Merry Meet, Chesterfield Pagans!
I’m writing to you via your witchvox.com account to let you know about my exciting new Wiccan fiction, “The Grimoire Chronicles: Veil Between Worlds.” It’s exciting to be able to reach out to Pagans across the pond through witchvox! My book is Pagan-themed fiction about true Witches and Wiccans who do real magick and rituals; this is not the Hollywood stereotype. We need a strong character who takes charge of life with authentic witchcraft, and I really want the world to know more about us to help remove prejudice. Plus, it’s just plain fun!
The book is fast paced and true to the Craft. I’ve had amazing feedback and reviews from the Pagan and Wiccan community. The best and most frequent comments are “I couldn’t put it down!” and, “This is for all ages, not just young adults.” I’ve been moved by the amazing feedback, and you can see links to reviews on my website.
The Story: The Witch’s New Year looms, and the Veil Between Worlds thins. Seventeen-year-old Cassie heads home from school and meets Trenton, a beautiful boy with an enchanting voice. Darkness blankets the encounter so Cassie forgets she ever met him. . . and what he did to her. For other girls the lost time would be the end of the story, but Cassie is Wiccan and she uses her intelligence and authentic witchcraft to remember the truth. Her spell sets in motion a mind-blowing adventure that takes her to another dimension, the astral plane, where anything is possible and a dangerous romance with Trenton blossoms. But who. . . or what. . . is Trenton?
The story is fantasy. The spells are real. I’d love to know what you think of my book. It’s only £0.86 on e-readers (if you don’t have an e-reader, you can download the amazon.co.uk kindle app for free; iPad, other e-readers, or Nook use smashwords.com or barnesandnoble.com) . You can read a free sample and watch the book trailer on my website at www.sallydubats.com !
The story unfolds through an entire Wheel of the Year, so watch for the next in my 8-book series, “The Grimoire Chronicles: Winter Solstice” – coming soon! Paperback editions to follow. Feel free to e-mail. I would love to hear from you!

And it got me thinking: what are your favourite pagan works of fiction? For me it has to be Brian Bates Web of Wyrd, but then I suddenly realised I couldn’t think of any more… there must be some, so have you read the above? Do you already have a favourite pagan themed work of fiction which you can share? Do you think that paganism has a place as a theme in fiction or not?
