Out Now + Coming Soon

I know I appear to be idling most of the time — and that is probably an entirely justified observation — but occasionally, having done things at some moment of ill-judged industriousness, these scribblings find their way to the light. Out now from Breakdown Breakdown Press: (picture grabbed from the publisher over on Instagram)

This also offers a hint of a forthcoming project of mine, but anon —

There’s the Inanna book too!

Out in October but up for pre-order now is Volume 4 of the Black Room Manuscripts:

Out Now: Inanna’s Ascent

inannasascent_coverweb
Out now! You can buy it direct from the publisher here, but it will also be available from the usual commercial outlets. Trista, Tamara and Pat have done a wonderful job gathering the words and art of women from across the world who have been inspired by this ancient goddess. I write about how I used Inanna’s story in my novel Owl Stretching (by the by, thinking of doing an audio book of that now that it’s out of print).

By the by, I’m now on Instagram (hopefully helping out with the Fox Spirit skulk promo). I’ll probably be more esoteric there than here: each platform has its own personality –or brings out a particular aspect of my personality. Hit me up if you’re there.

Out Now: Hard-Boiled Witch 5 – Impractical Magic


Out at last, the latest Hecate Sidlaw adventure. Click the image or here to pick up your copy (adjust to your region). As always if you want to order direct, buy me a cuppa (button to the right) and get a PDF as a gift.

Hecate Sidlaw would rather wrestle with her mugwort and nettle tea recipe than battle with a faceless corporation, but somehow she and her familiar Henry always get drawn into magical shenanigans around town. This time there’s something strange going on in the local farming community — do the crop failures have anything to do with the ritual revival of the old Dundee city arch?

Enter the dark streets and weird magic of HARD-BOILED WITCH and your life will never be quite the same.

This 33-page ebook single is the fifth in the series from the author of WHITE RABBIT, UNQUIET DREAMS, DREAM BOOK, OWL STRETCHING, and the CHASTITY FLAME thriller series.

“Laity has been proving for quite some time now that her noir prose ranks right up there with the likes of Meg Abbott, Dorothy B. Hughes, and Sara Paretsky.”

When a new burlesque club opens in Dundee, the owner calls on Hecate Sidlaw to deal with some strange attacks — by a skeleton! She and her familiar Henry need to get to the bottom of the magical threats, if she can get him away from the performers long enough to investigate. Looks like they need someone with expertise in calaveras… 

Enter the dark streets and weird magic of HARD-BOILED WITCH and your life will never be quite the same.

Hecate Sidlaw finds herself in a wild storm of shady folks all looking for a priceless artifact that’s gone missing. With all the double dealing and surprising murders, it’s a wonder she and Henry can find out what’s really going on — and what this precious treasure could be. An ancient alchemical text may hold the answers if only Hecate and Henry can live long enough to get to the library!
