When you don't see me here I'm working on my one volume edition of my novel to be published 6.21.17 - On the Solstice. FRANKENSTEIN: TIME TRAVELER.. This is my original From Darkness that was published in 3 vols. However, now in one volume, re-edited with a new title, new cover, and new prev unpublished chapters as well as new writing.. A stand alone, meaning it is one complete story that begins the From Darkness Series.
TAROT-TAROT, with continuing characters, will be coming out on or about November 2017. Book 2 in the From Darkness Series.
If so pre-order links in the right side-bar. 600+ pages $0.99 for Pre-Order Until June 21, 2017
I really enjoyed creating a sister website, creating the puzzles based on two of my paintings to start with. One of my painting Angel Heart. The other painting from my Manhattan by Moonlight series - Tug Boat on East River. So many details to set up, I was so excited, and then I finally got around to crunching the numbers. And was shocked at how many I would have to sell just to pay the annual fee for the site. I never studied business so did not plan as I should have.
Now, if my day job project I had expected to come thru this January had come thru as it has for the last 4 years I could have carried on for a few months to see if there was interest that would grow. But i just learned last week that project was outsourced.
People I've worked with on my day job projects are helping me with referrals that may lead to work. But for now, though I don't mind taking some risks, I just can't justify bringing the puzzles out now. I'm so disappointed! And the puzzles and the coloring books that all took months to create, much longer than I thought, as most things do, took me away from editing my novel. I kept thinking I was close to launching the coloring books and then the puzzles too, so kept putting off the editing because I wanted a clear mind to do that. So now the novel is slated to be published not January 31, but June 21 for the Solstice.
Well, tomorrow I will dive back into Frankenstein: Time Traveler, whose characters and story I had been missing, and maybe the puzzles will launch another day. I'm so sorry for all those who expressed interest. I certainly did learn some hard but good lessons. For now I'll make some pop corn and watch a movie. Good night... - Jacqueline
Almost there. I'll keep you posted.
I will post my new website for the puzzles that will also include the coloring books as soon as site is ready . :)
I received my first puzzle from the printer & it printed beautifully! The Power of the Heart Puzzles are now in production with a website to match that will also include The Manhattan by Moonlight Puzzles with a designated email just for the puzzles! I'll need a few days to set up. Stay tuned! Very exciting!
If they printed well and look really good I will make available. No reason to think they won't but I want to be certain.
If you do let me know by a Like for this post? Thanks! I'm thinking of making puzzles of my Heart Paintings. Also my Manhattan by Moonlight paintings. See two below. I loved doing puzzles as a kid! These would be for adults or older kids bec pieces small. The puzzle is 11 x 14" 252 pieces. Nice looking sturdy tin box. Any puzzle obsessed here?
The Heart is "Angel Heart." The Manhattan by Moonlight is "Tug Boat on East River." I ordered from the printer. If they print well I will make them available.
