Sweet Hearts Has a New Cover!

My resident graphic designer has been busy. As a result, I have another new cover to announce! This one is for the Valentine’s Day edition of my Happy Hearts sweet romance series. In addition to the new cover, the novella has received a light edit (by me), and an...

Kindled Hearts Has a New Cover!

As I’ve learned more about how to present books to the world, I realized my Holiday Romance series under my Jessica E. Thomas pen name needed a little work. The series was an experiment. I read a Christmas-themed sweet romance novella and I thought: I can do that. So,...

Fall Has Finally Arrived

It’s a gray day here, but I don’t mind. The gray sky, yellowing leaves, and brown soybean fields are a lovely combination outside my front window. With my cat sleeping on the table next to me and my children occupying themselves in their rooms, it makes for a blessed,...

New Office Tour

I can’t believe another week has passed! It was a productive and exhausting week, which is typical around here. My word count for my WIP is now up to 40K words. I’m off work next week for my kids’ fall break, so I hope to log another 10K at minimum, perhaps more. I...

Hello October

The weather is getting colder, but not by a lot. The Weather Channel indicates we’ll be in the 70’s well into October and I’m just fine with that. I’m ready for colder, darker days. I know, call me crazy. But there’s something comforting about watching Food Network...

Moving Weekend!

This weekend I’ve been moving my computer, books, notebooks, etc. to my new office. It’s so clean and new that I had to buy a new wireless mouse and keyboard, and new mouse pad to match. Unfortunately, my office chair is looking a little worse for the wear but it’s...

Universal Fantasies Sell More Books?

It’s Sunday, the end of a long week of writing. My brain and fingers are hesitant to write this because the well is quite dry. However, I have determined today is a day of rest from the WIP. I will not plot any fiction, nor will I write any fiction. Tomorrow, Monday...

The Last Vestiges of Summer

The weather is perfect, just how I like it: warm bordering on hot, but not humid. I contend that sunny September days are the best summer days, rivaled only by early-fall October days when the chill sets in and the soybean and corn fields are brown before the harvest....

Common Oddities LLC: Office Progress Pics

The Common Oddities office and parent’s retreat is almost complete! Common Oddities is the umbrella LLC for my husband’s woodworking business and my author business. Twenty years ago, when my husband and I built our house, we decided to build a detached garage with a...

Desperately Seeking Boredom

I have a problem. I’m addicted to my phone. I know I am because…I just know. But also, I took an online quiz. The results were not good. I scored in the “you might want to contact a behavioral therapist” range. I’m not a professional, but I’m pretty sure that’s bad....
