Book Description

15 Mar 2012 Witching Pen Novellas
It's hard being the most powerful witch on the planet. It's even harder when you're a twenty-five year old virgin who'll lose all of that power the moment you sleep with someone ... that's why Elena's never slept with her best friend and flatmate, Karl, despite the true feelings they harbour for each other. Elena's about to discover that there are even more difficult things in life to deal with. One of them comes in the form of a pen she discovers one day, a pen that allows anything she writes to come to pass... Suddenly, it's not just her powers or her heart that's at stake, but her very soul, as a dream demon with a seductive pull uses the pen to try and turn her away from her reality, and from Karl. But the pen is just the beginning. Everything Elena has believed in is a lie, and her world is about to fall apart... (Includes the bonus short story, Wilted.)

More About the Author

UK author of The Witching Pen and the international bestselling Eye Of The Storm series.

Dianna combines a titillating mix of paranormal romance, urban and dark fantasy into her writing, to bring you stories that are action-packed, fast-paced and not short of heat, with the focus on both character development and the plot. She writes full-length novels and short fiction. She has also written poetry (first published in 1997) and esoteric books and articles. Nowadays, she chooses to concentrate on writing fiction.

Although quite active online, Dianna prefers the quiet company of nature and animals to the hustle and bustle of people. She loves anything paranormal (she doesn't really consider it "para"), organic food, walking barefoot, the smell of the woods after rain, and summer days.

However, she is also sustained by coffee, chocolate and the occasional vodka.

She currently lives in Surrey, England with her partner and their daughter, where she devotes her time to parenting, publishing and writing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magic! I Loved It! 25 July 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Review 6******

This is a novella, so it is a relatively short story. However, this does not mean that it's lacking in danger, romance and magic! In fact, it is full of all three elements, plus a bit more! I loved it!

Elena is a wonderful character. She is warm and loving. However, because of a curse, she cannot have a relationship with her best friend Karl.

Karl is the boy next door. Elena and Karl have been friends for a long time, and have grown up together. However, one night will change their lives forever.

Elena is a thirteenth generation witch, which makes her the most powerful witch on the planet. She is afraid of using her full power, so she holds back. She finds a pen one day, and then finds her nightmare has just begun.
Secrets are revealed for both Elena and Karl in this stunning book written by Dianna Hardy.

I love Dianna's style of writing, as it kept me glued to the pages! The story flowed seamlessly, and the ending left me wanting more! There is a scene that is explicit in nature, so I do not recommend this book for younger readers. However, if you are looking for a fantastic romance story filled with magic, demons, angels and adventure, then I highly recommend this one! I am now reading the next book in the series, The Sands of Time, and I'm thoroughly loving that one too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing start to the series 11 Sep 2013
By L. E.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Like its short prequel, The Witching Pen pulls you right into the characters world. You get enough detail about Elena and Karl, their lives and relationship simply by the way they are with one another. The concept is fab. The pen itself seems like a really fun item to have, and yet dangerous, which is what makes it so appealing and interesting to read about.

There are equal amounts of heartfelt moments, and humour, which made the characters and the situations they were in more realistic. Karl and Elena are a very sweet and compassionate pair and because of everything they have gone through to the point that the start of the book, they are very likeable and you find yourself very happy for them despite all the new problems they have to deal with toward and by the end of the book.

The story - as with those that follow - is very down to earth in the sense that it is believable. I feel as though I like could actually run into these characters if I were to take a trip down to London, which I liked, because it's not very often you find that you feel so connected to a story or its characters.
The Witching Pen is an intriguing beginning to the series, with a tease worthy cliff hanger that has you itching to read the next book as soon as you're finished.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Witching Pen 9 Sep 2013
By Merissa
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the full length story of Elena and Karl and it starts when Karl is 27. For a long time, Elena and Karl have kept their relationship purely platonic due to circumstances "beyond their control" but things are about to change.

This story is full of action, romance, drama and suspense. You find out little snippets as you read along and the characters are built up. There is no insta-love in this book, just a deep and true friendship that could always have been something more if things had been different.

Absolutely brilliant and an ending which definitely makes you reach for the next book in the series!

4.0 out of 5 stars another winning set of books 4 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
after finishing the Eye of the storm books by this author i immediately downloaded this set of novellas, even though the books are short the books are full of interesting and individual characters all with their own personalities and so different to other books of this theme, i didnt expect it to be as good as the previous books dont know why probably because they were so good but even though this series started of slowly after just finishing the second book The Sands of Time i am smitten, i love this author she has an individual style that keeps you wondering if you read the next bit or are you a bit too scared of what will happen, amazing so now going to read the third one The Demon Bride, give these books a try they are realy priced too low for the enjoyment they give, 4 stars here as the story started of slowly but 5 stars for The Sands of Time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful 31 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I discovered this book from a writing group I am in. I am quickly becoming a Dianna Hardy fan. She writes very well and immediately draws you into the story. You feel like you are right there among the characters and traveling along with them.
When this book ended I could hardly wait for the next book as I wanted to know who, what, where and why.
Chocked full of witchcraft, good and evil, love and hate this book will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end. Worth a read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great witchy adult paranormal read 24 Oct 2012
Elena is a thirteenth generation witch, in other words, she is pretty dang powerful. Not only is she powerful on her own, but she comes across this pen that has powers of its own(I will let you find out about that on your own). Unfortunately, with great power also comes with great responsibilities and boundaries. She has been told things by her mother that she has to keep in mind. If she does certain things, it will have consistences, and in this case, that pretty much means that she is never to have a love life. Once Elena finds what she thinks is her true love, she is willing to take the risk. What she has been told doesn't seem too bad, and is pretty much worth giving up in exchange for spending the rest of her life with the one she loves. That is when she finds out that most of the things she has been told were lies and hell on Earth breaks loose.

This book has a little bit of everything: suspense, romance, witches, demons, angels, and a great storyline with amazing characters. I can't wait to read the rest of the series. A must read withcy adult paranormal romance.
