Welcome to My New Home! (Plus Great Big News!)


Welcome to the new home of The Great Big Jump–a one-stop portal for everything Stella-related. Not only will you find five years’ worth of blog entries on this self-hosted site (migrated with the help of some wonderful folks) but there’s also a dedicated section for my books, which you can find on the menu ribbon at the top of the page.

Why make the switch, you ask? Simple: I just wanted a site that really feels like home–a place where everyone knows where to find me. I wanted a place that I could manage easily without giving me the endless headaches that I got from Blogger. (I won’t go into details, but if you’ve ever had a blog on Blogger, we can talk forever about this.) But most importantly, I wanted to have a fresh start–and after the year that I just had, I think that a new beginning is in order.

I hope that you enjoy this new and improved blog! Send me an email (hello@stellatorresauthor.com) or message me on Twitter (@TheStellaTorres) and let me know what you think! 🙂


In other news, I just approved the proof for the CreateSpace edition of Crushingly Close, which means that we’ll be seeing the international paperback edition on Amazon and other distribution channels pretty soon! (And just in time for Christmas, too!) It has the same cover and content as the Philippine edition, so expect the same great adventures from Agnes, Daniel, and the gang. Links will be posted as soon as everything is confirmed! 🙂

Love, Stella
