USA TODAY Bestselling Author Misty Evans - Witches Anonymous - Author Interview, Book Giveaway


Witches Anonymous Series

For fans of Charmed and Supernatural…the first book in the popular Witches Anonymous Series, rereleased with fresh editing, a new cover, and a BONUS prequel, The Devil & Venus di Milo!

In a room full of witches, you’d think I wouldn’t stand out. You’d be wrong.

My name is Amy Atwood and I’m a witch. Not one of those goodie-two-shoes Wiccans. No, I’m a Satan-worshipping, Devil-made-me-do-it witch.

However, after catching Lucifer performing a particularly wicked hex act with Emilia, my sister—a tried and true Wiccan—I turned my back on the Devil. I didn’t exactly expect him to be faithful, but bewitching it with my sister? High ick factor.
So, I swore an oath. No more casting spells to entertain him. No more curses to carry out his desires, and no more gathering of souls. No more witchery of any kind. Witches Anonymous here I come…

Lucifer, however, isn’t about to let me go. Witches Anonymous or not, I’m up to my wicked black hat in trouble of Biblical proportions…

Author Interview

How do you develop your plots and characters? Do you use any set formula?

Characters come to me first, plots second. I have to get a feel for my hero and heroine’s greatest fears and figure out what big, fat, embarrassing secret they’re hiding, then I can pit them against each other.

As far as a formula, I use the Blake Snyder Beat Sheet method for screenwriting to plot my stories. I lay all the high points out, then brainstorm with one or two writing partners. Once I start writing, the characters often take the plot off the rails, but that’s the fun part. They surprise me! I love it when that happens. That’s when I know I've peeled back the superficial layers and hit bedrock for the story.

What, in your opinion, are the most important elements of good writing?
Damaged characters and conflict, conflict, conflict. The characters have to have something major to overcome internally and the hero and heroine need to be at odds with each other over some external goal. Heats up the action and the romance!!

If you didn't like writing books (Which you do), what would you see yourself doing for a living?
Pool shark, CIA agent, rock and roll singer…maybe all three! In all honesty, if I wasn't an author, I would be an integrative yoga therapist. I started doing yoga several years ago in order to heal a back injury and now I’d like to help others heal from injuries and integrate wellness into their lives.

Fun Facts Questions:

If you had a superpower, what would it be? 
Dematerialize anywhere I want like the vampires in JR Ward’s BDB series!

what secret talents do you have? 
I’m a great cook! And I’m pretty handy at decorating cool cakes.

Where is one place you would like to visit that you haven't been before? 

What is something you hope to accomplish before you die? 
Lots of traveling around the country to see all of my friends.

If you could have any accent for anywhere in the world, what would you choose? 
French! Or maybe Italian. Something sexy, anyway!
