Tell us a little about your main character
Gracie is rather complicated. She’s trying to figure out what she wants in life, like a lot of seventeen-year-olds. She also has a strong sense of loyalty and a fuzzy moral compass.
Gracie is the person you’d want in the foxhole with you, as she’d do anything to get everyone out alive.

About the Book
Pink Lock Picks and Sequined Witch Hats by Carla Rehse
Genre: YA Urban Fantasy
Witches must bond with humans in order to produce children—and once the bond is made, it cannot easily be broken.
Imagine seventeen-year-old Gracie Mason’s surprise when she accidentally bonds with a witch named Asher. Sure, he’s cute, but that’s beside the point. She’s not gonna settle for a guy just because she’s magically bound to him.
To dissolve the bond, Gracie must seek out another witch to perform a magical rite. However, matters become considerably more complicated when witches begin turning up dead. Wanting nothing more than to get on with her life, Gracie must now team up with her new witchy friend and wade deeper into a complex world of enchantment and intrigue.
Pink Lock Picks and Sequined Witch Hats is an enthralling story of magic, mystery, and murder—and each new twist will draw you further under its spell.
Pink Lock Picks and Sequined Witch Hats will be on sale for $0.99 until 12-1-17.
