Back to Top - Author Interview - March 2015

by Llewellyn

1. Your new book, Everyday Witchcraft, focuses on bringing spirituality back into our busy, daily lives. What inspired you to write this book?

Deborah Blake

I wrote the first book on this topic, The Goddess Is in the Details, back in 2009, and it has been far and away the most popular of all my books, which made me think it was the one people resonated with the most. And my life has only gotten busier, so it occurred to me that my readers might enjoy more ways to connect with spirit in small, practical ways.

2. You are a prolific writer, and many of your books (such as Everyday Witch A to Z and Witchcraft on a Shoestring) focus on being a Witch in a mundane, everyday world. From where do you draw your ideas?

From being a Witch in a mundane, everyday world, of course! But seriously, most of my books are drawn from my own experiences, or those of my group, Blue Moon Circle. I also get questions and requests from my readers, which might prompt a book (like the Everyday Witch A to Z Spellbook, which I wrote after I got so many requests for simple, practical spells for everyday issues).

3. Why is important for us to continuously be renewing our spirituality as we go through our daily lives?

Life can be exhausting, and we tend to put out more than we take back in, which drains our mental, physical, and emotional batteries. Renewing our spirituality actually feeds those batteries, allowing us to keep moving forward with more energy and an open heart.

4. Practices in the book include five-minute rituals, "hibernation vacations," mini daily divinations, and more. How can such small practices reap such positive benefits?

Small things add up. It only takes a minute to hug someone, and think of how good that makes you feel! (And it only takes a couple of minutes to eat some chocolate. I rest my case.) There have been a lot of studies that show that small bursts of exercise are as effective as one long session—why should spiritual practices be any different? And let's face it, if the choice is between doing a few small things that you can find the time for, or doing nothing…well, obviously the small things count. Now go eat some chocolate and hug somebody.

Kerry Nelson Selman, author of the new Crystal Resonance, provides five reasons why these combinations can be so powerful in helping us live our lives well.

Demons, Fairies, and Saints in a Renaissance Manuscript of Magic
by Daniel Harms

Demons, fairies, and saints—together? These are not three categories we think of together. In past eras, however, perceptions of the supernatural world were much more fluid; magicians of the Renaissance would not be averse to calling upon whatever beings were available to help. Daniel Harms, one of the editors of The Book of Oberon, details this working manual of a magician from the time of Queen Elizabeth, William Shakespeare, and John Dee. The original is in the Folger Shakespeare Library, and it could be the largest collection of ritual magic texts ever published in English—including calling upon demons, fairies, and saints for help.
