A NOTE FROM DOROTHY...

Thank you for visiting the Morrison Manor Library. I'm absolutely delighted that you've chosen to spend some time here. Since shopping is supposed to be fun - and I'd be positively mortified if your experience here was anything less than pleasant - taking a moment to read the information below will ensure your good time. ;)

  • Because of increased sales due to the popularity of purchasing personally autographed books here, all sales are now being handled via Pay Pal only. I'm simply not set up to handle credit cards in any other way. But what if you don't have a credit card? That's not a problem. You can easily configure your Pay Pal account to send me an e-check, and I can handle that just fine. ;)
  • I only ship orders within the United States. International shipment fees would probably cost you more than the cover price of the book, so I've chosen not to go there.
  • If you wish to purchase several books at once, please email me before adding them to the shopping cart. That way, you won't be overcharged for shipping, and I won't have to calculate a refund.
  • While products ordered from this site usually ship within 24 hours, they may take up to 14 days to ship. Why? Because I handle all the shipping myself - and if I'm on the road for appearances, I can't be here to handle your orders. That being the case, please check my Tour Schedule before placing your order.
  • With that out of the way, I hope you have an absolutey wonderful time here. (I wouldn't have it any other way!

    Items ordered after December 3rd CANNOT BE GUARANTEED for Yule or Xmas delivery!

    Items ordered after December 15th will NOT ship until January!!!

    EVERYDAY MAGIC
    (Winner of the 1999 COVR Visionary Award for Best General Interest Book)

    Everyday MagicGot a problem with your computer? Does traffic make you crazy? Are you so stressed out you don't even know your own name?

    Does the search for ritual solutions for today's problems, coupled with the never-ending quest for obscure spell ingredients leave you exhausted and empty-handed? Do you ever find yourself saying, "There's got to be an easier way?"

    If the answer to even one of these questions is "Yes!" your magical problems are over. This is the book for you.

    In keeping with the common problems of living in the modern world, Everyday Magic updates the Ancient Arts to fit today's lifestyle. It encourages the use of modern convenience items as viable magical tools, and incorporates the use of easy-to-find spell ingredients - most of which are already in your kitchen cabinet, or can be substituted with such. A discussion of the items and forces that boost magical work is included, as well as a multitude of time-saving tips, and a large assortment of easy-to-follow recipes for creating your own oils, incenses, potions, and powders.

    Boasting a collection of over 300 spells and rituals, this book addresses the everyday concerns of the modern practitioner. Subject areas not only include the age-old problems of humankind, but also cover topics like computer problems, stress management, abuse, addiction, divorce, and traffic management. Even better, each spell has been personally tested for effectiveness and performed as directed, results in successful, powerful magic.

    This book will forever change your perception of the Ancient Arts, for it is truly a grimoire for today. It offers an exciting selection of opportunities to change your personal reality and live in the magically modern world you only dreamed of. Be warned, though: after reading this book, you may never again use your blender or coffee-maker in the same ways!

Step into the kitchen and whip up a delectable holiday treat, then wander through the assortment of gift and decorating ideas to find the perfect solution to holiday woes.

    THE CRAFT: A Witch's Book of Shadows

    The CraftAlthough most of my other books have been geared toward a readership age of twenty and over, I get an exorbitant amount of mail from readers between the ages of eleven and fifteen. The contents of their letters vary, but in each and every one of them I find one common question. It is, of course, "How do I begin?" Because of the legal ramifications of teaching minors, I've always answered this question with the utmost care. I was so careful, in fact, that I all but skirted the entire issue. Of course, I was answering as a parent - a parent who knew full well that another set of parents might not wish for their children to embrace the Craft. But as much as I believed in parental rights, I also believed that all people - regardless of age, environment, or personal background - had the right to an education no matter what knowledge was involved. It's always been quite the dilemma for me, and no amount of pondering has ever made me feel any better about the situation.

    At least, not until now.

    That being the case, The Craft provides real information and real magical training without fear of legal ramification. Geared toward 'tweens and teens (but suitable for newcomers of any age), it offers a real book of shadows written from an eclectic point of view. Beginning with basic studies, magical theory, and training exercises, it moves forward with instructions for making/obtaining, using and working with magical tools, then builds toward Circle-casting specifics like altar setup, calling the Watchtowers, the blessing of cakes and wine, and so forth. An assortment of miscellaneous chants, spells, and invocations are included, as well as sample rituals, ideas, and recipes for celebrating the Esbats and Sabbats.

    You can find The Craft in your local bookstore or order an autographed copy here. Please attach a note stating the name to which you'd like the book autographed.

    EVERYDAY SUN MAGIC

    EVSun MagicThe Sun impacts your life like no other force in the Universe. He brings the day, wakes you in the morning, and brightens your attitude. He warms the planet, tends to your oxygen supply, and distributes daily doses of vitamin D. But even with all that on His plate, the Sun also finds time to bring your every magical effort to fruition. And once you learn to harness His energies and bring them into your life, worry over magical success will become a thing of the past. In fact, you may wonder how you ever managed any effort without Him!

You'll learn the magical importance of His seldom discussed energies - rainbows, solar eclipses, and Sun storms - and how to use them to full advantage. Then it's off to explore the Sun's position at your birth, the day you were born, and how both impact your magic. Afterward, enjoy introductions to each astrological sign, learn how they empower your life and set sail to magic, and discover how to welcome them with fun-filled celebrations.

    UTTERLY WICKED:
    Curses, Hexes & Other Unsavory Notions

    (Winner of the 2008 COVR Award for Best Wiccan/Pagan Book)

    Utterly WickedHexes, curses and other unsavory notions. Most magical practitioners won't even discuss them. Why? Because they'd much rather find a positive solution that benefits all concerned. And, there's nothing wrong with that.

    Occasionally, though, our problems are such that nothing in the positive solution arena will handle them. It's time to make a decision to stand tough, be strong, and take definitive action to defend ourselves. And, if you're ready to do that-if you're ready to own that action and take responsibility for it-then Utterly Wicked is the book for you!

    Jam-packed with more than one hundred rituals, incantations, hexes and curses, this book is the quintessential primer for learning all those magical tricks that no one wants to talk about. Do you know the proper way to enter a cemetery? Utterly Wicked tells you how, as well as the proper methods for collecting and using graveyard dirt. Explore the little known secrets of the 11" fashion doll and see why it's become such a valuable magical tool. Then learn to prepare Hot Foot Powder, Four Thieves Vinegar, Goofer Dust, and other magical components specifically designed to obliterate your toughest problems. Most important, though, you'll also find the tools to protect yourself, your family, and your home from ever being bothered with these sorts of difficulties again. A must have for any Witch's bookshelf!

    LUCINDA'S WEB
    (Winner of the 2009 COVR Award for Best Visionary Fiction Book)

    Lucinda's WebTess Logan knows magic. She knows how it works, why it works, and what it takes to make it work. But that’s not all. She also knows how to make it happen. It’s simply a part of who she is, for Tess Logan — despite all the other attributes that make her such a thoroughly modern woman — is also a thoroughly modern Witch.

    No amount of magical experience or expertise, though, could have ever prepared her for this. In fact, she never even dreamed it was possible: A living, breathing set of spells cast more than a hundred years ago with enough stamina to follow her into the present day. Yet, here it is, writhing and twisting with activity, permeating every sector of her life, and slipping its tentacles into the lives of everyone she holds dear. Now, she’s faced with having to disentangle each slippery strand and destroy the magic without destroying those she loves — or herself.

    You can find Lucinda's Web in your local book store, or order an autographed copy here. Please attach a note stating the name to which you'd like the book autographed.
