The ABCs of Spellcraft

Trouble in Taco Town

TTrouble in Taco Townhe ABCs of Spellcraft 2 by Jordan Castillo Price

Length: 25,000 words

See larger cover

Road trip!

When Dixon and Yuri head for Taco Town, they’re hoping to track down Uncle Fonzo. What they find instead is a fiasco. Is it sabotage? A curse? Or is it just a bunch of badly worded Spellcraft?

The small Minnesota berg is a tourist destination featuring a memorable roadside attraction: The Big Taco. It’s not actually edible, but there’s a flock of birds passing through that never got the memo.

One thing’s for sure, Fonzo has been there. Not only do plenty of folks recognize his photo, but they paid him to solve certain problems…all of which are now exponentially worse. Dixon wants to chalk it up to a run of bad luck. Yuri knows a con man when he sees one, and while he doesn’t relish the thought of destroying Dixon’s hero, he wouldn’t mind knocking the guy down a few pegs.

But there’s definitely something screwy about the Spellcraft they uncover. And they’d better figure out how to repair it before the Big Taco is reduced to crumbs—and with it, the livelihood of all their new friends.

The ABCs of Spellcraft is a series filled with bad jokes and good magic, where MM Romance meets Paranormal Cozy. A perky hero, a brooding love interest, and delightfully twisty-turny stories that never end up quite where you’d expect. The books are best read in order, so be sure to start at the beginning with Quill Me Now.

Victor Bayne has survived demons, ghosts and repeaters. But can he survive a murder house?

Few people would willingly spend the night in a murder house, but Victor Bayne is up for the challenge. He’ll do whatever it takes to get a look at his permanent record, including going undercover in a townhouse where a recent death took place. Why not? There was no foul play involved, and as a psychic medium, he’d know if a ghost was creeping up on him. The whole “murder house” claim is just a product of a kid’s overactive imagination, and he’s confident he has the situation under control.

Until he gets a load of the smell.

Turns out, undercover work is a lot tougher than it looks. Vic misses Jacob something fierce. The subject of his assignment is a real piece of work. His partner has definitely got something to hide…and then the investigation takes a truly bizarre turn.

What happens if the murder house reveals itself to be more than just a schoolyard rumor?

PsyCop is an ongoing series filled with supernatural action and delightfully awkward humor—with a steady undercurrent of gay romance. It’s best read in order, so if you’re new to the series, start with PsyCop #1, Among the Living…and prepare for a hauntingly good read.

Second Edition

Zero HourZero Hour by Jordan Castillo Price

Standalone Novel
Length: 82,000 words

In a world where life is disposable, two men fight to escape oppression and find the truth…together.

Ernest just turned thirty. It’s time for retirement, freedom from the tedious drudgery of his job as a data clerk. Time to emerge from his pod and explore parts of the city he’s never seen before—to meet some actual people. 

And at the end of the month? Time to die. 

Will, on the other hand, has met all kinds of people in his sales career. He runs the counter at the historic coffee shop, and when he talks, he sounds just like an old-time data feed. He’s striking, charismatic, and intriguingly risqué.

According to Will, it’s possible to live much longer than the Deacons have always claimed. Ernest wants to believe the heretical notion, but what if it’s all a big scam? He might be old enough to qualify for the senior discount, but being around Will leaves him feeling painfully naive…plus a few more intense emotions that are entirely new. 

Religion, medicine, government—every authority insists thirty is the end of the line, but now the seed of doubt has been planted. Can Ernest summon his inner strength and go against everything he’s been taught? He longs to flee the city with Will—but without the Deacons and their Reclaim machine, death will leave his soul trapped in a decaying body for eternity.

Zero Hour is a full length standalone novel. If you’re a fan of dystopian, post-apocalyptic MM romance, don’t miss this nail-biting tale of adventure, romance, perseverance and self-discovery.

This second edition was previously published in 2011 and contains minor text revisions.

Also in paperback!

New collection

Remember Tomorrow by Jordan Castillo Price

Three-novel Collection
Length: 165,000 words

When artificial memories are everywhere, how can you tell what’s real?

