Hello! So you’re interested in little ol’ me?
I’m Selenity Jade, which is an online persona of a very real person. That’s a picture of me at my super cool day job. (I’m the one with the purple hat.)
I’ve been Selenity Jade online for probably 18 years now. Nope, I am not exaggerating. In fact, I once got recognized in World of Warcraft around 10 years ago from someone who knew my name for my fanfiction stories. Even the Internet can be a small world sometimes!
I hope you’ll forgive me for using my online name. It’s way cooler than my legal name and I try to keep my online presence separate from my real life. In this case, I’m keeping business separate from personal.
I am in no way hiding my real name or my online persona from each other as over the last two decades, they’ve kind of merged. If anyone desperately wants my real name, I have included my personal Facebook account below.
I’m a coffee addict, avid (and obsessive) reader, planner nerd, barn and feral cat rescuer, gamer, and writer who happens to work with horses and gets paid crap for it. I love my day job though. Playing with racehorses every single morning is freaking amazing!
I’m an very anxious introvert who loves animals and they love me back. I’m often seen walking around the barns with a cat (or five) following me.
I claimed the name Selenity Jade in 1999, I believe, and I will always be Selenity Jade. In fact, I am the ONLY Selenity Jade on the net! I can always find it available on social media or as a username. It started as a penname and became who I am online.
I built my first website around 2001, and I had to learn HTML to do it. It was challenging, time-consuming and so fun.
I started book blogging about five years ago but a huge, dramatic change in my life caused that to be put on hold. My cousin currently runs my site, but I loved it. It let me continue writing except I was writing to help people discover new books instead of writing cheesy Dragonball Z romance fanfiction, no matter how popular it was.
In December 2018, I decided to stop screwing around and joined a platform called Wealthy Affiliate. I needed to learn how to create a successful blog in today’s online world and monetize it. After seeing some seriously expensive and scammy, pushy programs out there, this platform was a breath of fresh air.
Currently, I have three websites online. I work seven days a week at a stress-free job loving on racehorses. I basically throw money away rescuing cats and kittens around the barns who need help. I participate in the TNR of community cats. I volunteer for a local cat non-profit. I work online part-time, writing and blogging, basically building my business. I manage two Facebook pages and one Facebook group.
I read. I am single. A woman. A mama to two wonderful cats, three barn cats, and miltiple foster cats. I am in the southern United States, far from family and friends, but we speak often. This is my life. I love it!
I actually don’t remember a time when I wasn’t a reader. As far back as I can remember, I was always reading. I devoured school reading assignments in a day. But I never really felt that I was a reader until I picked up my very first series, The Baby-Sitters Club. I don’t even remember how old I was.
From there I read Judy Blume and other similar authors. Then strangely enough, I jumped straight into Piers Anthony’s Xanth series. From there it was a short step to other fantasy such as Mercedes Lackey’s Heralds of Valdemar series, Anne McCaffrey’s Dragonriders of Pern series, and many others. I devoured Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series, Melanie Rawn’s Dragon Prince series, and Kate Elliott’s Crown of Stars series.
I started to realize that all my favorite books and series contained one key element: romance. So I finally opened a romance novel but because I was such a fantasy lover I started with paranormal romances. After that, I devoured anything romance, which is my current reading addiction.
Of course, back then, I was reading paper books. I absolutely refused to get an e-reader at first. But life got in the way, and I found myself buying one when I changed my job. When one moves around the country in the course of her work with racehorses, one cannot keep relocating an entire library. Enter the e-reader.
I was faced with a dilemma. With so many devices out there, which e-reader would be the best one for me? What does all the technical stuff really mean?
I made my choice. But I often see other people ask this question when first deciding to go electronic. Some people need a device easy on the eyes, some need cheaper, some want waterproof or no glare. Some people prefer a tablet. Most readers don’t understand all the technical specifications either and some of us don’t even care!
I decided to compare different devices and different brands and free reading apps, all on one site to make shopping for them so much easier. I include the occasional announcement, programs and services retailers offer so you all can get the most out of your digital reading experience.
I decided to do this without going into all the technical specifications. I just want it to do what I need. I don’t need the fastest speed or refresh page speed. Just as long as it WORKS, I am happy. And I found out that I’m not the only one who feels this way.
Thus, E-readers by Jade was born.
If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below or email me. I will be more than happy to help.
