It’s been a busy time with lots of news about the Santa Cruz Witch Academy series. Last week, I released the final book in the series, The Daring Witch. But now I’m going back to the beginning for a prequel.
Because it’s set before Brie goes to school, you’ll get to return to Madrone and see more of her mothers, Rosa and Ashleigh. For fans of the Fae of Calaveras trilogy, this is a great link between the two series as you get to see more of how things have changed in the magical community.
This story is also available wide. If you haven’t been able to read the series because it’s exclusive to Amazon, here is your chance to start! I will also put all three books in other stores (like Apple, Kobo, and Nook) in three months, so look for them at the end of October.
Third Generation Witch: Applications
A teen girl fears her family’s reputation will label her for life. Her mother wants her to follow in her footsteps and learn witchcraft. Can she become a witch on her own terms?
Brie knows two things about the witches in her family. Her grandmother almost destroyed their hometown with magic. Her mother saved it. But the upheaval from their fight has caused problems for twenty years. Now witchcraft is subjected to strict laws and everyone knows the McAddams family is to blame.
When Brie is old enough to study witchcraft under the new laws, her mother, Rosa, assumes that she’ll attend the school where she teaches. But everyone would put Brie under a microscope to see if she’ll turn out to be a hero like her mother or a villain like her grandmother. She wants to hide in anonymity.
Then her second mother suggests that she try a different school—one where people won’t know her family name. Brie would have to be accepted under her own merit. The MATs—Magical Aptitude Tests—will score her ability to learn magic. But if she succeeds, Brie might find a more welcoming home at Santa Cruz Witch Academy.
She just has to pass the entrance exams.
I hope you enjoy getting to spend a little more time with all these characters! I’m a little sad that the series has ended, but I’m also excited to move on to finishing the next one.
That’s right, I’m back to Riwenne and her friends in the Divine Warriors series. Hopefully, I can finish book 5, Riwenne & the Ethereal Apparatus, before the end of the year. Stay tuned for a sneak preview of this new story on Wednesday!
