Blog Tour, Guest Post, & Giveaway: Rivulet (Jamie Magee)

Rivulet by Jamie Magee
Expected publication: October 7, 2013

Unfathomable forces have always contested Genevieve Indiana Falcon, known as Indie. The curse of her cold touch entraps her just as the grief ignited in her past torments her. Yet, her mysterious ability to dream while awake saturates her in the belief that she was not always anguished. There is hope that one day a true peace in her soul can be found.
Foolishly, Indie assumes she has contained her life in an odd balance, and she cherishes the visions she sees of the enigmatic boy that held her in a lost time, but can never reach. She grieves for a life she fears she'll never possess, and that grief is a weapon she uses against her aunt who stands between her and her inheritance.
Weeks away from her twenty-first birthday, the date where she would assume control over her family legacy, a night terror robs Indie of the balance she was clinging to. Like the dream she had before she lost her family, it predicts a fatal catastrophe on the horizon. The fight between life and death, good and evil, began the moment her thundering heart awoke her.
Everything changed after that dream. The one thing that keeps her curse at bay is stolen, and then the enigmatic boy arrives in the flesh. Face to face with her fiery born-again lover Indie realizes that the only way she can prevent the tragedy before her is to surrender everything she was, is, and could be.
Can she bend the laws of nature and fight the improbability that fire and ice could ever be one? As far as Indie is concerned, there is not a myth, spoken fate, or curse that is stronger than her stubborn desire to have it all ... including him.


Jamie Magee has always believed that each of us have a defining gift that sets us apart from the rest of the world, she has always envied those who have known from their first breath what their gift was. Not knowing hers, she began a career in the fast paced world of business. Raising a young family, and competing to rise higher in that field would drive some to the point of insanity, but she always found a moment of escape in a passing daydream. Her imagination would take her to places she’d never been, introduce her to people she’s never known. Insight, her debuting novel, is a result of that powerful imagination. Today, she is grateful that not knowing what defined her, led her on a path of discovery that would always be a part of her.


When I first starting writing, I found myself reading blogs of other writers wondering if they felt the way I did about this craft, or if I was alone in the obsession I was experiencing.

I remember reading about ‘muses’ and how authors often felt haunted by their characters. I would smile because I too felt haunted. Of course, that haunting was more like a song that you could not get out of your head, or like being locked deep in a daydream, or even writing so fast that my fingers ached and I realized that the entire day had vanished while I was dancing with the fictional beings that bring fire to my soul.

Little did I know that my muses were breaking me in slowly. Being haunted took a new reverence with the creation of Rivulet. Dare I say I was slightly tormented by my muses?

Like anyone, some nights I dream in more detail than others, but all in all I am a regular sleeper, no odd abnormalities had ever occurred in my life before. That all changed in November of 2012. For no reason at all, I had a night terror. It is hard to explain the intensity of that dream in a short post, but let me tell you that I have never known fear until that dream. I have never felt my heart pound as fiercely or even comprehended the saying “fight or flight” properly before that night.

I researched the topic trying to understand why, for no reason, at my age, this dream sprung to life. I have a VERY happy life, so I was worried—really worried. There were countless blogs on the topic, and in the end I finally settled on the idea that the dream was simply caused by stress. (Funny how you are usually the last person that knows you are indeed stressed!)

The best way I have found to comprehend emotions clearly is to write them down, to express them openly with words, even analogies. I decide to use this dream to create a story, or maybe even outline one and see where that topic led me.

After the first chapter of Rivulet was written, I left my wandering concerns behind and fell into the love story that Genevieve Indiana Falcon had to tell me. I’m sure by me telling you this story was spawned out of fear may lead you to believe that it is a dark and twisted story, but it is not. It encompasses the emotion of fear at times, but overall the characters overcome fear and choose to fight for what they can’t live without. Passion.

I sincerely hope that in the future my muses find a more subtle way to tell me to write a story down! At the same time, I know that without that dream, those few short moments where I was able to walk a path that was not mine, this story would not be here today.

I’m so excited to share it with all of you!

It was great to be here today! Thank you so much for having me!

  3. Jamie Magee's intricately woven web of souls continues with the introduction of the icy Indie. Genevieve Indiana Falcon has had a difficult upbringing, made even harder with her uncle's new wife, Mrs. Rasure. It's Indie's tight knit group of friends that helps her through her darkest hours and keeps the cold from consuming her. A certain lavender haired friend gives Indie a priceless gift that becomes Indie's touchstone. Until it's red hot owner wants it back. The story continues as a nightmare comes to life and Indie finds out people aren't who they seem, and that the past has a tendency to find itself in our present lives again.
    Jamie Magee has outdone herself with this installation to her web of souls series. Unique plot lines, beautifully written characters, and a fiery, passionate love story that can melt the thickest of ice will have readers clinging to their arm rests in anticipation while eagerly turning the pages of Rivulet. Best of the series, or a great point to start reading her books if you have yet to start. This is a must read.

  4. Rivulet is a beautiful book. It is packed with dazzling, sharp imagery and setting, lovable characters, and intense, action packed plot. Jamie Magee is a master at creating intriguing, multi-faceted worlds in which the reader can't help but wish to take part. Passion, love and hope rule this lovely story and you won't be able to put it down.

  5. "Rivulet" sounds like an incredible book! I would love to win a copy! My preference is gifted through Amazon, as I am highly addicted to the Amazon Kindle app, but if that's not an option, would love it in ePub as I only have a Kobo right now. Thank you very much for the chance! :)
