GUEST POST & GIVEAWAY: Author Nikki Jefford

Magical Mishaps by Nikki Jefford

Favorite Thing about Magic
The potential for so much to go wrong. I love comedy, and magic IS comedy. It’s also dark, which I like, too: the perfect blend of dark comedy.

Unsuccessful Attempt at Magic
When I was 7, we had to leave Alaska after my mother remarried and spend the next seven years moving around the West Coast. I was in a new school every year and missed the Far North something fierce.

In third grade, I attempted a teleportation spell. It involved a circle of rocks – of which I stood in the center. I was so convinced it was going to work I packed a bag to bring with me.

All-Time Favorite TV Series
Buffy the Vampire Slayer. My favorite episode is “Something Blue” when Buffy and Spike get engaged. Don’t you just love spells gone awry?

Spellbound Series Summed up in Warp Speed
Entangled: Two witches, one body. A resurrection spell gone wrong.
Duplicity: Graylee Perez duplicated. (Like if your brain was copied and stuck inside another body. Freaky, right?)
Enchantment: (Inspired by aforementioned “Something Blue”.) Gray is under a love spell and it’s not with someone she normally likes. 

About the book: 
"Twin witches Graylee and Charlene Perez agree on one rule: No dating warlocks.

Not so easy when a certain rogue warlock is convinced he and Graylee belong together and will use anything, including magic, to try and impress Gray. When Charlene’s boyfriend dumps her, she threatens to kill either herself or the girl who stole Blake. Somehow, Gray ends up dead.

A Resurrection Spell Gone Wrong:

Two months after dying, Gray wakes up in Charlene’s body. As a witch, can anyone blame her mother for attempting to bring her daughter back to life? Only now Gray’s stuck sharing her sister’s body 50/50 in twenty-four hour shifts.

The race is on for Gray to find a way back inside her own body before Charlene purges her from existence. Raj McKenna is rumored to meddle in the black arts, not to mention he’s after Gray’s invisibility spell and worse – her heart. But Raj might be the only one powerful enough to save Gray from fading away forever"

    2. I would like mind reading or teleportation. Either one would work for me.

    3. Love, love, love the ideas behind these books! Sounds like some fun reads.

    4. And for the giveaway: I think I'd like teleportation. Imagine how much time I could save if I could just zap to work and then home again at the end of the day.

    5. I'd like teleportation since I hate driving and would love to be able to travel around the world so quickly! These books sound really awesome too! My email:

    6. Oh this sounds interesting. I'd love to have teleportation. Wouldn't have to deal with the stupid bulling of the TSA. Plus, no way do I want to have mind reading. I rarely like what comes out of some people's mouths... just think of what you are forced to hear from those people.. what they don't say! No thanks. LOL

    7. I'd definitely go with teleportation! It'd just be too awesome to be able to visit anywhere you wanted whenever you wanted.

    8. I would love to read peoples mind. I think that would be great. Great giveaway.


    Thanks so much for taking the time to comment! I really appreciate it!

    Though I appreciate awards I have decided to make my blog an "award-free zone". Unfortunately I do not have the time to hold up my end of award-giving. But again, I appreciate you thinking of me!
