Stacey Kennedy joins me today to talk about her upcoming release, First and Last, Magical Sword book four. If you haven’t yet had a chance to check out this series, I highly reccomend it. 😀 So without further ado I turn it over to Stacey.
Kick-ass heroines or a real woman…can you have both?
Hi All! First let me thank Virginia for letting me stop by to chat with all. *waves at Virginia*. Anyhoo, today I’m going to talk about heroines. When I began The Magical Sword Series, I wanted to create a heroine that was completely kick-ass, but at the same time real. Impossible task? In fact, it wasn’t.
The heroine in The Magical Sword series is Nexi. A woman that has come from a difficult past and her future isn’t looking any better either. But that’s what made her so fun to write. As most of us do, she uses emotions to get through the tough times. And that’s what made her so real to me. Yes, she is sassy, tough when she needs to be and doesn’t put up with any bull. But she deals with situations in an emotional way by using humour, anger, and a smart mouth.
Sometimes she laughs, other times she throws hissy fits, and sometimes she completely losses it, which is exactly how most of us would be in the situations she finds herself. I wanted to make a character that as a reader you could relate to―one that cried when the situation called for and got angry instead of holding it in.
Nexi’s series is now wrapped up, with the final book coming out on January 24, 2011. I can honestly say that she was one of the funniest heroines I’ve ever written and I will miss being inside of her head. Luckily, I’ve just complete the spin-off series, The Enchanted Sight, which brings Nexi back as a secondary character, so I don’t have to let her go completely.
If this sounds like a character you would enjoy, why not give The Magical Series a try. Here’s the final novel in the series.
FIRST AND LAST
The Magical Sword ~ Book Four
Liquid Silver Books ~ January 24, 2011
One woman, one bond, one final battle … can even Nexi Jones defeat the deepest darkness of evil?
Meet Nexi Jones—Witch, Guardian and now, Lady of the Underworld. Embracing her new role, Nexi begins the task of changing a world led by darkness. But not everyone is happy to see her rise to power. Before long, a resistance within the Underworld is forming.
As the darkness begins to close in around her, Nexi’s magical abilities flourish in response—forcing Nexi to dig down deeper into her past to discover this source and why she was gifted with such incredible strength.
With her Guardian, Kyden by her side, Nexi will meet her greatest challenge yet as she begins to discover that fate might have been a bitch, but she was a bitch with a plan.
