This is the Blog/Forum for Jude Liebermann, romance novelist.
I probably won't be writing anymore stories on Vocal.media, so here is the link to my profile there. I have 16 stories/articles, so I'm sure you can find something you'll enjoy:
In case no one has looked, I not only sell my books at my store, but also crocheted items, like dolls, hats and now a coin pouch with an included 16 GB flash drive. Check out what's for sale at http://judesplace.com/store.
I've decided to release the Maple Creek books as one book on my site. Since there are no fees to pay anyone else, I'm able to offer it for a lower price, only $2.99. So head to my store at http://judesplace.com/store to buy your copy in PDF, epub or mobi.
The second book of the Maple Creek series, A Camp for Gods & Monsters, is available at Amazon and Smashwords (which will publish on most online booksellers within a day or two).
I just published the 1st installment of Maple Creek last night. You can get it for free at Smashwords now, and it will be available at most online bookstores soon. The 2nd installment is still in the editing stage, and I will make another post when it's available.
Good news! I finally finished writing the first draft of Maple Creek. It's so long that I've decided to split it into two parts. The first part will be free, and the 2nd part will be listed at $3.99. I'm playing with what to call the 2nd installment. The first one is "A Camp for Gifted Teenagers", and I'm thinking the 2nd one will be either "A Camp for Gods and Monsters" or simply "A Camp for Gods...or Monsters?" I'm actually leaning towards the latter.
Hard to believe it's already September. I'm still working on Maple Creek. It's almost 75K words. As I write, I keep coming up with different ideas, so it's getting longer than i initially planned. I'm considering cutting it in half and giving the first part away for free. Not sure yet, and it will depend on how long the finished book is. It's definitely evolved from the original story, and I want to make sure all loose ends have been tied. I'm going through the book now to find those loose ends and will then begin working on the final act. Stay tuned.
I saw an ad for a contest about a little black book, and I have submitted two stories (so far). If i can find the time to create another story before the deadline, I might submit another one. Please visit and read my submissions (and any other stories I might publish in the future. Here is the link:
