Jennifer Silverwood was raised deep in the heart of Texas and has been spinning yarns a mile high since childhood. In her spare time she reads and writes and tries to sustain her wanderlust, whether it's the Carpathian Mountains in Transylvania, the highlands of Ecuador or a road trip to the next town.
After attending three different universities without managing to square a degree, she decided to the next logical thing; become a writer. Always on the lookout for her next adventure, in print or reality, she dreams of one day proving to the masses that everything really is better in Texas.
She is the author of the Heaven's Edge and Wylder Tales series, Stay and Silver Hollow. To stay tuned, please have a gander at her website: jennifersilverwo

Happy New Year! Hope everyone had fun with friends and family over the holiday! We enjoyed the family and friends side of it, the sudden plunge into below freezing weather? Not so much lol.
Last year my family went through a crazy year of accidents and health issues, but thankfully everyone's happy and healthy now. I learned a lot about writing - namely - don't try to write five books at one tim... Read more of this blog post »

“Do whatever comes your way to do as well as you can. Think as little as possible about yourself. Think as much as possible about other people. Dwell on things that are interesting. Since you get more joy out of giving joy to others, you should put a good deal of thought into the happiness that you are able to give.”
Eleanor Roosevelt

Thanks Belle! Hard not to enjoy it lol it was just awesome. Saw that you're working on a sequel and love the angle you're taking on it! Don't get overwhelmed, just stick to it. At least I'm hoping you can avoid writer's block because I wanna read the new book asap! lol

Susan Ee Hi Jennifer,

Thanks for the friend request and your sweet note. Re your question about writing, I talk a bit about my writing process in this interview on EW.com. I recommend freewriting exercises. I find that gems magically appear when I freewrite. Keep writing and push your boundaries! I'm rooting for you!

Best wishes,
Susan

Thanks so much for the encouragement Susan :) I'm checking out that page you linked. Thanks so much for the vote of confidence. It means so much hearing from people who've "got there" you know? Anyways, can't wait for book two!
Happy writing,

A new book? :D Same old, same old. Nothing exciting happened yet. I'm reading Slaughterhouse Five and it's super boring! I might not get to finishing it... I'm hoping to start Dare You To and If You Find Me over the weekend. I've heard amazing things about both books!


Jennifer Hey girlie! Yep! You can actually check out the synopsis up above listed as Vynasha! You will like it :) Oh man with a name like Slaughterhouse I'm surprised it's not somewhat thrilling at least. Guess it went the way of the "Saw" sequels, huh? I need to check those books out! I've been finishing up the last of the Unicorn Chronicle books by Bruce Coville. So glad I finally get to finish this series like fifteen years later, lol

They are good! Oh man, well I have to admit I've been guilty of doing that in the past. Sometimes it's just hard to get through those school assignment reads. :[ Hope you have a great weekend! I've got more revisions and research planned here, and I'm about to start the long haul :)


Derrolyn Anderson Hey Jenn! Yes, I decided to re-do my covers and thought I'd give myself something to aim for... Now comes the hard part ;)
Your author page is looking awesome & Vynasha sounds really good!

Well the covers look great. I'm positive that these look best, though the first were good too. But these are more minimalist and I always like seeing series characters on the covers of these kinds of books. :) Aw thanks! Just trucking away at it as usual, you know? And I think you're gonna love Vynasha once I get it ready to pub :D How close are you with the sequels?

I'm only about 1/4 of the way into #3, but I'm an optimist, and I hope to get both of them done by Christmas.
Thanks about the covers - They're super basic, but I still need to work on my Photoshop skills, and it's easy-peasy to rely on stock photography.
I think you're covers are AWESOME, mysterious and atmospheric, and I hope to go a little more abstract like that in the future...

Exactly! No reason but to be a positive thinker ;) I had every intention of finishing Vynasha pt1 before July but life had other plans. Sometimes you just have to take things as they come and write when you can, as I've been recently learning.
So wish I had your skills with photoshop! I know it takes a lot of discipline, but worth it once you get it all together.
Aw thanks! Though I certainly can't take credit for my covers, that's all Najla! But you should check out some cover artists like her on Deviantart. I know a lot of them have tutorials you can look at for some of the more complex stuff. :)


Derrolyn Anderson Hey there!

It's been a cruel summer so far (har har 80's reference), but I'm hanging in there. Looks like you're still fighting the good fight too and that makes me happy.

Above all, we must not quit striving :)

And yes, I'm sucking up 80's stuff (what a blast from the past!) like crazy. Watched "Valley Girl" last night, LOL.

Hey! Sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you. Aw sorry the summer hasn't been so hot ;p But keep on trucking! It's hard sometimes for me to stay positive with so much competition and just stuff we have to keep up with on a daily basis. But you're right, we have to keep moving like a shark...or we'll die, lol.
Haha I bet! What kind of 80's chick were you? Big hair and leather pants or more of a Molly Ringwald? Oh man, love it. You should watch The Carrie Diaries! They do a great job of showing 80's with a modern cast. :D
