BLOG TOUR - GUEST POST: The Last Enchantress by Scott & Judith Powell

Being nineteen for over three hundred years bites, and being single in New York with magical powers isn't much better.

Eva is trying to live an everyday life in New York. When this fails, she takes a seemingly unmagical job as a translator for a wealthy American family in Spain. Eva cannot stay out of trouble for long as she runs into a friendly but hungry vampire named Louis. Eva feels drawn to this handsome, dangerous stranger who has problems of his own.

Louis's life was just fine until Eva walked into his church. She smells like heaven. Or is it hell, always smelling but never partaking? Surely she is the devil coming to collect on his lost soul.

Birth of The Last Enchantress
Judith Here the co-author of The Last Enchantress.
It was the day the stock market plummeted almost eight hundred points.  I had been writing seriously for over three months and had just gotten the idea for The Last Enchantress when Scott came home with bad news.  The bank he had worked for had let him go.  So I started to gather all my papers off the computer desk, all my research and all my notes. 
Scott stopped me and asked, “Is this the one?” 
I answered, “Yes it is.  This is it.”
“Well then I don’t want you to stop, I want you to write it.” 
“What about looking for a job?”  I asked
“I’ll still look but not when you are on the computer.  The book is the first priority,”  Scott said.
I insisted that he put his resume on Monster.com but he wasn’t sure what good this would do.  I continued to work on the book.  At first I only wrote ten pages a week.  Scott pushed me to write ten pages a day.  While Scott took over cooking cleaning and home schooling our children. 
When I finished he took over and started editing The Last Enchantress.  When he finished our check book was starting to look really bleak.  I turned to Scott and said, “Now you can have a job.”  One hour later a call came with a job offer.  It was just enough money to keep us going. 
Two months later another job offer came, better than the first. This time they found us on Monster.com.  Now over four years later The Last Enchantress is now competed and published as we had envisioned.
