Magic Unveiled: An Anthology

Do you like shows like Supernatural or stories like American Gods?

Well, there's a soon-to-be released magical realism anthology that will collide the paranormal and the modern world. This is going to be exciting!

Some of your favorite authors who've been featured on this blog have written stories for this collection, as well as some amazing new talent. From USA Today & Amazon bestselling authors, to award-winning writers, this anthology is going to keep you up at night until you finish.


Either the wondrous or the perilous awaits us when we play a hand at magic.

A hard boiled detective chases the supernatural, unveiling a frightening world right alongside modern man's. A mother, able to grant wishes, shows us we must be careful what we wish for. An African Orisha might just pass you in downtown Los Angeles, eager to siphon some of your energy so that he will not fade out of existence.

From heart wrenching, ghostly goodbyes to relatives, to discovering sparks of otherworldly magic permeating contemporary society, these nine tales of magical realism and paranormal fantasy come together to form this enchanting and gripping anthology.

Magic Unveiled is presented to you by USA Today bestselling author Samantha LaFantasie, Seattle Times and Amazon bestselling author Raven Oak, Amazon bestselling authors Alesha Escobar and Devorah Fox, NIEA Finalist H.M. Jones, Alice Marks, Jayme Beddingfield, Ronovan Hester, and Keith Goodno.

Q&A With Isabella Today!

I’m a fan of fictional characters having social media accounts–because, you know, I already imagine them as friends in my head and it’s just cool :)

I thought it’d be fun for Isabella to venture into the world of Twitter, and not only that, but interact with you all! One of the highest praises the Gray Tower Trilogy receives is that of its heroine, Isabella George. I’m sure there are questions about her life, the story, other characters, and possibly her future that you would love to ask her about. Well, here’s your chance!

Today I'd like you to follow Isabella on Twitter @AlchemicalSpy and submit your questions or comments to her. She'll be popping in throughout the day answering your questions and responding to tweets. I hope you can join in! If you don’t have a Twitter account, sign up today, and let’s have some fun.

What's Wrong With Being Nice? Likable vs. Unlikable Heroines

To be a heroine, you've got to be tough.

You can't easily give up, you have to face and overcome your fears, and yes occasionally you may have to kick ass and take names.

I remember coming home from school in the afternoons and watching the Wonder Woman television show with my big sis. We loved it! She was beautiful, independent, and fought for justice. We liked all that, and we liked her.

We're supposed to like our heroes and heroines, right? We have to relate to them on some level because whether consciously or subconsciously, we expect them to be a better version of ourselves. We admire people we can look up to. They don't have to be perfect, because we cringe at the idea of the too-perfect-for-everyone Mary Sue.


Is there such a thing as an unlikable heroine? Is there room for the trash-talking, unconventional, witchy (with a "b") heroine who we'll root for and follow? Is there a double standard, where some "anti-heroes" can get away with being the lovable jerk, but not the gals?

Well, I discuss all this today in a guest post at indie author Khaalidah's blog. Hop on over and take a peek, and don't be shy about sharing your feedback and thoughts.
