The Great October Book Giveaway - Grimoire of the Thorn-Blooded Witch



Another charming author that made an appearance at Faerieworlds this summer was Raven Grimassi (along with his wise and witty partner in life and magic, Stephanie).  He spoke passionately about the wisdom of plants, both wild and those of his yard and gardens, and he touched on some of the history of witchcraft, as well as how his practice works.

He brought with him, his newest book, "Grimoire of the Thorn-Blooded Witch - Mastering the Five Arts of Old World Witchery" and of course I had to bring home a couple copies for you!

Here is what the jacket has to say:

"For the first time in more than a decade, Grimassi introduces readers to a new system of witchcraft, one that draws upon the old ways and the old days. Rich with spells, rituals, and detailed illustrations of plant spirits, Grimassi dares readers to take the path that leads deep into the darkened woods—to traverse upon the Thorned Path.

Meet the entities that dwell within the organic memory of the earth, the devas, the deities, the magical life force that lies within the wooded glen. Learn to work with these spirits, and use their wisdom to transform your life and your practice."


The song and dance is the same as all the previous giveaways this month.  Leave a comment and let me know how you bump into me in the wide electronic world (do you follow the blog, or connect with me on social media)? If you've left that info before, you are good!  If you are new here and are wondering about participation or shipping restrictions - read this first.  

I will draw the names for the two copies of Raven's book on Friday, October 24th at 9pm Pacific/Midnight Eastern time.

Good luck!

I LOVE Grimassi! There are so few good authors out there and even less who feature Italian Magick over Celtic.

Anyways, I'm pretty sure I found you through Bloglovin when I was looking for new Pagan themed blogs. I shared your blog on my PagansTogether Facebook page, I do hope that's okay.

When I win you can email me at SabrinaMBowen@gmail.com

Blessings & Thanks!

You had me at Blooded.

Um... are you sure you want me to tell people how we bump into each other? I mean, that could start talk, you know? Bumping is rather... um, interesting, and people's tongues... well, you.

I guess I can talk about our Facebook, Twitter, Blog bumping... and the smoke signals. Let's not forget the smoke signals. ♥
