A BIG change...

Hello all!

It's funny, I started this blog as a way to document my path to publishing. But then, when it all happened so quickly, I never had a chance to specify each piece of my journey.

Guess that's just the way life goes.

But, I do have some BIG news to share!


How about that! :D 

It is called "Imani's Moon" and it'll be published by Mackinack Island Press/Charlesbridge Publishing. I am so thrilled!!!

And not only that, I have a new website and blog that I have started, and I'd be honored if you followed me on that blog as well.  My website is www.janaybrownwood.com and my new blog is on the same site, but under the "Blog" heading.  Here's the quick link to it: http://www.janaybrownwood.com/blog .

So with that said, this will be my last post in JaNay With Words (at least for the time being. Who knows what the future holds).  It has been a lot of fun thinking about writing and discussing the "writerly" thoughts that run through my head.  But no worries, I'll continue to do much of the same on my new blog, while talking about experiences I have on my new road: The Road of a Published Author. I'll also talk about some of the milestones I've gone through (like how my editorial processes went and events I've attended, etc.)

Thanks again for reading JaNay With Words, and I hope you continue to join me on this new adventure. You can also find me on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/janaybrownwood?ref=hl .

Onward I go!

JBW :)
