My deepest apologies for slacking on this blog all summer (and now giving you a Spice Girls earworm). Summer in the desert isn't the most productive time as it's usually so hot, every living creature finds rocks under which to hide. While that's not a good excuse, I'm going with it.
Still, I did get a few things done. A new project with 7DS Books called KAPOW! (Kick Ass Powerfully Original Women) is finished and in edits. This is a two-fold project with seven different authors writing short stories of Super Villains first, then the Super Heroines who vanquish them. My baddie is Vibora (Spanish for viper) who rather enjoys playing with poisonous serpents. Her counterpart is Diamante, Bearer of Light. They are sisters; in fact, they are twins. Opposite sides of a coin from a marriage gone horribly wrong. Fun to write, I can hardly wait to see the finished product.
I have a NEW website [which will eventually link to my old domain name]on Wix: http://judejb.wix.com/jude-johnson. I like how clean and professional it looks, and was fairly easy to set up. Feel free to let me know what you think about it.
Next, I finished my four short story collection, Key Connections, which is now available on in print and Kindle formats. These are tales of when people find a link to one another, either by friendship, mentoring, or love. Some stories have been previously published and are no longer available while one is totally new. A book for those whose time is limited, it will make you smile, tear up, and hopefully laugh. If you read it, please be so kind as to leave a review.
Thanks for sticking with me through the long, hot dog days.
Happy Writing and Reading,
