Trade Paperback – Ink Yard Press – Sep 2021 – 390 pages
THERE’S NOTHING MORE POWERFUL THAN A WITCH WHO BELIEVES IN HERSELF.
Women accused of witchcraft. Fearsome girls with arcane knowledge. Toil & Trouble features fifteen stories of girls embracing their power, reclaiming their destinies, and using their magic to create, to curse, to cure, to kill – and to live.
A young witch uses social media to connect with her astrology clients, and with a NASA-loving girl as cute as she is skeptical. A priestess of death investigates a ritualized murder. A bruja who cures lovesickness might need the remedy herself when she falls for an altar boy. A theater production is turned upside down by a visiting churel. A water witch uses her magic to survive the soldiers who have invaded her desert oasis. And in the near future, a group of girls accused of witchcraft must find their collective power and destroy their captors.
NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF A TEEN WITCH!
