C.J. Geisel "Lowcountry Incantations" An Interview with C.J. Geisel by Jason E. Foss

                                                                                          C.J. GEISEL

                                            "Great Authors have this talent of taking their ideas and passions and expanding it to create amazing stories that the world can relate to.  They selflessly have the Reader in mind making sure they not only learn from their story but they use their creative writing talents to keep them engaged and entertained the whole time as well.  They write about things they are passionate about so when the Reader is locked in to the story they are enjoying every chapter because the Authors passion is felt throughout the story.  Whether it's their love of the country or their passion to open the Readers eyes to the magic of their words they capture the essence of everything they wanted us to feel.  Whether you want to read to escape the realities of the world or to use the Adventure in the book you are reading to start your own Adventure when the book you're reading is finished there are very talented writers that can do this for you.  C.J. Geisel is one of these great Authors.  She let us know what motivated her."

Jason:                                  "What motivated you to write "Lowcountry Incantations"?"


                                             "A number of things inspired me to write "Lowcountry Incantations."  I am so in love with the low country itself, everywhere from Savannah to Charleston.  Every time I visit, I feel like I'm home.  There is so much rich history in these places and I wanted to make sure to at least pay tribute to the history and the culture.  Secondly, I went through an experience of abuse in my past that really opened my eyes to psychopathy and mental health in general.  I find Psychology fascinating and wanted to make that a main theme in my story.  Last, but certainly not least, I wanted to shine a light on the plight of the pit bull breeds (also nicknamed "bully breeds").  I wanted to show everyone just how beautiful and sweet they are, and also how mistreated and misunderstood they are."

Jason:                                   "What characteristic of Quinn's can you relate to the most and why?"


                                               "Quinn's character is very loosely based on myself.  Although, she may be a bit thinner than I am!"

Jason:                                     "For your fans and book lovers briefly describe "Lowcountry Incantations".


                                                ""Lowcountry Incantations" is a story about many central themes in life- love and trust.  It incorporates elements of crime, magic, and Psychology.  I wanted to make the book relate-able while still bringing in a world of magic and mystery.  In giving the story a first person narrative, it offers the reader a deeper insight into Quinn's thinking and insecurities.  I wanted to make my audience think, "Hey, I know what that feels like!"

Jason:                                     "Are you working on another book and if so what can you tell us about it?"


                                                "I am currently working on the next book in the series, titled "Lowcountry Convictions."  Without giving too much away, most of the characters return to solve another crime, helping out another girl in need."

Jason:                                     "For those that want to read your book what is the easiest way to buy "Lowcountry Incantations"?"


                                                 "The easiest way to purchase my book is through Amazon, linked here:


                                     "It is available in paperback and e-book, and is free to those with Kindle Unlimited."


                                     "C.J. Geisel was motivated by love for the low country itself.  My favorite thing about this great Author is how she wanted to make the book relatable while still bringing in a world of magic and mystery.  So she gave this book a first person narrative.  I love this because it shows how this amazing Author doesn't write for herself.  She really cares about the Readers.  She wants to make sure they are getting their money's worth and she wants them to feel that the book is specially tailored for them.  That care in the storytelling is exactly why people always like to find the Authors next book.  Because it is hard to write something that makes a person feel like the book is exactly what they were looking for but when you are thinking of the Reader while you are writing it the Readers can feel it.  They can sense it as they eagerly turn to the next page and the page after that.  With the care and the passion that this book was made with you are not only going to get lost in this great story but you will also be entertained.  Click on the link above and buy "Lowcountry Incantations"."
