Question:  If paranormal and/or supernatural being exist, should they reveal themselves to the world?

rissatoo who said...

Great question, Q! :)
I'm selfish: I'd want to know if the paranormal/supernatural creatures existed in the world, but I wouldn't want them to be "out". Too many people hate &/or fear the different as it is. We don't need to introduce more into the world.

Deceiving the Witch Next Door by Melissa Bourbon Ramirez.

June M. who said...

I do love the bad boys too. I would love to go out with one of the guys for Larissa Ione's Demonica & Lords of Deliverance series. Especially either Wraith, Ares, or Than.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Tall Dark and Divine (Bagging a Greek God 1) by Jenna Bennett.

Maria pronounced Mariah who said...

As much as I love all the paranormal bad boys I think I would have to pick Roark for an actual "date" that man knows how to take care of a woman!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Take it Like a Vamp by Candace Havens.

books4me who said...

I would want to go out with a bad boy...something new for me so I would choose Eric from True Blood or Wraith from Demonica series (Larissa Ione) or Gregory from Dark series (Christine Feehan).

Winners x 13 - August 25, 2012



Magic Gone Wild (Bottled Magic 3) by Judi Fennell - Ended August 22, 2012 - Read the interview here. US/CANADA ONLY


Winners x 13 - August 25, 2012

Question:  Which real town/city/village should be the basis for setting in a Paranormal Romance novel?

June M. who said...

I think that large cities would be best for paranormal series generally, especially for vampires, demons, witches, etc. Cities like NY, LA, NOLA. This way they can blend in, not have too many people too interested in them like in smaller towns.

But for shifters, I would think that areas with less people, more open space would be best (Alaska, desert areas, places with lots of woodlands, etc) so that they can shift and hunt but not have a lot of witnesses.




Winners x 13 - August 25, 2012


The winners have been notified and have until 11:59PM US Eastern Time on Saturday, September 1, 2012 to respond or The Qwillery will very randomly choose a new winner or winners.

Interview with Judi Fennell and Giveaway - August 15, 2012

Please welcome Judi Fennell to The Qwillery. Magic Gone Wild, the 3rd novel in Judi's Bottled Magic series, was published on August 7, 2012.


Interview with Judi Fennell and Giveaway - August 15, 2012


TQ:  Welcome to The Qwillery!

Judi:  Hi and thanks so much for having me.


TQ:  Writing quirks! What are some of yours?

Judi:  Sadly, I'm kind of boring when it comes to quirks. I need either absolute quiet or a white noise environment. Typically I play classical piano music on my laptop/tablet so that it blocks out the sounds around me and I can't sing along to it. If there's a song that I can sing to, forget it. I'm pulled out of my writing and it takes me a while to get back in. I will say that my family has laughed at me a few times because they'll walk by and see me with my eyes closed and my fingers flying over the keyboard as the story flows out of me. That's got to be the best writing experience.


TQ:  Who are some of your favorite writers?

Judi:   Gosh, where to start? Auto buys for me are Karen Rose, Cindy Gerard, Kate Brady, Jill Barnett and Julia Quinn.


TQ:  Are you a plotter or a panster?

Judi:   Pantser. With selling on proposal, you do learn to put a plot together, even if it's just a basic outline (a lot of "and then stuff happens" in it), but keeping to it can be challenging when the characters are the ones driving the story.


TQ:  What is the most challenging thing for you about writing?

Judi:  Finding enough hours in a day. Of course, that's true about anything in my life, but writing can be really intensive when the story is working and to have to stop and go do something else can be really frustrating.


TQ:  The most recent Bottled Magic novel is Magic Gone Wild. What inspired you to write the Bottled Magic series?

Judi:  I'd started I Dream of Genies, the first in the series, back before I'd sold my Mer series to my publisher. I'd wanted to do something different in the paranormal genre. Something you didn't see a lot of. So I went back to what I love - and I grew up on I Dream of Jeannie and Bewitched. There were already a bunch of witch stories on the market, so I went with the genies. And it's been a ball ever since.


