The circus came to Halfway, and they brought the weird.

When the body of a young woman washes up in the lake, it unleashes a spiral of mystery that will bring Carlie, Gran, and Wulfric into a storm of magical warfare. Spells will fly. Curses will rain. Amidst it all, Carlie will make waffles, protect her town, and find out if a man from the distant past can join her in happy ever after.

There will be clowns. There will be vampires. There will be waffles.

With love and honor at stake, Carlie has no peer.

Guest Post

So you’re visiting my little town of Halfway, and Erin Spencer is your guide. Let me explain how Erin’s audition process went:
By Author Terry Maggert

I, with audacity of a teenaged boy, emailed her and asked her if she would take my series. She auditioned. I listened to fifteen seconds and thought, “Well. That’s that. She is Carlie.” Six books later, I think in Erin’s voice when I write about Halfway, which is a testament to how fully she embodies the people of my town, and Carlie’s world, and even Gus the Judgy cat’s occasional mrrrrowt, which I am told Erin nailed in one take.

I love audiobooks, and listen to my own. For me, audiobooks are like meeting your favorite characters all over again—a kind of magical reset that lets me start over with stories I love, set in places I want to visit. Or live. Or drink coffee in a diner that sits in a town where magic is as common as tourists.

Thanks for visiting Halfway, on behalf of Erin, and me, and everyone else who made the series happen. I hope you laugh along with us, and I’ll see you later this year with Halfway Hatched.

Left-handed. I like dragons, coffee, waffles, running, and giraffes; order unimportant. I write the Halfway Witchy, Messenger, Starcaster and Shattered Skies series, as well as contributing to many anthologies.

If I’m not at home, then I’m on the road, and if I’m on the road, I’ll be at a book event. I’ve written thirty-three novels and counting. I don’t sleep, but you probably guessed that already. If you want me to visit your town for an event, let me know when and where. See you out there.

EXCERPT:

Jeff scowled. If this punk stole something, would he get fired? If it was the wrong thing, maybe. So Jeff stopped at the end of the aisle, straightening cans, just close enough to notice the kid was muttering to himself. Jeff sidled closer.

But that didn’t stop the boy from pulling something off the shelf, ripping it open, and eating it right in front of him. Oh, hell no.

“Umm, are you going to pay for that?”

The kid ignored him, jamming another handful into his mouth.

“Hey, kid, I said…” Jeff trailed off. The kid was shoving batteries into his mouth, chomping on them like they were carrot sticks. What the fuck?

As he stared, the kid dropped the package of AAs and ripped into another. Chewing and snorting like a pig as he ate.

“Is this some sort of reality TV show?” Jeff looked over his shoulder. “Kevin? Maggie? You can come out now, I’m not buying this. It’s not funny. You can stop now.”

But no one answered. There was no hey, you got me. No hidden camera crew came out and explained what was going on. Just some weird kid making his way through a twenty count package of batteries. Must be drugs then. People did all sorts of crazy things on drugs.

That’s it. Jeff didn’t like being pushy, but he was going to have to put his foot down. If the boy was high, there was no telling what other crazy stuff he was going to pull. Jeff tapped on his shoulder. “Excuse me, but I’m going to have to ask you to leave.”

The kid turned and smiled in a rictus of jagged teeth, ringed with blood. His pupils were constricted into sharp points that didn’t meet Jeff’s gaze as he crammed the last handful of batteries into his mouth.

Oh, shit.
