BHSV – Cullen Seabourne Guest Post + Copy of "Blood Challenge" by Eileen Wilks Giveaway!

52 Lovely Comments!
 
Bookish-Haven-Summer-Vacation-Banner

Hey.  My name’s Cullen Seabourne.  Eileen asked me to do this blog thing for her—something about edits and a deadline, which means her brain isn’t working too well at the moment, and she doesn’t have time.  I said sure, no problem.  I’m only in the middle of a war, trying to find a cheap way to shield tech from magic, newly married  and a new father, so sure, I’ve got plenty of time to blog about summer.
            That’s what this is supposed to be about.  Something to do with summer.  But you already know all about summer.  Right now you’re either complaining about how damn hot it is or how it won’t stop raining or how it hasn’t rained.  You’re wishing you could go to the beach or the mountains or that some guy would call.  Or, if you’re a guy, you’re thinking about how last night went and how—shit, Eileen says I’m not supposed to write about sex.  How do I talk about summer without talking about sex?
            Never mind.  You don’t want to hear about summer anyway.  It’s hot.  It’ll stay hot awhile, then get cooler and we’ll call that fall.
            What you want to hear about is magic.  And I’ve got plenty to say about that.
            Eileen tells me you live in a realm almost exactly like mine, except that it’s really low on magic and there aren’t any lupi.  Big surprise.  Since mine is the only realm with lupi, I kinda knew that. Now, since you live in a low-magic realm, I know something about you.  Either you’re convinced that magic doesn’t exist and people who think it does are Looney Tunes, or you’re convinced it does exist and you can find great spells on the Internet.
            Stop that.  Just stop it.  First, you’re feeding the smug of the magic-isn’t-real crowd.  Second, do you have any idea how much trouble you can cause?  Sure, you live in a low-magic realm, so odds are 99 to 1 that even if you find a halfway decent spell, it won’t do anything.  But say you hit the magic lottery and the spell works,.  The odds of it doing what you—a completely untrained practitioner—want it to do shoot up to around a thousand to one.
            Magic is not electricity.  If you want to change out the light fixture over the sink, you don’t have to get your mind, body, and soul lined up with all the wiring in the house.  You just have to know about ground wires and shit like that.
            Magic is chaos in search of order.  It’s the balancing force to entropy.  Now, if you aren’t a physicist, you don’t have a clue what that means, and maybe you don’t care, but you aren’t going to understand anything about magic if you don’t understand this, so pay attention.  The first two laws of thermodynamics are the key.  First law:  the energy in a closed system remains constant. It may change form, but the amount stays the same.  Second law: energy always seeks equilibrium.  That’s entropy, and basically it means that things tend to go from highly ordered but unstable to disordered and stable.  Which leads, eventually, to the heat death of the universe.
            Or it would, without magic.  Entropy: order slides into disorder.  Magic: disorder slides into order.  See?
            Magic unbalances closed systems.  It starts out as pure chaos and is drawn into order.  Node energy is the most powerful form of magic—the most dangerous--and the most chaotic.  It gets soaked up by everything around it, becoming one of the elemental magics--Earth, Air, Fire, Water—which then becomes further ordered by whatever absorbs them.  Plants, for example, are the mildest, safest, most-ordered spell components around.  They combine minute amounts of all four of the elemental magics because they use earth, air, sun (fire), and water to grow, but they are not elemental magic.  They’ve ordered it beyond what it was before, so that the magic of a lavender blossom is very different from that in sage.  But it’s all so mild that in low-magic systems like yours, people can explain all the properties of herbs in scientific terms.  Or think they can.
            But even in its mildest, most orderly form, magic retains some of its chaotic nature.  Which means that if you don’t know what you’re doing, you are going to get results vastly different from what you want when you pull a damn spell of the damn Internet.  So don’t do that.  Ever.
            Especially quit looking for love spells, love charms, and all that rot.  They don’t exist.  Unless you’re an elf and able to cast a glamour, that is, and a glamour is not a spell.  It’s an innate ability, and it isn’t really love, anyway.  Attraction, infatuation, sexual fixation, sure.  Not love.  And you can’t do it.  You aren’t an elf.  How do I know that?  Because you’re in such a low-magic realm that even an elf can’t get there, or if he did, he couldn’t leave, and he’d probably kill himself if he had to try and live without magic.  So whoever you are, you aren’t sidhe, and you can give up on the damn love spells.
            It may be that you’re smart enough to be wondering how the hell, if your realm is so closed off to other realms, I could be blogging here on your Internet.  I bloody well don’t know, and Eileen won’t tell me.  It has something to do with her being a writer.  She says writers draw on other realms all the time, but she won’t explain what she means, though she claims it isn’t telepathy.  I bloody well hope not, since telepaths are all crazy.  Which, come to think of it, explains a lot.  She may be fooling herself about that part.
            She wants me to finish this up, which is fine, because I do have other things to do.  Oh, and she wants me to remind you to go buy her damn book or books or whatever.  Someone’s supposed to put up a link for that.
            So have a great summer, even if it is too hot or too rainy or whatever.  And don’t believe what you read on the Internet.

