Haunted by Magic Diaries Day 9: Never Underestimate the Crazy by @Jess_Haines #paranormal

Amazon / Barnes & Noble / iBooks / Kobo

Haunted by Magic Diaries:

Real life unexplainable events from the authors.


“I have had someone ask me in all seriousness if I ever met a werewolf because he “had an experience once.”

I had someone else ask me if I could introduce them to the main vampire in my UF series because “he must be real.”


I might write some freaky things now and then, but trust me, you don’t need the paranormal in your life to experience genuine weirdness. I can’t be sure of this audience, but if you’re feeling daring, ask me sometime to link you to some of the odd news that has rolled across my social media timeline at one point or another. Never underestimate the crazy out there.” – Jess Haines


I’m a displaced New Yorker with a penchant for the silly, the obscure, and the fantastical. I’m a connoisseur of crappy horror movies and good coffee. Tampa, Florida is home for the time being. I’m currently working on the H&W Investigations urban fantasy series and the Blackhollow Academy young adult contemporary fantasy series. Find out more about my books, drop me a line, or join my mailing list at!




Jess is the author of Smoke and Mirrors:


A girl who uses her illusions to fool the world into thinking she’s just like all the other magi.

A dragon who sees through her lies.

Together they just might survive a world that wants to control or destroy them both.

Kimberly may wield ultimate cosmic power, but even a mage has to pay the rent. No one will hire her for her magic talents until she’s got the credentials, so she’s stuck in a crappy rent controlled apartment with her mother, yearning for treats she can’t afford at her part time job in a café, counting down the days until she graduates the secret Blackhollow Academy school for magi. Only then will she have the certificate she needs to land her dream job in a coven.

The problem? She needs a familiar to graduate.

As an illusionist, she doesn’t have the ability to summon or create a familiar of her own. Her only option is to convince a supernatural creature to let her bind it instead. Since having a powerful Other at her beck and call would guarantee her a place in a coven after she graduates—and legendary treasure hoards are an added bonus—she thinks binding a dragon as her familiar will solve all her problems…

Because sometimes a girl needs a dragon, not a knight.

Haunted by Magic Spotlight on Author @Nick_SBC #pnr #uf

Amazon / Barnes & Noble / iBooks / Kobo

Haunted by Magic

Author Spotlight!


A. Payne & N. D. Taylor are a lovely, talented writing duo, so let’s learn a little more about them, shall we?



A. Payne loves to read and has always had a fondness for creative writing. She started with poetry and moved up to short stories, before eventually writing novels with her friend Nicole. She enjoys a whole range of genres and authors from Tolkien to James Rollins, and blames her love for reading on her mother, who introduced her to the worlds of Pern and Xanth at an early age. Alisha is a former Petty Officer of the United States Navy, which is where she met her wonderful husband. They have two children and now call Virginia their home.




N.D. Taylor enjoys writing as an outlet for her creativity. She is a video gamer by nature and enjoys watching movies and reading novels by Stephen King, Mary Higgins Clark, Scott Lynch, Tolkien and Michael Crichton among others. If it’s good, she’ll read it whether it’s suspense, thriller, fantasy, horror, or illustrated storytelling. She also enjoys the outdoors, jogging with her dog, riding horses, and going to renaissance fairs. Nick is currently working as a nurse and is the mother of two beautiful children ages eight and ten.




You can find out more about this writing pair and about their books here. Their book The Regent’s Gamble is included in the Haunted by Magic box set!


When wizard Addison Rhydderch goes out on a New Year’s Eve date, he doesn’t expect to end the night saving Manhattan from the undead. Afterward, he’s tasked with the duties of Regent – protector of the fragile balance between the mundane and supernatural realms. The job is easier said than done, even with the aid of Saraia, a half-dryad who’s as sultry as she is compassionate and strong. The attraction between them is immediate, powerful, and forbidden, but malevolent forces are threatening Saraia’s nature spirit kin.

Boundaries are tested as the new ruler and his companions are swept into a treacherous game of loyalty and betrayal. Addison’s office is hounded by the shadow of a dark magician who seemingly kills without rhyme or reason, a man who consorts with devils and always keeps one step ahead. Addison and Saraia, assisted by new allies, must face the demonic uprising while resisting the sparks flying between them.

Haunted by Magic Diaries Day 8: A Possible Abduction by…Me! #paranormal #aliens

Amazon / Barnes & Noble / iBooks / Kobo

Haunted by Magic Diaries:

Real life unexplainable events from the authors.

“I was lying in my bed, waiting for sleep. My bed faced the window, and I often slept with the blinds open because I was twelve and didn’t know any better. A bright light hovered outside the window, orb-shaped and growing closer. I wasn’t scared, just…curious. I listened for a motor or something to explain the light, but there was only silence. It grew closer and closer still, soon filling the entirety of my window. I pinched myself, but I wasn’t dreaming. Then, I blacked out. About a year later, the light revisited me, and once again after that. The final time, it zipped away like a deflating helium balloon, moving much too fast to be natural. When I tell people this, they look at me with skepticism written all over their faces, but I believe something otherworldly visited me those three nights. Was I abducted? I have no idea, but the truth is out there. *cue X-Files music here*” – Lindsey R. Loucks



Lindsey R. Loucks is a former school librarian in rural Kansas. When she’s not discussing books with anyone who will listen, she’s dreaming up her own stories. Eventually her brain gives out, and she’ll play hide and seek with her cat, put herself in a chocolate-induced coma, or watch scary movies alone in the dark to re-energize. You can find more about Lindsey at her website.

