Hi! I’m thrilled to announce that TOIL & TROUBLE will be coming out in paperback on September 7 with a whole new look! While I loved the typographic cover for the hardback, hopefully this gorgeous new illustrated paperback cover will help the book find new readers.
What do you think?
With stories by Brandy Colbert, Zoraida Córdova, Kate Hart, Emery Lord, Elizabeth May, Anna-Marie McLemore, Tehlor Kay Mejia, Andrea Robertson, Tess Sharpe, Lindsay Smith, Jessica Spotswood, Nova Ren Suma, Shveta Thakrar, Robin Talley, and Brenna Yovanoff.
There’s nothing more powerful than a witch who believes in herself.
Women accused of witchcraft. Fearsome girls with arcane knowledge. TOIL & TROUBLE features fifteen stories of girls embracing their power, reclaiming their destinies, and using their magic to create, to curse, to cure, to kill…and to live.
A young witch uses social media to connect with her astrology clients — and with a NASA-loving girl as cute as she is skeptical. A priestess of death investigates a ritualized murder. A bruja who cures lovesickness might need the remedy herself when she falls for an altar boy. A theater production is turned upside down by a visiting churel. A water witch uses her magic to survive the soldiers who have invaded her desert oasis. And in the near future, a group of girls accused of witchcraft must find their collective power…and destroy their captors.
NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF A TEENAGE WITCH.
