Jessa Callaver's Blog: Thoughts, Impressions & Random Ramblings with JC

June 1, 2014

Though unable to focus on my manuscript (so is the life of a writer/editor), "Working It Out", and putting off its fine-tuning for the umpteenth time...I have reached at least one memorable milestone by way of social media.

1,000 Followers on Twitter! Wooooo hoo! So thank you Twitterville, or whatever those in the Twittersphere are called.

I honestly have no clue what that means in the way of fanship or actual interest in my work, but...it means something...right? Either way it's cool beans. :)

RIP Gabriel Garcia Marquez

https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

Some quotes of his I love:

"A true friend is the one who holds your hand and touches your heart."

"No matter what, nobody can take away the dances you’ve already had."

"Humanity, like armies in the field, advances at the speed of the slowest."

"No medicine cures what happiness cannot."

"The heart’s memory eliminates the bad and magnifies the good."

"Los seres humanos no nacen para siempre el día en que sus madres los alumbran, sino que la vida los obliga a parirse a sí mismos una y otra vez."

You will be missed...

Would anyone be interested in betareading a piece for me? It would be the follow-up to my contemporary erotic short "The Very Thought of Him" and is about 40+ pages long (little over 22,000 K). If you've yet to read the first installment, I would be willing to give you a coupon code for it on Smashwords.com.

Thanks to the help of benevolent writer/author friend, I've managed to join the 21st e-literary century...and can now be found on Twitter:

@JessaCallaver

And at my new website:

http://jessacallaver.wix.com/jessacal...

A work in progress, both, but give me time and I promise to blow your mind! (That has to be a music lyric so I'll just concede and thank the artist (whoever it was) now for the loan.))

Anywho, hope you'll check me out in these two new e-venues! Oh and keep on the look out for my new mailing list coming soon!

The 3rd edition of "Family Care" hits 100+ reviews on Amazon!

Take that, voices of censorship! ;)

Yet again the big guys are at it. Amazon Kindle is deleting and blocking Kindle titles that feature erotic themes and suggestive content. It's unreal.

http://www.the-digital-reader.com/201...

It apparently seems to be acutely targeting the self-published at the moment. So SP'd authors beware.
