Onesies and Ouijaboards

by Jamie Sands

Arrow is fifteen, non-binary, and bored.

It’s one thing to read about magic, or watch ghost hunting shows. But Arrow yearns for something more. When they try out a prosperity spell from a magical library book, things start to go very very right.

Until they don’t.

Arrow’s good luck seems to be affecting a lot of the people around them. From A students suddenly failing quizzes to freak accidents, their good luck seems to be double-sided to say the least. Arrow’s best friend Ren knows not to mess with the unknown, but Arrow’s spell might just affect him all the same.

Arrow’s got to learn about how to wield their magic fast when the power they’ve drawn down proves to be beautiful, but dangerous as well.

Overdues and Occultism

by Jamie Sands

A stack of books on a table in a library highlighted with golden magic

A witch in the broom closet probably shouldn’t be so interested in a ghost hunter, right? That Basil is a librarian comes as no surprise to his Mt Eden community. That he’s a witch? Yeah. That might raise more than a few eyebrows. When Sebastian, a paranormal investigator filming a web series starts snooping around Basil’s library, he stirs up more than just Basil’s heart. Between Basil’s own self-doubt, a ghost who steals books and Sebastian, an enthusiastic extrovert bent on uncovering secrets, Basil’s life is about to get a lot more complicated

Rituals & Roadtrips

by Jamie Sands

A road trip with a witch and a ghost hunter was never going to go smoothly.

Basil wants a pleasant holiday, exploring the upper North Island with his boyfriend, and he has the schedule to ensure it happens just so.

Sebastian is thrilled to be back on the road, searching for adventure and new mysteries to film at every stop. He just has to get Basil to stop worrying, then everything will be golden.

Unfortunately for both of them, when magic is involved nothing goes according to plan. Basil and Sebastian’s luck gets worse the farther they get from home. Finally a sinister enemy pulls them right off their path. It will take all of Basil’s power, and all of Sebastian’s ingenuity to come out on top and find a nice quiet spot to catch up on reading.

Rituals and Roadtrips is a novella-length story featuring ghosts, witches and a sweet gay romance. Best read in order, with Overdues and Occultism coming first. This book is a bit longer than the preceding two. Contents include road tripping, New Zealand countryside, caves, curses, an involuntary transformation and some excellent food.