Haunted by Magic Diaries Day 7: Glowing Eyes by @PamitaRao #paranormal

Amazon / Barnes & Noble / iBooks / Kobo

Haunted by Magic Diaries:

Real life unexplainable events from the authors.


“I was ten and it was the night of my birthday party. After the party when I entered my room, I thought I saw a pair of glowing eyes. I screamed and ran to my mother who had just put my baby sister to bed.

“What happened?” she asked.

“I think there is someone in my room,” I said.

My mother shook her head in frustration. It had been a long day of arranging for my party, catering to screaming children and then cleaning up all the mess we made. She could have just yelled at me, instead, she chose to accompany me to my room. She turned on the light.

“See, there is no one here,” she said with a smile. “You have such a wild imagination. Now go to sleep.”

Feeling much better I allowed my mother to tuck me into bed. I felt myself drift into sleep as she closed the door and turned off the light but as soon as I was alone I felt a prickle on my skin as if someone was watching me.

Too afraid to open my eyes I remained in the sleeping position hoping that whoever it was would go away. Suddenly there was a sound of rattling chains and I opened my eyes and screeched at the pair of glowing eyes staring back at me.

Lights of my room turned back on again and the eyes vanished. My mother stood there, this time looking furious and exasperated. That night I slept with my parents and the eyes never showed back again but the memory has been etched in my brain forever.” – Pamita Rao


Pamita Rao is a multi-genre author who lives in Europe with her husband. She spends most of her time thinking of unique concepts and creating fascinating stories with them.





Pamita’s book blurb:


Demons and Gods have been at war since the beginning of time. Demons want their rightful place in Heaven and the Gods will never let that happen. When every effort fails, the Demons decide to use all their powers to attack and destroy the dearest creation of the Gods–planet Earth.

After losing her parents at the age of ten, Patricia Kimwell moves from one foster home to another finally ending up being adopted by the NYPD Chief of Police Ben Garrison, who along with his son, provides her with a home she desperately needs.

Now a cop at NYPD herself, Patricia is determined to serve her country and begins taking up tough cases that challenge her at every level till the day she comes face to face with the inevitable–her destiny. She feels an energy within that she cannot understand or control. She sees demonic creatures that others are unable to see driving her into fear and self-doubt. All the chaos in her mind is put to ease by a guardian angel who is sent by the Gods to help her realize her true powers and fulfill her destiny.

She learns that she is an incarnation of an ancient warrior princess blessed by the gods with great powers to defeat Demons in their quest for total Apocalypse on earth. She is now faced with an ultimate choice–reject her destiny and doom the earth into total apocalypse or accept her true self and rise against the demons.

Haunted by Magic Diaries Day 6: The Empty Bedroom by J.S. Malcom #paranormal

Amazon / Barnes & Noble / iBooks / Kobo

Haunted by Magic Diaries:

Real life unexplainable events from the authors.

“When I was a teenager, a friend of mine had six brothers and sisters who all shared bedrooms. One time, I asked him why no one used one particular bedroom that sat empty. He told me that none of them liked it, and didn’t elaborate. Years later, his mother told mine that the house was haunted by the ghost of a woman. All of the kids had been able to see the ghost as children and would know when she was in the room. Over time, they all grew out of it. My friend’s mother alone could still see the ghost move about the house. And, yes, she favored one bedroom, in particular.” – J. S. Malcom


J. S. Malcom is the author of the Realm Watchers urban fantasy series, of which Autumn Winters is just the beginning. J. S. lives in Richmond, Virginia, a town full of history and ghosts (not to mention, many other supernatural creatures, including Autumn and Cassie). Learn more by visiting




Autumn Winters has a secret that could get her killed. She just doesn’t know she’s keeping it.

Autumn Winters doesn’t realize that she’s come into her powers as a protector of the veil. All she knows is that her world suddenly looks onto another, one full of ghosts and other supernatural beings that can’t possibly exist. But another window has opened within her, bringing memories of when her sister, Cassie, also displayed magical abilities. That was just before Cassie went missing. She hasn’t been seen since.

Autumn believes there must be a connection between what’s happening to her now and what happened years ago. Determined to finally rescue her sister, Autumn sets out with the mysterious, and psychic, private investigator Ian to track down who committed her sister’s abduction, as she struggles to accept her own legacy as a veil witch and master her newfound magic. What she doesn’t realize is that, when the powers of a realm watcher awaken, there are those who’ll be waiting. Getting closer to the truth only means getting closer to danger.

Autumn Winters is the first book in a dark, thrilling urban fantasy series journeying into the place where our world converges with that of ghosts, vampires, magical creatures and other trans-dimensional intruders—a world humans were never meant to detect.

Here’s what people are saying about the Autumn Winters Realm Watchers series:

“Could not put this down! The action moved fast and the characters are so well-developed!”

“Love the way J. S. Malcolm presents the supernatural as if it is natural. Maybe it is! The author definitely makes it feel that it might be.”

“Start at the beginning and read them all. You’ll be addicted in no time!

“Every time I thought I was good and understood what was going on. Bam! A new twist.”

“I’m totally addicted to this series. It’s just so refreshing to find a character as real as Autumn.”

“This series gets more and more riveting!”
