Hi! I'm new. I guess that's pretty obvious. My name is Jalisa, but I go by Lisa for short, since my full name is typically a mouthful. I've been on forums before, most recently Absolute Write. I still browse every now and then. I'm graduating from college next month with a Bachelor's in Middle Level Education, emphasis in Language Arts and Science. I've written a book and am currently agented in Gina Panettieri at Talcott Notch Literary Services and we're working on finding it (my novel) a home. It's an Urban Fantasy about a werewolf who, well, kicks butt for a her job. I've started a blog recently and have reviewed a couple of books and done a couple of interviews and hope to do a few more! As far as writing, of late I've been trying to work on my short story skills. I've gotten a lot of positive feedback but no acceptances for publication yet. So, I'm hoping that maybe I can work on that here. I'm really open to constructive criticism and am happy to give the same!
