Seriously Wicked by Tina Connolly
I’m so so excited to have Tina Connolly on the blog today for the Seriously Wicked tour! Many of you may think her name is familiar because I push her first trilogy, Ironskin, on anyone who makes the mistake of mentioning they like unique fantasy >.>. She is back with a lighter but so so fun fantasy, Seriously Wicked, which I’ll be reviewing next week! Be sure to check out the bottom of the post for a giveaway of 5 copies of Seriously Wicked!
In the world of Seriously Wicked, witches have their own internet, “WitchNet”, that’s not connected to our internet. They also have their own TV, books, and reality stars. Therefore I give you:
WitchClick’s Four Things We’re Crazy About This Week!
Zolak the Demon-Hunter: Everyone’s favorite series about a ripped brooding dude taking down demons takes an exciting turn this week with the stunt casting of a real live demon in the role of the latest demon that Zolak is hunting. The demon is signed for a 13-episode arc, but sources say he’s already looking for ways to wiggle out of his contract. Human actors have been drafted (a different one for each episode, of course! Don’t want that demon becoming permanently embodied!) and are apparently being dosed with amnesia pills when it’s all over and sent back to Hollywood.
Chad Demon’s latest parody video: Long-running non-witch series The Real Housewives… is well over-due for the Chad Demon treatment. He totally delivers here with The Real Housewitches of Salem, Mass. Watch as beloved comedienne Malinda Malicious plays a bottle-blond witch who’s a leeeetle too fond of love spells – if you know what we mean, and we think you do!
Demons! The Musical: Still the longest-running witch show at three years, two months, and counting. Witch theatre is well-known for everything going wrong. Paranoid actors, prop managers who hex the props, audiences who start hurling spells in the middle of the show…. Well, word has it that a certain star of Demons! is teetering on the edge of a nervous breakdown, and has become convinced that the costume manager is actually a rabid were-raccoon who rifles through his dressing room trash can at night. No word yet on whether this has any basis in reality or not, but bets are quietly being taken on whether the show will last past the Sunday matinee. We will keep you posted.
Brooms. Retro brooms are back…in a big way! Blame popular style blogger “A Witch and a Flair” for bringing back this iconic mode of transportation. Flair has been posting pics of herself in a pencil skirt and pearls, riding on a simply darling shiny red enamel house broom. That particular model also comes in turquoise, lime green, and eggplant, and frankly, we all want one now.
Check back tomorrow as we dissect the new witch rom-com that’s sweeping the nation, Four Hexes and A Love Spell! We have an exclusive interview with star Terrorina Tang to share with you!
Thank you for having me on the blog (and for the kind words about the Ironskin series!)
About Seriously Wicked:
Title: SERIOUSLY WICKED
Author: Tina Connolly
Pub. Date: May 5, 2015
Publisher: Tor Teen
Formats: Hardcover, eBook
The only thing worse than being a witch is living with one.
Camellia’s adopted mother wants Cam to grow up to be just like her. Problem is, Mom’s a seriously wicked witch.
Cam’s used to stopping the witch’s crazy schemes for world domination. But when the witch summons a demon, he gets loose—and into Devon, the cute new boy at school.
Now Cam’s suddenly got bigger problems than passing Algebra. Her friends are getting zombiefied. Their dragon is tired of hiding in the RV garage. For being a shy boy-band boy, Devon is sure kissing a bunch of girls. And a phoenix hidden in the school is going to explode on the night of the Halloween Dance.
To stop the demon before he destroys Devon’s soul, Cam might have to try a spell of her own. But if she’s willing to work spells like the witch…will that mean she’s wicked too?
