If you pre-ordered the paperback I’ve been assured the issue has been fixed and I would appreciate you taking a moment to reorder. Thank you for your support!! http://amzn.to/29gHfoh

fictionHave you ever wondered why an idea took so long for you to act on? Me too. In fact, I finally set up a Facebook author page. I realized with 5 short stories published it was time. And, I’m halfway through my novel based on the short story “Tears in the Sun”.

I’d love the support if you’re interested in hopping over and liking my page. It’s located at https://www.facebook.com/JAOwenby . I will have updates on the upcoming novel, characters, reviews, and more.

The crazy thing is that I wrote the last 45 pages while selling our current home and purchasing another, working part-time, and writing resumes! When the story flows, it gushes. I will say that having an outline and scenes has made it easier. I’ve thought about this story for years, but in the last one it all began to click.

I look forward to sharing more as I continue to write and move into the edits with my editor.

Until Next Time…

Lexi is used to a difficult life, bouncing around from foster home to foster home, but all that changes when she meets her best friend, Olivia. Lexi has finally found a family.
Three years have passed, and Lexi is beginning to think the dark secret she left behind might stay buried. Then Olivia begins dating the high school bad ass and everything takes a wrong turn.
Life has suddenly blurred the line of what is acceptable and what isn’t as Lexi struggles with if she should step in to protect her friend. There’s more than just friendship at risk; she fears her secret will come to the surface. What will she do?

Thanks for everyone’s support!

tears in the sun cvr 32As you know I’ve listed my latest short story “Tears in the Sun” on Amazon. The reviews have uplifted and encouraged me. Thank you  everyone who has purchased and left a great review.

I had a private message from a friend of mine and I wanted to share it. She writes:

“messaging privately so if you don’t want it to go world-wide, it won’t. Your book wasn’t necessarily my personal cup of tea….but the line about scrubbing out a stain because her family already had enough stains made me cry. That line alone was worth the 99 cents I spent for the book.”

I sat there with my mouth open. My first reaction was feeling bad that I made her cry and then I stopped…what? That one line struck her so deeply she cried!

I wrote her back and apologized for making her cry, sent her a bit hug and then said, “Stirring someone’s emotions that deeply, that’s why I write.”

There are so so so many factors and contributors to writing, but when you know you have conveyed emotions to your reader…that’s huge.

Until Next Time…
