Writer’s Desk


08/06/2017 – I haven’t been writing much. I fell and broke my right wrist. So things have been on hold until I get better. I’m working on week five and finally have some movement in my fingers. Hope everyone has been enjoying their summer!! 🙂

05/03/2017 – WOW! I just realized that I haven’t written here this year! I’ve had quite the last few months. My husband was in a car accident (which he’s fine), but that was enough stress to stop writing for a while. Then my kids were sick. I had to take an unexpected trip for two weeks, which added to no writing. Now, I’m back on track. I’m trying to finish up a novella titled Under the Sun. It’s a companion story to Beneath Her Skin. I’m hoping to have it ready by August. I’m also trying to get my second mystery novel completed (Shawn Angel’s book 2). I’d like to publish that by October. I know my scheduled books are a little late in the year, yet I have to be sure everything is on track before I hit publish. Plus, I’m starting a new publishing schedule. If things go well, I’ll have more books for 2018.

12/10/2016 – I’m working hard on my second mystery novel. It’s really starting to take off. I know I mentioned that some books are unavailable. Sorry, some titles are still off the market. Keep you posted as things develop. I wish everyone a happy and safe holiday!!

11/11/16 – Some of my usual posts are on hold as I make some changes to my website. Please forgive the delay. I’ll try to get everything back on track soon. You may also encounter books that were once available, but no longer on sale. I’m making a big decision on how my books are published. Thank you for your patience as I work hard to get things changed and improved. Keep you posted. Best wishes…

11/01/16 – Wow, I just realized that I haven’t updated this page in a month. Well, I finished a short story called Love Unplugged. It has the same styling as Aftermath with past and present chapters. I know I’ve missed updating my “Behind the Scenes” posts. That’s slightly intentional, but only because I’ve been so busy. I’m currently working on a romantic suspense novel too! It’s a bit different than what I usually write. I’ve amped the suspense. Can’t wait to share it with you.

09/23/16 – GREAT NEWS!!! My shifter romance has been picked up by Cobblestone Press! 🙂 This book will appear under my Jessa Ely pseudonym, so be on the look out for this new release. Keep you posted.

09/18/16 – Yay! I wrote ‘The End’ on my shifter story yesterday. Time for a break, then edits will begin. This novel will be a standalone, and I’ve incorporated a new type of world inside a supernatural setting. The magic is elevated and the romance is taken to another level. I look forward to sharing more as this novel moves forward. In other news… the response for my mystery novel has been awesome. I want to thank my readers for taking a chance on Shawn Angel. She’s not your average kind of woman. She’s strong, a survivor, and a badass. She has weaknesses like anyone, yet she has the heart of a modern day warrior. Please check out On Paid Leave if you missed it.

09/12/16 – I’m almost finished writing my shifter story! I just have another scene to add, and then its ready for editing. Not sure about the publishing date yet. It may fall under my Jessa Ely pen name, but I’ll keep you posted. After this, I’m headed back to my next Shawn Angel detective novel, which I’ve already laid the ground work. Shawn is still snarky and badass, placing her own brand of sass into her world of murder and intrigue. Stay tuned! Some cool reviews are stacking up for On Paid Leave, so if you missed it, check out what others are saying.

08/23/16 – I’ve been extremely busy with so many things. Life hasn’t given me a moment to breathe. Despite needing to catch up on writing a sequel for On Paid leave and another romantic suspense, a book I’ve been writing for a while now has really spoken to me. A shifter romance. I’m hoping to have this done soon. I hoped you enjoyed your summer. It’s back to school time. #lookingforwardtofall

07/26/16 – Today is release day for On Paid Leave!! A huge thank you to my editor, Courtney, for helping me add some finishing touches. I’m really excited about my Shawn Angel series. It will be different than what I’ve ever written before. Who doesn’t love a good mystery with a touch of love? It’s loosely based on a nightmare I had a few months ago, too, so get ready! Currently, I’m hard at work on the second book. Unfortunately, I was sick this last week, so I haven’t written as much as I’d wanted. I’m a little behind schedule, but I’m on the mend. I’m ready to jump back into writing.  If you read On Paid Leave, please reach out with comments, emails, or reviews. I love hearing from you.

07/11/16 – Still super busy on the last few edits for On Paid Leave (nearly finished). I’m happy to announce the book releases July 26th. Pre-order is available. Reader feedback has been positive, so you won’t want to miss this exciting new series. I’ve also started the next book in my Shawn Angel series too. I’ll share more as things develop. Hope you’re enjoying your summer! ❤

04/24/2016 – I’m still working on my novel for Camp NaNoWriMo. I’m about halfway into it and it’s going good. Hope everyone is doing well.

03/10/2016 – I just finished my latest book, but I’m not publishing it right away. It’s a novel that I’ve been working on for several years, and I finally had the time to put the finishing touches on it. The book is a contemporary romantic suspense with a very twisted storyline. 😉 I’ll keep you posted as things develop. In April, I’m joining Camp NaNoWriMo – write a book in 30 days. The Imperial Arm is in audio book production. (Yay!) I’ve loved hearing the book come to life. Awesome! I’m about to take a small break. I seem to write nonstop, but I think some rest is in order before I take off writing in April.

02/16/2016 – It’s release day for A Serenade with Beauty! This is a sweet love story that touches on Kurdish culture. It’s also free to read on Kindle Unlimited. Currently, I’m working on finishing up a new project. (#iamwriting) I have also been writing on a new medieval book, something that follows along with The Imperial Arm, but a standalone. I hope February finds you all happy and healthy.

01/23/2016 – I’m in the final edits to A Serenade with Beauty and it’s off to beta readers too. So far, so good. I’ve given my blog a bit of a face lift… even added a newsroom for upcoming events, editorial content and a reader’s corner. To stay current, please consider following my blog. I’m having one of those funks where I’m not sure what to work on next. I have several projects to consider. Keep you posted…

01/15/16 – I’m writing the last chapter of A Serenade with Beauty. It won’t long before edits begin and my cover reveal. I’ll even throw in a few teasers and a publish date!! Stay tuned…

01/12/16 – Everyday, my fingers are flying over the keyboard. This story is taking shape and surprising me. I’m so excited! 🙂 I still have a bit more to go, but I am 3/4 finished. I’m pioneering a new kind of love story, something I’ve never seen in fiction, I know because I’ve searched all over the web. I’m going to introduce you to a new culture–a new kind of romance. I’ll go ahead a give you a little information. It’s called, A Serenade with Beauty: A Kurdish Love Story. Check out the blurb. I’ll do an official cover reveal soon.

01/06/16 – I’m working hard to finish up a new story, but it may take another month, depending on life. 🙂 I’ve written half of it, so my chances of a month time frame is looking possible. It’s a contemporary–something different. I do have the cover and book blurb ready, but I’ll share it as soon as I begin edits. I’ll keep you posted.

01/02/2016 – Happy New year!!! 🙂 Wishing you all a beautiful and prosperous year. ❤
