Linda Wisdom Talks To Us

50waystohex72.jpgIf Linda Wisdom is half as fun as her book is, then her guestblog today is going to be plenty of fun!

How do you brew up a hexy book?

You start with a full measure of sexy witch

Add essence of a sexy vampire

A pinch of a cranky 1950s era ghost

Stir in zest of magickal bunny slippers to add that extra boost along with a hint of elf, ghoul and even a bare bit of were and you have an energetic brew filled with a witch we’d all want to hang out with.

As long as she doesn’t conjure up some witchflame, that is!

That’s exactly what I did including the witchflame.

A snarky witch popped up in my head and introduced herself as Jasmine “Jazz” Tremaine and did she have a story for me, which is appropriately titled 50 Ways to Hex Your Lover. And the meaning of the book title is even explained in the book.

She’s a witch with an addiction to cotton candy and funnel cakes, loves to shop and pays her bills, hey, even witches have Visa and MasterCard, by working as a curse eliminator and a driver for All Creatures Car Service. Life should be good for her, but her ex has shown up. And said ex is one hot guy, been off and on in her life for the past 600 years. Wait a minute did I say 600 years? Yep. Easy to do when you’re a vampire. And Nick’s a vampire to be reckoned with. As a former member of vampire law enforcement, which doesn’t happen to have an appeal process, and now working as a private detective for the supernatural community, Nick’s trying to now bring down a serial killer of vampires. A creature from his and Jazz’s past and someone Jazz doesn’t care to confront again because that would mean confronting a horror she’d kept buried for 70 years.

Writing this book was sheer joy for me. I had characters that are downright fun and so surprising even I wasn’t sure what would happen next. Along with being so believable I check my bunny slippers every so often to make sure they’re not trying to take off with the dog.

I hope those of you who read the book will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it. And I hope that reading it will have you believing in the unbelievable. Because, for me, that’s the most fun. The idea pretty much anything could be out there.

50 Ways to Hex Your Lover is out in the bookstores now and Hex Appeal, the next book in the series, will be out this fall.

There will be prizes. Who would you have Fluff and Puff, the magickal, be-fanged bunny slippers, bite?

    This sounds great! Mmm, who would I have Fluff and Puff bite? Not sure that’s something I want in writing! LOL 😀 Although if they have magical properties that could anesthetize my mortgage lender and make him/her stamp a big ol’ YES on my papers, I’d go for that.

    How about if they ate all the mortgage papers at the lenders’ office? That way no paperwork, no proof you owe one? They’re always hungry slippers.

    they can bite on my homework, but it does not taste good..haha : )

    OMG! This book looks like so much. I cannot wait to get my hands on a copy. I would love for Fluff & Puff to bite my soon-to-be ex-husband. He’s making life so difficult for me right now (as if it wasn’t difficult enough living with him).

    Oops…was supposed to say that this book looks like so much fun – LOL!

    Hmm, this is such a hard decision, so many people and things to choose from. =D I wonder if Fluff and Puff would enjoy the phones of these telemarketers that call at 8am every morning when I’m sleeping. They are greatly disliked. lol

    Princessb, right now, I totally agree because I’ve not been allowed out to play because of homework!

  8. March 6, 2008 at 2:54 am

    Hm, homework, soon to be exes, telemarketers. Oh yes on all!

    Although with telemarketers I think I’d rather call them up at odd hours and see how they like it.

    And knowing Fluff and Puff they would find some inventive ways to do it too.

    I also just got word that Sourcebooks wants two more witch books! So more coming next year.

    Just remember one thing about hexes. They can bounce back to you, so make sure to word it very carefully. :>

    Congrats on the two more books thing, Linda! Woohoo 😀

    As for my mortgage – I actually want them to approve my mortgage so I can get the place I want. So no eating of the papers. I just sent so many pieces of paper, that I need them to stamp them all “approved”. LOL

  11. March 6, 2008 at 7:23 pm

    Aha, MG. Okay, we’ll have them do a spell to approve it all!

    50 ways to hex your lover was the most fun I’ve had in a long while. I love witchy books anyway, but this one was laughoutloud fun! The slippers were a great idea. I have to go with the (almost) ex husband, though. Bite him, Fluff, get him good, Puff! Please please, pretty please? I am happy to see you are going to write more of the books, but fall is a LONG ways away!
    Thanks for the laughs.
