Hello…..I’m back. Have I been gone you ask? For shame. You know you missed me (types Needy Jaye) I haven’t been anywhere exactly. But in a blue/grey/empty kind of a place for a while. Between Trump and a bad case of the flu, I have had a very hard time climbing out of the “Idontcareaboutanythinganymore” and (coincidentally) the “IwillneverwriteagainImnothingbutanotalentfake” Pit Of Despair. (Those of you who are aficionados of The Princess Bride are excused for chortling)BUT……here I am again.I have missed you although I have been lurking around the corners and you may not have seen me. Stealth Jaye. And the writing is baaaaack. I am pleased to report that ‘Calamitous Magic’ will be appearing in early 2017 – February or March-ish. (MARK THOSE CALENDARS!!) and another, new venture, will be appearing even sooner. I am just waiting for the artist to finish her sorcery……watch this space! And even more exciting is that I will be in Chicago for Christmas….and this makes me happy dance with large exuberance and very little grace! So things are looking up, as they always do. Even though we have some serious things to work out, I am choosing to be hopeful instead of hopeless and to use my voice. The apathy of feeling overwhelmed cannot make any difference, only when I speak out can I try and make a change or make a stand. Nice to be back, nice to see you all and most importantly – I bid you all Peace.
