About Me

WHO IS THIS ES JONES?

Hellooo. My name is Emma, and as you can tell from my punny blog name, I’m a writer.

I’m in my early-to-mid twenties, I live in Kentucky, and I’m a few kinds of queer. I have a girlfriend of half a decade who lives far away from me.

Vegetarian. Lazy. Optimistic. Night-shift worker. That about sums me up.

I’m going to keep this blog about writing, with book reviews scattered in there.

Sage and Tyson enjoy a quickly burnt-out romance, but everything changes when Tyson and Shannon are kidnapped. Nina and Sage, two women who have barely said two words to each other, suddenly find themselves in a frantic search to save their families.
Involves: Implied queerness, tarot cards, fantastical transformation, character with eye patch, other things I don’t want to name yet…

More will be added as more happens.

  1. I like the style and tone of your blog.You seem grounded, and not so self-facing as some blogs on writing I’m seeing. No small feat.

    I’ve got a 2nd book coming out in July, this one is non-fiction, a how-to for novice writers, Titled ;Tell Me (How to Write) a Story’.
    The last, Claiming One (2013) is a collection of short stories, The blog Roof-beam Reader had some nice things to say about it.
    May I forward your contact page to my publisher, she may want to inquire about a guest blog post, or review, or interview post from you.
    Thanks,
    E.J. Runyon (fellow nano-er)
