BIG NEWS!

Hey all!

Just a quick note to let you all know that I just signed a contract with Llewellyn for BOOK #7! Huzzah!!!!!

Thanks to my lovely editor Elysia Gallo (who suggested the idea) and my lovely agent Elaine Spencer (who takes care of all that tricky paperwork so I don't have to), I will soon be hard at work on:

A Broom for Every Witch: The Legends, Lore, and Craft of Broomstick Magic
(Keep in mind, this is just a tentative title, and may change before the book comes out.)
The book will probably be coming in some time in Winter of 2014

Of course, I would usually do some sort of big giveaway to celebrate the news...but er...I'm already doing one :-)

So here's a little something special to add on top of that one!

I will give away a copy of the new Everyday Witch Book of Rituals book to someone who does the following:

1) Buys the book and/or tells me they've already bought it and/or emails me a picture of themselves with the book (this can be in a bookstore, if you don't want to purchase the book). Send the pictures to me at magicmysticminerva at yahoo (I will probably put them up here, so let me know if you don't want your picture up, or send me one of your cat with the book instead--lol)

OR

2) Signs up for the upcoming Celebrating Samhain and Ritual Basics Class or tells me they've already done so.

OR

3) Puts up a review of the most recent book or any of my other books (nonfiction or fiction) at Amazon, B&N or Goodreads

4) Follows this blog, if you don't already

Note that it is not required that you purchase anything to take part in this giveaway.

And don't forget to comment here to tell me about 1, 2, 3,or 4 so I'll be sure to enter you! This giveaway is only good until Sunday at 6 PM, when the registration for the class closes. I'll announce the winner then. 

YAY! BOOK # 7!!!!!!!

  6. YYYYAAAAYYYY!!!! Book #7!
    My library is growing. I have all of them including the latest Rituals book and the Witch’s Dozen ebook. I posted a review of the ebook on Amazon (as catwoman, of course!).
    Great news. Keep us posted!!!

  7. Congrats, Deb! What a very cool book it will be, too. I've never run into any broomstick magic books in my wanders, but I haven't wandered into a pagan bookstore in a little bit. Even if there are others, yours will be unique. Congrats, congrats, congrats!

    1. Well, Magic the Cat is pouting a little because she doesn't get to co-author this book the way she did the Everyday Witch ones...otherwise, they're all pretty happy.

      More books = more cat treats :-)

  9. To add to all the others - congratulations! Lucky seven and all that;)
    I'm trying to decide whether to put together a proposal for my 3rd non-fiction or not. I really want to spend more time writing fiction,trouble is, my non-fiction sells and I have yet to place a novel :(
    Decisions, decisions.
    BTW, I really love your jewellery - I have my eye on a piece my best friend (a witch) would love. She has a birthday coming up....

    1. Deborah,

      I wrestled with the same conundrum. After all, I could sell a novel tomorrow (literally, since there is one out on submission). But in the meanwhile, I still love the nonfiction, and my editor at Llewellyn, and especially my fans...so here we are, with number 7. Good luck with yours!

      And jewelry DOES make a lovely gift :-) There is one particularly witchy piece up on my Etsy site right now...if it doesn't sell, I might keep it for myself!

  11. Soo happy for you, Miss Deborah. You know I've got your back when it comes to promo. Will hit the blog with it today.

    I already have Rituals hehe so I'd love to have the Amazon GC or something you've hand-crafted.

  12. Hi Deborah,

    Congratulations! Woo Hoo! You know I'll be picking the new book up I have several of your books now (including the Ritual book) and am really loving the Spell book. Also, I signed up for your blog.
