Stir up a witchy tale. Ingredients: 



1 good witch who makes majorly stupid relationship choices
   A warlock with control issues
A vintage Mustang



Preparation:

In a well-ventilated garage, toss the witch into a large cauldron with a *Bunsen burner set on high.
Add a warlock with control issues, and a  vintage Mustang: red with black interior.
Stir vigorously.

Put-A-Lid-On-The-Cauldron!

Bring the mixture to a rapid boil.
(Don't go all wonky when the warlock's Mustang bursts into flames)
Let the mixture stew for, oh, 3 seconds (or until you hear loud furry-animal noises), and open the lid.
Wallah! You have conjured up a black cat!
*!* Remove the cat (don't freak out if the cat starts cussing at you. The witch is inside the cat).
*!* Now back away from the cauldron.

* A Bunsen burner, named after Robert Bunsen, is a common piece of laboratory equipment that produces a single open gas flame, which is used for heating, sterilization, and combustion.


*!* Said cat may be extremely angry so handle with care (I suggest you shove it into a pillowcase and tie up the opening)... just sayin'.

*!* The warlock is about to jump out. When he sees his beautiful Mustang burning he's going to be really, really angry. He will be less apt to turn you into a toad if you hand him the cat in the pillowcase--not your problem if he takes the trapped witch 200 miles from home and dumps her.

Villain name: I am a myth with no name, no sex, no flesh, no identity...unless I wear one of you.



Book Title: Purgatory



Tell us, what is your ultimate goal? I am a doppelganger, a rogue on the run, and a serial killer. No one can destroy me but the oldest of brethren, and they are about to try. My goal is to stay alive and continue to feed my hunger.



What do you see as your greatest obstacle? Another doppelganger, a mere fledgling, and her true love, Gaire, a wendigo.



Pick an historical figure and compare yourself to him or her– how are you alike and different? Jack-the-Ripper. He was allusive—so am I. But he had a name, one modus operandi. I do not. I am an Otherworld creature living Down Under in Purgatory during the day, but at night I roam above the sewers in your world. Jack was human, or so humanity believes, and if that assumption is true, he lived in your world.



Name a song that would be played in the soundtrack of your life?  "The Hitchhiker" 



Book Blurb: I spread out like a shadow on pavement under the feet of an unsuspecting woman working her corner in the seven-hundred block of South Orange Blossom Trail. Her name is Jane, and I will be wearing her by morning.

As she drags me along, I watch, listen, learn . . . and I think about Gaire. Although I knew something was different about him, I'd never, for a moment, expected Gaire to be a wendigo. Damn, talk about having a penchant for bad boys. That little proclivity might chalk my 'no killing humans' rule up to multiple charges of aiding and abetting before this insanity ends. And it will end, badly, if I don't get Gaire out of my doppelganger head. I know I should just forget him—I'm sure he's forgotten me—but Gaire is the first and only being who has made me feel real, alive, and, well, human. I'll be damned if I'm giving up on that.

As I stare up at Jane from the pavement, I'm thinking how perfect this chick would be. I could head back to Leesburg, she would stay in Orlando on her street corner, and our paths should never cross. Unless it's in a morgue somewhere—a street-walker's life is a hard one.

In her early twenties, Jane is blonde and tan, wearing a lewdly short skirt and a lacy bra barely covered by a leather vest. Black boots with four-inch heels caress the undersides of her knees as she struts toward a car pulling up to the curb a few yards down from the streetlight on her corner.

I cozy up closer as Jane leans toward the black sedan, filling the window with the contents of her lacy bra. I slither upward off the pavement, over the front tire, another moving shadow on a street accustomed to shadows.

Sonia yearns for sharp objects and blood. But now that she's rehabilitating herself as a "normal" mother and mathematics teacher, it's time to stop dreaming about slicing people's throats.

While being the wife of Melbourne's leading drug lord and simultaneously dating his best mate is not ideal, she's determined to make it work.

It does work. Until Mia, her lover's daughter, starts exchanging saliva with her son, Mick. They plan to commit a crime behind Sonia's back. It isn't long before she finds out and gets involved to protect them.

But is protecting the kids really Sonia's motive?

