Teaser Audio Clip for THROUGH THE LAST DOOR

Sharing a teaser clip from the soon-to-be-released audiobook for my m/m fantasy novel Through the Last Door, narrated by the super-talented Dan Calley. Hopefully it will be just a couple more weeks before it's available, depending on how long it takes to get through the QR process on ACX. I can't wait to be able to share it with all of you!!! 🥰

Just in case the clip doesn't play for you, here is a direct link to the video.

Rosemary Chicken Salad Sandwiches

Hey all! Hope you're having a good Monday. Just got back from the doctor and while one leg is healed the other is trying to get infected again so I'm on antibiotics. Again. Hopefully, we've nipped it in the bud before it gets bad this time. We'll see.

Other than that, not much going on with me this week. I'm boring. I have a phone appointment with my regular doctor but I don't need that much so I doubt it'll be a big thing. I've been enjoying having my windows open despite it being cool. It's nice to have some fresh air and hear the birds chirping.

Here's this week's recipe. Again going for something light and picnicy. Is picnicy even a word? LOL. Hope y'all like it!

Almost there! :D

I just finished listening to the final chapter recordings for my m/m fantasy novel, Through the Last Door. Dan Calley's narration is absolutely amazing! Hiring a professional voice actor for the narration was definitely a choice I don't regret. His voice is completely absorbing to listen to, and the way he brings the characters and scenes to life is absolutely amazing. It's been an incredible and slightly surreal experience to hear my characters and scenes brought to life like this, and in such a brilliant and beautiful way. I'm so very excited about it. :D

Now we're moving into the production phase. This part will likely take a few weeks, depending on how long it takes ACX to approve the final audio files. I'm hoping it won't be very long. The audiobook will be available very soon!!

Book Cover and Promotional Design

Over the past few years, I've begun designing my own covers and promo graphics for the books I've been writing. It's something I really enjoy doing! I love the creativity of trying to capture the atmosphere and theme of a book in visual form. The more I work with these kinds of images, the more I find myself loving it.

From conversations I've been having with other authors, not everyone feels comfortable designing their own graphics for the books they write. So I'm extending an offer to create book covers and/or promo graphics for my fellow authors (and other creative types!). I'm really excited about this, and I'm looking forward to seeing what we can come up with for your visual designs together. ♥

Here are some examples of the promotional graphics I've created. You can click on the images to see a larger version of them:



There are more samples on my Graphics Design webpage here:

http://jajaken.com/design.html


The fee I'm charging is US$25 per cover design, plus the cost of whatever paid stock images you decide to include. The price includes both an e-book cover and promotional graphics for your book.

If you're interested in starting a graphics project, send me an email at jajakenfiction@gmail.com and let me know what kind of design you're looking for! :)

Now I've seen everything ...

[personal profile] lunabee34 had you seen this? I know you like perfumes, and well, Star Trek. Now you can have both!

Pon Farr Perfume.

Because wearing a perfume that only gets you laid once every seven years is a thing now. Apparently, there are also men's colognes. Including one called Red Shirts.

I just ... I have no words.

Pesto Pasta Salad with Tomatoes and Mozzarella

Hello all! I'm sorry I'm so late posting this, I got busy this morning. It's a bright sunshiny day here, it's in the '70s! Very nice! The flowering trees and bushes are starting to bloom. I'm getting used to my new smartphone and slowly learning how to text. I don't think I'll ever be comfortable on it, but I can at least get texts from people and not feel like a dork now.

Max hates drinking water out of a bowl so I bought a cat fountain for the little booger, that'll come in the mail tomorrow and I'm hoping I can put it together easily. We'll see.

Other than that, I'm doing well. Not much going on this week. Only two doctor appointments this month, and one of them I can do over the phone. I'm getting rested before I have like, six appointments next month. That is going to be fun. But for right now I have a nice, easy month going. I'm very thankful for it.

I figured it is getting to be pasta salad weather! Here's one that looks so easy even I could do it. LOL.

Have a great week everyone!
