Merry meet all,
‘Tis near that awesome magical time of year. The next turn in the Wheel of the Year is Mabon. Next to Samhain, Mabon is also one of my fave times of year. Autumn leaves flutter down to the garden. The air is crisper. Yes my dears, autumn is here.
Mabon lends itself well to magical workings. Divination is more powerful because of the energy of fall.
My novel, Between the Worlds, has lots of magic in it. My main character Rosemary is a clairvoyant Witch/ medium. She can channel spirits and works some awesome candle magic. One of her special tools is a candleholder. This candleholder ignites without aid of matches or a lighter. She chants something and then it lights. It allows her to see what lurks in the dark in her haunted home.
As magickal as Rosemary is, she also possesses a strong heart whether she realizes it or not. It is her strong heart that helps her help the ghost. She sympathizes with the ghost because she knows how it feels to lose someone you love.
The ghost uses many methods to be able to communicate with her. She gets messages in her dreams from the ghost. Objects move, doors slam and the mysterious scent of seaweed wafts through the house. The ghost bears a curse of carrying seaweed everywhere he goes. He died at sea.
The story is magickal indeed. Crows hound her and she sees the ghost everywhere she goes. Add the natural beautiful setting of the Cape Breton Highlands National Park and you have a magical novel set in a rustic countryside. Perfect for a ghost story!
