Tomorrow's Guest: Jess Lourey
Tomorrow, mystery and YA (young adult) author Jess Lourey will be a guest on my blog. Jess is the author of the critically-acclaimed Murder by Month Mysteries. The eighth, December Dread, will be released October 2012. In a starred review of the seventh, November Hunt, Booklist writes, "It's not easy to make people laugh while they're on the edge of their seats, but Lourey pulls it off!" The Toadhouse Trilogy: Book One, the first in her young adult series that celebrates the power of stories, will be released August 2012. Jess teaches writing and sociology at a Minnesota community college, is a member of The Loft and Sisters in Crime, and serves on the national board of the Mystery Writers of America.
In her guest post tomorrow, Jess talks about why she went from traditionally publishing mysteries to self publishing young adult novels. I'm sure you'll be intrigued by what she has to say. Then, feel free to ask her some questions in the comments.
