New Release: Slippery Slope (A Riddler’s Edge Side Story)

Hi Everyone,

Firstly, I want to tell you all that there’s a story from the Riddler’s Edge world out today, featuring Pru as the narrator.  She and Greg take a trip to the enclave of Snowy Hollow, where it’s always winter. And, because my characters are just darned unlucky, they wind up in a spot of trouble while they’re there.  The blurb and the store links are at the bottom.

If you’ve been following my website or my newsletter, you’ll know that I was unsure of whether to keep releasing while all of this was going on. But so many people wrote to me to tell me that reading is keeping them sane right now, so as long as people want to read my books, I’ll keep writing them (honestly, I’m not sure I could stop if I tried!). Here’s a little idea of what I’m planning for the coming months:

There’ll be another release from the main series this summer, with Ash as the narrator once more – I’m working on it right  now, and having a blast. I’d always intended for the Riddler’s Edge series to be seven books – everything was wrapped up and the characters got their happy endings.  But so many new ideas kept cropping up that I just had to get back to the series.  There will be a little bit more from Katy Kramer, too,  albeit a little later this year – Hamish still has to find a way to become a man again, after all.  I can’t leave that guy hanging! And there’s another Wayfair Witches adventure plotted as well – I’m really looking forward to writing that one.

In other news, we’re still on lockdown here in Ireland, although they have reopened garden centres and hardware stores, which is a relief, because gardening and DIY keep my husband busy 🙂  It’s taken me a while to get used to things – I’m a creature of routine – but I’ve finally settled in to this version of normality.  There’s been lots of reading and writing, and we’ve been baking so much that I’m going to be a couple of stone heavier when this is all over.

I know there are places in the world far worse affected than Ireland, and my hopes and prayers are with you all. Stay safe everyone, and thanks so much for reading.

The Blurb:

A romantic getaway turns deadly …

When Pru and Greg head to the enclave of Snowy Hollow for the Winter Wizard Festival, they’re looking forward to a weekend of snow-filled fun. But Snowy Hollow is not what they expected. The enclave is ruled by the Byrne coven, whose hobbies include: being mean to the yeti, blaming other people for their crimes, and littering the enclave with upmarket bars and terrible food.

When Pru predicts the death of a famous sportsman, Oscar Brown, things take a deadly turn.

Pru and Greg find themselves suspected of Oscar’s murder, and unable to escape the enclave. Together with some newfound friends, they set out to track down the real killer, stop the Byrnes from destroying the enclave, and find a way home.

There will be mystery, vampire magic, and a whole lot of snacking along the way …

New Release: Katy Kramer Book Four

I have to admit, I’ve been putting off the release of this book for a couple of days.  The world is in a bit of a strange state right now, so telling you guys to go out and grab my latest seems a little unimportant.  Not only are a lot of us scared for our loved ones and ourselves, but there are so many huge changes in everything we do. Over here a lot of businesses have shut down, schools are closed and … well, it’s crazy. There’s been no shortage of toilet roll in my local shops though, so there’s that …

Myself and people I know are getting to the stage where the constant influx of bad news is hard to take. So today when I’m finished writing,  I’m going to bake some banana bread and try to finally sit down and read a book instead of the news. If reading’s what you guys do to keep some sanity, then great. But whatever it is – a walk (if you can in your area), playing with your dog, hanging out with your kids, baking a cake or doing some clumsy yoga (your own brand of yoga might be more graceful than mine) – whatever it is that makes life feel a little more normal today, I hope you make some time for that.

I know some folk will be off work because of all this, and books just aren’t a priority purchase. Because of that this book’ll be 99c right through till next Sunday, Plus, if you haven’t started this particular series, then book one’s gonna be free from the 25th until the 29th of March, so keep a look out for that. And if you purchase from the US or UK stores, then book two will be 99c/99p during those same dates.  If you’ve got a Kindle Unlimited subscription, my books are always free. Oh, and if you’re one of the people who’s busier then ever at work because of this, then thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I don’t know what else to say except stay safe, stay sane, and I really wish the best for you and the ones you love.

The Case of the Strange Society

Things are getting strange on Samhain Street …

Derek Carey is dead, but his family don’t think it was an accident. They think he was murdered, and all because he wanted to leave the Warlock Society.

There’s more than just Derek’s death to investigate. Katy is getting closer than ever to finding Aunt Jude, and Hamish has gone missing when she needs him most. She also discovers, finally, what the Not-So-Strange Society has been planning all along – and it’s a plan that frightens her to the core.

Samhain Street is about to change, and not for the better. An ancient evil is coming, and Katy needs to stop it in its tracks. To do that, she’ll need more than just a cup of sugary tea. She’ll need all her friends by her side, especially Ned.

