Greetings Gnomies!
It has been a while since I have posted anything on the site and I must say I miss you all. The reason I have not posted is I have been struggling with things in my personal life and have been focusing a bit less on writing as a consequence. I am currently trying to obtain more funds for the editing of the sequel to “Fairy Tainted” and have been working a lot more at my day job. I wish there were more hours in the day but, there is not. I have been keeping up on social media and working on a few non-fairy writings. I still do not have my other site up yet and will be focusing on that this coming year as well. I do hope that many of you are still reading.
xoxo,

Greetings Gnomies!
Hello all. The past few months I have been travelling for inspiration. Some of the images will be posted soon. Other than that writing is slow going but still going. ETA on the sequel to “Fairy Tainted” is 2019.

Greetings Gnomies!
Hello all. Been plotting several novels and working on some reformatting. Hopefully in the next month or two I will have the website completely updated! That will be when I start a new series of tales. I still have not decided where in the timeline I wish to place them. At any rate next month I will be celebrating my wedding anniversary and travelling on my own adventures. I am hoping some of the fun gets transposed into my tales. I still don’t have a hard date for the books in print but they will be coming to print!

Greetings Gnomies!
Wow, another month already! This past month has been crazy. I have been working at my day job a ton and been busy redecorating my office space. In the mist of all that I finally broke the 100 page mark of the sequel to “Fairy Tainted”! Yippie! Although that means the release will be later than my typical November 15th release date. Lately I have been more called to the Sci-fi and am working on that piece as a way to take a break from Fairoria. One bright spot is that I am working on getting a knew cover for “Fairy Tainted” before releasing for print. That’s right your read it here PRINT! I hope to be able to put my works in a non-digital form to appease you all.
xoxo,
J. Lea

Greetings Gnomies!
The past month has been full of pleasant surprises. Up with the ratings up with you great fans. All in all things are looking sunny! Work has continued on my second novel which I have been focusing on. Starting in May I look forward to the blogs returning both Gnome Tales (a new line of tales) and a new set to be revealed. I cannot wait to share this alml with you but first time for polishing!

Greetings Gnomies!
Happy New Year! I apologize for my silence last month. I was in an auto accident and found it difficult to work for a few weeks. Now that I am better and winter has its full effect in the north I am in writing mode! This year is open with potential and I am planning many new things. I hope all is well!

Greetings Gnomies!
Today I uploaded the final copy of Gnome Tales: The adventures of Hakala the Gnome! It will be available on November 15th this year. After a difficult ending to October it is an exciting change of pace. I look forward to sharing these stories with you and cannot wait until you read the ending! The Gnome tales tie into my Fairoria novels so be prepared for a fun read as the Gnome Tales are light-hearted addition to the series.

Greetings Gnomies!
Fall is upon us. The leaves are falling, the pumpkins are being harvested, and Halloween is right around the corner. Oh, do I love this time of year. In just 33 days Gnometales: the Adventures of Hakala the Gnome will be released! I am excited to share her tales with all of you! The collection will include all that have been on the website plus bonus short stories. I hope you are ready to settle down with a good book being that winter is coming! I hope to film a few trailers this month but we’ll see as writing and my day job have kept me busy.
xoxo,
J. Lea


September 20, 2016
Greetings Gnomies!
Wow, time has really been flying! My collection of “Gnome Tales” will be released Nov. 15, 2016 so grab your preorder before the price goes up! Also I saw my first five star review on amazon so I am currently on cloud nine. I am finally getting settled into my new home and have gotten back into my writing schedule so expect more adventures in the near future. I have been spending more of my time working my “day job” so I can recoup my writing budget so my other website is kind of getting the cold shoulder as I don’t have the time to continue developing it but the ideas are evolving and with them so must I so hopefully by the spring there will be more on that. I hope to produce a few book trailers before Christmas but as I am learning how difficult some of my ambitions can be they sometimes take longer than expected so we will see. No matter my journey you the first ones to hear of it. Hope you had a grand summer as I did!
xoxo,

August 23, 2016
Greetings Gnomies!  My the month has flown by and unfortunately I spent a large chunk of it without internet 🙁 But all is not bad I am just in the process of still relocating to Wisconsin so hopefully I get a chance to explore and meet a few of you delightful fans! The next Gnome Tale will be released by the 30th so keep your eyes open and more news will be released soon on other upcoming projects.
XOXO,
J. Lea

 


July 6, 2016
Greetings Gnomies! I am currently in transition (moving from one state to another) so my posting has become a bit infrequent so I apologize. However on the Brightside I am 1/4 of the way finished writing the first draft of the sequel to “Fairy Tainted” so by next year I hope it will be ready for release! On the note of cover reveals I have not had a chance to get my IT guy to help me update the front page yet but I will hopefully soon! NEW Gnome Tales will be coming soon along with perhaps other tales. My second website is still unfinished as I have been busy promoting and writing and packing. I am hoping by this fall it will be fully functional. Other than that I don’t have much to say other than NOOK and other fine e-book distributers now carry “Fairy Tainted”!
XOXO,
J. Lea


June 2, 2016
Greetings Gnomies! In just a few more days and with a little luck “Fairy Tainted” will be available on NooK! Also On June 12,2016 at 2pm I will be making an appearance at Barnes and Noble at the Maplewood Mall in Maplewood, Minnesota thanks to a certain gnomie of mine! I hope to see you all there. Also in a few days I will be revealing the cover for my short, short stories collection which I am planning to release in August! Until then dream big.

