Announcing Miss Spell's Hotel

Did you know I have a new book coming out next week? It's true! I do! Here's the OFFICIAL official announcement!

*cue the trumpets*
May I introduce... Miss Elle Spell, owner of the Know Spell Hotel in her debut book Miss Spell's Hotel!

If you're a Maggie fan, you're going to want to pick this one up. It takes place on the Other Side a few years before Maggie's adventures, but several familiar faces show up. You'll get some insight into how the ball started rolling in the Magical Tracker series...

So, I'm up to my neck finishing this manuscript, but one of the questions I'm frequently asked is how do I get my ideas for my stories.

This one I actually have a good answer for!

It was October and NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) was right around the corner. They say a picture is worth a thousand words (four pages, double spaced in Times New Roman) and this cover designer I follow was clearing out some premades. This one grabbed my attention and I couldn't let it go.

At the SAME time, it is funny how what we watch or read inspires our imagination. What's the old saying... our thoughts are 90% just repeating the things we've heard or seen?

So I'm binge watching Twin Peaks for the first time and The Addams Family, and they squish together like chocolate and peanut butter.

Add them to the mix of this cover image and the world of my Maggie MacKay series and all the imagery of Halloween... and out comes Miss Spell!

If you'd like to check out Miss Spell, she is available for pre-order on Nook, Kobo, and iTunes.  (Amazon comes next week when she's live!)
