I’ve just signed up to Agent Hunter and am staggered at the number of UK agents listed, each with a more or less detailed description of their interests and the genres they are keen to represent.

This month I have the privilege of chatting with Jocelynn Babcock, author of the paranormal mystery series MANTIC, paranormal novella series SE*MANTIC, and paranormal mystery RO*MANTIC.
What would you guess from her photo? Is she romantic, musical and a bit shy? There’s some mystery there, I’d say. Continue reading

Here’s the link.
I’ve done this in aid of a Philippine project to make books available to the general public by opening libraries in public schools around the country.

Here’s the draft cover for my book. I’d be interested to hear how it comes over. All comments are most welcome.
