Agent Spotlight & Agent Spotlight Updates

  • Agent Spotlights & Interviews have been updated through the letter "K" as of 3/28/2024 and many have been reviewed by the agents. Look for more information as I find the time to update more agent spotlights.


Today I'm excited to participate in the  Who Will You Entice? Blog Tour celebrating the release of ENTICE, the second book in Jessica Shirvington's EMBRACE series. It releases September 4, 2012. It's already gotten great reviews.

Here's a description from Amazon:

Every day Violet Eden wonders whether she made the right choice.

She still doesn't fully understand these powers she's been granted as a half-angel Grigori.  And worse, isn't even sure she's capable of using them. Stab someone through the heart? Really?
No matter how bad things get, though, Violet doesn't run and she doesn't quit. Even if it means she can never allow herself to love the guy she longs for. Even if it means asking her enemy for help.

Even if no one is telling her the truth.

The war between Exiles and Angels is on—and she's wanted by both sides.

And Amazon had this short review from Kirkus Review:

"Strong, compelling and wonderfully flawed, Violet is the kind of heroine that will keep readers enthralled and rooting for her until the final page is turned . . .This is one emotional thrill ride, filled with passion and suspense, ending with a cliffhanger that will leave readers panting for the next book." - Kirkus Reviews

Doesn't this sound fantastic?

Sourcebooks, Jessica's publisher, has provided an ARC for a giveaway.  To enter, all you need to do is be a follower (just click the follow button if you’re not a follower) and leave a comment by September 22nd. I’ll announce the winner on September 24th. If your e-mail is not on Blogger, please list it in your comment. International entries are welcome.

If you mention this contest on Twitter, Facebook, or your blog, mention this in the comments and I'll give you an extra entry. 

And don't forget all my other awesome contests at the top of the blog including for SKYLARK, a fantastic debut dystopian/fantasy, SEND, a contemporary story about bullying told from a male POV, and ENDLESSLY, the final book in Kiersten White's series. 

Here's what's coming up next. And so you know, I have a lot of fantastic things happening in September and October. So be sure to stop back and enter all the contests.

Monday I'm interviewing Mady for my ASK THE EXPERT series. She's Matt MacNish's daughter. His blog, The Quintessentially Questionable Query Experiment, is a great blog for authors. And I'll be giving away a copy of THE PECULIAR, an awesome fantasy/steampunk story, by Stefan Bachmann. It got so much buzz at BEA that I was dying to read it. I can't believe I was lucky enough to get an ARC to share with you.

Next Wednesday I'll be sharing some awesome news about one of our followers and helping her celebrate with a big giveaway. That's all I can say for now, so come back on Wednesday to learn more.

The following Monday I'm helping Kat Zhang celebrate her debut with an interview and giveaway of WHAT'S LEFT OF ME. I fell in love with this book from page 1. It was so awesome. I can't wait to share it with you.

And don't forget our Tuesday Tips and Casey's Thursday agent spotlights.

Hope to see you Monday!

Ooh, a book about a half-angel? Sign me up! I'm also curious about this steampunk fantasy you mentioned. I just finished Westerfield's Leviathan trilogy, and steampunk is now a craving I can't satisfy.

I enjoyed the first book in this series. More so than most other Angel novels. I'm eager to read the next in the series.
