A Place in the Heart

The Vast Landscape has a place in the heart, all its own.

Never. quit. your. dreams.

A touching, humbling reader comment.

‘Jackie~ for quite some time I thought you were the main character in your well written book, full of emotion. I know now you are not but perhaps bits are you ! WOW! The intense sensitivity throughout the middle of the book brought me to tears several times. (and not just an occasional tear but I’m talking that ugly cry!) Your ability to elicit such pure and deep emotion is incredible. “Perception is not always reality.” “The love of a solid man priceless.” and “Lose the load and gain the insight.” ~ Heartfelt advice that resonated with me. I enjoyed it and look forward to Georgia Pine!’

Grass roots marketing, a friend mentioned the other day. Yes, I suppose The Vast Landscape is just that. I am just stubborn enough, crazy enough, ambitious enough to believe I could self-publish a book. Those of you who know me, understand living with mental illness is no joke, any step forward and out of the house is a huge accomplishment. Thanks for coming out, for the humbling support. The Vast Landscape, the novel’s appeal is for the reader to decide. For me it’s solid, rock steady and the skin I’m most comfortable in.

At Your Local Bookstore

Walking into my local bookstore with a stack of my books, was another scary, gratifying, humbling, indie author adventure. On a good day, I’m in sweats, zero makeup, typing away. When I started writing The Vast Landscape, I never expected the amazing, overwhelming, heartwarming, visceral response to Harrison, and her story. The book, my book sits on a bookshelf next to John Green, Donna Tartt, and yes, E.L. James, in excellent company. So, while I hate to dress, apply lips, concealer and blush, go out into the real world with my cardboard box of dreams, I do. In spite of the million and one reasons not to, insecurities, horrible PR & Marketing skills, hand tremors and anxiety. I do it because no one else can & my bestie tells me I have toBig dreams start small, one by one by one. I am Indie proud.

Support your local bookstore because, they’re smart.
