Just wanted to drop you a quick note to keep you updated on what's going on with me since the last time i wrote. Okay, so here it book release party/birthday celebration was on March 14th and it was a success! There was almost 500 people there to show their support and party with yours truly and it was definitely a night to remember! The event was decorated so nice and it almost looked like i was gettin married but i'm not even close to (the right man has to come along first before that happens) and i wore two dresses, a royal blue one and a black one. I'll post pics later...the event in a nutshell was fabulous and i even had a chanel purse cake that was red velvet!

Okay so with that over and behind me, I'm still keeping it moving...i've been working real hard at marketing and promoting myself and it's a full time job if i say so myself...I'm trying to do everything I can to make sure I'm seen and people know to go out and by my book. I've been doing pretty good so far but the book has only been out a month so i still have work to do...I think the biggest thing so far is getting these bookstores to call me back and Im persistent so after a while they're gonna get tired of me so they'll have no choice but to book me for a signing. lol...i know im crazy, but would you still love me if i was boring...

Well today im on my way to Nashville and i'm so excited. Im going for music but you know i always find a way to sell books so, every opportunity is a chance to hustle a book or two or

I will write back once we arrive in Cashville....

Love ya lots,

It's finally here!

Dear Diary,
I wanted to write and let you know about everything thats been going on since the last time I wrote. So many things have been happening so fast it feels as if I'm caught up in a whirlwind but its definitely a good thing. My book is finally here...I'm holding my actual book in my hands and it feels so good to actually see the finished product in my hands. I'm extremely blessed to have accomplished such a great thing and it feels so good that its surreal. Well i gotta go but i'll write soon, getting some thing together for my all black party this weekend.

I've changed my name :)

Dear Diary,
Today i decided to change the name of this blog. When I originally created this blog it was started to allow people to get a sneek peek of what it's like to be an unpublished author and I wanted people to share in my journey. I initially thought that it was going to take quite some time for me to be published but God has such a way of doing things and I was picked up so fast that I didnt really have a chance to slow down until now. So today as I turned in my novel so that it can finished being put together :), I realized something. I realized that my blog name doesn't fit me anymore. I've decided to change the name from, "Diary of an Aspiring Author" to "Diary of a Debut Author" because I'm actually living an author's life. Even though my book hasnt been released just yet I'm on my way to acheiving more of my dreams. I'm just in the beginning of this journey but I'm hopeful and excited because I know it will be an interesting ride. I just would like to encourage you to continue going after your dreams because after a while your very dream will show up right on your door step for you. Continue to press through to reach your dreams no matter what. Push through the adversity in your life and reach your goals because they will come true if you just believe and never give up.

Until next time,
Jessica A. Robinson, Author :)

Life can change in an instant...

Dear Diary,
I know it's been a while since I last wrote you and updated you on my progress but I figured since I had a few moments to steal away from everything for a second that I would write you today. Since the last time I wrote you, my life has changed drastically. I have lost my mother since the last time I wrote you and that was two months ago. My mother passed away on Oct. 21, 2008 and it was a complete and total shock to us. It took my brothers and I by suprise because she wasnt even sick and even though she had diabetes she wasnt sick at all. In the aftermath of her passing, life is very different for me. Life has taken a completely different turn and I have such a different outlook on life because she was the only parent that I had left. We lost our father fifteen years ago to cancer and our family unti consisted of me, my twin brothers, and our mother. It's just crazy because I never expected in a million years that I would lose my mom and this sudden. What's even more crazy is that I lost my mother right before my book is to be released and although that may sound selfish on my part it's not. It's just sad that she won't be here to see my actual book come out and hold my finished product in her hands. I remember how she was so proud that my book was coming out and I was helping her move toward her goal to becoming published just like me and It's unbelievable that she wont be here to share this with me. One thing I have learned is that life is a precious thing and it is very important the things we choose to do with it. My mother was a woman of God and I know she went to Heaven and while she was here she touched many lives as an elementary art teacher. Just seeing how she lived her life inspires me and I would like to share some things with you. Are you living your life to fullest? Are you doing what you can to live your dreams so you'll have no regrets later on in life?

Speaking from experience in losing loved ones there's one thing I do know for myself to be true. once your life is gone you cannot get it back and my personal motto that I've recently adopted is to "Give life all you got" because you never know when your time is up. Another thing I want to share is that life can change in an instant, are you prepared for the sudden change? I know no one wants to think about dying but it is an important thing that needs to be addressed. Do you have life insurance? Do you have a will? Do you have money set to the side to pay for your funeral? Do you have things set in place so your family knows who gets any money you may have? These things are important to think about because I'm only twenty-five and I've had to think about every single question and believe it or not, I had to pay for my mother's funeral so please take time out and discuss these things. You'll thank yourself later. My mom was only 56 and she was young so you're never too young to start planning everything so your wishes can be carried out.

Now I'm more determined than ever to make something out of myself and this sudden tragedy has been propelling me forward toward my destiny. I know success is coming to me. I just have to be patient and wait on it. I'm trying to live my life in a way that there will be no regrets and value my life even more than I did.

Just some things to think about. If you have time, please go and check out and check out all of the hot releases that are coming out in 2009, including "Holy Seduction" which will be available in March 2009!

Until next time,

It's been a while...

Dear Diary,

I know I promised to write you a whole lot more but it seemed like the minute I wrote that I had even more things on my to do list to complete. There is so much that goes in to getting your book ready for release. Right now I'm in the middle of making some changes on the novel to make it better and make some of the scenes stronger and I must tell you it's going well. I have been working on it for a little under a month now and I should be done with my changes in about a week or so. Not only am I making changes I am also promoting it on the Internet like crazy and although it's alot of work, it's also fun at the same time. Whoever said that writing a book and putting it out there was easy was really stupid and need to be hurt because it is definitely a job and it is not for the weak hearted or the procrastinators. Well, today is not a long entry but i just wanted to update you on what's going on with me and the book. I also wanted to share my book cover with you as well.

Until next time,

So I have an announcement...

Dear Diary,
You know i really apologize for not keeping up with you like I should but I promise I'll do better. Well i have good news that i would definitely like to share with you. Since the last time I wrote you, my book has been picked up by a publisher! My debut novel, Holy Seduction, has found its home with Peace in the Storm Publishing. I can't begin to tell you how happy I am to have acheived this goal. This has been one of my dreams and it feels good to see it actually come true. I really believe this is an important part of the destiny that God has designed especially for me and I can't wait to see what else he has in store for me. So my debut novel will release in March 2009 just in time for my birthday and believe me I'm going to party like it's 1999! Lol...(just my little attempt at humor...:)

As time goes on i will definitely try to write every day or every couple of days so you can really take this journey with me. So buckle your seat belt, and get ready cuz this will be a interesting ride!

Until next time,
Author Jessica A. Robinson
