Countdown: Spell For Sophia, Book # 4, The Teen Wytche Saga

Great news!

Spell For Sophia, the fourth book in my Teen Wytche Saga will debut in November!

Spell For Sophia is a Young Adult, sweet paranormal romance.
The teens protecting the ever morphing spell book return, and this time they’ll have to deal with a teen ghost, a murderous villain, and voodoo spells.
Two of the teens will time travel to one of the most haunted cities in America.

The editing process has begun, and I am super excited to team up again with my editor, Nia Shay. My publisher, Astraea Press, has promised Amanda Matthews will do the cover. Here are the covers Amanda did for the first three books:

Leading a Magical Life

You know you’re leading a magical life when:

  • You’re the only one to see the dragon peeking out from behind a waterfall.
  • You’re asked to exorcise an entity while touring Wales.
  • Jewelry catapults off you whenever the spirit of your mischievous stepfather visits.

Did I mention I’m a shaman as well as an author? To read more about “Leading a Magical Life,” please visit me today on J.F. Jenkins’ blog:
