon when he broke up with me over two years ago because I spent “too much time at the office” when I should have been focusing at least a smidgeon of my time and attention on him. He had played the role of the supportive boyfriend at first, telling me how proud he was of my ambition and accomplishments, all the while his resentment secretly brewing until it exploded out of him one night as we sat in his living room.
He hadn’t been entirely wrong in his frustrations, but even his leaving didn’t make me want to change my priorities. All I felt when he was breaking up with me, delivering a speech he’d clearly practiced more than once, was relief. My heart leapt at the idea of focusing on my career without taking anyone else’s desires or feelings into consideration. Oh, the freedom I looked forward to experiencing and the complete absence of guilt. I knew that might have sounded harsh, but I simply wanted to build a name for myself in the high-end real estate market and I couldn’t do that half-assed. Or maybe I could have. The point being was that I didn’t want to.
Besides, when did making yourself your number one priority become such a negative thing? I wasn’t entirely sure, but I learned fairly quickly after the Brandon breakup that men didn’t like being second on the priority scale. And they seemed to be intimidated by a motivated woman, calling me things like “hard to handle,” “challenging,” and “difficult.”
Being single seemed to work best for me and I had no plans on changing my relationship status anytime soon.
And then I met Cal.
And he fucking ruined everything.

Dear Heart, I Hate You

DHIHY is the title of my next book. I'm writing and working really hard on it right now. I'm so in love with this story and I can't wait until you all get to experience it. It's been a very emotional and painful story for me to write- but my hope (as is with all my books) is that it's relateable and speaks to you on some level. <3

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you'll see some teasers that i've been posting. Heck, i've been posting a lot on my Twitter as well. This book is coming out of me at all avenues- I can't seem to stop it.
