I'm a USA Today and international bestselling author. I consider myself a displaced New Yorker with a penchant for the silly, the obscure, and the fantastical. These days, you can find me in the Tampa area. I'm currently working on the H&W Investigations urban fantasy series and the Blackhollow Academy young adult/new adult contemporary fantasy series. Find out more about my books, drop me a line, or join my mailing list at www.jesshaines.com! ...more

Hi Joyce,

Thanks so much for writing me. I'm glad you enjoyed my work enough to reach out! I'm in the process of writing the next Blackhollow Academy book, CANDLE AND HORN. I don't have a release date yet, but it is coming. If you'd like to stay informed about my progress, you can sign up for my newsletter at www.JessHaines.com -- I promise I don't spam too much.

Best,
