Guest post and giveaway with author Stacey Thompson-Geer and Stevie Trinity, Dark Magick tour
I'm so happy to welcome Stacey Thompson-Geer and Stevie Trinity to the blog today. they are stopping on their Dark Magick tour and she's going to tell us about herself and The Characters Of Dark Magick.
Dark Magick is the first book in The Gatekeeper series and it was published June 17th 2011.
Feel free to post any comments and/or questions you have for Stacey Thompson-Geer and/or Stevie Trinity in the comments.
Stacey is a wife and mother of three. She started writing in High School with horror short stories. One of her first is now published through the kindle - Silver Bullet. When she's not dreaming up her next story or novel, she can be found hanging out with her kids or reading one of her favorite authors. She is also an avid Facebooker and Twitter user. Stop by her website to see what she's working on and any of her backlist work.
Stevie lives in Wyoming with her family. She loves the wide open space There is nothing better than sitting out on the prairie looking out at the stars, or driving less than an hour to the Mountains and climbing trees, and yes she still climbs trees! :)
Stevie started to write short stories when she was 12. She loves poetry and started to write poems when she was 13. She then stopped writing in her early 20s, due to raising a family and focusing her attention elsewhere. When she was 30 she started to write again.
A couple of years later the Gatekeeper series emerged. She and her co author spent many hours talking about and discussing the world they created. Stacey really encouraged Stevie to write again.
Currently Stevie is working on a historical romance about the old west in a time of amazing change! She is also working on the second book to the Gatekeeper Series.
The Characters Of Dark Magick
This really is a character driven story. You learn about their motivations and what makes them tick as people. I think this really helps the story to develop and the people in the world seem more real and fun within something hard and dark.
Lynn is the fighter of the story. She feels like it's her duty to take care of the survivors and the people she loves. While she risks her life at every turn, she makes it clear she doesn't want some of the others to do the same. She comes off as a hard person, but when you get down further, you see the motives behind the way she acts and the choices she makes.
Lynn has a past and it does come back to haunt her. She has to navigate this new scary world while trying to stay away from these parts of her past, but she may have to face them.
Rhea is more than she appears. She heals the wounded and is a mother, but she also has a dark past that she has to deal with. These secrets could unravel the balance her and Lynn have together. She knows this and tries to fights against it.
He is a supporting character with a bigger part to play as we get into the series. He's a smart ass, but under that, he cares about the people he helps. Raiden is a loyal friend and great fighter, but he also has secrets that could tear the friendship he has with Lynn apart.
These are just a few of the characters that make up the Gatekeeper's world. They make mistakes and learn from them as they are pushed to the limits of themselves. I fell in love with them and hope you will too. :)
Thank you so much Stacey and Stevie for stopping by here today it was a great pleasure and your book looks amazing, I can't wait to read it.
The world has changed, we have changed. The world we once knew has fallen away and left us in a wasteland of Magick. Powerful witches and underworld gods control our lives. The past comes back in ways we are not prepared for. The Gatekeepers are our only hope. The question is if we can get to them first.
