Paranormal Women's Fiction (PWF) and Romance
Secrets broke her heart... and have now come back from the grave to haunt her.
So far, Lorna Addams’ forties are not what she expected. After a very public embarrassment, she finds it difficult to trust her judgment when it comes to new friendships and dating. She might be willing to give love a second chance when she meets the attractive William Warrick, if only she could come to terms with what her husband did to her and leave it in the past.
How is a humiliated empty nest widow supposed to move on with her life? It’s not like she can develop a sixth sense, séance her ex back, force him to tell her why and give her closure. Or can she?

5 Stars! "(This) book was riveting! It's a rollercoaster read through so many ups and downs. Super cool in the friendships of the three women. Great ending!"
"So, I read Second Chance Magic yesterday. Without giving it away I just wanted Michelle Pillow to know I finished the last 8 chapters between 10 and 11 pm while I was all alone in my kitchen. I had to call my husband in to walk me to our bedroom because I was too scared to walk down the dark hallway by myself. So yeah, thanks for that."

PWF = PARANORMAL WOMEN'S FICTION
You might have heard several of us authors talking about it online, but I want to talk a little bit about why we're doing PWF.
We are not inventing books with 40+ heroines. We are hoping to define a place for them amongst other genres. There are so many great stories already with older women dealing with real life issues (and magical ones, cause paranormal is just cool), but often these books are lumped in with genre titles amongst new adult books and can be hard to find.
Older women kick ass. They know things. They've been there. They are worthy of their own literature category. They stopped giving a fuck. They also have their own set of issues that they face--empty nests, widows, divorce, menopause, health, etc--and these issues deserve to be addressed and embraced in literature.
Women friendships matter. Women matter. Our thoughts and feelings matter.
Growing older is a real part of life. No need to hide in the shadows. Unless you're like a vampire and like shadows. Then by all means, skulk away.
Need a reference point? Think the book/movie Practical Magic for an idea of the feel we're talking about.
★★ PWF = Paranormal Women's Fiction ★★
