My Interview with Daphne Clarke-Hudson!

So, some while ago I was interviewed by a certain Daphne Clarke-Hudson- she’s the host of A New Day, and somehow I managed to forget to post the wonderful conversation we had a while back to my own blog; today, I remedy that situation. Below, I’ve embedded our interview- in it, I talk about Me Squared, what inspired…

The Winds from Above the Portal

A little while ago, I accepted a challenge: write a novelette inspired by a randomly generated pulp sci-fi title. After plenty of hard work and procrastination, my novelette, The Winds from Above the Portal, is finally finished! The Winds from Above the Portal is the story of Johanna Lenine, a teenage girl whose astronomer father takes…

Josephine’s Job – Finished!

Update: You can download the story for free here: Josephine’s Job – Jourdan Cameron Remember the short story I posted at the last minute of 2013, Josephine’s Job? Well, that was the initial draft of the story- rough, unfinished and in need of help. What I present today is the final draft of Josephine’s Job– a…

The Trick to Writing Strong Female Characters

In literary circles, I often see people asking for advice on a wide variety of things- writing prose that isn’t purple, when to get started editing, who to contact for a cover (I recommend Book Covered), and sometimes, how to write strong female characters. With regard to that last question, I’ll impart a bit of…

Josephine’s Job

UPDATE: I’ve gotten quite a bit of feedback on this one- I appreciate it, and just want to point out that this story hasn’t been edited or revised- it’s something of a peek into Josephine’s everyday life, and it’s something that I’ll revisit at some point to improve. I wrote it rather quickly, and it…

Latest Happenings and a Press Release

As of late, I’ve been hard at work spreading the word of Me Squared. I recently held and event at my local People’s United Bank, which has a special spotlight for local businesses. The event went pretty well; plenty of people got to hear about my book, and I’d really like to thank the folks…

A Postmortem of My First Signing

In the video game industry, developers will often have “postmortems” of their games- they explain their development process, what they did right, and what they could’ve done better. I’ve decided to borrow the concept to examine my first book signing, which took place during the Nutmeg Book Festival. If you’re an author (or looking to…

Me Squared – Out Now!

After eleven months of hard work, I’m proud to announce that my first novella is finally out! Me Squared is now available to purchase on Amazon- you can buy the physical edition or you can purchase the eBook– whatever you prefer. Right now, I’m very excited, and I’m getting ready for the Nutmeg Book Festival–…

I’ll Be on Television Soon

As I count down the days to the Nutmeg Book Festival, I eagerly await another great event: my first television appearance here in the United States. While I was on television once in Antigua (a short story for another day), my first time here in the USA will be on A New Day, a television show…
