Summary

Detective Paige Whiskey comes from a long line of witches. They may not all be the most powerful, but they are outspoken and supportive of their community. She alone has no gifts. She can’t summon fire, can’t read minds. She knows the arcane. She’s studied it. That, along with her connection to the Whiskey Witches, lands her some pretty strange cases.

Like the sacrificial murders of St. Francisville, Louisiana. There’s a killer on the loose, choosing people in a vain attempt to raise a demon. Not just any demon, though. A man born long ago, made a demon in order to protect the Gate to Hell.

Together with demon hunter, Dexx Colt, her kitchen-witch grandmother, and her paranormal investigator brother-in-law, they unravel a conspiracy far bigger than a few simple murders, and re-discover Paige’s gift.

She’s a demon summoner and she’s key to the killer’s plan.

Mama’s Thoughts:
Wow! Whiskey Witches has it all- if you are a die hard mystery fan or paranormal lover, you will be entranced by this magickal series!   I totally fell for Paige, her sense of humor really appealed to me and the fact that even when some serious shenanigans go down, she stays true to herself, even though she has to take a chance to figure out who that is.  SM Bloodling captured my imagination and kept me engaged the entire time I read the 4 episodes in this set, and made me just about lose my breath when I clicked over to the last page and episode 5 had yet to be loaded!  4.5 stars for this free arc review copy of one fabulous book!

Cover Artist: Frankie’s Mind Design

Summary

5.4 Blood Moon MagickGoing back to Denver should have been easy. Old life. Old routine. Ten kinds of “all good.”

However, with her gifts open, the paranormal world isn’t going to let her have that easy life. It turns out her partner of the last five years is a vampire and has been for several decades. He’s also the regional paranormal protector.

So when a few shapeshifters go missing, he gets the case.

But there’s also a demon killing those shapeshifters, a demon she can’t hunt because she’s still an open target for possession.

Not to complicate matters, Dexx isn’t about to let Paige out of his sights. Bringing a demon hunter to a shapeshifter party only makes things that much more interesting. But when he gets bitten, the entire game changes.

Author Bio:

S.M.BloodingS.M. Blooding lives in Colorado with her pet rock, Rockie, and her two birds, Jack and Moose. She’s currently up to her to ears in yarn and crochet projects as she’s just discovered one in seventy-five stitches that she didn’t know. Oh, the horror.

Her real name is Stephanie Marie (aka SM), but only family and coworkers call her that, usually when they’re screaming at her. Friends call her Frankie.

Frankie challenges the world around her. She served in the military as one of the first female tactical air traffic controllers, worked at a coal mine, and shot herself through school to become a CAD (computer aided drafter) operator. She’s worked as a stenographer, a lab technician for a scientist attached with NOAA, and traveled with the Renaissance Festival. She’s survived hurricanes in a tent, and ditches in winter. She’s sometimes crass, often crude, and almost always blunt.

She’s dated vampires, werewolves, sorcerers, weapons smugglers and US Government assassins. Yes. She has stories.

She loves to take the real world, find a singular line of truth, and wrap a complex fiction of reality around it. She’s incredibly excited to share her world with you, and there’s a wide selection to choose from.

She’s also an investigator with a local paranormal investigation group, Colorado Paranormal Rescue!

SM Bloodling’s Favorite Mythologies:

I like all of the mythologies, but my particular favorite are the Native American mythologies. I love them. They seem rooted in some sort of realism, more so than some of the others. Thats not to say I believe we were born from the mouth of a crow, or ride the back of a turtle, but symbolically? Maybe.

Thats where several of my paranormal people come from; shapeshifters, water wraiths, tree women, and the like. Not werewolves, banshees, and dryads. Similar, but not the same.

The shapeshifters play a large part of Blood Moon Magick. There are a lot of shapeshifter mythologies. For the most part, I think, we see a lot of the Celtic shapeshifter lore in most paranormal fictions. Its a great one to play with! Lots of angst, lots of drama, lots of sexy hotness! Oh, yeah.

The Native Americans have shapeshifter lore, as well. Each tribe had their own mythos, but the one that called to me was the shape that chose itself.

The most common Native American mythos comes from the Navajo. They called their shifters skinwalkers, but they believed their skinwalkers were evil, and that they had a black tongue to show their evil soul. They were created when someone did something horribly, inexplicitly wrong. I think the reason this mythos became so popular is because if the skinwalker looks you in the eye, it becomes you. Wouldnt that make a neat story? It might. You just never know.

However, most of the mythos Im familiar with, the ones I grew up with, were about the human becoming one with the animal. There, the animal spirit would become a guide, offering advise that only they could give, giving the human host insight they could not obtain.

My shapeshifters in Blood Moon Magick travel this path. If an alpha bites you (taken from the Celtic mythos), the animal spirit is invited into your body. The spirit can offer assistance in healing the wound, or can leave you alone. If the spirit heals your wounds, then you and the animal spirit have to determine if you are compatible with one another, and which animal you would bond with the best.

Ive always imagined myself with an animal spirit, but I can never decide which animal spirit I would bond to. Would it be a bear? A wolf? An eagle? A mountain lion, maybe? I turtle? I hope not. Good grief.  But . . . I wonder. If I were bitten, what spirit would merge with mine?