Linda Ulleseit was born and raised in Saratoga, California, and has taught elementary school in San Jose since 1996. She enjoys cooking, cross-stitching, reading, and spending time with her family. Her favorite subject is writing, and her students get a lot of practice scribbling stories and essays. Someday Linda hopes to see books written by former students alongside hers in bookstores.
Her first novel, ON A WING AND A DARE, was published in 2012. It is a Young Adult fantasy set in medieval Wales, complete with flying horses, a love triangle, and treachery. It’s sequel, IN THE WINDS OF DANGER, was released March, 2013. The focus of that book is the misty past of a groom and the murky future of a rider. The last book in the trilogy is UNDER A WILD AND DARKENING SKY, May 2014. It follows a brother and sister, new to High Meadow, who become involved in a plot to steal flying horses.

As a child, Linda always loved to write. She took her first creative writing course in seventh grade, accumulating a closet full of stories that she never showed anyone until 2007. At that time, she gave the first draft of a flying horse book to a teacher colleague to read. ON A WING AND A DARE began as a NaNoWriMo novel in 2009. It was revised with the help of reviewers on thenextbigwriter.com over the next two years. For NaNo 2011, Linda drafted the sequel, IN THE WINDS OF DANGER. NaNoWriMo 2012 brought the first draft of UNDER A WILD AND DARKENING SKY, and NaNoWriMo 2013 saw the completion of UNDER THE ALMOND TREES. This last is a historical fiction that follows three women who struggle for women’s rights in early California.

Linda has also written a novella titled WINGS OVER TREMEIRCHSON, released as an ebook in Fall 2013. It follows the story of Hoel and Neste, parents of a main character in ON A WING AND A DARE.

ON A WING AND A DARE  
 Flying horses…a love triangle…poison….Welcome to Tremeirchson.

In Tremeirchson, a barn leader’s children are expected to follow their parents into the sky, becoming riders of the magnificent winged horses that are the medieval Welsh village’s legacy. Neither Emma nor Davyd, however, want to follow that tradition.

Sixteen-year-old Emma risks losing her family by following her heart. Eager to take her place in the air, she longs to ride a forbidden winged colt born in barn of her father’s biggest rival. She also dreams of the rival’s sons, not sure which she truly loves. Bold and exciting, Evan will someday lead his father’s barn. Davyd is quieter, more dependable, with an ability to get things done. Her father disapproves of both boys and pushes her toward an ambitious newcomer. He also insists she ride the colt he’s picked for her.
Davyd, also sixteen, is plagued with a secret—he is afraid of heights. Refusing to become a rider means public humiliation, his parents’ disappointment, and lifelong ridicule from his brother, Evan. He reluctantly prepares to join his family aloft in the Aerial Games that provide the entire village with its livelihood and tries desperately to think of an alternative.

As Tremeirchson’s barns prepare for the Rider Ceremony, winged horses suddenly start dying. Shocked, the adults hesitate, mired in tradition and politics. Is it a disease or poison? Accidental or purposeful? Someone must discover the answer and act before all the winged horses in the world are gone forever.

On Amazon  and Smashwords



IN THE WINDS OF DANGER
 

Nineteen year old Nia is shocked when she is secretly offered the leadership of Third Barn. This new barn full of flying horses will need someone confident, experienced, and innovative, so why are both warring factions pursuing an untried girl? Suspicious that both sides want a puppet instead of a leader, Nia races to discover their secrets before making the biggest decision of her life.

Some of those secrets are unknowingly buried in the disconnected memories of a young groom named Owain. Terror and guilt haunt Owain’s dreams – and then a face from his nightmare arrives in High Meadow. Owain looks for answers in his past and uncovers a dangerous plot that could doom High Meadow's future. How can he foil the plot and save his people as well as the winged horses?


UNDER A WILD AND DARKENING SKY


Ralf knows he must take over his father’s bakery, but is it wrong to want some adventure before he does? New to High Meadow, he is befriended by the beautiful and dangerous Branwen, who has her own goal—to entice Ralf to help her steal a winged horse and return it to Tremeirchson.



Meanwhile, Ralf’s sister, Alyna, dives into barn life. Becoming a groom to a winged foal is a lot of responsibility to the horse, to the barn, and to her father, who idolizes the wrong barn leader. Politics, greed, and revenge swirl around the teenaged siblings as they struggle to be true to their family and their future.
 

