News Flash: It’s a new book!

Posted on October 13th, 2017

The Guardianship of Julian St. Albans by Amy Crook on Amazon

It’s finally done! Paperbacks tba, I’m waiting on proofs in the mail, but for those of you who prefer them they’re on the way soon.

In the third Consulting Magic novel, after a peaceful holiday interlude (Rosemary for the Holidays short story), Julian St. Albans and Alexander Benedict return for more murder, mystery, magic, and… marriage?

Julian and Alex want to begin building a new holiday cottage near the Magical Source on the St. Albans’ land, and working on a magical garden for their Guardian friends, but their plans for cozy domesticity are quickly shattered as Alex is called in to consult on a strange new murder case.

Julian is drawn into his own mystery when he is trapped by a curse. Alex and their friends have to rescue Julian, solve the mounting murders, and protect each other from the malevolent force clearly at work.

As Alex and Julian work together, their magics and their relationship grow and lead them down a mysterious and exciting path, introducing them to new friends they never could have imagined.

Untrue Love by Amy Crook on AmazonThe Courtship of Julian St. Albans by Amy Crook on AmazonUntrue Love, the short story mystery-only prequel to my Consulting Magic series, is FREE through Tuesday on Amazon Kindle.

The Courtship of Julian St. Albans, the first book in this series of m/m romance, mystery, and magic, is on sale for a mere 99ยข through next week on Amazon Kindle.

Devil and Ghost

Posted on September 19th, 2017

Devil and Ghost, Inception parody art by Amy Crook

Devil and Ghost, 7″x5″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

Is this where I just admit I have sold a LOT of these chibi commissions lately? But they’re just so fun, I have no regrets.

color test ghostThese are for Halloween, of course! Arthur and Eames from Inception coming back again as the Devil and a ghost. Arthur is smarming it up in his red velvet suit, straightening his cuffs as he leans nonchalantly in wait. Eames is looking extra spiffy floating along in his vintage windowpane check.

And of course on the right I have the little sketch ghost I drew just to test Eames’ colors before the real thing. Boo!

These are drawn as close to a square aspect ratio as possible, so that they work as emoji on Slack. Their adorable 2-head-high chibi style conveys a lot of personality in a tiny space.
