Imagination is freedom…on writing, self-publishing and all things fantasy

Hi!  I’m Jasmine Angell and I’m a dreamer.  Up until a few weeks ago I was like many of you – an aspiring writer.  All of my life I’ve wanted to be a published author and that goal was realized less than 2 weeks ago.  Goal?  Who am I kidding?  Dream!!  My dream of becoming a published author was finally realized and two weeks later I’m still jumping up and down!  I’d read once that for most people when you publish a book, nothing really changes:  the Earth keeps spinning, you don’t become famous in that instant and fireworks don’t go off every time you’re in public.  All of those things are true for me (I’m especially glad the Earth is still spinning) but in actuality, everything has changed!  I’ve realized a goal I’ve been working tirelessly towards for the past 6 and a half years and now I’m wearing a rather large, rather heavy, and rather gaudy hat called Marketer/Promoter/Publicist.  I don’t want my novel to be like one of those DVDs you rent with some big-name actor/actress in it that is surprisingly good but you didn’t even know was in theaters months prior because there was no marketing campaign behind it.  You know what I’m talking about.   I don’t want my novel to be a best-kept secret.  So this is my blog about my continuing journey as a writer, my new adventures as a published author and all of the things I’m passionate about.  I hope you’ll join this fledgling blogger for future posts.  Long live your dreams!

I'm an Arizona native living in Salt Lake City, Utah. I'm the author of the YA fantasy novels, The Psyne Series, and on a daily basis I juggle the creative life with a happily energetic family life. I love reading, dancing, snowboarding, and planning Victorian tea parties. I'm obsessed with all things Steampunk and I'm certifiably horse crazy.
