Stacey Kennedy's The Cat's Meow Blog Tour

Huge thank you to Mochas, Mysteries and More for letting me stop by today and talk about the Witch’s Brew series.
So, the inspiration for this series came from Libby’s character. I thought it’d be neat to have a female character who hunted for evil by using spells and magic to capture them. That’s really how the idea for the story all began. It was the simple concept that Libby worked for her coven and was responsible to go after warlocks/witches who used Black Magic.
Once I had that foundation, the rest kind of fell into place as I wrote it. You see, I’m not a planner, which typically means I spend a lot of time rewriting my stories. Especially once Kale appeared. His character made me rewrite The Cat’s Meow twice. For those who have read it, the secret that appears at the end of the book of his real identity didn’t show itself to me until I wrote that final fight scene. After I discover who Kale really was, I had to go back and rewrite the story to get his character right.
Now you can probably tell that I have no idea how many books in the series there will be. I learned long ago to not plan anything since my characters always end up taking the control and doing things their way! But in my head, I can picture three books, and maybe even four. All I know is the next book in the series, which I plan to start writing soon, will be very Kale focused. He was just too mysterious in The Cat’s Meow, and I can’t wait to learn more about the sexy warlock!

A good witch always has a kick-ass back-up plan.
Libby is an Enchantress—a witch gifted by the Goddess to conjure spells. When a magical presence is detected around a recent string of feline slayings, Libby takes the case to uncover the reasons behind the odd deaths. Much to her displeasure, the coven also sends a sexy warlock, Kale, to assist her.
While having the muscle around proves to be useful, fighting the attraction between them is worse than a hex, especially considering Kale is keeping secrets. But soon, Libby has bigger problems than the elusive warlock when her spells turn up clues that point to something far more sinister than slaughtered cats.
Now Libby has landed herself in the midst of an uprising. She trusts no one and isn’t safe—not from the warlocks stirring up trouble. Not from the worrisome rebellion she can’t escape. And certainly not from Kale, who is weaving a very dangerous spell over her heart.
Entangled Publishing is generously offering one ebook download to a lucky commenter...contest runs through February 10.
Stacey Kennedy’s novels are lighthearted fantasy with heart-squeezing, thigh-clenching romance, and even give a good chuckle every now and again. But within the stories you’ll also find fast-paced action, life-threatening moments, and a big bad villain who needs to be destroyed. She lives in Southwestern Ontario with her husband and two children. If she’s not plugging away at a new story—which is rare because her muse is annoying—you’ll find her camping, curling up with the latest flick, or obsessing over Sons of Anarchy, Games of Thrones, Supernatural and Dexter.
