Popular YA author Jenni Frendswith talks about the roll-out of her books in paperback, including the much-anticipated THIS YOUNG JESUS Vol. I. She talks about the future of the series, other projects, paperback vs. ebooks and life at new house Blujesto Press.

Q: Jenni, your books seem to be coming out all over the place! I liked your recent interview for your poetry book, HAIKU FOR YOU. Is that not coming out in paperback?
A: Well, I do still have a few books that are Kindle exclusives at the moment. I suppose it’ll be up to Blujesto Press if they see paperback or not. They already spend so much time and energy on me and my books, I feel badly that I’m dominating their attention. But they seem to be pretty attentive to their other writers.
Q: They just put out the third novella in your series THIS YOUNG JESUS. PANTHEON saw a supernatural battle between Jesus, Joseph and Annabelle and the Roman Gods themselves.
A: Yeah, it was a great third book, a great way to wrap up the first “season” of that series. I really like THIS YOUNG JESUS, which, for those who don’t know, follows the teenaged Jesus as he travels through ancient...

My fellow writer and Blujesto Press author Lucretia Mars discusses her new Kindle book series, GASPERS, starting off with a trilogy that is, in may ways, too hot to publish. She and Blujesto are presenting new and innovative ways of getting his controversial work to the public.

Q: Lucretia, tell us a bit about your new Kindle ebook series, GASPERS.
A: GASPERS is a kinky, erotic novel series with a crime story subplot. Or else it’s a crime series with a kinky, erotic subplot. They’re pretty well balanced.
Q: I don’t mean to pigeon-hole it, but it’s a bit like FIFTY SHADES OF GREY, with asphyxia instead of bondage.
A: No, I’ll buy that. I mean, these days, bondage itself is kind of vanilla, kind of mainstream. I mean, it’s common on primetime TV, how taboo could it be? Erotic asphyxia is much more complex, much more fringe. And it integrates perfectly to the sex-crime aspect.
Q: Somebody’s going around smothering women.
A: Well, that is putting it a bit simply. In the first book the focus is on a dominant / submissive sexual balance with the woman in the sub role, and from the point of view of the...

Ok. This may be hard for some to read. I'm 15 and I really feel like books saved my life.

1. They're always an escape when things get low.

2. They took me places I thought I couldn't ever go.

3. When I used to get beat up, I could just open a book and feel better.

4. I didn't have to talk to a book, it told me a story instead. (I suffer from severe SAD or Social Anxiety Disorder)

5. They let me live in a different world for a while; I could try to forget all the problems I had.

6. When I lost my aunt, I would pretend I could still see her in the characters I read about.

7. I never felt scared reading a book; I always felt like I could lose myself in a good story.

8. I used to get bullied really badly, and a book always helped me not think about it.

9. The kids who took my things and pushed me down didn't exist in books.

10. When I was contemplating suicide, I just read a good story book and I didn't feel like that anymore.

Hi there everyone!

I'm a writer and I'd love some international support for my story that I already gave to my favorite actor Colin Morgan personally as a gift. He inspired me for a certain character and it was given more as a sign of gratitude for the inspiration rather than for him to read it. No idea if he ever would, but I just hope the effort I put into translating it just for him made him happy that day. What a brilliant actor ^^ Anyways - I've created a club and this account itself for communicating with future readers. I don't want to bother anyone with it, but how else could you let people know your story even exists before it's published?

I promise I have put a lot of effort into it! It took me three years to create this world and the characters. Maybe you'll fall in love with "The Golden Heart". I'm striving for an international release of the book and what I need for that is support, support, support and lots of love!

I love everyone who tries to do the smallest thing to help!

By Edward Fairfax:


After interviewing authors Lucretia Mars (GASPING IN THE SHADOWS) and Jenni Frendswith (STONECRAFT) I interviewed the author who hosts both books on his website, Fletcher Rhoden, whose new nonfiction book is FIFTY SHADES OF TRAILER PARK BOYS: TPB in the Great Comedic Traditions. In the interests of full disclosure, my own book VIEWS OF A PROGRESSIVE CHRISTIAN is also hosted on Rhoden’s site at www.fletcherrhoden.com/links. Rhoden’s complete catalogue can be found on the PRODUCTS page of that site.

Q: Thank you for speaking with me today, Mr. Rhoden --
A: Fletch, please.
Q: -- Fletch, of course. And thanks for hosting me and my colleagues at your site. It’s been terrific exposure.
A: Happy to do it. Thanks for spreading the word about it. I’m happy to host other authors the way I do you and Lucretia and Jenni. They only have to contact me at the address posted all over my site. I offer purchase links, cover pictures, maybe interviews like these.

