Update: September 7, 2020
The "first round" of formatting is completed.
I was naively unprepared for multiple rounds of formatting.
Now is the time for patience and trust. Please know this:
The book will be produced when the preliminary steps are done, and as much as I want to get this into your hands, the process takes time.
Here are the remaining steps: Cover design, Proofreading, Upload files to the printing platforms, Proof copies/Final check, then marketing and book launch.
Watch this space for the launch date announcement.
You Can Still Pre-order: online through PayPal or Venmo. You will get a signed copy plus the opportunity to enroll in any online Witchcraft courses I offer online. The book will soon be available on Amazon.
Another way you can help: I'm looking for people to beta-test a quiz I'm developing as a marketing tool. If you're interested, email me at with the subject line "Quiz." Thanks! 😊 👍
