I am thrilled to finally be able to share this with you–the cover and blurb for A Poisoned Garden: New World Magic Book Four. As always, a big bouquet of thanks to my cover artist Aurelia Frey of Pretty AF Designs, who can see into my brain and create exquisite art. You can pre-order A Poisoned Garden right now and it will magically appear in your inbox on December 13th!
A unicorn walks into a bar and…wait, what was I saying?
Look, between what I’m pretty sure is premature senility and wanting to barf all the time, I’m barely hanging in there. At this point, I need a break after solving xeno murders, fighting murderous fox shifters, and my best friend nearly murdering me for…reasons.
But do I get a break? No, I get an invitation to the court of the Unseelie fae, and it’s the kind of invitation you can’t refuse because it’s from the king who flip-flops between wanting to share a pizza with me and stabbing me.
The upside is that I can see my best friend Marly, the newly minted and slightly murderous Unseelie fae queen. The downside? Apparently, I have to prevent a civil war between powerful magical beings, and I don’t even get a can opener for self-defense.
Just like clockwork, I’m back to running from supernatural squids, double-dealing with triple-dealing fae who probably all want me dead, and getting tangled up with a beautiful, broken-hearted unicorn who makes me feel guilty, and I don’t know why.
After all, we’ve never met before…have we?

A unicorn walks into a bar…and leaves with my heart. He’s gone, and now I have a unicorn-named-March-shaped hole in my life. But, I get it. Unicorns aren’t meant to live in a world where they have to deal with putting gas in the car, getting groceries, and paying cell phone bills. I’m trying to get past this. Really, I am. It’s just that everyone constantly talks about him, from his immortal ex-girlfriend, to reality TV-obsessed Fae, to even my own fully-human friends. Even his enemies are still obsessed with him. I learned that the hard way. Did I mention the part where I end up on the run—again—from an old, powerful enemy of his? Yeah. Fun times. I just want to be left to get over my broken heart while watching home improvement shows and eating ice cream. But mysterious disappearances, murder, and a quest for affordable real estate in Washington D.C. keep getting in the way. Maybe that’s just life. Sometimes we get what we want. Sometimes, we get what we need. And sometimes, we get what we deserve. I guess you could call it…The March Effect.
I can’t think of anything other than THANK YOU to say to Tom Baker at One Hour Book Club, mostly because I imploded and am now a drifting cloud of glitter and happiness.
Tom has a fascinating concept–he reads the first hour of the book–he has a timer! And then he recaps, gives his thoughts, and tries to imagine how it all plays out. He did a really good job of predicting the ending! Be aware, there are major spoilers for the first bit of Pure.
