Book Birthdays: DRAW THE DARK, MERMAID'S MIRROR & MAGICIAN'S MUSE

All the great new Fall books are starting to pop up in stores, including some books of mine! These titles all have October "on sale" dates, but... they are in fact all available now.  So I decided, why wait to brag?  Get your paws on them, you won't be disappointed. 

Now I present OCTOBER RELEASES, in alphabetical order by author, with no further ado, this time I mean it:

DRAW THE DARK by Ilsa J. Bick,  Carolrhoda Lab  Christian's parents disappeared when he was a little boy, and ever since hes drawn and painted obsessively, trying to remember his mother. The problem is, Christian doesn't just draw his own memories. He can draw the thoughts of those around him. And the things he draws...they tend to die.

 

MERMAID'S MIRROR by LK Madigan, Houghton 
Lena has lived her whole life near the beach - walking for miles up and down the shore and breathing the salty air, swimming in the cold water, and watching the surfers rule the waves - the problem is, she's spent her whole life just watching. Yet something lures Lena to the water ... an ancient, powerful magic. *starred review, Booklist* 

 
MAGICIAN'S MUSE by Linda Joy Singleton, Flux
In the thrilling climax to The Seer series, Sabine's psychic abilities, sleuthing skills, and courage are pushed to a dangerous edge as she deals with the mysterious disappearance of her ex-boyfriend Josh, a new threat against her boyfriend Dominic, evil magicians--and a coldblooded murder.

  1. Looks like a meaty list full of mystery. I'm wondering if this list represents a shift in the industry? Seriously, those books are shining some light.

  2. Well, Julie, it might also signal my own preferences rather than the state of the industry as a whole... but thanks for the kind words! More to come later this fall...

  3. Oh they all look good but Mermaid's Mirror looks very interesting!

    I had a question for you, Jennifer. We've been talking in my writing group about YA literature, and the majority feels it is harder to sell contemporary romance, coming-of-age type tales than it is to sell a paranormal/fantasy story. What is your opinion on this?

    Have a wonderful weekend!!
