J. F. Weckesser

Biography

Legends and myths of lost continents intrigue J.F. Weckesser, and while studying in the Rosicrucian Order, AMORC, and the Association for Research and Enlightenment, one day “Time Odyssey: The Soul’s Memory” began to unfold.
Weckesser believes even our greatest heroes and masters were human, and probably struggled with hopes, fears, desires, misgivings, lapses of judgment, joys and sorrows—especially during ‘interesting times.’ It is the rising above these roadblocks that make the hero.
J.F. Weckesser lives in Wisconsin, where her imagination runs wild.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Milwaukee with four siblings. I seemed to be happiest in my daydreams, as our household was rather crazy. I recall grand fantasy-world dreams I had as a very young child, which I didn't want to wake up from; so I'd lie awake with my eyes closed, adding to the dream, expanding the story, day after day—like a soap opera for this 3-year-old.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
As I’ve worked on my book, I’ve become more and more frustrated with the publishing world. I’m not a schmoozer, and the thought of writers’ conferences, attempts to charm prospective agents, devious ways for editors to notice my manuscript in a pile of slush, etc., makes my knees weak. I simply haven’t the personality for this. When I learned about Smashwords, I nearly cheered out loud. At last, a place for me!

Smashwords book reviews by J. F. Weckesser

  • Sword of the Gods: The Chosen One on Sep. 07, 2013

    I really do like this novel, but I'm only giving it a 3-1/2 star rather than a 4 star (saving the 5 stars for the Dan Brown/JK Rowling/Taylor Caldwell-type authors). The writing is good, the plot is very good, the characters are likable or unlikable; the problem is, the book severely needs copy editing. If the author can't afford a professional proofreader, I suggest brushing up on some basic proofing skills, especially possessives. There are dozens and dozens and dozens of possessive errors, which is distracting. I kept going because I was enjoying the story, but others may just stop reading. Please, dear author, don't be discouraged by my suggestions. You're a very good writer with a great story to tell. But it lacks professionalism when you don't seem to know the difference between goddess, goddesses, goddess's, goddesses'; family, families, family's, families'; also lay and lie, hanger and hangar, etc. And, decide which spelling you'd like to keep: Jophiel or Joffiel, and then change every one to that spelling. Oh, and would it be possible to put a Hyperlink between the characters list at the beginning and, say, the character in the title of each chapter? I was getting confused trying to remember who the good guys and bad guys are. The story is quite complex, which is super, but I need a bit of help sometimes. I will be buying the second book of the series (and probably more), because I MUST know what happens! It's that good, so please don't be disheartened. It simply needs proofreading, and with e-books, it is either the author's responsibility, or you must hire a professional (not an acquaintance who 'seems good at that stuff). I wish you well, and hope you keep writing. Thanks!
