Brazil was AMAZING!

I don't think I can adequately put into words how amazing Brazil was.
7 flights in 8 days.
4 cities.
Countless readers, other authors and new friends.

I have never been more grateful and thankful for my life than I am in this moment. I didn't know that Brazil would inspire me, alter my view, change me.
But it did.
It has.
It's funny how other countries can do that to you-  make you think about things you never really thought about before. Make you see things you otherwise wouldn't have. I don't know that I like what visiting other countries is making me feel about my own. Don't get me wrong, I love America. It's my home, but damn, we are one gluttonous country. We have SO much and other places have SO little. The funny part is how much we don't really "need" all the crap we have here. Why do we have 250 shampoo bottles to choose from? No wonder we're so stressed out.  LOL

Anyway, it was a great trip to a beautiful country I would have otherwise most likely never seen in my lifetime. Most people there didn't speak English (and they shouldn't have), but holy hell was that part hard when Tarryn and I were left all alone. At one point she was almost in tears trying to order room service and I couldn't stop laughing at them hanging up on her time and time again. Tarryn gets Hangry. I get laughy.

Dinner the first night with our Faro Editorial staff, and Faro author, Marcus!

 Myself and Tarryn drinking Cairpihinishaldsfsdjk in Sao Paulo our first day there!

 Just your everyday bonding session with Pedro from Faro Editorial!  <3

 Apparently this is what it's like to room with me, according to Tarryn. I don't see the problem.

 In Rio

Don't know what we would have done without these 2. Well, we wouldn't have been able to speak to anyone and we would have walked everywhere. LOL  Andrea and Pri were the best!!!  <3


Brazil, I love you. Thank you for opening my heart and making it beat with a passion unlike anything ever has. You are wonderful.  Truly wonderful and I appreciate you.  Obrigada!  Jenn

Dear Heart is live!



You've been waiting!  You guys, I'm really excited for you to read this story. Per usual, a part of my heart is in here. Part of my sadness, my struggle, my life......  my books are always personal. More so because I take things that have happened to me and write them out. It's just what I do. This is no exception. At all.

This book was HARD for me to write. So hard. I hope you FEEL that while you're reading it.

I hope you love it. I really, really, hope you love it. Thank you so much for reading.

Hypable talks Dear Heart I Hate You

OMG, DEAR HEART I HATE YOU comes out tomorrow!!!!

TOMORROW!

I'm pretty excited (and sick to my stomach).

Hypable gave me a little of their time and I was honored.  Even more honored when I read this;
"Sterling weaves a tale of unexpected love and long distance relationships that is both enjoyable to read and truthfully painful when examining the truth about love and ambition."

A must read for aspiring writers

I get a lot of emails asking me about the process of writing. Asking me about self-publishing. Asking me if they should query their book. Asking me all sorts of things.

I gave this interview to Jake awhile back, but nothing in my thought  process has changed one bit. It's one of the most honest, wordy interviews i've ever done.  There's a lot about "failure" in there. There's a little about Drake.  There's more failure references.

Self-publishing was hard. The decision to self-publish was hard. You need to read this interview. Not because it's me giving it, but because of the things I said- the way I felt- if you're an aspiring writer, you might be going through this. You might have already gone through it.

So... you should read it.  And then hit publish.  :)

Thank you so much Jake for the interview. Congrats on your first book and here's to many more!  :)
