Ghosts, Witches, and Haunted Houses

Hello dear reader,

I’m so excited that my new SpellSight series is about to be unleashed upon the world. Book of the Dead stars Laura, the witch from the GhostWriters series, and also brings back Jackson and Kate, as well as Eden the Egyptologist and the Psychic Coven from Temple of Ghosts. 👻

Here’s the story:

As a hereditary witch, Laura Device was raised to trust the deities.

But what happens when they can’t be trusted?

The high priests of ancient Egypt have vowed to protect one of the most powerful weapons on Earth—a collection of spells known as the Book of the Dead. For thousands of years, it’s been safeguarded, but Laura learns of a terrible plot to steal the artifact.

Job Jacobs, a sexy necromancer with a dark past, is Laura’s best chance of keeping the Book from falling into the wrong hands.

Unfortunately, he’s also her ex.

Embroiled in a conspiracy where nothing is as it seems, Laura and Job must overcome their differences.

Will they succeed? Or will an unexpected enemy seize the Book, putting the world in peril?

Book of the Dead is available for pre-order!

👻

My inspired-by-true events tale about the restoration of a haunted house gone wrong is also up for pre-order. This spooky mystery will be released from Flame Tree Press in time for Halloween (or Samhain, for the witches out there).

It was the perfect opportunity…or so she thought. When Terri Foxworth is hired to spend a year restoring a crumbling manor house, she believes she’s hit the jackpot. She moves in with her young daughter and high hopes for the project’s success. As the restoration begins to go terribly wrong, she realizes dark forces won’t let her leave the house until its horrible secrets are revealed.

This job could very well be the death of her.

👻

And, finally, some GhostWriters news. Oracle of Ghosts, the seventh book in the series, is up for pre-order, and will be released in November. If you haven’t read the series yet, now is the perfect time, as you can snag the first three ebooks for 40% off the cover price!

Calling all writers! My online course on Getting Published begins on September 14th. In this workshop, I’ll walk you through the different publishing options. Learn how to write an effective query letter, how to pitch to agents and editors, and how to self-publish the right way. There’s absolutely no conflict of interest – since I’m not running a publishing company, I have no hidden agenda. Even better, this class supports a fabulous independent bookstore, and it’s on Zoom, so you can take it from anywhere in the world. You can register for the class here, but you need to scroll to the bottom of the page.

Interested in other classes? I’m doing my best to keep this page up to date.

1 part newsletter, 1 part unnerving updates,
2 parts sneak peeks of new projects.

    You have been productive! Looking forward to the new series. I love a good witchy story. And I must say, I’m not sure the deities can always be trusted.
