All About AJ

I’m a quiet nut with the earned middle name of trouble. I've earned it. As a reporter for my high school paper, I wrote a few controversial articles concerning the teachers’ lounge, the cafeteria lunches and Mickey Mouse and thus spent a few hours speaking to the principal. Later became the editor of the paper and the story continued.

My parents wanted me to be a teacher. I didn’t. So life took me in a different direction and I put my writing to the side. One day, after twenty years of PTO and team mom duties under my belt, and with the empty nest symptom on my horizon I decided it was time to fulfill my dream. I found RWA, started typing, submitted, got rejected, cried, blew nose, learned some more and repeated the process more times than I care to admit. Then BINGO, I found judges and editors who loved my voice. Now I have four books published. My newest release is an romantic suspense titled SEIZED BY DARKNESS. I hope you'll check it out at www.autumnjordon.com.

I’m married to my hero who aspires me. I have five great kids and five adorable grandchildren with two more on the way.

With God’s blessing, I hope to have decades more with my DH by my side, a dozen more grandchildren so that I can spoil them, and a hundred published novels .

MY DRYWALL HAS A HOLE IN IT!

I was going to title this blog ‘I’m pissed’ but it’s not about me being pissed as a writer but more so as a reader who recently mentally threw a digital book I bought for $5.99 against the wall. Why? Because the author totally, blatantly portrayed the book to be romantic suspense and she stated […]

I Hate You

Okay. I bet the second you read my blog title an ex-significant other popped into your mind and you’re recalling what it was about him or her that caused conflict between the two of you and ended the bond.  Think back to the turning point in your relationship. Was it something he did or didn’t […]

RWA NATIONAL IS OVER. I WANT THE DIRT.

The 2017 National RWA conference is over. From all the posts that came to us who stayed at home, it was a fabulous event. You didn’t have to be in Orlando to feel the energy. It sizzled across the net. Kudos to the RWA staff for pulling off  this super conference. You are amazing and […]

Are You At RWA National? This Contest Is For You.

Shhh. My sisters didn’t know I did this, but I thought if you’re at the RWA National conference you should know Rubies there too.  Find them. Take a selfie with them (ask permission first) and post it at https://www.facebook.com/RubySlipperedSisterhood/ and be entered into a contest for three digital Ruby books, your choice, from Amazon. (Sorry. […]

WE ARE ONE

NOTE: This blog might seem like a me blog but there are important lessons to learn. If you would ask any of my elementary, junior high or high school classmates, or teachers for that matter, to describe in one word what I was like in school, you’d probably hear the words quiet, nice, shy, friendly, […]

BYE, BYE, BABY

We’re gearing up for a very long holiday weekend, so we’ll have a lot of time (HA!) to read, write and think about the important things in our lives. And what is more important than our families? Not a thing. Since many of us have children or grandchildren heading into the world on their own, I thought […]

How Do You Find Your Characters

Many years ago, I was like a shaky legged fawn stepping into the world of writing. I had written before, for myself and for my school newspapers, but this new world was totally different and scary as hell. I knew if I was going to survive I would need a strong man by my side […]

Quick. What’s Your Story About?

With Nationals only ten weeks away, I thought I might address the subject of loglines and blurbs. (Ten week is not long. Trust me, especially during summer and when the kids are out of school.) Now is the time to think about them, so you can brand the log lines in your thoughts. You can even practice […]