 WINGS OVER TREMEIRCHSON (a flying horse novella)


Eighteen year old Neste rides a winged horse in Tremeirchson's Aerial Games and she is betrothed to the barn leader's son, Hoel. Life would be wonderful if Hoel wasn't so unpleasant to the other riders. Adam, on the other hand, is handsome and nice but a terrible rider. Together, Hoel and Adam are the perfect man. Obviously she can't have both of them. When Neste's winged horse is involved in a terrible accident, her life changes and she must make different choices about her future. Can she go against her father's dying wish that she marry Hoel? Can she forgive Adam? Can she make a life away from the barn and the winged horses she loves?

UNDER THE ALMOND TREES


Under the Almond Trees is the story of my family – three ordinary women in California who lived extraordinary lives. It started with a falling tree branch that killed Ellen VanValkenburgh’s husband in 1862, forcing her to assume leadership of his paper mill, something women weren’t allowed to do. Women weren’t allowed to vote yet, either. Ellen decided that had to change, and became a suffragette. In 1901, Emily Williams , Ellen’s daughter-in-law, became an architect – very much against her family’s wishes. No one would hire a woman, but Emily would not be deterred. She and her life partner Lillian set out to build homes themselves. By the 1930’s women enjoyed more freedom, including the vote. Even so, Ellen’s granddaughter Eva VanValkenburgh chose a traditional life of marriage and children, even closing her photography business at her husband’s insistence. When he later refused to pay for their daughter’s college education, Eva followed the example of her Aunt Emily and reopened her photography business. I am proud to call these women family and honored to share their story.

Fun Facts about Roses - A Guest Post by Kimberly Loth
My main character loves roses. She’s a bit obsessed, to be honest. I learned a lot about roses as I was researching things for the book. Here are some cool things I never knew about roses.
  1. The American Rose Association states that there are 30 different compounds of smells in roses. They include: apple, clover, lemon, violet, green tea leaves, cloves, raspberry, bay, spice, musk, parsley, wine, lily of the valley, linseed oil, fern, moss, hyacinth, orange, anise, honey, marigold, banana, apricot, quince, peppers, melon, and myrrh.
  2. There are over 1500 species of roses.
  3. You can make tea from rose petals.
  4. There is rose flavored ice cream. I tasted it. It actually tastes just like you think a rose would taste. Not good.
  5. A rose fossil was found in Colorado. It was over 35 million years old.
  6. There is no such thing as a black rose.
  7. Roses are grown in almost every country of the world.
  8. The world’s oldest living rose is 1000 years old. It is found on a wall at the Cathedral of Hildesheim in Germany
  9. The worlds largest rosebush in is Tombstone, Arizona. It’s trunk is over 6 feet in diameter. I saw it this summer and it was enormous.
  10. June is National Rose month.
Kissed (The Thorn Chronicles)
by Kimberly Loth
Naomi is rescued from her impending nuptials by the mysterious Kai who sends her off to Vegas with a sweet kiss and a promise of only a short time apart. But there Naomi meets Puck, a boy with wine colored hair and kisses that rival Kai’s. Soon Naomi is swept into a glamorous world where kisses hold power and not is all is at it first appears. Soon she must choose, freedom but heartache or love and captivity. Buy the book: http://amzn.to/1oeQAPf Only 99 cents About the Author Kimberly Loth can’t decide where she wants to settle down. She’s lived in Michigan, Illinois, Missouri, Utah, California, Oregon, and South Carolina. She finally decided to make the leap and leave the U.S. behind for a few years. Currently, she lives in Cairo, Egypt with her husband and two kids. She is a high school math teacher by day (please don’t hold that against her) and YA author by night. She loves romantic movies, chocolate, roses, and crazy adventures. Kissed is her first novel.

May 5th 2014 - Blog Hopping with Audra Middleton on Audra Writes

My Writing Process

I was asked by Audra to participate by answering these four questions:

    1. What am I working on?  
Well, I have three projects going on right now.Forget Me, my first novella in the Purgatory series, a a paranormal romance geared for New Adults.

Book 2 in my YA series, Dead Girls Never Shut Up.

And for all ages, Coffin Fit, book 4 in my Grateful Undead series.



