Today I am very pleased to welcome Chrys Fey to my blog on her Witch/Ghost Blog tour. Chrys and I met through the AtoZchallenge and she's a wonderful author.
I have a deep love of witches and the supernatural, so I combined both to create my story, Witch of Death. I wanted the excitement that surrounds anything that is supernatural as well as the real aspects of being a witch today. The heroine and main witch in Witch of Death is Detective Liberty Sawyer. She solves murders and has psychic dreams. I’m sure there are witches just like her out there, only they can’t wield orbs of burning energy with their hands.
10 Facts about Real Witches:
1. While there are bad eggs, just as any person can be bad, witches are good, not evil.
2. Witches look like you and me. They don’t have warty faces, hook noses, or green skin.
3. There are soldiers in the U.S. military who are Wiccan.
4. Witches believe in harming none and never doing spells that will negatively impact others.
5. The Wiccan New Year is Samhain (Halloween).
6. Witches don’t dress up in silly or scary costumes on Halloween. Many believe dressing up is an affirmation and wear costumes to represent what they wish to be and accomplish for the New Year.
7. Witches only use wands to direct energy.
8. Not all witches are in a coven. Many are solitary practitioners.
9. Witches cast spells to manifest something they need or desire. This could be for protection, health, luck, courage, or love.10. Not all witches are Wiccan and not all who follow the Wiccan religion are witches.
Detective Reid Sanders doesn’t believe in the supernatural, but when he’s faced with a crime scene that defies the laws of nature, he has no other choice but to start believing. And solving a magical murder involves working with a witch.
Liberty Sawyer embodies the look of your classic evil witch, so, it’s no surprise when she uncovers the murderer is a witch that she becomes Reid’s number one suspect. If she can’t convince him otherwise, more people could lose their lives to dark magic, including her.
Jolie Montgomery, a twenty-one-year-old woman, wakes up in an alley next to her corpse. She has no memories of her murder or the night she died. She didn’t even see the killer’s face before he or she took her life. Wanting justice, Jolie seeks answers in the only way a ghost can...by stalking the lead detective on the case.
Avrianna Heavenborn is determined to find the person responsible for a young woman’s death. She gets closer to the killer’s identity with every clue she uncovers, and Jolie is with her every step of the way.
But if they don’t solve her murder soon, Jolie will be an earth-bound spirit forever.
Chrys Fey is the author of Hurricane Crimes and 30 Seconds. She is currently working on the sequel to Hurricane Crimes that’ll serve as book two in the Disaster Crimes series.
When Fey was six years old, she realized her dream of being a writer by watching her mother pursue publication. At the age of twelve, she started writing her first novel, which flourished into a series she later rewrote at seventeen. Fey lives in Florida where she is waiting for the next hurricane to come her way.
