Many thanks to Fresh Fiction for having me here to talk about my latest book!

The fun part about writing my witchy series is putting a bit of myself in each character. Usually, it's my demented sense of humor and my friends will tell you they hear my voice any time they read Jazz's books.

But if I had a choice for A DEMON DOES IT BETTER, who would I be?

That's really a toughie. I adore Deisphe with her bad kitty attitude and her caring nature for her patients. The idea of turning into a sleek leopard sounds like fun.

Lili with her gift of magickal healing. A cozy house, good friends.

But I'd have to say I wouldn't mind being Cleo for a day. Can you imagine a cat with her history? She's THAT Cleo! The female who had Julius Caesar and Marc Anthony as lovers along with ruling Egypt.

I'm sure she wanted to be thrown into one of the slinky cats known during that ancient time, and instead is a fluffy gorgeous Persian. But maybe that's what she likes since she has a good-sized tail to twitch at any admiring male.

Cleo also loves children and enjoys visiting the Pediatric ward where she relates stories. I'm sure she has to make sure many of them are G-rated. She has magick of her own and she has a pretty cushy life. Sleeps when she wants, gets to visit interesting places, and a powerful witch at her beck and call. Sometimes overindulges on catnip wine, but it's expected when you're thousands of years old.

I wasn't going to create a clichéd cat for a witch. I wanted one that was equal to Lili. Cleo is that and more. It's not just feline arrogance, which she definitely has. She also has a soft heart for anyone hurting. And she's not above offering a wealth of advice about the opposite sex. Refer to above. Cleopatra, Queen of the Nile.

I like the idea of naps on a silk cushion, a sense of freedom, and hopefully a better diet than your average kitty kibble. Oh that's right, Cleo only eats gourmet food.

Cleo is a force of supernatural nature. She gives as good as she gets and always comes out on top.

So who wouldn't want to have that kind of power?

What about you? Would you be willing to hang out inside a critter for awhile?



A madhouse is not place for a curious witch...

After more than a century, Doctor Lili Carter, witch healer extraordinaire, has returned to San Francisco and taken a job at Crying Souls Hospital and Asylum, where something peculiar and wicked is happening. Patients are disappearing, and Lili wants to know why.

And double dangerous for a demon...

Lili finds herself undeniably attracted to perhaps the most mysterious patient of all—a demented but seriously sexy demon named Jared. What's behind the gorgeous chameleon demon's late-night escapades?

Before long, Lili and Jared are investigating each other—and creating a whole new kind of magic.

Re: Linda Wisdom | Who Would I Be?

I like sci-fi, NOT that I would want to be in that place but I enjoy a wild read!
(Darci Paice 1:43am January 3, 2012)

I think it could be fascinating to view the world from a critter's eyes, to see what would appeal as a critter and what would repel. If I could figure out the latter I could help my mother-in-law with her mole problem.
(G. Bisbjerg 2:59am January 3, 2012)

Books that ruffle my feathers intrigue me.
(Cheryl English 5:29am January 3, 2012)

I think it would be too scary. Happy to read it though.
(Mary Preston 5:33am January 3, 2012)

Being a cat in the Carmony household wouldn't be bad at all!
(Marjorie Carmony 5:46am January 3, 2012)

I have always said I would have loved to be one of my own cats. They are spoiled beyond belief.
(Debbie Penny 6:16am January 3, 2012)

I'd love to be a cat, if they're part of the family, they're treated like gold.
(Mary Smith 6:54am January 3, 2012)

Sure I'll do it and hang out at my house where my husband would spoil me rotten along with the rest of the fur babies.
(Theresa Norris 7:26am January 3, 2012)

A Demon Does it Better is definitely going on my TBB list! I
can always depend on Linda Wisdom for a kick-butt heroine with
a sense of humor that (literally) has me laughing out loud!

I definitely think I would be much too 'thin skinned' to hang out inside a critter
(Shirley Younger 8:21am January 3, 2012)

Catchy title. :) Enjoy the humour in your book!
(May Pau 8:39am January 3, 2012)

I have always felt that Cats are the most intelligent pet - always on their terms or not at all. Well that's my cats view!
(Barbara Hanson 9:08am January 3, 2012)

If I was my dog I wouldn't mind. She is so adored, it wouldn't be bad to be pampered and it would be interesting to see the world through her eyes.
(Kathleen Bianchi 9:42am January 3, 2012)

I think cats are very smart animals...probably the smartest..I love cats....Thanks for sharing..
(Dawn Staniszeski 9:44am January 3, 2012)

I am so glad to be entered into this contest. I just discovered you yesterday through a fellow facebooker. Just had to throw that out there first. I wouldn't mind hanging out inside a critter...just so long as I'm still pampered! *laughs*
(Sebrina Cassity 10:15am January 3, 2012)

I think it would be fun to be a critter, as long as I know I can go back. Forever would be a different animal.
(Renee Brown 10:22am January 3, 2012)

I wouldn't mind hanging out inside of a critter for a while. The question would be which one. There are so many that I not only love, but I admire for one reason or another, such as the sleekness of cats, the loyalty of dogs, the beauty of the hummingbird, the swiftness of a dragonfly. Then you have others like the cheetah, the wise owl, or the eagle. I must say that your posting has me totally enthralled and eager to read your book. I wish you a very Happy and Healthy New Year!!
(Peggy Roberson 10:44am January 3, 2012)

I love all these comments, ladies!

My dogs are very spoiled. Same with our parrot and tortoise.

