Jill of the O.W.L.
Crazy for words
( please email me, ladies at: )

Anyone wanting to do as princessbookie did and introduce me to your friends/readers I'll happily give copies of my books to, and, after you've read and posted your own interview and reviews I'll give away three books in your honor here.

Just email me at and we'll chat.

Or find me on facebook.

Or twitter.

Or myspace.

Thanks again for coming by. Second to writing, I love meeting/making friends and getting to
know readers. Sincerely.

May each of our Christmas trees be surrounded by a bed of books.

Christmas Prezzies

I love giving my books away. Yep. I don't write for the money. Never have. I write because I'm compelled to. The characters inside of me beg to have their stories told. Like I said, I write from my heart, the center of my muse.

I have 3 copies of Heavenly to give for Christmas. To you. To your BFF. Your mother. WHOEVER. If you live in the states, you can enter to win a signed copy.

A Christmas read.

Well, it may not get there by Christmas, but it'll get there soon after. When you're bored with your sparkly prezzies, tired of walking the malls in endless search for ways to spend Christmas cash or just plain ready to read, Heavenly will be there.

To enter, bring along a friend who might like the book. Have her leave a comment here, and be sure she adds me and tells me you sent her.

So easy.

You and your friend will be even more ready for book two, due soon.

Ooooh, I hear a chat coming!

After I finish writing a peice, I let it sit for at least 2 weeks, sometimes more, to 'get away' from it long enough so that when I go back and read it I can "see" better. "See" as in: where a point is not clear, inner dialog that needs more filling out, a scene that should be longer/shorter, where something works/doesn't work, etc.

It's amazing what a couple of weeks does for my vision.

Christmas time is an automatic. Usually, I work through holidays -- nothing stops me -- except family issues ( which, as any writer knows both feeds and kills the muse ). ABSOLUTION is simmering now, waiting for me to return and read it and make above mentioned corrections before sending it off for editing.

Then production!


Contemplaing cover ops now....

Heavenly series readers will be happy to know that I finished the final book, Absolution. It should be ready for publication at the end of 2010. Penitence is due out in the spring of 2010. Can't wait to get the books out there for you.

I'm thrilled with how the series has wrapped up.

And I'm ready to go onto a new project.

Eeenie, meenie, minee, moe....?
