Welcome to week 3 of The Great October Book Giveaway! Because my readership is not all witchy folk, and there are a few gardeners and backyard herbalists like myself who pop by the blog, I wanted to offer some lovely herb books this week.
This week we have 2 books by Deborah J. Martin!
I was stumbling around as a Twitter virgin about a year ago, when this wonderful person called "The Herby Lady" started following me. I immediately followed her back and within a short time had tracked her down on Facebook and subscribed to her blog. DJ is a wealth of information about herbs and has a killer sense of humor to boot!
From her website: "As a member of the American Herbalists' Guild and the Herb Society (UK), I keep up with all the new information coming out on the uses of herbs in a medicinal sense. My favorite pastime (apart from playing in the dirt of my large herb garden) is researching herbs: their medicinal and magical uses; and applications and stories about herbs in history/mythology."
Deborah has written two books. "Herbs - Medicinal, Magical, Marvelous!" will be giveaway number one. This week only, you have a choice for giveaway number 2 between "The Green Witch's Formulary" and the "2013 Herbal Almanac" so as to offer a non-witchy alternative.
Admin bits are the same as previous weeks' giveaways. Be a friend of the blog in some capacity and leave a comment! I will draw the names for the herbal books on Tuesday, October 23rd!
