My first novel, an alt-world fantasy called" By Moonrise," will be published in December 2015, the premiere book in the series The Chronicles of Sarducia. I am posting chapters here each week in anticipation of the official publication, and would love feedback as I tweak the final bits.

I'm also working on a series of time travel/alternative history novels, and hope to publish In the Company of Outlaws in 2016 as well if I can figure out what's not working with my current draft. In addition to the novels, I'm trying to produce a smattering of short stories for contests and online literary publications.

In addition to my fiction, I am a professional copywriter and blog ghostwriter with my own business, Watercolor Moon, and I'm studying independent publishing as a business, as I wish to help others with the process.

I'm also a NaNoWriMo Municipal Liaison. I first gave NaNoWriMo a try in 2013, and it literally changed my life, giving me the courage and inspiration to go from a career in tech support to an actual full-time (and then some!) writing career.

You can follow my progress and foray into independent publishing, as well as learn more about my writing, on my personal blog at http://jackiedana.com or my Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/jackiedanawriter
