The Molly Miranda Trilogy Box Set is Here!

I feel like me and Molly have been through a lot together. After three books of sassy adventures, I got to release a three-book box set of Thief for Hire, Thick as Thieves and Honor Among Thieves on Kindle and Kindle Unlimited. I wrote a special exclusive freebie to add to it as an extra incentive too.

I’ve also priced it so buyers get a free version

Since it’s brand new, it’s currently sitting at zero reviews so I need some help from you guys to boost its signal on Amazon a little. You can even copy and paste a previous review if you like, or you can write something really quick and short.

Leave a review here!

Molly Miranda: Honor Among Thieves now available on Kindle

It’s here, it’s here! Now available on Kindle and Kindle Unlimited. Go get it!

I have three other products coming out shortly:

  1. The Molly Miranda: Honor Among Thieves paperback
  2. The Molly Miranda trilogy paperback
  3. The Molly Miranda trilogy ebook

I’ll be ordering the trilogy paperback and the Honor Among Thieves paperback at the same time so there might be a bit of a delay but I don’t expect the paperback production to take too long. I’ll post on here when everything is ready.

If you enjoy reading Honor Among Thieves, make sure to let me know by leaving a review on Amazon.com! You can also add Honor Among Thieves to your To Read list on Goodreads. Thanks everyone!

Honor Among Thieves Details Reveal!

In case you missed the big announcement on Facebook, the back blurb/summary for the third MOLLY MIRANDA book has been revealed!

MOLLY MIRANDA IS IN DANGER. FOR SERIOUS.

This time, Molly is in danger of falling in love… but she and her partner-in-crime are also being hunted. So, there’s that.

Thanks to a recent misunderstanding with a crime family, Molly and Rhys are running for their lives, making a few stops along the way to steal from some high-profile targets, including a reality TV star and a famous supermodel.

Molly’s father in still in hiding and she has no idea where he is or when she’ll see him again. Plus, her best friend makes a big announcement that could potentially end their friendship.

Molly and Rhys have to depend on one another more than ever, especially when the bullets start flying.

The Kindle version of Molly Miranda: Honor Among Thieves will be out this month! Sign up for my newsletter to get a notification in your inbox when it’s released.

Book 3 Cover + Title Announcement!

Ta-daaaaaaa! My editor has book 3 in her hands and I’ve created the cover for the third instalment of Molly Miranda’s adventures. What do you think?

It actually reminds me of Harley Quinn—the cartoon version, not the sexy Margot Robbie version.

I am already working on my fourth book. However, it’s unrelated to Molly Miranda. I’m not quite ready to announce what this new project is yet. Maybe in a few months after the above bad boy gets released.

Guest Post: How to Understand the Author’s Message

Hello readers and happy new year! I’m currently editing Molly Miranda 3 and hope to have it in my editor’s hands in the next few weeks. When that happens, I’ll be announcing the title and cover of Book 3 and I’m so excited. Here’s another guest post from Lucy Adams on writing. Cheers!


Very often, when reading a new book, we only see the information that is on the surface and do not notice what is between the lines. In fact, the real depth and beauty lie in these elusive signs and symbols that our attention misses.

Lessons from NaNoWriMo Land

jmwle

Well, I did it. I took part in National Novel Writing Month and didn’t quit. I finished the first draft of my third novel, Molly Miranda: Book 3.

For this, I am very proud.

Buuuuuuuut I didn’t reach 50,000 words which is kind of the whole point of it.

(Just so you’re aware, the above gif is from a British sitcom called Black Books. It’s bizarre and quite charming, especially for book nerds. I think it’s on Netflix. Highly recommend it.)


FINAL WORD COUNT: 40,006 words
WORDS LEFT: 9,994
AVERAGE PER DAY: 1,333 (instead of the recommended 1,667)
DAYS I TOOK OFF FROM WRITING: 5

Even with taking a week off from work to focus on it, I still didn’t reach my 50k. But I feel okay about this. My books aren’t even 60,000 words anyway and I moved the plot along really quickly so I don’t expect many issues to arise when I go back to edit.

I learned a few things about myself as a writer:

  1. really don’t like ignoring spelling mistakes. I have a hard time just continuing on.
  2. Evening writing is my jam. Morning writing is basically impossible.
  3. Stardew Valley is a terrific game and a terrible distraction.
  4. I hate feeling like writing is a chore. It definitely felt like a chore for me all month.
  5. When I spend the month pouring my brain out into a Google Doc, I ignore other things in my life. It’s now December 2 and I feel like I just spent the month in a cave. It’s the weirdest thing.

At this point, I don’t know if I’ll do it again. Ask me again next year. But I’m definitely glad I did it.

Guest Post: Why Do You Need to Plan Before Writing?

Hello readers! I’ve been busy ramping up for National Novel Writing Month. Molly Miranda #3 is, of course, the project I’ll be focusing on and I’m so excited about it. I’ve only tried NaNoWriMo once before and it didn’t go very well, but that was before I had two novels under my belt. I also have a detailed outline going in this time that is certain to help. I’ve been doing a lot of planning, so this guest post came at a perfect time. Talk soon! -Jillianne


Working on buzzessay.com, I always wonder why novices underestimate the importance of planning. Perhaps this is the consequence of a rush, when the writer is full of ideas and anticipates great things. In this state, how can planning – such a little nuance – prevent the future per wizard from creating his first masterpiece?
