Are You Ready for a Magical Weekend?

You should be feeling lucky! It’s St Patrick’s Day. I have some book ideas below for magical reading on the weekend. But with it being a green day (have you ever celebrated St Pat’s Day with green beer? I haven’t!) I wondered if you’d be gardening this weekend. Green, gardening, my skippety hoppety brain often has a reason for its skippiness.

It’s autumn here, so it’s almost time to start thinking of a new season – summer is hanging around, so it’s not quite cool enough to jump into winter plantings. The herbs are looking incredibly green. Lots of yummy basil.

I would love to have room to plant a grove of pistachio trees and maybe a couple of carob trees. It’s not that I like the taste of carob (although it’s okay if chocolate is totally unavailable). But space for trees in suburbia is cramped. I might buy a new herb! Any suggestions? What’s your favourite herb?

Romantic or Paranormal Mysteries 99c or Less, March 17 & 18

kindle unlimited, paranormal, mysteries,

Are you feeling witchy, curious or simply ready for some romance? There’s a book for that! The Mystery Promo runs Friday and Saturday.

Footy Season starts next weekend!

For me, footy means Australian Rules Football. I don’t want to break any copyright rules, so I’ll link you to the ads for it if you’re interested rather than try and embed them.

This was THE classic ad from twenty years ago. This year, the game started a women’s league, and they riffed off the classic ad with this I’d Like to See That ad.

It mightn’t sound magical to you, but I love collapsing on the sofa for a couple of hours on the weekend and watching a game of footy. Of course, if it’s my team involved (go, the West Coast Eagles!) I can’t relax. I have to be mentally willing each kick-on-goal through the big sticks 🙂

Kindle Unlimited Discoveries

kf breene, paranormal romance, kindle unlimited,I enjoyed Hell’s Rejects by MR Forbes. It was a fast-paced space adventure and I’m looking forward to the next book in the series.

Born in Fire by KF Breene has a kick-ass heroine with a strong narrative voice. Lots happening in what promises to be a memorable series. Love the New Orleans setting!

Have You Read All Seven of My Collegium Series?

kindle unlimited, paranormal romance, series,

I thought I’d list the seven books in my complete paranormal romance series in case you’ve missed one. They’re all free to read in Kindle Unlimited.

Demon Hunter

Magic is real, if hidden, and betrayal is sharper than a demon’s claws.  A novella.

Djinn Justice

Fay and Steve’s new relationship is tested by a meddling djinn, a power-crazed villain enslaving weres, and Steve’s family. A novel.

Dragon Knight  

Gina Sidhe is on a quest for her dragon. Lewis Bennett is trying to survive without magic. A novel.

Doctor Wolf

Dr Liz Jekyll has a secret to hide. What she needs is a big, bad wolf to hide behind!

Plague Cult

In a small Texas town a desire for love becomes a curse that could unleash a deadly plague.

Hollywood Demon

A demon is stalking Hollywood. So much for Clancy renouncing her magic and becoming ordinary. This means a fight!

Alchemy Shift

A woman, her sword, and the bear-shifter who’ll steal her heart.

Magic is Real! Kinda

Have you watched the television show Penn & Teller Fool Us? I love watching the different magicians trying to fool the masters – and then, I try to guess how the trick was done. I’m often baffled! In this interview with Teller in Vanity Fair I’m struck by his belief that a magician’s purpose is to amaze. The world needs more opportunities for innocent awe.

  1. Oh yum, Mary. Now I feel like having steak. 🙂

    I certainly have read the entire Collegium series and I highly recommend them to everyone. Just don’t ask me for a favourite.

    I’ve never watched Aussie Rules, Jenny. I suppose I’d better not say that aloud now that I’m in ARF territory. (I don’t think that’s the right acronym either, so my apologies for that too.)

    1. Oh D! You’re missing out! Never mind, I’m sure it’ll happen almost by osmosis … next time I see you you’ll be wearing blue and gold (West Coast Eagles) or boo! purple. LOL I might have grown up in Freo Dockers’ territory, but I’m an eagle 😉

  2. My favorite herb is rosemary. Love it tossed in butter and basted over sirloin. Divine!

    Happy St. Pat’s!! (Although I’m late.) No green beer celebrations for me. However, we have begun planting. I do have a giant planter of rosemary that we keep near the kitchen. Grows well here. Also, I’m a bit jealous that you Aussies get to enjoy autumn, my favorite season. Plus, winter is just around the corner for y’all and, well, I love that season just as much. NOT a fan of summer. When one lives in the balmy, humid climate of Louisiana it’s too difficult to love that kind of weather. Enjoy.

    Have a great weekend.
