About

How to Win Friends and Influence Magicians by Kate Policani

Genre: Fantasy/Romance

Independent publishing is a challenging environment, and getting a good head start takes lots of work and also (surprise, surprise!) a little cash. For this, my third book and first series, I'd really love to give it a great beginning!

Here is the synopsis of the book:

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 became, or I was turned 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, as it I have seen it shooting out of my own hands, but I am morally against it. No hexes, no spells, no incantations, no potions, no amulets, no tomes, no casting circles, no eye of newt, none of that. I am specific because people are pushing me about it. Whatever they say about “how it’s done”, this is a morality issue for me and I am not going to cave in to their pressure.

But what do I do now?

Now, what would it be like if the main character's name was your name?

SPRU is the secret, magical university where Colleen is virtually held prisoner to keep the Convergence a secret from the rest of the world. Its motto, Celamentum, Potestatem, Fraternitas, which means Obscurity, Power, Brotherhood, is the picture I chose to represent the project. The final cover art is still in production.

My plan for this book is to give my manuscript to Kathleen Firstenberg, my star editor for buffing and polishing, and then join Novel Publicity's Whirlwind Tour. I think that will give my book the boost it needs to take off! I'd love to include you in this journey. Several of my Rewards are designed to make you a part of the book writing and publishing process!
