Lily is 9. Her sister Daisy is 1. And she's no ordinary baby. Somehow, when she was born, something went rather wrong... and now Daisy is a Witch Baby. Nobody knows this but Lily - she's the only one who can see when Daisy makes the fridge float in the air, or turns people into slugs, or summons up her very stinky dog Waywoof... The sisters have just moved to a new neighbourhood, and their mum wants them to make friends. She decides to throw a party and send Lily and Daisy out to deliver the invitations. They meet some odd characters along the way... Will the party be a big success or will Daisy's magic mean things are even more chaotic than normal?

It's a rainy spring-time, coming up to Witch Baby Daisy's second birthday. Her nursery class are putting on a musical performance, helped by the older children, including big sister Lily. Meanwhile Mum is trying to potty train Daisy, unaware that as soon as she succeeds, Daisy will be reclaimed by the witches who live on the hill, who've only been waiting for their little protegee to be out of nappies before they take her 'home'. Happily, Daisy is so rubbish at toilet training that Lily persuades Mum to drop the idea, and the day is saved! The concert is a great success, despite Daisy turning Lily's bagpipes into a spider, and the witches are distracted by spells for romance. Another charming, brilliantly plotted and gorgeously illustrated gem of a book by this outstandingly talented author/illustrator.

Just over the hill stood a shack where the most beautiful woman you ever laid eyes on lived. Her hair was blonde and wavy with eyes as blue as the sky. Her figure would make any man lose his breath. The only thing wrong with this picture was she's a Witch. Her name is Sarah and an evil Witch at that. Her mother had her out of wedlock. Sarah's mother kept her pregnancy secret from her parent's until one day when her father opened her bedroom door to scold her about something. Her father heard a baby's cry and said, "Did I just hear a baby's cry? "No! No! Father," cried Sarah's Mother. Her father pushed her aside from her closet door. Opened the door and shouted to the top of his lungs. "I want this baby out of my house by morning and that's an order," said her father in an angry voice. Sarah's Mother was only sixteen years old when she had Sarah. Having a baby out of wedlock and especially at sixteen was a disgrace to the family. The next morning Sarah's Mother carried her newborn baby Sarah into town looking for a good home for her daughter. Sarah's Mother came across this shack where a sweet old lady lives. She asked the old woman to take her baby and love her as her own. The old lady accepted and asked her. "Why are you giving up your baby? I'm just an old woman." "My father will kill me and my baby if I don't get rid of this problem. That's his exact words," replied Sarah with a river of tears flowing down her cheeks. Sarah's Mother turned away from the old lady weeping uncontrollably. Sarah's Mother's heart was so heavy with guilt and daily ridiculing from her father. She just couldn't handle the pain so she decided to end her own life. Her father found her hanging from a rope in her closet. Her father cut her down from the rope but it was too late she was already dead. Her father felt responsible for her death so he went into his bedroom and pulled open the top dresser drawer. Pulled out his revolver, pointed it at his head and pulled the trigger blowing out his brains. Later that evening, their bodies were discovered by his wife. She screamed in agony and dropped to her knees. The only two people she ever cared about were lying on the floor dead. She knelt down beside her husband took the revolver from his hand and took one last look at her daughter and husband and said "Please forgive me lord for what I'm about to do." Then she put the barrel of the gun in her mouth. Pulled the trigger and blew out her brains. After the old lady heard the news about Sarah's Mother, grandmother, and grandfather were all dead she felt even more compelled to raise Sarah the best way she knew fit. As Sarah matured into a grown woman, the old lady felt it was time for Sarah to know the real truth about her biological family. The old lady said to Sarah, "Come sit down at the table with me. I've got something very important to tell you." Sarah calmly sat down at the table with a concerned look on her face. "What is it that you need to tell me, asked Sarah? "Well, I know you think I'm your Mother but"....paused the old lady. "But what asked Sarah with a confused look on her face?” I'm not your real Mother. Your Mother died when she was just sixteen years old," explained the old lady. "How did she die, cried Sarah?”

Allison Darling, former foster child, now a stay-at-home mom of three, desperately wants to fit in with the organic latte drinking, hundred-dollar-yoga-pants-wearing moms who run Monrovia, her charming seaside village. Constantly feeling like an outsider, Allison dreams of more for her children. When the Glamour Girls, a soap-selling company run by the most charismatic and powerful women in town, recruits Allison, she jumps at the invitation. The Glamor Girls have a hand in everything in Monrovia, from bake sales to business deals. This is what Allison's wanted her whole life—to be liked. To be popular. To belong. After Allison's estranged mother passes away, she learns her family's heartbreaking legacy and the secret Allison's been fighting to suppress all her life emerges: she's a witch. What's more, she's not the only one in town. There's more to the Glamour Girls then it seems... and once you're a Glamour Girl, there's no going back. Allison must use her rediscovered magic to defend Monrovia, protect her marriage and her children, and reclaim her legacy. Fighting tooth and nail for her family is easy, but what about for herself? Is it too late to confront her own demons and become the woman she dreams of being? "Katie Schickel's debut entertains while delightfully skewering our culture's obsession with domestic perfection. In the spirit of John Updike's Witches of Eastwick and Alice Hoffman's Practical Magic, Schickel casts a spell all her own. Housewitch takes us deep inside the dark arts of 21st century motherhood and sparkles with unexpected magic." —Amber Dermont, New York Times bestselling author of The Starboard Sea At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Charles Slick Glickman thought the eighth grade would be a rather uneventful year, focused on being the starting running back for the Glickville Buffaloes and the student council president. Little did he know what he was in for. Moving the kidnapping trial of his nemesis, Jeanette Johnson, from Dallas to Phoenix was a shock. But to find out the trial could possibly cause him to lose his starting position on the football team was a severe blow. Then to have to be the star witness against the woman who had made his life miserable during his seventh-grade year, with all the publicity attached to it, was even more devastating. After enduring the grueling trial, Jeanette Johnson puts a curse on him at the sentencing and vows to get him if its the last thing she ever does. Being a lady of her word, she once again makes his life miserable by escaping from prison and taking him to the deepest rain forests of Brazil. His fear of never seeing his parents or Glickville again becomes a stark reality. Filled with mystery, adventure, humor, and unexpected twists and turns, this is a story you will not want to miss.

This is a sweet romance fantasy fiction short story (word count 5,898). Jess is taken by surprise when she discovers that she is being watched and followed. She is all the more stunned when she finds out that the identity of her watcher is a man named Gideon who has magnificent green eyes that resembles her own eye colouring! And even more disturbingly Gideon, upon being questioned, tells her that he is a witch and that she is one too. He explains that has been following her since he noticed her hypnotising an innocent market seller with her magical ability, an action that revealed her to be the same kind as him. Jess knows nothing about witches and has no real knowledge of her own true identity, which has been hidden by her folks. But now that Gideon has peaked her interest, she is ready to gain a better understanding of who and what she is. But even though she thinks she is ready to find out the truth of her identity, she had not counted on, at the same time, being so ill-prepared for the emotions and feelings that Gideon’s presence is able to provoke within her!