I was lucky enough to be able to sit down with Jenni Frendswith, the author of the new novel Stonecraft, now available on Amazon.com. Her book is a part of a web-hosting program at the homesite of author Fletcher Rhoden (fletcherrhoden.com/links) where there is contact information and a discount code and link. In the interests of full disclosure, my own book Views of a Progressive Christian is also on the site.

Q: This is your first book, Jenni. What made you want to write, and why this story?
A: Well, I’ve always been a reader, read just about anything I could find. I guess it’s taken me this long to get up the nerve to write something myself. As for why I chose this story for my first book, well, I didn’t really have ten stories to chose from. This one just kind of popped into my head, and I liked it and I liked what I thought I could do with it, so that’s the one I wrote. I’m not sure I would have written anything at all if I didn’t have a great story to begin with.

From Rear View Mirror blog c/o Cindy Calinsky


If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to run sound for a rock-n-roll concert, EKKO will place you in the drivers’ seat and step on the gas.

The series is based on a rock band that has just started a major tour across North America. But this isn’t your typical sex, drugs, and rock-n-roll story; it’s all about the adventures of CJ, our protagonist, who has a hunger for paranormal adventure.

After a hike in the forest one day, CJ returned with a device that has taken his craving for the unknown to a whole new level. He lost his parents at an early age and since then he’s searched the paranormal world hoping to find them. Now that he has a way to cut a few corners, he dives headfirst into the unknown. What he discovers is a blessing in disguise.

The rock band hits the road and the dynamics of a working tour start to unfold. As with any working environment, a road tour also has its share of egomaniacs and dysfunctional personalities. Each man has a job to do and keeping up with the pace is tough enough, but things get really interesting when CJ starts...

I highly recommend this book: Edenbrook by Julianne Donaldson.

I've never read a book this good. It had my stomach churning and flipping and I swear I reread every paragraph a kajillion times, I couldn't get enough. It is a page turning, intense, action filled romance.

Here's the catch: it is during the regence era (like old England, Pride and Prejudice). BUT don't let that scare you off. The author writes in a way that twists modern writing and makes it feel old and rustic. It isn't in that big fancy writing where you have to look up every other word and read the sentance twice just to understand what is going on. Its very straight forward and to the point.

Marriane Daventry is thrust into the dangers of life. She has to keep her newly found secret safe in order to stay safe from evil men after her and her secret. A invite to a grande estate in the country is the perfect answer to her problem. While on the journey there, her carriage is attacked where she escapes to an inn. She meets a desperatly handsome stranger who seems to be holding secrets from her. Who is this stranger? What does he want from her?

As we got closer and closer to the huge beautiful place my heart beat started to get faster and faster I can’t wait to see my brother again. Kyle what did I miss sense I been to cardamina asked Emma? Blake is getting stronger but we have no idea what he is planing but it is something big. I know I said bitterly. You know what? Said Kyle. What Blake is planing. How in the world do you know that? The reason I am here in the first place is because Blake kidnapped me to hack my father’s computer. When we wouldn’t tell me what he wanted with those files I decided to find out myself. I downloaded his entire hardrive on a flash-drive witch gives me basically his computer.

His mouth dropped. There is no way… I cut him off and took out the case I had with my flash-drives in it. You don’t believe me fine I show you I switched sides in the carriage thing we were ridding in. plugged the flash-drive in and put in the password. See right here is the plan he came up with last night to capture me again. Unreal Jason is going to freak we have been trying to get some kind of info on Blake for so long with no luck you show up for no more than two days and get his computer...

sorry it took so long here is chapter four.

The night was cool and dark. You can’t even see three feet in front of you. It is a good thing I want them to see me. Otherwise I would have fell over a hundred times because of those tree roots. And above all I have the worst possible luck because my flashlight is dying. It flickered once twice three times and I am now left in the dark. I threw aside my disappointing flashlight and picked a good tree and started to climb.

I was almost half way up the tree trunk when I heard barking. Is that a dog? Then I saw a blinding light in the darkness. And then I heard them two voices having a argument about what is the best way to find me. And next to the one on the right was I big massive pit-bull. He was growing at anything that moved. Luckily they had no idea I was right above their heads. I mean really they have no reason to think I would be in a random tree in the woods. So my hiding spot was prefect. But if Emma made one sound that dog would probably attack her. I had to get rid of that dog.