But when Ned finds out that Katy is a hunter, will she still help Katy save the day?

New Release: Katy Kramer Book Three

Katy’s back with another mystery for you all.  The poor girl can’t even take some time to go to night school without finding a body in the library!  In this one, she also learns a little bit more about the mysterious Aunt Jude.

Hope you all enjoy it.  Book four, The Case of the Strange Society, will be coming in mid-late March. Blurb, cover and store links are below – as always, it’s free in Kindle Unlimited.

The Case of the Listening Library

A little knowledge is a dangerous thing …

When Katy Kramer discovers a body in the college library, the death appears to be an accident.  But like most things in Katy’s life, nothing is quite as it seems.

More deaths occur in Wentforth’s College for Wizards, and with one of Hamish’s former students as the chief suspect, Katy and Hamish are hired to solve the case and clear her name.

There are yet more mysteries which need urgent solving.  The Not-So-Strange Society’s influence seems to be spreading throughout the enclave, and only Katy, her friends, and the mysterious Society of Cacklers seem to be concerned.

Hopefully, a trip to Riddler’s Edge can reveal the answers which Katy so desperately seeks.

New Release: Holiday Heist

This one is a seasonal story, featuring Melissa, the Nemo Foundation, and three very big miracles. Will Berry also plays a very big part, so anyone who’s wondering how he’s doing since the events of All Hallowed Out, look no further.

 

Holiday Heist

A holiday heist, a powerful child, and a parolee Melissa can’t stand the sight of? It sounds like a recipe for a very Merry Solstice.

The Nemo Foundation’s kids are planning some Solstice shenanigans, but Melissa has no idea what their hijinks might entail. She’s far too busy figuring out why an emaciated wizard was drained by a harpy, and trying to keep a young weredog out of jail. Plus, the Queen of the Faeries has promised three miracles this holiday season – and in order for those three miracles to pass, Melissa must learn to trust someone she hates …

All Hallowed Out – A New Wayfair Witches Release

Hi Everyone,

It’s almost Halloween, so I’ve got a seasonal story from Wanda and the gang, called All Hallowed Out.

Halloween is coming to Riddler’s Cove.  And this year, it might just last forever …

Wanda and her coven are looking forward to the holidays.  Unfortunately, a dangerous spell is in the works, and in order to see it through, witches are being put to sleep or being murdered, without a clear connection between them all.

With the help of a hyperactive familiar, Wanda and the gang need to track down the novel which began it all.  But with all the copies quickly disappearing, and the book’s writer in a deep sleep, their task is a difficult one.  And if they can’t stop the spell in time, the world will never be the same again.

Will Berry, now imprisoned in Witchfield, might well be the only one who can help.  But only if they can bring themselves to trust him …

 

As always, this one is free in Kindle Unlimited.  The store links are below.  Happy Halloween everybody.

New Release: The Case of the Haunted House (A Katy Kramer Cozy Mystery)

I’m delighted to tell you that Katy is back. This time, around  she’s solving the Case of the Haunted House .  There was an unavoidable delay with this one, so it’s coming to you a few days after I expected. Hopefully it’s worth the wait.

As always, this one is available free to those with Kindle Unlimited subscriptions.  The blurb and the store links are below.

The Case of the Haunted House

Katy Kramer, Paranormal PI?

When Katy’s latest two cases involve haunted houses and badly-behaving mirrors, she’s feeling less like a witch hunter and more like a ghost hunter.  Together with Ned, Hamish and Cleo, she sets to work on solving the mysteries.

But as the bodies rack up, it’s clear that neither of these cases is simple.  The ghost of Jim McGinty insists his death was a murder, so Katy and her friends need to find the killer before they strike again.  It would all be so much easier if Jim would just tell them who killed him, but no one ever said that ghosts were sensible.

In a week filled with stubborn spirits, angry werewolves, unusual musicals and sexy vampires, Katy’s beginning to feel a little overwhelmed.  To top it all off, she must continue to hide the truth about herself.  Because if she tells her new friends she’s a witch hunter, she could lose them forever.

There’s someone who does know the truth, though – the irritating Wayfarer agent, Cullen Keats.  He might be the last person Katy wants as a partner, but this time around, he could be exactly what she needs …

New Release: The Case of the Wayward Witch (A Katy Kramer Cozy Mystery)

I’ve got a brand new series!  Katy Kramer, descended from a long line of witch hunters, is about to discover that witches might not be so bad, after all …

The second book in the series – The Case of the Haunted House – is due for release in late August.  And as for my other witches … they’ll be back this autumn/winter in some all-new adventures.  As always, it’s free to read in Kindle Unlimited.  The blurb and the store links are below.

