#AtoZChallenge: W is for Witchcraft


I've always been intrigued by the whole witchcraft thing. I used to buy all kinds of books about it, one was particularly cool (at the time) because its cover was made of velvet. It was gorgeous. I still don't know what happened to that book. I think it was a book of spells, actually (not that I've ever tried to cast any I might add).
Perhaps this is why I wrote about witches in The Raven Saga... one of the main characters is a witch and comes from a long line of witches. I loved writing her story. It was a lot of fun.
My love of all things Wicca also goes for movies. Give me a good witchy film, and I'm happy. I've already mentioned my love for Practical Magic in this challenge, so you all know it's my all time favourite. However, I do have some other guilty pleasures:

Harry Potter
I hadn't intended to include this but of course it's FULL of witches! No wonder its a favourite book / movie series!

The Craft
I loved both Robin Tunney and Neve Campbell in this eerie teen flick. It was so dark and creepy too. Awesome!

The  Witches of Eastwick
Loved Cher, Michelle Pfeiffer and Susan Sarandon. Not to mention Jack Nicholson.

Hocus Pocus
I adore Bette Midler, she's one of my all time fave actresses (have you seen Beaches? Amazing!) and she was brilliant with both Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy.

Teen Witch
One of the best teen movies... ever! I adored  Robyn Lively.

Don't forget to download your FREE copy of Raven. There are two more books in The Raven Saga: December Moon and The Lost Soul. You can also get a FREE copy of Daisy Madigan's Paradise, a Morgan Sisters novella. The sequel to Daisy Madigan's Paradise is also available: The Ghost of Josiah Grimshaw.


  1. Hi Suzy!
    I love witches of Eastwick and Hocus Pocus. LOL I have a fascination with magic in general. :) Great W post!
    I'm a new follower.
    I also wanted to let you know (in case you didn't) Your blog is taking an immense amount of time to download and read...

  2. Your novel Raven is actually $0.96 for me - maybe because I am in Canada? Regardless, I think I can afford $0.96 so I'll download it pronto!

    I love Wicca too, but I honestly need to learn more about the religion itself. I have never actually watched The Witches of Eastwick, but I think I should - maybe this weekend!

  3. I had a friend in junior high who was really into witchcraft. One time, she took a group of us to have a seance in the middle of a living room in an abandoned house at midnight. I was so fascinated by her, haha... I don't really believe in any of it though.

  4. Hi Summer! Thanks for following and letting me know about the time it takes to download. I must look into that. I'll be popping by your blog to check it out :)

    Hi Brandy! Head on over to Smashwords.com where you can get it for free!
    I've been trying to make it free on Amazon Canada but Amazon don't seem to want to play ball. Hopefully it will work soon. I hope you enjoy it! :)

    Hi Kristen! That would have terrified me... I'm interested in it all, but I'm too much of a wuss to try anything like that LOL!
