    A Broom with a View – ebook

    Yes, you read that right, folks. My friend Gayla Twist and I sat down over cider and caramel apples, and got to talking  about our love for classic romance novels, and the trend of reinterpreting them for the modern genre audience, and the title “A Broom with a View” drifted across the table, as if magically out of thin air. We quickly abandoned the idea of just shoehorning magic and monsters into an old book, deciding instead to recreate the story of the beloved E.M. Forster novel, “A Room with a View,” as a romance between a soulful vampire and an adventurous young witch. We then realized that we wanted…

    Courtney Crumrin’s Final Spell

    It’s been over a week, and I’m sure you all have noticed by now that Issue 10 was the final chapter in the story of Courtney Crumrin.

Like the previous volume, it is exceptionally handsome, in an elegant hunter green with a full color interior. Colorist Warren Wucinich has outdone himself with this one, imbuing the book with even more lustrous, atmospheric color than the last one. Thanks again, Warren. It will hit shelves at the end of next month, with a cover price…
