The type of magic in my OMG… series is the type of magic kids escape to between the pages of a book or find in their dreams. OMG… books are (and will be) a witches’ brew of magical realism, humor, friendship, and of course spells, duh.
Magic, fun and spookiness are necessary for kids. That is part of the reason they love Halloween. I know, there is that candy part too. But, if you think about it, why do so many adults still have Halloween parties? Why do so many adults love to dress up for Halloween? They still remember the fun and the magic of that time of year when they were a child. The parties with the costumes still take place decades later with or without the candy.
Ooops. I got off the topic. But, back to my point, the magic you will find in my OMG… books will be fun with a dash of spookiness. Well, spooky if you are 7-12 years old. Not Edgar Allen Poe kind of spooky but early middle grade kind of spooky.
In the first book, OMG…Am I a Witch?!, the main character, April, learns that she may be a witch. And, she freaks out a bit. But, with the help of her sassy friend, Grace, and her stable and resourceful friend, Eve, the reader takes a journey with April to see if she really is a witch and, if she is, how powerful of a witch can she become?
And, in the next book, the reader will see her powers grow. Hopefully (**fingers crossed**) the sequel will be out in the first half of 2015.
