Read an excerpt at the book page.

Synopsis:

I’m a normal girl. I am. I love shoes, fragranced body care, and hair products. I love all the chick flicks that have come out in the theaters in the last 2 years (and a lot of the old ones) and I obsess about my wardrobe.  I respond positively to most of the marketing directed at females in my age group.

My name is Colleen Underhill, and the only abnormal thing about me is that I just discovered I am, or I transformed into, a magician; not the disappearing bunny kind, but the power-shooting-out-of-your-hands kind of magician.

My problem now is that I do NOT believe in magic. Well, I believe in it. I have seen it shoot out of my own hands, but I oppose it in a moral sense; no hexes, no spells, no incantations, no potions, no amulets, no tomes, no casting circles, no eye of newt, none of that. I have to be very clear because people pressure me about it. Whatever they say about “how it’s done,” this is a morality issue for me and I will not cave in to their pressure.

But what do I do now?

Virtual Release Party: The Chapter Photos

I’d like to extend special thanks to the wonderful photographers who shared their photos with me for the chapter photos in Don’t Judge a Book By Its Magic! There were so many cool shots of the kooky Seattle landmarks that it was hard to choose which ones to use. But these photos were the cream of the crop! Of course, I gave them credit inside the book, and a free ecopy of the book, but I want to be sure to include them in the party as a wonderful part of my book!

See all the photos as they appear in the book here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/katepolicani/sets/72157631371763434/

Seattle + Coffee = Love

If you don’t live here, you really don’t get it. Sure, you need your coffee in the morning just like any other responsible adult. But in Seattle there is a special connection with our java that transcends the relationship of people in a lot of other places. We drink it hot, iced, mixed with other stuff, straight-up and super-concentrated, and even diet. Starbucks, Seattle’s Best Coffee, Tully’s, and lots of other less famous places got their successful start here for a reason. Here’s why: Continue reading
