Magic & Mayhem with Authors Unleashed!
If I could choose a magical power, wow, what would it be? I've always dreamed of flying. Sadly, I get motion sickness. Breathing under water? Again, motion sickness could be a problem. How about reading another person's mind? I can barely remember my character's names, think of the confusion! Throw fire? I've been burned...no thanks. Super strong? That might come in handy, if I ever needed to lift a car off a railroad track or sling a rogue demon across a room. How about super hearing? Nah, I like my quiet time. Ability to stretch like a rubber band? I think I'd have a hard time keeping it together. Maybe I need to look at other than super powers. How about being a vampire? Couldn't. I like sunshine and get depressed in the dark, although immortality is something I've often dreamed of and some vampires have highly sensitive sex drives...yum! Shapeshifting? You bet. I could like being able to run like the wind on all fours, able to sniff out bad guys in a single whiff. What about a witch? Casting spells to protect loved ones or to bring down the bad guys could come in handy. Having a specific skill like Deme Chattox with her ability to influence all things related to earth could lead to something twisted or down and dirty...A witch with magical abilities? Hell, yeah!
The dark fey in my Steel Born series all have a knack, one special ability that is theirs alone. The knack is a private thing that they don’t share with just anybody, only with their closest companions. And I would totally not be like that! If I had a magical superpower, you can be sure I’d be running amok with it. So I suppose it’s a good thing I don’t have any special abilities outside of turning box brownie mix into drool-worthy desserts. (Hint: Get the 13x9 Duncan Hines Chewy Fudge Brownie mix. Use the “fudgy” directions and slightly underbake it. When it cools, slather half a jar of Trader Joe’s Fleur de Sel Caramel Sauce over the top. Melt a couple rows of Trader Joe’s 72% Dark Chocolate Pound-Plus bar together with a couple tablespoons of butter and pour that over the top of the caramel. It’s magic, I tell ya!)
If I DID happen to get bitten by a radioactive mutant alien talking goldfish and get granted a magical superpower (yes, I know, I’m mixing my origin stories a bit) I’d want to be able to add time. Wouldn’t have to be much. Just, say, an hour, here and there. Like, to my reading time. I think most people would call me a hero ; )
If you had a magical ability or superpower, what would it be?

Deme can't wait to pick up where their off-the-charts chemistry left off, but she senses a change in Cal. Though the sex is hotter than ever, she doesn't need mystical powers to know there's something he's not telling her. Something that threatens their budding relationship, and their latest case…

A LITTLE NIGHT MUSE by Jessa Slade
Convicted of treason, Adelyn has been banished to the sunlit realm of humans—a fate worse than death for a musetta who exists only to inspire other phae. To reverse her exile, she must find a pair of lovers who have fled the court and return them to face the Queen's wrath. But once in the mortal realm, she meets a man who unveils her hidden desires…
When Josh Reimer discovers an ethereal beauty at a cabin near his ranch, he decides the neighborly thing to do is take her in. Adelyn inspires a passion unlike anything he's ever known and he vows not to lose the magic they've found together—even if that means she must choose between her home and their love.
