Guest Post with Giveaway ~ Looking For Mr. Good Witch by Joyce & Jim Lavene


The Magic of Trees

Like stones, fire, and other elements of the natural world – trees can be sued for divination, protection, and healing.

Witches believe in the power of trees. In many ways, everyone does. We are in awe of the elder woods and the giant redwoods. We find peace and solace in a walk through the trees on a fall day. Trees make our lives better and we fight to preserve them.

The wood from tress can be made into amulets or wands. We can consider the different way it would feel before we buy a home with pine trees or oaks surrounding it. What are our feelings about a lot with many trees compared to one with only a few?

Different trees represent different aspects in magic. Apple trees and their wood represent fertility, peace, and joy. Birch trees represent new beginnings. Cedar represents cleansing and protection. Wands made from cherry trees are used to stabilize and ground the seeker.

Elder trees and their wood are believed to protect. Plant an elder tree close to a house and it will protect the house from fire and lightning. Hawthorne trees and wood encourage creativity.

Witches believe you should always choose your surroundings carefully to encourage or discourage negative and positive aspects that need work in your life. Not a bad idea regardless of whether you are a witch or not!

Everyone’s favorite retired witches from Spell Booked have returned and are diving into troubled waters to find a sinister sea witch…


A sea witch has been leaving bodies in her wake up and down the Carolina coast, baffling authorities who are finding drowning victims with no water in their lungs. The fin-icky female will continue to kill young male witches until she finds her perfect man—the one who survives her mating ritual—so she can live for another hundred years. And now coven hopeful Brian Fuller is about to be ensnared in her net.

Retired witches Molly and Elsie, along with the ghost of Olivia and her daughter Dorothy, need all the help they can get to stop the sea witch. Aided by a selkie and a crème puff–craving mermaid, they’re determined to keep Brian out of her murky clutches. But are they all about to get in over their heads?
