A little magic can go a long way — to really screwing up a girl’s life! Mara is having the worst month of her life. At least, that’s what her tarot cards tell her and they’ve never been wrong. She’s evicted from her apartment, loses her job and is banned from Beverly Hills. When the cards predict her imminent demise, she uses a little magic to make her world right.
Suddenly, an aunt she’s never met dies, leaving Mara as her sole heir. But when Mara moves into her inherited home, she discovers Aunt Tillie never moved out. She’s still one pissed-off old lady, even post-mortem, and she blames Mara’s magical meddling for her death.
When Mara accidentally releases a demon and awakens the spirit of the most powerful witch in history, Tillie’s ready to kill her. Literally. It’s the only way she can think of to save the girl from herself. The witch and the demon, however, have other plans for Mara’s body!
Somebody Tell Aunt Tillie She’s Dead is a quirky urban fantasy that mixes humor, suspense and witchcraft. Whether you’re looking for a fun read to pass the time, a spell to bring your true love to you, or a manual on witchcraft, you’ll find it in Somebody Tell Aunt Tillie She’s Dead!

Praise for MALICIOUS:
‘This is a chilling story, superbly written, with captivating and unique characters. The pace is vigorous with twists and turns, storyline is potent, candid, and engaging. An awesome, captivating novel which I highly recommend,’ Nancy Silk Reviews blog.
Malicious is a wonderful, fast-paced work of fiction. The plot is timely and the details add to the authenticity.’ Bestsellersworld Review.
‘If this thriller does not give you the willies and make you want to never turn on your computer again, nothing will. James Raven has expertly woven a twisted tale that comes a little too close to reality. I was overjoyed that my laptop doesn’t have a webcam. Suspenseful, heart-pounding and all too real; Malicious will have you putting tape over your webcam or getting rid of it altogether. Superb!‘ Readers’ Favorite Review.
‘I read from cover to cover in one day. I love crime stories. The story allows u to connect to the main character Robyn Tate. Her exhausted state of mind and her low self-esteem issues have made us feel “this could be me”. Then the story opens and her world becomes a desperate journey to protect her secrets from the world. I felt for her every chapter I passed and wanted her to prevail. This is a great read,’ Goodreads Review.
‘Raven’s fast paced storytelling replete with superb tension and suspense immediately seduces you. His protagonist, Robyn Tate is a memorable character with her dark secret, yet all the more attractive for being flawed. As an added bonus, not only is Malicious a slick thriller but a novel that investigates the troubling issue of computer crimes that after its reading will force you to re-examine your own situation. What would you do if you found out that someone was spying on you through your webcam? Beware. It is possible,’ Bookpleasures Review
