Mark your calendars for the release date on this book. It’s coming out on November 23rd. That’s right, this year!

About the Characters — Magick & Moonlight

Hi, readers! This Q&A was originally exclusive to Mary E Thompson’s newsletter subscribers, but now I’m spreading the word…

TITLE: Magick & Moonlight (book one of the Magick Series)

AUTHOR: Marie Lavender

GENRE: Contemporary Romantic Fantasy

PITCH: Jessie hides her magickal secret to protect herself from Ethan, the town’s new resident. But she never imagined casting a simple spell could turn out so wrong, and oh, so right.

[**Second edition, complete with a new scene!]

Love spells are dangerous, even more so for those who cast them…

Ethan Hamilton moves to a lazy little town in Oregon, hoping to escape his demons. Instead, he discovers a woman dancing nude in the moonlight. This woman who claims she is a witch dazzles him with her sensual presence. He thinks she’s crazy, but what if she’s not?

Jessie Anderson has been taught that her kind hides who they really are. And she has a problem on her hands. Someone knows her secret and she must do all she can to protect herself. What other choice does she have? Jessie casts a spell on a good man, a man with whom she can’t fight her attraction. The spell doesn’t work quite as planned.

Messing with free will is always a bad idea.

To top it off, Ethan’s treatment of her is so addictive. Deep down, she knows the effects will wear off, and yet his feelings seem genuine. It’s just a spell…right?

 

AUTHOR Q&A – About the Characters

Character Name: Ethan Hamilton

  1. What is your character’s profession? And your character’s greatest strengths?

Ethan used to be a police officer back in Seattle, but he is settling into a new home in Yachats, Oregon. He’s generous, honorable, and cares about other people.

  1. What are his/her greatest weaknesses?

He’s very hard on himself, and sees his flaws first rather than noticing any accomplishments. It’s also a challenge for him to trust others, or accept help when he needs it.

  1. What are some of his/her favorite foods?

Ethan is a real foodie, and in another life, he could’ve been a famous chef. He learned how to cook from his grandmother, and has made a point to expand on his talents in the kitchen. This tends to impress the women he dates.

  1. What’s a positive quality that your character is unaware that he or she has?

He is more forgiving than he gives himself credit for.

  1. Will readers like or dislike this character, and why?

Yes, I think they’ll see he’s a good man, that despite his plight, he is deserving of a decent life.

 

Character Name: Jessie Anderson

  1. What is your character’s profession? And your character’s greatest strengths?

Jessie owns a small giftshop, selling homemade candles and other New Age wares. Also as a Wiccan, she is a strong, independent soul, and finds joy in her craft.

  1. What are his/her greatest weaknesses?

She doesn’t easily trust others. She fears no one will understand her and her gifts, doesn’t even open up to her neighbors in town.

  1. What are some of his/her favorite foods?

Jessie fondly remembers the homemade foods her grandma used to make, but nowadays she doesn’t have a lot of time or energy to spend on a good meal.

  1. What’s a positive quality that your character is unaware that he or she has?

She sees beauty in the world, in the gifts Nature has provided.

  1. Will readers like or dislike this character, and why?

I think they will empathize with Jessie’s fear of someone discovering her secrets, and root for the couple’s relationship to succeed.

About the Book:

With more attention than she ever imagined, how can she tell if this is real or fantasy?

 

Chased by a group of angry men. Saved by quite a hunk.

This is not the résumé Ginger Halloway ever imagined having. But thanks to a miracle pill, which makes her size 22 body instantly sexy, that’s what happened.

Yet, now Lance Franklin is showing interest in her, and she can’t figure out if he really likes her for her, or if it’s just because of a bizarre drug.

And her wild bunch of friends, The Misfits…well, they’re always getting her into some interesting situations.

So, yep, business as usual. Except for the guy. What the hell should she do about him?

As for Lance, he…

Author Interview – Marie Lavender

Here’s a new interview about my children’s fantasy book!

Johnny Oddsocks

I’m really pleased to announce that today’s author interview is the fabulous Marie Lavender!

Marie is a multi-genre author, with 21 books, spanning romance to fantasy to children’s books. Marie is well known amongst writing circles for running a fantastically supportive blog, showcasing many of her fellow authors.

I hope you enjoy her interview where you can find out what Marie likes to read, why she writes and which of the many genres she writes in is her favourite!

Hi Marie, so what was your favorite children’s book growing up, and why?

