Words on Wednesday – Introduce Yourself – Writer Linkup

Introduce Yourself prompt – Words on Wednesday hosted by Lynn Sollitto can be found here.

 

Good day,

Thank you Lynn for hosting this. Should be fun getting together. The author community is a great one, full of crazy crazy people.

Let’s do this.

About me.

I’m an indie author. I came about that decision after months of waiting for the business to get back to me; even a No Thanks would have been better than absolutely nothing. But I received nothing back, and was antsy waiting the whole time.

I looked into being an indie author and haven’t looked back since. I enjoy being an indie author because it’s very hands on and I’m in complete control of my works.

Writing wasn’t something I was into until later in my young life. We didn’t have much for free writing/story writing in school. When we finally had a free writing short story assignment in grade six, I blew my teacher out of the water. My three page recommended story was fifteen pages. I didn’t think anything of it at the time so I didn’t continue writing stories. It wasn’t until I was sixteen that I started writing stories after my mom passed away that I really delved into writing. That’s when the Dezirah Universe started.

And, that’s why two of the character start off their stories in high school, because I was in high school when their stories were started, so it was a natural move for me to make.

That was nine years ago.

In August, it’ll be one year since I published Volume 1 (a conglomeration of each of the three main characters POV stories following them during the same time period before they start gathering together) and Volume 2 was published in March. I am writing Volume 3 now, and expect that to be out in January 2018.

I also have a couple novellas: Hypocrites and Blood Mountain.

I try to write a novella in between my Dezirah books to help get out the other story ideas that don’t fit. It helps to keep things fresh and gives me a short break between Dezirah books to gather all my notes and ideas for the next book in the series.

Other than my books, I am a stay at home mom to a beautiful two year old daughter. Majority of my writing happens when she is sleeping because she’s a toddler and constantly going going going. It’s hard to chase her around while juggling a laptop, and she steals my notebook and pencil to draw if I bring those out.

As I was writing this my daughter woke up from her nap, so I am now typing with one hand with a stuffed duck on my lap, and she’s wrapping pieces of tape around my fingers.

Goodbye for now,

Jacey K Dew

 

 

Author:

What's there to say? I'm diverse in interests, thoughts, and experiences. I'm human and can be hypocritical. I can fall for fads or be too stubborn to try somethings. I make mistakes, but I learn from them (eventually). I have two cats, one husband, and one child. I have an extremely large family thanks to adoption, fostering, and marriage/divorce. Through all of that, I see many walks of life.

  1. It’s nice to meet you, Jacey. I can’t wait to check out your stories. We writers have to stick together after all. 🙂

    My kids are older but there are three of them, two of whom are very spirited, extroverted girls. What is it about girls?! Anyway, I know where you’re coming from with the limited time, though they’ve never put tape on my fingers…

    1. It’s nice to meet you as well.

      Kids are busy bees all day long. No idea where they get all that energy.

      Haha, well.. The tape was our happy medium. She wanted to rifle through my desk and play with me, but I was trying to write the post. It was a happy little distraction for five minutes.
