Witch’s Night Out

Even witches need to unwind, which is why Stasi, Blair, Jazz and ghostly Irma are vegging out in Stasi and Blair’s family room. Scented candles are scattered throughout the room, Van Helsing is on TV since they need that Hugh Jackman fix and, bottles of wine dot the coffee table, and any form of junk food you can imagine is within reach.

The witches are wearing their form of loungewear that involves pajama pants and t-shirts while Irma is wrapped in a plush robe and netting wrapped around her hair to hide her pincurls.

“Okay, this is has been the absolute worst Samhain in history,” Stasi sighed, rummaging through the bowl of snack size candy bars until she found a Snickers bar.

“Oh I don’t know, there’s been a few that come to mind. What about 1723? So not a good year.” Jazz batted at Fluff and Puff who were too close to her stash of See’s Bordeaux chocolates. “Do not even think about it,” she warned them. “This has been more than totally weird, but we’re here in one piece, aren’t we? And Stasi’s got a totally sexy wizard in her life.” She grinned at the red hearts that seemed to enjoy dancing around Stasi’s head. ‘And look at you with your hearts and Trev having hearts too. Good thing humans can’t see them. No way we could explain those away.”

“Terrific, everyone’s having sex but me!” Blair wailed, sniffing as she ate a Hostess cupcake.

“Excuse me, but it’s been some time for me too,” Irma reminded her, staring mournfully at the wine and a box of HoHos on the table. Since food didn’t stay inside ghosts’ stomachs, Irma could only look and not touch. “I don’t understand how you all can eat like this after what’s happened?”

“Precisely why we can eat.” Stasi stole one of Jazz’s precious chocolates and grinned at her friend as she bit into the brown sugar cream. “We knew that Mercury retrograde along with a lunar eclipse on Samhain would cause problems, but considering everything else that went on, it’s amazing we, and the town, are in one piece. Of course, there’s so much snow out there, that I feel like we’re living in a snow cave and power outages haven’t been all that much fun either. A normal life would be good.”

“And maybe we won’t be called witch as if it’s a bad thing,” Blair chimed in.

“And you have a sexy wizard in your life now. With luck the lawsuit won’t continue and now maybe the lake will have a chance of recovering from that nasty magick blasted at it,” Jazz said, conjuring up a bottle of nail polish and repairing her chipped manicure. “Once again, we’ve shown our stuff and do we rock or what?” She grinned at her friends who she’s known for over 700 years.

Stasi’s smile said it all. “Yes, I do. Witches rule.” They exchanged high fives that fairly sparkled with their combined power.

What about you when you’re spending a girls night out? Do you worry about big bads coming up with nasty magick?

There’s a video teaser of me over at YouTube!


Linda will give away a copy of Wicked By Any Other Name to one commenter. The winner will be selected and posted here on Tuesday evening.

This sounds really good and I really do not have too much to worry about because I cannot remember the last time I had a girl's night out.

This sounds like a very interesting book. I also don't have much to worry about since it has been at least 11 years for me having a girls night out. If I did have a girls night out, I wouldn't worry about big bads coming up with nasty magic.

Thanks all!

And I think we all need a girls night out. Some of the ones I've had have been "interesting" including a Marie Callendar's closing permanently the day after a bunch of us were there the night before and nothing was hinted it was happening.

I can't remember my last girl's night out, but this sounds fun. I may have to try and resurrect the tradition. :-)

Hey Ms. Lynda, thanks for having Ms. Linda on the blog today!
You can definitely count me in on this one!! I love the cover!

And yes, witched rule!!
My last girls night out... about 2 yrs ago. One of my friends turned 21 and we took her out to New Orleans. We stayed out until 5:30 the next morning... guess I didnt have to worry about big bads and nasty magic... not with 4 girls on the loose! LOL

The book sounds great! I am always glad to add another author to my list!!

First of all, what a great blog! I just discovered it today. Love the name "Paranormality"! Faboo!

Linda, this book sounds like an absolute riot. My 8 year old and I just started a little pretend fun "spell book" to help us cope with all the challenges in life. We try to come up with all rhyming spells. It is a blast for her.

As a big fan of the show Charmed, I always enjoy a witch story. I will definitely check this one out.

Thanks for chatting with us today. I need something fun on a Monday!

What I can tell all of you is that this series consists of the books of my heart. I feel I've been writing all these years as a lead up to Jazz and her fellow witches.

Yea Linda, I guess your right... but maybe not the nasty magic!! Because we sure did have a blast that night! I just say that maybe the drinks were magical!

This sounds like a great book! I had a small girl's night a few weeks ago and it was great to hang out and relax with friends I hadn't seen much of for a few months.

And think what it's like for witches who've known each other for over 700 years. Talk about some wild girls nights out!

Hey Linda - See me waving? We have girl's lunches out, but we don't skimp on the fun due to the daylight. And we've been known to cast a few spells, ourselves, if the service at luch isn't so good. hehehe.

Hi Linda!! Love these witches!

Gosh I haven't had a ladies nite out in forever! I remember tho when I could before the kids came and playing scrabble for hours and laughing about making up words! And talking the night away and more!

Thanks for the peek into this one! Would love to be in the contest! Thanks.

Linda, what a fun post!

I love your series, and would love to be in on that girls night out! Mine consist of a weekly dinner with one friend, then hitting B&N for some books. Can't go wrong there!

And then there are those special times at conferences when I get to cut up with more girls, a few drinks, and a lot of laughter! :) Good thing one of those times is coming!

Hi Caffey!

It seems I have more girls day out than girls night out, but we still have fun and that's what matters.
