Coven of One

Dorcas Fleming is a hegewitch of many talents, some of which not even she is aware of. When she graduates from Summerlands College on the feast of Samahain, none is more surprised than she to learn that her task lies far in the heathen south. Far from the comfort of her Coven, in a land that fears witches, she alone is faced with discovering the curse of Porthaveland.

Kate Bousfield’s first book, a mysterious tale of Pagan festivals, witchery and many a cup of tea drags the reader in without a second thought. Dorcas’s world is filled with humour and tender moments and the reader can easily relate to the characters. Coven of One hooked me from the first to the last page and apparently there is more to come. So if you haven’t read Coven of One, I thoroughly recommend you let a little purpleness into your life.

And now that I have entered Dorcas’s realm I’m passing her on to Sam who can be found at Sam’s Spot. Enjoy the ride Sam.

It still seems a bit weird that you are talking about me. It is a wonderful feeling to know that your words are in print - I still stroke the cover btw.
Would love to read a chapter of yours, V,.

Sounds a good read I'll look out for it.

The coven part is close to my heart as my writers group call themselves The Coven.

Ooh blooming hell I've neglected this comments box! Hello Minx, it is weird isn't it. You keep stroking the cover.
CS - yeah the book doesn't have so much of a hook as a set of claws that drag you in and won't let go till the final page.
Apprentice have a look on Sam's Spot maybe you could be the next person to get the travelling copy!Hi Jon, yep, I guessed you enjoyed it, read your review on amazon!
Are you enjoying it Vanilla? ( :
Oh and Scarlett ditto what I said to Apprentice. That's where the travelling copy is going next.
