Hello everyone...John's packing for vacation, and since his lovely wife, Jennifer Wells, is one of my chosen people--GO VIRGO!!--he asked me to take over the blog for today. Thankfully I was able to get over the most recent case of "Sun-burn" I had. LOL.
Anyway, Jennifer's got her third book coming out soon, a sequel to Magick Charm and the second book in the New Orleans Magick series. It's called Free Spirit, and the cover is below. Isn't it totally awesome??
Let's not forget the two talented artists who made this cover possible, either...Brittany Michel of Bad Carrot Studios, who is a double Virgo herself; and Samantha Harvey, an extremely talented graphic artist in her own right, who, while not ruled by me, is a Venus-ruled lady who the good lady Venus is extremely proud of. And before you ask, yes, I asked about Samantha before Venus went on retrograde...talk about planning for success!
Anyway...here's a look the plot:
Wild child Rachel is having a week so terrible, not even a pitcher of margaritas will help. When her evil boss shows up on her doorstep with a sob story, her request to stay a few nights turns into a whole lot more. She can’t even escape into some of her favorite haunts in the Quarter since she seems to have garnered the unwanted attention of some rabid readers. When her ghost-hunting assignment goes unexpectedly awry, Rachel unknowing releases a vengeful spirit.
Enduring a wicked houseguest and hiding from an over-enthusiastic fan all while trying to put a spirit back in her grave where she belongs is more challenging than sobriety during Mardi Gras. Can she and her family work some magick to put things right in the Crescent City or has Rachel bit off more veggie muffuletta than she can chew?
It's hard for me to know which one I'm going to like best, because Rachel is the one narrating this book. I love the cerebral Janie, but I love the spontaneity and metaphysical quirkiness of Rachel. Anyway, hopefully you've already purchased Magick Charm...I didn't know if you were aware that Mercury rules commerce and transactions, so please make sure that if you haven't, you do it and read it to be ready for the sequel.
I'm totally excited to see this book come out! I mean...think about it. Jennifer is smart, extremely talented, beautiful, and she's...well, married to John. So I guess three out of four is...well, it's 75% and while in most school systems that would still be a "C", the book is definitely an "A+".
The point is that it won't be long until the release date, which is scheduled for later this year. So mark your calendars now and make sure to get your electronic copy on Kindle on Monday, October 26. (I hear rumors that paperback versions of both books will be out in time for the holidays!)
That's it from here. An apple a day may keep the doctor away, but if you read one of Jennifer's books you won't care about the doctor or anything else until you're done reading the book. So go buy one for yourself and start your holiday shopping early with the gift of literacy!
