Book Review: Magick Weaved On A Samhain Eve by VJ Chisholm

Title: Magick Weaved On A Samhain Eve
Author: VJ Chisholm
Publisher: Vamptasy Publishing
Reviewer: Jennifer Andrew



Alexia was feeling awkward about having to tell the rest of the women in her coven how inactive she was in the intimacy dept. and she was hoping things would change soon. She was a picky woman but why shouldn’t she be? The last thing Alexia wanted was to be someone’s play toy. She had a gift of turning men on and leaving them craving her touch but couldn’t she have a meaningful and flirtatious relationship with a man who meant more to her than a frivolous sexual affair?

The story plays out like one of those fun housewives reality shows where women are sitting around either trying to help solve your problem or blaming you for causing the problem in the first place. It’s a delight to see the coven treat each other in a sisterly manner instead of like most stories where the witches are plotting the demise of the whole town or the men who had deceived them. This storyline has a sensual feel to it where the reader is going to delve deep into the characters and especially what happens to Alexia. I find it humorous that one of the most important discussions of the day had to do with the last time the women got laid.

Samhain Eve (known also as Halloween) became one of the most enticingly hot night of the year. The reader gets over excited to see what a few single, horny women can do to entertain themselves. It’s refreshing to see how men aren’t the only ones allowed to satisfy their sexual appetites.

The plot is exciting and in a way a little mysterious. When Wiccan women decide that they are going to be mischievous, you don’t know what kind of trouble they are going to concoct, especially in a quaint place like a bed and breakfast establishment.

The dialogue is smart and humorous, which gives the characters life and personality. The conversation between Alexia and her spirit lover, Lance, will make any reader smile at how they go about teasing each other. Alexia is a strong female character who is open minded, adventurous and sexual in nature, which makes her lovable but playful as well. Her conjured lover is handsome, with a take charge attitude, but he soon finds out that she is the one in control and soon takes back her sexual power over him.

The author focuses on the characters and let’s the story play itself out. She takes a simple concept of finding sexual gratitude and freedom and broadens it into a story of longing and intimacy. You are going to love this story of supernatural sex and witchcraft. You will soon believe that you could wish for your own divine paranormal sexual visitor in your bed, fulfilling all your fantasies.

Picture Prompt – Teens!

Who has a teenager at home who is coming into his or her own? Who is feeling the affects of trying to understand this person who is struggling to be a young adult? What kind of turmoil is going on in your house?

This writing assignment can vent off some frustrations. Write a paragraph or two of where you find yourself emotionally with your teen. You may find it’s refreshing to let things go on paper. Besides, if you write youth fiction, you may need to practice the emotions that parents go through in this stage of a youth’s development.

Good luck.

Crime Scene – Picture Prompt

The new series on CTV Monday nights at 8pm, Gotham, appears to be a good series. I am not much of a batman fan but the series focuses on the development of all substantial characters and their origins. Penguin, cat woman, Riddler, Ivy, Detective Gordan and Bruce as well as the two major crime syndicates are not ignored. The first episode starts with the death of Bruce’s parents and the crime scene that starts it all.

Crime scenes are difficult to create sometimes. You never know how much information to tell and how graphic to be.

Write and describe a crime scene. Where is the location and setting? How many victims involved? Who got there first? Were there any witnesses?

Have fun with it and mention details.
