RED CARPET DAY
MERCURY IN RETRO LOVE
A story about crushes, conflicts and astrological confusion.
Finally, after years of making love predictions for her friends, fifteen-year-old astrologer, Emma Seigel, sees a boyfriend in her future. But there’s one big problem. Mercury is heading for Retrograde in four weeks, and she sure knows what that means. It’s like an astrological PMS. A disastrous time to start a new relationship.
Using her school newspaper column, Emmastrology, she sets a plan in motion and within a week lands hottie Evan Randolph as her boyfriend. She’s a Taurus. He’s a Capricorn. Both earth signs. What could be more perfect? But is he as perfect as her prediction claims him to be? The stars are telling her it’s right. But her heart says it’s all wrong.
Everyday her feelings are growing stronger for someone else, a Leo, so totally not the sign for her. And to make matters even worse, Emma’s actions, caused by her unflinching belief in astrology, get her in trouble with her best friends in the whole world.
Time is running out. Can Emma straighten up this mess she’s in before Mercury goes Retrograde again?
A Young Adult Novel
I write fiction and non-fiction for adults and children. I am both serious and fantastical.
As a little girl I would read newspaper articles out loud to my family and friends, incorporating them into the stories. By the time I was in junior high, I was creating plots and characters of my own. And I have been a prolific writer ever since, writing everything from poetry to educational videos.
I have written several books for Parachute Press, the book packager for the Goosebumps and Fear Street series. I have been also a frequent contributor to the Los Angeles Times Kids’ Reading Room Page. My stories for adults have appeared in True Confessions, Woman’s World, Chicken Soup for the Soul books, and The Book Breeze.
I also write a weekly column for the popular website In The Powder Room and blog for The Huffington Post.

Win free books for tots and teens!
December 2012 – From the 1st to 7th December 2012 people can enter this awesome give-away and be in with a chance of winning a selection of fantastic children’s titles. The contest is international and all people have to do to enter is click through the rafflecopter. The more they click, the more entry votes they have and the better their chances of winning.
Authors Jo Linsdell, Kate Mueller, Ngaire Elder, Virginia Jennings, Janie Emaus and VS Grenier have come together to offer some pre-Christmas fun and give readers the chance of winning a copy of their books. An excellent prize that can be downloaded directly to your kindle device. No waiting for the postman to deliver!
Reading is an important skill for children to learn and electronic reading devices like kindles are opening up the possibilities of getting children to read more. Ideal for those times when you need to entertain them in waiting rooms or during long journeys but also great for reading at home. This super prize will keep the younger members of the family entertained either independently or as a group activity.
Jo Linsdell, the organizer of the give-way, had this to say “I was trying to think up ways I could promote my book in the lead up to the holidays and give a little something back to all the people that support my work. I figured it would be more fun to include other authors in the children’s genre and do it as a group project than to go it alone and so asked some of my colleagues if they wanted to join me. The result is a fabulous prize of titles suitable for tots to teens”.
The winner of the give-away will receive a copy of each of the titles giving them an instant library of children’s books for their kindle… and just in time for the holidays.
The give-away, with rafflecopter widget will be online at various blogs including http://jolinsdell.blogspot.com from 1st -7th December. For more details please contact Jo Linsdell via email at webmaster@JoLinsdell.com
