BLOG TOUR! Mystics and Mayhem series by A.J. Meyers


At the Other End of Something Witchy:
My name is Ember Blaylock.  Welcome to the World of Weird—better known as my life.

It wasn’t always like this.  I was once a normal high school senior, just filling out college apps and trying to stay sane long enough to get out of Moonlight, Missouri.  Preferably before I ended up in a straight-jacket out of sheer boredom. 

At first, my only problems were my increasingly unwanted ability to see the dead and my desperation to remove the stalker known as my ex-boyfriend from my life.  Somewhere along the line I must have pissed off the Bad Karma Fairy.  Maybe I stepped on the wrong toadstool or peed in Loki’s personal swimming pool—I really don’t know.  All I do know is I’m about to have the worst week of my life.  Maybe the worst week of any teenager’s life.  Ever.

All because of a dead guy.

From the second pale, too-hot-to-be-real Nathan Ashley stepped out of the wreckage of his mangled sports car, my life spiraled into complete and utter chaos.  One minute, I'm quasi-normal, the next I’m being kidnapped by a vampire, I’m having weird, creepy powers sprout up out of nowhere, and I’m running from a demon who wants to get more familiar with my anatomy…or kill me.  Again.  Yeah, did I mention he's done it before?

Anybody know if those straight-jackets come in pink?

At the Other End of Something Wicked:
Welcome back to the World of Weird!  I’m Ember Blaylock, and I’ll be your guide through this treacherous—sometimes downright deadly—world I call my own.  Because if you thought our last trek through my reality was a rollercoaster ride, you ain’t seen nothing yet.

I thought I was going to get my life back.  I swore off all things witchy.  I lied to everyone I cared about.  I was even dealing with the nightmares that plagued me every night—souvenirs of my first foray through this not-so-wonderful world of mine.  Seriously, if the World of Weird doesn’t leave you with your fair share of issues, nothing will.  I really thought I could go back to being a normal senior in high school.

I was so wrong.

Between my doubts about giving my heart to my vampire boyfriend, uncovering a whole new set of secrets and lies, and seeing my old friend Jack every time I turned around, there was nothing ‘normal’ about my life. 

And if that wasn’t enough to keep a girl on her toes, Moonlight, Missouri just got its very own serial killer.  A real psycho who seems to think it’s fun to turn his victims into Ember clones—and this creeper isn’t working alone.  He’s got help.  The witchy kind.  Sucks to be me, huh?

And you thought just surviving high school was tough…

Buy Me!


AJ MyersAuthor Bio...
I’m a prolific Paranormal Romance author who started writing for my daughter in 2008 when she ran out of vampire series to read. I'd never written a book before that, but by the time I finished that book for her I had the fever. I've been doing what the nagging voices in my head tell me to do ever since. I work full time, run a family, and still manage to put out two novels a year. To hear my husband tell it, I type in my sleep!

What's It Like to Date a Vampire?

Hi!  My name is Ember Blaylock, the narrator and eternal victim of the twisted mind of AJ Myers, the author of the Mystics & Mayhem series.  Yeah, the hag (God, I hope she’s not reading this!) has already released two books she had no business writing, and is already plotting new and unusual ways to make my life a living Hell.  Seriously, this chick needs to get a hobby or something!

Anyway, thanks to AJ telling my life story like it’s some form of entertainment, I’ve been getting some interesting fan mail.  I love how they always start out.  It’s always something like, ‘You are so awesome!’ or ‘If I was a witch, I’d want to be just like you!’  But in the end, it always turns into a ‘What’s it like to date a vampire?’ questionnaire.  Guess that’s to be expected, huh?

Since I don’t really feel like answering all those letters, I’m going to address a few of the questions these vamp groupies keep asking and save myself some time.

Ok, so the first question comes from some chick named Wendy in Washington—who actually put her picture in the envelope and asked me to give it to my boyfriend.

Wendy:  What does it take to get a vampire to bite you?

MeReally?  What kind of question is that?  Okay, not that I have the first clue why someone would willingly let a vampire mark them, but I guess just bleed in front of him.  You know, cut your finger and ask him to kiss it and make it better?  That would probably do the trick.

BUT!  Before you do something stupid, you’d better make sure this guy likes you.  Vampires only mark the donors they want to keep.  That means if he doesn’t want to keep you, you might end up in a shiny box in a deep hole.  Just sayin’!

Our next question is from Carrie from California—who irritated the hell out of me by asking me to give Nathan her number. 

Carrie:  So what do you feel right before he sinks his fangs in you?  Is it like euphoria?  Or like ‘Holy crap!  This is going to hurt!’  Or ‘Man, I ate onions today!  Oh, God!  Does my blood taste like onions?!’

Me:  Oh.  My.  God!  Seriously, where do these people come up with these things?  Okay, what does it feel like right before a vampire bites you?  It’s terrifying, that’s how it feels.  And yes, when those T-Rex teeth sink into your neck, it hurts!  But once he starts drinking… Well, never mind.  Telling you would only encourage you, so I’ll leave that one alone.

Our next vampire groupie is Tina from Texas—who sent not only her address, but a key to her house.  Do these people not know who they’re dealing with?

Tina:  Can he really make you feel whatever he wants you to?  Does he ever make you feel anything…interesting?

Me:  Yes, he can—but he doesn’t dare because I have my own little set of abilities, and I will set him on fire the next time he tries that crap!  And, trust me, Nathan doesn’t need some vampy mind tricks to make me feel anything ‘interesting’.

Okay, now this next one from Marilee from Mississippi wasn’t so bad—it actually made me laugh.  The fact that it came with an actual vial of blood addressed to my boyfriend?  Not so much.

Marilee:  So when you go on a date and you want to watch an awesome vampire movie, does he laugh through the whole thing?

Me:  Actually, I’ve watched a vampire movie with Nathan before.  And yes, he laughed all the way through it.  He also rooted for the vampire to eat the hero.  And in Nathan’s case, it’s infectious.  By the time it was over, I was laughing and rooting for the vamp right along with him.

Now, this last one is from Anna from Alaska.  This one took the cake for me.  The other girls sent blood, phone numbers, addresses, house keys.  This one sent a pair of red lace panties.  Yeah, she’s a skank.

Anna:  Does Nathan prefer silk sheets or Egyptian cotton?  Just want to be sure he’s comfortable when he gets here.

Me:  I have your address, stupid.

Do you see what I have to deal with?  And all because AJ can’t keep her big mouth shut when I tell her something!  And those are just the letters I got after the first books, Something Witchy and Something Wicked, came out.  I hate to see what kind of ‘gifts’ Nathan receives after AJ’s novella, Eternally, and the third book in the series, Something Wanton, launch.  But if you just can’t resist, go check them out.  At least you’ll be entertained.

And if you fall in love with Nathan, too?  Well, sucks to be you!
