What's Up with you, Jenny?! (Part 1)

There's been a lot going on...
...and I am always surprised by how much people don't know about me.

I'm kind of a social network whore...but, be that as it may, it doesn't mean that anyone else is. So even though I post tons of updates, you may not be getting a whole picture.

This is Part 1 in explaining all the tiny bits that are making up my current big picture.


Jenny - The Professional (Part One)

I don't work at WebSpark anymore. I left my position as Operations Manager in October 2011 for many reasons. One of the strongest, most compelling, back-me-into-a-corner type reason was that I wanted to pursue my writing career.

And so, that's what I've done.
I am on a path I would have never expected, but here I am...and loving it.

I own my own company: jab's plethora

I have a Facebook page (and would appreciate your "like") and am currently working on the website. I hope to have an initial site ready for launch sometime before the end of this month. (But for other reasons, not yet discussed, that's gonna be a stretch.)

***And let me take a moment to be thankful for my previous position at WebSpark. I was there for 2+ years and learned many, many skills that I am utilizing now.***

The company was set up so that I can self publish from a strong platform. I don't want to take the time to convince major publishers that any of my ideas are good ones (at least not at this point). That takes a lot of time and energy; and I would much rather focus on the list of projects that I'd like to see come to fruition (I've got a bunch of them). So, that's what I'm doing. If big-momma-publisher sees me doing my thing and wants to pick me up, that'd be lovely. But, I'm not going to hold my breath.

The first project I decided to tackle was the Love Letters series. As I invested time into the project, I was inspired to create a website to collect other people's love letters, if they wanted to share them. I've been running the jab's Love Letters website since November and encourage everyone to come and take a look.

I wanted the website to have a solid and professional looking Home Page and I had a few NC local photographers agree to be featured! Check out their work and book their services!

The website offers a simple contact form so that people can send in their letters!

I also thought it would be nice to allow people to post snapshots of love, so we've got a submission form for that as well.

I'd really like people to get comfortable with the idea to send us Love Letter videos so that we can post them to our YouTube Channel, but that's probably going to take a while; or it may be something that I can explore for book signing events. if you're a YouTube junkie, please subscribe to the channel. I would much appreciate it!

If you're interested in purchasing an autographed copy of either of the books, I will have them available for purchase on the site (only Book 1 is available at the time of this blog post). If you aren't worried about having an autographed copy and/or would like information on how to find an eBook version of the books - I've got that information available on the website as well.  

***If you have any problems with the website...a link, a form submission, a purchase, etc...please let me know - you can email and tell me what's going on. I would appreciate your support in this matter, as I am running in 15 bazillion directions and sometimes smaller details are missed (ack - did I admit that?! sure enough did...)

One of the most important things to know about the jab's Love Letters website is that new love letters (and pictures) are posted EVERY THURSDAY. Visit the site each week to see how people are expressing love and appreciation to each other.
