Witches with the Enemy

#fantasybooks, #misttornwitches, #barbhendee, #nobledeadsaga, #nobledeadseries

Hi Gang. I know next May seems a long way away, but links to pre-order Witches with Enemy are popping up at all the right venues, some with special discounts if you order now. JC has added information and current links for this next volume of The Mist-Torn Witches series to our “Books” section at

I am really excited about this novel. Celine and Amelie learn more about their growing powers, and fans of the series will learn more about the tense relationship between Anton and his brother Damek than they probably want to know. Hah!

Pop over to the Books section, select The Mist-Torn Witches and then the new book cover to read the synopsis and find the vendor links.

Cover Your Ass(ets), Part 1: Structuring Author Files (and Folders)

Whether you are (or aspire to be) a professional writer or specifically an author, the files you create and edit are precious commodities. Treat them so, like the blood in your veins.

The loss of even a fraction can be (1) dangerous or devastating to your career and/or (2) lead to a recreation process that might not (re)capture your original data. And no, just copying files to another location after a day’s work is not enough, though it is an adequate but temporary solution. READ MORE >>
