After several years as a magazine editor and freelance writer, Jaye Wells finally decided to leave the facts behind and make up her own reality. Her overactive imagination and life-long fascination with the arcane and freakish blended nicely with this new career path. Her Sabina Kane urban fantasy series is a blend of dark themes, grave stakes and wicked humor. Jaye lives in Texas with her saintly husband and devilish son.

Jaye is the author of the amazing Sabina Kane series, which includes Red-Headed Stepchild or The Mage in Black, and I’m sure you’re just dying to ask her a couple of questions. The third novel, Green-Eyed Demon, is scheduled for a March 2011 release.
In a world where being of mixed-blood is a major liability, Sabina doesn’t really fit in. And being an assassin – the only profession fit for an outcast – doesn’t help matters. But she’s never brought her work home. Until now.
Her latest mission is uncomfortably complex, and threatens the fragile peace between the vampire and mage races. As Sabina scrambles to figure out which side she’s on, she uncovers a tangled political web, some nasty facts about her family and some unexpected new talents. Any of these things could be worryingly life-changing, but together, they could be fatal …
This time, it’s personal.
The Mage in Black
Sabina Kane doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to family. After all, her own grandmother, leader of the vampire race, wants her dead. So when she arrives in New York to meet her mage relatives, the reunion puts the fun in dysfunctional. Not only is mage culture completely bizarre, but everyone seems to think she’s some kind of ‘Chosen’ who’ll unite the dark races. Sabina doesn’t care who chose her, she’s not into destiny.
But the mages aren’t Sabina’s only problem. In New York’s Black Light District, she has run-ins with fighting demons, hostile werewolves and an opportunistic old flame. Sabina thought she’d take a bite out of the Big Apple – but it looks like it wants to bite back.
The clock is ticking for Sabina Kane. She has to save her sister from her mysterious captors. And in order to do that, she has to broker a deal between the mages and the vampires before all hell breaks loose.
But as much as Sabina is focused on surviving the present, the past won’t be ignored. Before she can save those she cares about, she’s got to save herself from the ghosts of her past. Because the past is haunting her. Literally.

- To ask a question: I’m trying something new this time around. To be added to the queue, simply click here and add your name. Typing in your question is up to you. This will allow me to time-stamp all questions, so for those with multiple questions, they won’t make the queue funky since I’ll have to figure out where in the line they would fall (using the PMing method).

- Each person will get to ask their question, but please wait until I call on you. When the next person is able to go, I will also indicate the next person in line so they can have their question ready as well.
- Follow-up questions do not need to be added to the queue. If you want to ask if something can be clarified or have a question along the same lines, please don’t hestitate to ask.

When we were first testing the room out, it seemed to work alright, but there were a couple of instances where people had trouble getting the page to come up after logging in. If you end up with a blank gray screen after login, try restarting your browser and clearing out your cache or any cookies. If you’re unsure how to do that, restart your computer. That will definitely do it. For anything else, send me an email at jackie AT literaryescapism DOT com and I’ll try to help figure out what is wrong. One caveat though, it is very hard to troubleshoot an issue without actually seeing it, so I can’t guarantee I’ll be able to help fix the problem. I do suggest that everyone tries to get into the chat room at least once (if you haven’t been in yet) before Thursday night if you don’t want to miss out on anything.
