Author website:

Super excited that I’ve finally taken the leap. I started planning it way too many years ago. The need to have an author website. But I kept putting it off for two reasons. First, I wasn’t sure if I was ready to make the investment it would cost when I’m not earning anything from my writing yet. And second because I felt like I wasn’t “there” yet.

Where’s there, you ask? The place of feeling authentic. Like a real author. A professional author. The place where many of my fiction books are still in formative stages—not ready to submit to an agent or editor. Although, I have pitched a couple of them at conferences and even submitted them to a handful of agents. I received some very kind rejection letters.

But three things occurred recently that made me realize I needed to stop being an amateur and act like a real author.

  • One of my short stories was accepted in an anthology!!! Super excited. Details will follow on once I get the marketing go ahead.
  • I type the end to the first book in my Space Trilogy!!! Again. Super excited. I’ve only been working on it for five years. I’m a very slow writer. Still some needed edits and rewrites before it’s ready for submission. But I already have book two half written.
  • I begin a concentrated and concerted effort on the sixth book in the Be Still photo devotional series. Which means I have five books available for sale on Amazon. (Six if you count the companion devotional I wrote for Explore.

Three BIG reasons to finally make the leap. That and I celebrated a “season of life” birthday recently. So, I’d say it’s time.

Here’s a quick snapshot of the soon to be live website. Just waiting for the domain name link.

And that blank space below my name. That will be the future home of the anthology book cover and information on where to order.

I have purchase links to all the Be Still photo devotionals and a little bit about the Space Trilogy I’m writing. I also have information of upcoming events where I’m selling my books and have a chance to meet you. I’ll provide status updates on the books I’m working on and there’s a place to sign up for my newsletter, which will have snippets of pages (inside look) from my stories.

Hop on over to Can’t wait to see you there.


About Jill English Johnston

God writes His story on every heart, if we only pause to read it. My heart has lived in a fantasy world since early childhood and am delighted that God has finally brought me to the place where I can bring the fantasies to life through story. I am currently working on a fantasy trilogy (of course) but I also post thoughts, reflections and (hopefully) inspiration to my website: I am a follower of the Rabbi Jesus, married to my best friend and inspiration, and the mother of three incredible children, one daughter and two sons, a son-in-love, a daughter-in-love and two adorable granddaughters. When not writing, I passionately pursue prayer, reading (never enough time to read them all!), and the outdoors. My husband and I both served in the US Navy and have lived/travelled through many states and all over Asia. We both still enjoy travelling, but we really love our home in New Braunfels, located at the Texas Hill Country.
