Bitchcraft is a supernatural & paranormal anthology with stories by J.A. Cummings, S.B. Rhodes, Lindy S. Hudis, Katie Jaarsveld, J.M. Goodrich.

A young girl accused of witchcraft in the late 1500s, a grandmother’s dying request, three girls who get more than they bargained for while seeking revenge, college students who play with forces they do not understand, and a woman’s search for her ancestor’s legacy. Take a look inside to learn more about the witches of Bitchcraft.

I think it's pretty obvious why what attracted me to Bitchcraft - it was the title! As well as the neat the cover art.

Bitchcraft is a supernatural anthology featuring the stories Phoenix Rising by S.B. Rhodes, Tabitha by J.A. Cummings, The Summoning by Lindy S. Hudis, Hidden Consequences by Katie Jaarsveld, and Dead Girls Don't Cry by J.M. Goodrich. As you can probably guess by the title, the stories all involve witches or some sort of witchcraft.

Out of the five tales, my favorite is The Summoning, which is a retelling of Bloody Mary, a legend that centers around a person looking at a mirror in the dark and repeating Bloody Mary three times. In this tale, a witch will come out of the mirror. I'm not going to give any spoilers but the author, Lindy S. Hudis, crafted a few twists that I quite enjoyed.

Dead Girls Don't Cry reminded be a bit too much of the horror movie The Craft. It's was an alright read but the "revenge" plot has been done to death.

Phoenix Rising centers around a young girl who dabbles into the world of witchcraft. While it seems harmless to her, the local villagers have a completely different opinion. The story starts off a little slow but it ended up being a good read.

Tabitha and Hidden Consequences were my least favorites. They're well-written but I just didn't care for the plots.

Overall, the Bitchcraft anthology should appeal to most supernatural and paranormal readers. Like most anthologies, some stories are better than others.

J. A. Cummings was born in Flint, Michigan and was raised in a nearby town called Clio. Appropriately enough for someone growing up in a place named for the Muse of history, she developed a passion for reading and the past that continues to this day. Her love of poetry and storytelling quickly followed.


S.B. Rhodes — I am a writer and editor. I have known that I wanted to be a writer since I was eight years old, and I am thrilled to be able to make that dream a reality. I am working on a novel, which I hope to publish sometime in the near future. I also write articles and do some freelancing. I mostly do ghostwriting, and I have recently begun to branch out and do more of my own work as well.


Lindy S. Hudis is a graduate of New York University, where she studied drama at Tisch School of the Arts. She also performed in a number of Off-Off Broadway theater productions while living in New York City.

She is the author of several titles, including her romance suspense novel, Weekends, her "Hollywood" story City of Toys, and her crime novel, Crashers. Her latest release, "L.A. Foxx: Hollywood Underworld" is the first installment of a crime, mystery series.

She is also the author of several erotic short stories, including "The S&M Club," "The Backstage Pass," "Guitar God," "The Guitarist," and "The Mile High Club."

She is also a former actress, having appeared in the television daytime drama "Sunset Beach," also "Married with Children," "Beverly Hills 90210" and the feature film "Indecent Proposal" . She and her husband, Hollywood stuntman Stephen Hudis, have formed their own production company called Impact Motion Pictures, and have several projects and screenplays in development.

Katie Jaarsveld was born in America. She had an imagination and though she was continually writing something, she was not published until later in life.

Having the support of family members as well as her husband, she finished stories she had written years earlier and brought them to life.

Being encouraged by fellow authors gave her the courage to chase her dreams and become one of the published.
