Lock Down Cheer Up Signed Book Giveaway


Here in New York State, as in much of the rest of the country, almost all of us are being asked to stay at home and away from other people as much as possible.

Friday afternoon I shut down my store, The Artisans' Guild, and I'm now hunkering down at home with Alicia my cat sitter, who had come up to take care of the cats while I was away on two trips--both now cancelled. She's here for the duration, and while it is a little strange to have someone in the house besides the cats, it is nice to have the company.

We have plenty of supplies, and I have lots of writing to do, but it is still...challenging, to say the least. Everyone I know is feeling kind of blue, so I thought I'd do a book giveaway, just for the heck of it. A shut down cheer up, as it were.

I'm going to give away the winner's choice of a signed copy of my new humorous paranormal romance, KING ME! or a signed ARC of my upcoming St. Martin's Press nonfiction release MODERN WITCHCRAFT, which will be out in July. As usual, all you have to do is fill in the Rafflecopter form below. If you'd like to spread the word, that would be great.


Hang in there, everyone!

  3. I'm trying to find a new normal with elements of my old routine that I enjoyed. I'm doing my best to meditate, get some exercise, and stay connected with friends and family through social media/texting/actually talking on the phone.

    1. I'm making an effort to keep in touch with other people too. I think making a connection, even distantly, helps a lot.

  5. This is so nice of you. Thank you for the giveaway. Enjoy your time at home. I am doing the same things I do when not in lockdown: reading, knitting, computer games. But now I'm doing it with my bf at home (and the tv on) 24/7. Gritting teeth.

    1. Yep. Lots of teeth gritting here too, although I find I have to keep the TV off most of the time so my head doesn't explode.

  8. Illinois just went on lockdown and all of my books are packed because I'm listing my house for sale as soon as we get the all clear.

  9. Given sensitivities to perfumed products, cleaning agents, permanent markers, seasons allergies, this shut down isn’t that much different from my usual life. We’re not on lockdown quite but daughter & son-in-law are off work for two weeks. Schools are closed as well. So there is furniture to rearrange, embroidery, home schooling, listening to son-in-law whinging on about how bored he is.....

  11. Thank you for generosity and Fun now. I'm enjoying the free Met Opera HD Broadcasts each night. I've wondered about getting a subscription, so it's like a binge test drive. And the Berlin Philharmonic concerts streaming app is GLORIOUS. The cats are all thrilled with the No Leaving the House game.

  13. I am reading more, and connecting with online friends and colleagues. The quiet and requirement to slow down has actually been more self-care than I realized I needed. I also visited Patreon and left comment there.

    1. I'm finding that too. I wouldn't have chosen this way to go about it, but I definitely needed a break.

  20. I have been doing a lot of reading, and revisiting my witchy bookshelf and re-reading some older favorites, which include several Deborah Blake books, Witchcraft on a Shoestring, Everyday Witchcraft, and The Goddess is in The Details (one of my very first Wicca books BTW). Actually just enjoying the serenity of being home with my family.

  23. Hi Deborah. I just wanted to ask you a question about the Everyday Witch Oracle deck. I love your Everyday Witch tarot and I do love the oracle as well, but I am a little confused as to why the descriptions of the oracle online, as well as on the box mention that the guidebook is full-colour when it's not? I have to say I'm not a big fan of the way that guidebook was printed - from the fact that it feels crammed, without proper separations between cards, to the fact that it has absolutely no pictures.

    1. Hi Tindy,
      I don't know the answer to the question of why the guidebook is described as full color when it isn't. Honestly, someone at Llewellyn made a mistake. That's all I can say. I'm sorry you don't like the guidebook. They can only be a certain size in order to fit into the box, which may be why things feel crammed.
