Editing is fun!

Well here I am editing, editing, and editing again. It seems I always have more to add to my stories. I want them to be the best they can be. I’m putting my all into each story I write for you readers out there. My stories are very eclectic in style and content. There are stories for everyone from toddlers to adults. My goal is to reach all ages and encourage everyone to read new authors on Smashwords and other ereader Indie authors. Keep watching for more news of my venture in writing and publication.

I discovered a very good author recently on Twitter. He has two books out and I read them both within a week. His name is Richard C. Hale. His style is fast paced and the dialogue is easy to read and inviting to the reader. His characters are endearing and believable. I found myself getting involved with the story line and caring about what happened to these characters. Check out his website and his twitter page. He is a very witty and talented person.

I have met a lot of very nice people on Twitter such as author Richard C. Hale above and another author, Chris Geiger, who has written books about surviving cancer. He has helped many people handle their ordeals with this dreaded disease. Bless him.

I feel encouraged by all their words to continue working on my dream to be an author too. The story I am working on currently is a murder mystery about a young woman. I hope to get this book completed for publication to Smashwords soon. Keep watching for more news about its availability and how to buy this book. Also one of my many children’s books is being illustrated and will need a publisher. Any interested agents or publishers out there who want to take a chance on this avid writer? My website is jemsbooks.com.

Check out my Facebook and twitter pages for updates on books and reviews. Keep reading to your children daily. Always remember – Reading Gives You Wings To Fly!
