PR Special Edition (55): Scott Tracey's Teenage Garage Sale

Poisoned Rationality Special  Edition

Welcome to another Poisoned Rationality Special Edition!   Today we have Scott Tracey, author of the recently released Witch Eyes!

Synopsis:  A boy who can see the world's secrets and unravel spells with just a glance.

Braden's witch eyes give him an enormous power. A mere look causes a kaleidoscopic explosion of emotions, memories, darkness, and magic. But this rare gift is also his biggest curse.

Compelled to learn about his shadowed past and the family he never knew, Braden is drawn to the city of Belle Dam, where he is soon caught between two feuding witch dynasties. Sworn rivals Catherine Lansing and Jason Thorpe will use anything--lies, manipulation, illusion, and even murder--to seize control of Braden's powers. To stop an ancient evil from destroying the town, Braden must master his gift, even through the shocking discovery that Jason is his father. While his feelings for an enigmatic boy named Trey grow deeper, Braden realizes a terrible truth: Trey is Catherine Lansing's son . . . and Braden may be destined to kill him.

If I were going to be hosting a garage sale, all about the things that were of import when I was a teenager...I actually fear the results.

Sarah McLachlan's "Fumbling Towards Ecstasy" cd, or possibly "Surfacing." I seriously think I wore that
out when I was a teenager. Which was really uncomfortable once I realized that her song "Possession"
was about a stalker. And then there was "Building a Mystery" which I absolutely loved and listened to
on repeat for weeks. $1 for both.

A dream catcher I bought as a souvenir for someone (that I never ended up giving them) from a spring
break trip to Florida my senior year. The funniest part was that I bought it at a rest stop less than an
hour from home in Ohio, before we'd even left. $1

The very first DVD player I ever bought (and with my own money no less). I have a huge DVD addiction,
and I would buy movies all the time. $5.

The collection of Buffy posters that lined my walls during my teenage years. No really, there were a lot.
$1 (sorry folks this one is called dibs on by me!)

A deck of tarot cards (in Spanish) that I bought in an independent French bookstore on the streets of Paris. $3

The complete set of Kay Scarpetta novels I had as a teenager, which was the driving force behind wanting to go into forensics for about five minutes. $2

A VHS tape of The Craft, which I'd seen so many times I basically had it memorized. Witches, man. It's always about the witches. $.50

Total value of my adolescence? $13.50. That's pretty accurate, actually...
