Introducing JJ Books
Illustration, Nature, Self Reliant People
Posted on: 4th July 2011
This is the JJ Books blog. JJ Books is me, JJ, in book publishing mode. Most people know me as John Jackson which, loosely interpreted, means a chap who is the son of a chap. That is how I started life and how I expect to end it.
Why did I establish JJ Books?
As a lawyer and businessman I have spent some 60 years helping others to grow their enterprises.
I thought it was time to start one of my own. JJ Books is it and its creation reflects also my deep belief in the importance of self reliance (doing things for oneself) and its relation to personal enterprise and freedom.
What does JJ Books publish?
The first few publications from JJ Books have been material that I have written myself over the years. Our books reflect my love of the natural world, my interest in people with their strengths and weaknesses and, particularly, my liking for an occasional escape with others into the world of fantasy.
The Illustrator: Daniela Jaglenka Terrazzini
The door to fantasy is best opened with the help of a talented illustrator. That is why my brilliant collaborator, Daniela Jaglenka Terrazzini, has played such an important role in the fashioning of what JJ Books offers.
