Wondering what you should do when you’re finally ready to publish your book?

The simple answer? Start. Pull it out of the drawer or find it on your hard drive, and start. That’s all!

Just ask Joanna VanderVlugt.

In January 2019, @jcvartstudio wrote us and said “screw it.” She was going to pull out one of three COMPLETED manuscripts that she hadn’t touched since 2008, out of her drawer and take the leap.
Six months after Joanna made the decision to self publish her manuscript, Joanna’s debut book – #theunravelling– launched, turning her from writer to published author. Six months! And all it took was one decision: to start.

Jo, look what taking the leap did!!!
For those of you looking for a page-turner, The Unravelling is now available on Amazon. And for those of you who just like to support people following their dreams, doing talented things – give her a follow – @jcvartstudio.


Here’s what you can expect from this Canadian legal thriller!

Jade Thyme celebrates successfully defending Jules Cranbury on a murder charge. Her celebration is short-lived when she finds Jules murdered. Jade investigates and uncovers a secret justice society whose members hide behind white tabs and black robes while delivering their own vigilante justice. Jade locates a once prominent and respected lawyer, now known as Noxzema Man, homeless and panhandling in Fan Tan Alley. He warns Jade. Judges, lawyers and police make up the Society. Trust no one. The MotoCityDolls, her sister’s all-female motorcycle gang, save Jade from a Society assassin. Forced to take a leave of absence, Jade packs up her office, but not before coming face-to-face with another assassin–Jules’s murderer.
