A downloadable short story

A story about visiting your sister's new store right before going off on a journey that promises to change your life. Did I mention your sister's a witch?

Hey hi hello! You’re about to read the first short story that acts as a companion piece to the Substitute Familiar light novel series. Specifically, the first book! You don’t need to have read it to enjoy A Drink To Amanda, but it’ll make the experience much better (and save you from a couple of minor spoilers). I recommend catching up on SubFami before reading any further! (That said, you’re the boss!)

Please enjoy, and let’s keep making wonderful things together.

This is a short light novel of 23 pages with 1 cover & 3 interior black & white illustrations.

I'm no longer selling this by itself because it's now included in Substitute Familiar Stories, a 1.5 companion book to Substitute Familiar! Please head over to that book's page to get not only this story, but four times as much illustrated tales of queer witches!

As absolutely marvelous as ever!!
I highly recommend rereading the first half once you're done with your first complete read. A lot of clever foreshadowing in there.
