Witch Rising (Witch Song)
*A novelette*

A fast read filled to the brim with action, heartache, and love.


A ship burns, sinking into the dark sea. There is only one survivor—a child hunted for the power of her song. Hidden away on an isolated island, Lilette buries her power deep, convinced it caused the deaths of those she loves.

But she can’t run from who she is. And when her secret is revealed, the only thing that can save her is her song. It’s time to rise up and become what she was always meant to be: the most powerful witch ever born.

"Lilette's world goes up in ashes, but can she find a way to rise from them in Amber Argyle's Witch Rising? This novella is an intense and emotional story. Lilette's growth from never wanting to use her spells again and coming back to who she tugs on my heartstrings. The lessons she learns will make her stronger, and I'm looking forward to reading the forthcoming Witch Fall. Witch Rising is a great prequel and beautifully written." ~Cherie Reich, author of Reborn

The Devils You Meet On Christmas Day: An Anthology
The season isn't what it seems.

While some are nestled cozy in their traditions, others are lost in darkness. An unkindness of ravens lurks like a warning above them while they try to escape their inner demons and fight the dragons they've been trying to avoid. There's no enjoying fatal amounts of pie because their minds are slipping, slipping into a twisted delusion. They are the murderers, the disturbed, the unfortunate, and the misunderstood. These outliers are imprisoned by their circumstances until they slowly fade into the icy landscape, smothered by the forged façade of a perfect Christmas.

In this unsettling collection of stories, authors Katie Coughran, Vanessa K. Eccles, Mary Gray, and Cammie Larsen explore the darkened corners of paranormal, horror, and fantasy to create a gothic and somewhat macabre Christmas read.
