Girl’s Guide to Witchcraft is one of my most popular books. It tells the story of a librarian who finds out she’s a witch. Along the way, we meet Jane Madison (the librarian), her familiar, her best friend, her doting grandmother, her crazy mother, and her Imaginary Boyfriend (the library patron she has a mad crush on.)
We also meet her warder, David Montrose. David is Jane’s astral protector, assigned to keep an eye on her magical workings. He shows up in a bad mood, and things go downhill from there.
Through the years, I’ve speculated about why David is in such a bad mood. Later books in the series make it clear that he has a lot on his plate, including political machinations that Jane can’t imagine. The more I contemplated David’s character, the more I realized he needed to tell his story — including his encounter with Jane. Thus, The Library, the Witch, and the Warder was born.
Jane and David only share half a dozen scenes in their first books. Each has a fulfilling life outside the scope of the other. But the more I thought about those shared lives, the more I realized Girl’s Guide and LWW needed to be published together. Readers can flip between the stories. They can search for the same words of dialog and read the common scenes from each character’s perspective. They can get two books for not much more than the price of one.
