"I am very happy," stated Ms. Kirchman, 'to be included in the book '50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading.' It’s too bad you can’t see my grin from ear to ear. I am delighted, because it’s a way of putting me and my book on a higher level of profile. When you consider how hard it is to get promoted in today’s publishing world, it is a great honor to be part of a book such as '50 Great Writers...'

'Witchcanery' spins the tale of Shelley Kesinkowsky who, at the age of 312 is a relatively young, modern-day witch. And she has internet access. Nowadays, when she gets messages from witch headquarters, it comes via email, much neater than the old method of being dropped on the doorstep by a raven. However, on the day that Shelley is deeply depressed by the anniversary of her beloved adopted son Brad's death, she is roused out of her blues by not one, not two, but three emails, only one of which is junk mail. The other two are from the powers that be in her life--the Witches' Sabben and the Grand Council of Wizards, and each of these powerful bodies want her to do something different. The Sabben wants Shelley to close up shop in Iowa and move to Montana for some environmental applications.

At the same time, apparently, Planet Earth is in deep trouble from the golem legionnaires of Mother Earth herself, who has blown her top over the sloppy environmental practices of Earth's humans. Thus, Shelley's special golem-creating ability becomes a high-ticket commodity. The Grand Council of Wizards orders Shelley to build a special golem that will mysteriously keep Earth alive, at least until they can think up an alternative plan. Shelley opts to follow the all-powerful Grand Council's orders. As if that's not enough for her to deal with, the Council teams Shelley up with her wizardly nemesis, Jason. Unknown to the young witch, however, is the deadly card the wizard has up his sleeve, should Shelley's golem fail the task.

"I am grateful," continued Ms. Kirchman, "to Danielle Hampson, Don McCauley and the staff at The Authors Show. Great and caring people very often produce great and caring products. This book is one of those."
