Book Tour and Giveaway: Storiebook Charm (A Spellbound Novel #1) by Melissa Bourbon

Title: Storiebook Charm 
Series: A Spellbound Novel #1 
Author: Melissa Bourbon 
Publisher: Lake House Press
Publication Date: March 9th 2020
Print Length: 216 pages
Genre: Light Paranormal Romance 
From National Bestselling author Melissa Bourbon comes a small town magical story with a heart-stopping hero, a sigh-worthy romance, beautiful writing, and characters that jump off the page. Get ready to be charmed by Storie and Reid, and watch out for the twist!

Storie Bell is a witch. Not the kind that lives in Harry Potter's world. No, she is more like Glinda, the good witch of the North, minus the munchkins and Dorothy. But a witch trying to blend in in a small southern town is no easy feat. She’s grown up believing that mortals and witchcraft don't mix.

Storie thinks the biggest threat to her future—opening The Storiebook Cafe, where happy endings begin— is Reid Malone, the very man she ran away from years before. He seems hell bent on getting in the way of her bookstore’s grand opening. But when a mysterious woman from Storie’s past shows up and makes claims that leave Storie confused, she rethinks her entire future.

Melissa Bourbon, the author of the Magical Dressmaking Mysteries (A Seamless Murder, A Killing Notion, A Custom-Fit Crime, Deadly Patterns), sometimes answers to her Latina-by-marriage name, Misa Ramirez. She gave up teaching middle and high school kids in northern California to write full-time amid horses and Longhorns in north Texas. She fantasizes about spending summers writing in quaint, cozy locales, has a love-hate relationship with yoga and chocolate, is devoted to her family, and can’t believe she’s lucky enough to be living the life of her dreams.

A Bit About Me
by Melissa Bourbon

I have five children, and anyone who knows anything about daycare, knows that by the time I had two, most of my salary as a middle school English teacher went to daycare expenses. I did the most logical thing—I stepped away from teaching to stay home with the kids. I’d toyed with the idea of writing before that. This was years ago, before Young Adult fiction had become a thing. I thought I’d keep my brain actively engaged by writing something my students would like reading.

I wrote a book about a classroom of students who are all on task at the same time. Shocking! It causes a time travel episode, taking them all back to Ellis Island where they have to make their way through in order to get back to the present. I still love this book, though it resides only in a file now.

Fast forward six years and three kids later. My writing had ebbed, but I was ready to get back to it. I started with a character. Before long, there was a family, a setting, and a mystery. That became my first published book. I’ve always written mysteries, but longed to delve into stories that were a little darker. I’m fortunate to be able to write full time now. Those darker stories came in the form of Silent Echoes and Silent Obsessions (combined in the Deadly Legends boxed set) are those books. They are based on urban legends I have always been fascinated with. I hope you’ll find them interesting, too!
