TOIL & TROUBLE paperback edition

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.

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.
