DJ Jamison grew up in the Midwest and worked in newsrooms for more than 10 years, which came in handy when she began writing novellas centered on a series of love connections between small-town Kansas newspaper staffers, their sources, and their readers.

When she's not laboring over her works of fiction, she's blogging and tweeting about books, reading books or doing that other dreaded thing: her day job.

Keep writing, and don't walk away when you're discouraged. Finish your projects.
I still feel like an aspiring writer. I'm self-published. No one shook my hand and told me I'd make a most excellent author, and that's a scary thing. I took a leap.
I spent years toying around with unfinished manuscripts. You know what got me out of that rut? I decided enough was enough, and I committed to a publish date. Even now that I've published my writing, I still use pre-orders not just as a marketing tool, but to force myself to finish my projects. Maybe it's the former journalist in me, but I need deadlines.
So, try giving yourself a deadline. But don't make it a soft deadline in your head. Commit to sending your work somewhere: to a beta reader, a friend, a book agent or online to Smashwords or Amazon Direct Publishing.
Try writing novellas instead of the great American novel to start out. Finish a shorter piece, and you'll figure out some of the formula for finishing a longer one. You'll also prove to yourself that you can finish it.
Then comes the hardest part. You have to set it free.
Good luck!(less)

I’ve just wrapped up my whimsical little Anti series of novellas! My Anti-Marriage, the third installment, is available on Amazon and Kindle Unlimited now!


My Anti-Valentine, the first in a series of sweet m/m novellas, was written kind of spur-of-the-moment. I wanted to write a gray ace character I could relate to personally, and a Valentine’s Day giveaway prompt called for stories. It was perf...

D.J. Jamison I have a FB group! If anyone's interested in joining, I post snippets from books -- try to keep them short so no spoilers -- updates on my projects, flash fiction and giveaways! Everyone's encouraged to post about new authors they've discovered and books they are reading, as well. You can join us at DJ and Company: https://www.facebook.com/groups/18027...

D.J. Jamison I've been working hard on edits to get "Earning Edie" ready for its April 1 release. To keep myself motivated, I'm going to share some fun factoids.

Here's the first one -- and some of you may have figured this out -- The Espinoza Boys series is actually a spin-off of the Ashe Sentinel Connections series. You don't need to have read Ashe Sentinel Connections to start this series, but if you have, you may just see some familiar characters.


message 4: by D.J.

D.J. Jamison Changing Focus will be free on Feb. 5. So if it's on your TBR list, grab a copy for free on that day. All four books are also available through Kindle Unlimited if you have a subscription.
Changing Focus (Ashe Sentinel Connections, #1) by D.J. Jamison


message 3: by D.J.

D.J. Jamison "Rewriting His Love Life" is free for a limited time! Grab a copy of the third book between now and Dec. 17, if you'd like to read it. I hope you enjoy.

And in case you missed it, "Winter Blom," my fourth book in Ashe Sentinel Connections, a winter novella, was released Dec. 10.


message 2: by D.J.

D.J. Jamison I've started working on Book 4 of Ashe Sentinel Connections. I am simultaneously working on a fantasy/paranormal series, so we'll see how that goes. Plotting is hard. (Yes, I'm whining!) For those Ashe Sentinel series readers .... Book 4 might not focus on who you'd expect.


message 1: by D.J.

D.J. Jamison Just a head's up: There was a mix-up and "Changing Focus" was downloading as the incorrect book on Amazon for a while. This has since been corrected. If you visit Smashwords, you can download "Changing Focus" in whatever format you need. It's free. So sorry for the snafu! I hope you'll keep reading.
