Have you ever work hard to perfect something and then just when you're almost done, you realized that something was wrong?
Waah! Pity on me!
I've spent about two hours fixing Sparks of Attraction's book cover, instead of writing, just to have an intense feeling of deja vu! Sparks of Attraction was first published on Kindle (it still is the only place now) and I was an idiot who didn't think about the paperback version while I was creating the cover art. Now, I'm finally ready to start with the paperback cover and felt terrible to see that I have no bleed area.
Oh god. No wonder it was familiar! As you can see her top and waves on her hair is different, but shadows are the same.
According to the file properties, I finished retouching it during the holiday. The reason I probably forgot because my head felt like mash from the cold. Ugh. Next time, I'll stay in bed.

I've been blogging for years now, but I'm still feeling a bit apprehensive because this is my first post--at least here in my new website. I have been meaning to separate my "reader" and "writer" blog for a while now, but it's hard to start it. Imagining myself trying to manage two blogs seems hard. But when I think about it that's what I have been doing exactly that this whole time! I've just never thought about it. Before moving here to Weebly, my website was I tried to make do with having two bloggers blog and used one of them as my website.
But the thing was even if it appeared as one blog I am managing two (actually more than two) blogs, and before that was even more of a mess.
However, with my homepage just the way I want it, and my blog upgraded into what it is now, I decided my old wish come true.
Starting today blog.jessicaelarsen.com will be my personal blog. And when I say personal, I mean that I’ll be using it for primarily to fill your ears with my random ramblings. Make you sigh and hopefully smile with reviews of the books I’ve read and nonsense blah, blah about movies, anime, etc. While this blog will feature anything that had something to do with my books. A place where I will not only talk about the challenges I’m facing as a writer, but I’ll also be sharing my book excerpts, news and much more. I won't be importing any of my writing entries here from 2015 all the way back. I'll let them be where they are now. This post will be my first sign for change. Do that make sense? Haha :D
This is where I talk about the challenges I’m facing as a writer. I will be sharing book excerpts, giveaways, personal events and well, anything about my writing.
