Nervous Nelly–Contest

I’m making a list of everything that I have to pack and praying that I get it all in one suitcase. You’d think by the way my nerves are jumping in my stomach that I’d never gone on a trip before. 🙁 Sigh.

This brings up something that I’ve discovered since I started writing full-time. I used to be a very social person in high school and college. Admittedly, I can be a chatterbox. This was a very good trait to have during my fourteen years as a flight attendant. With the change in job, came a big change in personality. I’m no longer a ‘social butterfly’. I don’t like crowds. I don’t like being away from home and my dh. I am not good at small talk and my comfort zone is the size of a thimble. If you knew me before and after, you wouldn’t believe that I am the same person. I think the change comes from living much of my life inside of my head and working in solitude. It makes what was once easy (tackling social events), quite difficult.

Since I won’t be blogging this week, I thought it would be cool to run a contest. I realize these two ebooks are old (2003), but the paperback versions are new. 😀 If you’d like a chance to win a copy of SOMEWHERE IN TIME or EXODUS, leave me a comment in my blog telling me why you want a particular book. I’ll have dh draw two names on Aug. 2nd in honor of my dad’s birthday. Good luck. 🙂

  1. I know how that is. Me pre-puberty and post-puberty is vastly different–beyond the growth of boobs that is, though I’m still really short. LOL.

    Uhm, is not yet having read the books a good reason? I think it is, so Jordan’s DH, pick me! *g*


  2. I know what you mean, Jordan. I’m still pretty social, but then I haven’t been lucky enough to work full time. But I find that I’m tired from living out full bodied life events for several people at a time inside my head, so I’m sometimes more quiet than normal in ‘real’ life.
    Hmm, I have Somewhere in Time if you’re talking the one where he went back in time. Never read Exodus, but from the Amazon write up – it sounds really interesting. I’ll throw my hat in for that one. 🙂


  3. Hi, Jordan. Have a wonderful time at nationals. I’m ditching this year in favor of writing. Here I am being the hermit! I know what you mean about personality change. I guess it comes with the territory for some of us? Have fun!


  4. Hope you have a great time!

    I’d love to read Exodus.


  5. I would love to win Exodus. A friend recently recommended you to me. She knows I love paranormal romance and from what I have read your books sound really good. i would love to try one. I can sympathize with your situation as well. now that I am the mother of a toddler and am pregnant with a baby girl who is due in October my social skills have gotten rather rusty as well. i will keep my fingers crossed.


  6. I would love to win a copy of EXODUS because I enjoy books with strong willed characters.


  7. I would love to be in the running for Somewhere in time. Sad to say I have not read any of your work yet and from the excerpt I read, your story sounds like a very well-done time travel.


  8. Hope you have lots of fun at the conference and come back with all sorts of industry info.


  9. You know I adore you Jordan. I just bought the rest of your Atlantean series so if I was going in for a drawing, it’d have to be for Somewhere in Time. I haven’t read that one yet. 🙂 hehehe.

    I hope Nationals is a success for you. I’m sure you’re going to have a fantastic time. Just be yourself and you’ll do great. I can’t wait to hear all the gossip and stories you’ll have to share.


  10. Okay, I’ve entered everyone but Chey into the contest. I’ll announce the winners on Wednesday. Good Luck!!! And Chey, I almost wish I would’ve stayed home to write since I have so much to do.


  11. Because I’ve never read one? *blush*

    I’ve always been shy but now I’m downright anti-social. See you in Dallas

    *snicker*


  12. Cece, *ggg* I’ve entered you. 🙂 I probably won’t be going to Dallas next year. I’ve decided to hit smaller conferences instead. :-/


  13. LOL thanks hon….I was sorta kinda joking about the Dallas thing, though I probably will go. 😉


  14. Cece, I’d love to meet you. 😀


  15. Who are you, and what have you done with my sister? LOL I do know what you mean though, we do keep changing, with our job situations and other social changes. Having a kid will also make you a different person! I still know chatty Cathy is under there somewhere!
