Book Cover of the Week: Blessed Be - by Louise Tripp

As Wednesdays go, this one - smack in the caboose of October - felt a little like a virtual iron maiden. So much to do, so little time and me stretched very thin. After stomping around Clark & Belmont seeking Halloween costumes and then going to work for four hours, writing a blog entry was just not in the cards so to speak. Thus, I am presenting the Book Cover of the Week today - Thursday. And since we're in the month of October - the month of Halloween/Sam'hain - this seemed appropriate. My lovely, somewhat smudged and cracked (the spine, anyway) copy of Origins of Modern Witchcraft by Ann Moura

A recent conversation with an acquaintance about Wicca, Paganism and the like got me thinking about it. His viewpoint comes from a very sheltered existence, and his most recent brush with any information about these religions was during his newfound Buffy The Vampire Slayer phase. As with anything someone wants to learn about, I recommend books...lots and lots of books. But if you don't read much (*gasp*) then there are some informative videos out there, too.

Challenge: Recreate a book cover in photographs and I'll post it here next week. Or got an idea for a Book Cover of the Week?

Louise Tripp grew up in Edenton, North Carolina. She currently lives in Chicago, where she is revising her first YA novel and working in a public library. You can read her regular blog at
