"Yeah, because you've got nothing to prove."

 Wherein Jack has had a rough few weeks.

 I have come to the conclusion that I don't enjoy drama. I have always known this, but all the drama at my jobs lately has solidified it forever. I am very tired of drama at work. I would like to just stay in my snug Hobbit hole and never leave and write and bake bread. This likely isn't good for my though which is why I need a job, but doesn't change the fact I would prefer to not leave my house.

 I have started to bake my own bread. I love it. Everything about it. But mostly the kneading. That's the best part.

 I am working on several lovely projects. One is embroidering a dress. I find it relaxing and usually watch Tintin or Captain America while I work.

 I am still writing. If you follow me on Facebook you will have seen some hints about my new book. If you aren't on Facebook I can start posting the hints here as well. Which I should do anyway. It would help me remember to post more often.

 And lastly....CHECK THIS OUT! HERE!!!!!!!!!!!
 I am so happy with this. I love how it turned out. There is going to be a giveaway coming soon which I am doing with Jessica Greyson who also had one of her books turned into an audiobook. So stay posted for that. And as a special treat, I am releasing an Afterward Story I did from Brothers-in-Arms. I will be posting it here on my blog at the end of the giveaway.

 Now I should log off and have some breakfast before work.

 I hope all my readers are well and drama free!

"You think I can't hang posters!...It's upside down, isn't it?"

 In which Jack once again gives up being an adult.

 Who wants to join me for ice cream in my tree house?? Maybe we can watch Voltron.

 Does Jack have a reason for giving up being an adult?....Does she need one?

 Quick Life update.

 I am working on sewing a summer cloak.

 Still writing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 And more or less editing.

 Mostly though I have been listening to records and getting my yard ready for grass and spring.

 BECAUSE SPRING IS HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 Which means I can plant flowers soon. I am so excited!!

 That is all. More to come soon.

"I hope we can find the eggs in all thiis snow!"

 Wherein Jack has spent all day on the computer

 And it wasn't to write 8-(

 But it was for book work. I have been listening to the Brothers-in-Arms audiobook so I can approve the files.

 This. Means.


 The End.

 Wherein Jack got distracted.

 I was going to write a longer post yesterday but I got sidetracked writing and therefore didn't. So I posted the little one I had and went on with life.

 But have I got Brothers-in-Arms news for all of you!



"It's a good day to die!" "Not on my watch, rodent!"

 Wherein there is a snow day.

  We haven't had a snow day all winter. We've barely had any snow all winter. But march hits and along comes a merry little blizzard. So since I was called off work I did homely things. Like cleaned and made a pancake for breakfast, and stayed in my jammies until nine.

"You give hope to men." "I keep none for myself."

 Wherein Jack got behind.


 I can't tell you. It's a least for a little while. But trust me, I had a good reason for getting behind.

 Now I am here to say sorry and catch up.

 First is the lovely cover for Worth of a King. Originally I was a co-author for this book, but when I stopped writing for so long I dropped out. Can I still say it is going to be a grand story? Too bad, I just did.

 The cover is incredible, don't you think??

 The second book I got behind on is by my Kindred Spirit, Jenelle. It is the final book in her four book series.


War threatens. The game board is set. But the Minstrel is missing...

Advancing his growing power, the Dread Prince breaks free of his prison and brings a faction of dragons under his control, stirring unrest and hatred in the newly united kingdoms of Tellurae Aquaous.

When the dragon wards of Kallayohm are targeted in a ruthless attack, the High King travels there to administer justice. But the trial results in a crippling blow that leaves him reeling.

On the heels of defeat, an unexpected message from the erstwhile Minstrel arrives, pleading with his friends for rescue. Together, the High King and his companions must follow the fragile trail, braving peril and darkness that will test the measure of them all...

Author Bio (optional)
Jenelle Schmidt grew up in the northern-Midwest. She now resides with her husband and their four adorable children in the wilds of Wisconsin. Jenelle fell in love with reading at a young age during family story-times when her father would read out loud to her and her siblings each night before bed. Her imagination was captured by authors such as Madeleine L’Engle, J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, and Lloyd Alexander. It wasn’t long before she began making up her own stories and sharing them with her family. To this day she enjoys creating exciting adventure tales filled with poignant themes and compelling characters in the fantasy and sci-fi genres.
And now for the cover!!!

So cool, right?!

  Okay, I'm sorry. I have to be off. I have homework which needs done.

"We must away, at break of day."

 Wherein Jack got behind.

 I've seen things....

 Dark things....

 Black Rider things.....

 Oh yeah, and Strider. 

 Aragorn is probably my favorite character, both in book and movie. But it is hard for me to decide. Because I love everyone in the Lord of the Rings so much. Just sometimes Aragorn will say something and I will wish to be on an adventure with him.

 Sadly though I am behind on my adventure. I just got to part two. I am going to try and catch up this weekend and this evening, though at the same time I am re-watching Fulmetal Alchemist. And I sometimes get distracted - to clarify I am not watching and reading at the same time, I read and then watch some episodes and then read - but I get sidetracked because Mustang is hot....*Cough*

 I am also behind on my Narnia reading. I am only just on book two. But I can finish that one this weekend and be back on track by Monday.

 Okay, I can't think what else to ramble about. I have no new publishing news and writing is going a major overhaul. And basically I'm too sleepy to whine about the lack of publishing news and too sleepy to explain the overhaul. So that is for another day.

 Besides, Aragorn and Mustang are calling.
