Let’s Get This Party Started…

It’s time for what I guess has become my annual Halloween Blog Party.  This year I am thrilled to welcome author Linda Wisdom, author of many wonderful books and a fabulous new paranormal series that I love.

 

To get things started, I dragged our guest of honor away from the punch bowl (and the cute Vamp) in the corner to introduce herself and tell you a little about her fun and fascinating world…

 

In My World

First off, a short intro. I’m Linda Wisdom and for many years was known as Linda Randall Wisdom in category romance, although I started out as Linda Wisdom with my writing, so at least it’s not too confusing! While I wrote several paranormals for category I’m now writing the flat out fun paranormals that make me laugh and I hope they do the same for you.

 

I like to call this In My World because that’s how I look at it. Just like the t-shirt, I live in a world of mine, but that’s okay, they know me here. So what goes on in my world.

 

In my world witches don’t strain their backs standing over a bubbling cauldron. And some witches might even have Martha Stewart designed cauldrons. Because for all we know she could be a witch!

 

A witch’s blood is poisonous to vampires or at least gives them serious heartburn, which means you won’t see them sporting love bites any time soon.

 

Vampires wouldn’t be caught undead in an opera cape and sleeping in a coffin is so 14th century. More like designer suits or even jeans and t-shirts. And spray tans are a boon for many of them since tanning beds so didn’t work out for them!

 

Weres love the carnival atmosphere and enjoy working Midways and fairs. If the guy manning the Tilt-A-Whirl has lots of hair, you’ll know enough to stay clear of him during a full moon. But some still also keep their existence a secret and could be the last thing you’d expect.

 

Ghosts really don’t want to parade around in a shroud and many times even complain about what they were buried in. They want updated wardrobes and all the comforts of home. Just ask Irma, Jazz’s cranky spirit haunting her T-Bird.

 

Wizards are lawyers in Century City or work as head librarians insisting they be addressed as The (long e) Librarian and you better make it sounds capitalized if you ever need to head back for research material again and the magickal library hovers in various realms with entrances popping up anywhere. If you’re Jazz, you could find it in a swamp. If you’re Stasi, it would be in a lovely area. See why you don’t piss off The Librarian?

 

In my world witches have Starbucks addictions and live for Victoria’s Secret sales along with wearing man chomping bunny slippers that have a magick all their own.

 

In my world, witches can be world famous romance writers who coined the word diva. Or a security specialist that loves nothing more than getting down and dirty. Or an herbalist who’s happiest puttering around in her garden.

 

My world doesn’t seem all that different than the “real” world, but it is. Because witches have powers we can’t imagine, ignore the baggy black gowns and pointy hats, vampires leave the capes at home and weres like to party.

 

My world is a fairy tale for grown ups.

 

Linda

 

Thanks Linda!

 

Doesn’t that sound like a fun world you’d like to be a part of?
Linda mentions quite a few interesting things that go on in her world…which of these interests you the most?

 

One lucky commenter from today will get to experience Linda’s world by winning a copy of Hex Appeal!

 

I’ll announce the winner tomorrow so don’t delay, comment today (Hmm…I seem to have turned into Dr. Seuss).
Be sure to return tomorrow to see if you won and for more partying!

  2. Laura J says:

    Hi Linda! What a fun world you have. I’m really looking forward to reading these books.

  3. Crystal B. says:

    Hi Linda. I like your world. 🙂 I would love to read Hex Appeal.

  4. Hey Linda!
    Your world is a fun place for sure! I’ve got my copy of Hex Appeal in line behind Kendra’s–if I ever get time to read again!
    Have fun this week!
    Cheryl

  5. Linda Wisdom says:

    Thanks Sidhevicious!

    I figure if I’m going to have my own world, I’ll have a fun and magickal one.

    Linda

  6. Quilt Lady says:

    I kind of like your world can I come into it. I would love to have a few powers of my own. How do you get them.

  7. Fedora says:

    Linda, I love the idea of wizards being either lawyers or head librarians! There’s power in those books! 😉

  8. Linda Wisdom says:

    Everyone’s welcome, Quilt Lady. Just be prepared for the unexpected. And sadly, you have to be born with the powers and they’ll grow as you do.

    Linda

  9. Linda Wisdom says:

    Thanks Fedora!

    As you can tell The (long e if you please :}) Librarian has many strictly enforced rules in his realm.

    And Trev as a long time wizard and lawyer worked well too.

    Lina

  10. Liza says:

    Linda, your world sounds wonderful. Hex Appeal sounds like a really fun read. Where can I get a pair of those man chomping bunny slippers?

  11. Jennifer Y says:

    Wow, look at all the partygoers…as you probably could tell from my reviews of the books in the series, I love Linda’s world as well. It is such great fun and I’d love to be a part of it.

    Hmmm…are Jazz and Krebs looking for another roommate? 🙂

    Thanks so much Linda for letting me host a party for you.

  12. Jennifer says:

    I would love to be a witch in your world Linda, or since I wasn’t born with powers, I don’t mind dying a quick death and getting stuck in Jazz’s T-bird, or Krebs part of the house (he sounds kinda cute)Hehe.

  13. Kelly says:

    I really like your world…as a matter of fact I’ve started reading 50 Ways to Hex Your Lover…really great fun.

    I already know I’ll have to have Hex Appeal cause this is way too much fun to stop at one… 🙂

  14. Linda Wisdom says:

    Thanks Liza!

    Fluff and Puff consider themselves only children, so to speak. Plus, another pair like them could only be scarier even if in a fun way.

    In Wicked By Any Other Name, you’ll meet Horace, a totally perverted gargoyle who loves to hang out in the dressing rooms in Stasi’s lingerie boutique.

    Linda

  15. Linda Wisdom says:

    Thanks for having me Jennifer!!!! This is so fun!

    Are you sure you’d want to share the house with them? You never know what might happen. :}

    Linda

  16. ThatBrunette says:

    Jennifer, you make me want to read more. You’re a book pusher, aren’t you??? 🙂

    Linda, thanks for including ghosts. They are so rarely used in modern books. I thought there were due a new image. I also like that you modernized old stereotypes of paranormals. Ah, spray tans and Starbucks!

    Would you consider writing a ghost story or are you sticking with the witches?

  17. Linda Wisdom says:

    LOL The T-Bird could get a big crowded. You’d have an easier time in the house although more and more readers want to snuggle up with Krebs. If Croc and Delilah will let them.

    Linda

  18. Linda Wisdom says:

    Thanks Kelly!

    I love books that you can’t stop at with just one and writing them is even more fun.

    Linda

  19. Linda Wisdom says:

    Thanks ThatBrunette!

    I’ve written ghosts in category and I’m sure I’ll be writing more ghosts. In fact, one will be showing up in a future witch book. A very sexy one at that.

    Linda

  20. Cheryl S. says:

    Your world sounds like too much fun. Is there room for me? Looking forward to reading Hex Appeal.

  21. Linda Wisdom says:

    Thanks Cheryl S!

    I think there’s room for anyone who believes in magick.

    Linda

  22. Jane says:

    HI Linda,
    Your witches sound a lot like me. I’m always looking forward to Victoria’s Secret Semi-Annual sale where practically everything is half off.

  23. Linda Wisdom says:

    Hi Jane,

    Yes, one of Jazz’s favorite stores for shopping. And her love for bath and body products. I’m a big fan of The Body Bakery so it was natural she would be too.

    Linda

  24. Jennifer Y says:

    Jennifer, you make me want to read more. You’re a book pusher, aren’t you???

    And proud of it, too! LOL

  25. Jennifer Y says:

    Are you sure you’d want to share the house with them? You never know what might happen.

    Well…when you put it that way…hmm…maybe I can just get a house nearby…and maybe Nick can introduce me to some of his buddies? Seriously, is there room for a witch named Jennifer in one of your books? LOL

  26. tashat says:

    i would love to read about jazz
    and would really like having bunny slippers

  27. Tabitha Shay says:

    Hey Linda,
    Well, girl, you know I’m a big fan of yours, although we both write about witches, our stories are nothing alike…Don’t we have a lot of fun creating our worlds…I think your book covers are adorable and hungry bunny slippers, how funny…You rock!!!…Tabs

  28. Linda Wisdom says:

    A much better idea, Jennifer. Plus Mrs. Sanderson next door might want to sell her house.

    Linda

  29. Linda Wisdom says:

    Hi Gypsywitch!

    The slippers do add something extra. Plus comfy footwear and your house would be bug free.

    Linda

  30. Linda Wisdom says:

    Hi Tabs!

    Isn’t that the fun part? That we all can write about different witches?

    Linda

  31. Greta says:

    Okay moving out of my world into yours, which sounds way more interesting and exciting. I’m adding your books to my TBB list.

  32. Wow! I would love to live in Linda’s world! Her vampires and wizards sound fascinating!

    Rhonda :0)

  33. Linda Wisdom says:

    LOL Greta!

    I still have a t-shirt that reads “I live in a world of my own. That’s okay, they know me here.”

    Linda

  34. Linda Wisdom says:

    Thanks Rhonda!

    I figure my world isn’t boring.

    Linda

  35. Lori T says:

    Hi Linda~

    Your world sounds really fun and I would like to be there. I think that I would definitely like to see those man chomping bunny slippers!

  36. Linda Wisdom says:

    Hi Lori,

    If you want to see them tattooed on my ankle you’ll find them in photos at my MySpace. The artist did a great job of depicting the true Fluff and Puff

  37. Terri W. says:

    Hi Linda,

    I would love to live in your world, it seems so fun!

    Please enter me in the contest for “Hex Appeal.” I definately would love to read it!

    Thanks!

  38. Linda Wisdom says:

    Thanks Terri W!

    I love my world too. And at least so far no one’s showed up with one of those non-stylish jackets with lots of buckles. :}

    Linda

  39. Hi Linda – I had to laugh about Starbucks and Victoria’s Secret Sales. Your books sound great.

  40. Linda Wisdom says:

    Thanks Shelley!

    Jazz does have her priorities and Starbucks and Victoria’s Secret are only a couple of them.

    Linda
