About the Author


Louise Courey Nadeau, born and raised in Montreal, Canada, wife and mother to two girls and two boys is the creator and author of Magelica’s Voyage, Magelica’s Voyage: The Rescue and Magelica’s Voyage to the Land of the Fairies; an adventure/fantasy trilogy about a young girl on Earth who suddenly grows wings at the age of 12 and sets out on a voyage to discover who she is and where she comes from. Empowered by her Chosen Mother to follow her heart, Magelica and her fun and wacky friends learn that following your dreams is no easy task! Called upon to connect peoples and worlds, and bring balance and harmony, Magelica discovers that the greatest enemy is fear, but realizes that it is no match for courage, believing in herself, and love, the most powerful magic of all. Author, mother, wife, Founder and CEO of Magelica Inc., former marketing and advertising executive, a tireless fundraiser for many charities, a painter, and gardener, Louise’s passions keep growing. Louise’s dream is to create a bond with children and their caregivers around the globe, and make a real difference by entertaining them with exciting stories that stimulate their imagination, and help them discover the power of their own magic. Books are just the beginning. She is simply getting started! “Through life’s trials and tribulations, I always believed I could. With the Magelica book series, my own beliefs, courage, determination and resolve have been tested over and over. Believing I can, has kept me going! My goal is for young girls to be empowered to grow up strong, positive and powerful, and for young boys to have the self-confidence to support girls in their goals, thereby creating a new gender balance for a new generation. “The children of today, will grow up to be the parents of tomorrow. By inspiring them now, the ripple effect will eventually change the world.” “Magelica’s Voyage is inspired by my life, my family, and the special people and places I love”, says Courey Nadeau. “All of the characters in the story, including Magelica are reflections of the person I am- the wacky part, the funny part, the philosopher, the teacher, the caretaker, the chosen mom, the giver, and of course the dreamer. What would Magelica do, I often ask, and I get the answer. When you fly with Magelica, the possibilities are endless and there is magic all around.” To learn more about Louise Courey Nadeau please visit Magelica’s Voyage website at You can also follow Magelica on FB, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest.

Hazardous Ways to Gain Attention Towards Your Newly Released Book & Last Stop

Whether you are a traditionally published author or not, there needs to be great thought in how you’ll promote your new book and a plan in place well before it is released into the wild. UnknownIt’s sink or swim in the sea of new books released daily, and you’ll need to get creative to merely stay afloat. May I suggest the following ways to possibly gain attention?

Warning: Some or all suggestions may be hazardous to your health.



A) Send up smoke signals. Big puffy ones. Yes, I’m suggesting starting a fire in a safe location, like in your barbecue. Make sure you have a nearby hose and follow proper protocol. And if the fire department is mistakenly called because of all the smoke and comes a-calling, make sure you give each crew member a signed copy of your book and maybe homemade cookies. Secretly hope that the incident makes local news and gets picked up by the Associated Press, goes viral and then you’re asked to appear on The Ellen Show, even if it’s just for your cookie recipe.




B) Sell your first born to finance the hiring of the Goodyear Blimp to appear at an outdoor national event with the cover of your book plastered to its side. Does it have a side? Or as a less costly, but more dangerous option, hire a sky writer. Have them write BUY MY BOOK in the sky while you’re sky diving down as you throw copies of your book to the onlooking crowd while yelling “incoming” and/or “fore” and hope you don’t get fined for littering and that you remember to pull your ripcord.




C) Send a gazillion invitations out to peeps begging them for their participation in a blog tour that you decide to host yourself. Question yourself on this decision hourly. Convince yourself that all of the unanswered invitations ended up in the intendeds’ spam folder and were never seen. Make sure you offer a decent prize to entice readers’ interest, even if you have to sacrifice your monthly food budget to finance the giveaway. Be eternally grateful to all those that do accept your invitation and want to help you get the word out.



So…the last stop on my tour is dedicated to the wonderful bloggers, book reviewers, fellow authors and great KidLit peeps that helped to make the blog tour a success in so many ways. How many, you ask?
