Welcome to Season of the Witch, a month long event celebrating witches in fiction and the authors who create them. We have some great authors taking part and a wide range of witch books for you to check out.
Since I was a child, I have been fascinated by witches and magick. Growing up I was a huge fan of the Secret Circle series by L.J. Smith, T*Witches by H. B. Gilmour and Randi Reisfeld and the Sweep series by Cate Tiernan. Later I moved on to Kelley Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld series, Kim Harrison’s Rachel Morgan series and Melissa de la Cruz’s Witches of East End.
From the age of thirteen I would read anything I could on the subject of witchcraft. I studied crystals, herb use and candle magick.
There is a big difference between witches in real life and witches in fiction. Mostly superpowers! But I find that the best witch stories are based in reality and use elements of real magick for spellcasting.
The authors featured this month have written novels with witches as their lead characters and they will share their work with us through interviews and spotlight posts.
Feel free to ask questions by commenting on the posts and please be respectful of everyone taking part.
Enjoy Season of the Witch.
