Me: Good to have you with us, Ms. Spellman. That’s an awesome polka dot dress you have on.
MS: Thank you, you can never go wrong with polka dots. But please, call me Marcy. I’m not one for formality.
Me: I understand you have a pretty unconventional job. Can you tell us about it?
MS: I’m a witch. A garden variety of witch. I own a witchcraft shop called Polka Dots and Eye of Newt just down main street in town. You should visit. I have just the thing for your droopy aura.
Me: My aura is droopy? Never mind that–I wanted to ask you a very important question.
MS: Go right ahead. I’ll try to answer it the best I can. (she stares at me with her big, smoky blue eyes)
Me: Why should I buy Blind Magic when there are so many other awesome romance books out there?
MS: Who told you Blind Magic was a romance? (she giggles) Just kidding… not totally though. It has so much more than just romance. There is mystery and intrigue, drama and heart-wrenching emotion. You gotta read it.
Me: Do you cast many spells in the book?
MS: I’m not that kind of witch. I help people in different ways, but I don’t have a cauldron or anything. (she stares bashfully at her polka dot high-heels)
Me: But didn’t you meet your man because of a magic potion?
MS: Hardly a magic potion. It was a simple tea, that’s all. A very efficient one by the way.
Me: Come on, fess up! You do cast a love spell in the story, don’t you?
MS: (blushing furiously) Yes, I confess. I did something very unethical for a witch: I concocted a love spell for myself. The thing is, I fell hard for Oliver right away. I could feel the connection between us as soon as I laid eyes on him. I couldn’t resist the temptation .
Me: Your face just opens up when you talk about Oliver. Tell me a little about him then.
MS: Oliver Dawson… there are no words to describe him. He’s my heart, my soul, that piece of me I didn’t know I was missing until I met him. He’s also handsome and sweet and has the most gorgeous blue eyes you can ever imagine. I go all gooey inside when I look at him.
Me: Last question for you. Hypothetically speaking, if I was to put a love spell together for me what ingredients would I need?
MS: (looking vaguely suspicious) Are you trying to trick me? (she relaxes) Rose petals and lavender. I’d throw an amethyst in there for protection and healing. You can never go wrong with amethyst.
Me: You drink that?
MS: Of course not, silly. You have to perform a little ritual with it. You really should read Blind Magic and find out (she winks at me again). I have to go now. My store is unmanned.
Me: Are you telling me you left the store open and alone? Aren’t you afraid of being robbed?
MS: (laughing) Who would steal a bunch of rocks, candles and teas? Besides I have a protection shield going while I’m gone. No worries. (her bright red hair bounces around her head as she nods)
Me: Thank you, Marcy, for coming and talking to us. A pleasure, as always.
MS: Well? Are you going to buy the book?
Me: I wrote it, so– (she gives me the evil eye) Okay, I will. I will most definitely buy the book. (she smiles) Be sure to tune in again later this month when we interview more characters from Blind Magic, releasing November 18 and available for pre-order right now. Thank you, Marcy.
P.S. Marcy just informed me that if you have any questions for her, she will be more than happy to answer them. Leave your questions in the comments. Thank you.
