Halloween-Themed Giveaway!


We're at three weeks to release day for Veiled Magic, so it must be time for another giveaway! Big congrats to Diane P. of Canada, who won the last one. And be sure to check back next week, because IT'S GOING TO BE EPIC. Just sayin'.

This week's giveaway has a Halloween theme, as befits the season. Whether you celebrate it as Halloween or Samhain, you'll probably like this week's goodies. I have to admit, I had a LOT of fun putting together this prize pack.


The winner gets his or her choice of The Witch's Broom (Llewellyn nonfiction) or Wickedly Dangerous plus a cool "You say wicked like it's a bad thing" magnet, a witch ornament, a broom pen, some small twisted black beeswax candle (for magic or everyday use), a magical black cat magnet, plus some misc. swag. And also, this little guy!


To enter, just use the Rafflecopter form below. As always, you can do one or all of the options, but to get credit for a review it either has to be a new one (you can always review a different book of mine) or posted in a new place (if you put a review up at Amazon, you can put it on B&N or Goodreads, for instance). The Tweet about the Giveaway option can be done every day. No purchase necessary and the giveaway is open to everyone, everywhere.

So tell me, how do you celebrate Halloween or Samhain? Is it a religious or spiritual holiday for you, as it is for me, or just a fun day? (Nothing wrong with that!) Are you dressing up? Do you carve a cool pumpkin? Inquiring minds (and our tiny friend above) want to know.

  2. I'll do a little private meditation, then, weather allowing, a fire in the Secret Garden to honor the ancestors and those passed. If the weather is crappy...it's a candle inside. ;) Thanks for all that you do!

  10. Every year since I was a little girl my family has had the same tradition. I now share that with my children and grandchildren. There is trick or treating, the lighting of the great pumpkins. We always have dinner which consists of Witch's Brew Stew and Mexican cornbread, roasted pumpkin seeds. We always remember the ones who have passed.

  11. Cute giveaway, love it

    I celebrate Halloween all month long- we have events every weekend. Zombie Walk, Witches Ball, Zombie Prom...by Halloween we are worn out. We take the kids trick or treating, grab pizza to go, then come home and watch Hocus Pocus while sorting through the candy loot. :-)

  12. We trick or treat, since we have a young one, and then we come home, drink something warm and go through candy while we watch something Halloween-y. Once the little one is in bed, then I usually do some scrying or tarot practice. It is usually pretty low key outside of trick or treating, since that takes so much out of us.
