About this author

Don't miss Jami's next release! Sign up for her newsletter at jamigold.com/mail to be notified when her next book goes on pre-order and sale!

After building a Fortress of Solitude from books in her to-be-read pile, Jami Gold moved to Arizona and decided to become a writer, where she could put her talent for making up stuff to good use. Fortunately, her muse, an arrogant male who delights in causing her to sound as insane as possible, rewards her with unique and rich story ideas.

Fueled by chocolate, she writes paranormal romance and urban fantasy tales that range from dark to humorous, but one thing remains the same: Normal need not apply. Just ask her family--and zombie cat.

White flag with text: What Does It Mean If We Surrender?

I know this is an odd topic for the post right after my debut novel release yesterday, as my release proves that I didn’t give up. *smile* But I also had a guest post at the fantastic Adventures in YA Publishing blog yesterday that talked about the danger of discouragement.

The context of the guest post was mostly about the kind of discouragement we can encounter if we start writing young. In...

Gah! *wipes away happy tears* Stories like this are why Wendy Sparrow is on my auto-buy list.

I love Angela and Becca’s The Emotion Thesaurus, so I had high hopes for their new Trait books but didn't see how they could live up to the ET. I’m happy to say I was wrong. These two additions are fantastic resources for writers.

I'm picky with novellas because it's so hard to create a story that feels complete and has well-rounded, believable characters. The shorter length also means any little problem is more noticeable.

But this story was perfect. :)

I saw this story in an earlier form, but I didn't want to write a review until I'd gotten a chance to read the finished version. Yes, I paid for the real version, even though I'd already read most of it before. :)

Jeanne is on page 66 of 73 of Talking Sense About 'Fifty Shades of Grey', or, Fanfiction, Feminism, and BDSM: "If Ana were ever to decide she’d been conned and seek to divorce Christian, citing his BDSM behaviour as coercive, not consensual, the courts in very many jurisdictions would take her entirely seriously (a Fifty Shades fanfic I’d really like to see)." Me too!
