The first semi-sequel to Substitute Familiar is here!

  • Visiting your sister's new store right before going off on a journey promises to change your life. Did I mention your sister's a witch?
  • The council of witches doesn't often get involved... but considering what a certain alchemist has done, it might be time for magical justice to be administered
  • ...and 23 other stories about witches, familiars, and everyone in-between!

Hey hi hello! You’re about to read a collection of short stories that act as a sequel-prequel-companion 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, Penelope And The Council, or the 23 other stories in this light novel, but it’ll make the experience much better (and save you from a bunch of spoilers). I recommend catching up on SubFami #1 before reading any further! (That said, you’re the boss!)

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

This is a light novel of 97 pages with 3 color cover images & 18 interior black & white illustrations.

Heads up: this light novel includes A Drink To Amanda and Penelope And The Council in their entirety, along with over 30 pages of never-before-seen content!

what is with the painfully long titles omg


Esmeralda is such a noodle incident she's not quite literally made of noodles and it might be my low-key fav thing.


pwease make something freeeeeee ive seen these books and wanted too buy dem but i cant :(


This was another great read. Thank you so much for making it!

Do you think Penelope could come up with a boy potion in a future edition? That would be a really neat addition to her inventory. <3


Oh she for sure already has! ^^ It wouldn't make sense to only carry one kind of those.

Absolutely lovely! Enjoyed this from start to finish. And the epilogue story was a very nice touch

Been following Alex's works since the Cat Wishes book. I'm always excited for her books and I am never disappointed. They are very positive, uplifting stories which reveal more information each time you reread them. Gender feels, wholesome love and friendship, and compassionate understanding can all be found here.

<3 a very comfortable story universe

Eeeek, I'm so excited!!
