White Magic


White Magic.

I love Charmed. It is the only Television series I've bought the entire set of. Love that show, love the idea of good witches.

And White Magic began to form in my head. It is the first in a five book series.

Lily, a fifteen year old, is obsessed with witches. Charmed, yes, but I mean all witches. I Dream of Jeannie, Sabrina the Teenaged Witch, Witches of East End...........that is the world she wants to be part of.

Lily dreams of becoming a witch. She has her own spell book, none of witch - oops, I mean which- actually work, but it's her very own, and she's spent years working on it. She's tried to give up on her dream, but that's impossible. It's part of who she is.

It's a secret, of course. What teenager wants to be shunned for daring to be different? And wanting to become a witch is as different as it gets. Over the years her peers and classmates have noticed how odd she was, but there is one close friend that Lily can be open and honest with.

Here comes the new guy to town, And Lily's friends end up in the hospital, deathly sick. Good guys, and bad guys, and the battles that follow. White magic fighting dark magic.

And you'll be able to meet Lily soon - as soon as the edits are finished.

This book is for the Charmed ones, my obsession that wouldn't let go!

Anyone else remember how great that show was?

White Magic...again!

I finally pushed myself to finish the worst edit - the first- and yesterday I breathed a huge sigh of relief. Done! Now for beta readers and then more edits, and hopefully, within 6 weeks, I will have it out there for you! On Amazon, hopefully Kobo, then Smashwords, unless I get stuck on one! Me and computers, I tell ya....

I did not allow myself to do any writing for the past two weeks- or however long it would take me to edit White Magic. And I didn't! Proud of me? Addicted any, yes? It was hard! And you'll never guess what I want to do today!

Sigh. Of course the floors need to be done first......maybe the bathrooms. But the dusting? Nope! I am putting my foot down! I am going to get in at least an hours worth of writing before the kids get home from school and then tonight, maybe, but we all know I am not a night person. Night owl, yes, but not a happy one. I'm grumpy at night. But I make up for it in the morning because I am just a bright ray of sunshine! See me bubbling? It's morning! Yay!

I will work on the Fairy series no to get those finished this week, and then back to Survival Zone. After that......well, I've got more series on my mind! An adult one, paranormal, a YA one, paranormal, or middle-grade, not sure yet, and another early reader one - superheroes! We'll see how that works out, because before I start another series I really would like to have the second ones finished in the Survival Zone series and the White Magic series, and the second and third finished in the Blurs series.

And I think I'm going to be doing another stand alone novel. Mmmm Hmmm. A horror. Gotta love Stephen King and Dean Koontz! And I do! I've got pages of notes for it but I am trying to stay organized and focused! But if I can't wait, I just can't wait. For now it's leaving me alone long enough to get edited. So now on to writing!

Oh stop nagging I didn't forget the floor.........
