FACING THE TORMENT Release Week: Dead Drunk

Peyton always struggled with her own personal demons, but when asked on a case where she had to deal with the demons of it’s former resident, it was another level of difficulty. This case saw the struggles of Olivia too who was coming to realise that the practical side of ghost hunting left a lot to be desired for her own personal safety. We’re going back to Eileen and Janice, the mother and daughter who have a strained but accepting relationship, as they recount what happened during that time in their lives. Pick up your copy of Dead Drunk in just a couple of clicks: mybook.to/DeadDrunk Janice stepped into her mum’s house and caught a whiff of tobacco. Freezing, her heart thudded in her che

FACING THE TORMENT Release Week: The Beginning

When Peyton made up her mind about wanting to open up a business to hunt ghosts and protect people, she was off to a slow start. She spent time looking for things that could indicate ghostly activity and ended up going to The Grand Hotel where she was met with a couple who were on the opposite side of the scales to each other where she was concerned. She found herself not only fighting to rid the spirit but fighting for acceptance and respect. Now, after a newspaper article that almost had the hotel going down the drain, they revisit the old haunt for a night away and an interview with the couple, Nick and Jenny. If you fancy picking up The Beginning to read now, just click here. The Grand H

FACING THE TORMENT Release Week: The Room of Arches

The Room of Arches was one of my favourite novellas to write. The thing was mapped out in my head from the image of the room in the basement and went from there. Christine was struggling with her home and the secrets it held and Laura, her best friend (not unlike Olivia in some ways!) was protective. There was a whole mystery element to this one too and Peyton just knew that she couldn’t walk away after hearing so many voices. She was learning to hone her skills and during this time, she used a lot of self-reflection to think about how far she’d come and where she’d like to go. It was a cornerstone in her life. Today, we’re going back to the house that Peyton visited in The Room of Arches as

FACING THE TORMENT Release Week: The Darkness Within

Today we’re going back to revisit an old friend. Adele is one of the people who has been in Peyton’s life for a long time, alongside Olivia. She’s strong and steadfast and even when things got tough in The Darkness Within, she stuck around. We’re taking a look back at everything Adele experienced in her home when Peyton entered for the first time and woke the darkness that lay within, and her friendship with Peyton. Pick up your copy here. Curling her legs beneath her on the sofa, Adele relaxed with a coffee in hand. She glanced around the room. The white furniture in her living room glistened, both asserting her personality and driving the darkness away. She smiled. It wasn’t so long ago wh

FACING THE TORMENT Release Week: The Leak of Madness

The Leak of Madness was released in 2018 and marked the first installment of the Soul Seekers Series. It’s so hard to believe we’re almost at the end! Facing the Torment will be arriving on the 6th of August and I can’t wait to share it with you all but for now, I thought it would be interesting to take a look back on some of the characters from the series and their take on everything that happened. The Leak of Madness was the start of it all, but it wasn’t the first novella written. As I delved further into the series and got to thinking about Peyton as a character, I knew she needed a backstory, one that would help the readers understand who she is and where she’s come from. This is her be

A Witchling's Guide to the Retrograde From Hell

Just kidding—saying it's from hell is probably bad karma, not to mention a little dramatic. But, all in all, it's no secret that 1) Mercury is in retrograde right now, and 2) this one's a doozy. As we covered back in May (Holy Retrograde!), the reason this one is so crazy is because, in actuality, there are five planers in backspin mode. You read correctly. Five. We might've since forgotten, but Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn have been in retrograde since before summer started, and won't spin direct until early Autumn. Speaking of drama, leave it to this month's Mercury retrograde to turn up the theatrics and melodrama. Spanning from July 7th to August 1st, Mercury takes a long journey from it's

The Celtic Month of Holly

In the Celtic Tree Calendar, or the Beth-Luis-Nion Calendar, we celebrate the roles of various plants in nature magic and rituals. Although rumored to be utilized for centuries, this lunar-based calendar was first hypothesized in the 19th century and is now used by witches to give form and structure to their magic. The Holly tree, or Tinne, is celebrated from July 8th to August 4th. One of the hardiest evergreen plants to exist, the Holly tree represents masculine energy, firmness, and perseverance through difficulties. In fact, the Holly's wood is so robust, that in ancient times it was used to craft carriage wheels and spear shafts. To this day it's also used in protective magic. Here are

The Starlight Chronicles Character Zodiac

Illustration by LyingFawn As someone who is obsessed with astrology, I couldn't resist giving my characters zodiac signs—and I love how well each character matches up to their sign's personality traits. Whether you believe in astrology or not, it's still fun to compare each sign and their compatibility. Which character shares the same zodiac sign as you? Lucy Maisfer Sign = Scorpio Birthday: October 28th Ambitious, brave, and at times, stubborn—Lucy is a true Scorpio sign. Scorpio signs are said to have darker, controlling personalities, which definitely aligns with Lucy's control-freak nature. However, being a Scorpio also makes her a great leader, determined to do what's right, and a loyal
