February and March 2022 Update

Owl Melt with You in the Owl Star Witch was released in February, and I got so busy I forgot to make an updates post. Oops. I definitely try to keep this updated, but I’m religious about sending out weekly newsletters so if you want to make sure you get the skinny, sign up! I’m currently writing Bring Your Beach Owl, a Spring Break-themed mystery that will take the Arden sisters to Cocoa Beach, Florida, and smack into the center of another murder. That book will be out in April 2022, and is available for preorder on Amazon now. Finally, Owl Star Witch series has gotten new covers! I honestly really liked the old ones but it appears that vectors are not the most popular way to go these days. I also got a lot of questions as to whether the book was meant for children or adults (indicating that the covers were a bit too juvenile for a grown-up cozy.) I hope you like them.

January 2022 Update

Owl Melt with You in the Owl Star Witch will be coming out in just a couple of weeks. This one is lightly Valentine’s Day themed, and marks a return to classic murder mystery for me. (With Covid, I took a bit of a break from dead bodies at the beginning of the series.) I’m currently writing Bring Your Beach Owl, a Spring Break-themed mystery that will take the Arden sisters to Cocoa Beach, Florida, and smack into the center of another murder. That book will be out in April 2022, and is available for preorder on Amazon now. Hope your 2022 has started off great!

December 2021 Update

Owl About Yule in the Owl Star Witch series came out this month, and so far it’s gotten . Thanks so much to everyone who took the time to rate and review it! It was my first Christmas-themed para-cozy, and I was a little nervous about it’s direction, but I’m very glad you liked it. I’m currently writing Owl Melt with You, a Valentine’s Day-themed mystery. For just a few more days, the full 8-book Magical Midway series will be available in a .99 bundle in all markets on Amazon. January 1, 2022, it will return to its regular price so grab it quickly if you want it at the holiday season price. Next year will see 6 more releases in the Owl Star Witch series currently scheduled for (roughly): 2/10, 4/14, 6/16, 8/18, 10/20 and 12/22. Have a great rest of the year, and a happy holiday!

November 2021 Update

Owl About Yule should be out in a week or two, it’s just getting polished and primped for its debut. This is a Christmas-themed entry in the Owl Star Witch series, and as such it will be a bit different. While there’s still a mystery to be solved, it will also borrow a bit from Charles Dicken’s A Christmas Carol as Astra struggles with her lack of belief in the Greek gods that have given her Archie and the star power. I’m beginning work on Owl Melt with You on Monday, a Valentine’s Day-themed mystery. For the rest of 2021, as a holiday treat, the full 8-book Magical Midway series will be available in a .99 bundle in all markets on Amazon. January 1, 2022, it will return to its regular price of $19.99.

October 2021 Update

Heavy Meddle Magic (Book 4) was released a couple of weeks early this month, and some of the reviews actually made me tear up a little, people. Specifically, Butterflies and Birch Reviews said: Leanne Leeds is an author that’s great at translating a moral of the story in her books. Few cozy authors convey the “heart” of a book better than Leeds. It’s one of the reasons I’m such a fan. This book was especially deep with lots of ideas to contemplate. and I had an “Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww” moment. Thanks so much! I’m sending out a survey this month to my readers to better understand ya’ll’s preference on the speed of series releases vs. the variety of series options. If you could swing by and fill out the anonymous survey, that would be awesome.
