A little sum’in sum’in for my readers.
I’ve commissioned some truly beautiful jewelry for next month’s release of Halfway Dead.
Local artist Kelli Brown is producing sets of bangles with charms based on the tale of Carlie and her magic.
Here’s the cover, by the wonderful Staci Hart:
And here are some color themes for the bangles– this is the first set, without the charms:
Now, you’re asking me– what charms, and why?
Well, the book’s tagline is “Come for the Waffles, Stay for the Magic.” So, these will be added to the bangles as well:
And of course, magic has to have stars, right?
So! Here’s the blurb for the book. Read it, share with friends who love paranormal fiction, and witches, and humor and adventure, won’t you? Then look for the pre-order next month. I’ll pick two winners from the early readers.
Carlie McEwan loves many things.
She loves being a witch. She loves her town of Halfway, NY—a tourist destination nestled on the shores of an Adirondack lake. Carlie loves her enormous familiar, Gus, who is twenty-five pounds of judgmental Maine Coon cat, and she positively worships
her Grandmother, a witch of incredible power and wisdom. Carlie spends her days cooking at the finest—and only—real diner in town, and her life is a balance between magic and the mundane, just as she likes it.
When a blonde stranger sits at the diner counter and calls her by name, that balance is gone. Major Pickford asks Carlie to lead him into the deepest shadows of the forest to find a mythical circle of chestnut trees, thought lost to forever to mankind. There are ghosts in the forest, and one of them cries out to Carlie across the years. Come find me.
Danger, like the shadowed pools of the forest, can run deep. The danger is real, but Carlie’s magic is born of a pure spirit. With the help of Gus, and Gran, and a rugged cop who really does want to save the world, she’ll fight to bring a ghost home, and deliver justice to a murderer who hides in the cool, mysterious green of a forest gone mad with magic.
