Twelve Days of Bookmas

by Jayne Ann Krentz

In which I answer the twelve questions that I am most frequently asked and recommend a book for that hard-to-buy-for person on your holiday list.

EIGHTH DAY OF BOOKMAS

Question # 8:  What does your writing day look like?

I’m surprised how often this question gets asked.  The answer is that before I got this cool writing gig, I spent several years working as a librarian in various corporate and academic libraries.  When I was finally making as much money with my writing as I was as a librarian — not a big number, I assure you — I quit my day job and started writing full time.  Looking back, I guess I took my old work habits into my new profession.  That routine, combined with the fact that I am a morning person, means that I start my writing days fairly early – around 7am.  I write fairly steadily until about noon.  By then, whatever creativity I’ve got going that day is pretty well shot.

I spend my afternoons doing all the other stuff that requires a different mind-set – social media, research, editing and – my favorite afternoon hobby — shopping.  I am a true fan of retail therapy.

While I am a fairly disciplined writer I am not especially neat and tidy in other areas of my life.  For example, at the start of a book my office looks fairly well-organized.  Four months later at the end of a book it looks like it was struck by a whirlwind — which is why I can make the following book recommendation with a lot of enthusiasm:

Day 8 book recommendation for holiday gifting

What can I tell you?  This book changed my life – or, at least, my closet.  If you’ve got someone on your list who is serious about getting a handle on clutter, this is the book.

About When All The Girls Have Gone

when-all-the-girls-have-goneJayne Ann Krentz, the New York Times bestselling author of Secret Sisters, delivers a thrilling novel of the deceptions we hide behind, the passions we surrender to, and the lengths we’ll go to for the truth…

When Charlotte Sawyer is unable to contact her stepsister, Jocelyn, to tell her that one of her closest friends was found dead, she discovers that Jocelyn has vanished.

Beautiful, brilliant—and reckless—Jocelyn has gone off the grid before, but never like this. In a desperate effort to find her, Charlotte joins forces with Max Cutler, a struggling PI who recently moved to Seattle after his previous career as a criminal profiler went down in flames—literally. Burned out, divorced and almost broke, Max needs the job.

After surviving a near-fatal attack, Charlotte and Max turn to Jocelyn’s closest friends, women in a Seattle-based online investment club, for answers. But what they find is chilling…

When her uneasy alliance with Max turns into a full-blown affair, Charlotte has no choice but to trust him with her life. For the shadows of Jocelyn’s past are threatening to consume her—and anyone else who gets in their way…
