Guest Post: Charm Me Again by Tena Stetler

My guest today is Tena Stetler talking about: Charm Me Again




Tell us a little about yourself. 

I have an overactive imagination that has always gotten me into trouble. LOL.  As a child the imagination turned into night frights which terrorized my parents. As soon as I learned to channel that imagination in the form of writing my stories on paper, the night frights subsided or at least were manageable. It’s been several years since I’ve had one, but they seem to raise their ugly head at the most inopportune times. Like during a camping trip with my husband. My terror screaming awoke him and the campground. I had some ‘splaning to do the next morning.  I’m a by-the-seat-of-my-pants writer so I never know where my characters are going to take me.  I avoid living in reality as often as possible.

What do like the most and the least about writing?
What I like about being a writer living in a fantasy world that I create. I love being able to whisk people away from their ordinary world into a romantic, fantasy adventure that they will never want to leave.  Everyone needs a little fantasy in their life. Don’t you think?
What I like least about being a writer is the promotion it takes away from my writing time. But it is a necessary component to becoming a successful author.

Give us a peek into your latest published work?

Breaking the curse is only the first step to forever. 

For several months a Scottish Highland Ghost has haunted Daylan, in his personal life, his professional life and at his forge. Yet, being a talented warlock, he is no closer to discovering what the ghost wants or why he chose Daylan. A trip to Colorado may have unforeseen consequences especially when family history leads him to a shocking discovery. 

As his attraction blooms for Josie, a yoga instructor in his sister’s studio, he realizes there may be more to Josie than he can imagine. When an ancient rogue Fae Warrior set on revenge kidnaps her in an attempt to claim her as his own, a devastating curse comes to light.

Daylan’s world spirals out of control as he searches for Josie. Can he break the age old curse to save her and their future, or will she be lost to him forever?

What’s next on the writing horizon for you?

I’m writing the third book in A Witch’s Journey. It was my nano project. I have only a couple more chapters to write, polish the manuscript and off to my editor. Then I’m considering  writing  a short story for One Scoop or Two the new series from The Wild Rose Press.  Crafting a short story for me is a challenge. I’ve done it twice, Charm Me and Mystic Maples. Both time’s it was rough to keep it to the word count required. Both books were quite popular.  

Also working on the sixth book in A Demon’s Witch Series and a brand new cozy mystery series.

Is there anything you want to tell readers?
I am so very thankful for my readers. I know they are going to love Charm Me Again. Catching up with Summer and Devlin from Charm Me and learning about Josie and Daylan will keep ‘em on the edges of their seats!

Excerpt:

Suddenly the wind increased and changed direction bringing a cold chill to the warm day. She tugged her sweater close around her as a thin maroon line formed along the flat bottom of a dark, boiling cloud spreading across the sky. Moments before there’d been only an occasional fluffy white cloud floating in the bright blue sky. Oh, no, not again.

The line slowly drifted to vertical and spread open to reveal a sparkling interior. Four striking creatures, sharp-angled features with fierce expressions on their inhumanly handsome faces appeared. Gleaming swords hung at their sides as they slipped out of the cloud and stepped onto the ground not more than fifty feet from her and Daylan along the tree line of the property. Holy shit. This can’t be happening.

She rubbed her eyes but when she opened them the men were still there. Dressed in heavy boots, jeans, and formfitting leather vests, shimmering silver bands adorned their muscular upper arms. Two of them had thick shoulder length blond hair, the others had jet black hair hanging in waves past their shoulders.

She jumped up and opened her mouth to scream. But Daylan reacted faster clapping his hand over her mouth while still facing the advancing creatures. To her surprise, a soft giggle escaped from her lips. They look like a group of medieval bikers. Their apparent leader, his reddish sable hair hung well beyond his shoulders in waves, paused a few yards in front of them.
