I am also a fan of the fetching and talented L. Jagi Lamplighter, who I am delighted to report has a new book out:

The Unexpected Enlightenment of Rachel Griffin

RRachel Curved title side name bevel 4

Brooms, sorcery and exploding skunks!

Rachel Griffin wants to know everything. As a freshman at Roanoke Academy for the Sorcerous Arts, she has been granted to opportunity to study both mundane and magical subjects.

But even her perfect recollection of every book she has ever read does not help her when she finds a strange statue in the forest-a statue of a woman with wings. Nowhere-neither in the arcane tomes of the Wise, nor in the dictionary and encyclopedia of the non-magic-using Unwary-can she find mention of such a creature.

What could it be? And why are the statue’s wings missing when she returns?

When someone tries to kill a fellow student, Rachel soon realizes that, in the same way her World of the Wise hides from mundane folk, there is another, more secret world hiding from everyone-which her perfect recall allows her to remember. Her desire to know everythingdrives her to investigate.

Rushing forward where others fear to tread, Rachel finds herself beset by wraiths, magical pranks, homework, a Raven said to bring the doom of worlds, love’s first blush, and at least one fire-breathing teacher.

Curiosity might kill a cat, but nothing stops Rachel Griffin!

Available On Amazon– Kindle and Trade Paper

Great gift for the Harry Potter fan on your list!

Sounds like a jolly Christmas present!  And here’s a nifty interview with her!

Oh!  And visit her Amazon page and like it.  It’ll help boost her ratings.

And, while we are on the subject John C. Wright also has some fun stuff for Christmas.
