Synopsis:
Everything you thought you knew about witches is wrong. They are much darker, and they are much more horrifying. Wytches takes the mythology of witches to a far creepier, bone-chilling place than readers have dared venture before. When the Rooks family moves to the remote town of Litchfield, NH to escape a haunting trauma, they're hopeful about starting over. But something evil is waiting for them in the woods just beyond town. Watching from the trees. Ancient...and hungry.

Collects Wytches #1-6.

This year so far


I really don't know where this year has gone. How are we already a few days into July?

These past 6 months have been very busy for me, I've finished up studying Illustration at university, fully cleaned my flat and moved back home, and I've applied for jobs and had interviews (nothing successful yet).

On the more fun side of things I've read a bunch of great books and made some great friends on my Discord book chat. I've celebrated a year in a long distance relationship and we've had some fun trips out together which have been great. And lastly, I've played some really cool video games - I'm toying with the idea of sharing some min reviews of them here.
