Most, if not all of our authors, have made their way home from the conference. Of course, they’re home just in time to get ready for Thanksgiving in another week and a half as well as the rest of the holidays shortly after that. The next few weeks will be busier than normal, including an extra email or two next week due to the free book week and another one the week after due to Cyber Monday sales. 

It’s that time of year! ​​

But it’s time to tell you about this week’s new releases! I have 5 amazing books launching this week and the first of those released today. What a great way to start the week!

…The Grand Coven has shown up to stop him.

Among them, the witches who killed my parents…

Is there a connection between the Grand Coven, my parent’s death, and this strange lady of the lake?
