What’s the easiest–and yet worst–way possible to bring down a plaster wall? Hop on over to Chick Lit Plus for an excerpt from By Design (not the excerpt in a previous blog post, a different one–more of the story! wewt!) to find out!
Oh noes I’ve discovered Pinterest. Ruuunnnnn! Run, before I pin again!
But while you’re here, g’head and check out my board for By Design. I usually operate back-asswards, so I didn’t use it to collect ideas for the book—I kept those in my head as I was writing—instead, I put it together afterward, just for fun. I’ve got some pics of celebs who kind of look like some of my characters, as well as some of the houses that play such a big part in the plot.
Although By Design isn’t out for a few more weeks yet, I’ll be really interested in hearing from readers later whether they pictured the elements and characters of the book the same way I did, or totally differently.
So okay, here’s my first foray into Pinterest. I have a sneaking suspicion it’s not going to be my last…
Hello. My name is Jayne Denker and I’m an iJunkie. I write my novels on my beloved MacBook Pro, which I got after I murdered my MacBook several years ago. Okay, that was manslaughter—one drop of water dribbled into the keyboard and…and…I—I’m sorry. I can’t talk about it even now. So let’s move on.
I have an ancient iPod (turquoise) that I can’t bear to part with, so it’s collecting dust in a drawer. An iPod Touch. An iPhone. An iBoob (iMac) that I still use occasionally, although it’s dog slow. I dream of getting an iPad, but my bank account laughs at me. Someday, though—someday!
I should note that I am bilingual when it comes to computers. I know how to speak PC and I will use one if I have to, but I prefer not to. I’m a sucker for happy little Apple products, and I’m not ashamed to admit it.
So imagine my joy this afternoon when I found out that my books are going to be available through iTunes for iPads, iPod Touches, and iPhones! (Wait…how can you possibly read a book on a phone? I wouldn’t, but it’s nice to know it’s possible.) It’s true! I can’t give you a link, because they’re not listed on the Apple site yet, but if you go into your iTunes, open the Store, and throw my name into the search, there they are, under Books>Romance>Contemporary! It’s a miracle, I tells ya!
So if you’re one of those lucky individuals who has an iPad, just know that, thanks to my iEnvy, iHate you. But you’ll be able to read both By Design and Unscripted on your beautiful tablet when they’re published. If you read them on your iPod or iPhone, well, you’re a far, far braver person than i. (See what i did there?) But enjoy, all the same.
