Why I Re-released The Cupcake Coven by Ashlyn Chase (light paranormal romance author)

Cupcake Coven Cover-edit (2)

The Cupcake Coven (a new and improved version) has been RE-RELEASED!



OR GET IT ON amazon, kobo, ARe and BookStrand and very soon on B&N.

Because I took down my self-published version of THE CUPCAKE COVEN and gave it to Lachesis Publishing (only because I’m a terrible business person, and would rather write more books than keep track of sales, distribution, etc.) B&N is making sure Lachesis has the right to republish it. It’s in their review process, so it will be up very soon.

I’m actually glad these outlets make sure our books are legit. I’ve heard about some unscrupulous imposters stealing book rights and republishing them under their own names. This is, of course, illegal. Copyright infringement carries a penalty of $250,000 and 5 years in jail. Don’t even think about it! Readers WILL contact the book sellers or authors to report when book they already read and loved has popped up again–usually with a different cover.

My cover is the same as before. Because it’s so unique I hope readers will recognize it as a book they’ve already bought. Although, if they want to buy the new version too, I won’t be upset. (wink)
I love the new book. I paid for an editor before, but my new Lachesis Publishing editor did an even better job

That’s why I’ve decided I love traditional publishing instead of Indie publishing. I have a whole new appreciation for all the work a publisher does for me, and they take the financial risk! Yes, I give up some of the royalties, but as far as I’m concerned, they earn their share.

SNEAK PEEK: THE CUPCAKE COVEN by ASHLYN CHASE (light paranormal romance)

Cupcake Coven Cover-edit (2)Today’s SNEAK PEEK is A NEW RELEASE!!! The delightful light paranormal romance THE CUPCAKE COVEN by ASHLYN CHASE. Book 1 Love Spells Gone Wrong Series



Pretty Wiccan Rebecca Colby borrowed money from her father to start a bakery, and now he’s calling the loan due. When she learns he fell off the gambling wagon and owes big money to some scary people, she has to start making a profit—and fast—before the loan shark takes a bite out of her.

Hot Cowboy Dru Tanner is looking for his missing sister who left Texas to explore their New England Wiccan roots. She’s the only family he has left, and he’s desperate to find her. Dru has to hide the fact that he’s not a Wiccan long enough to infiltrate a coven in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. It’s the only lead he has.

Dru needs a job and a place to stay while he searches for his sister. Rebecca needs cheap help so she can work some baking magic. Dru makes Rebecca an offer she can’t refuse—if only lust doesn’t drive them crazy first.


The bell above the door tinkled, signaling a customer. Jumping to her feet, Rebecca mumbled into the phone, “I’ll have to call you back, Dad.” She hung up and took a deep breath to compose herself.

Plastering a smile on her face, she turned toward the counter and caught her first glimpse of the most incredible man she’d ever seen. He was tall, at least six feet. His jeans hugged lean hips in such a way as to leave little to the imagination, yet he moved in them casually, looking totally comfortable.

When he reached the counter a gorgeous smile softened his rugged features. Blue eyes and sandy brown hair peaked out from under the well-worn cowboy hat. Am I looking at a real live cowboy here in New England?

He tipped the brim of his hat. “Mornin’ ma’am. Or I should say good afternoon. I guess it’s past noontime, after all.”

If he was rambling a little bit, she was grateful for it. She didn’t think she could speak right away.

“I was wonderin’ . . . that help-wanted sign in the window . . . ?”

Shoot. Should she tell the guy she might not be in business very long? Her Wiccan values had her believing that honesty was the best policy, but she could at least let him finish his sentence.

“Yes?” she prompted.

“Well, this is gonna sound pretty stupid if I’m wrong . . .”

His hesitation only lasted a moment. Then he gazed into her eyes with his piercing blue ones. “Are you by any chance a witch? Because if so, maybe we can help each other. I’m willin’ to trade my services for your help findin’ my sister.”

That sure wasn’t what she expected him to say. She almost tipped her head toward the ceiling to thank the Goddess.

“I—uh . . .Yes. I’m Wiccan. Do you want a locator spell?”

“Sure. If that’ll help me find her.” He reached into his shirt pocket and produced a picture of a young woman. She resembled him, but she looked much younger. Long blonde hair tumbled down from a similar cowboy hat, and she wore a checkered shirt, but the major similarities were her blue eyes and easy smile.

Rebecca hadn’t done a locator spell in a long time. And she’d never done one to find a human being, but the trade was a perfect idea. Witches aren’t supposed to make money by performing spells for other people, but a trade to save some money doesn’t count. Does it? She’d ask Hanna, later. For now, she was intrigued by the idea and the cowboy was waiting for an answer.

“Can you bake?”

He laughed. “I can learn.”

“No need. There are plenty of other ways you can help. I’ll have you fill out an application, and later I’ll check your references. By the way, our coven is meeting tonight. Would you be interested in attending?”

His brows shot up. After a brief hesitation he asked, “Do you think that’ll help me find my sister?”

“It might. You could also check out Myranda’s Occult Shop. She’s got loads of expertise and you can find any ingredients you need for a spell there.”

“A spell . . . Uh, sure, I’ll talk to Myranda.”

“Good! I hope to see you tonight,” she said. “I’ll get you that application now, and if your references are good you can start tomorrow.”

“Great. Can I get that application with a side of cherry pie?”

“Sure thing.” She smiled, already feeling a bit lighter.
