I write linearly, so if where I am in the story isn't flowing, I just move on to the next scene and come back to the one that is troubling me later.

I have one scene that has been bothering me for literally years! It happens fairly early in the second book of the trilogy. The book is all but finished now, but I still haven't been able to complete that scene. It will come to me when it does. I just have to be patient.(less)

“Books say: She did this because. Life says: She did this. Books are where things are explained to you; life is where things aren't. I'm not surprised some people prefer books.”
Julian Barnes, Flaubert's Parrot

Mark Twain

Aliya DalRae Hello friends! You've found the Easter Egg! Your clue word is Pen!
(Wondering what's going on? Check out my all day FB takeover on Easter Sunday at https://www.facebook.com/groups/18100... )

description


Jennifer Thompson Shelly,
I am so happy to be able to finally write this and tell you that after four years of ups and downs, tears and milestones, THE SCENT OF A SOUL is ready for reading consumption! :-) It has been quite the journey, but well worth it. Please feel free to visit my blog at http://jenniferthompsonbooks.blogspot... to see if my book is a perfect fit for you, or you can find my book at Amazon.com. (I am working at getting the Kindle version up and running, but it might take a while.) Sharing this with you is a highlight for me; I hope you enjoy!
Jennifer,


Jennifer Thompson Shelly, I wanted to thank all who might have voted and/or visited my blog to participate in some way with my book cover voting for THE SCENT OF A SOUL. The votes were cast, and I am excited to invite everyone back to view the winner at http://jenniferthompsonbooks.blogspot.... I hope to see you there.
Jennifer


Jennifer Thompson Shelly,
Thanks for adding me as a friend! It's always interesting to me to learn what others are reading and what they think and recommend. Looking foward to yours. If you get the chance, I'd love it if you visited my blog at http://jenniferthompsonbooks.blogspot.... Right now, through September 20th, I am conducting a vote on my book cover with the three finalists. I would love your shared opinion on them. Hope to see you there. Have a great one.
Jennifer
