Publishing Deals, The Use of Scent in Writing and More!


Jaye Wells talks about the use of scent in her writing.

Fantasy Debut has an interview with Jennifer Rardin. Here is snippage:

Tell us a little bit about the Jaz Parks series.

The books follow legendary CIA assassins, Vayl the vampire and his assistant Jaz, as they move through their missions. Which, of course, involve killing nasty, power-hungry creatures who’d just as soon bite your head off as look at you. Then they’d probably suck out your soul and pronounce it claw-lickin’ good because, you know, they’re usually raging maniacs with scary supah powers.
