Wine, Witches and Song (The Everyday Witches of Wildham-on-Sea Book 1)

by Molly Milligan

Jackie is surprised to find a body smothered under a pile of stones on the beach. She is curious, but the case has to be passed to her sister Bernie, a high-ranking police officer. After all, what’s a small-town features writer and domestic witch going to do about the death of a local folk musician?

Quite a lot, as it turns out.

The murder weapon was a magical songbook.

Anne Boleyn’s legacy extends down the centuries, and has far more to do with this sleepy corner of Norfolk than anyone had realised. The ghost of Mark Smeaton is prancing around, the unpleasant descendants of the witchfinder general are rising, and Jackie is trying to photograph some llamas in a nursing home.

Things take a serious turn as she’s forced to make a difficult choice, but luckily her friends have got her back: Clare, who’s the serious, studious, clever one, and then of course there’s Gloria. She likes purple.

If – like Jackie – you’ve ever had to hastily conduct a magic spell in a public convenience, this book is for you.

From the author of The Celtic Witch Mysteries comes this new series – all the laughs, eccentricities and British folklore that you expect, with a brand-new cast of lovable characters.

Torture Chamber

by Drac Von Stoller

Dr. Worthington purchased Bentley Mansion with stolen money he used from the banks he robbed in another state. The mansion was fully furnished with medieval torture devices kept down in the basement of the mansion. He had a plan to pose as a doctor and lure doctors from the local hospital and have parties at his mansion to show off his collection of medieval torture devices to his guests. Sometimes he would put his guests in the devices and take their pictures to put in his photo album.

One day he decided he would have an all night poker game at his mansion on Halloween. Dr. Worthington called some of the doctors he got acquainted with at the hospital to see if they were interested. He was able to talk Dr. Brown, Dr. Stevens and Dr. Tarington, into playing. He told them to dress in costumes, because it was Halloween.

Halloween finally arrived and Dr. Worthington went all out on decorating the mansion with Halloween decorations. They all showed up around 10pm. It was storming outside which only made Halloween night that much more special. The only thing his doctor friends weren’t aware of when they showed up to play poker was Dr. Worthington was a sore loser and a thief. He also wasn’t a real doctor, and the mansion was bought from money he stole from banks he robbed. Dr. Worthington was a smooth talker and a very likeable person and everyone he came in contact with believed his lies.

Now a Major Film

by J.D Thomas

Have you ever thought to yourself whether Minority Report would have been vastly improved if only it had been set in Wolverhampton? Now a Major Film, the first novel by J.D.Thomas goes at least a third of the way toward answering that question.

Marcus Govey is a feckless divorcee with an incontinent spaniel and a terrifying ability. In a comic tale that takes in not one but two M6 service stations, Marcus, his spaniel and his next door neighbour display almost wilful incompetence in their attempts to put that ability to use.

It’s Google-driven sleuthing, it’s a masterclass in tea-making. It’s how NOT to be a superhero in South Staffordshire.

The Night of The Bloody Dead

by Drac Von Stoller

Something from hell was about to be unleashed in a small town called Worthington that could have been avoided.

It was a day like any other day, but even something that is routine can also cause grave consequences if one thing is overlooked. The Worthington Chemical Plant always safely stored their toxic waste in a secure location in the back of the plant, but one employee was frustrated with his job, and left one of the barrels outside the secured location, and some teenagers were drinking a six-pack of beer outside the fence of the plant when one of the teens said, “Look, what do you think is in that barrel?”

“I don’t know stupid! Why don’t we go check it out?” replied one of the teens.

The three teens scaled the fence and ran over to the barrel. The lid on the barrel wasn’t secure. One of the teens took off the lid and said, “It’s just some green goop.”

The barrel was too heavy for the teens to carry so they found some empty paint cans and filled them up with the green goop.

One of the teens asked, “What are we going to do with this?”

Another teen chimed in and said, “Why don’t we pour this goop into the water tower, besides there is so much water in the tank that it probably wouldn’t hurt a fly.”

The teens were dead wrong.