Daniel was a hotshot memorysmith, a major innovator in the field of recreational memories—until his father, Big Dan, suffered a freak persistent memory that sent their business into a tailspin. Now Daniel labors behind the scenes, seeking only to cure the persistent false memory and salvage their failing shop.

Elijah is the most talented mind in the memory industry, but because that mind is far from neurotypical, his potential is wasted teaching beginners at the mall. When his cobbled-together gear projects him into one of Daniel’s memory programs, a colorful but challenging relationship sparks to life.

The two men are an unlikely pair, but they have so much in common. Each is fiercely driven. Each is stunningly creative. And when Daniel and Elijah finally connect, each one realizes just how desperately he’s been searching for someone who truly understands him. 

Most of all, they’re utterly committed to curing the persistent false memory. Daniel finally gives up his workaholic smokescreen. Elijah fends off the advice of everyone he trusts and joins forces with Daniel. Even Big Dan says he’s on board with their plan…but will he remember tomorrow?

This collection contains the novels The Persistence of Memory, Forget Me Not, and Life is Awesome.

fundraiser tee Audio production can be expensive for an independent author. My audio projects take months, sometimes years, to even recoup their production costs.

Audiobooks are pricy to make. I have considered Patreon and decided it would take too much of my time away from my broader readership. Instead, I've come up with some alternative ways you can support the project.


Fundraiser T-shirts - Buy an Agent Bayne T-shirt or other merchandise. T-shirt sales funded nearly HALF the production cost of Skin After Skin. That's huge!

Tip Jar Tip Jar - The way audiobook distribution is currently structured, the author makes less per sale than the middlemen. Not all of my audios earn back their production costs. If you're loving the audios and receive hours of entertainment from them, consider dropping a few bucks in the tip jar. It will add up!

Monthly Donation - If you're so inclined, you can do this through the tip jar, too!

"It was an utter delight to work with Joel on this project. I felt like he totally "got" Mark from the beginning and it was so amazing to hear the story unfold just like it did in my head, that I had a book hangover from my own darn book after hearing the audio!" - Jordan





Mark Hansen thought working as artist’s assistant would be glamorous, especially if that artist was a vampire. Black tie events, witty repartee, gracing the pages of the local style section…. Didn’t happen. Not even once.

Jonathan Varga is an enigma. True, he’s quiet, generous, and scrupulously polite. But he has zero social life, refuses to be interviewed or photographed, and insists he can only consume feline blood.

Why supermarket blood won't suffice, Mark hasn’t asked. He’s rarely at a loss for words—he can dish an insult and follow it with a snap as quick as you can say “Miss Thang.” But one look at Jonathan’s black-as-sin gypsy eyes, and Mark’s objections drain away.

So he endures the perpetual grind of their routine: Jonathan hiding in his studio, swiping black paint onto black canvases. Mark hurling insults while he buffs the office to a shine with antiviral wipes. Each of them avoiding the other in a careful choreography…until a blurb in Art in America unleashes a chain of harrowing events neither of them could foresee.

As secrets from Jonathan’s past are brought to light, it becomes clear that all his precautions weren’t nearly enough.

I’m the last guy in the world who cares about sports, whether we’re talking about the Cubs, Sox, Bulls or Bears, or for that matter anything even remotely athletic. So I was a little surprised when Jacob suggested that we take a trip downtown to go ice skating. But nowhere near as surprised as he was when I told him I thought it was a great idea.

What Jacob didn’t know was that I’d played pee-wee hockey the winter I was eleven. (I didn’t give a rat’s ass about hockey. I had a crush on the goalie.) And what I didn’t know was that the ice rink would look so cool after sunset. All the bare trees along Michigan Avenue had been wrapped in white Christmas lights, and the whole Chicago skyline blazed behind them. Millennium Park was insanely cold, but it was gorgeous.

Jacob must have figured out that I could skate before we even got out on the ice. Not only is he smart that way, but I’m about as easy to read as a billboard. Even so, he still spent more time checking me out than he did enjoying the scenery. It’s weird, the way he stares. He doesn’t stop when I catch him at it. He just smiles a little.
