Meet Rosie

best writing coaches carrie jones

Today’s the day, you meet Rosie, the heroine of THE PLACES WE HIDE and it’s soon to be released SEQUEL WITH NO NAME STILL!

Yes, I’m having title issues.

Anyway, here’s some random facts about Rosie:

  1. She has a fake name because someone was awful in the past.
  2. She’s on a serial killer’s short list.
  3. She might have a crush on a soon-to-be divorced cop.
  4. Tries really hard not to swear.
  5. Is not a good runner.
  6. She lives in Maine where I live in Maine but she is not me.

Spoiler alert: I’ve never been on a serial killer’s short list.

I hope you’ll go check out her first story.

The second story is pretty awesome and just needs:

  1. A copyedit
  2. A cover.
  3. Some damn formatting.
  4. Me to figure out how to advertise things.
  5. A freaking title.

Anyway, I hope you’ll check it out when it appears in this world and in the meantime, I hope you’ll check out Rosie’s first book.


On one of my Patreon sites I read and print chapters of unpublished YA novels. THE LAST GODS and SAINT and now ALMOST DEAD. This is a monthly membership site (Hear the book chapters – $1/month, read them $3-month, plus goodies!). Sometimes I send people art! Art is fun.

On this, my second site, WRITE BETTER NOW, you can do a one-time purchase of a writing class or get two of my books in eBook form or just support our podcast or the dogs. It’s all part of the WRITING CLASS OF AWESOME.

It’s a super fun place to hang out, learn, read, and see my weirdness in its true form.

And I’m starting up a brand new, adult paranormal set at a Maine campground. You can read the first chapter here.
