Witchy Words To Enchant Your Woeful Winter

In USA Today, Carol Memmot brings attention to a slew of witch-themed tomes either on the shelves now or hitting them soon. After being steeped in Vampire/Werewolf for so long, it's nice to see a change of pace....

A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Hakness (Viking) -- An Oxford scholar unearths a manuscript whose alchemical powers bring witches, vamps, and demons into present-day.

Witches on the Road Tonight by Sheri Holman (Atlantic Monthly Press) -- A young Appalachian whose mother is rumored to be a witch can't shake the dark secrets about his family.

Chime by Franny Billingsley (Dial) Only witches can see the Old Ones, spirits who haunt the swamps, so a young girl must keep her secret or face her community's death sentence for witches.

I'm working on a pagan-community-based young adult series. Magic is always popular.