TQ:  Do you base your paranormal/supernatural elements on existing lore, make things up or both?

Judi:  I always try to put as much realism into my fantastical worlds. Makes it easier for the reader to suspend disbelief and get into the world quicker. For instance in my Mer series, I decided that Atlantis had to be under Bermuda. The beauty of that is that Bermuda is known for its underwater caves... what better place to put the capital city of Mers? With Bottled Magic, I pulled on a lot of mythology, as djinn (or genies) come from Persian mythology. I worked that mythology with the pop culture references we're familiar with to create a set of rules and world that worked for the reader and the characters.


TQ:  What sorts of research have you done for the Bottled Magic novels? What is the oddest bit of information that you’ve come across in your research?

Judi:  You know, one of the things that never fails to amaze me is that I've been able to find in the mythology/history exactly what I need for the stories. That's when I know I'm on the right track. For instance, in I Dream of Genies, I needed a beast for the High Master's garden. I wanted something like the Behemoth out of the bible but in a Persian context. I found out that the Hadyosh was exactly what I was looking for. I didn't have to make him up at all, just play with that cultural consciousness to make him work in the story. I've always been a student of mythologies and being able to bring many of them into my stories has been a lot of fun.


TQ:  Tell us something about Magic Gone Wild that is not in the book description.

Judi:  The town Harrisonville is based on: Williamsport, PA. My husband's family is from there and we go up for family reunions. It was the perfect type of town I wanted to use, but without naming it its true name. There, that's the first time I've put this bit of info in print.


TQ:  In the Bottled Magic series who was the easiest character to write and why? The hardest and why?

Judi:  Easiest characters are always the wise-a** sidekicks. In this case, it's Merlin, the gender-curious, cross-dressing phoenix. Most time they come fully formed in my head and I basically channel them; I don't have to think too much about them. I just let him have free reign with the page.

But those characters are also the hardest, specifically because they want to take over the whole story. They have a lot to say about the main characters, and usually their life philosophy, so it's a challenge to keep them contained.


TQ:  Which character in the Bottled Magic series has surprised you the most?

Judi:   Harv, the yale from Genie Knows Best. I knew he was a hard a** and hadn't seen any redeeming qualities to him. When he showed up at the final showdown and got involved to the extent that he did, I hadn't seen that one coming.


TQ:  What's next?

Judi:  I'm excited to have launched my Once-Upon-A-Time Romance series with the first book, Beauty and The Best. It came out in April and it's about a bumbling guardian angel (think It's a Wonderful Life) who will earn his wings by helping the hero and heroine of each story. This story was in the American Title contest (RT Magazine and Dorchester Publishing) and a Top 20 finalist in the gather.com/Simon & Shuster First Chapters contest, where it was the only romance to make the Top 20. Next up in that series is If The Shoe Fits, followed by Fairest of Them All.

I'm also debuting the first in my BeefCake, Inc series at the end of the month: BeefCake & Cupcakes: Magic Mike has nothing on Gage and his guys. Baker shop owner Lara agrees, but what can a hot guy like him see in a woman like her--unless he's only interested in her cupcakes?


TQ:  Thank you for joining us at The Qwillery.

Judi:  Thanks so much for having me!

Authors After Dark Author Spotlight Interview - Judi Fennell

Please welcome Judi Fennell as part of The Qwillery's Authors After Dark Author Spotlight Interviews.

Authors After Dark Author Spotlight Interview - Judi Fennell


TQ:  What inspired you to become a writer?

