Again – the month started out with really good numbers. Waiting to find out who won the drawing for a copy of *Outer Darkness* on A Moment With Mystee. Also – be watching her blog for my guest blog!
I am currently working on the latest OTS Mystery. There is something wonderful about the hidden world I’m writing about. Few regular folks get to see what actually happens in the occult “underground”. Not that it’s so exciting for those of us who are really into it, but it seems to be for others. And if you’ve never had the joy of visiting a genuine, working sex magick cult this next book is going to be a treat.
Now granted I do amp up my novels with some hair raising sensationalism and murder. Hollywood and novel sensationalism aside, the real arm raising, wind in your hair magick is rather fantastical visually speaking but I think it’s an apt metaphor for the feeling one can sometimes get from an act of magick. That internal evocation of strength, the confidence… and for that moment you are the most powerful magus out there. Then reality hits and we realize the most powerful magus in the world left the stove on, forgot to pay a bill, or needs to get to the DMV to pay his parking tickets. Just sayin… Magus or not, humans are imperfect by our very nature. Hence the reason the characters in my books aren’t all knowing or all wise or all powerful. Because I prefer the realistic view of magick to the fantastical and I think my readers do, too. Character flaws are innate within everyone and the beauty of creating characters means not only do you get to create the good stuff about them, but the bad stuff, too.
