SO beautiful…it’s really real now, baby!  Add this book to your TBR shelf on Goodreads.  Squee!  Sending waves of gratitude to the amazing team at Wesier Books.

Here’s the Goodreads blurb:

Exhausted? Angry? Broke? The Goddesses are here to help!

Goddess magic is powerful magic: with the help of the right goddess, simple spells can yield amazing results. In Goddess Spells for Busy Girls, Jen McConnel offers 80 spells imbued with the vibrant force of 25 Goddesses from around the globe.

McConnel provides an introduction to 25 celestial ladies, to make sure you are asking the right goddess for help: Athena for memory retention, Aphrodite to gain confidence, Persephone to find you path, and Sekhmet to prevent illness. Each section includes the history and lore behind the goddess, and three simple spells to invoke her help:

Health and wellness (Athena, Sekhmet, Amaterasu, Sarasvati, and Oya)
Relationships (Aphrodite, Persephone, Mary, Hera, and Parvati)
Hearth and home (Brigid, Hestia, Juno, Bast, and Changing Woman)
Travel and protection (Kali, Isis, Hecate, Artemis, and Gaia)
Abundance and fortune (Lakshmi, Kuan Yin, Hathor, Demeter, and Fortuna)
Group magic

For the busy young woman who wants it all but needs help getting it, Goddess Spells for Busy Girls can help you achieve love, balance, protection, and abundance in your life.

Coming in 2014 from Weiser Books!

The title is available for pre-order on Amazon.
