The Great October Book Giveaway - Week 2


One of the very first witchy blogs I found when I started blogging, was Confessions of a Pagan Soccer Mom.  Although I wasn't a mom, I was instantly taken in by "Mrs. B" and her no-fuss approach to witchcraft.  Her subjects ranged from household herb magic to Halloween, to a crazy cat named Tanner who got herself into everything.  More than that, Kris threw her support behind different causes, like educating about the witch hunts going on in Africa and other areas of the world, and standing up for bullying in schools.  There was and still is, something for everyone at Confessions of Pagan Soccer Mom.

It was no surprise then, that Kris was approached to collect some of her blog's best into book form.  On October 1st Red Wheel/Weiser released "Mrs. B's Guide to Household Witchery - Everyday Magic, Spells, and Recipes."

I am very happy to announce that I have two copies of Kris Bradley's book to give away!  And Kris has offered to not only autograph them, but to personalize them for the winners and ship them off herself.

This give away starts today and ends in one week, on Monday, October 15th.




And here's the admin bits:

All you have to do to enter to win one of these books is leave a comment, and let me know in what capacity you connect to Rue and Hyssop.  Are you subscribed by email or RSS feed?  Do you follow by "friend connect" in the sidebar?  Are you a Twitter follower or a Facebook friend?  Even if you've never left a comment before or just happened upon the blog today and subscribed - all are welcome - just let me know how you plug in to my little world!

*Please ensure that there is some way for me to contact you if you win.

 Anyone can enter the contest!  I will ship overseas, but at the cheapest freight price (it can get quite expensive otherwise.)  - In this case, I will have Kris ship the book to me, and then I will get it out to you.  I don't want her to have the extra cost of overseas shipping.

I know the "letting me know you are connected with me" can get a bit old if you are entering a giveaway each week - so let's say that if you left me a comment with that info on the first week's giveaway post, just direct me there.  A simple comment and "see week one for how I know you" is sufficient.

Good luck!

Oh Jen! What a lovely, lovely giveaway -- thanks so much for the chance to win Mrs. B.'s book! I well remember her mentioning on her blog that she is busy writing a book, and I am so excited for her that her dream became reality. YEAH! :) Anyway, the winners will both be lucky, especially since she will even write a personal note for them. How sweet is that?

Well, you know I have been a long-time follower of your blog and I also subscribe to getting blog updates via email. :) As always I hope you also consider me a friend. :)
