Outer Banks Cool!

My upcoming book, How to Meet a Guy at the Supermarket, has been mentioned in a great Outer Banks Blog/Website! I am very excited and flattered. Check it out!

Outer Banks Revealed, Jess's blurb

Just scroll down and you'll see my blurb and the nice comment the blog author made. I love this! The Outer Banks is such an inspiring, amazing place, and I have had nothing but good experiences with the people attached to it. I would highly recommend a visit to one of my favorite vacation destinations!


Teresa, my amazing sister-in-law, is hard at work designing my back cover and possibly the inside cover of my book (if we can do it that way), and I can't wait to see it! She designed the front cover for me, and I think she did a terrific job.

To be able to hold my book in my hands, in paperback form, will be the thrill of a lifetime. I liken this experience to giving birth, although with the drugs, having my two children was actually not as difficult! Writing a book and breathing life into fictional characters is amazing--like raising children. You know what you want for their future, and it is your job as mother or writer to mold your creations. It is a humbling experience.

Hooking Up is moving along. I have 102 pages of manuscript, with an anticipated 30 to go before the first draft is finished. Then comes editing. Oh great. I love editing. Insert sarcasm here.

Hope to have some more updates or at the very least some cover art soon. In the meantime, I'll work on Hooking Up and maybe even post another chapter. We'll see. Keep 'em guessing, I always say.
