Book Tour and Giveaway: Abracadabra by K. Stevens

Title: Abracadabra
Author: K. Stevens 
Publication Date: October 10th 2019
Print Length: 177 pages
Genre: Paranormal Urban Fantasy 
Magic and mayhem are his middle names. Figuratively. Not literally. He's not sure he even has a middle name, let alone two.

Rod's a trickster by trade, magician by hobby, and thief by night. But when an old friend hunts him down and asks a favor, he can't refuse. Mostly because she'll likely try to kill him before asking again. But also because it presents a very interesting puzzle: to hunt down what a half-elf, magic weapons, and a killer-led cult of shapeshifters have to do with each other.

Lucky for him, Rod has the ability to be in three places at once. The problem? Even he can't always tell which him is the real him.

“I had a couple debts hanging over my head at the time,” I lied. “She promised to wipe the slate clean for me. Eliminate all my Keeper records, settle my debts, things like that. Anything that could make trouble for a thief like me.”

Miles gave in with a slight humming grunt, not trusting my words. Couldn’t blame him; I probably wouldn’t have trusted them either.

“So, she wanted blood in exchange for freedom,” Miles continued, changing the subject. He drew out the vials I gave him earlier and tipped them, watching the dark red liquid slosh around for a moment. “The question is…why?”


“Don’t play dumb,” he sighed, switching his eyes to me. “Did she ever tell you why she wanted the blood?”

I gave a half-hearted shrug and stood, walking back to the dash. “Something about genetics. She’s doing some sort of experiment with marwolaeth genes and needs a wide pool to draw from. To be honest, I stopped listening about five seconds into her theory.”

From an early age, K. Stevens devoured all things magical and mystical. To this day, she hesitantly struggles to keep one foot in reality while the rest of her remains firmly rooted in the fantastic and insane. In 2015, she finally worked up enough courage to share her stories with more than just her family, and was encouraged by the fact that she wasn’t eaten alive for it. She may be the crazy lady that talks to bugs and stares incessantly into the sky, but don’t mind her. She’s just thinking. 

- What is something unique/quirky about you?
When my knuckles were growing in, five on my hands and at least four on my feet never got the memo. Which means that yes, I literally only have two knuckles on my left hand and three on my right (counting the thumb knuckle). Plus, if you look at my feet two of the toes on each foot are still baby toes.

- What are some of your pet peeves?
Absolutism, Dismissive remarks, and chewing loudly.

- Where were you born/grew up at?
Texas and Texas. Pretty much stayed local my entire life (so far).

- If you knew you'd die tomorrow, how would you spend your last day?
I’d do whatever I had to do to get a decent handful of cash and start traveling the world. Don’t know how far I’d get before the dreaded ‘tomorrow’, but I’d go to England first and then travel from there so at least I’d hit one of my ‘must haves’ for a world tour.

- What kind of world ruler would you be?
A benevolent one! I think. Honestly, if my RP style is any indication of my inner character, I’d be a world leader that would be tolerant of issues to a point; I’d do what I could to make sure the world could get on without my constant intervention, have rules in place to have everyone working towards a common goal or purpose, let different sections of the world carry out justice in their preferred way and make sure everyone respected everyone else’s rules of politics and procedures. But after a point (or certain annoyance level), I tend to ‘take care of’ those NPCs that are causing more problems than I want the system to I guess I’d be a sort of Chaotic Good/Neutral world ruler? Maybe? That’s a better answer than an evil dictator, right? lol

- What do you do to unwind and relax?
Yoga, Video Games (Fallout, KOTOR, Assassin’s Creed, Sonic, and Diablo), read something entertaining, concept designs. Though depending on the situation, some of these cause me to unravel more than unwind...

- When did you first consider yourself a writer?
Probably when I started writing.

- Which of your novels can you imagine made into a movie?
I’d love to imagine all of them made into a movie, but I’d love to see the visuals if someone tackled Abracadabra. That could be so. Much. Fun.

- As a writer, what would you choose as your mascot/avatar/spirit animal?
...Probably a squirrel.
