Finally! It’s the ‘official’ release day for my new urban fantasy, Cupcakes, Trinkets & Other Deadly Magic. YAY!!

Synopsis: If you’d asked me a week ago, I would have told you that the best cupcakes were dark chocolate with chocolate cream cheese icing, that dancing in a crowd of magic wielders — the Adept — was better than sex, and that my life was peaceful and uneventful. Just the way I liked it. That’s what twenty-three years in the magical backwater of Vancouver will get you — a completely skewed sense of reality. Because when the dead werewolves started showing up, it all unraveled … except for the cupcake part. That’s a universal truth.


And what are the early reviewers saying?

“Witches, werewolves and vampires…oh my! Cupcakes, Trinkets, and Other Deadly Magic is a fun-filled trip into a world where bad magic can get a good witch down and power isn’t always accessed through hard work and determination … sometimes it’s stolen.” – Headshot Heather from

“This was a fun, action filled urban fantasy that will also have you running to bake cupcakes! … and I loved the unpredictability of not knowing what would happen next.” – Sarah from Sarah Elizabeth’s Bookshelf

“The mystery and suspense build up to a riveting and mind-blowing conclusion that shows Doidge as the brilliant riddler that she is. A definite five star even without the mouth-watering cupcake teasers. More please!” – Cindi Clubbs from Mommasez…blog, on Amazon)

“Complete with witches, werewolves, vampires, and necromancers, this novel will keep readers laughing and turning the pages as Jade tries to figure out the truth behind the deaths surrounding her—the deaths that all point to her. ” – 4 stars, Shana from A Book Vacation

Cupcakes (Etc) is my fourth novel, and I’m pretty excited about it!! To celebrate I baked, of course. Because I was in a pink sort of mood – for the first time in my life, actually – I chose Love in a Cup, a dark chocolate cake with strawberry buttercream frosting.

    This was so good! I wish I could read book #2 right now. This is going to be one of those series where people wish they’d waited for the whole series to come out before reading.

    To celebrate, here is my latest dark chocolate obsession: earl grey dark chocolate. Something about the strong fragrance of the bergamot-scented black tea makes it a robust pairing against the deep, dark roast of dark chocolate. In these earl grey dark chocolate cupcakes, I infused a combination of cream and condensed milk (for some extra sweetness) with earl grey and used it for a whipped ganache frosting that’s a bit firm but melts into your mouth as you eat it, just as chocolate should. Topped with a dash of seasalt to enhance the flavors within, these cupcakes are a richly indulgent shot of chocolate. You know, to tie you over until sated is released!
