Disruption Audiobook!

By |2017-08-29T16:15:26+00:00August 29th, 2017|Disruption, J. B. Jamison, Writing Fiction|

Well, it looks like the last time I posted I was talking about recording the audiobook for Disruption. As I write this post, that audiobook has just been released on Amazon/Audible, audiobooks.com, and is soon to appear on iTunes and several other places. Between that last post and this one...wow...I've once again learned a lot. [...]

Ahhh, Editing…

By |2017-07-23T15:20:16+00:00July 23rd, 2017|Disruption, General, J. B. Jamison, Writing Fiction, Writing for Early Readers and Listeners|

While there may not be any real "secrets" that work for every author, I found one of mine this week. Like many other writers I hear from, especially those attempting to self-publish, doing the formal editing of the Disruption has been a real challenge. I did several initial edits myself, used a top-rated piece of [...]

Writing Disruption: Location, Location, Location!

By |2017-07-11T21:01:51+00:00July 11th, 2017|Disruption, General, J. B. Jamison, Writing Fiction|

After "Where do you get your ideas?", the next question I'm usually asked is "How do you get all of the details? Have you been to all of the places you write about?" For Disruption, I've been to a few of the places in the story, but not all. But even in those I have [...]

More About Towboats!

By |2017-07-11T21:02:13+00:00July 11th, 2017|Disruption, General, J. B. Jamison, Writing Fiction|

They really sometimes are invisible to us as they move through our cities and along our rivers. I saw the news about the towboat sinking this week, and as I read about it, I found stories of other recent sinkings, collisions and allusions (your vocab word for today) that didn't make the news. There [...]

Hooked By A Book!

By |2017-07-07T22:39:15+00:00July 7th, 2017|General, J. B. Jamison, Pops Jamison, Writing Fiction|

I believe it was around the fifth grade when it happened. We had to go into the school library and pick a book to read for an assignment. I was not enthused. Oh, I read a lot...my stack of comic books was the envy of all who saw it. But a "book"? My teacher sensed [...]

Just What IS a Towboat?

By |2017-07-03T16:29:16+00:00July 3rd, 2017|Disruption, J. B. Jamison, Writing for Early Readers and Listeners|

There are container ships, tankers, tugboats and more, so just what is a towboat? Here is a photo with a very basic explanation. This photo shows a 'boat' pushing a 'tow' of 'barges'. These are covered barges, maybe carrying grain or other cargo being protected from the weather. This might be a typical [...]

What can you do when you love to paint everything, but your dog just loves to run? A fun story for earlier listeners and early readers. I really enjoy seeing nicely done illustrations in books. However, one of the goals of this book is to show that you don’t have to be a professional artist [...]
