Profile Information

Something About Me and My Book:
My first novel ‘Fixing John a Drink’ was finally completed in January of 2006, but being self-critical I re-worked the manuscript and finally completed the novel in March 2008.

Wanting to explore other avenues of myself, I began working on my first erotica story ‘Two-Play’. My second novel, an erotic story was written in 2006 under the pen name of Deborah Jaqson and was published by Carnal Desires Publishing in March 2008.

As a child I had always known that I had creative abilities. I began writing from a very early age (around 12 years of age) and found I had a passion for putting pen to paper. I grew up with two brothers who were extremely talented Artists. As I was not gifted in that way, I discovered the art of writing.
I have written scripts for plays, poems and horror stories, as a young woman.

I am an Image Consultant living with my husband and children. I am currently a work in progress, attempting to complete several novels including an erotica romance novel.

Being a Writer is no joke

I know first hand how difficult it is to write consistently. Sometimes, the lack of good ideas, tiredness, fatigue and stress can really make it a hard task. If you have writing in your bones, then focus, become totally undistracted, engrossed and lost in your writing world, because, once you allow something to get in between your dedication, its either ruined or delayed.

Time Out!

I've been a little relaxed this past week as my sister-in-law and other relatives have paid us a visit. Its been great having them around, because i didn't realise how much i needed them here.

I managed to put in about 1 hour's time into revising my novel, but i'm not putting any pressure on myself. When they go back home next week, i'll have to get my manuscript up to scratch, so that its finished before the end of the year.

Till next time....

Feeling motivated and Positive!

So, i took the Promo Day conference and came away with tons of information, which i hope to put into action, so that my books can be published. I'm reading, reading and reading, wanting to absorb as much as i can.

The funny thing is, right about now my brain is slow and my eyes are slowly closing. I wonder if a couple hours of shut eye would be my solutions?

A part of me is dying to sleep (figuratively) and the other part is telling me not to waste any more time and to pull myself… Continue

My First Time

Hi everyone,

Ok. So i've decided to try this blog thing. Don't know how much i can actually write to keep you interested, but i'm going to try. I joined this website and a few others, hoping to Advertise and Market my book (s). I never thought trying to get people to my work would be so dang hard. I was excited when i completed 'Two-Play in 2006 and even more elated when i took the risk of sending out my manuscript.

When i say risk i mean risk, because at the time, i… Continue

I believe erotica sells better with electronic publishing, or at least that's what I'm told. Have you thought about uploading it to Kindle? The instructions are pretty easy.
