AWARD: One Lovely Blog

I was nominated by 5 wonderful bloggers for the One Lovely Blog Award several months ago, but I’m just coming up for air to address a few missed posts in the past… All of these women are truly inspirational and remarkable… you must visit their sites as there is something new and fun every single day. From book reviews to blog tours, learning to laughing, and all the way to recipes, you’re bound to spend hours getting lost in their amazing forums.

About Me
For those new to me or my reviews… here’s the scoop: I’m Jay, an author who lives in NYC. My debut novel, Watching Glass Shatter, can be purchased on Amazon. I write A LOT. I read A LOT. And now I blog A LOT. First the book review goes on Goodreads, and then I send it on over to my WordPress blog at, where you’ll find the revealing and introspective 365 Daily Challenge – words and humor. You can also find all my social media profiles to get the details on the who/what/when/where and my pictures. Leave a comment and let me know what you think. Thanks for stopping by. Note: All written content is my original creation and copyrighted to me, but the graphics and images were linked from other sites and belong to them. Many thanks to their original creators. Follow my blog with Bloglovin.


  1. Thanks for including me! I love autumn too. If it wasn’t for the nice temperatures of summer, it would definitely be my favorite season. It’s a toss-up for sure.

    How exciting that you’re going to England and Italy! Will be a nice way to celebrate your book launch.

      • Nice! That sounds really pretty with the green and pink for the cake. Good idea. 🙂
        I’m glad to hear the book launch has been so great! That’s wonderful. Things have been great here, thank you for asking! 😀 Just really, really busy with a new job and new house, but I’m hoping it should all come together and calm down again soon. 🙂 Hope you’ve been having a fantastic weekend!
