So today is our last day of the party *sniff sniff*…but it’s not over yet!!! Yesterday we talked a little about the characters and many of you showed interest in learning more. So before the party ends (and to give you some even more reasons to pick up these fun books), Linda is going to tell you a little more about some of the characters you’ll meet in this fabulous series…
Cast and Crew of Jazz’s World
Sometimes I think my secondary characters are more fun than the lead characters.
We all know Irma, Jazz’s ghostly sidekick and Fluff and Puff practically have their own publicist. But what about the others that show up in the books?
If you’ve read 50 Ways to Hex Your Lover and Hex Appeal, you’re familiar with Dweezil, Jazz’s boss at All Creatures Car Service. Jazz has always hoped Dweezil is the last of his kind because she doesn’t want to think there’s more like him out there. Tall, scrawny with olive-green skin and a few anatomical differences we don’t want to consider, Dweezil is the excitable type. It doesn’t take much to get him going, especially if it has to do with money. He could teach Scrooge a few lessons on how to hang on to his money.
The (long e if you please) Librarian is one of those tightly wrapped individuals. He wants every i dotted and t crossed. And don’t be even a fraction of a second late returning a book or scroll to his domain or you’d be banned from his realm for decades or centuries. Just ask Jazz. The Librarian is a character I love writing because of his attitude, his prissy manner and the way he considers The Library his own kingdom. He has the power and he knows it.
As for humans, we have Detective Larkin with the LA County Sheriff’s Department. His taste in ties is deplorable, he tends to sound like a throwback to Philip Marlowe’s time and he has trouble believing in the supernatural community. But thanks to Jazz he learns way more than he ever cared to know.
For Hex Appeal I added Croc and Delilah, a pair of sexy crocodile (literally) stilettos that fellow witch Thea sent Jazz. The best part about these shoes is that they can change color and even style to go with whatever she’s wearing. Great for travel, but we’d still want to go shoe shopping. And they’re total girly shoes as in they love to get into Jazz’s make up and perfume and they think Krebs is the hottest human around. Poor guy isn’t even safe in his own bed!
And moving ahead, you can expect to meet Horace, Stasi’s gargoyle of a fixture in her shop. Eight inches high, gray stone and a total pervert. He speaks his mind and loves to hang out in the lingerie boutique’s dressing rooms when they’re occupied. So you just might want to check it out before you start undressing.
And Bogie, Stasi’s beloved Yorkie/Chihuahua who’s based on my own Bogie, but hers has his own magick in that he can disappear at will and tends to float more than walk.
And Blair’s vintage Kit-Kat clock, Felix, which sounds like Paul Lynde in my head. Felix and Horace get along very well in that they love gossip and there’s always plenty of that in the small town of Moonstone Lake where Stasi and Blair live.
Naturally, they’re not the end, but I don’t want to get too far ahead.
And if you have any questions for them, ask away. I’m sure they’d be only too happy to answer.
Thanks Linda…and you heard her, do you have any questions for any of these characters or any last questions for Linda…they are all around here somewhere.
Ask away and I’ll see if I can drag them away from whatever they are doing.
Today’s the final day of giveaways and one lucky commenter will win a copy of Hex Appeal!
I’ll announce the winner tomorrow!
A Big Thanks to all of you for partying with us this week!
I hope you have enjoyed yourselves and enjoyed meeting Linda and some of her characters.
And if you are looking for some fun paranormals, consider picking up these books.
