Judian James
Gender: Female
Born: July 19th
Interests: Writing, racewalking, photography, collecting just about anything when I have more than one.
Member: Standard
Joined: September 2007

Judian's submission for her chapbook, "Levitate," was accepted by a poets' publishing house in New York at the beginning of 2009. FootHills Publishing printed "Levitate" that June and it is available through FootHills Publishing's web site under "books for 2009". Consequently, they contacted her in January 2010, asking for a second book submission twice as long! "Resonate" is the newest product of her efforts, which was just released, August 2010! If you should choose to buy either of Judian's books, please PM her and she will be happy to send you a personalized bookplate. She thanks you! Each book is a unique work of art from the elegant papers used to the outstanding cover artwork.

Judian James comes from generations of proud eccentrics. She collects antique miniature chairs (she has hundreds), books (she has HUNDREDS) and chapstick (she has no idea why she does this, realizing she only uses one at a time, and they're not particularly attractive for display purposes).

She loves all the usual kinds of things ... her family, friends, pets, chocolate, walks at sunrise and of course, fireflies! She also enjoys, in her quirky sort of way, ironing all of her bedding and changing the pillowcases each and every day for heavenly dreams!

She can be found, most days, whirling like a dervish, because she needs to be active at all times. She missed the "Patience Line" at birth, and has a very difficult time waiting for just about anything! This can be a tad of a handicap at times, especially in a big city.

She writes because she discovered she could at a very young age, and has never looked back! Besides, she needed a creative outlet and chose not to be in band or chorus as a kid.

Judian decided it was time for a photographic update when she realized her original photo posted here was taken fourteen years ago!

    ulster3: People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered; Forgive them anyway.
    If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; Be kind anyway.
    If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies; Succeed anyway.
    If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; Be honest and frank anyway.
    What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; Build anyway.
    If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; Be happy anyway.
    The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; Do good anyway.
    Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough; Give the world the best you've got anyway.

Judian James: Hi there everyone!

To all of you who are interested, my second book,
"Resonate" has been released through my publisher,
FootHills Publishing. It is a VERY good day indeed!
August 25, 2010 at 10:50AM
    Thesis: WooHoo! Congratulations, Jude. Wonderful news.
    August 26, 2010 at 11:55AM
    Judian James: Thanks John. I appeciate your good wishes. This is my second book with FootHills Publishing. After their acceptance of my first submission in January or '09 for "Levitate", they actually contacted me this past January to put together a second book. It took a bit longer than expected this time but the book is twice as big!
    You can take a look without being obligated to buy a thing by going into their web site and clicking on "new releases for 2010" and then scrolling down to my name. Thanks again
