Lisa Blackwood is hosting me and "Bad Spelling" with a Q&A on her blog, Blackwood's Forest.
Lisa Blackwood is a writer of fantasy romance, gardener, lover of music and all things book related. She grudgingly lives in a small town in Southern Ontario, though she would much rather live deep in a dark forest, surrounded by majestic old-growth trees. Since she cannot live her fantasy, she decided to write fantasy instead. An abundance of pets, named after various Viking gods, helps to keep the creativity flowing. Freya, her ever faithful and beloved hellhound, ensures Lisa takes a break from the computer so they can rid the garden of cats with delusions of conquest.
Lisa has a book release approaching from MuseItUp Publishing. It's titled "Betrayal's Price." Alas, she has yet to receive her cover art since the book isn't scheduled until February next year, but here's an example from another book of hers. Pretty cool, eh?
Blurb for Stone's Kiss:
As a child, a near-drowning accident washed away Lillian’s memories. Now, her earliest and most beloved memory is of her eight-year-old self awaking at the foot of a brooding, stone gargoyle.
Even as an adult, she still finds comfort in Gregory, her gargoyle, never guessing he is more than cold stone until the day she is attacked by demonic creatures calling themselves the Riven. Long buried instincts and her tenacious will to live fuse into a magic-laced cry for help. Gregory rouses at her summons.
After the battle, Lillian persuades Gregory to talk and shortly one surprise is eclipsing the next in rapid succession. The humans she thought were her family are actually a powerful coven of witches at war with the Riven. Lillian isn’t human, instead she’s one of the most powerful workers of magic–an Avatar to the gods. Gregory has been her protector for many lifetimes, but troubles in their homeland forced him to flee with Lillian to the human world. She soon learns it wasn’t a drowning accident which stole her memories; it was Gregory. He fears Lillian is host to an infant demon, one capable of evil greater than the Riven. To further unbalance her equilibrium, she fears she’s falling in love with her guardian.
While she might be able to defeat the Riven with Gregory’s help, she doesn’t know if her fragile new love can survive the evil growing in her own soul. Nevertheless, she will fight her demon for Gregory’s sake and the chance at an eternal love.
A klutzy witch, a shaman's curse, a quest to save her family. Can Kat find her magic in time?
