peiwritesBefore now, I’d been published in several blogs and in a few print publications like the Truro Daily News, Sackville Tribune-PostThe BuzzConvenience Store DecisionsThe Updater and Career Options Magazine. But never before have I had work published in a book.

This bad boy was released into the world yesterday. Twenty-two authors contributed to this beautiful paperback creature, including the two hard-working editors, Patti Larsen and Colleen McKie.

The official blurb:

The PEI Writes 2013 Anthology is a compilation of work by some of the Island’s writers, both established and emerging. Drawing from the talent of the PEI Writes Group, established in 2011, the collection reflects the evolving tastes and expanding creativity of each and every contributor. This anthology offers a cross-selection of both writing styles and genres, including expositional and comedic non-fiction, dramedy, young adult paranormal, fantasy, and a wide selection of poetry.

My contribution is a piece called A Short Essay and it’s semi-snarky, semi-serious. It’s about some of the things I’ve encountered as a short person, as well as some things others have encountered. Some of it feels quite personal to me, but I’m glad it’s out in the world.

You can purchase the book by clicking on the cover and visiting the little (very simple) site I made for the book.

In other news…

I’ve not been updating this blog as frequently as I would like because I’m splitting my focus between working on my novel and sewing a new garment. I finally got an invisible zipper foot for my machine and I’m proud to say I’ll probably never use a regular zipper again- this kind is so easy! Couldn’t believe it!

The garment I’m working on is from a pattern from Sew Everything Workshop by Diana Rupp. I’m making a muslin first to avoid fit issues, since I’m a bit hefty up top and in the hips. It’s quite a bit of extra work, because I’m sewing the top twice, but I think it’ll be worth it in the end.

praise for jillianne

Jillianne has done a fabulous job creating a loveable and down-to-earth heroine in Molly Miranda and followed through with a really strong plotline packed full of twists and turns.
Holly at Bookaholic Confessions
Hamilton handles the story with a deft touch, balancing action, laugh-out-loud zingers and romance with zippy pacing and a character you can really root for.
Author Kat Ross
I thought the author's sense of humor was so funny! I found myself giggling out loud.
