Mark Your Calendar

I've got a lot of cool things for you today.  It's gonna be a great Friday! An interview, a new short short story, publication news, and even tour dates. So, let's not waste any time and get to it!

Interview
In an effort to help spread the word about my new Asylum Tales series and the upcoming release of Angel's Ink as well as the recent releases of the two novellas, Urban Fantasy Land has  posted an interview I participated in.  I talk about the new series, writing, and all the usual good stuff.  To read the interview, just click here.

School's In short story
Literary Escapism is running a series through the month of September to celebrate the start of another school year.  The book site has gathered together a large group of writers and gotten them to torture their characters into telling stories about their time school.  With a little work, I got my new main character Gage to talk about grade school.  To read the short story and to enter the giveaway, just click here.

Got a book you're trying to publish?
Have you been working on a science-fiction or fantasy novel that you've been trying to get published but haven't found an agent or publisher yet?  Well, you're in luck.  For two weeks in October, HarperCollins will be accepted unagented COMPLETED manuscripts for consideration for publication.  This is an extremely rare opportunity that you don't want to pass up. For more details, click here.

Tour Dates!!!
To celebrate the upcoming release of Angel's Ink, I will be doing a mini-book tour.  This will be your chance to get a signed copy of my books, ask me questions, and get all the behind-the-scenes dirty details.  These are the details on the appearances as I currently have them.  I will post more details as information comes in.

Hey Jocelynn, I was just wondering if you ever announced the winners to your contest at the Supernatural Underground? I thought winners were usually posted on the post, but I didn't see anything.

Did you email them by chance? That answers my question if you did.

I was just wondering is all! :)

Have a GREAT day!
