Guest Post and Contest for Witchlanders With Lena Coakley

I was lucky enough to be a part of the book tour for Witchlanders by Lena Coakley, hosted by Kismet Book Tours. I absolutely enjoyed reading this book, it was was not only fascinating but captivating as well. You can read my review for it here, if you'd like.

Today, however, it is an honor and a priveldge to have Lena Coakely on the blog in a special feature of, This or That. So, I'd like for you to join me in making her feel welcome and appreciated. (And I won't hold it against her, that she chose Stephenie Meyer over my beloved Anne Rice. lol.)


Lena Coakley was born in Milford, Connecticut and grew up on Long Island. In high school, creative writing was the only class she ever failed (nothing was ever good enough to hand in!), but, undeterred, she went on to study writing at Sarah Lawrence College. She got interested in young adult literature when she moved to Toronto, Canada, and began working for CANSCAIP, the Canadian Society of Children’s Authors, Illustrators and Performers, where she eventually became the Administrative Director. She is now a full-time writer living in Toronto. Witchlanders is her debut novel.

Witches or Sorcerers?

Witches, of course!

E-Reader or Physical Books?

I’m just about to get my first e-reader, so I’m teetering on the brink. I have no idea how I’ll decorate my apartment without books, though. Right now they are pretty much wall to wall.

Paranormal or The Contemporaries?

Paranormal. I read almost nothing without some sort of “unreal” component.

Team Vampire or Team Werewolf?

Werewolves are sexier.

Series or Stand Alones?

I am the last holdout for stand-alone fantasies!

Anne Rice or Stephenie Meyer?


Day or Night?

I want to be uber-cool and say night, but, really, mornings are my thing. Thanks so much for having me on your blog, Susan!
