As a tiny treat (or a terrible torture, depending on your viewpoint), I’m going to post a mini excerpt from Widdershins each day in the run-up to publication on 1 July. The novel is about the 17th century witch trials that took place in Newcastle when a witchfinder was fetched down from Scotland.
So, if you don’t want to read any of it before you read the book, look away now! If you want to buy a copy, you can order it from Amazon, Blackwells, Book Depository, Foyles, iTunes, Waterstones or WH Smith Kobo. If you want to read some reviews, you can check them out on Goodreads or Amazon.
‘A stick of cinnamon and a thumb of ginger to each pint of honey. That should be enough fire to warm everyone’s chests this winter.’
