    Young Lettie can see things through her magic eye -  things that might be better if she not see. Grownup's secrets. Grownup's  true intentions. But when she learns of her brother's unjust arrest and  sham trial, it's her seeing eye - and some conjure magic from her Mama -  that may help change the fate of her big brother.

My new favorite podcast

Nightlight is an all-around amazing podcast. They consistently produce high-quality episodes that provide an engrossing, atmospheric experience. They cover all kinds of stories so if you like horror, want to support Black writers, and get excellent book and movie recommendations, there’s something for you. And I enjoy hearing the author interviews as much as I love the stories themselves - incorporating writers’ voices into the episodes is a brilliant move and one that I greatly appreciate. Plus, it’s so refreshing and exciting to hear Black horror/supernatural fiction as the norm and not the exception. I can’t speak highly enough about this podcast and the team behind it, or express fully what it means to me.

Terrific New Horror Podcast

I was looking for a new short story horror anthology podcast and Nightlight popped up as a suggestion. I decided to give it a try and am very happy with this find. The stories, the productions, and the interviews are all excellent. I highly recommend.

Fantastic Podcast

I love this podcast and have been listening to it every night. I only wish Tonia Thompson spoke just a tiny bit slower so I can absorb every word and picture the story in my head as she speaks. I tried going to half speed on the settings, but then it is way to slow.