Hmm…that’s hard to narrow down. I’ve always loved reading books. I guess it could’ve been a cross between The Bobbysey Twins series and The Boxcar Children book series.

What is your favorite children’s book to read to children, and why?

I don’t have children, per se, just fur babies! 😉 But I took a children’s literature class in…

‘Never Have I Ever’ Writer Tag – My Take on It

Hi, readers! I spotted this writer tag on C.G. Drews’ blog, and I thought I’d jump in too! 😉 This also helps readers see if any of us are guilty of falling into these stereotypes.

Photo by Hannah Grace on Unsplash

Let’s get started, shall we?

Started a novel that I didn’t finish…

Who, me? 😳 Does having over 100 works in progress count? Dude, there’s not enough time in the world to get them all done, but I’ll do my best.

Written a story completely by hand…

Yep! Probably several. I used to be pretty old school, writing everything on paper. I still like to write some scenes that way, but I’m just as comfortable composing on the keyboard.

Changed tenses midway through a story…

Definitely! For my older stories, a lot were told from 1st person POV. Needless to say, it is so difficult to switch from saying ‘I’ to ‘He/She’. More in the sentence will be changed than you can even imagine, just for the whole thing to sound right. That’s why these days, I rarely ever do anything that’s not third person perspective.

Not researched anything before starting a story…

I’ve done both! Mostly, I am guilty of launching into a story full blast, and then getting caught up in the details somewhere. Then I must force myself to slow down so I can look something up and it makes more sense afterward.

Changed my protagonist’s name halfway through a draft…

Oops! That happens sometimes with the use of common names. My memory isn’t what it used to be either, so sometimes I have to really battle through the brain fog and check to see if I am reusing a name. Minor characters I don’t worry so much about, unless there’s some obvious confusion. But I don’t necessarily want to repeat a main character’s name.

Written a project in a month or less…

Actually, I did, with A Little Magick, a kid’s fantasy story and book two of The Magick Series. Since the tale is shorter anyway, it wasn’t too difficult for me to keep focused on it and finish it in two or three weeks. The editing went fast too.

Fallen asleep while writing…

🙄 Guilty! My stamina isn’t what it once was, plus you add in the side effects of medication, and you’re completely screwed. I just need to learn to start writing a new story idea a bit earlier in the evening, and not wait so late.

Corrected someone else’s grammar IRL/online…

Oh, I have, with both. Though it still drives me nuts to see mistakes anywhere, I’ve learned to curb the urge to say anything. Not everyone is a grammar freak like me. Now, when it comes to a manuscript? That better be as polished as humanly possible! 😉

Yelled in all caps at myself in the middle of a novel…

I think I did, maybe a couple times. I don’t remember all the details clearly, but I recall writing this:

WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU THINKING HERE? CHANGE THIS!!!

😆

Used “I’m writing” as an excuse…

An excuse for what? Is there any other excuse? Since most of my peeps at home don’t take my writing all that seriously, I consider it a good excuse, but they probably don’t. LOL. Though, there have been times I meant to do editing or write a chapter on new project, and then I got too tired or sick to put much effort into it. A writer’s life can get exhausting! 😛

Killed a character that was based off someone I know in real life…

Hmm…do I have to admit it? Okay, I may have put some of my horrible ex in the villain, Lamonte, in book two of my historical romance trilogy. And a bit in the first book’s villain too! (Shrugs.) He was a major influence in how I developed as a person. Why wouldn’t that bleed into my stories?

Used pop culture references in a story…

Definitely! Sometimes I also do that to ground a contemporary work further in reality. The problem is that, as time passes, some references become outdated. For example, a newer generation may not recognize all of my comments.

Written between the hours of 1 a.m. and 6 a.m…

I’m a night owl, so I usually won’t let anything except absolute exhaustion slow me down if I’m on the trail of a good story.

Drank an entire pot of coffee while writing…

Nope, not coffee. But I’ve been guilty of water and soda, maybe even large amounts of tea.

Written down dreams to use in potential novels…

Now and then, a dream will inspire a story. Not often, though, because I don’t always remember my dreams.

Published an unedited story on the internet/blog/Wattpad…

😮 Unfortunately, yes. I do my best to edit my work as well as possible now. In the earlier days of this career, however, I just had no concept of editing my own work in various ways, besides doing one read-through. Now I cringe to think of the old stuff out there somewhere. This is another reason why I’m revamping my backlist (books released under former pen names) and re-releasing them in collections via this brand.

Procrastinated homework because I wanted to write…

Maybe now and then this happened while I was in school. But I had a pretty good work ethic, and I would push myself to the point of obsession to get assignments done. Only then would I stop to work on my writing. It was easier to do both when I had writing classes. I had so many that weren’t related to that. Even though learning about those studies made me a more well-rounded student and person in general, that’s why it took so long for me to finish writing the first book of my historical series.

Typed so long that my wrists hurt…

YES! Actually, if I’m immersed in a story for long enough, my entire hands hurt. Bad. Of course, it probably doesn’t help that I have fibromyalgia (and arthritis is hereditary).

Spilled a drink on my laptop while writing…

Definitely! And food several times. I am already a clumsy person, but I have to be careful having anything around my computer that isn’t, um…technology-friendly.

Forgotten to save my work/draft…

OMG, yes. 😥 I’ve kicked myself several times for that bad habit. Now (after almost losing two full novel-length manuscripts), I try to make sure I save everything as often as possible, and have my drafts stored in a safe place.

Finished a novel…

I have finished many, thank you very much. No one could ever call me a lazy writer, and it still boggles the mind why people assume every Libra is guilty of being lazy. That’s a silly stereotype.

Cried while writing a scene…

For sure! I haven’t done my job well until I’ve connected with a character on that level.

Created maps of my fictional worlds…

I guess I draw the line at that. I have a vivid image in my head of how everything looks, but I can’t call myself an ‘artist’. Not only would it take forever (the Libra in me doesn’t have the patience for that crap! LOL), I just prefer to paint a picture with words instead.

Researched something shady for a novel…

👿

Two research topics which I did for a couple projects that you might find disturbing:

What is the chemical makeup of said drug so I can use it to add a bio-weapon in my story?

How long does it take for a dead body to decompose in the water?

Not to mention I think I scared myself when I wrote from a killer’s point of view a few times…

Feel free to use the questions for your own blog! So, what about you? Ever researched anything questionable for the purpose of creativity? Ever written a story or novel so fast that you amazed yourself? Let’s find out everyone else’s angle on this…I look forward to reading your comments! 😀

COMING SOON – Pre-order a steamy rom com!

Hi, readers! I have a new release coming up in March. Don’t miss this one!

Chasing Ginger is the start of a new series, and a little different than my usual books. As a big fan of romantic comedies, I decided to take what I knew about the genre, add an even sexier spin, with the backdrop of a truly farfetched situation, and throw in a plus-sized heroine. Yep, there’s some pretty foul language too…check it out!

Writing in the Modern Age blog New Year’s Eve Post

The publish button wasn’t working on my other blog, so I had to move the post here… 😥

Writing in the Modern Age 2019 Year in Review:

Big Reflections – Past and Present


 

Hi, everyone! A year I imagined would crawl right by, in fact, did

not. Instead it flew so fast, I suffered vertigo several times. 😉

 

Tomorrow we’ll adjust our calendars to reflect that life has

changed in a blink, welcoming 2020. For this year’s annual review

post, I’d like to commemorate the evolution of Writing in the

Modern Age. Six years ago, I opened the blog to guest authors and

it’s been a wild ride ever since. WritModAge grew from the initial

seed of a place to help other writers at any stage of their careers, all

the way to not just that, but also a site where readers can

comfortably discover their new, favorite authors! Through author and

character interviews, book and writing service interviews, guest

articles, book spotlights and mega giveaways, it has become a unique
resource for writers and readers alike.

 

So…give a warm round of applause to all 350 content writers and

authors who visited us via various events from 2013 to 2019.

However, there were 104 guest writers this year alone. That’s

awesome! 🙂

Each author in this post will be listed according to their latest
book title, a site where you’ll find more information about
that writer, plus a top viewed or most popular post on the
blog. Without further ado, let’s take a look at all the authors
and books represented, starting from the launch of Writing
in the Modern Age.

Kudos to all these authors on their successes

through the years! 🙂

Also, mega thanks to the participating authors

and guest content writers throughout 2019, and,

of course, from the time Writing in the Modern

Age officially launched six years ago!

One final note…we lost a talented writer of

action/adventure, sci-fi, noir and pulp fiction. He

passed on November 5th.

 

 

Rest in peace, Tom Johnson. You will be missed. 😥
 
Once again, thanks to all the authors and loyal followers
