Hi! I’m here on the Miscellaneous Moments blog having a moment (sarcastic laughing time). I wanted to write up something a little different than my usual rambling because, well, it’s such a special darn week. And I wanted to write something book related due to the fact that I’m supposed to be promoting my novel.
First, the title – MacDowell Sisters & AnnaBeth. That’s the name of my novel. The link to buy it is forthcoming.
AnnaBeth is the main character in the book. She inherits her grandmother’s mansion, and all sorts of weird things start happening. She starts hanging out with two old ladies named Vestra and Madeline MacDowell who turn out to be witches. However, they aren’t just regular old witches, they’re fates. They control the lives of pretty much everyone in the town of Fosters Branch.
You might notice that the title isn’t AnnaBeth & MacDowell Sisters. There is a reason for that.
I didn’t come up with the concept of fate being a person. In this case, I pulled the idea from Macbeth. Get it? (MacDowell Sisters & AnnaBeth) – (Dowell Sisters & Anna) = Macbeth. The number of witches in Macbeth? Three.
Here’s a bit on Wikipedia if you are interested in reading more. It’s in the Witchcraft and evil section –http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macbeth
Shakespeare didn’t create the fates either. In Greek mythology, they are Moirae – destiny personified. In Roman mythology, they were Parcae. They always seem to work in threes.
So, that’s the deal with fates and the title of the book. Thank you to Moore for letting me take up some space on the blog.
If anyone wants to buy a copy of the book, here is the aforementioned link –
