SheWriter Blogger Ball!

Welcome to the SheWrites Blogger Ball!

The fabulous Meg Waite Clayton is hosting a blog meet-and-greet of sorts for SheWrites.com members, so I thought I'd introduce Jello World to other SheWriters. For a list of participating blogs and instructions on how to get in on the action, click the bookcase above! I've got my dancing shoes on and am ready to twirl around on the arms of various bloggers so that we all might say How do you do? So without further ado, here is my introduction to me!

I am an aspiring novelist, with a few short pieces published in online venues (click the My Writing tab above for titles and links!) I write mostly commercial women's fiction and erotica. I love networking and socializing online with other writers... probably too much. In addition to SheWrites, you can usually find me lurking around Agent Query Connect, where I moderate a critique group, or occasionally posting snippets over at Fictionaut.

I have a penchant for jello (hence the blog name) and sometimes compare it to both life and writing. My adorable dachshund occasionally makes an appearance on the blog, although she's kinda pissed right now because we moved across the state, and therefore has not been especially adorable or cuddly. Writing (and reading!) erotica is tons of fun for me, but I have pet peeves about what currently passes for good erotica. I tend to develop writerly crushes on folks, and when I do, I'll promote their writing/blog/whatever with reckless abandon. All of these things - and more! - you will find if you stick around Jello World for a while. So, welcome! I look forward to meeting the rest of you!



  1. Nice blog you have here.

    Sooo, you find erotica a fun genre? I've played with the idea a bit but I think I'd enjoy reading it more. But you never know.


  2. A visitor from the she-writes ball. Interesting blog, thanks!

  3. Another visitor from SheWrites.

    I'm also a new subscriber to your blog. :)

  4. I think I like the Jello comparison to life...much more than a box of chocolate. Jello is that not-quite-solid-once-liquid reality that is much more like life. I hope your dachsund stops being pissed at you! We just got a new dog, and he is 1/2 dachsund, 1/2 chihuahua. We call him a chiweinie...I attribute most of his great attributes to the dachsund 1/2 of him :) MMF www.meaganfrank.com

  5. Hello! I'm here from She Writes. Good luck with your writing.

  6. Another visiting blogger from SheWrites. Wishing you all the best, and now following.

  7. I stopped by to dance too. I never thought about it before, but your post on names and sounds is so true. The power of imagination is strong on it's own, eh?

  8. I'm dropping by for the blogger ball. OMG, can I point out that your name also looks like Jello? J.L.Lo Did anyone else notice that? Anyway, I'm your newest follower.

  9. Dancing over from the SW ball. Lovely to meet you.

  10. Wow, thank you all for visiting/reading/subscribing! I'm glad you've found something of interest here.

    @Kelly - What's even better is that the J. in my name stands for Jennifer. So I really am Je.L.Lo :)

    @Meagan - awww a chiweinie!!! That sounds adorable! Our doxie is having a difficult time with the move. Not sure how to calm her anxiety besides just waiting it out.

    @tosh - yes, I think erotica is a lot of fun. There's so much to be explored in terms of characterization and emotion when you look at a story through the frame of sex/sexuality. Also, for everyone else, Tosh's site is actually www.totsymae.com :-)

  11. I completely understand blog crushes, I get those too. Looking forward to seeing more of your writing.

  12. Hiya!
    Writing erotica must be fun. Following you now. Catherine


Got something to say?
