Hello again,

I hope all my friends and fans from the U.S. had a great 4th of July. If you’re not from the U.S., I hope you’re having a great month all the same. July is shaping up to be an exciting time. I have a lot of announcements to tell you about, to let’s get started:

Events: First, I want to thank everyone who attended the Vampyres in July Reader Appreciation Party on Facebook, and congratulations again to all our winners! Your prizes will be in the mail soon.

Next, I will be attending two book signing events near my hometown this month. So if you’re going to be in the southern Wisconsin area on the 19th or 26th, come on out at meet me! Details can be found here.

Writing Update: Edits for Athena’s Oracle, the prequel to the Ema Marx series, are just about finalized and we are looking at an August 2014 release date. I’m so excited to share Jalmari’s and Leena’s story with the rest of the world.

I’m currently planning a cover reveal for Athena’s Oracle. If you own a book blog or Facebook page and would like to participate, please send me an email with your name and a link to your blog or page to with the subject line “Athena’s Oracle Cover Reveal.”

What I’m Reading: Last month, I finished reading Sixth Grave on the Edge by Darynda Jones. Talk about great summer reading! Jones’ Grave series is good old fashion comedic fun, with a dose of drop-dead sexy. I love this series so much, I had the S.O. pre-order the next installment, Seventh Grave and No Body.

I’m currently reading City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare. Anyone who’s been following me on facebook knows I’m a diehard Shadowhunter fan. I even added the Shadowhunters Codex to my library. I know many of you have already read CoHF, but I’m dreading the ending and prolonging it as much as humanly possible. No spoilers, please! ;-)

Have a great rest of the summer.

Until next time,

J.D. Brown
