Here is a compilation of the questions that I get asked most frequently. If you have a question that I haven't answered or you need more in depth of an answer, you can comment on the blog or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I do respond. xoxo
Do you have an agent?
Nope, not yet. I self-publish most of my books. The Luminescence Trilogy is currently under contract with Nevermore Press, but I am always actively searching for an agent.
What are some ways I can contact you?
Address: J.L. Weil
2170 Point Blvd. #600

What inspired you to started writing?
Boredom? Seriously just kidding, no really I am. I have had my nose stuck in a book since I could read, which includes me pulling all-nighters and my kids eating cereal for dinner. That's what got me started. I wanted to be able to write a story that sucks the reader right in and all concept of time is gone. 'Cuz I love that excited feeling, where you just can't wait to get to the end.
Who are your favorite authors?
Umm... this might take awhile. I love so many authors, so I'll just name a few off the top of my head. Nora Roberts is my absolute favorite. I also really enjoy Richelle Mead, Johanna Lindsey, Jude Deveraux, P.C. Cast, Alyson Noel, Stephenie Meyers, J.K. Rowling, Christopher Pike, Sandra Brown, Judith McNaught, Kristin Cashore, Melissa Marr, Cassandra Clare, Suzanne Collins, Patricia Briggs, Charlaine Harris, Maggie Stiefvater and so many more.
I write YA because I love to read it! Friend me on http://www.goodreads.com/JLWeil for more of what I read and am reading.
Who designs your uber cool book covers?
The Divisa covers were designed by Kelly Walker, who is amazing. All other covers have been designed by moi. If I had more free time, I would love to dabble more in cover design. It is so much fun!
Where can I buy your books?
My books are available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, Createspace, Lulu, and the iBookstore. You should find links all over my blog.
Why can't I buy your books in stores?
That's the stinky part, because I self-publish them. They aren't available anywhere but online. It's a dream to be able to put them on the shelves. But you can get paperbacks of my books at https://www.createspace.com/3857175.
What are your favorite TV shows?
I'm a sucker for anything teen. My favorite shows currently are Teen Mom, Teen Wolf, (if it has teen in the title, I'm totally DVR'ing it) True Blood, Games of Throne, Pretty Little Liars, Vampire Diaires, The Secret Circle (update I heard this was cancelled, sniff sniff), Gossip Girl, Hart of Dixie, Nikita, Tosh.0, and 16 & Preggers. Thank goodness for my DVR. My husband says I am a sixteen year old in a 30 something's body - totally true.
Do you do interviews?

I'm a publisher and I think your book rocks, who do I contact?

What is the next book coming out?
