Debut novelist, N.E. Conneely, has released Witch for Hire, an independently-published novel.
Most witches don’t work for police departments, but Michelle isn’t your average witch. She’s clanless, looking for a warlock who isn’t offended by her lack of family connections, and in danger of losing her job if she can’t find the escaped trolls before they start eating the local residents.
Trolls, angry police, and misbehaving spells are the least of her problems. Statues attacking homeowners might be problematic for your average witch, but to Michelle it’s another day at the office. Her real concern is the wizard suddenly interested in dating her and an old elf set on pestering her. When her happy family is rocked by a long kept secret her stable life falls apart faster than she can pick up the pieces.
And she still hasn’t found those trolls.
Witch for Hire was released on February 14, 2014, and is 224 pages long.
The Lady Scribe’s Notes: This book reminds me quite a bit of the Dresden Files, but lighter in tone. There are some quirks to Conneely’s writing style, but I found they enhanced the storytelling rather than took away from it. I definitely think this debut author is going to be worth watching!
