Book birthday sale!

In 2018, my kid was hospitalized twice for migraine treatments that ultimately didn’t work. While we spent those weeks in the hospital, I worked on assembling three short collections of stories about Alondra DeCourval, a witch who travels the world to fight monsters and set things right.

Alondra was the first character I created. I’ve spent a large part of my life studying so that I would know the things Alondra knows, in order to write her stories. Lately I’ve been taking a Tarot class with Laetitia Barbier through Morbid Anatomy, because Alondra reads Tarot professionally and I wanted to understand how. I’ve also been taking classes through Treadwell’s Bookstore in London on the Qabalah, because it’s the sort of thing Alondra’s teacher would have made sure she was grounded in.

I’m working up to finally revising, once and for all, the first novel I wrote about Alondra and how she came to San Francisco in the first place. I feel like I owe my old friend to get her story out into the world.

In the meantime, this Sunday is the anniversary of one of the Alondra chapbooks’ publication date. In honor of the book birthday, I’ve made the first ebook in the series free through Saturday. Get your copy here:

I’ve also dropped the price on the other 2 Alondra chapbooks. You can pick them up on Amazon for .99 cents each.
