Guest Post & Giveaway: Chase Tinker and the House of Magic by Malia Ann Haberman

Today we have a guest post from Malia Ann Haberman, author of Chase Tinker and the House of Magic. Malia is talking about her favorite super powers and which she'd like to have if she could choose. Malia is also offering an ecopy of Chase Tinker and the House of Magic to one lucky winner along with 5 songs of their choice from Amazon, so scroll to the bottom to enter! Here's a synopsis of Chase Tinker:

In Chase Tinker's world, magic, lies and secrets can be a lethal combination...

Thirteen-year-old Chase Tinker can't understand why he has the power to move things with his mind. Besides that, his dad has been missing for over a year, causing his mom to be too upset to pay much attention to her sons, so now he's been busted for shoplifting. As if this isn't enough to worry about, his younger brother Andy suddenly has the ability to stop time. Can things get any crazier? Chase thinks.

Then, a grandfather they thought to be long dead arrives at their door. He wants Chase and Andy to come visit him for the summer so they can learn about their supernatural heritage and why they have magical powers in the first place.

The boys soon find out that Grandfather, along with their cousin Janie, lives on a remote island in the middle of Puget Sound in an out-of-this-world house where fantastic magic can be found in practically every room, stairway and corridor. Chase can't believe their dad has been keeping so much from them.

It's an even bigger shock when Chase learns that all their magic is controlled by a very powerful and mysterious Relic in the attic, and if anything happens to this relic, every bit of Tinker magic will be lost forever. He's even more disturbed when he learns his family has a dark and powerful enemy that is determined to steal all their magic, their house and their relic.

Now Chase must find a way to stop these evil beings, while at the same time figuring out what has happened to his dad, unraveling even more Tinker lies and secrets and not letting on that he has a huge crush on the housekeeper's daughter.

What's The Best Magic Power? by Malia Ann Haberman:

You know, there are so many great magical powers. One of my favorites is teleportation. I love the thought of being able to travel long distances in just a few moments with only a quick thought. Telekinesis is also a fun one. It would be cool to have the ability to move things with my mind. Then I could vacuum and mop the floor while sitting at my computer and writing.

Invisibility, flying, stopping time, shape-shifting, the ability to make objects come to life and super strength are all terrific powers too. In my book, I have several goofy ones, like the ability to conjure almost anything you want from your nose, the ability to turn into a puddle of goo and the power to grow and shrink hair.

But, since I can have only one magical power, I think I'll choose the power to turn either myself or others into any animal. I would definitely use this power for good. Dressed as a mild-mannered librarian I would seek out bullies and people that hurt other people and turn them into hamsters since the world can always use more cute animals and less creeps. :)
