Happy Halloween!!!

I HEART Halloween with all my might. It's my favorite holiday. Granted, I adore Christmas and Easter for very personal reasons. And Thanksgiving is just yummy. But I am a creepy, gory, spooky--and sometimes a bit witchy--girl at my core. I'm all about the goth look, minus too many piercings. A few I can do. 

Today I'm excited to be a part of a fab book blog tour, celebrating the release of DARKSPELL: Elizabeth Mueller's debut novel.

Winter Sky believes she is everything ordinary . . .until she is kissed by Alex Stormhold.
As seer of Stormhold Coven, Alex is sworn to be Winter’s protector against the darkness that hunts her. Violently thrust into a magical realm she always thought impossible, she stumbles upon a disturbing secret of her own.

Will love prove thicker than magic?

A question was posed to each participant: If I had all the magic in the world, I'd... 

As I pondered what I would do, obvious world cures came to mind: peace on Earth, end famine, eliminate discrimination, and obliterate bullying. But I've decided to keep my answer true to a book release, true to our literary world.

If I had all the magic in the world, I'd make enough room for all books--makes, shapes, colors, ideas, and ideals. I'd devise a formula, where the querying system was less hectic/stressful for both writer and agent. Creating a system where publishers could take one glance at a manuscript or pitch idea and magically pull from it what works for them and why, leaving the writer with solid reasons for editing and a stronger published book in the end. With the blink of my eye, libraries would be available to each child. AND I mean real, tangible libraries that one can touch and be consumed by the scent of old books. The thoughts and stories of every author would permeate in the air, slowly drifting into our subconscious.

So there you have it. My literary magic.
