Once upon a time, people who liked to read a lot were called “book worms,” and the notion formed around this phrase that habitual readers were extremely shy and introverted, of course wore very thick glasses, never were seen anywhere without a book in hand, and were naturally clumsy and socially awkward and should be […]
I wanted to say thank you so much for all the comments and support you have me during the A to Z challenge. You all have shown me so much love, and I was often too busy to show any love back. Yet you all kept staying there for me… it’s impossible to explain how much that means to me. Thank you. Thank you soooooooo much.
I’ve learned my lesson… that’s for sure. Never ever do Camp NaNo while doing the A to Z Blogging Challenge while trying to keep up with the Goodreads reading challenge while writing three capstone papers again. Never ever. Lol.
I’m going to start catching up on all the comments I haven’t replied to yet. If it’s on my blog, I promise I’ll respond. I’m also going to start going back through your guys’ blogs and catching up on all the awesomeness I missed.
Again, guys, thank you. Thank you so, so much.
Another quick note… May is National Foster Care Month. So, with each post this month, I’m going to include a quote about adoption or foster care. 😉
There are some very good resources in this post that I think you all would be interested in. 😀
What social media sites should an author have?
There are so many social media sites, but does an author really need to be on all of them? Is one or more of them indispensable to the serious author or do they just clutter and waste time? And the answer is… *draws deep breath* everyone has different views. What a surprise.
From what I’ve seen, focused work on most platforms can bring in revenue if you know what you’re doing. At least there are courses on how to grow and make money on Twitter, or using Pinterest, or with Facebook ads, from people who have used these sites themselves. That being said, an author only has so much time, so you want to spend it on what works and not just throw out information and hope it draws some people in. This involves trial and error (or buying a course), analytics…

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! Thank you so much for reading! You guys are the best!!
Ok, so, I know this week was supposed to be the third Character Studies, but I thought this was too cool to not post. Check it out!
I was going to post something about a really cool app called Scripture Typer this week, but that’s going to have to wait. Compassion Blog posted a blog post that I thought was just awesome. The entire blog post is great (read it here), but the part I wanted to focus on is toward the bottom.

Hiya peoples! Thanks for stopping by!
And then my bio in 3rd person, just because that’s the way it’s supposed to be:
Jaylee Morgan is a teenage author with her sights set on publishing. She’s written short stories since–uh… um–before she can remember. Her family isn’t quite sure what to do with her (mental hospital, maybe?), as she carries around a folder that she’ll randomly open and start scribbling in. (Warning from Jaylee’s sister: when she gets in those moods, everything else disappears.) She also has several full length books (several of which shall never be mentioned).
She loves gifs. Or funnies about writing. The best though, is funny gifs about writing. Or funnies about… you know… funny stuff. The best medicine is laughter, right?
She grew up (er, is still growing up) on a little hobby farm. She was basically born riding horses and hopefully will continue to ride horses for the rest of her life. She loves, loves, loves the cowboy lifestyle and might actually write about it someday. (Right now, she’s too scared that she won’t do it justice.)
She reads. Like crazy. Don’t believe me? Check out her Goodreads. She won’t list her favorite books because that would just be mean to make you read through all of them.
You know what? Never mind. She will.
The Hero’s Guide to Saving Your Kingdom, Ranger’s Apprentice series, Brotherband Chronicles series, Insignia, Drowning Ruth, Swindle series, The War That Saved My Life, Last in a Long Line of Rebels, Mark of the Thief, The False Prince, Rebels by Accident, Robin Hood, Uprising, American Sniper, The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, Codename Komiko, Masterminds, Fake ID, The Good Theif, A Long Way From Chicago, Schooled, Seven Dead Pirates, Trading in Danger, A Year Down Yonder, and many, many more.
She thinks that she’s supposed to say more here, but she isn’t really sure what else to say. She’s said all the important things right? *ticks them off on fingers* Writing, horses, books… yup!
Back to 1st person:
Thank you, everyone, for stopping by everyone! Whether you’re a visitor from my personal blog or just checking this blog out, I hope you have a lot of fun here!
