Day Three winner--Stephanie!, who commented on!

Day Four of the FIREWALKER Giveaway continues!


“Well, if you remember anything else, let me know,” I said.
“Sure thing. Tell you what, give me a little tongue, and I’ll see what I can think of.”
“You’re a mirror,” I reminded it. “You don’t have body parts.”
“Hey, honey, I can dream.”

I've gotten more email about the magic mirror than any other character! It has the voice of a drag queen and a fixation on sex. It's snarky and loud, with a penchant for bursting into show tunes in the middle of the night. But since it’s saved the day on more than one occasion, Janet lets it live.

Magic mirrors hold incredible magic. They can communicate over any distance with other magic mirrors, and non-magical ones if they can attune to them. They can enhance spells, seek information, and are utterly bound to the mage in whose power it's in at the moment.

Magic mirrors also have Personality.

“All right, keep your pants on," the mirror said. "Or not, if you’re wearing that cute little black satin number.”
I didn’t bother to tell the mirror to shut up. It never listened anyway.

I like to put a little humor in all my books, 'cause I just like to laugh. How do you feel about a humorous side character? Fun? Relieves tensions? Or just gets annoying?

Comment to win!

The mirror sounds like a blast! I would imagine that a mirror would either but the dirty minded character because all of the stuff he sees. Or the biggest narcissist, because let's be honest its all about the mirror!

Can't wait to read more!

I like to have a humorous side character in a book, especially in urban fantasy or the darker paranormals. You need an emotion break every once in a while!

I thin humorous side characters are a necessity! A little levity just adds to the over all experience and gives the reader a nice break. Besides, who doesn't like to smile!

I love The Magic Mirroe. It's amazing. Breaking out in show tunes in the middle of the night is hysterical. I love when there is humor in stories because it gives that needed break in all the chaos and problems.

This mirror definatly sounds like it has personality! I think humorous side characters are fun and can really relieve tensions. That is if they're written right.
