MG/YA Blog-A-Thon Continues with Guest Author Lawna Mackie!

Sorry for the delay in posting today, but real life got in the way again!! I had to go get two shots, not one at once - my flu shot that everyone should get, and a shingles shot that they give to us old people.:)

Anyway, I am very happy to introduce to you a very unusual and beautiful woman, Lawna Mackie and her very unusual character, ThreeO.

Here is a little about Lawna:

I have always believed in fairy tales and when I got tired of the old ones I made up my own. Each story would have a hero and heroine, but they were anything but typical.

I devoured my first romance novel when I was a teenager. I couldn’t read them fast enough. Years later I stumbled across my first paranormal romance…an injustice would be done if I tried to explain my joy when I found this genre of romance. My passion was finally in print.

Now, with the help of my bizarre dreams and crazy imagination, I have started to write and intend to share my stories with you. I hope you’ll love them as much as I do.

I am truly blessed. My husband is my inspiration and soul mate. We live on a small acreage in Didsbury, Alberta, with our most beloved companions, Dozer, Daisy and Mandarin.

Happy reading everyone and please stop by to visit me.

IMPOSSIBLE TO HOLD – December 19, 2011 released through Liquid Silver Books
ENCHANTMENT – January 13, 2012 released through Muse It Up Publishing

Lawna, tell us about your books:


What not to do? Well, for starters, DON'T render yourself unconscious by falling out of your canoe while trying to grab onto a beaver dam. Secondly, don't wake up in a world that outlaws strangers, and, above all, DON'T fall for a guy whose main job is to banish you from the world.

Meeka is searching for peace, a magical reprieve from the heartbreak of her past, perhaps even a dashing hero, and she finds it all – for a moment. The world of Enchantment she blunders into is certainly peaceful, until Meeka discovers her dormant magical abilities. Furthermore, there is a gorgeous knight in shining armor – Kerrigan – but he turns out to be a part-time dragon sworn to protect the intoxicating land of Enchantment, a duty that includes removing all foreigners, the fascinating Meeka included. To further complicate matters, sparks literally fly between Meeka and Kerrigan. An undeniable attraction continually forces them together in a riptide of unleashed passion, but evil forces are determined to destroy the dragon, take control of Meeka’s newfound powers, and use her as a weapon of mass destruction.

Meet Threeo

Who is Threeo? Why is he here? Let's find out from the character himself. He is being interviewed by his author.

We have a new character for you to meet today…and a very interesting character at that.
Welcome, why don’t you tell us a little about yourself, and where do you come from?

Hello everyone. My name is Threeo and I’m a Hippo-Dog-Burrowing Owl from the world of Enchantment.

Well Threeo, that’s quite a mouthful. Exactly what is a Hippo-Dog-Burrowing Owl?
I resemble all three earthly creatures. I have a small hippopotamus body, and fluffy dog tail, and my head is the burrowing owl. I was created by magic.

I see. Can you tell us a little about your world of Enchantment?
Enchantment is a great world, or at least it was until she arrived. I have visions, so I knew she would come. Enchantment doesn’t allow foreigners of any sort. My master is the Enforcer for the world and he was supposed to get rid of her.

Oh my! That sounds harsh. How was he to “get ride of her”? And who exactly is she?
Meeka came to Enchantment from earth. She fell in the water and some how managed to cross the dimension and into Enchantment. Most creatures die. Kerrigan, my master should have sent her back, but he was scared she’d perish. What he didn’t know at that time was that she is a very powerful sorceress.

Tell us more about your life Threeo.
Okay, well, like I said Kerrigan is my master, I’ve been with him for a very long time. Oh…I also have babies. Baby Threeo’s! They are born in glass tubes and I raise them. When they are old enough they go to live with others like Kerrigan. The babies really like Meeka. Kerrigan’s parents Todd and Paddy Beaver are my favorites to visit. Paddy always has treats for Threeo.

“Beaver” you almost make that sound like they are Beavers?
Yes, they are beavers, but not like your human beavers. They adopted Kerrigan as a baby. Kerrigan is actually a dragon.

So what is happening in Enchantment these days?
{He shakes his head} It’s very scary in Enchantment. I’ve had a dream that Meeka kills Kerrigan, and she destroys the world.

Really? Is Meeka that type of person?
No, she’s not that type of person, but an evil Enchantment Counselor is going to try to capture her. If my vision is correct she will become a weapon of destruction. Kerrigan will try to protect her. They have feelings for one another.

It sounds scary Threeo. I hope your visions don’t come true. Is there anything else you’d like to tell us about Enchantment?
I think everyone would like our world. It’s beautiful. We have seven moons, which are actually like your sun, but the seven moons are a different color each day, making our world change color daily. We have pixies in Pixie Field, and we also spend time at Funny Fish Lake. We have Itchits and Fur Balls…everything is magical. Thanks for talking to me I do have a tendency to talk a lot. I really hope you’ll enjoy Enchantment.

So happy to have met you, Threeo, and I am hoping your world will not be destroyed.  Thank you, Lawna, for visiting and for bringing Threeo. I believe Lawna is giving out a free copy of her soon-to-be-published YA fantasy, Enchantment to the lucky commenter who wins the drawing.

Until the next time, thank you to the people who continue to follow my meanderings. I am on various blogs for the MG/YA Blog-A-Thon and you can find where I am with this schedule.

My next guest will be Marva Dasef, who has been the person who has organized and kept this MG/YA Blog-A-Thon rolling along! Come back to see her post. You won't be sorry.

One more thing before I go. I did my book launch for If I Could Be Like Jennifer Taylor on Saturday and here is a couple of photos of me:


  1. Like my Threeo. Obviously, he's growing on me big time.

  2. Marva, I think he's cute too! You don't get to see such a combination of animals every day.

  3. Does Threeo have brothers and sisters? I think my Cornish piskie, selkie and sea monster would get on well with them. I want one for my own. :~) Love you picture Lawna. Barbara, you look lovely at your book signing. You have such a wonderful smile.

    Best of luck to both of you.


  4. Hi Lawna. Still can't get over your creative imagination. What fun. Good luck with the book. And Barb, your signing looked like a great event. Cheers to your new book.

  5. Charlie, thanks for visiting. I agree that Lawna has a very wild imagination!!

    My book launch had about 20 people who came into the lobby and saw me at the table. You couldn't miss me. I made flyers for them to put up, but they didn't so that's why no one knew about it. Still, it was in my own building, so it was familiar and fun!!

  6. Love, love, love character interviews and Threeo was especially entertaining! Thank you for sharing and good luck with your book - it sounds great. I'm looking forward to reading more about the color changing moons. Very original. :o)

    Barbara - where was your launch? I still can't wait unti Friday. I'm calling it "Jennifer Taylor payday." :o)

  7. Lawna, it's always fun to see Threeo; how nice to have a chimera character who is caring and heroic.

    Barbara, thanks for sharing your launch photos. Great blow-up of your cover.

  8. Nancy, Thank you!!! I'm wondering that myself, Lawna.

    Today is your Book Launch day so good luck to you too!!

  9. Michelle, thank you for visiting and your comment tickled me all day yesterday!! I'm looking forward to your review.:)

    My first book launch was in the lobby of my apartment complex. They were very nice and I had a good time.

  10. Barbara, thank you for visiting and for your wonderful comment.:)

    I got the poster on VistaPrint. You can get a poster of anything there if you are looking to get your own. I bought the poster board and attached it. It's very easy!
