Book Giveaway and News About a Short Story


As many of you know, I have a novel coming out in mid-November called VEILED MAGIC. This one's not part of the Baba Yaga series, although it does feature a completely different kind of witch... Veiled Magic is coming out as an eBook only for now, to tide y'all over until WICKEDLY POWERFUL comes out in February.  In fact, Veiled Magic has a very special place in my heart, because it was the book that finally got me my wonderful agent, Elaine Spencer.

What you may NOT know is that the idea for Veiled Magic came from a short story I wrote for The Pagan Anthology of Short Fiction, which came out back in 2008 as a combined effort from Llewellyn and BBI Media (which puts out the Witches & Pagans Magazine, where I now have a regular column, although back then they didn't know me from Adam). Sadly, the book didn't do as well as they'd hoped, and is now out of print. But I happen to have a couple of copies stashed away, and I thought that it would be great to give one away so that one lucky winner would be able to read the short story that started it all. [There are also some very cool stories from my friends Alex Bledsoe and C.S.MacCath, both of whom I met through that project.]

In truth, Veiled Magic would never have been written at all, if so many people hadn't read my short story, Dead and (Mostly) Gone and said, "Hey! You should write a book about that character!" I still love that title (grin). Thankfully, I have the rights to the story, so I will be putting it up online soon at a whopping .99 cents in case anyone else wants to read it. But for now, I'll be giving away a copy of the anthology, plus a couple of little extras. (The cat stays, I'm afraid.)

The book, a broom pen, and a cool postcard.

  2. There's not an option for "All of them. Of course." for the final question about which book one plans to buy...
