Welcome to The Witchy Boys blog tour by Katey Hawthorne. Katey has a wonderful Guest Post and she has a generous Giveaway.
Hello, and thanks so much for having me here at GGR! I have a new, spooky/sexy read out for the upcoming holiday (my fave!). It’s called WITCHY BOYS: SEXY STORIES FOR DARK NIGHTS, and features two different novelettes about… okay you can probably guess from the title. But yes. Witches.
So hey, why not talk about some of my favorite fictional witches, right? Here’s a list of some awesome ones, in no particular order!
-Queenie from “American Horror Story: Coven” – Of all the girls at Miss Robicheaux’s Academy, I gotta say Queenie was my fave. (With Nan in a close second, tbh.) Her arc was by far and away the most interesting and complex, her voo doo doll powers were original and her own, and her ending was divine. (We do not speak of “Hotel”.)
-Morgana Pendragon from “Merlin” – Look, that whole show was based on Merlin betraying his own people as they continued to be murdered and persecuted just so the persecutor white boy could stay king. Morgana, on the other hand, fought back, loud and proud. That’s my kinda witch. I’ve loved every incarnation of her in every Arthurian thing I’ve ever read or seen since I was a kid. My precious Morgana.
-Natsu Dragneel from “Fairy Tale” – I haven’t finished this one yet, but oh my god is it amazing. Natsu and his familiar cat, Happy, are so cracky and fun. And what can I say, I have a weakness for magic and superhero powers revolving around fire.
-Toby Daye from the October Daye series by Seanan McGuire – These boooooooks. Okay, technically Toby is Fae, not a witch, but I think it counts. The magic–hers smells like copper and cut grass–is so brilliant here… I just have to. Have you read them? Oh man. So good.
-Morrigan from the “Dragon Age” series of games – Most magic-users aren’t known as “witches” in the DA universe, but Morrigan is an exception, a “witch of the wilds”, raised by her mysterious and immortal mother Flemeth in the forest and then thrust into an adventure she never asked for. But she always has her own agenda, separate even from her mother’s (… well, no spoilers), and I love that about Morrigan. Also, she’s a bad ass, so there’s that.
-Sirius Black from “Harry Potter” – Oh, you knew there had to be a Potterverse character in here, right? Let me count the ways I love Sirius Black. A loyal friend, a powerful wizard, tenacious and tough as hell, surviving terrifying imprisonment for a crime he never committed. Not just that, but he fought back against his racist, asshole family from a very young age. Bless you, Sirius.
Okay this list could go on all day. Gimme some of yours in the comments and enter to win the giveaway! What witches do you love to read/see/play about?

Just in time for Halloween! Two novelettes about men with magic—and the occasional demon.
“Blood Magic and the Mini Zombie Apocalypse”
Griff has a bad habit of getting talked into black magic he shouldn’t be using—but this time it’s even worse. His ex is bent on revenge in the form of a mini zombie apocalypse, and the only person who can help Griff is a hottie white magic practitioner named Blythe. The catch: one of Griff’s spells gone wrong left Blythe with a haunted apartment a year ago, and Blythe isn’t over it.
Still, Blythe agrees to work with Griff. As they unravel the ugly blood, sex, and death magic, they also discover surprising things about each other. Hopefully, it’s enough for the ultimate trust they’ll need to defeat a lot of zombies and a crazed witch, or their town will end up covered in corpses.
Six years ago, Thackeray agreed to let a demon haunt him in exchange for help hunting other demons. It’s a lonely life, but worth it to be the best demon hunter possible — to save families from the kind of evil that ruined his own childhood.
This Hallowe’en, Thackeray’s dealing with an upstart coven. A powerful, pretty witch named Matt defects to help Thackeray stop their scheme to invite god-knows-what from the other side.
