Thanks! I'm taking a look now.
Currently, I am penning a southern fiction WIP titled "Surviving Hank," my 3rd novel, an espionage suspense WIP titled "The Mayan Serpent," my 4th novel, and a nonfiction "To Have and Let Go," my 24th nonfiction.
Hello Ladies! I'm Jackie. In my head I just heard a resounding "Hello Jackie". Anywhoo, I just discovered SheWrites from a widget on Carolyn McCray's blog, so yes, those things really do work. I'm glad to be amongst ladies who write. When I'm not writing, it looks like I'll be spending alot of time here. Who am I kidding? Even if I am writing, I'll be spending a lot of time here.
To date, I've written 3 novels. I write fiction but I have no idea of what category I'd fall in as a writer. When I tell people I write contemporary or mainstream fiction, they look at me like I'm speaking another language. I usually follow up with Jackie Collins meets Terry McMillian but I still don't think they understand. My current novel that I self-published in March through CreateSpace (paperback) and for Kindle and Nook is called Untitled*. It's about a young blues guitarist named Aiden who constantly struggles to find himself as a person and a musician. It's a story about relationships, struggles, and following your dreams.
The novel I'm currently working on is actually the first book I've ever written. I think I actually want to publish this one as well so I'm going through it, rewriting A LOT of it and just making it work (sorry, I've been watching a ton of Project Runway and that phrase is stuck in my head). Everything about this book, including the title is subject to change. It's current title is Change of Heart. It's a little bit romancy with a ton of relationship drama, something that in the beginning, I tended to write a lot of. It's about four people - 3 guys, 1 girl- who lives are intertwined because of the relationship that they all have with my main character. It's coming along so my fingers are crossed that with all the editing and rewriting, it'll be great.
