Jacksonville, FL Author Publishes Romance Novel

Wings of the Monarch, a new book by Etana Jane, has been released by RoseDog Books.

As a child, she watched a monarch butterfly fight its way out of its cocoon. She watched as the tiny creature stumbled around, clinging to a branch as its crumpled, wet wings dried. She sat in awe as the monarch spread its beautiful wings and, for the first time, took flight.

Abigail is a traveling nurse dedicated to her job and rarely staying in any one place. That all changes when she transfers to a hospital in Clearwater, Florida. There she finds a true friend and lover in a beautiful fellow nurse who introduces her to the world of BDSM. Meanwhile, Abigail has no idea that at her last position across the country, she had become the Holy Grail for a Dominant who will stop at nothing to claim Abigail as her own.

Abigail finds herself in a whole new world full of secret fantasies and forbidden desires. As she learns the intimacies of BDSM, she finds hidden parts of herself she didn’t even know existed. Will Abigail stay the stumbling butterfly with wet wings clinging to the tree, or will she find the courage to spread her wings and fly?

Jacksonville Company Grants New Roofs to Local Teachers in Its Annual Program

 Reliant Roofing, Solar, & Hurricane Shutters (Reliant) is kicking off their fifth annual Every Shingle Heart Initiative. This program started in 2017 as a way for them to give back to the community by providing people in need with new roofs.

Reliant, a family-owned company that opened in 2015, is partnering with the roofing manufacturer, GAF, to give away 3 free roofs to local teachers. “As we all know, the 2020 to 2021 school year had many challenges for teachers around the entire United States,” said Cameron Shouppe, President of Reliant. “We are beyond proud of their work ethic and determination to continue quality education, even in difficult circumstances, for all of our children. Teachers do so much and they need to know that they are appreciated.”

The roofs will include all labor and materials and will come with a GAF 25 year warranty, along with a lifetime workmanship warranty, provided by Reliant. “This roof will have the best materials on the market, completed by the area’s highest-rated roofing contractor. These educators deserve the very best roofing system we can provide. As a local company that cares immensely for the citizens in and around Northeast Florida, we want to give back to those who truly need it,” said Sean Shapiro, CEO at Reliant. “My wife has been an elementary school teacher for many years, so I know firsthand that teachers are some of the most hardworking and selfless individuals in our community.”