Chapter 3

I stared in horror at what was in Blake’s computer I didn’t see this coming. What have I done? I felt like I was going to throw up. I can’t believe what I just gave him I am so stupid! I sighed me beating myself up is not going to change anything. All I can do now is find my brother find out what is going on and stop Blake before it is to late. What are you waiting for it is time to come up with a plan to escape this nut house.

I took a flash drive and copied everything on Blake’s computer. I made sure there was no tracking device on the laptop double-checking found it clean than I packed it up. I got a box and a sickey note. I labeled each of my flash-drives. Mine my fathers and Blake’s and put them in the box. Next I hacked into the security system. I downloaded a map of the place on to a GPS and put it on my belt. Hopefully I will be able to disconnect the cameras. Speaking of witch I have to do that to my room right now. I rewound the cameras so it played the last two hours I spent doing and put it on loop.

when we left off in chapter one we found out that blake has something planed for alex but does she have what it takes to escape before it is too late. read to find out.

Chapter two

As we walked down a long never-ending hallway. I decided I wanted answers. So where are we going I asked Blake? Do you want to stay in that white room? No I replied. We came to a stop. And he handed me a key. Then here we are this is where you will be staying. Go ahead do the honors.
I put the key in the lock and twisted it. Grabbed the handle and opened the door. I am not going to lie the room was beyond cool. First off it was huge like two apartments big. And there was a king-sized bed, a walk in closest full of clothes and a kitchen filled with snacks. But what I found odd was half of it was for life and the other half was filled with papers, computers and pretty much a room with any and all technology known to man.

Let me guess that is what you want be to sort out for you? Not exactly but close. We walked in the world of tecno geek. What I need form you is to unlock your father’s computer and all it’s secrets. What is so important on there...

I peaked though the crack and saw nothing but blackness. Carefully I lifted the led and managed to slide it sideways I stood up. I swung my legs over the edge and hopped down. Ok Alex now all I have to do is find out where I am sneak out without the nut job that kid napped me knowing. I started to walk off when I thought about the create. When they see it open they will know I escaped. I quickly ran back and slide the led shut. Hopefully they won’t notice me gone and I will have more time. With the led perfectly back on the way it was. I started to walk away again when I heard voices. Are you sure she can’t get out? Said a deep voice yes sir and there is no way she can get untied too. You did not harm the girl right I promised the boss she would not be harmed. Fear overwhelmed me. I quickly ducked behind some boxes.

Questions so many questions ran though my head. Who is the “boss” why did he send people to kidnap me? Does my mother know I am gone? Is anyone looking for me? What do these people want with me? The door opened then interrupting my thoughts.

Hey guys I'm writing a story for a project and I want to know what you guys think of what I have so far feel free to leave comments or suggestions.

When I was a little girl my dad suddenly left. I remember being really close to him. Sometimes he would act strange though. Like he never stayed in one place long and was always looking behind him like he thought someone was following him. And one day he said he had to go for a little while, and he never came back. He was the best father I could ask for. He was kind and always did what was best for the family. And that is why it broke my heart to find out that he wasn’t coming back. At first I didn’t believe it and I didn’t want to. The only thing I wanted was my dad to come though the door and tell me everything is ok. Life went on without him days turned into months. Disbelief turned into betrayal and sorrow. If it wasn’t for my brother Jason I wouldn’t know what I’ll do.

A two years later my mom gave up hope of his return and married Robert T. Harry. That is a lot to put on a eight year old hey your father left and he doesn’t love us anymore but don’t worry I am going to marry I guy I...

I READ: because one life isn't enough, and in the pages of a
book I can be anybody;

Meaning that books are an escape path. It doesn't matter if you are the mousy girl that blends into the background. Or the boy who is never seen without a book. When you read, you become someone else, whether you realize it or not.

I READ: because the words that build the story become mine,
to build my life;

Meaning that you learn when you read. It doesn't, matter if the book is fantasy, or realistic fiction, or science fiction, you'll learn something from it. Take 'celerity' for an example. ten bucks says that no one knows what it means. Celerity is a synonym for rapidity, or speed.

I READ: not for happy endings but for new beginnings; I'm just
beginning myself, and I wouldn't mind a map;

Exactly. some of the best books have sad endings. Like Old Yeller, or Where the Red Fern Grows. Bittersweet endings. Without those types of books, there would be no variety. We would end up with happy endings everywhere, and life isn't like that. Sometimes a dose of reality is healthy.

