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!

Out Now: Hard Boiled Witch 3

Just in time for your Lughnasadh gift buying spree (hey, I can dream), it’s book three in the Hecate Sidlaw series Hard Boiled Witch. Book three Charms O’erthrown mashes up a little of The Maltese Falcon with Shakespeare’s Tempest and a whole lot of trouble for Hecate and her familiar Henry, the giant ginger cat with just one eye. There’s a bunch of thieves, a missing ancient artifact and some screaming butterflies (you’re going to have to read it to find out why they’re screaming).

There’s also a new character, the stylish and knowledgeable Jhonnie “Mo” Stevenson, research librarian. A snappy dresser with a few secrets up the sleeves of a very smart ensemble. Hecate needs all the friends she can get in this town!

And as you may have seen on Facebook or Twitter, for one more day, book two Toil & Trouble is FREE. Not that any of them are going to break the bank: just 99¢ or 75p — you can’t beat that with a stick (if that’s your idea of fun).

I am having fun with this series and using some of the Dundee landmarks. I’m taking great liberties with the landscape as well, so I’ll probably never actually call it Dundee, but it’s fun to play around. Just to give a hint, there’s a big ‘shoot out’ in a certain old cemetery. 😉

We’ve got novels from some of the best crime writers today, having picked up such awards as the Goldsboro ‘Last Laugh’ Award, Anthony, Macavity and Agatha Award, Spinetingler Book of Year, Pulp Pusher Book of the Year and a small matter of a Pulitzer-prize!

Time’s running out! Just a few more days to get Unquiet Dreams at a special price! The story collection Steve Bissette called, “the long, deep plunge in the coldest quarry in the woods; the lingering look under the rotting wood at all the writhing life there; the stare into the abyss until one realizes something is staring back.”

But it’s not the only thing I’m flogging: click any of the pictures below to buy the new and flashy stuff. And please please please consider leaving reviews! They’re the only way other people decide to take a chance on something new. Help people break out of the same-old routine.
