Well folks, the summer is winding down. School is starting back up again. Real life is making more demands than ever. I’ll admit, though I do feel I got a lot done this summer (books published, books sold, books read, a few events, etc…) I probably did a lot more playing and a lot less working than I should have. Oh well. That’s what summers are for.
Regardless, it’s time to dive back into the professional world. I have two books that I’m working on simultaneously (on chapters 8 and 4, respectively) and along with focusing every bit of attention I have on making these next two books the absolute best I can, I also need to be sure to keep the momentum going on the first two Cemetery Tours books. I’m thrilled with how well both have been selling this month and I’m hoping it keeps up, especially with the haunting Halloween season right around the corner! I have three events scheduled for the next two months, and I’m hoping to book at least one or two more. That’s a goal I have for next week.
This week, I’ll admit, I’m going to be playing a bit more. I’m going out to visit my best friend from high school in San Francisco. I’m really excited, but at the same time, it kind of doesn’t feel real yet. It feels like I’m going in like, three weeks.
In book news, I recently finished Inescapable, the first book in the Premonition Series by Amy A. Bartol. It’s called Inescapable and I actually stumbled across it at a local bookstore. I picked it up because I saw that Ms. Bartol used the same printing company that I use and I thought, Hey, I like supporting my fellow indies.
I loved it! I really want to read the rest of the series, but I’m waiting until I finish a few of the other books waiting to be read that I have lying in a pile on my bedroom floor.
I also recently read A Time to Reap by Jonas Lee, also the first in a series. I’ve not read many sci-fi/futuristic time-travelling books, but this one was very enjoyable and a fast-paced read.
Finally, I also got to read the second book in my friend Melissa Zaroski’s series, Davenport Manor: The Living Weapon. All I can say is if you like vampires, you’ll enjoy these books. I kind of wish that I was friends with all the characters. And the book ends with a cliffhanger, so you know you have to keep reading the next one.
I love that the last three books I read and truly enjoyed were written by indie authors. Just saying.
Finally, Cemetery Tours received an AMAZING review from Carol Allen of StarAngel’s Reviews. Her words actually gave me chills. You can read the review here: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/1010042491?book_show_action=false&page=1

Well, with all that being said, I’m going to go get to work! Have a good week!
Congrats on the sales, Jacqueline! I’m looking forward to finishing your book this weekend while I’m on vacation!
Yay!!! Thank you, Jonas! 😀
Congratulations on the great review from Carol! I’ve been meaning to read your book for a long time but time gets away from me 😦 I hope that you are well 🙂
That’s okay! You wouldn’t believe all the books/ebooks I own that are still waiting to be read! I hope you are well also! Thank you, Jenny! 🙂
