If you’re ever needing a quick but thought-provoking read, check out The Giver by Lois Lowry. You know those times when you’ve got maybe five minutes between picking one kid up from space camp and dropping another off at a friend’s house, or ten minutes after work, before you’ve got to fix dinner and/or clean the…

Whew! My site was down temporarily, and I was stressing out! My apologies. My domain hosting company had somehow put my site on a different server, connected to a different account, but the problem has been fixed. I spent the time scouting for deals, though, because I get excited thinking about bringing them to you…

What would you do if you were a teenage girl and the only survivor of a car wreck that killed the rest of your family? What if you survived the wreck, but just barely, and you’re somehow conscious, in an out-of-body way, and you have to choose between letting go, not being able to discern…

I’m no fan of Black Friday, but I can totally get behind Cyber Monday and Giving Tuesday. And this year, instead of spoiling my kids, I’ve decided I’m going to be a better parent and spoil myself. I’ve already got my Cyber Monday Wish List of great deals on stuff I want put together. Here’s…

Posted in , , ,

It’s been a tough few months, I tell you. Life has been very interesting, in some ways very good, and some quite bad. I’m finally getting over my insomnia, something I’ve struggled with for years (see this post about what it’s really like to live with it). I’m enjoying my job as a full-time book…

What It’s Like to Live With Insomnia

By Jamie | November 16, 2018
Posted in

I’ve suffered from insomnia for at least two decades. This means that, for at least 3 or 4 nights out of every week, I either have trouble falling asleep or wake up frequently during the night. When insomnia goes on for that long, it tends to “co-exist” very closely with depression, and becomes cyclically related…

American Family, A Review and a Giveaway

By Jamie | November 5, 2018
Posted in , ,

Sometimes it’s hard to put a finger on why one likes or dislikes a book. Other times, it’s easy. For me, as a professional book editor, frequent book beta reader and reviewer,  and writer, it’s easier than it might be for some. That doesn’t mean, however, that if I dislike a book, it’s for reasons…

Posted in , , ,

It’s been a busy week getting ready for Halloween, but also one in which I also received a lot of encouragement from my writer friends and reworked my synopsis for Forced. I’m excited to embark on the 7th draft of that manuscript, with a plot that is now more intricate and truer to my character’s natures.…

Top Ten Books to Get Your Reluctant Reader for Christmas

By Jamie | October 22, 2018
Posted in ,

When my kids—who are now 15 and 9—were younger, I read to them every night at bedtime. And they both used to be good readers. As they’ve gotten older, it’s become harder and harder to muster the energy to fight them to get off their screens for the time it takes to read to them,…

Do you have a teen or tween gamer? Are you already starting to panic when you think that Christmas is less than 100 days away and you haven’t figured out what to get him or her? Or are you a mom gamer, like me, who is putting together your own wish list of items to…

Life continues to be interesting. At times like these, I’m so grateful for the listening ears of family and friends, for my life, my kids, my health, the fact that I’m sleeping much better than I have in years, even the fact that I can’t keep a pair of sunglasses to save my life. It…

At Least It’s Not as Bad As…: 10 Books That Can Inspire Gratitude in Hard Times

Life has been tough for me lately! I can’t go into detail because my struggles involve someone I love whose struggles run deeper than mine and I don’t have his permission to share, but it’s made it a little hard to keep on schedule with posting. When times are tough, it helps—nay, is necessary—to be…