    2. How does my work differ from others in its genre? 
My books are very character driven, dialogue and action heavy, and full of humor, so if you like narration driven fantasy, these are not for you. LOLOL

    3. Why do I write what I do? 
Because I have no choice. I've been mentally hijacked by these terribly amusing, although often stubborn and controlling characters living in my head. And they just won't go home!

    4. How does my writing process work? 
I go to bed, my characters and I brainstorm while I sleep. I wake and write their stories. Oh, and I listen to 80's rock and drink lots of coffee while I write.

 


    I've always been weird, even as a child. I might've been influenced by all those fairies and trolls living around Grandma's house. Today it probably has something to do with five crazy vamp-women, the fanged tyke, fairy, troll, werewolf, demon, ghosts, doppelgangers, and several sexy immortals living in my head.

 In reality I live with my husband and my three King Charles Spaniels on 50 acres of woods, fields, and streams in upper Michigan; hunt deer with my Ruger or crossbow, paint watercolors, sculpture stained glass, and chase fairies with my dogs.

Okay, so hop on over to DelSheree's Blog on MAY 12th, and find what she's working on (I personally hope it's book #3 in her Wicked series) and who she's tagged next: http://theediblebookshelf.blogspot.com/


 
DelSheree Gladden was one of those shy, quiet kids who spent more time reading than talking. Literally. She didn’t speak a single word for the first three months of preschool, but she had already taught herself to read. Her fascination with reading led to many hours spent in the library and bookstores, and eventually to writing. She wrote her first novel when she was sixteen years old, but spent ten years rewriting and perfecting it before having it published.


Native to New Mexico, DelSheree and her husband spent several years in Colorado for college and work before moving back home to be near family again. Their two children love having their seventeen cousins close by. When not writing, you can find DelSheree reading, painting, sewing and trying not to get bitten by small children in her work as a dental hygienist.


DelSheree has several bestselling young adult urban fantasy series, and her first contemporary romance, Date Shark, will be released with Limitless Publishing in 2014.

with and author interview and book blurbs
 







 In book one,THEY'RE SO VEIN, the women in the Stech family went from dentures to fangs, Depends to thongs, Dr. Scholl's® to stilettos, and bumbled their way into an undead lifetime of Critter Control when one of them inadvertently turned a raccoon into a vampoon.







GATOR BAITIN' (book 2) begins as the team is dispatched to destroy a vamp-gator wreaking havoc at Gatorland in Orlando, only to get sidetracked by a serial killer investigation, a vamp-bull at a rodeo in Kissimmee, and a colorful demon named Rafael. Between bronco busting, dragon riding, Jesus-freak chasing, gator hunting, demon summoning and dead bodies popping up everywhere, Susan's finding it hard to fit in a little romp time.







In BLOOD, SWEAT, AND DEMON TEARS (book 3) Susan's sister is in one hell of a mess (literally); confined to servitude with the demon, Rafael.When Rafael gifts JoAnn with an Earth-to-Abyss cellphone so she can communicate with her sister, Susan soon finds out that JoAnn has gone from servitude to concubine, and no longer wishes to come home. Only problem is that JoAnn really loves her new cell phone and the frequent calls--time really moves like Hell in the Abyss--are driving Marcus and Susan batty! In their attempt to retrieve JoAnn, THE GRATEFUL UNDEAD team ultimately finds themselves knee-deep in vamp critters, demons, rogues, and a host of new and colorful characters, when the mission takes them from their home in Florida to the streets of New Orleans.




 ABOUT THE AUTHOR



One's real life is so often the life that one does not lead~~Oscar Wilde
I've always been weird, even as a child—might've been influenced by all those fairies and trolls living in and around the streams behind Grandma's house. Today I live with my husband and three King Charles Spaniels on 50 acres of woods, fields, and streams in upper Michigan.

 

ABOUT THE SERIES

What was your inspiration for "The Grateful Undead?" I started to have this crazy dream every night: Sexy vamp guy waltzes through the French doors of my bedroom balcony, and after an erotically charged interlude (see chapter twenty-eight in book one, They're so Vein), he fangs me, which just happens to clock me back about 30 years. That's when the crazy-as-hell, non-estrogen producing women in my family burst into my dream asking for a piece of the action. I laughed myself awake and then got out a pad and a pen. After I cut the girls loose in my world there was no dragging them back out again! My dreams became filled with fanged fiascoes and they mentally pushed me toward the computer every morning, fighting for top billing.

