Some prey bites back.

Welcome to Halfway; where the waffles are golden, the moon is silver, and magic is just around every corner.

A century-old curse is broken, releasing Exit Wainwright, an innocent man trapped alone in time. Lost and in danger, he enlists Carlie, Gran, and their magic to find the warlock who sentenced him to a hundred years of darkness.

The hunter becomes the hunted when Carlie’s spells awaken a cold-blooded killer intent on adding another pelt to their gruesome collection: hers.

But the killer has never been to Halfway before, where there are three unbreakable rules:

  1. Don’t complain about the diner’s waffles
  2. Don’t break the laws of magic
  3. Never threaten a witch on her home turf

Can Carlie solve an ancient crime, defeat a ruthless killer, and save the love of her life from a vampire’s curse without burning the waffles?

Come hunt with Carlie, and answer the call of the wild.

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.
