Due to the current virus going around, I have seen many posts on various social media sites about parents with children stuck at home. Due to this, I have also seen many of these parents looking for some new children’s books. While I can’t help with younger kids, I can help anyone with children in the 8-12 age range or anyone who still enjoys reading middle grade fiction. So, from tomorrow, Friday 3/20 through Tuesday 3/24, the first book in my series will be free!
If you are interested in print books, Amazon often has my first four books and the first series companion on sale, so if you’re interested in a series of books about animals, magic, or both, you should definitely check them out on Amazon! https://www.amazon.com/Jennifer-Priester/e/B00AOFPVLO/ref=dp_byline_cont_ebooks_1

The first thing I thought when I started reading was that the five seemed like a fun group. I love how throughout, unlike a lot of other books like this, there are light hearted moments with the characters that are fun to be part of. These characters are easy to like and are quick to feel like friends more than just characters I’m reading about. It’s rare for me to actually feel involved with the characters and the world. This book accomplishes that. It’s a highly engaging and fast paced read. Unlike many longer books, I didn’t want to take a break while reading. I still needed to, but I really didn’t want to stop reading for anything. I was surprised for the kind of book it is, that I found it to be believable and have a realistic feel to it. The world and characters are easy to imagine and at a different time, I think the village would be an awesome place to live. It sounds like it would be paradise during better times.

For those of you familiar with the cover of the print edition of Learning About Magic, you will notice some changes have been made. To all those readers out there who have read and loved my book, the cover is all that’s changed. Inside, it’s still the same!
Sometimes crazy and impossible things happen. Most people would either ignore what I experienced or use science to explain it. You could say I imagined it, that what happened was coincidence, or explain what happened in many different ways. You can say whatever you want, but you will never change what I know happened.
I was at home cleaning the cage of my rabbit, Oreo, when just for a moment I felt a cold breeze. There was no one around and no open doors at that time. This all happened very quickly. Directly following the cold was what I would call a companionable warmth, like what you would feel with a friend nearby. This lasted right up until the phone rang and the warm presence was gone, leaving behind the feeling of sadness. Just after that, I’m being told what I already knew. Oreo was gone.
As crazy and impossible as it sounds to many people, I believed it then and always will believe that Oreo was there.
I was wrong. I will not be making the posts I originally had planned. The reason for this is because my head doesn’t work like that. I can’t control where my thoughts go so sticking to a plan never seems to work out. However, I can stick to ideas with no problems. As I considered where to go and what to do next, an idea came to me. I decided that before I can make it interesting for you, I need to make it interesting for me. That’s why I haven’t made a lot of posts. I’m always getting stuck on what would be interesting to everyone else. Now, I’m just going to make posts that are fun for me and see what happens. It works for writing stories so I assume the same rules apply here as well. In my next post, whatever that ends up being, I am just going to go with it.
My blog isn’t nearly as active as it should be, however I have been working to get it running again. The reason there haven’t been new posts in a while is because I have been working on posts that will bring it to a more personal level. These posts don’t come easily to me and my life doesn’t really offer much to blog about.
Life for me isn’t really that exciting. I’m an author with a publishing company and that’s really all there is. I’m not one of those authors that gets inspired by these incredible adventures that they have had, because I don’t have adventures. I can only imagine adventures and more interesting lives than my own.
Most of the time I do the same things every day. I get up and when it’s possible to, I go outside. I do some reading later and write if the mood hits. I feel like if I blogged about my life you would always read the same post.
Sometimes I go to vendor events or author events for book promotion, but what happens at these events is basically just waiting and hoping to sell books. Interesting happenings are rare.
Otherwise I don’t have much going on in my life. I don’t get to see people or be with them much, aside from family so fun is always lacking. I have the worlds most inactive dog, and I have yet to learn how to drive.
I’m not complaining about my life. While boring, there are occasionally blog worthy moments. I have been drawing on my past and my current life to create blog posts. However, as there aren’t many yet, the blog will still be a bit inactive. At least you can’t complain that I make too many posts.
