Wicca Practical Magic will be released on May 23, 2017, through Althea Press/Callisto Media, and you’re going to LOVE it! Here’s what some of the advance reviewers have to say:

"Patti Wigington has given us a rare sort of book. Wicca Practical Magic is treasure trove for the new practitioner while at the same time being a lovely refresher course for old-timers. This book is an important addition to your Pagan library."
—Byron Ballard, author of Staubs and Ditchwater: a Friendly and Useful Introduction to Hillfolks' Hoodoo and Asfidity and Mad-Stones: A Further Ramble Through Hillfolks' HoodooWicca Practical Magic is more than just a reference book. Written in Patti's easy, accessible style (I'm a big fan of her About.com articles!) it covers all the essentials of incorporating Craftiness into everyday life―everything from sabbats and spell work to stocking your magical cupboards.”
―Natalie Zaman, Wandering Witch and author of Magical Destinations of the Northeast and Color and Conjure: Magic Spells and Rituals to Color

“Patti Wigington’s wisdom has been a long-time staple online, and I couldn’t be happier to finally have a chunk of it in one place on my shelves. Wicca Practical Magic is a fantastic collection of knowledge for the modern witch.”
―Deborah Blake, author of Everyday Witchcraft: Making Time for Spirit in a Too-Busy WorldWicca Practical Magic covers a wide range of topics without losing the pragmatic voice that Patti has cultivated. The appendix and resources contain a treasure trove of additional reading. Not only will I be advocating this book to my beginning students, but to every witch. Such constructive books come along rarely. It is a gem for any library.”
―Amy Blackthorn, author of Encyclopedia of Magical Aromatherapy

Book Announcement! Wicca Practical Magic Coming May 23!

OMG YOU GUYYYYYYYS.

So I mentioned a while back that I had a Sooper Sekret Project in the works, and now I can officially announce it! My new book, Wicca Practical Magic, will be coming out on May 23, from Althea Press. You can already pre-order it on Amazon!

I’m really excited, because this is something I wish had been available when I first started studying Pagan belief systems. If you’ve read all the Wicca 101 type books, and have no idea how to actually put what you’ve learned into practice, this book is written just for you.

I’ll have more to share in the coming weeks, with all kinds of details – including how you can be part of my street team/ambassador group and score a free digital copy – but for now, just to tease you a bit, here’s a peek at the cover!

Join Me at Dayton Pagan Pride!

daytonppd

You guys, I’m super excited to announce that I’ll be presenting at Dayton’s Pagan Pride celebration on Saturday, October 1st! If you’ve been wondering about the magic of household witchcraft, you’re not going to want to miss my workshop – we’ll talk about household altars, kitchen magic, and (totally my favorite part) using mundane items in magical workings. Yes, if you’ve ever pondered how to use things like dog biscuits, a pair of socks, or an adult toy in a magical working, you totally need to stop by for this one.

I’m pleased to say I’m in really good company for this event – author Tish Owen, singer Kellianna, and rootworker Elizabeth Ruth will be there, along with Michael Dangler and Seamus Dillard of The Magical Druid. Join us for a magical day of ritual, workshops, vendors, and more!

 

In Which I Hang Out At Media Medusa

I don’t know if you guys are familiar with Media Medusa, and specifically, Nancy Basile, but if you’re not following the site, you should be. All kinds of cool pop culture things lurk over at MM, from TV to movies to books, so go check it out!

Nancy Basile at Media Medusa is awesome and you should read her stuff.
Nancy Basile at Media Medusa is awesome and you should read her stuff.

I first met Nancy when we were co-conspirators at About.com, and we discovered pretty quickly that we had a lot in common – the same weird sense of humor, an unabashed love for Outlander‘s Jamie Fraser, and no lie, we both have the Imperial March from Star Wars as our ringtones. It’s like we’re Geek Twinsies.

Anyway, I got to do a little virtual hangout with Nancy for an interview over at MM, and you should really go read it, because she asked some great questions about the creative process (spoiler: my process is possibly non-existent), inspiration, and why I even write in the first place. Go read it now! Author Patti Wigington Casts a Spell

The Good Witch’s Daily Spellbook

OMG YOU GUYS.

I have some super exciting news! I’ve partnered with Sterling Publishing to create The Good Witch’s Daily Spellbook! This collection of 366 spells – one for each day of the year – is designed in a way that’s useful for both beginners and advanced practitioners. No fancy hard-to-find tools, no hours-long rituals, just magic on the fly when you need it – as it should be!

Like a boss!

I’m super excited about this project, and my editor, Chris Barsanti, is going to be an absolute dream to work with. TGWDSB will be out in December 2016, marketed in Barnes & Noble stores (Sterling is a wholly-owned subsidiary of BN), and available in a snazzy gift-sized hardcover for just $7.98. I’ll let everyone know as things progress, like cover artwork and pre-order options, but I’m so jazzed about this that I can barely type coherent sentences right now. Stay tuned for more, and join me for one heck of a magical ride!
