So, I wanted to do something for everyone stuck inside right now. This isn’t the only thing I’m doing, or even the only thing I’ll be posting here during these… uncertain times, but I felt it would be useful to post something fairly quickly first.
- I am here and I am safe, and practicing social distancing as well as I can.
- I am giving away my book, ASH via the link below. There are several formats there so most should be able to read it. If you’d like a format I don’t have in there, let me know in the comments.
Welcome to the land of Aramond, the land of fantastical, mythical beasts and creatures.
Join our own Jordan Nicole Smith as she takes you on a serialized adventure like no other through a land where all the mythical creatures live.

Hey friends. I know I haven’t been on here in awhile, and I do have another story for here soon, but I’d like to announce a new horror anthology; Behind the Door.
This terrifying anthology contains stories from this very site, polished until they glistened. It also contains new stories, like Room 142, which I am very proud of and I think it’ll make you not want to be alone for awhile.
You’ll be able to get it via Kindle and Kindle Unlimited by April 5th. Unfortunately, I can’t do pre-orders, but I will make an announcement, here and on my other social media pages when it’s available.
Thank you, now back to your regularly scheduled day.
I think I’m going to do something a little different today. Currently, I’m in the final phases of editing for my soon-to-be released horror book, ASH. So, I thought I’d post a freshly edited excerpt here, see what y’all think. Continue reading “Excerpt from ASH”
It’s December! You know what that means? That’s right, it means:
The end of NaNoWriMo!
I’m proud to announce that I won it this year. How about you? Did you win? If not, how many words did you get?
Or maybe you didn’t participate in NaNoWriMo, so the beginning of December just means the dreaded holiday season. In that case, happy holidays!
With NaNo being over, I’ve now got more time to post here, so expect something within the next few days. Well, that’s all for today. See you on the next thing I post, and, whether you do NaNo or not, keep writing.
Forgive me, this one’s a bit late, but welcome everybody to NaNoWriMo! If you’re doing it, how’s it going? Are you ahead? Behind? Exactly where you need to be? Well, I seem to be doing pretty well, but I haven’t done one of the things that makes it feel real to me yet, so, I’d like to introduce my project for this year’s NaNoWriMo: ASH
It’s actually a rework of a previous NaNo project that has been sitting ever since. This year, I’ve decided to use NaNoWriMo as a sort-of revision pass for this book, since there are enough problems in the first draft to necessitate a full rewrite anyway. I think I’ll use this as a Road to Self Publishing post after NaNo is done, provided that this turns out to be a success.
But, while we’re here, does anyone want to share their NaNo project? Or maybe just add me as a buddy? You can find me here or drop something in the comments.
Is anyone else, like, way behind on NaNo prep? I don’t even have an inkling of an idea yet. By this time, I usually have something, but this year? Nothing.
With that said, who else is doing NaNo prep this month? How’s it going? Are you disastrously behind? Or maybe you’re ahead of schedule? Do you even do that much prep in October?
You heard it right everybody. We’re finally putting the Authors in Modern Authors and getting a second author here. I’ll probably still be the main one here, but it’ll be nice to have a fresh voice, don’t you think? Anyway, Elihowlett’s first post should be arriving before too long, so give it a read, yeah?
Modern Authors has finally been moved to a real domain! Welcome to modernauthors.org. Same great taste, new place. Honestly, this is something I should have done awhile ago, i just never got around to it. But we’re here now, and here’s where we’ll stay! The modernauthors.wordpress.com address will still work, so if that’s the main way you get here, there should be no issues. That is all. Carry on.
