New website

Hi everyone,

I've been asked whether I have a website for ages now so I've sort of tried my hands at web design :-) and this is it:

http://www.jaydescott.com

It's still a bit basic but I think the layout works well for news and giveaways, and there's even a subscribe option for everyone who's interested in receiving updates.

I hope you like it *blush*

Shadow Blood cover reveal



Only a few months ago, Amber Reed would have called herself an ordinary girl in an ordinary world…until she moves to Scotland and is pushed into a world she never knew existed by the sexy and daring McAllister brothers, unable to withstand its perils.

Aidan McAllister, the irresistible leader of the Morganefaire brethren, has what he's always wanted: the girl of his dreams. His love for Amber is getting stronger, but for all his wants and needs, there’s a price to pay.

As a mystery draws them deeper into the heart of an intricate organization ruled by shifting allegiances, Amber realizes she’ll have to choose between her one true love and doing the one thing she swore she’d never do: break the rules by taking someone’s life.

Shadow Blood is the continuation of Forever And Beyond (Ancient Legends) by Jayde Scott.  Bonus included: Rebecca's Rising 


Shadow Blood (Ancient Legends Book 6) release Oct. 2012

Bewitched cover reveal and fun giveaway: Enter to win a print copy


To celebrate the imminent launch of Bewitched, the fourth book of the Ancient Legends series and the sequel to A Job From Hell, I'm thrilled to announce a giveaway. Basically, I'm giving away one print copy before the official release date, which is March 3rd, 2012. Anyone in the world can enter and all entries must be received before March 2nd, 2012. There are various ways to earn an entry. The more you do, the more entries you get, meaning the more chances you'll have to win.


Here's how it works:

Simply email me your name and postal address to enter. Leave a review on Amazon or Barnes & Noble for any of my books and email me a link to it. Each review will count as one additional entry. For example, if you leave two reviews, you'll get two additional entries and so forth.


Earning additional entries:

Post a link to any one of my books on Facebook. That's an additional entry per post.


An example:

If leave two reviews on Amazon and post one link on Facebook...that's three entries, so you're three times more likely to win.


Important:

The winner will be drawn on March 2nd via random.org and will be notified the same day. Don't forget to send me an email to jayden (dot) scott (at) live (dot) com or send me a Facebook message with the links to your review(s) and any additional entries. Also, don't forget to include your name and shipping address so I know where to send the book to in case you win. The name of the winner will be published on this blog as well as on Facebook.

Good luck to everyone who enters!

Meet the artist


As you know the print book art for Voodoo Kiss was designed by the amazingly talented Sarah Tee. Today I'd like to share a few details about Sarah:

- She's only 18!!!
- Her father introduced her to Photoshop 3 years ago. She basically opened it and just started to play around with all the effects, and instantly fell in love with the software.
- She taught herself everything there is to know about digital manipulation
- She draws most of her inspiration from her own emotions. She suffered from severe depression and her art was an outlet. Her pain and sadness were inspiration for many of her earlier work when she was proud to create something beautiful out of something that was killing her. Even after she started to get better, she still uses those moments to help create some of her work today. Sometimes the images themselves inspire her to create something out of them.
- In the future, she hopes to get into media work, or any other career in which she can make use of her Photoshop skills
- If you're looking for coverart, she can be hired any time. There is an introductory offer if you mention this blog post.

I believe Sarah will be a huge artist one day. To have a look at her portfolio or if you want to contact her, go to her website:

Valentine’s Day choosing gifts…love or dread

Whether we want it or not, Feb. 14th is around the corner. In about a week, the much loved (or much hated) day to celebrate the spirit of love is bound to turn a few of us into obsessive lunatics, sweating at the mere thought of what to get the people we love. You might be in a committed relationship or just dating; either way there’s no way around giving a gift to someone you really care about. But constitutes as a good gift?
On one hand, you don’t want to insult your love interest with a frugal but thoughtful present. On the other hand, a gift purchased from a department store might be perceived as a.) impersonal, or b.) inappropriate or missing your love interest’s taste.

To give an example of an inappropriate gift, last year one of my best friends (let’s call him Sam-Who-Didn’t-Know-Any-Better) thought he’d take the girl of his dreams out to dinner. Dinner sounds great, right? You get to avoid cooking and have others do the washing up for you. But there’s a lot that speaks against restaurants if you don’t know your love interest well enough. In fact, there’s so much speaking against it you can probably hear the alarm bells ringing from across the street.
So, Sam-Who-Didn’t-Know-Any-Better booked a nice Chinese restaurant without knowing his love interest was a vegan. After a half hour of trying to find something on the menu that contained no milk, eggs, cheese, meat, you get the drift, they decided on Monks’ Vegetables. I’ve heard it tasted awesome. About ten minutes into desert Sam-Who-Didn’t-Know-Any-Better’s lover interest had a nasty reaction to cornstarch and an ambulance had to be called. Unfortunately, she never returned his calls.
This year, Sam-Who-Didn’t-Know-Any-Better will get his new love interest roses, a box of pralines and a card.

IMO, gift giving is a bit tricky. You need to consider where you stand with your date and incorporate your knowledge about them into your decision. Flowers, chocolates, a poem, and cards are safe bets. Something homemade, like a chocolate cake, is also a good choice. I’d definitely stay away from gift cards, jewelry (and in particular rings, unless you’re a couple and about to propose), and clothes (and by that I’m talking about what you’re wearing underneath, unless you know they won’t find it creepy and/or inappropriate.)
But whatever gift you choose, remember, it’s the thought that counts. If you give it away with a smile on your face, it’s bound to make someone’s day, or at least make them laugh. And isn’t feeling happy and maybe even a bit silly what love’s all about?

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!

Free ebook today only: Born to Spy

I'm thrilled to announce that my humorous teen novel, Born to Spy, is free on Amazon today only so if you want a free copy, now's the time. Enjoy...


When thirteen-year-old Thom's father goes missing, Thom knows something's up so he breaks into the basement only to find a spy center full of spy equipment.
With the help of his friend, Danny, and Danny's fifteen-year-old sister, Hilly, the three of them set out to discover what happened to Thom's father, but their investigation brings them to the attention of a powerful group of art thieves who would do anything to protect their identities.

Soon they realize their own life's at stake and Hilly's drama queen antics and focus on spending every penny on the royal spy credit card isn't aiding the mission one bit. Thom will have to rely on his wits and friends if he's to survive and solve the mystery.