      Thanks for the post and giveaway!
      I've read the first few books of the World of the Lupi series and loved them. The world is so well-developed, I just love it!

    10. This post made me chuckle. I don't think I'll look for spells on the internet. As for summer, it is way too hot here.

    11. We are getting into the heat of summer here in Texas! Thanks for the giveaway!

    12. Kyahgirl says:

      Oh Eileen, thanks for inviting the wonderful and amazing Cullen to chat with us. Very sweet blog post for a guy from another realm.

      I already have Blood Challenge so don't need to be entered in the draw.

      I LOVE the World of the Lupi. Keep up the good work :-)

    13. Birgit says:

      Summer ... in winter I long for it and when it finally rolls around I complain about the heat all the time *sigh*.

    18. buddyt says:

      I love syummer and the heat because we get a relatively dry heat but at the moment I am in the wrong hemisphere for that. It is winter over here and icy ! BBRRRRR

    19. Hey! it's hotter than hell in Mississippi!! The book sounds really good.

    20. lindalou says:

      I live in central Florida and it is HOT! This book sounds wonderful. Thanks for the giveaway!
      lindalou(at)cfl(dot)rr(dot)com

    21. Summer is always a challenge here in Florida, it's finally cooled off a little because we've had some rain this week. I usually spend the summer worshipping the person that invented air conditioning and going outside as little as possible, unless it's to jump in the pool.

    22. Robin says:

      That was a very entertaining post!

    23. JenM says:

      I live in the San Francisco Bay Area where every summer we pray for sun and warmth, but all we get is gray and fog. It's really fun to watch the tourists shivering down at Fisherman's Wharf though.

      I've really got to start Eileen's series. It sounds like something I would love.

    24. Jeanne says:

      Today my holiday are finally starting! yippee♥♥♥ It´s also great weather so I´ll be outside whole day :)

    28. Cathy M says:

      Definitely the strangest summer as far as weather here in California. Had thunder showers two days ago, now today back to blue skies and 80degree weather. Don't mind the cooler weather at all, it just makes it so hard to plan the usual outdoor activities.

    34. Julie says:

    35. I love this kind of books, so I can't even understan why I haven't heard about it yet :P But now it's on my must-read list :P
      mikki-mano@hotmail.com

    36. Oh man... don't even get me started on the summer heat. I live in AZ and we are trying to save money by NOT turning on our AC... well in 110+ weather that is really really really hard. We finally turned it down to 89 after it was 98 in the house (OMG I know) but of course I still carry a floor fan with me wherever I go. But let me tell you, Giveaways and posts like these make it a bit cooler!

    37. Lexi says:

      As a winter girl i am just waiting for some snow. So in the mean time I will just look up some spells on the Internet...oh wait I was just warned against that...guess that leaves me with reading! Here's hoping I will get a new book to read, thanks for the chance!

    38. winnie says:

      Interesting post! Though I like summer time, I am not really a fan of too much heat.

    41. I'm lucky to be living out in country, nothing but fields around me. We get a breeze nearly every day, sometimes much more than a breeze! It's great to sit out on the front porch, feeling the breeze and reading.

    42. I think the weather in my city is pretty crazy- it changes in a heartbeat! luckily it never gets too hot

    46. Great post! Thanks for the giveaway!

    47. Pam S says:

      I'm in South Alabama hot humid summers that are known for its sudden down pours in resemblance to a typhoon lol. It went from draught like to raining almost everyday here- but the heat and humidity generally soak it up. The post was great Cullen sounds like quite a guy lol really liked his personality.

      I grew up on the beach in So. Calif. and got about all the sun I could handle. Now I am an Oregon girl and welcome the misty cool days. There is nothing about this book that I do not want to read. I would love to win a copy and thank you for the giveaway opportunity.

    50. Chacha says:

      This book sounds great and a new author to me. Would love the opportunity to read this. Thank you for the giveaway

    51. I LOVE Eileen Wilks! I only read her prequel novella and 1st novel, but I know I want to read my way through her backlist, because her World of the Lupi series is fantastic! :-D

      Thank you for the great giveaway!

    52. Diane_D says:

      I read the first 2 Lupi novels and a couple of her short stories, and EW moved right onto my favorite authors list. I read FAST, so I usually frequent the library to feed my "addiction", but the whole local library system doesn't have ANY of the rest!!! ... so I'm going to HAVE to hit the bookstore! I'm sure I'll be RE-reading tWotL, so it'll be worth it. P.S. I'd love to win the giveaway, of course!
