Hello everyone! Just 2 days left and it's July, so it's hot, hot, HOT here on the Mediterranean coast of Spain. I'm willing to share some of this heat for a late Spring temperature hu hu hu...
So here's the number 1 hottest news. Even though motherhood (and other life crisis) had substantially decreased my time and inspiration to write, I have two ongoing stories that I will be sharing online.
One is titled More Than Hate which I'll be posting in both Radish Fiction and Wattpad. A story of Kamala, a Filipina prostitute who fell in love with a man who only has his eyes for her secretly bitchy coworker. Not that Kamala would take it laying down of course. This is a "cellphone novel" novel, so every chapter is only 250 or fewer words (about a page).
The second book is a Filipino romcom about a snobbish 19-year-old who fell in love with her college professor. She a bit of a bitch who doesn't care even if the guy has a girlfriend as long she gets him. This will only be in Wattpad under the title "I bet, in-love din siya sa akin".
Wow, that's two bitchy characters in a row.
Both of the stories are written in first POV. It will be live July 1, 19:00UTC at Radish and Wattpad. It will be updated weekly (unless my inspiration runs out). Note: These stories are draft version so expect typos and (possibly a lot of) grammar mistakes.
News no. 2! I'll be joining Smashwords Summer Sale starting July 1! And the following title will be free to download.
For English stories: Making Him Fall, Sly Prince, and What Took You So Long ~ Minsan Pa and Someone to Care for Filipino/Taglish
I'll greatly appreciate it if you can help me share the words out! Till next time <3
As you all know (if you're an FB friend or been following me on my fan page for update), I practically haven't made any progress my WIPs lately. But lucky for me, I have a pile of finished manuscript to edit.
But of course, self-editing is never good enough, especially if you will not be sharing it for free. So imagine how happy I was when my first fantasy novel from Fumes Variola got accepted into Radish Editorial Program? I think I dance around our living room. To top it off, even though I have no idea who my editor is, I'm personally glad to have her or him edit my work. The editor is good at catching embarrassing errors.

A lot of my time is spent with my 3-month-old son every day, so much I barely take a bath (eww, haha :D ) but even if my writing progress is EXTREMELY slow, I’m finally getting back on track. If I may say so, I feel quite proud of myself for managing to finish Shadow Prince, the second book of The Flame Squad.
On another update, I’ve long waited to be able to share my Radishfiction profile ever since it was announced, but it wasn’t until now that I get the chance to share it.

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.
