First book funded!:)

It's definitely an exciting day in my world. Although I've been writing professionally for two years, and have put my creative work out there for fun, it never occurred to me that the place for my short stories, poetry, and novel ideas was not under my bed. Until, of course, one day it did.Over the past 28 days, we've raised $600 via 24 backers (21 on Kickstarter, and 3 who chose to make private donations) for Ophelia. I am so excited about accomplishing this goal, and so thankful to all of you…See More

Funny Women

I want to encourage women to submit to humor venues. I urge you; I implore you. Let’s start a revolution and change the world’s mind about who’s funny. Your heart will swell with accomplishment and your breasts will become larger. This I promise.

Profile Information

Who I am:
I'm a professional freelance writer who somehow turned a lifetime of experience in the world of theatre and a passion for telling stories into a blog, which somehow led to a career writing copy for a living, which somehow inspired me to someday wish to publish my creative work. A transplant from the Northeast who now lives in Atlanta, I like to say I bring a splash of colour and energy wherever I go, and leave a trail of glitter behind. I'd say I'm a modern-day Carrie Bradshaw, but the truth is, I could care less for shoes. My favourite accessory of choice is a martini. ;)
Connect with me online! My site, blog, or Twitter handle are:
I'd love to have to have you peek into my world, and check out my blog at http://www.jadedelegance.net . You can also find me on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/princessalayna, and far less frequently on Twitter @PrincessAlayna.
Books I've written, anthologies I've contributed to, and any scripts or plays I've authored:
Oh,I'm not that accomplished or fancy yet. ;) I used to publish regularly on the now defunct Insane Poet's Guild, and am working on publishing my first book, an anthology of poetry entitled "Ophelia's Wayward Muse".
Media outlets that I currently write for:
By day, I'm a staff writer at PetHub and work for an SEO/marketing company called Search Influence, writing innovating web copy.
My writing is:
Fiction, Poetry, Blog Posts
Outlets where I review books, TV, or film:
Nope, I don't really do that much, except on my blog.
Services I offer to other writers:
I'm always happy to lend constructive criticism and am a great bouncy springboard for ideas. I'm a little unconventional, think outside the box, and have amassed a lifetime of odd experiences, so reading about yours makes my day---fictionalized or not.
I'm part of these writers' groups or salons:
Write Club Atlanta, Kill Your Darlings ATL, Hyde ATL
I found out about She Writes from:
Chelise Hery

Are you a fan of poetry?

Posted on July 26, 2012 at 2:05pm 2 Comments

I'm embarking on a huge project! After 10 years of collecting poems in journals and on scraps of paper, I've decided to do some fundraising to publish my very first anthology of poetic endeavours. :)



I'm currently 67% funded, and have two weeks to reach my goal! If you're a fellow poet who'd like to consider helping out, please visit the project's page:…

We're delighted to have you join us in the novelist group. If you haven’t done so already, you might introduce yourself by telling us what you’re working on in the “Show Me Your Novel and I’ll Show You Mine” discussion. We do a live chat Wednesdays at 1 EST, with instructions on how to participate in the "Our Water Cooler" box near the top of the group page. And we save the wall for discussion, but welcome links to helpful blog posts on the “Links to Helpful Blog Posts for Writers” discussion thread and to published books in the “Our Published Novels” one. I hope you’ll enjoy the group.
