Whew! DONE! I've just finished my 8th Book!

I can't believe it! I'm still shaking with excitement. But you read it here folks, that's 8 books in the year and nine months since I started writing.

Yes. In case you're wondering, I'm freaking out!!!!

Now it's on to the fun part--EDITING!!!



  1. Firstly, congrats. Hug yourself, happy dance & chocolate party. You deserve it.

    Nextly, I have just one question: how? Didn't I read once that you had 7 kids & was pregnant with another?

    I think you are superwoman and I can just lie quietly in my nameless grave now...

    But before I die a bookless, unpublished death, I wonder:
    Do you see the sun much? Do you eat microwaved meals? Who does your shopping for you? Or are you just a natural born ninja writer? Aspiring authors (like me!) would love to know.

    And, as always, write on!! :)

  2. Congratulations! I'm suffering through trying to finish my first draft of my first novel. You are definately a Superwoman!
    What is your secret?
    Just for that you get an award on my blog :)


    Congrats again!

  3. I said it on facebook, but it's worth saying twice. Congratulations and woo hoo!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. You are super-woman! How on earth do you do it?!

    Congratulations! :-)

  5. I am proud to say that I know Superwoman! YAY YOU!!!

  6. Congrats! There's absolutely nothing like writing THE END. :)

  7. I knew you were amazing but i'm starting to doubt that you are human. You are able to do too much. :) Congrats girl.

  8. So when are you going to e-mail me the cover and a blurb of your book... so I can put it on my blog and talk about how great it is and just gush on and on about you.... I am waiting! I think I am coming to see you in Jacksonville, FL I can't wait!

  9. Woo hoo!!! Congrats! You're on fire! :)

  10. Way to go! Now you you just have to have your seventh child and train for the Boston marathon... ha ha ha...

    I'm kind of curious about the microwave meals and the shopping too.

  11. In one year? WOW!! I'm speechless. Congrats.

  12. Terresa--LOL! You crack me up! And uh, First, I'm prego with my 7th--and I have 6. LOL! Um, I'm not a fan of the microwave--LOL! i actually love to cook. I see very little sun though! And my house misses my old cleaner self.

    Christine--Aww--thank you for the award! Your blog is so cute too! Congrats on writing your first novel, that's always the hardest!

    Nisa--LOL! YOU rock! Thank you!

    Shannon--I think you (& about 10 other people on twitter) have just given me my idea for my next blog post.. stay tuned!

  13. Caitlin--I'm more like superdork, but thank you! LOL!

    Elana--Man I hear you! I LOVE the end!!!

    Amber--LOL! I wish I wasn't quite so human at times! LOL!

    Tiffany--As soon as I get my cover I'll send it to you! And YAY! It would be SO awesome to see you in florida! Eeeh!

    Renee--Spoken from a woman who writes as much as I do! Thanks!

    Laura--LOL! Good grief. Boston Marathon? Yikes. I'm so not a runner... I can't imagine that torture. Yes, I'm a wimp. OH! And since I started writing, my hubby does most of my shopping from a VERY specific list. LOL!

    Kimberly--Yikes. One year and nine months... But thank you. I'm a bit speechless myself.

  14. Wow - very awesome. I'm still struggling through my first novel. You are a writing machine.

  15. Wow Congrats, that takes a lot of work. Bravo! I wish I had your conviction or proliphery? Is that a word? Proliphery, because you're prolific? Well anywho a very large congrats is needed, and I think you should stop by my blog because you're one of my blogging friends and I've given you all an award! So CONGRATS!!!!!!! (again and a thousand times over!)

  16. Way to go Jenni! That is an amazing number of books in such a short time. Good luck with teh editing.

  17. Wahoo! Congratulations!

    Now, take a deep breath and relax for a minute. :P Let the rest of us catch up.

  18. You are freaking amazing. Good luck editing..

  19. Awesome-ness. :) I love the high of finishing a book. It's been a while for me.

  20. Brilliant. Well done!

  21. Eight books in less than two years?!? You are an inspiration!

  22. Jenny, congratulations! I am so proud of you!! :)

  23. I think Jenni neglected to tell the rest of you one thing...she's CRAZY!! That's how she wrote 8 books in less than 2 years. Does that solve the mystery? If not, let me just add that she's amazing and my goal in life is to be at least half as crazy as she is!!

  24. Congrats! That is super exciting and so awesome. I'm in the process of editing my first novel and I feel like it will never be done! I only have two kids at home and I'm having a hard time balancing that with the housework! How do you do it?!?

  25. Catherine--Thank you!

    Bethany--Thanks, still freaking out!

    Mary--the sluggish middle is always the worst, hang in there--it goes super fast once you're close to the end.

    Hayley!--Thank you! You're such a sweetheart! And I LOVE that word. *grins*

    Jessie--Thank you! Finally finished editing, so now I can breathe.

    Jenn--LOL! You crack me up! But I think I'll follow your advice!

  26. Patti--You're pretty amazing yourself!

    Kasie--I hear you! It was 6 months for me. It is nice.

    Candice--Thank you!

    Angie--LOL! NO, just insane.

    Elizabeth--Spoken from a girl who writes probably faster than I do!

    Nikki--LOLOL! I love it!
