Setting in New Book???
Hey I have a book that I have been working on since 2005. I can’t tell you much about it except it is a continuous work in progress.
I like to hand write my novels before typing them. So technically I am half way finished. Its great and I love it! I still got more to do and will definitely work this year to complete it. My new goal ( I have many goals in life) is to copywrite it and send it to an editor. Then self-publish again.
It feels freeing to just write and have the mind wander in a vast space of endless creativity.
🙂 I’ll keep you posted!
In April 2013 I had my first book launch at the Hilton Branch Library in Maplewood New Jersey.
I was explaining the story of my book Amazons of the Myst. I also answered questions from the audience.
The gathering was small but still pretty good. That night I sold 30 copies of my book. Not bad for a self published writer with no connections. 🙂
Of course I had to sign my copies. The first editions!
My heart lingers for that feeling of warmth. Dark degree of hatred scratches at my soul. Devouring it to it’s last ounce of life. My hate blooms with a power so fierce it frightens even me. How can the wicked live on with their hate as mine dooms me to a stump of endless pain? Harsh reality hits me like water from a hieght of a hundred feet. It tingles at first then burns profusly. I set fire to your land in hopes to make you burn with me. My hatred burns within me and leaves me with nothing. Curse the day I met you and saw your devious smile. Time with not wilt my pain or sorrow. Only with fire shall I burn you with my hate. Forever will you be lost in a endless balance of ash. Dark fallen and mourned. Breaking apart with every touch. This I hope consumes you as it has done me. Life is not what I had hoped it would be. So there you have nothing not even your fellows to save you now. Die countless times, and burn endlessly.
I wrote this based on one of my characters from Amazons of the Myst. This is when the character Nanette is betrayed and expresses how she feels. This is not in the book, but something I created based on the content.
I love this museum so much. I wish I could take photos inside the place but it wasn’t allowed. I got a shot of Hachiko the faithful dog who waited for his owner even after the owner died. Such a fun trip I must go again!
Hey if anyone went to Ghibli museum share some photos of yours!
This is my first published novel. I started writing it in 2005 at the age of 17. I didn’t finish writing it until early 2013 and published it a few months after that.
It is truly my baby and I have to say it wasn’t easy getting it out there. I self published without any help. Now that I look back on it, I can say that I am very proud of myself for sticking with my goal of being an author. No I’m not famous, but to hold a physical representation of something I had in my head several years ago… it makes me pretty darn accomplished!
I encourage all authors out there who don’t have an agent or publisher to not give up. Even if it’s not the best work you can put out there, it is something. Don’t let anyone, not even yourself, stop you from accomplishing your goals!
This link shows you what your own will can accomplish without any help! So what’s stopping you??
Hey it’s Jazzi and this is my first post. I hope to add more posts and fun things in the future. For now I am just testing this thing out. LOL
