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 2 in explaining all the tiny bits that are making up my current big picture.
Jenny - The Professional (Part Two)
In Part 1 I told you that I now own a company: jab's plethora
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.
I have a lot of content already written that just needs to be edited and formatted into books :D
first project I decided to tackle was the Love Letters series and at
this point I have both Book 1 and Book 2 published and available for
BY THE WAY -- 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.)
BOOK 1 - Love Letters, Volume 1: Moving On, Growing Up
Based on the real-life journey of a woman who wanted to grab every
opportunity to express love and appreciation for the people who added
value to her life: family, friends, lovers...no one is excluded. This
collection of love letters helps us realize that many different people
help shape the course of our life; and we should treasure every person,
every moment that brings us to this exact spot within our development.
Face your love!
The Love Letters collection has inspired the Love and
Appreciation movement, encouraging each person to acknowledge the
special people in their lives by writing their own love letter. It isn't
hard and doesn't require eloquence, only sincerity. Be a part of the online community: jabsloveletters.com
BOOK 2 - Love Letters, Volume 2: Being Adult
The Love and Appreciation Movement, inspired by the Love Letters series,
continues forward encompassing a new category: tribulation. Life isn't
perfect, neither is love. Our experiences are multi-faceted and perfect
only because of their imperfections. Love Letters, Volume 2: Being Adult
explores the idea of love with a deeper, more complex analysis. Each
letter expresses love - as it is, raging with honesty.
The author continues her journey detailing a commitment to a. love
herself and b. love others. She transforms her passion into the kinds of
words that grab hearts and inspire change. Her perspective challenges
each person to acknowledge the love that resides in their heart; and
share it with the understanding that shared-love will ripple outward,
like lake water disturbed by a pebble.
Although the books are within the same series and formatted the same way (using categories), they are different beasts.
I like to say that Book 1 is like cotton candy. It's short and sweet...and can be read over your morning cup of coffee. You can read the reviews posted on Amazon to get a better idea of what to expect. After you read the book, I'd love it if you posted your own review on Amazon or emailed it to email@example.com
Book 2 is about 40 pages longer than the first one...and is denser. Instead of cotton candy, it's more like Shepherd's Pie. The writing is more expressive, more emotional. It was published on January 10th, so there aren't any reviews yet on Amazon, but I'd be pleased as punch if you decided to write a review after reading it. You can also send a review to firstname.lastname@example.org -- we'd love to post it on our various social networks.
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.
***If you have any problems with the website...a link, a form
submission, a purchase, etc...please let me know - you can email
email@example.com 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
Jenny - The Professional (Part 3) is coming soon...
...and we'll talk about the Write My Life project.
