No one is perfect—not even a witch. Witches have amazing power at their fingertips to do unbelievable things. That magic can come in really handy sometimes too. They can make someone fall in love, poison an apple to enact a sleeping curse, banish an enemy to an alternate reality, or just to conjure up some Nutella when there is none in the house.
But what happens when those spells go horribly awry?
SonofaWitch! contains six humorous contemporary fantasy stories of magic spells gone wrong by Laura VanArendonk Baugh, Sara Dobie Bauer, Lissa Marie Redmond, Frances Pauli, Mara Malins, and Adam Millard.
SonofaWitch! will be available in ebook and paperback October 3, 2017. Add it to your Goodreads To-Read Shelf now!

About the Authors
Sara Dobie Bauer is a writer, model, and mental health advocate with a creative writing degree from Ohio University. Her short story, "Don't Ball the Boss," was nominated for the Pushcart Prize, inspired by her shameless crush on Benedict Cumberbatch. She lives with her hottie husband and two precious pups in Northeast Ohio, although she'd really like to live in a Tim Burton film. She is a member of RWA and author of the paranormal rom-com Bite Somebody, among other ridiculously entertaining things. Read more at http://SaraDobieBauer.com or find her on Twitter @SaraDobie.

She has work forthcoming with Pen and Kink Publishing. Her story “Classification of Nerd” appears in Covalent Bonds.
Adam Millard is the author of twenty-two novels, twelve novellas, and more than two hundred short stories, which can be found in various collections, magazines, and anthologies. Probably best known for his post-apocalyptic and comedy-horror fiction, Adam also writes fantasy/horror for children, as well as bizarro fiction for several publishers. His work has recently been translated for the German market.
Frances Pauli is a hybrid author of over twenty novels. She favors speculative fiction, romance, and furry fiction. She frequently crosses genre barriers, believes in a hearty dose of humor, and has been known to experiment with serials, text novels, flash, and micro-fiction.
Lissa Marie Redmond lives and writes in Buffalo with her husband and two daughters. Her “James the Hipster” stories have appeared in two previous World Weaver Press anthologies: Frozen Fairy Tales and He Sees You When He’s Creepin’: Tales of Krampus.
Laura VanArendonk Baugh was born at a very early age and never looked back. She overcame childhood deficiencies of having been born without teeth or developed motor skills, and by the time she matured into a recognizable adult she had become a behavior analyst, an internationally-recognized and award-winning animal trainer, a popular costumer/cosplayer, a tabletop gamer, a chocolate addict, and of course a writer. Laura's stories have also appeared in the World Weaver Press anthologies Fae, Equus, and Covalent Bonds. Find her at www.LauraVanArendonkBaugh.com
About the Anthologist
Trysh Thompson has written just about every form of non-fiction you can think of—everything from news, movie reviews, magazine columns, marketing hype, software manuals, and was even an editorial assistant on a gardening book no one has ever read (The 7-Minute Organic Garden—see, you’ve never heard of it, have you?). To keep from being slowly and torturously bored to death by her day job, she turned to fiction as means of escape—reading it, writing it, and editing it. She also edited the geek romance anthology Covalent Bonds.
