What is your favorite treat?

Hello kitten!

If you're a new reader, welcome! I'm Nyx Halliwell, and my sidekick Princess Winnie and I are delighted to have you in our magical space!

And if you're a regular, thank you for being here!

🐈‍⬛ Winnie and I were discussing treats this weekend (because she was demanding more than her normal allotment.) Her favorite, even more than her special fish blend cookies, is catnip. I love chocolate. We want to know what is your favorite treat? Comment and tell us.

Are you enjoying the read along of Candy and Creeps? Another chapter releases Wednesday! What's this? Read the explanation below and come read along with us!

For my paid REAM subscribers, a new Willowbrook story releases this week, too! The Magical Meow-sical Mystery features Ember, Oliver, and of course, Clover. Don't miss it!

We can't wait to hear what your favorite treat is!

💜 Nyx & Princess Winnie 🐾

FREE episodes of Tricks and Treats

Welcome to Enchanted Haven, where every day feels like a bewitching celebration and a candy-coated mystery is about to unfold… 

Tricks and Treats, A Witchy Candy Shop Mystery, Book 1, is up for preorder! I can't wait to share Seraphina's adventures with you in this new witchy candy shop series.

Here's more about the first story, Tricks and Treats, and at the end is a link to read the first three chapters for FREE!

Seraphina, a faerytale princess with a flair for creating delicious treats, once enjoyed a happily-ever-after life in a dreamy kingdom…until the death of her best friend cast a dark shadow over her family, and she was exiled to the land of humans.

She's hardly had time to unpack her bags when she and her estranged godmother are offered the chance to open a candy shop. Seraphina’s royal gown is replaced with an apron and her tiara with a candy-striped headband before she has a chance to revive the run-down place with a dash of magic. 

When a local resident is found murdered during a Halloween party, and the evidence points to Seraphina as the killer, she becomes ensnared in a sticky mystery. To clear her name and bring the true culprit to justice, she embarks on a journey filled with candied clues, mystical riddles, and magical mishaps. 

Along with her eclectic godmother, gingerbread men spies, and a flaky ghost, Seraphina discovers that the line between reality and faerytales is more sour than she ever imagined. With every spell she casts and every confection she conjures, she inches closer to unveiling the truth behind the murder…and secretly hoping for a chance at her own redemption.

A Witchy Valentine’s Day poem from me and Princess Winnie 💜🐾💜

Happy Valentine's Day!

A Witchy Valentine's Day poem for you from me and Princess Winnie 💜🐾💜

In the mystic moon's soft glow,  

Where love's enchantments sweetly flow, 

Witches dance in joyful cheer,  

Spreading magic far and near.

With potions brewed and spells so bright,  

Weave hearts together in the night.  

Underneath the starry skies,  

Whispering secrets, love's true ties.

Gather 'round the cauldron's flame,  

Let your heart's desires proclaim.  

For on this special Valentine's Day,  

Witchy love will find its way.

So cast your charms and spells with glee,  

For love and magic set us free.  

In the witching hour, let love play,  

Happy Valentine's, witches, today!

Nyx & Princess Winnie

What is your favorite color?

Hello, kittens!

I love the color purple. Also, pink and silver. Occasionally, black and white (like Princess Winnie's fur!)

Purple is my favorite, though. Every time I wear it, someone compliments me. I swear, they are my people! I should start a club for purple lovers. My favorite mug is purple and I have a box of purple pens.

Experts claim that a person’s favorite color says a lot about their personality. Whether you fancy blue tones or red shades, the colors you prefer offer fascinating insight into your character.

‘Character’, hmm…I’m pretty sure most of my characters love purple, too!

So what does that say about us? I looked it up and found this: Those who love purple are intriguing, lovely, and down to earth. I like it!

This month, my cozy author bestie, Molly Fitz, is spotlighting me in her REAM community AND she's holding a super magical giveaway!

Check out her Cozy Kitty Club and be sure to enter the giveaway!

Chasing Clues Among Falling Leaves

Hello, kitten. Happy Halloween!

What a delicious season. The cool weather and falling leaves make me want to curl up with a cup of tea and a good story. Also, candy! How about you?

Thank you to everyone who helped launch the release of Wedding Bells & Psychic Spells. Your support and reviews made my whole month! I can’t wait to get started on the next Ava caper, but in the meantime, I’m working hard on the new 2024 Candy Shop Witch series. I plan to have three books to release next year for you, and I hope to share snippets of them with you soon.

I've share a cover reveal in my latest newsletter, along with a poll to vote for the name of the candy shop. You can see the *sweet* cover and add your pick here: https://nyxhalliwellauthor.substack.com/p/chasing-clues-among-falling-leaves

I’ll share the winning name in next month’s newsletter, so be sure you've subscribed and be on the lookout for it!
