Having a witchy time with Linda Wisdom + Giveaway

I am happy and pleased to have author, Linda Wisdom stop by to discuss her latest book.



No More Ms. Nice Witch


Stasi Romanov is the sweet witch from the class of 1313 at the Witches Academy.

Stasi Romanov is the kind-hearted witch.

Stasi Romanov is the witch loyal to all.

Stasi Romanov is there for her friends.

So what happened? Why did she lose her temper and be ready to pretty much zap her surroundings?

First, she was served with papers that she was to be sued in Wizards Court because she allegedly gave a human customer a hexed sachet that guaranteed the woman’s cheating husband wouldn’t return to her. Was that a good thing? That’s for Stasi to know, if she did it, that is.

To make matters worse the plaintiff’s wizard attorney is gorgeous! We’re talking surfer dude type and the last thing she wants is to lust over the enemy.

There’s just one problem. The guy’s wearing red hearts over his head and Stasi has the same red hearts over hers. Cupid’s way of letting them know they were meant to be together.

You’d think that would be more than enough for a witch to handle. Pile on that the lake in her town is harmed by olde magick. The upcoming lunar eclipse coupled by Mercury Retrograde affects the townspeople that are now looking at her as the new version of the Wicked Witch of the West. And what about Samhain coming up where the veil between the living and the dead are the thinnest and the town’s ghosts like to return and hang out?

No matter how nice you are, would you really be able to keep your cool and continue to be a wonderful witch if all this was going on in your life? Or would you think about coming up with some creative hexes to put a few people in their place?

What would you do? And if you want to see how Stasi handles this, pick up a copy of Wicked By Any Other Name.

Linda

That sounds like a great book. It's original, I have to say! Not the usual teenage/witch/spell book. I like it!
