Woot! Today’s the release of You Bet Your Banshee (The Three Kingdoms) and I’m so excited about it that I’m giving away a copy to one lucky commenter. But first, did you know there’s still time to win a copy of Keyboards and Kink Anthology which releases from Evernight this Friday. Just visit as many of the author blog sites participating in the blog hop for a chance to win!
And now on to the banshee release day song. This month is all about stripping/taking your clothes off for What’s Playing Wednesdays. I know, it isn’t my regular fair and I’m sure someone will be very put out with me for the objectification of women, but the heroine of You Bet Your Banshee is a stripper. She became one as a way to make fast money. Did I mention she’s also a banshee on the run which means she can’t exactly get a job where paperwork is required? Or that she has a very unique skill that makes her a good stripper? Yeah, well, she does.
So when I was thinking about a theme for What’s Playing Wednesdays, I realized there are a lot of songs out there about stripping, taking your clothes off, etc. and decided that was the direction I needed to take in honor of Magda.
Today’s offering is Wyclef Jean’s “Perfect Gentleman”. I really do like this song and when it came out, I was immediately hooked. It’s fun, it’s interesting, and well, just because she dances from pole to pole, it don’t make her a ho, no. Which is exactly how I portrayed Magda.
So, to win a copy of You Bet Your Banshee, just tell me what your name would be if you were an exotic dancer. Would you go for something traditional, or something else? The contest will remain open until midnight June 10th and the winner announced on Monday, June 11. And don’t try to tell me you’ve never given any thought to stripping, even if it’s only in your own home. I’ll also be over at Stacey Espino’s blog tomorrow with another chance to win, so be sure to check back for the link!
What’s a banshee to do when she’s sentenced to death because of her inability to cry? Move to Earth and become a stripper, of course. For ten years, Magda O’Quinn has lived on Earth, supporting herself with her butt-shaking skills and hiding from the banshee queen who wants her death, before she discovers people are hunting her who won’t stop until she’s back in Fairworld.
The first to find her is hunky Halfling, Ryvan Keller, an agent of the fairy queen. The attraction Magda feels for him is panty-wetting to be sure, but there’s no way she’ll give in to her attraction and meekly follow him back into the hell of Fairworld. She’ll have to battle extreme lust for a sexy Halfling, fall in love, and defeat an evil queen before she can get back to the business of having a life again.
