Everyone seems to like the books, it is just a numbers game. (So tell all your friends.)
I think I mentioned in the acknowledgments that all of my cats come from rescues. Three of them come from one specific local independent rescue organization called the Super Heroes. I did some volunteer work for them back before the pandemic, which is what gave me the idea to base a series on a struggling shelter.(less)

Book of Shadows Celebration Giveaway

 

I was thrilled to find out this week that my most recent book from Llewellyn, The Eclectic Witch's Book of Shadows, won the COVR award for best book illustration. This is an award given out at a trade convention for Pagan and New Age books and gifts.

   

The only person more thrilled than me was illustrator  Mickie Mueller (who is also an author in her own right). So we decided to get together

“When you tell the children tales of the Baba Yaga on a cold winter’s night, you might remember to mention that whether or not the witch is wicked often depends on who is telling the story.”
Deborah Blake, Wickedly Magical

“Holy crap!” he said. “That’s a big dog.” “Yes,” said Baba. “But a small dragon.”
Deborah Blake, Wickedly Dangerous

“Who says wicked can’t be good ?”

“Who says wicked can’t be good ?”
Deborah Blake, Wickedly Magical

“When you tell the children tales of the Baba Yaga on a cold winter’s night, you might remember to mention that whether or not the witch is wicked often depends on who is telling the story.”
Deborah Blake, Wickedly Magical

“On the day the tree bloomed in the fall, when its white apple blossoms fell and covered the ground like snow, it was tradition for the Waverleys to gather in the garden like survivors of some great catastrophe, hugging one another, laughing as they touched faces and arms, making sure they were all okay, grateful to have gotten through it.”
Sarah Addison Allen, First Frost

“Not that anyone short of God Almighty could have gotten Marcus Senior to rest and take it easy. It was like trying to make a shark sit up and beg for treats.”
Deborah Blake, Wickedly Wonderful

“Most books on witchcraft will tell you that witches work naked. This is because most books on witchcraft were written by men.”
Neil Gaiman
