Chrys Fey - Witch/Ghost Blog Tour

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.

Real Witches

By

Chrys Fey

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.

Blurb:

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.

Blurb:

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.

  1. I didn't know about the affirmation part of dressing up on Samhain. You Witch of Death sounds like a cool person. Tash & I have magical detectives in one of our stories as well, The Haward Twins in The Haward Mysteries, and it is interesting to play with excitement of magic, but also put it in a contemporary setting.

    I hope you are enjoying your Blog Tour and that your books are doing well.

    1. I learned about that in my research. I'm sure some witches still like to have fun dressing up as funny characters and even spooky things, though.

      Magical detectives are the best! There's also a magical detective in Ghost of Death, but I won't reveal how that detective is magical...it's a secret. ;P

      I am enjoying my blog tour. Thank you so much for hosting me! :D

  2. Interesting! We get so caught up in the fairy tale witches we tend to forget about the ones that exist today.

    1. We do, and for real witches it can be quite exasperating, especially when they are said to be evil.

  3. Fascinating facts. People generally do have old folktale stereotypes in their minds when they think of witches. I love that a modern witch could be anyone! :)

    1. They do and that is what is so upsetting for witches. Oh yes, anyone could be a witch or practice Wicca. Anyone. :)

  4. Great facts. I knew #4. In high school, I did a report on Wicca and learned some cool things.

    1. I had always wanted to do a report on witches but never had the opportunity. I'm such a nerd, because I think that would've been fun. :P

  5. Interesting facts about witches. I actually had no idea they actually used wands on occasion.

  6. Chrys - I bet they're really glad the green skin thing isn't true - just think of the make-up bill! I've read about Wicca before - it's a fascinating subject.

    Hi Tasha :-)

    1. Ha! That's funny. And it would be terribly obvious who is a witch if they all did, indeed, have green skin.

  7. A group of friends and I formed a coven many years ago, We identified as witches, practiced guided meditations, cast spells of protection, luck, and health, and celebrated the summer and winter solstice and the vernal and autumnal equinoxes. Those were lovely times, lovely friendships. Thank you for the reminder, Chris, and for trying to sweep away the persistent myths about witches and Wicca.

      You're welcome for the reminder. And I hope that one day these silly persistent myths will be a thing of the past.
