Whoseywhatsit Thursday: NEW OASIS SISTER

Yes, we call each other sisters. Heck, I talk to/email/tweet/FB my Oasis sisters more than I do my own. I like the theory that we can choose our own family, and I'm lucky to have these girls in mine.

Since the Oasis' first post, we've had a regular visitor to this blog, to our personal blogs, and an all around cheerleader and helper-outer. (It IS a word. Hush up, it is too! :-P ) She's beta read for a few of us, too. When it comes to the Oasis for YA, and us Sisters, the first person that comes to mind as being in our extended online family, its J.L. Spelbring. 

So, this Fall, we're bringing her into the Oasis family!!

For those of you who don't know her, J.L. Spelbring has a very active blog. She has a spring 2013 release with Spencer Hill Press, too. According to her official bio, J.L. lives in Texas, where she wanders out in the middle of the night to look at the big and bright stars. Besides knocking imaginary bad guys in the head with a keyboard, she enjoys being swept away between the pages of a book, running amuck inside in her own head, pretending she is into running, and hanging out with her kids, who are way too cool for her. Her novel, Perfection, will be released in May, 2013
What about Perfection? Well, here's the blurb:

The personification of Aryan purity, Ellyssa's spent her whole life under her creator's strict training and guidance; her purpose is to eradicate inferior beings. She was genetically engineered to be the perfect soldier: strong, intelligent, unemotional, and telepathic.

Only Ellyssa isn't perfect.

Ellyssa feels emotions--a fact she's spent her life concealing. Until she encounters the epitome of inferiority: a dark-haired boy raised among renegades hiding since the Nazis won the war a century ago. He speaks to her telepathically, pushing thoughts into her mind, despite the impossibility of such a substandard person having psychic abilities.

But he does.

His unspoken words and visions of a place she's never visited make Ellyssa question her creator. Confused and afraid her secret will be discovered, Ellyssa runs away, embarking on a journey where she discovers there is more to her than perfection.

You can find J.L. here at the Oasis, on Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, and her SHP author page. And you can find out more about her upcoming dystopian release on Perfection's page on Goodreads.

Please give Judy a big welcome to the Oasis for YA family!


  1. YAY!!

    I'm very excited to be part of the family. And very honored to take an active part of the Oasis blog

    I've had the pleasure of interviewing each one of the girls on my blog, and the awesome pleasure of running a contest with them and even a few of their agents.

    I can't wait to get started.
