Patti Larsen ” Family Magic" Tour and KINDLE Giveaway

Ever since I was a little girl, I dreamed of being ordinary. That my mom baked cookies instead of brewing spells. That my dad lived with us, not on the demon plane. All I ever wanted was to be like everyone else.

I know what you're thinking. You'd die to live in my world. How cool would it be if magic was real and you could do anything? 

You have no idea. Here I am in another new town, but it's the same old thing. Cheerleader bullies? How original. Friendless again? Who's surprised? I suck at fitting in. Especially when I'm in the middle of saving my family from total destruction.

My name is Sydlynn Hayle, and that's my life.

Trade you.

My Opinion

Well there's not much this book doesn't have in it.
Truly I can think of only one thing...Normalcy!
Being part witch and demon isn't all that's it seems to the outsiders. Sydlynn just wants to be like everyone else and like a normal person when things get dicey, Syn must make decisions about her magic that effects not just her but a whole lot of others.
High school seems like a walk in the park compared to the things Sydlynn has to deal with.
This is by far a great fantasy wrapped in a teenage world. Hot guys, witches, demons....oh my!
This is the first book in Sydlynn's magic journey and if this is any inkling of what the next book holds.....Wholly Boogers!!!

About the Author

 Patti Larsen is an award-winning middle grade and young adult author with a passion for the paranormal. But that sounds so freaking formal, doesn't it? I'm a storyteller who hears teenager's voices so loud I have to write them down. I love sports even though they don't love me. I've dabbled in everything from improv theater to film making and writing TV shows, singing in an all girl band to running my own hair salon. 

But always, always, writing books calls me home.
I've had my sights set on world literary domination for a while now. Which means getting my books out there, to you, my darling readers. It's the coolest thing ever, this job of mine, being able to tell stories I love, only to see them all shiny and happy in your hands... thank you for reading.
As for the rest of it, I'm short (permanent), slightly round (changeable) and blonde (for ever and ever). I love to talk one on one about the deepest topics and can't seem to stop seeing the big picture. I happily live on Prince Edward Island, Canada, home to Anne of Green Gables and the most beautiful red beaches in the world, with my very patient husband and four massive cats.

  1. I would love to be a vampire... and live forever! ;-)

  2. Would you rather be a witch, demon, vampire or Fae? Why? What an interesting question. Probably a witch. A vamp requires eating blood, but I am squeamish about that. Demons are supposed to be evil, so that is out. I think witches are basically like a chemist but with herbs and odd ingredients instead of chemicals. That would be coolest to me. Thanks for the chance!
