Penelope is a witch, part of a secret society protecting humans from demon attacks. But when she was a child, a demon killed her parents—and stole her magic. Since then, she’s been pretending to be something she’s not, using her sister’s magic to hide her own loss, to prevent being sent away.When she’s finally given the chance to join the elite demon-hunting force, Penelope thinks that will finally change. With her sister’s help, she can squeeze through the tests and get access to the information she needs to find “her” demon. To take back what was stolen.Then she meets Carter. He’s cute, smart, and she can borrow his magic, too. He knows her secret—but he also has one of his own.Suddenly, Penelope’s impossible quest becomes far more complicated. Because Carter’s not telling her everything, and it’s starting to seem like the demons have their own agenda…and they’re far too interested in her.

Exclusive Excerpt!
 “Jealousy is cute on you, Pen.”
 
“Don’t call me that,” I snap, pushing my coffee away from me. “And I’m not jealous.”
 
He leans back on the chair. “Sure. And I don’t think you’re adorable.” I jerk my eyes up. He’s smiling. Screw this—this is so frustrating. I tap my foot under the table.
 
"We’re stating the facts, right?" he says.
 
“Right,” I say.
 
I don’t have time for this. And what is wrong with this coffee? I feel like I swallowed a fire and it’s all just burning at my stomach.
 
“You look sick again,” he says.
 
The poorly—or perfectly—timed waitress comes back with Carter’s coffee and a whole tray of drinks. Carter, obviously, flirts again. I don’t know if he’s doing it to get a reaction out of me, but I’m not going to give him one. I watch him and say nothing, but the whole time it feels darker inside my head and my stomach whirs. It’s more empty, and more full, and unsettled at once. The waitress turns to leave a when it happens.
 
The waitress coughs, as if she suddenly can’t breathe, and trips. She flies across the air. The tray spills all over a table of four. I gasp, horrified. Another waitress grabs her by the waist, trying to give her the Heimlich. The waitress coughs out the gum. She’s crying hysterically, apologizing to the customers dripping with water.
 
The weirdest part? As soon it happens, all the fury that was building up inside of me disappears. It’s calm again, normal. The change is so sudden that my fingernails dig into the table. All I can hear is the waitress’s cry. 
 
"I don’t know what happened," she sobs over and over again. I close my eyes. Everything inside me is completely still. No storm, no clawing, no emptiness or fullness. In fact, I’m suddenly starving.

Carter’s looking at me when I open my eyes. There’s something unsettling in his gaze, something suspicious.
 
“I gotta go,” I say. He starts to say something. I don’t stay long enough to find out what it is.

Somehow I just did magic.

SALT shakers! Be part of my street team!

I’m building a team — and you could be on it!

If you don’t know (or if you do) my debut novel SALT comes out January 7! And I thought it would be fun to build a street team. Since SALT is digital only, I have a bunch of cool things planned to promote online and offline. 

If you sign up for my street team, then you can get information before everyone else does, win prizes, and EVEN MORE FUN STUFF. I can’t really say what’s going to happen, but just know it will be awesome. 

Maybe I’ll even bake you cookies.

You can join right now — I only have 30 spots! So jump on it and be one of the first people to join, and I have a top secret treat waiting for you now. (like, for real secret.)

What’s SALT about? 

A powerless witch, some demons, some salt, some snark, lots of magic, kissing and a hot boy. If you like Supernatural then you’ll probably like my book. Although, my book is more funny than broody. You’ll still like it. 

Join it on facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/saltshakersteam/

Don’t have facebook? Then you can join it via email! Just send me an email at danielle(at)danielleellison(dot)com.

I’ll be hanging out twitter forever under #saltshaker and waiting to announce that someone has joined my street team. Add me (@DanielleEWrites) and let’s have a party!
