Spells, Salt, & Steel

A New Templar Knights Novella Series

Loosely connected to John G. Hartness’s Bubba the Monster Hunter series. Spells, Salt, & Steel is a new series of short novels, similar to BookShots.

They are the first line of defense against the things that go bump in the night.

They are the keepers of a centuries-old legacy of The Church defending the world against the forces of darkness.

They are a bunch of highly armed rednecks, internet video celebrities, soccer moms, and assorted broken nutjobs.

They are the new Templars, and things are about to get weird.