May 5th, 2016
Greetings Gnomies! Life has been fun and great adventure. The month has just begun and a lot has happened. I got a request to speak and promote my novel for next month at Barnes and Noble!! This is really exciting!! May 13,15,16 and May 21 and 22 “Fairy Tainted” will be offered for free in honor of this news. I will be away in the real world for most of the month s my real life is really busy but good. June will be back to business as usual and expect more stories and new things.
xoxo,
J. Lea


April 11, 2016
Greetings Gnomies! It has been a wild month but I made it through. I have a few projects in the works which I shall announce next month! I am really excited to share my world with you. I started a photo series of my three Gnomes and will be posting them on Instagram, twitter, and Facebook. Follow your dreams.
xoxo,
J. Lea


March 6, 2016
Greetings Gnomies! Looks like spring is settling in and the sun is shining. I am currently editing the eighth ‘Gnome Tale’ and I cannot wait to share it! There are only a few more Gnome Tales in the works then there will be a new set of tales to take their place (shhh…it’s a surprise!) so be on the look out for those;) I have been very busy the last month or so working on content and articles for my new website jlearichardson.com which will house a blog of sorts filled with lessons, cooking, makeup, crafts, and what-not. Also it will house short stories not pertaining to Fairoria. In addition to all that I am still planning a wedding in the real world which is driving me crazy. I just want to write:( Well I suppose all is going well though being there has been progress on all fronts. I hope all is going well for all of you!
xoxo,
J. Lea


February 2016
Greetings Gnomies! Life has been extremely busy lately and it has been difficult to find writing time. Wedding planning is exciting, however time consuming. Also I have been a bit under the weather lately but I am slowly making progress on my writing. I will be launching a new website near to summer and will have other writing tangents on there including: wedding crafting (as it has been consuming my time), short stories outside of Fairoria, a real blog, reviews, and perhaps a vlog I am preparing t start. With all that being said I have a lot of work to do (now to find the hours to create such).

January 2016
Greetings Gnomies! Happy New Year!!! The days are getting longer and everything is looking up. I have learned a great deal in the last month including: sales are good, the wording of a description is everything (mine does not do my novel justice), also finding time to write while working and wedding planning can be difficult. Don’t worry writing wins a majority of the time. I am preparing a short story for a contest so there might be an absence of a Hakala Tale this month. I am also preparing to work on my second website which I plan to launch this Spring! With all that being said I have a lot to work on so be prepared to take a journey with me down the rabbit hole!

December 2015
Greetings Gnomies! It has been a crazy few weeks. I have been learning a lot from this venture like: people who say I cannot wait until your book comes out because it sounds awesome, do not always mean it; self-advertising is horrifying; and sometimes people can be downright cruel; but I shall keep going! If not for them, for me as a good tale deserves its page space.Though I am suffering from a high dose of depression I will keep going! On a positive note I plan to shoot a few YouTube videos this month to have a little fun with my favorite characters birthday! Kaspara’s birthday is December 21st so watch for the link here on www.fairoria.com.

November 2015
Greetings Gnomies! I fianlly did it! “Fairy Tainted” is now available for Amazon Kindle. It is the perfect book to read while dodging Greedy Thursday sales (sorry Target Thanksgiving is not for sales it is for family take a play out of TJ Max’s playbook won’t you?) or any other holiday functions and fatigue many of you suffer from this season. As the weather is getting colder I have gone into writing mode so prepare yourself for updates on the sequel along with more “Gnome Tales”.

October 2015
Happy Haunting!!! This is my favorite month of the year. “Fairy Tainted” is now back from professional editing and formatting and I am just polishing it up. As soon as I get a cover designed I shall set an official release date for the novel you have all been waiting for! Watch for a countdown on the homepage when the date becomes set. Two new Gnome Tales should appear in the near future, however, I must admit I have been lagging as I have been abnormally busy.

September 2015
Wow! It is Fall already. The leaves are changing and I am beginning to focus once more on writing the sequel to “Fairy Tainted”! Due to illness and editing I have not gotten as many “Gnome Tales” completed as promised but check back the end of this month I should have two or three to make up for it! As usual those who read this will be the first to know when my novels are released.
xoxo,

August 2015
Greetings to all you Gnomies! Looks more and more like “Fairy Tainted” will be released in late September/ early October!!! Several “Gnome Tales” will be coming down the pipeline and released soon in anticipation of the novel release. I will keep you posted on updates as they happen!

July 2015
Greetings “Fairy Tainted” will be going through one last edit before release as soon as funding is acquired. I am still planning on a Fall 2015 release. I am still currently writing the sequel and there will be more “Gnome Tales” shortly. Thanks for your support.
