Joke of the day:

Question: How do you make a witch scratch?
Answer: Take away her “W”

It’s the first day of the Cyber Launch Party for BLOOD MAGIC, the first book in a new paranormal series. Romantic Times Book Club summed up the book as: “Witchcraft, magic and dark curses take on a new twist in Lyon’s action-packed series launch.” They also gave the book a 4 ½ HOT, which is awesome!


To celebrate the launch, I’m giving away prizes here on the blog! For five weeks from January 19th through February 20th. Each weekend, I will randomly draw one winner’s name from that week’s comments and announce the winner on the blog. The winner will then need to email me at with the info to mail the prize to them.


The prizes will be:

  • Week One (January 19-23) $20.00 gift card to Barnes & Noble
  • Week Two (January 26-30) Candle set with $15.00 Starbucks Card
  • Week Three (February 2-6) Peace, Hope and Serenity Bracelet
  • Week Four (February 9-13) Box of Paranormal Books
  • Week Five (February 16-20) CHARMED; Season Three DVD Set

Then, on the official release date of BLOOD MAGIC, February 24th, I will draw one name from ALL the comments over the five weeks for the Grand Prize!




A Celtic Knot Centerpiece Necklace with a Rainbow Moonstone! The gemstone shown here is a Labradorite, but the one in the necklace I’m giving away is a Rainbow Moonstone. This picture isn’t very good, but you can see it here where I bought the necklace:



I’m really excited about this necklace as a grand prize. In BLOOD MAGIC, the heroine, Darcy MacAlister, wears a necklace just like it, only without the gemstone. Darcy has no idea she’s a witch, and in fact, she didn’t even know witches existed. But as the danger rises and Darcy must discover who she is, the necklace plays an important role.


I ordered a necklace for myself too!


So come in and join the fun! For today’s comments, tell me your favorite paranormal book or author. Or are you like me, and unable to ever pick a favorite?

    So many authors to choose from! I have two bookcases filled with nothing but paranormals and I’m always looking for new books/series to sink my teeth into. I definitely have 2/24 marked on my calendar. That’s right before my birthday so I’ve added Blood Magic to my wish list. :D

    Quilt Lady, the title BLOOD MOON seems awfully familiar, but I don’t think I’ve read it yet. I’ll have to look.

    Wendy, I love Katie MacAlister too, she’s a hoot!

    Anne, another book I haven’t read. My “buy” list is growing today!

    Hi Jen! Great new website! Very hot! I’m so excited about your 4.5 RT stars and can’t wait to read BLOOD MAGIC!!

    One of my very favorite paranormal authors is Maureen Child. I love her new FAE Warrior series and I’m in awe at her ability to combine incredibly sexy characters with such hilarious dialogue, and did I mention incredibly sexy characters? Yeah! :-)

    Hi Jenn,
    You won’t find “Black Body” on a bookstore shelf unless it’s a used bookstore. Or you’ll find it listed on used book sites. It’s the best book about witches I’ve ever read. Please let me know if you find it. Thanks.

    RachaelfromNJ, sounds like a good series!

    Mel K, Okay, thanks Mel, I’ll look around. You know, used bookstores are become more and more rare, it seems. That makes it harder to find the out of print books!
