Witch Cozy Mystery - The Silent Banshee - free today and tomorrow

I've written the next book in my witch cozy under my pen name of April Fernsby. It's now live and it's free today and tomorrow - 1st and 2nd September.

The Silent Banshee:

Cassia Winter is a witch. With the help of her cat, Stanley, she investigates crimes in the magical town of Brimstone. This story sees them dealing with the death of a banshee called Dana Murphy.

On the morning of her death, Dana Murphy’s dying scream produces a huge amount of energy that rushes through the town of Brimstone. The energy makes its way to Cassia’s world and sends her flying off her feet. Upon entering Brimstone, Cassia is told that as the town banshee, Dana predicted many deaths - but apparently not her own.

Cassia and Stanley investigate Dana’s death and are confronted with the grim reality of how she died. They discover that more than one resident in Brimstone had a reason to put an end to Dana’s special talent.

As well as dealing with the murder investigation, Cassia is confronted with help from an unlikely source. Stanley immediately feels uneasy, and that unease grows as they delve further into Dana’s murder.

A New Pen Name - April Fernsby

I have a new pen name - April Fernsby. I'll be writing paranormal mysteries under this name, so if you like witches, vampires and werewolves in your mysteries, you'll like my new stories.

I've already published the first book under my new pen name and it will be free on the 19th and 20th May. If you have Kindle Unlimited, you can read it for free anytime. Here are the details:

Murder Of A Werewolf

A Paranormal Cozy Mystery

Brimstone - a town where supernatural beings live - and where crime is on the increase.

Just like her gran, Cassia Winter is a witch. The Winter witches are responsible for investigating crimes in Brimstone. The only problem is, Cassia doesn’t know she’s a witch yet.

When Gran tells Cassia about her true nature, Cassia dismisses it as nonsense. But a terrible incident causes Cassia to change her mind. With her cat, Stanley, at her side, Cassia enters Brimstone and is soon investigating the murder of a werewolf.

Retired widows, Connie and Sable Butterworth, have set up a private investigating business. In this story, Connie’s daughter, Debra, asks them to help one of her friends.
Nerys and Dale Spencer have been together since they met at school. They are now happily married with children. Or so Connie thought. She is shocked to discover that Nerys has filed for divorce. After speaking to Nerys, Connie and Sable soon have misgivings about the solicitor Nerys hired.
Before Connie and Sable can confront the solicitor, Bruno Ridgeway, they discover he’s been murdered. And Dale Spencer is the prime suspect.
Connie believes Dale to be innocent and sets out to prove it.
