Joy of Witchcraft — In Stores Today!
Everyone’s favorite librarian-witch, Jane Madison, is back at work, running a school for witches. Alas, nothing is going quite the way she planned (but what’s new about that?!?) Here’s what it says on the back of the book:
Sometimes a thunderstorm is just a thunderstorm. But not this time.
Jane Madison’s school for witches is in session, and the first order of business is an intricate Samhain ritual. Alas, in the midst of a sudden, unseasonable deluge, a classic Greek monster is released into the magic circle. Jane succeeds in vanquishing the beast, but only with the assistance of her sworn enemy, the Coven Mother of Washington DC.
Crisis averted, Jane would be perfectly happy to plan her wedding to her astral protector, David Montrose. But how can she look at seating charts when she’s under attack by more monsters, the Coven Mother, and the highest law in the witchy land, Hecate’s Court?
All these disasters can’t be coincidence. One of Jane’s students must be a traitor. But will Jane find the turncoat before she loses everything—and everyone—she holds dear?
You can read Joy of Witchcraft, even if you’ve never read any other Jane Madison novel.
Buy Joy of Witchcraft today! (Amazon Kindle | Apple iBooks | Book View Cafe | CreateSpace Print | Google Play | Kobo | Smashwords) (More links will be coming — most print editions and Nook are being delayed by the vendors; however, I hope to have the problem worked out in very short order!)
Writing Joy of Witchcraft gave me a chance to go back to the first three Jane Madison novels and refresh them, in ways I’ve been longing to do for almost ten years. The result is an Author’s Preferred Edition of Girl’s Guide to Witchcraft, Sorcery and the Single Girl, and Magic and the Modern Girl.
- Updating every page to include contemporary references to real-life places, people, and things. (No more flip-phones for Jane!)
- Tweaking of characters to be more true to personalities in the more recent books. (Neko, in particular, is less stereotypically gay and more…Neko!)
- Modifications to make the magic consistent across all books in the series. (The education system for witches, in particular, is more uniform!)
- Minor grammar and usage modifications.
Is the Author’s Preferred Edition worth your spending extra money, replacing books you already own? Only you can answer that question. But here’s a no-cost way to find out: Girl’s Guide to Witchcraft is available as a free e-book! (Amazon Kindle | Apple iBooks | B&N Nook | Google Play | Kobo | Smashwords).
Download it. Read it. See if you can detect any differences. If you can’t recognize the changes, then great! You’re done with decision-making! If you recognize the changes and you like them, then you’ll have to decide whether to spend $2.99 each for Sorcery (Amazon Kindle | Apple iBooks | B&N Nook | Google Play | Kobo | Smashwords) and Magic (Amazon Kindle | Apple iBooks | B&N Nook | Google Play | Kobo | Smashwords). Print versions of all three books will also be updated within the next couple of weeks, as the vendors make new stock available in their stores.
I’m thrilled to be sharing Jane with you again. I hope you enjoy the new offerings!
