Whose Spirit Are You Channeling? (Big Cocks and Broomsticks Hop)

Welcome to the Big Cocks and Broomsticks Giveaway Hop!


It’s Halloween and time to commune with the spirits. As a writer of paranormal, and every other type of erotic romance known to woman, I find the spirit world fascinating. Especially when everyday reality is not exactly working out.

After an exotic summer vacation, I ended up with a health problem and inspiration to write a book. This all led to a fascination with Bob Marley and reggae. After reading on his Facebook site that he helped a fan through more than a few difficult times, I knew I wasn’t alone.

In the ranks of Elvis, he was one of the few people larger than life. So large it’s as if he’s still with us 30 years later. The local grocery store is even selling Bob Marley tea. I believe he lives on through his music and message. As writers, what we create will last forever. Creativity is one of the most powerful forces there is, and when one creator uses what another created to create something new, it’s unstoppable.

I’m reading his biography now, which is full of research material (including Jamaican patois) I can apply to my latest work in progress. I played a CD of one of his concerts, dancing and becoming his creative energy. I’ve had it checked out so long, it’s a wonder Netflix hasn’t come after it. And while doing karaoke recently at RomantiCon, I did one of his songs, dancing and singing the way he did. It was almost as if he was in the room.

Or maybe I’m just weird because I’m a writer…

You asked: So whose spirit would you channel if you could?

I would love to be Minnie Riperton for a day or so. She had the most amazing voice and range! I listen to her now and think what if she had lived....that woman would have taken the world by storm. Imagine, doing karaoke with her voice. Perfect! :-)

Gosh that is a tough choice.
Probably Freddy Mercury, he was such a showman.

Afton Locke said...

Freddy Mercury is definitely larger than life.

I think I would channel Whitney Houston. Her voice was truly amazing. She also had a lot of spunk and zest for life in her younger days!

Afton Locke said...

Yes, Whitney was truly amazing. Was shocked at her early passing.

Meghan said...

I think I would choose Marilyn Monroe because she was so interesting and beautiful.

You know, I could use so much positive energy. I'm going to check out Bob Marley (love his music. I think I would love to channel Edgar Cayce. I'm sure I'd freak out most of my non-reading family, but oh, what a wonderful experience it would be. I could get a cure for my thus far undiagnosed illness. Wouldn't that be wonderful? Thanks for the great giveaway. michelle_willms(at)yahoo(dot)com

Afton Locke said...

Yes Meghan, Marilyn Monroe had a magical quality. Michelle, Edgar Cayce is a great one as well. Hope you find the healing you need.

Well, all of this channeling is working! I got inspired to write a sequel to my Jamaica story. I think it's going to be a menage. Characters can be so demanding.

Jillyn said...

I'd love to channel Edgar Allan Poe. I'm a darker writer, and I could use his brain to pick and gain some inspiration. Thanks for the chance to win!


Afton Locke said...

Jillyn, Edgar Allen Poe wrote some great stories. I recommend watching the movie that acts them out.
