New On My Shelf This Week

‘Feel Me Fall’ landed on my virtual shelf, courtesy of the author himself and as the result of a comment I had posted, following a review of the book published by fellow blogger Lauren @ ‘Always Me‘.

James (Jim) Morris, decided to share a few personal and professional facts and details by way of introduction, so I hope that you will also enjoy this additional short guest post…

FEEL ME FALL‘ – Secrets and survival in the Amazon

Cover Image 'Feel Me Fall' By James MorrisEmily Duran is the sole survivor of a plane crash that left her and her teenage friends stranded and alone in the jungles of the Amazon. Lost and losing hope, they struggle against the elements, and each other.

But can she carry the burden of the past?


Discover the gripping new adventure novel that explores who we are when no one is watching, and how far we’ll go in order to survive.

Image Of Author James MorrisI grew up in a small town outside of Chicago, and I felt I had the best of both worlds: a place with corn and cows and under 5,000 people next to a large city where we could go on weekends.

I’ve loved storytelling as far back as I can remember, and I knew I would someday head west to Hollywood. After college, that’s exactly what I did. I jumped in a U-Haul, and I now call Los Angeles home.

I am a creative professional with over ten years of experience in digital, business and creative writing, providing cross-media content solutions. I have worked with companies such as NBC.com and the health care industry, copywriting, blogging and editing.
As a former television writer with produced credits including “Smallville” and “Crossing Jordan,” I worked with a team of writers pitching, crafting and following ideas from concept to script to final episode. This necessitated the ability to deliver within tight deadlines, on budget, while integrating notes from various stakeholders. I love brainstorming ideas for seemingly intractable problems.
I have also taught screenwriting at UCLA Extension, which focused on the art of short films, where through lectures, assignments and screenings, I guided students towards the completion of a short script.
I continue to learn about the ever-evolving world of social and content marketing, and my goal is to take my love of storytelling and help corporations tell their own stories, as well as continuing to write my own.

It’s been a whirlwind of the past many years, working on TV shows, enduring the ups-and-downs of a writing career, and now writing books, among other things to make a living. Writing has never been a traditional career, and it’s often a blessing or a curse, and feast or famine. But it’s always been interesting. My response to my career depends on the day or month, but what I am certain of is that I’ve been very lucky to spend my life with my wife, Melissa, and our dogs, both deceased and living.

I do my best to stay balanced by enjoying the sunny weather, and taking advantage of paddle-boarding, hiking, bike riding, and hopefully soon, surfing. It’s always been a dream of mine, and it tickles me that a boy who grew up in the Midwest might very well surf the waves of the Pacific. I used to play video games, but it simply took too much time away from my life, and I try very hard to live it, rather than get sucked into distractions. It’s a work in progress, as am I.

As a writer, you often feel invisible. No one is waiting for what you are writing; life goes on as you sit behind your computer. So it’s nice to know that my work has created these tiny ripples. I have to remind myself I’m not as invisible as I think I am.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
