Guest - Linda Wisdom

Good morning all! One of our favorite author's is visiting us again today - the talented Linda Wisdom, author of the wonderfully imaginative Hex series and now branching off to an exciting new Demon series that you'll definitely want to catch. Sourcebooks is offering a give away so read on to find out how to enter the drawing.

Witches and Demons – Same Yet Different


First off, thank you so much, Lynda, for having me at Star-Crossed Romance! 

So many readers have emailed me asking ‘when will your next Hex book be out?’

Easy, it is out, just with a whole new look and titles.

My editor loved Declan, the demon hero in Demons Are A Girl’s Best Friend that she wanted to change the Hex series to a Demon series. The title, cover, and release date was changed while they worked on this.

Maggie was first introduced in Hex in High Heels when she showed up to arrest a rogue troll. There’s something about a kickass witch that appeals to me, so I knew she needed just the right guy. Declan, owner of an underground club called Damnation Alley, was a perfect fit.

To make it interesting I threw in a diamond-encrusted black widow spider tattoo looking for everlasting love, over caffeinated ferrets, an ancient Mayan curse, more demons, and a mouthy teenage girl who manages to get mixed up in it all. After all, why make it easy?

Since I’ve been working on an urban fantasy YA, it was a lot of fun to write Courtney in this book and I saw it as good practice for me.

My friends know how much I love writing my witches and I will continue to do so.

But there’s a lot more going on. Since I own the rights to many of my backlist books I’ve been putting them up for Kindle, Nook, and at www.smashwords.com and more books will be following.

As I said I’m working on the urban fantasy YA and hope to find a home for it, along with writing some original witchy novellas to put up myself.

After all, no reason for me to sit around and eat bon bons, is there?

Although, the prospect sounds like a lot of fun! Coffee, chocolate, and my Nook loaded with all sorts of books.

What about you? Is that your way of relaxation?

And! Here’s a sneak peek at my January 2012 cover. What do you think? This is Lili’s book.

I let a good book and some chocolate take me away :D

I'm gonna miss the fun toonie covers but these look great too!! Can't wait to read them.

Linda Wisdom said...

Sounds like a plan to me, Stephanie!

I've had a lot of dialogue on the new covers. Many loved the older ones, others love the new style. Still, it's the creamy filling that counts. :}

I like to relax with a mocha and a good book either paper or e doesn't matter as long as it's good.
I love your covers. Have to be honest I haven't read you yet but every time I see one of your covers I'm drawn to the book. Never fear you are in my TBR pile.

Diet Dr. Pepper, chocolate and a book. Sigh. Okay, a spider tatoo looking for love? LOLOL!

ElaineCharton said...

Dr Pepper and chocolate and a book and I'm happy. Maybe some whiskey or soco with the good doctor. :) Have to say That I find reading on my nook so much easier on my eyes.
I just finished this book. I was trying to string it out as I didn't want it to end.

Linda Wisdom said...

Hi Victoria. I'd say the signs are there for you to try the books. :}

Hi Pauline! Elle is a French black widow spider, so no wonder she wants love.

Hey Lil Sis! I hear ya on reading on the Nook.

Wonderful Blog, Linda. You asked about my "reading habits" --- how about a glass of wine, quiet music (no singing) in the background, and my favorite author(s) stories in hand, feet up --- couldn't ask for more or better. As to your new book cover coming out --- it is 'most enlightening'. Best, Joy

Linda Wisdom said...

Thanks Joy! I'm for the wine too. Coffee during the day, wine later on.

Great new cover.

My way to relax is just a few minutes with a good book.

Linda Wisdom said...

Hi donnas,

If you're like me you wish you had more time to read.
