A Recent Review of My Book

Check it out guys...This is an email I recently received from someone who purchased my book!

Hi: LA Jefferson

I just finish reading your first novel and it was truly enjoyable from beginning to the end.

It was a page turner. I cannot wait for your next novel. Please write a murder mystery

romance I know it will be off the hook.

Keep up the good writing.



Book Heaven

Yes, I'm temporarily back to my roots--reading. Finally, things have slowed down enough for me to spend some time doing what I love. And I didn't even have to visit a library or a book store--I had plenty to choose from in my private library. As an author (Wow, I'm so glad I can say that now!), I used to feel guilty about taking time out to read because I was feeling like I should've been spending that time writing something. But NOT this time. Everybody needs a break, even from doing what they love, and this is my break. Besides, good writers need to keep reading.

Since I have so many to choose from, I decided to do something I've never done before--read multiple books simultaneously. Sort of. LOL! I've got a Patricia Cornwell audio book playing in my car, a paperback Heather Graham novel that a lunchroom attendant at my job loaned me several months ago, and a Mary Higgins Clark holiday mystery novel that I picked up just in time for the holiday season.

Believe it or not, it's working quite well. One of my book reading partners does this all the time and I just couldn't fathom how she did this without getting the storylines jumbled in her head, but it's quite easy!

Anyway, I'm enjoying this time while I have it because come the new year, it'll be time to move full speed ahead with busy book promoting (Unfinished Business) and writing my second novel, Reconciliation to Hell.

The End Is Near

NO--not the end of the world(i.e. 2012, Don't believe the hype!) The end I'm referring to is the end of the year. And what a busy and productive year it's been!

Let's recap...I released my debut novel--Unfinished Business. I made it to more than one of my Motown Writer's Network monthly meetings--a goal I set at the beginning of the year. I was a feature author at a writer's networking event. I hosted and was interviewed on Motown Literary Network's Blogtalk Radio show. And, most importantly, I officially started work on my second novel.

As the end of the year moves forward with shopping, family gatherings, and other end of the year celebrations, I'll be getting some much needed rest and relaxation in preparation for a productive 2010!
