Friday Highlights 74

houseHouse of Cards SPOILER ALERT: So, ‘Frank Underwood’ (Kevin Spacey) is President. I feel like everyone in TV land should be afraid lol. Okay, I won’t say anymore on that for now, because this week, before we get to the updates, I want to highlight a blogger that is worth checking out :).


Ernesto San Giacomo shares with readers at his blog San Giacomo’s Corner. There you can find a variety of interesting reader-friendly posts on all kinds of topics about writing, life and even a recipe or two thrown in for good measure. Some have made me laugh out loud while keeping me grounded with their deeper message and, with author interviews, links and excerpts from his own work, why not take a walk over to his corner of the blogosphere ^_^: ‘right here’

Before you head out though, here are this week’s . . .


kick11) Was stuck on the same chapter of the epic fantasy WIP for a few days, as I’m still working out kinks. I’m thankful that these kinds of pauses are a rarity, but look forward to this one being over, especially when I can see other parts of the story easily progressing. Yes, I know, I can write another chapter for now, but I wanted to kick down this obstacle before continuing on, especially in the event that what I decide on impacts the next chapter in any way.
chapter_12) Next week Saturday, March 1st, 2014, I’ll be releasing the prologue and chapter 1 of Awakening, the first book in my science fantasy trilogy When Worlds End on Wattpad – ‘(Jackie Jones on Wattpad).’ Each Saturday after that I’ll be releasing a new chapter of the book and I’m definitely looking forward to seeing what readers think. I made this decision after a long time of debating it and believe it’s the right one for this book right now.
silver3) Still not on my A-game but continuing to get better. It’s weird for me as I’m so seldom sick and sometimes if I feel even remote symptoms of what had me laid up, I feel like ‘oh no’. However, I’ve been learning to keep calm and not freak out at the slightest thing when it comes to my health, so once again — silver lining :).

That’s all for today, I wish you all a wonderful weekend :). Be safe, happy and share the good vibes with others ^_^.
