The Great October Giveaway - The Wild and The Weedy

Our next giveaway is a handful of books for those who love to spend some time outdoors (or even the armchair nature admirer.)

First up, by the talented Lupa from The Green Wolf, (whom I met at Faerieworlds and begged an autograph for you) we have New Paths To Animal Totems:


"I've written a great deal for people of an intermediate to advanced experience level, but this time I'm offering something for a more general audience, to include people who may never have even heard of totems before!

To give readers, especially those new to totemism, some guidance, I've offered a variety of exercises, meditations, and ritual ideas to play with along with the theory. And to illustrate the material further, there are examples seeded throughout the text. However, as with all my books, there's plenty for the more experienced practitioner to play with, and none of it is strictly "by the book", as it were."


Next up is a favourite author and a super cool lady - The Herby Lady to be exact - D.J. Martin.  She has a new book out this year and I've snapped up a signed copy for you - "Baneful!"




"Most everyone knows Socrates died from ingesting Hemlock. Have you heard about the Celtic chieftain who committed suicide by Yew? How about the duels between rivals who ate just half of a poison bean?
From Abrus precatorius to Viscum album, Master Herbalist Deborah Martin takes us on a journey of discovery … ninety-five herbs that, while they had or have their medicinal and magical uses, can be deadly."

And, because I have an extra one of these fun almanacs  - I'm throwing it in the pile too!


"Inspiring you with a bounty of innovative ideas and recipes, Llewellyn’s 2014 Herbal Almanac offers dozens of articles that explore many ways of using herbs, from gardening and cooking, to health and beauty, to herb craft and lore."


Want one of these three books?  The full lowdown is in this post. Quite simply - leave your comment below and let me know how we connect. If you've already left that on a previous entry, you don't have to repeat yourself. Feel free to let me know which book you fancy - I'll see what I can do as far as matching up winners with books. I'll draw the names of the three winners on Monday, October 21st at 6pm (Pacific.) Best of luck!

I would looooooove the Almanac, so gorgeous, or the Animal Totem book would be a whole new and wonderous thing to me. Thanks for the giveaway fun! xx

I'd love any of the three, but totems and animal guides are what I'm working with now, so that would be my first choice. :)

We connect on Facebook, Jen. I'd love the book on the "Worst Herbs," it's so right up my alley, or the book on totems, as I am doing more work with them right now. I have The Herbal Almanac already, I buy a copy every year. I keep them, too, so informative!

Been following your blog for some time and enjoying it. Don't think we have spoken outside of it though, but I may be wrong.

also, if it has any bearing, I already own Lupa's book.

I would love the Llewellyn Herbal Almanac. I already own Baneful and it's FANTASTIC.

The totem book looks good, but since it's just one, I have to go with my plant love.

Thank you for hosting this!
