I have a treat for you this morning to start off your Monday morning: Please welcome National Bestselling Author Linda Wisdom!
Linda's here to tell us a bit about her latest book, the first in a new series that spun off from her fabulous witch series.
Take it away Linda!
Thank you, Jana, for having me at Killer Fiction today!
I’m Linda and I have witches in my house. Along with vampires, wizards, shapeshifters, fangy bunny slippers, gargoyles, bejeweled black widow spiders stealing my computer to find the perfect spell to keep her lovers alive, and ferrets constantly stealing my coffee.
What can I say? Life isn’t boring here. The good thing is they’re not taking up room in the house, just my imagination. Although there’s many times my bunny slippers aren’t where I left them and my chocolate stash has visibly decreased.
I love the witches I write about since they’re characters I wouldn’t mind spending time with. It’s been said the author can be found in his/her characters and I’d agree. Mine definitely have some of my personality sewn into their psyches. Although they have a lot more power than I do.
Demons are a Girl’s Best Friend is the beginning of a new series, yet still a part of the Hex series since I’m continuing with the witches from the first four books.
When my editor read the manuscript, she loved Declan, the half fire demon so much she said they were changing the title and cover and calling it a new series with demons thrown into the mix.
Maggie is my kickass witch. She heads up a team for the Hellion Guard, which protects all supes. Think SWAT but with fangs, claws, and super duper magickal powers. She’s going through a bit of mommy envy because a friend is pregnant, but she knows that won’t happen with her. And she’s been thrown together with Declan, who runs an underground club who’s so sexy he makes her hormones stand up and do the happy dance. But she doesn’t have time for relationships either. Declan has different ideas about that and they even end up first ‘dating’ via their dreams.
Plus they’re pulled into finding the source for an ancient Mayan curse meant to bring the demons back into power since Declan’s dad has something to do with it. And Maggie gets her wish for mommy hood. The only trouble is, her charge is a fifteen-year-old mouthy teenage girl who’s targeted as the blood sacrifice for the ritual.
What can I say? I never make it easy for my characters. I admit writing Courtney, the teenager, was a total blast. Especially since Maggie had to ensure Courtney wouldn’t talk magick where she should so a spell was thrown on her that if she tried to use a magick term another word came out. Such as hex might come out as plumber. Is there nothing more fun than frustrating a teenage girl?
The book was fun to write with not just the above but over-caffeinated ferrets who work as messengers, an empath Fae who exudes the calming scent of lavender and Seers who dress and act more like Flower Children.
And then there’s that nasty blood sacrifice.
Will Maggie save Courtney from a gruesome death meant to bring the Destroyer back to this world? Will Maggie and Declan decide to get it on in the real world? Will Elle, Maggie’s diamond-encrusted black widow spider find that perfect hex to keep her lovers alive?
You’ll have to read Demons Are A Girl’s Best Friend to find out.
Do you think you’d date in the dream world?
