Spellbinding: Tales from the Magic University! (is here!)

Squeee! It’s here! SPELLBINDING is a collection of erotic short stories all set at Veritas, the hidden magical university inside Harvard. The entire Magic University series grew out of my involvement with Harry Potter fandom and fanfic, so it seemed only natural to me when creating my own world of magic to invite others to come and play in it, too!

So welcome Frances Selkirk, Lauren P. Burka, Julie Cox, Rian Darcy, Deb Atwood, Sarah Ellis, Elisabeth Hurst, BriAnne Searles, and Carline Ball to the university!

SPELLBINDING includes four stories written by me, and eleven stories by other writers having fun! In true fanfic fashion, some of the stories follow the canon, while others explore non-canon pairings (like Kyle/Alex). All are sexy as hell. Most are slash, two are het, and one is femslash. (And one I can’t decide what classification it goes under. You’ll see.)

I also have a number of free copies of the ebook I can share with folks who will promise to review the book on their blogs and post the reviews to Amazon.com or Goodreads before July 1st. If you’re interested, drop me an email at my “writer” address: ctan.writer (@) gmail.com

More details below the cut, including links to where you can get a free sample, or purchase from Amazon’s Kindle store, B&N Nookstore, All Romance eBooks, Smashwords, or the Ravenous Romance site itself.

Meanwhile, I can’t help but notice that book one of the series, THE SIREN AND THE SWORD, is on special for just 99 cents at both Amazon and B&N!

So if you’ve been meaning to start on the series, now’s the time! (Book four will be out by August at the latest! The manuscript’s done and with my beta readers now! Trying to get it out before Diacon Alley!)

A bit more about SPELLBINDING. Here’s the table of contents and a brief note about each story. The stories are grouped into sections as to which books in the series they are spoilery for, and where they fit in the timeline:
