main point of view. In the series, the three sisters, Camille, Delilah, and Menolly, are each half fae,
half “something else”. Camille is a Moon witch, who is, with her sisters and their partners, on continuing
adventures to protect her family and friends, both on earth and in Otherworld, from a host of evil.

Moon witch married to three gorgeous husbands, and I’m about to journey through the veils to search
for a long lost legend…
With the war in Otherworld raging, the Queen of Shadow and Night
summons me to her court. Aeval orders me to embark on a hunt through the mists to find an ancient
ally she once knew. I must seek out The Merlin and wake him from his long sleep. But Morgaine and
Bran are along for the journey, and the pair pose a threat to both me and my quest. Now, surrounded
by danger on all sides, I must pray they are allies rather than enemies, as we undertake a perilous search
through the labyrinth of time…
Here’s how YOU can pre-order your copy…
I would definitely recommend reading the previous books in the series first. While each book does have
a bit of a recap, there isn’t enough information (which would have to be considerable, honestly) to
start this far into the story and fully understand all that’s going on. So, if you haven’t started the series,
DEFINITELY pick up WITCHLING and get going!!! I promise, it won’t take you as long as you may think to
get caught up. (Think marathon… order pizza for the family, and get comfy!!)
One way to start… if you haven’t yet… is to WIN a copy of WITCHLING!!!

PRIESTESS DREAMING GOODIE BAG CONTEST
Read this excerpt –
Tanne calmly walked toward the creature. He paused till it noticed
him, then, as it made a beeline for him, he began to back up quickly toward the
impromptu bonfire-in-waiting. The men had been able to gather quite a few
branches from the forest, and had piled the mound of brush and sticks a good
five feet high.
Delilah motioned for Morgaine and Arturo to back up. Mordred and Bran
took a clue and also moved to the side.
As Tanne neared the brush pile, he suddenly dove to the side as the hive-
monster sped up, charging for him. The sound of the buzzing made my skin crawl
and I shuddered, forcing myself to hold my ground.
Up close, the creature was a nightmare of whirling, buzzing wasps. They
formed the vague shape of a giant, seven feet tall at least. A few of the insects
broke off from the hive, probably reconnaissance, scouting ahead for new prey.
Wasps were carnivorous, which told me that the hive-monster most likely ate its
As Tanne dove to the side, Delilah tossed the first firebomb into the
bonfire. It exploded on impact, and the branches burst into flame. The hive-
monster began to rampage—a number of wasps shooting out from the thick of it.
Delilah threw another bomb on the flames and the fire flared, smoke pouring out
over the creature. She tossed the third one for good measure and the resulting
explosion released a massive plume of smoke.
Tanne stepped forward, not close enough to be a target, but close enough
to start singing what I now recognized as the Spell of Unraveling.
The wasps raged. For the most part, they seemed to be trapped within
the construct of the magical body. But, as Tanne’s spell began to work, the
framework holding the wasps together dissipated. The cluster began to separate,
chaotic masses of the insects swarming off. Several of the clumps fell to the
ground, the smoke killing them. Still others scattered, the wasps drunkenly
careening toward the forest.
We backed away. If we could get out of here without being stung, so much
the better. Skirting the scene slowly but steadily, after a few minutes we were far
enough away to chance stopping for a look back.
The fire was still burning brightly but we couldn’t see any sign of the
massive hive. Whatever magic had went into keeping the wasps together was
gone, destroyed by the smoke and the spell.
“Good luck, you little freaks.” Even though I hated wasps—they were
mean suckers—they deserved to be free, answering to their queen, not whoever
had enslaved them.
Another ten minutes and there was no sign of any wasps. Hopefully, they
had a happier future ahead, and we’d gotten off easy. If I hadn’t brought those
firebombs, this could have gone drastically wrong. That many stings—if they’d
attacked us—could easily kill us. And hitting a wasp with a sword or a dagger?
Not so effective.
“We lucked out on that one.” I stared back along the path. “We may not be
so fortunate in the future.”