Judi:  I've always written, from kindergarten all the way through school, so I don't know that I was inspired to write by one specific thing. But I did eventually sit down to write a book that I knew I would try to get published. What inspired that? The voices in my head. :) Seriously, one morning I woke up with an idea for a story. It's a time travel called Through The Leaded Glass and while it is the novel I "cut my teeth on," it has been revised so many times and re-written a few more that I will eventually try to do something with it since it soooooo was not publishable in its original form. Recently, a reader/writer who'd read it in a contest years ago asked me when I'm going to put that story out, so *shrugs, who knows... it might see the light of day yet. But once I wrote that story, my husband found RWA and my local chapter for me and encouraged me to go. After the first meeting, I was inspired enough to write 30K words in a month for another book that I'm hoping will eventually get to see the light of day. So, to answer the question, I'll say that the story idea sparked the write-to-publication thing, and my fellow authors honed and focused that inspiration to get me to where I am today.

TQ:  What is the most challenging thing for you about writing?

Judi:  Chapter 4. :) I have no trouble with Chapters 1-3 and the ending, but I finish Chapter 3 and then look at my computer screen and think, "Okay, now what?" That's when I have to let the story gel for a bit (I am not a plotter), and "listen" to my characters. Sometimes--the great times--they start gabbing and don't shut up and I have to type really really fast to keep up with them. I love when that happens. That is the magic of writing.

TQ:  What writing achievement are you most proud of?

Judi:  The PRISM Award I won for my second book, Wild Blue Under, which was the first one written under contract and under deadline--and under a heck of a lot of revisions. Fixing that manuscript over Christmas in 2008 was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. I put in probably 15 hours a day every day except Christmas and NY Eve to get that finished on time. Then it was nominated for a PRISM Award along with best selling authors. I actually didn't go to the awards ceremony because I knew there was no way it would win. Imagine my surprise when it did!

TQ:  What one thing should everyone know about your writing?

Judi:  That it's like the Shrek movies. They have a layer of humor for the kids, and then there's a whole other layer for the adults. Now, my stories are DEFINITELY for the over 18 crowd (therefore, not kiddie humor), but there's a surface layer of funny and then there's another layer that is masked by the humor that deals with issues like insecurity and trust and self-awareness, plus the magic of finding true love and what that means to the character(s).

TQ:  Please tell us about your latest and upcoming works.

Judi:  My Bottled Magic series came out in 2011 with I Dream of Genies in January, and Genie Knows Best in November. The third book, Magic Gone Wild, hits the shelves in August. Think I Dream of Jeannie meets Indiana Jones, with magic and humor and lots of action. I had such fun living in the magical realm with all its possibilities from gods and goddesses and a talking cat named Obo who tried to steal the entire book from the main characters (Eden & Matt Ewing in I Dream of Genies), to the try-as-hard-as-he-can fennec fox named Dirham who is Kal, the genie's, magical assistance assistant in Genie Knows Best with it's under-the-desert magical city, to the enchanted furniture and dishes and a phoenix named Merlin Pendragon (hey, where do you think we mortals got the idea...) in Magic Gone Wild. Not to mention, of course, the hunky heroes who are just right for the heroines to fall in love with.

TQ:  Thank you for joining us at The Qwillery.

Judi:  Thank you so much for having me. If your readers would like to see excerpts and deleted scenes from the stories, they can check out my website: www.JudiFennell.com

About Judi

Authors After Dark Author Spotlight Interview - Judi Fennell
Judi Fennell has had her nose in a book and her head in some celestial realm all her life, including those early years when her mom would exhort her to “get outside!” instead of watching Bewitched or I Dream of Jeannie on television. So she did--right into Dad’s hammock with her Nancy Drew books. These days she’s more likely to have her nose in her laptop and her head (and the rest of her body) at her favorite bookstore, but she’s still reading, whether it be her latest manuscript or friends’ books. A three-time finalist in online contests, Judi has enjoyed the reader feedback she’s received and would love to hear what you think about her Mer series. Check out her website at www.JudiFennell.com for excerpts, reviews and fun pictures from reader and writer conferences, and the chance to “dive in” to her stories.
