WOO! Back to the grind!
(See what I did there? Ha, witch puns…)
I’m finally back to writing, and I’m spending today working on the manuscript. I’ve got a handful of oil formulae to concoct, several powder descriptions and suggested uses to write, and big swaths of the introduction to finish. It sounds like a lot, but really, it’s very manageable. The manuscript is probably about 85% finished at this point. Plus, my girl Lauren Goodnight ( @thelulusoldier ) is writing the foreword, and I’ve already got the cover art finished.
My goal is to have the manuscript completely finished and ready for editing by the end of July, so I can do a few weekends’ worth of editing and hopefully have everything ready to go in short order. The tentative release date right now is August 16th, but don’t hold me to that just yet.
Further updates as events warrant! 🙂
By the by, if anyone has any pagan festivals coming up, I do offer my books to faire vendors at 60% of MSRP with low-rate shipping anywhere in the U.S. or Canada.
If you or someone you know might be interested, please contact me via email at Bree NicGarran@outlook.com. I need to make at least three more direct sales in order to keep the lights on this month.
Thank you for your support!
The Sisters Grimmoire: Spells and Charms for Your Happily Ever After (2nd Edition)
By Bree NicGarran
Mirror, Mirror, on the wall,
Who’s the cleverest witch of them all?
With the spells in this book, it just might be you!
Inspired by the well-known works of The Brothers Grimm, this volume boasts over sixty original spells lovingly crafted from favorite fairy tales, along with helpful spellcrafting instructions and several indices to aid you in your journey. All of this is wrapped up with useful chapter forewords discussing the various themes within the tales, some insight into the creative process, and a bit of discussion on ethics and the usage of magic.
Whether you’re ready to yell “All Heads Off But Mine,” looking to turn your luck around with some Buried Coins, or just wanting to show the world What Big Teeth you have, there is sure to be a spell within these pages that is exactly what you’ve been looking for.
After all, who couldn’t use a bit of Happily Ever After?
Good news, everyone!
The Kindle version of The Sisters Grimmoire 2nd Edition is currently in review! I expect to see the listing go live tonight or tomorrow, and I will certainly post links on all my social media.
The print version is not far behind, with just a few technical fixes left until the formal review (I’ve sent it for a prelim just to see), and things are well on track to have both listings up by this weekend.
Pestlework: A Book of Magical Powders and Oils
From the author of Grovedaughter Witchery comes a volume of potions and powders for all occasions, suitable to enhance the craft of any practitioner.
Old standards like banishing powder and blessing oil meet new classics like Dream Dust and Stargazer Wishing Oil. Need to rid your house of a troublesome spirit? Try a sprinkle of Ghost-Be-Gone Powder. Looking for a way to get your zest back after spellwork? Brim With Vim Vitality Oil might be just the thing. Over 150 formulae await you within these pages, along with helpful hints, safety tips, and detailed instructions for creating your own magical powders and oils.
Collected for the first time in a single volume, these recipes are the product of twelve years of experience and much experimentation. While magic is never a guarantor of success, the potions within these pages might just give your spells the edge you need.
Coming August 2017!
I have dropped off more signed copies of Grovedaughter Witchery at Mystic Moon in Norfolk. There should be 16 copies available for purchase.
I also dropped off eight signed copies of The Witches’ Cupboard, and they are available for purchase as well.
If you haven’t picked up a copy of either book, now is a really good time to get down to Mystic Moon to get an autographed copy! Remember to call ahead and make sure the books are available, as they are expected to sell quickly with the upcoming Beltane holiday.
Happy Shopping! 🙂
