Surviving Your Survival Job(s)

By Jennifer Bowen on Sunday, February 12th, 2017 in BookHive Corp, Writing. No Comments

If you are an artist, chances are you have (or have had) your fair share of survival jobs. If you’re lucky, your survival job is something you actually love doing. If you’re extra lucky, you make enough money with your art, in which case I hate you. (Not actually. I’m just jealous. Rock on, you […]


Pop-up Libraries!

By Jennifer Bowen on Sunday, February 5th, 2017 in BookHive Corp, Novels. No Comments

Recently in Washington, DC I stumbled upon a small shelf of books up for borrow. It was part of a project aptly titled Little Free Library, and its goal is to supply people all over with these tiny and spontaneous literary outlets. One of the most exciting parts of Little Free Library is that anyone […]


Finding Motivation When You Feel Like You Just CAN’T

By Jennifer Bowen on Wednesday, January 18th, 2017 in BookHive Corp, Novels, Research, Writing. No Comments

It’s no secret that the political climate in our country lately has been…less than comfortable. It’s easy to feel totally trapped and caught in this bubble, and perhaps overwhelmed by the prospects of what’s to come. While traveling, I learned that so much of the world looks to America to foreshadow their own political movements, […]

I had the unbelievable pleasure of spending the end of 2016 and beginning of 2017 traveling in Thailand and Cambodia. I am a huge travel fanatic- along with acting and writing, it is one of my life’s greatest passions. And while traveling, I always like to have a book or two for the plane/train rides […]

As we say adieu to 2016 (which many people are relieved about), I thought we could recap on some of the best books of the year- at least, according to myself and some of my well-read friends. The new year is certainly a time for new beginnings, a refresh and restart for everyone. Perhaps you’ve […]


Staying Sane Between Projects

By Jennifer Bowen on Sunday, December 18th, 2016 in BookHive Corp. No Comments

Whenever I’ve had the opportunity to ask questions of my role models (both actors and writers), my number one ask is, “How do you stay sane when you’re not working?” Almost everyone has had variations on the same response: find another artistic outlet that will help fuel your creativity, and remind you that you like […]


How and When to Walk Away From a Project

By Jennifer Bowen on Tuesday, December 13th, 2016 in BookHive Corp. No Comments

If you’re anything like me, knowing when to step away from your work is not always the easiest task. Or even close to the realm of easy tasks. I usually like to have one or two trustworthy friends look at my work before I send it out, and before that I’ve been known to mull […]
