Novels, NaNoWriMo, and Me

Having taken a short break from my blog, it is now time for an update.  I am currently participating in NaNoWriMo, which stands for National Novel Writing Month.  As part of this program, I have made a commitment to write 50,000 words during the month of November. Only three days into it and I am over 5,000 words.  Woo hoo!

I am simultaneously working on the sequel to Never Coming Back, which will be titled Never Forget, as well as the third book in the series, tentatively titled Never Give Up.  Additionally, I am writing short stories that will be offered exclusively through my new Members Only Writing Subscription.

Members Only Writing Subscriptions include a monthly newsletter, keeping subscribers up to date on the latest status of my writing, as well as my reviews of work from other authors of note. Additionally, members receive access to the new short stories, sequential scenes from Never Forget, and random scenes from Never Give Up.  Each piece will come with an Introduction, so readers will always know what type of writing they have received. Maintaining subscriptions for 12 months, or signing up for an annual subscription, entitles members to receive an autographed copy of Never Forget or Never Give Up once published.  Or the member can choose to receive a coupon for a free download of the book to a Kindle

If you are interested in signing up for a subscription, you can find all the details on the subscription page of my website, Jansen Books.

Other membership levels range from Introductory Membership (newsletter only) to Gold Membership (which includes having a character named after you!)

Thank you so much for being a loyal reader, and I hope you seriously consider signing up for one of my new subscription plans!  


A Request

I haven’t written in a long time, and I know there’s no excuse. However, I have been working on my books. Yes, that’s right, books. I self-published my book, Never Coming Back, as both lesbian fiction and as erotica on Amazon.com. Here’s where the request comes in. I have sold over 100 copies, but the regular version has only one review and the erotica version has only one review. If you read either and liked it, would you please review it for me? Amazon won’t promote your book if you don’t have reviews. And remember, 3 stars should mean it was all right. Unfortunately, the one reviewer I have on the erotica version didn’t understand that and gave me 2 stars for a mixed review. That brings down my rating. I appreciate all the reviews I can get.

Good News to Share

I just wanted to share that my new book, Never Coming Back, which I wrote during NaNoWriMo 2010 and published direct to digital with Amazon.com, just made it to #99 on the Bestsellers in Lesbian Fiction list and #17 on the Hot New Releases in Lesbian Fiction list.  I don’t know what drives the ranking, since I have only sold 12 copies so far (in 3 days), and I have no customer reviews yet, but it sure does feel good.  Basking in the feeling until I get bumped back down.


My work on the sequel continues…
