Cooking Up Magick

After many beta readers and about a billion pass-throughs, my book, Cooking Up Magick, is in developmental editing. I eagerly await the feedback, so I can wrangle it into its final form.

What's it about? Well, think Rachel Ray meets The Lord of the Rings. Here's a blurb:

Paisley Dell dreams of traveling the world, meeting new people, and learning how to cook their food. When two friendly dwarfs offer to escort her through orc territory to the dwarven city of Garastrade, the bubbly halfling chef jumps at the chance.

During her travels, she makes new friends, including a mysterious elven ranger, a magickal cat that only talks to her, and a handsome half-orc. Paisley’s cooking adventure gets turned upside down when she discovers the ability to use magick. There hasn’t been a newly awakened sorcerer in Erdea in over 500 years. To make matters worse, the dark sorcerer Verzod has returned from a long absence and is intent on conquering the world. With her newfound powers, Paisley may be the one thing that can stand in his way.

The problem? She needs to master her magick without attracting the dark sorcerer’s attention. Will Paisley be able to cook up a solution to her dilemma, or will Verzod serve her and her friends their last meal?

Cooking Up Magick is a lighthearted epic fantasy that spans four books. If you would like to be kept up to date on launch day progress, please join my newsletter!
