Novel Magic: A-Viking We Go with Jean Grant 3 comments

Researching Culture and Setting: Viking ships, Abbeys, and Enchanting Castles Like any novel[ist], I take my research seriously! A Hundred Breaths delves into the Norse culture and I was fortunate to tour an actual Viking ship, the Draken Harald Hårfagre, last year. When I heard this ship was coming to a port near us (Mystic, CT, and only an hour drive away), I messaged the captain and booked myself tickets. The researcher in me squealed with delight. The ship […]


Novel Magic: Finding Love is like Walking a Tightrope 1 comment

Finding love can be like walking a tightrope By Addison Brae   While I was jogging in my neighborhood park right before Valentine’s Day a few years ago, I saw a guy walking on a tightrope. I always wondered how people learn how to walk on a tightrope. They practice. He tied a narrow nylon strap to two trees and walked on it between them. It reminded me how much dating is like walking a tightrope. So many girls, […]


Novel Magic: Crescent Creek Collection by Viviana MacKade 1 comment

A Crescent Creek Haunting by Viviana MacKade Every place has its heart, which is made from all of its people’s feelings, all of their lives. People make bricks and rocks come to life, turn houses in homes. Make them come alive. Which is why I’m sure every place has ghosts. Crescent Creek is a Contemporary Series, so you won’t find any ghost or supernatural thing happening there. It doesn’t mean Crescent Creek doesn’t have its own ghosts. It’s Florida, […]


Novel Magic: Banshee, I Hear You

Banshee, I Hear You by Mageela Troche In Irish folklore, a banshee is a woman who heralds death by wailing. She is described as ghastly complexion and with red eyes from the tears. So, why would I call my heroine, Rowen MacKenzie a banshee? Rowen is pale skin—so pale that you can see her veins beneath her skin—with pale blonde hair that is looks more white than blonde and light blue eyes that seem almost colorless. For the people […]


Novel Magic: The Dream Doctor by J.J. DiBenedetto 2 comments

You just never know where one little idea will take you. My Novel magic guest, J.J. DiBenedetto, let inspiration lead the way to a 10-book series. Magic? IF you are looking for something to binge . . . The Dream Doctor–Can you call it Magic? Sara, the heroine of the Dream Doctor Mysteries wouldn’t call her “gift” magic, because she’s a doctor – someone who’s logical and believes in science, and of course there’s no such thing as magic.
