As Maggie James has managed to get the rights back for all the books she originally published under Bloodhound books and is re-publishing them with new covers I thought today I would celebrate this by running a promotional post with all the new covers as well as the other books that Maggie has published.
All of the books are available through Amazon, or if you prefer listening to them then most are also available through Audible.
I have read or listened to most of Maggie’s books and can confirm that they are all amazing and worth reading.

When Tilly, under Chloe’s malignant influence, becomes dangerously unstable, the consequences are ugly. Megan’s world falls apart. Her sister’s out of control and there’s little she can do about it.
