Starting from the Back

For a while, That’s a Jenn Story and The Pilgrimage blog are probably going to be carrying mostly the same posts. Because they’re relevant to both of them. #AlltheReadership, the Readership. #AlltheReadership.

Who knew that even publishing for oneself could be such a drawn out process? Probably good that the book release party for Favored One is in September and not any earlier, but we have a cover! And this is the back of it.

What the Readers Thought

Reviews for the original, pre-Pilgrimage novel, for your consideration.

The Like of God

I was loved as a child. I know I was fortunate in this, and I think I even knew it then. I was loved by my family, I mean, which I suspect is the main thing, in childhood. I had a little more trouble at school, though, and somewhere along the way I picked up…Read more The Like of God
