Tuesday Guest Post: Stacey Kennedy
I’m so excited to join in on the fun over here at Haunted Dreams, Dark Destinies. So, I ask...can darkness, action and mystery have humor as well? I say, hell yes!!
When I started my journey as an author, I always knew I wanted to write a novel that was intense and dramatic. But at the same time, I wanted a light edge that at times had you laughing. THE WILLOW, the first novel in THE MAGICAL SWORD series was a hoot to write. Not only did I find myself chuckling along, but was just as captivated by the romance, the danger and even the gloom.
The main character, Nexi, doesn’t have an easy life. She is alone, in a world she never felt like she belonged to. The beginning is emotional as Nexi gives up on life. The journey quickly sweeps you away as she finds herself not in Heaven, but in the Otherworld. It’s a tale of her discovering the secrets of her past, learning she is part Guardian/part Witch, and experiencing her life coming full circle while she finds love and kicks some serious ass along the way.
Nexi’s story grabbed me enough that I ended up writing four novels in THE MAGICAL SWORD series. The second novel, THE WICKED, was released in August and continues Nexi’s adventures focusing more on her magical abilities. The third, THE DEVIL’S KISS is scheduled for release later this month, and the fourth, THE FIRST AND THE LAST will be released in November.
