Modern Witchcraft Giveaway!


How did it get to be June???? I swear, this pandemic has completely messed up my sense of time.

Did you know I have a new book coming out on July 7th from St. Martin's Press? It's called Modern Witchcraft, and here's the official blurb:

Deborah Blake’s Modern Witchcraft is a guidebook to witchcraft as a female-empowering religion, including detailed instructions on how to practice self-care in today’s society through goddess worship and magic.
In a time when most formal religions are on the wane, Wicca is said to be the fastest growing religion in North America. What is it that draws people to Witchcraft, and how does a spiritual path with its roots in ancient beliefs and traditions transform itself into a practice that resonates so deeply with today’s modern woman?
There are a number of explanations for the phenomenon, such as Witchcraft’s connection to the natural world, or acceptance of members regardless of lifestyle choices. For women, however, the greatest appeal may be the worship of a goddess (or goddesses). No stern patriarchal God here. Instead, Wicca and most other forms of modern Witchcraft embrace deity in both the feminine and the masculine. Suddenly, women can look at the divine and see themselves reflected back. In addition, many women are frustrated, frightened, triggered, and down-right furious with the current social and political environment, but feel powerless to create positive change. Witchcraft can give them a sense of personal empowerment.
There are many different Witchcraft paths and a multitude of approaches to its practice. This book will guide the reader on the journey to connecting with the feminine divine both without and within, and open the door to this magical religion that will enlighten, uplift, and energize their lives.
This is my first mainstream Witchcraft book, and I hope everyone likes it. I've got a few ARCs (advanced reader copies) and I'll be giving them away over the next few weeks. I'll probably do a giveaway on Facebook too, so look out for that. In the meanwhile, here's today's giveaway of a signed ARC and a few goodies...

Some buy links in case you want to preorder a copy. (Publishers love preorders.)

  15. Who am I drawn to? My main three are The Morrighan, Brigid and Hekate, although lately Freya has been on my mind.

  16. Hmm, that's so hard! Auset has helped me through some of my toughest moments. Freya has been with me since I began my Pagan journey as well as Bast. Cerridwen and Brigid have been around me for years, off and on. Such a tough question! :)
