“Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in!”- Michael Corleone, The Godfather: Part III
So, I’m celebrating the release of my new witchcraft book, The Eclectic Witch’s Glamoire, when I get an email from a publisher. Now, if you’ve never self published a book, you have no idea what a serious pain in the ass it is to do so. Some authors love the freedom and increased income self publishing can provide. I am not one of those authors. I would gladly pay a publisher to take some of the load off of me. I just love to research and write….that’s it.
You can imagine my excitement at receiving an inquiry from an actual, legit publisher. Well, my excitement quickly turned to confusion. The publisher had no idea that I had released a brand new book on glamour magic. They wanted me to write another Paleo cookbook!
I was completely caught off guard. Not only a week ago, I had deleted my Paleo Cajun Lady Facebook page. Preparations were being made to move the blog to a smaller server. I thought I was totally out of that genre.
If you’ve read my new book, you know the whole story of why, how and when I left that world behind. Why on earth would this opportunity come to me now?
Because that’s how witchcraft works!
When consulting my tarot cards daily, the messages I kept receiving were about abandoned success and oppression. Reading my cards, I wondered why these cards kept popping up. Surely, the messages were not referring to my new book, which was the reason for me questioning the cards in the first place. Honestly, it remained a mystery to me….until the email arrived.
While pondering the strange timing of the email, I realized there was indeed a reason I had put some of my Paleo recipes into my glamour magic book. There was also a reason I had written an entire chapter on kitchen glamour magic. Revealing the story of the abandonment of my successful Paleo food business ,in the pages of my new book, had served as a rekindling of my passion for creating healthy recipes as a part of my kitchen magic.
Fact was, I had never truly left. Writing my new book, I was sending intentions out into the universe. Powers, who are much wiser than me, began to manifest what my heart truly wanted.
Currently, I am in negotiations with this new publisher. It’s looking like I will be writing a new Paleo cookbook. Actually, it looks like I may be writing several healthy cookbooks for them. I’ll know more in the next couple of weeks.
Does that mean I won’t be writing any more witchcraft books? No, it does not. My new arrangement would allow me the time and finances to provide more witchcraft books for you. Since the contract I’m negotiating is exclusive to food and diet only, I’ll be free to publish my own books on other topics. Now, if I could get another publisher for my witchcraft books, I’d totally be down with that.
My whole purpose for writing this post was to show you how magick can work sometimes. When we set our intentions, and formulate spells, we think we know what we’re trying to manifest. Most often, what really happens, is the entities we work with know us better than we know ourselves. They can discover what our hearts truly desire, and bring them to fruition at just the perfect time.
Don’t ever give up on your magick. Just because your spell doesn’t seem to manifest your desire in what you’ve set as a timeline, doesn’t mean it’s not working. You may have to work through some personal growth and change, like I did. Or, the universe may need to move you away from certain people or situations. Have faith in your ability to manifest, and in the universe’s knowledge of your soul. Believe!
I’d like to sincerely thank all of you who have purchased and read my new book. If I could ask a favor, would you please write a small review on Amazon for me. I would so appreciate that. And, if you haven’t already, please pick up a copy of The Eclectic Witch’s Glamour: Glamour Spells & Rituals To Attract Love, Boost Beauty And Build Confidence, on Amazon. It’s available in kindle ebook and paperback.
Thank so much to all of you. May all your hearts’ desires manifest!
