New Release: Beyond Death (The Witch of Meridian #1)
New Paranormal Series!
Well, gentle readers, it is finally here: Beyond Death (The Witch of Meridian #1). If you follow me on twitter you might have seen this book soft drop under a new pen name. In the month since its release, I’ve reavaluated whether or not I truly wanted to go with a new pen name and it turns out–I don’t. I like having all of my books here under my main name where you can find everything you’re looking to read. With that in mind, I’ve relaunched Beyond Death under my main name and I’m pleased to say there is ALSO a print edition available with this book. If you purchase the print edition be sure and download the ebook for free via Amazon Matchbook!
The Witch of Meridian Series
This brand new series began with a desire to write about the quirky small towns you find on the Olympic Peninsula in Western Washington. A couple of years ago I visited Port Townsend, WA with a friend of mine and instantly fell in love with the Victorian town’s charm and I knew I had to write about it–or if not it directly, than about a place inspired by Port Townsend. I also wanted to use my experience running a tea shop and bakery as the setting for my protagonist. Throw in a little magic, a little vampires, and everything else that goes bump in the night, and the Witch of Meridian Series was born.
This is my first series also featuring a female protagonist. I love writing M/M but as a demisexual woman, I’ve long desired to write a character who was also demisexual, which Miranda Ellison most definitely is–even if she hasn’t figured it out quite yet 😉 Unlike my previous novels, Beyond Death is much more focused on action and personal growth of the protagonist rather than on romance. If you’re looking for a cozy, genre-bending paranormal series in the same vein as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Teen Wolf, or the Sookie Stackhouse novels, I hope you’ll check out Beyond Death!
“I’ve lived and worked and loved my entire life in Meridian. I always knew I’d die there too.”
Miranda Ellison has been the witch of Meridian–a tiny seaside town nestled at the tip of the Olympia Peninsula–for over a decade. Her life was everything a witch could want: quaint little emporium and tea shop business, engaged to her high school sweetheart, and a place in the magical community that awarded her the respect she knew she deserved. But all of that is ripped away from her one dark night, on a rain swept road, as fate tumbles Miranda into a world that looks familiar, but is anything but.
Now, surrounded by people familiar but distant, Miranda searches for a spell that will send her home to the people she loves. It might take ripping a hole in the fabric of reality, but she might just be willing to do it.
For fans of genre-bending fantasy set in small towns such as Charlaine Harris and Teen Wolf.
