Discussion or Argument?

Once again, trouble in the touring world and the host has not posted–

KendÍka – Why must we always talk about this blog tour? Didn’t you put a schedule on the side bar? I see it, it’s right there.

annamaria – Not everyone looks at it. Are you telling me that when White Swans comes out you don’t want me to talk and advertise the tour stops?

KendÍka – That’s different.

annamaria – How?

KendÍka – That will be my book, my story, my novel, and the world needs to know about it because that’s the only way they’ll understand that aliens and magic exists in our universe.

annamaria – Incantation Paradox and Dolores do a good job telling the world that even humans have magic, not very many, but they do.

KendÍka – It’s still not the same. Dolores doesn’t have to deal with aliens that give out punishments that disfigure.

annamaria – That is true, but she has to deal with a murderer who has magic.

KendÍka – I still believe it’s not a good idea to keep advertising the tour.

annamaria – We can argue about it all you want, but it’s my website and I dictate what gets printed.

KendÍka – Fine! I’m outta here. See ya.

annamaria – Now that a peace is restored I’d like to share the guest post with you. I know it’s short, but for some it works just fine.

The Guest Post

Many critics say that everything has already been written. Can the human imagination be that small? Anyway, with this in mind, I decided to take an old theme and make it my own, adding a twist of deception, murder and intrigue into the mix. This is not Freaky Friday because evil lurks at every corner waiting to satisfy the inner selfishness of one of the characters.

Can magic be blamed for everything that happens?

From the point of view of the main character, Dolores, I never knew what Eric was thinking and why he did the things he did. I knew he was a bad person, I just didn’t understand how evil he was until I decided to rewrite the novel in third person to get inside his head.

I was shocked to find so much evil in one human being, but I must be honest, I thoroughly enjoyed writing his character. The third person also gave me the opportunity to bring forth Jason’s goodwill and feelings toward Dolores. To make the bit of romance between them work, I had to use some special event that happens only when they step into the veil of magic.

Yes, it is an overly done theme, but my version is very different and if you enjoy murder, deception and intrigue with a twist of magic, this urban fantasy might be for you.

I had a lot of fun writing the novel, and now I hope you will enjoy reading it.


Book Blurb:



Magic is an illusion. It doesn’t really exist. Or does it?

A horrible car accident destroys Dolores Reynard’s life. But instead of waking up in a hospital bed, she awakens in a teenager’s body. Soon, she discovers she is at the heart of the murderous mystery surrounding the death of Mona, the young girl whose body she occupies. Caught between an evil greater than she ever imagined and a wizard who heals her tattered heart, she is forced to play a dangerous game of intrigue in the hopes of finding a way to return to her previous life.

Will magic be her ally, or will it lead to her demise once and for all.