I think the only drawback for any of us to hang out in a critter too long is no chocolate and coffee!

Thank you all for stopping by!
(Linda Wisdom 10:44am January 3, 2012)

I would enjoy seeing the world from a cats perspective, or our
dog. Looks like an interesting book.
(Gayle Cochrane 10:51am January 3, 2012)

Cats always seem to know exactly what they want...even if their humans
can't quite understand what it is! Congrats on the new book and Happy
New Year!
(E Felder 11:00am January 3, 2012)

One critter I would like to be is someone's well loved pet! I also wouldn't mind being a hawk or an eagle and just float.
(Ellen Clampitt 11:19am January 3, 2012)

Oh sounds like another great read from you... It would be interesting to see things from a pet's or animal's view of things...
(Colleen Conklin 12:19pm January 3, 2012)

I like the idea of a hawk or eagle.

This is why I enjoy writing flash fiction with the critters from my books. You get to see the world from their eyes. And what they'll do to get into trouble.
(Linda Wisdom 12:37pm January 3, 2012)

Injoyed your blog. I quess it would be fun to live inside a pampered poodle for a while.
(Sheila True 12:53pm January 3, 2012)

I always say my husabnd and I work really hard to give our cat a nice place to stay. He rules our house.
(Sandy Fielder 1:23pm January 3, 2012)

I would love to be a cat. Mine is spoiled rotton. Thanks for giving me a chance to win your book.
(Linda Hall 1:34pm January 3, 2012)

I's love to be a dog for a day just to find out what is so
fascinating in smelling stuff (it's usually rather yucky stuff
for my dog).
(Ilona Fenton 1:47pm January 3, 2012)

I have always wondered about life from the viewpoint of my cats and dogs---so I'd love to hang out in their world for a day or more.
(Sue Farrell 2:05pm January 3, 2012)

Great blog Linda!!! The book sounds fabulous!!! :)

If I were going to be a critter I'd love to be a horse... I grew up with them on a ranch and I loved watching them snort and prance and play when you turned them loose in the arena...

I'd love to feel that power and run like the wind...

Good luck with the new release!

Lisa :)
(Lisa Kessler 2:30pm January 3, 2012)

Looks like a great book, no I wouldn't like to be inside a creature...
(Vikki Parman 2:54pm January 3, 2012)

It might be fun to be a cat for a little while, but someone would have to cook for me..have you smelled cat food :-)
(Cheryl Ricin 3:12pm January 3, 2012)

I agree about the smell of cat food. Dog food can be that way too. I get a lot of dog food scented kisses. It's fun to see how you all answer my question.
(Linda Wisdom 3:44pm January 3, 2012)

It would be interesting to be inside a critter for a few days see the world
from their point of view.
(Anabell Gomez 4:43pm January 3, 2012)

A Demon Does it Better...WOW
(Debbie Ellis 5:31pm January 3, 2012)

Oh, oh, oh! Give me even one day as something powerful that can fly!!! A raptor, a gryphon, a dragon, a phoenix (since I'm wishing I might as well reach for the moon). I love jumping out of planes. I love heights. Give me the grandest views of the earth and the power of the wind. LOL, thanks, Linda. This exercise made my day ;)
(Angela McCallister 6:02pm January 3, 2012)

It would be fun and fascinating to hang out being inside a critter for awhile and getting to see and explore everything from their perspective. Might be fun just to climb around and snoop (if I were a cat) and get pampered laying around on cozy pillows. Love the title and the cover of 'A Demon Does It Better'.
(Linda Luinstra 6:11pm January 3, 2012)

As long as I had an iron clad promise that I would be back in my normal body the very next day, then I wouldnt mind hanging out inside a critter for a while. It would kind of like shape-shifting which is something I've always wanted to try.
(April Harvey 6:15pm January 3, 2012)

Does a demon do it better. If I win I'll know for sure!
(Kathleen Jones 6:24pm January 3, 2012)

I wouldn't mind hanging out inside a critter for awhile, if I could change back when I wanted. Think it would be a great experience to be able to fly like an eagle and soar high in the sky, then be able to change to another animal, at another time, to experience what they do.
(Rich Cook 6:47pm January 3, 2012)

I love shifters and would enjoy being a panther very much.
(Diane Sadler 6:55pm January 3, 2012)

I love the idea of shape-shifting and I would LOVE to have the ability.
(Mattie King 7:20pm January 3, 2012)

I am too allergic to cats to want to be one! HA!
(Jennifer Beyer 7:21pm January 3, 2012)

This sounds like a fascinating read. I so love paranormal romance, and A Demon Does It Better will definitely be on my list.
(Lynne Mauro 7:26pm January 3, 2012)

I certainly would consider an animal, yet a friendly one would be best for companionship and listening. Native American Indians consider animals as their kindred spirits and are mindful of their habitat and treatment.
(Alyson Widen 1:16pm January 4, 2012)

I would love to be a sleek panther!!
(Marcelle Cole 4:09pm January 4, 2012)

Talk about some great ideas here! I call my dogs hellhounds and Barney will be one in a future book. Trust me, it's fitting. :}
I've heard so many people say they don't have an imagination, but it's amazing what they can come up with.
(Linda Wisdom 5:32pm January 4, 2012)

Oh if it had to be any animal, of course a cat would be my favorite (they call me catslady lol).
(Jeanne Sheats 11:00pm January 5, 2012)

This book sounds totally cool. Hope I can read it soon. Have a great day. :)
