New Release: The Witching Herbs

Book Synopsis:

Harold Roth is a leading authority on
plants and herbal magic. The Witching
Herbs is an in-depth exploration of
13 essential plants and herbs most
closely associated with witchcraft—13
because it’s the witching number and
reflects the 13 months of the lunar
calendar. The plants are poppy, clary
sage, yarrow, rue, hyssop, vervain,
mugwort, wormwood, datura, wild
tobacco, henbane, belladonna, and

The Witching Herbs offers a vast
amount of esoteric information
that is not easily found elsewhere and will be greeted
enthusiastically by those who already have extensive
experience and libraries. However, because Roth writes
simply and clearly, this material will be accessible to all
readers. The Witching Herbs is unique in that it combines
mysticism with practical instructions for growing each plant,
based on Roth’s 30 years of gardening expertise. Each
chapter focuses on one plant and includes information on
its unique plant spirit familiar, clear how-to instructions for
magical projects, and pragmatic information on growing
and cultivating.

This is the essential plant-worker’s guide. Roth is not only
a successful gardener, but also a magician and scholar of
the occult. No other book blends clear, practical gardening
techniques with equally lucid and sophisticated plant magic
so successfully.

Author Biography

within the modern occult community. For
over 15 years, he has owned and operated

herb magic, where he crafts and sells incense,
potions, and magical oils, as well as seeds.
He also does art with an occult slant (www. The Witching Herbs is his first book.


If you are in need of a reference book on essential plants for the witch's garden look no further. Whether you are looking for a writers reference, gardening tips or plant magic knowledge, this book has it all.  I found myself lost in its pages as if reading a story about all the different aspects of plants I had read about but never had the pleasure to know. And now I do thanks to this author's unique voice and perspective.

A continuing saga of love, life, family and friends.
Now the first three books are available in a single volume.

Yours Today for Just #99Cents!


All for Hope: 
Sometimes the safest distance between two hearts is no distance at all…
Kidnapping a baby wasn’t something Hope ever dreamed she would do. But she’s been burned by the legal system before, so when the court places her friend’s child into the custody of an abuser, she takes matters into her own hands. She steals the baby and fakes her death, hoping to make a clean getaway. She planned every detail, except one.
Her high school sweetheart and best friend, who left her years before, sees her at a gas station. Hope thinks all is lost, until he offers to help them.
Brennan had always been the love of Hope’s life, but he never wanted to be. She knows she cannot depend on him for long. However, as each day passes, it becomes painfully obvious that she is in way over her head. She goes with him, intending to keep him always an arm’s length away to protect her heart. But being on the run together sparks the old flames that once burned between Brennan and Hope.
Families, friends, and lovers must band together to save an innocent baby and a daring woman or both of their lives will be destroyed. Together, they’ll do it all for Hope.
Justice for All: 
Sometimes the road you’re on is just a detour to your heart’s destination…
Kay Rawley has plans. She might be the second child of an earl, but she wants a life away from her father’s estate in New Durma. She wants a life apart from her family’s name. Becoming a lawyer was a bright, shiny object she just couldn’t resist grabbing. Her classes are complete, and all she has to do is pass the bar to get permanent employment at the Dallas law firm where she’s been interning for the past year.
Kay’s been on Audrick Van Buren’s radar since the day she walked into his classroom two years ago. That admiration only grew when she came to work for his firm. But if there’s anything he recognizes, it’s a woman who’s driven–and Kay is definitely one. It’s all he can do to keep his distance and allow her the chance to come into her own. What Van doesn’t know is that someone else is watching Kay, too, and if he doesn’t step between them, that person might not only derail her career but threaten her very life.
Things aren’t always what they seem, and Kay’s about to learn that the best laid plans are so much better when they go astray…
All for Family: 
Wedding bells will soon be ringing in the Rawley family, but gearing up for Van and Kay’s nuptials revives old insecurities for Kay’s sister-in-law Meg. When she learns that her ex-husband is asking for her from his hospital bed, Meg must confront the painful memories of her past.
Family is everything for Jeremy Rawley. Most important is the one he and Meg created together. But their beginning was tangled in memories he wishes his wife could forget for good. A call from her past brings them back to a place he thought they’d never have to be again.
Forgiveness may be the key, but the first step is finding the locked heart that needs it…
Plus, get All for a Little Christmas, A Rawley Family Story:
Former police officer Robert Guillory’s life has changed since he arrested Hope Rawley for kidnapping. Only his closest friends knows about his last case before leaving the force. Eva Lipton is one of those close friends, but she’s been trying to get even closer ever since his retirement. When the chance to work with him on a church theft drops into her lap, she doesn’t hesitate to call on him. Can a little holiday miracle give Eva the Christmas gift she’s been hoping for?

About Olivia Hardin

olicia-hardin-author-photoWhen Olivia Hardin started having movie-like dreams in her teens, she had no choice but to begin putting them to paper. Before long, the writing bug had bitten her, and she knew she wanted to be a published author. Several rejections plus a little bit of life later, she was temporarily “cured” of the urge to write. That is, until she met a group of talented and fabulous writers who gave her the direction and encouragement she needed to get lost in the words again.
Olivia has attended three different universities over the years and toyed with majors in Computer Technology, English, History and Geology. Then one day she heard the term “road scholar,”' and she knew that was what she wanted to be. Now she “studies” anything and everything just for the joy of learning. She's also an insatiable crafter who only completes about 1 out of 5 projects, a jogger who hates to run, and she’s sometimes accused of being artistic.
A native Texas girl, Olivia lives in the beautiful Lone Star state with her husband, Danny and their puppy, Bonnie.

Gallowglass by Jennifer Allis Provost @parthalan @PureTextuality


The first installment in a new series by fantasy author Jennifer Allis Provost!
After Karina and her brother, Chris’s, lives fall apart in separate yet equally spectacular ways, they leave New York behind and head to the UK. Karina buries herself in research for her doctoral thesis, all the while studiously not thinking about the man who broke her heart, while Chris—who’d been a best-selling author before his ex-fiancĂ©e sued him for plagiarism—drinks his way across the British Isles.
In Scotland, they visit the grave of Robert Kirk, a seventeenth- century minister who was kidnapped by fairies. No one is more shocked than Karina when a handsome man with a Scottish brogue appears, claiming to be the Robert Kirk of legend. What’s more, he says he spent the last few hundred years as the Gallowglass, the Seelie Queen’s personal assassin. When they’re attacked by demons, Karina understands how dearly the queen wants him back.
As Karina and Robert grow closer, Chris’s attempts to drown his sorrows lead him to a pub, and a woman called Sorcha. Chris is instantly smitten with her, so much so he spends days with Sorcha and lies to his sister about his whereabouts. When Chris comes home covered in fey kisses, Karina realizes that the Seelie Queen isn’t just after Robert.
Can Karina outsmart the Seelie Queen, or is Robert doomed to forever be the Gallowglass?
