Hopeful Leigh by Melanie James
If Leigh has learned anything this summer, it’s that magic can be chaotic. Despite some headline making disasters in her last diary, Leigh is eternally hopeful. With Four-bitten Fangtasy behind her, Leigh decides to write a little paranormal erotica with her newest disasterpiece, Bangin’ the Billion-were. She even takes on a rehash of the popular YA dystopian genre in her novella Regurgitant. It seems that even the editing of other author’s writing can make her unwittingly fire up her literal-witchcraft. Leigh finds out how bad things can get when her friends ask her to edit their own cowboy-biker book, Steel Stetsons. Despite the flurry of writing, Leigh’s romantic heart is racing. Her boyfriend Hunter will finally graduate from the Chicago Police Academy. Will Leigh and Hunter finally be able to enjoy some quality time on a camping trip? What will Leigh think of Hunter’s unique family? What is Luna capable of when pushed to an act of desperation?
It seems Randy “Johnson” (Designer at Paranormal Chic) and Gertie have unwittingly uncovered a new mystery for Leigh and her hapless coven to sort out. Now, the upcoming Witches Halloween Gala is in jeopardy, not to mention the future of civilization. Follow these magical misfits as they travel half way around the world to a hexed Scottish Castle and take on the very essence of evil, in Hopeful Leigh.

It’s Halloween, Leigh’s favorite time of the year. As a rookie witch with high hopes, she has a lot to look forward to. When a mysterious supernatural force meddles in her life things take a turn for the worse. Hunter gets caught in the paranormal crossfire and his very soul may be at risk. Leigh’s job seems to have suddenly gone sour as well. The public school doesn’t share this young teacher’s enthusiasm for what they deem to be a religious holiday. To keep her entire life from falling apart at the seams, Leigh needs serious help. Once again she calls on her trustworthy but inept best friends to pull her through. Magical mayhem abounds. Leigh has a run-in with a bizarre cult bent on human sacrifice, some galloping golems, AND pesky ghosts—not to mention stray bolts of witchcraft! Can Marie Laveau and Hunter’s parents help the gang put together an emergency séance in the historic but haunted Schlitt House? They find out some ghosts can be a real drag, possession has side effects, and exorcisms are unpredictable at best. What will the Witches Halloween Gala in Salem be like? Will we finally find out what the deal is with Luna when she gets her paw read? Read all about it in Haunting Leigh.
Joyful Leigh by Melanie James
‘Tis the season for magical mayhem. Leigh vows upon her magic desk and witch’s broom that Thankshanukkamas will be filled with childlike joy for her, her family, and her friends—even if it kills them. And it may just come to that! With a new publishing contract in hand, the disasterpieces fly from Leigh’s desk. With titles like Sleighing the Elfa-The Elf Pack Book1, Restoring The Old Schlitt House-A “Do Yourself” Romance, Fangin’ the Billion-were, and Gangin’ the Billion-were, the mischief piles up.
When the EPA (Elf Protection Agency) shows up at Leigh’s door, she’s got some explaining to do. Throw in a couple of retired mobsters, Fur-Con, bats in the belfry, along with a shape-shifting witch, and you’ve got a recipe for catastrophe. Can Leigh and the gang save the fate of all paranormals. Or will this be the end of the line for Leigh and her band of magical misfits?
