To celebrate, she's hosting a Darkspell Launch Spookfesta! I signed up to be one of her "minions" (how cute is that?) and help get the word out about this talented lady. The topic for her Spookfesta is "If I had all the magic in the world, I'd..." so here goes!
If I had all the magic in the world, I would take away the misfortune and unhappiness of others by listening to their woes. As they would speak to me, their burden would grow lighter and their outlook would grow brighter. They would see a way out from under the stress and strain, a way to depart from the depression and abuse, a way to cling to hope and faith. By telling their story, by truly admitting to their pain and heartache, and seeking help with a pure motivation, they would end up healing themselves.
In a perfect, magic-filled world, that it.
Can you tell a therapist might want this power? Whew. Work myself out of a job, I would.
Anyway, here's a bit about Elizabeth's book:
Winter Sky believes she is everything ordinary . . .until she is kissed by Alex Stormhold.
As seer of Stormhold Coven, Alex is sworn to be Winter’s protector against the darkness that hunts her. Violently thrust into a magical realm she always thought impossible, she stumbles upon a disturbing secret of her own.
Will love prove thicker than magic?
So a different twist on paranormal! You can read the first chapter here.
Elizabeth did all the artwork in the book herself, too. She spent over 150 hours illustrating her novel to bring the reader deeper into the story. (I wonder if any studies have been done on how readers like this? I imagine that the psychological impact is higher, for one, as well as the reader connection with the characters. Just a therapeutic aside...)

Q4U: If you had all the magic in the world, what would you do?
