I admit that of all the supernatural beings, I have a thing for witches over everything else. Swish a wand, a little incantation, and BOOM! Laundry is done. Food is made. Whatever was broken is now fixed. Okay, so that’s just the domestic side of things. I’m sure we’d all come up with more useful, if not somewhat nefarious spells. The person who leaves shopping carts to bang into other cars when the return cart area is RIGHT THERE? Yep. That car would get ALL the dings.
So yeah, I guess you’d say I’d be a good witch. Nothing too dark. Well, except for the karma bus. I’d probably cast a spell for some people to ride that in the worst stop & go traffic for quite a while.
So with my love for witches, it’s no surprise that I’ve written a book—my first, actually—that is about witches. THE BOOK OF LOST SOULS is available for a free download for a VERY short time as part of a promo. Disclosure? You have to sign up for my newsletter to download it.
THE BOOK OF LOST SOULS isn’t the only book you can download, though. And, disclosure, you’ll have to sign up for those authors’ mailing lists, too.
Here’s a link to the promotion (but come back to this page, I have even more recommendations for books, movies, and TV shows for all you fellow witch fans)
But hurry! The promotion ends May 13th. After that, you won’t be able to download any of the books.
Here’s the rundown on THE BOOK OF LOST SOULS:
When teen witch Ivy MacTavish changes a lizard into her date for a Halloween dance, everything turns to chaos. And when no one is powerful enough to transform him back except Ivy, it sparks the rumor: Like father, like daughter. Ivy has heard it all before – that her father, who left when she was seven – was involved with the darkest of magic.
Making the rumors worse, someone uses an evil spell book to bring back two of history’s most nefarious killers. Ivy’s got a simple plan to set things right: find the real dark spell caster, steal the book, and reverse the spell. No problem! But she’ll have to deal with something more dangerous than murderous spirits that want her and her friends dead: the school’s resident bad boy and hotter-than-brimstone demon, Nick Marcelli. Nick’s offering Ivy more than his help with recovering the missing book – he’s offering her a way to ditch her scaly reputation as a lizard-lover. Demons are about as hard to handle as black magic, and as Ivy soon discovers, it’s going to take more than a lot of luck and a little charm if she wants to survive long enough to clear her status as a dark witch, get a warm-blooded boyfriend, and have her former date back to eating meal worms before the week’s end.
You can skip the promo if you’d like to support me and buy the book instead (no signing up for a newsletter):
