Guest blog and Giveaway with Cherrie Mack

Hi. I’m Cherrie Mack, author of A Late Summer Bloom the first in the Witches of the Bayou series. Thank you for hosting me today and sharing your readers with me.

I love to write romance. So much so, that I’ve written across sub-genre. Some say this is a rule breaker. You cannot build an audience as an author by jumping around. I happen to agree with this philosophy, however, as a new author I also feel it is important to write what’s in your heart. And by following my heart, I’ve written contemporary, comedy, fantasy, and suspense. But, my latest venture into the paranormal has given me a new direction. I love reading paranormal and so it made sense that I would love writing it just as much. I was right. When I wrote, A late Summer Bloom, it felt good. I felt at home.

I’ve found readers of the paranormal are a special breed. We are voracious book lovers who would love to live in the world of our favorite authors—even for a day. So, it made sense for me to put my version of the paranormal out there for readers. Witches always fascinated me and this is where I began. A trip to New Orleans and the Bayou stoked my imagination. As the Witches of the Bayou unfolded, characters stepped forward, some polite and humble, others cruel and mocking. I realized my fake world very much mimicked our own. And the decision to create a series was made for me. I can’t wait to deliver an even better book two.   

As reader, what paranormal world do you like most? Do you tend to go more sci-fi? And what kind of supernatural character do you prefer? Vampire? Werewolf? Shifter? 

Mythology? What stokes your paranormal desire?  For me, I like to be more on my home turf—supernatural  creatures mingling with us humans always gets my attention. What grabs you?

Book Description:

A young witch, destined to be queen. A traveler destined to love her and an evil warlock desperate to claim her.

When Julien Beaumont meets Giselle Jareau, the naïve, young witch is nothing more than a nuisance. A mere inconvenience. But the inkblot on his arm disagrees. As their relationship develops, his tattoo begins to fill in. Could it be fate or something more sinister?

On an old, decrepit sugar plantation, in the heart of the Louisiana Bayou, the defender of the covens and the queen to the royals engage in a battle of wits. And as Giselle falls in love, Julien tries desperately to change the course of their destiny.

About the Author:

Cherrie Mack grew up in Flushing Queens NY, the youngest child of six. The city’s diversity gave her a great appreciation for many different cultures and lifestyles. After love finally claimed the girl from the city and dragged her to the suburban madness of Long Island, she settled into a quiet life with her new husband. Two children and one mini-van later, the family found themselves moving towards the sunny skies of Florida where they currently reside. With her focus still very much on her family, Cherrie squeezes in time to write. The publication of her debut novel, Ache of Desire has given her the confidence to allow her to spend more time writing.

One year and four books later, Cherrie has continued to flourish. With multiple series in the works, there’s no slowing down for this up and coming author.

A member of Romance Writers of America, Cherrie is slowly spreading her wings as a romance author. Look for her books at all digital bookstores such as Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Bookstrand, ITunes, Nook and many more.