The book cover for Pride and Popularity.
Every girl in Farmington, New Mexico is in love with Taylor Anderson. Well, almost everyone. Chloe Hart is the one girl who can resist Taylor's charm. Why doesn't she swoon when he notices her? One reason: He's popular.
.....................
No guy has ever taken interest in Chloe. She's more focused on her dance classes and paintings than any boy. But when Taylor Anderson is stuck sitting at her table in art class for the entire year, she doesn't know how she'll survie!
.......................
Author Jenni James turns Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice into a story of two high school students unsure about their feelings for one another. Will Chloe's pride get in the way of finding her true love?
.........................
Was this book well written? Yes! I loved the fact that pretty much everyone can relate to this story.

Dkagencies|Indian Books|- Indian rock-cut art has over two-millennia-long history – dating back to the 3rd century BCE. Scattered across the subcontinent today are about 1,500 cave temples. Which include the widely-celebrated monuments at Ajanta, Ellora, Nasik, Udayagiri-Khandagiri, Kanheri and other places. The caves in Ajanta, Ellora, Bhaja and Karle are simply awesome for their massive proportions and are, unmistakably, the marvels in stone. They legitimately count among the glories of India’s cultural heritage. Profusely adorned with masterpieces of sculptural art – the frozen version of Indian religious philosophy, these giant cave temples stand in striking contrast with the earliest-known tiny caves in the Barabar Hill, in the Gaya District of Bihar link.

In Israel, the lives of three women interweave with the story of their country. Ratiba, an Israeli journalist, turns her back on her heritage to marry an Israeli Arab. Her sister Orit, an actor, lives alone and longs for her lost sister. Elisheva is a nurse who dedicates her life to the wounded and the dying. As their lives unfold, the three women find themselves facing choices they would never have envisioned.

This is a story of secrets and alienation, yet also of hope and heroism. It is about Arabs who save Jews from disaster and Jews who heal Arabs. It is the story of everyday people torn and desperately searching for the right path.

Here, the ancient pulsates in present time and the biblical holds prominence with the secular. Beneath this modern-day drama unfolds the story of a land and its people, revealing the historical trajectory of two peoples, victims and perpetrators of a biblical curse.

Eric Andros is the young son of a German fisherman who covets the power and riches to be had from life in the fast lane. Numbers always came easy to him and in the fertile environment of University life he is able to learn and test many of his theories about the path to becoming the richest and most powerful man in the world.

He begins to formulate a future plan for financial domination at the expense of the capitalistic systems in effect in the United States. Additional partners from around the world seek to associate with Andros as he preys upon the human frailties of the country's leaders including the man sponsored by Andros and his associates, the President himself.

The puppet President is merely a figurehead for the financial cabal maintained by Andros. However, a patriotic group from across the business avenues of the United States has begun to organize in response to the fears of what they see taking place. The common opinion is that the presence and influence of Andros must be destroyed and they organize under the leadership of Roland Southfield to remove the President from office as he seeks a second term.

"War is not women's history," Virginia Woolf observed. But when confronted with it, members of that sex have summoned levels of courage and resourcefulness to rival those of any military commander. In A Train In Winter, Caroline Moorehead focuses on a group of women worthy of particular awe, both for the bravery they demonstrated and the brutality they endured.
The title refers to a vehicle that in January 1943 transported 230 women — all members of the French Resistance battling the German occupation of their country — to Nazi death camps. They ranged in age from 15 to 68, in occupation from scientists to housewives. Many had already lost husbands, lovers and other family members; by the end of World War II, only 49 of the female prisoners themselves remained.
Moorehead, a biographer and journalist noted for her emphasis on human rights, traces the lives and deaths of all her subjects with unswerving candor and compassion. The book is divided into two parts; the first is drier, carefully tracing the individual backgrounds of the women (most of whom were not Jewish) and the circumstances that led them to risk so much. Committed communists and Gaullists and naïve...

In 1897 England, sixteen-year-old Finley Jayne has no one…except the “thing” inside her. When a young lord tries to take advantage of Finley, she fights back. And wins. But no normal Victorian girl has a darker side that makes her capable of knocking out a full-grown man with one punch…
Only Griffin King sees the magical darkness inside her that says she’s special, says she’s one of them. The orphaned duke takes her in from the gaslit streets against the wishes of his band of misfits: Emily, who has her own special abilities and an unrequited love for Sam, who is part robot; and Jasper, an American cowboy with a shadowy secret.
Griffin’s investigating a criminal called The Machinist, the mastermind behind several recent crimes by automatons. Finley thinks she can help – and finally be a part of something, finally fit in.
But The Machinist wants to tear Griff’s little company of strays apart, and it isn’t long before trust is tested on all sides. At least Finley knows whose side she’s on – even it if seems no one believes her.
