Hello May! What’s Up at Jewel HQ

Writer’s Diary for Author Carolyn Jewel – Romance Author With A Few Opinions

Just a quick post to say hello and give an update on life and writing. Bound in Smoke is going pretty well. I’m at about 50K new words with most of the updated rejiggered story in place. The usual self-doubt is there, of course. I can’t speak for all writers, but I know time and […]

Fall Greetings!
