The Trouble with Spell Blog Tour Grand Finale!!!

Welcome, welcome, to the to The Trouble with Spells Blog Tour Grand Finale!  (Throws confetti!)

First off, I just want to say THANK YOU, to all the wonderful bloggers who hosted this tour, to the Belinda at The Bookish Snob Promotions for putting such a fun, fabulous tour together, and to all of the fantastic followers I've met along the way!  I've truly had an amazing time getting to visit with all of you, and I find myself feeling sad to break those connections.  I hope you will come join the new book club Belinda and I have created on facebook, Vance Fan Inc., so we can continue sharing our love of books, (and Vance) together!

So by now you have gathered the highlighted words from throughout the tour to build your phrase to enter the Kindle giveaway!  If you have them all correctly, you will see that this built a phrase from book two in the series, The Demon Kiss.  This book will be going on a week long tour that will begin on May 15th.  If you are interested in hosting a day on this tour, you can contact Belinda at The Bookish Snob Promotions for more information.  To whet your appetite a little more for this tour, here's an excerpt from The Demon Kiss:

“Don’t you get it?” he asked me softly, his blue eyes streaked with shots of red in them staring deep into my soul. “I want all of you. I crave all of you. My body is demanding to have all of you, and my emotions are always right behind them. I’m always teetering on the brink of disaster. One second, I just want to sink my teeth into you; the next, I want to throw you down and have my way with you. It hurts to be away from you, but I think it might hurt more to be with you. If I slipped, just once, and did something bad to you, I’d never be able to forgive myself. I’ve gone too far already. That is why we’re in this mess.”
He stood up and paced away from me over to the opposite wall, which he slammed hard with his fist, causing me to jump as cracks appeared in the thick block, and I wondered if he had broken every bone in his hand.
“What do I do, Portia?” he asked quietly, without turning, hanging his head in frustration. “I’m completely out of control.”

I hope you will join us again for this blog tour!  The Grand Prize winner for The Demon Kiss tour will win swag, signed copies of books 1, 2, 3, AND FOUR, and will be written into a scene WITH VANCE in book four also!  How's that for a grand prize??

Vance Mangum's Athame

Have you ever wondered what Vance's athame might look like?  Well here you go, courtesy of
I was so excited when Laramie came to me and said he was going to make a knife to go with my books.  He said he'd found a special piece of metal that he wanted to use for it and he set out to make a custom design for me.  I knew he did great work because I've had the opportunity to see some of his other show pieces.  They tend to get bought for a LOT of money!  One of the interesting things about Laramie's work is that he often recycles materials to work with.  He does some scouting and hiking about in the woods and comes up with old deer antlers to use as handles or interesting pieces of wood, like the knot this knife is resting on.
So can you tell what's recycled on this knife?
If you guessed the blade, then you would be correct.  The blade for this knife was made from a very old, rusty chainsaw blade which helps to give it that lovely patina.  I think Laramie tagged Vance's style right on since Vance likes to take things that are vintage and upgrade them to something new, like he does with his motorcycle.
So, thank you Laramie for the awesome athame!  I love it and I will display it proudly.


You can click the link above to visit Laramie's facebook page and see a bit of his other work! :D
Did I mention he makes lightsabers too?

Or that he wins contests dressed as Darth Maul?
