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, … Continue reading Witches’ Night Book Promo (and a list of shows and books with witches)

Another Summer Sunday Sampler from THE BOOK OF LOST SOULS. “Great!” Gareth said. “We lost him again. I’ll never get Spike back to normal at this rate! And when I do, he won’t like eating his mealworms.