Can you describe your main character, Susan, and how her personality leads her into trouble? Susan has curly red hair, green eyes, and dresses in grubby jeans or cargo shorts, t-shirts and her Doc Martins, which drives her bible thumping vampire-ish sister, nuts. But then again, JoAnn irons her underwear. Am I ashamed of Susan? Nah, I'm very proud of her crude, sarcastic wit. I take full credit for each and every one of her unseemly qualities—taught her everything she knows.

The Stechs have an interesting family dynamic. Can you tell us a little about how they interact?They interact like the women in my real family. The characters in my book are spontaneous, edgy, and verbally animated; nothing is sacred, no holds are barred.

Your book is filled with comedy. Do you plan for funny moments, or do they come naturally? I can never plan anything that spews from my character's mouths, or their actions and reactions to different situations. I stick them in a situation and they write the outcome. I just type and laugh along with them until we get there.

Can you tell us a little about the differences between the main Vampire men in this book?  
Marcus is patient, sexy, loveable, wise, and brainlessly in love with Susan. Although she is attracted to him, Susan fights that attraction with every forward step they take. Marcus is the head of the council and the founder of BAMVC. He starts out a little proper in book one, a bit more down to earth in book two, and amusingly part of Susan's life by book three.

Dorius—the bastard—is in charge of the rogue hunters at BAMVC and is everything the women hate in a man; controlling, arrogant, borderline narcissistic. It's always about appearances and maintaining the stature expected of immortal beings that are highest on the food chain.

Christopher plays a key role in all three books and adds a lot of humor to the pages, especially in book two and three where he becomes a permeate fixture in the Stech household. He is a one-hundred-and-five year old immortal in the body of a six year old with curly blond hair, blue eyes and a cherub face. He's intelligent, complex, a prankster, and vindictive when it comes to Dorius. Christopher's character surprises me constantly as I write, always challenging, always amusing. However, most of the time Susan's character would like to hold Christopher's head in the toilet until the bubbles stop.

Do you have any interesting rituals or habits when you write? I have to listen to 70's-80's rock while writing, the louder the better, and I have to start each chapter with a line from a song. I do remove them before publishing, though. 

Can you tell us about the next book in this series? COFFIN FIT is vanity reaching around and biting the Stech women in the ass. JoAnn's demon ex puts a spell on the girls. They start aging and reverting to the cloak and dagger vamps of old times. Holy water, crosses and sunlight fry their rapidly sagging asses, and the biggest travesty is they can't see their images! Oh, and one of JoAnn's little vamp critters finds its way to Italy. Is Dorius pissed? You bet. The ending takes place in Purgatory, Down Under with characters from another one of my books.

Author interview today - book review tomorrow
 
The Edible Bookshelf with DelSheree Gladden

Today I'm welcoming Susan Stec to the blog to talk about her new YA novel, "The Other F Word." 

1. What was your inspiration for this book?
My enchantment with fae and their mystical world. I find it interesting how they are portrayed in different countries, and illustrations in beautiful books by authors like Judy Allen, Brian Froud and Alan Lee only peak my imagination—encourage creativity. Usually they are portrayed mischievous and menacing—sometimes wicked-scary and ugly. I wanted to pen these wonderful creatures' ways teens could relate; yet open a whole new word of what ifs.

Waken (The Woods of Everod, #1)
by Angela Fristoe
Expected Release: January 2014

Moving to her parents’ hometown of Everod is the last thing Janie Lyndon wants. After years of abuse and eventual abandonment, she’d rather forget they ever existed. Haunted by nightmares of her mother killing her, Janie just wants to be normal.

The gorgeous Davin Andersen is out of her league, but for some reason he seems to actually like her. The emotions he draws from her are almost enough to make her ignore all of the weird things he says. Almost enough to ignore the way the entire town seems ready to pounce on her as if she were fresh meat.

Almost, though, isn’t enough when Janie finally discovers what the town is hiding. The town of Everod has been waiting for Janie and if she hopes to survive, she’ll need to confront the truth of who and what she really is.

About the Author
Born in Northern Canada, Angela grew up on the Canadian prairies amid dreams of becoming the next Dian Fossey or a world famous flight attendant. Those, however, were never meant to be.
