They’re here and ready for you to read! At long last, A Pixie’s Promise is available for purchase on Amazon (eBook only until Amazon gets their act in gear), Barnes and Noble, and IndiePub. The eBook is also available on Kobo and iTunes. I recommend that you support your local independent bookstore, where you can order a copy through Ingram. My two favorite bookstores in the Boston area are Porter Square Books and Pandemonium Books and Games, both in Cambridge.
If you’d like a signed copy, my book launch party is at Porter Square Books on November 6th, 7-9pm. That’s right, Election Night, so please vote early and then come hang out and eat cupcakes with me!
Thanks to everyone who helped make this book possible, from my critique group partners to my young beta readers to Dreaming Robot Press, my magnificent publishers. And thanks to my awesome family, who inspire me and put up with all my writing shenanigans. I couldn’t have done it without all of you.
Readercon is coming up in just a few weeks, July 12-15, 2018 at the Quincy Marriott, and I will be there and SUPER BUSY! Here’s my schedule:
10am – I Love It! Now Rewrite It – Salon C – I’ll be moderating this panel and sharing all the gory details on the A Pixie’s Promise / An Elf’s Equations split.
1pm – Broad Universe Rapid Fire Reading – Salon A -Although I’m scheduled for this, I will likely step aside and let other folks read because I have a solo reading this year. But I will definitely be there in the audience, and if there’s time, I’ll have a piece to read.
4pm – Autographs – Come by and get me to sign your copy of A Witch’s Kitchen! You can also do this at various times in the Dealers’ Room, where I’ll be selling copies.
6pm – Witches in Legend and Folklore – Salon C – I’m hoping to discuss some of my inspirations for A Witch’s Kitchen, including the curandera tradition in my family.
9pm – Kaffeeklatch – Come chat with me about witches, cooking, kidlit, Kickstarters, or whatever else strikes your fancy.
10:30 – Reading – Salon A – I’ll be reading primarily from A Pixie’s Promise, but I might just give a sneak peek at An Elf’s Equations! Have a request? Let me know in the comments or on Facebook.
Heads up! Want to win a free eBook copy of A PIXIE’S PROMISE? I’m running three contests, giving you three chances to win!
April 27-29: BAD JOKE CONTEST – Come up with an answer to that age-old question, “Why did the dragon cross the road?”
May 4-6: FAN ART CONTEST – Draw your favorite characters and places from A WITCH’S KITCHEN and post them on my Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram feeds.
May 11-13: FANTASY BAKING COMPETITION – Think no cake is complete without twizzler sea serpents or unicorn horns? Make your fantastic confection and post photos on my Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram feeds.
Contests begin at noon Friday and end at midnight Sunday each week. You may enter as many times as you like. For each contest, one entry will be selected at random to receive a free eBook. Winners will be announced on our Kickstarter campaign page the Monday after the competition (April 30st, May 7th, and May 13th).
So get your creative juices flowing and stay tuned for further developments.
It’s live, folks! You can now order A Pixie’s Promise at Early Bird prices! And if you and/or your child enjoy paranormal mysteries, please consider supporting Twain’s Treasure as well. I thought it was a rollicking good read.
Also, a quick reminder that we’re holding a Facebook Party tonight, 5-7PM Eastern time, when I’ll be reading the first chapter of A Pixie’s Promise on Facebook Live! I hope you can join us.

I’m going to slip on my Jenise Aminoff persona and read a ghost story (that is NOT for kids – PG-13 at best) with fellow BroadUniverse members Elaine Isaak, Trisha Wooldridge, Inanna Arthen, and Elizabeth Black. We will have books for sale, too, some come by for chills and leave with new stories.
