Contest and guest post with Sherry Soule

Anna here~ We're taking a break from the Spooktacular Sunday feature today because we have a special guest author visiting with us as part of the Bewitching Book Tours...but next weekend we go back to our normal routine. Sherry Soule is in the house and not only is she conducting a character interview, she's also giving away one ebook copy of Beautifully Broken! I will put the contest details at the end of the post. So let's all welcome Sherry and Jillian *cheering and clapping*

Hi Everyone! I thought it might be entertaining if I did an interview with one of the the main characters from my recent release, Beautifully Broken. I decided to interview the lovely, Jillian Brossard.

If you’ve already read the novel, this interview should be amusing and insightful. If you haven’t read the novel yet, hopefully the character interview will pique your interest.

Please state your name:

Jillian Ann Brossard. But people just call me, Jill

Astrological sign:



I’m not telling!


I dislike animals, but cats make great familiars for witches

Favorite food:

Salad. Dressing on the side.

Describe yourself in three words:

Powerful, Confident, Vibrant

Wardrobe/Personal Style:

I like to wear dresses most of the time. A like a more feminine style and I always wear
three-inch heels

What do you do for a living?


Are any other people living with you? Who are they?

Well, there’s my annoying husband, Jackson and Shiloh.

What makes you happy?

Shopping. Creating new spells. Studying the Craft.

What is your greatest fear?

Fear? What a ridiculous question. I am the one to strike fear into the hearts of my enemies.

What would you change about yourself if you could?

This line of questioning is absurd. I’m perfect as I am.

What is one secret that you’ve never told anyone?

Oh…I’m in love with a man, who does not return my affections

What's the worst thing you've ever done? Why?

Are you serious? I suppose some people might think keeping secrets from your husband or having an affair is bad. But whatever.

If you could be an animal, what would it be?

Easy. A Jaguar. Sleek, dangerous, beautiful.

Rapid fire Questions:

Pizza or Hamburgers?

Ewww. neither

Ice cream or cupcakes?

Ice cream

Forest or City?


Vampires or Werewolves?


Team Edward or Jacob?

Team who?

TrueBlood or Vampire Diaries?

Stupid question! Witchcraft, of course!

 Book Description: 

They say every town has its secrets, but that doesn’t even begin to describe Whispering Pines. The townsfolk are a superstitious lot and the mystical disappearance of a local teen has everyone murmuring about a centuries old witch’s curse.

Sixteen-year-old Shiloh Ravenwolf is a heritage witch from the Broussard family, a family both destined and cursed. When she takes a summer job at Ravenhurst Manor, she discovers a ghost with an agenda. That’s where she meets the new town hottie, Trent Donovan, and immediately becomes spellbound by his charms.

Finally, Shiloh's met someone who is supercute and totally into her, but Trent may be the next victim on the supernatural hit list. And Shiloh is the only person with the power to save him. Complicated much?

It sucks to have a destiny, especially since Shiloh would rather spend her summer being a normal girl who worries about clothes and boys, not the supernatural. But she’s never been normal, and the stranger things become the more her own magical senses awaken.

With cryptic messages from a pesky wraith, she will begin to understand the mysterious significance of the strange mark branded on her wrist and decide how much she's willing to sacrifice to protect the other teenagers in town.

Unfortunately, for Shiloh, not all ghosts want help crossing over. Some want vengeance.