The Case of the Wayward Witch

Witches are supposed to be the bad guys, right?

In the Kramer family, everyone is a witch hunter – well, everyone except the women.  But with Uncle Faster out of action, and a boyfriend-killing witch on the loose, it might finally be Katy’s time to shine.

Going deep undercover at a necromancy supply store seems like a terrifying plan, but Katy soon discovers that her new friends and neighbours aren’t quite as evil as she was led to believe.  She begins to suspect that she might be tracking the wrong witch, after all.

Will Katy discover the real killer in time?  And will she prove, once and for all, that women are up to the job?

In the latest tale from A.A. Albright, you’ll meet the feisty Katy Kramer, a wizard-turned-dog called Hamish, a sarcastic cat called Cleo, and a whole new cast of characters.  A few old favourites might also pop in to say hello …

Out Now: Riddler’s Edge Book Seven

Hi guys,

It’s first thing in the morning here, and I feel in need of a cup of coffee.  But before I do that, I want to let you know that  Book 7 of the Riddler’s Edge series went live while I was sleeping, and is now available to download.

I need to tell you ahead of time that this one’s going to be a bit of a nail-biter, guys.  Everything with Vlad’s Boys will finally come to a head, and there might be moments where the stress makes you throw your kindles and tablets against the walls.  But hold off doing that, will you?  Firstly, those devices are expensive, and secondly, believe me when I promise you that the nail-biting portion of the book does end on a high note.  You should all (hopefully) be satisfied with the way the story ends.

On a slightly more schmaltzy note,  I’d also like to tell you that I appreciate so much all of the readers who’ve read through the series so far, and signed up for my newsletter or blog to boot.

Wherever you go to keep up to date with my new releases, I’m happy to have you as a reader.

 

Here’s the blurb:

The battle is on …

Aisling and her friends have been trying to find the leader of Vlad’s Boys for a long time. Now, they finally know the truth behind the vampire gang. Unfortunately, they also know that Vlad’s Boys have a new, unknown source of power to rely on, and beating them seems like an impossible task.

But there are other troubling things happening in Riddler’s Edge. Wizards are being murdered in a very unusual way. And Greg – recently turned into a vampire – is enjoying his new life a little bit too much.

They need to find a way to turn their lollipop-loving wizard back into himself again, because without Greg on their side, the fight against Vlad’s Boys might well be lost.

Out Now: Riddler’s Edge Book Six

Happy Friday Everyone,

I’ve got a new release from Riddler’s Edge for you guys.  Book Six in the series is now available to download from Amazon.  Hopefully you all enjoy this one. The next release will be in a few weeks’ time, another tale from Riddler’s Edge, titled A Little Bit Vampy.

 Old-School Witch

Is it ever a good idea to dig up the past?

When a member of the Historical Society is murdered, there’s no magical cause to be found.  If anything, it seems like it might be a case of simple revenge.  But when the society goes on to unveil an old, forgotten school in Riddler’s Edge, it seems that there could be far more to the murder than meets the eye.

Riddler’s Edge School for the Gifted was a safe haven for supernatural children.  So why was the school set on fire in the sixties?  And why has it been forgotten until now?

In order to find the real murderer, Ash and the gang must first find the surviving students.  Along the way, they might just dig up some more secrets, too – like who is really behind the group known as Vlad’s Boys?

And until they find the answers, they have a wedding to organise, a wedding that almost everyone believes is doomed …

Out Now: Wayfair Witches Book 10

Hi all,

Forget Me Knot, the tenth adventure for Wanda Wayfair and her coven, is now available to download on Amazon.  At the beginning of this one, we find that Wanda is not only a Peacemaker, but is also married to Will Berry.  Read the book, and all will be revealed.

Forget Me Knot

All is well in Riddler’s Cove. There’s no crime, no illness, and Wanda Wayfair is engaged to Will Berry, the greatest Minister for Magical Law that the world has ever known.

Hey, wait a minute … that doesn’t sound quite right, does it? Maybe things aren’t going so well in Riddler’s Cove, after all. And if something strange is afoot, well, Wanda sure can’t be the one to solve it, because she doesn’t have an ounce of magic to her name.

When some healers are murdered, and their familiars ask Wanda for help, she begins to wonder: is she really the unempowered witch she believes herself to be? Or is someone changing the world to suit themselves?

The dead healers aren’t the only ones who need help. Two busloads of weredogs have gone missing, on their way to the holiday of a lifetime.

With her coven by her side, can Wanda regain her power? And when she does, will this strange new world finally begin to make sense?

 

As always, the book is free in Kindle Unlimited. The store links are below:
