Pagan Culture’s 513th Post Giveaway

An English cleric with a questionable appetite for gambling, and who perhaps enjoyed copying other people’s stuff, said, “Imitation is the sincerest [form] of flattery.” I don’t know how much one should trust a man with Charles Caleb Colton’s record, but hey, it’s a good quote, so I’m using it.

Why? Because I wish to respectfully borrow part of Oma Linda’s idea, and celebrate Pagan Culture’s 513th post with a giveaway. The celebration will last 7 days, and then a lucky Wicked Darling will win a copy of Retribution, Sherrilyn Kenyon’s latest Dark-Hunter novel.
This is a very simple giveaway. And guess what? You can enter seven times; once every day. Here is how:

Leave a comment telling me reasons why you read Pagan Culture. Use a post published before October 1st, 2011, to support your claim. Example: I enjoy reading Pagan Culture because posts like Doing It Twice or More remind me that I’m not the only person who is always thinking about sex, reading, writing, blogging…” You can do this five different times, on five different days, with five different posts. 

*This giveaway ends December 5th at 5:13pm EST.
**On a different note… I’m taking a week or so off. It’s the end of the semester, which means that my scholarly witchy self is busy and then some. But I’ve given you a bunch of reading, too, haven’t I? I would hate for you to feel left out, my Wicked Luvs ;-)

    OOO. You know how I love Sherrilynn Kenyon books. :)

    I love Pagan Culture because you inspire me to write with your awesome All Hallows Grim blog party. I think the story I wrote [Dragon Love] was one of my better stories I've come up with and it wouldn't have created it without you prompting me to write it! So TYVM for an awesome blog and enjoy  your break. :)

  2. Well I had to scroll back to september and your post on http://pagan-culture.blogspot.com/2011/09/replying-to-hate-based-organizations.html.
    This was the first post I read and was hooked. It was and is so refreshing in a world of let downs to find a like minded pagan :D XXX

    There are many reasons why I read Pagan Culture - most of all I love the mix of everyday life and witchiness, showing that these two do indeed go together well, http://pagan-culture.blogspot.com/2009/05/witches-dance-naked-in-woods.html - this being one example. ^^

    I always enjoy reading Pagan Culture!!  I loved the time your talked of prejudice against "religions".  Such as Christianity and WitchCraft!  How ignorance fuels discrimination and we all need to be a little more loving and open to receive from one another!!
    Love you girl
    And I love Kenyon's Dark Hunter novels!!
    So you can just pull my name right now!  Ha!
    Hugs

  7. Thank you for linking your giveaway to PPBH!! I think the way you have it set up is so wonderful! It took me some time think of a post, but as I scrolled I remembered this great quote: 'Magic is reality sprinkled with will, with intend and with a little witchy flare; practical Witches embrace this knowledge, and live by it." from http://pagan-culture.blogspot.com/2011/09/heart-soul-and-center-of-practical.html What an amazing well put description! I love your way with words!


    Blessings,Kourtney

  21. Magaly, I hate to be a pain, but I can't pick one reason why, or one post, to tell you why I keep coming back to read your posts, or to see your beautiful smile! Personally, I love the way you write! You write from the heart! There is no ways about it! You dance when you write and I love it! Even when you are giving someone shit, you do it with class and again, you know it's coming from your soul! You are not tippy toeing around! It's you, all you, why I keep coming back! You are fun, loving, honest, creative and again, you have a beautiful smile! Oh, and you are so wicked!!! But, if you tell me I have to pick a  post I will! I don't want to cheat, so I will check back with what you write ;o) Hugs ;o) Have a great week off ;o) One more thing, I don't write and that's one thing you have challenged me with, when I wrote for your Witch blog party!

  22. I enjoy reading Pagan Culture because I appreciate fiction that is both literary and entertaining as hell. A well written tale, raw, sexy, bold, touching and sometimes shocking. A few of my favorites are - "Talk to me Darlene" (Wow! I didn't see that one coming.), "The Ones Who Bite and Swallow", "Moonchild" and "Goddess Nude".Best of luck on your end of semester, my beautiful friend.

  23. I subscribed to Pagan Culture in September of this year but I kept coming back after I read your post: The Heart, Soul and Center of Practical Magic .  I love Practical Magic so that was great but I also loved the way you answered that e-mail question about being a Witch. 
    The part that “sealed the deal” for me came when I read your quote at the bottom of the post which was elegantly phrased, “Magic is reality sprinkled with will, with intent and with a little witchy flare; practical Witches embrace this knowledge, and live by it.”  This is so true and it gives clarity to everyone about what magick really is.
    Besides that, I enjoy the candid way in which you share your life with us.  I have difficulty with that and I’m trying to open up more when I write in my blog but it’s a little hard for me.  And of course, the tales of the little Princess are always fascinating.
     I have a confession to make:  I’ve never read any of Sherrilyn Kenyon’s books.  Since I don’t know the Dark-Hunter series, you can skip my name from the drawing. But I’ll keep it in mind for a future read.  Right now my “To Be Read” list is pretty long. : )

    I love your writing style - you connect with your audience, entrance and delight!

    I like the pineapple post - cause I love pineapple too.

    I haven't been around for a while, my humblest apologies, so will follow you to be sure I don't forget again!

  25. I love the way you show off all of the items you receive from others with a gratitude that can only come from a beautiful heart. You have a gift in making people feel truly special, my friend.

  26. Hi Magaly! I have to agree with Mina and Stacy in that I can't pick just one blog. I've been reading your blogs daily since I started blogging and I've truly loved every one of them. You write with candor and unapologetically...it's refreshing. You let us see you. And because I have a dark side and love creepy gory stuff, I love your stories. lol :)

  27. I'm smiling right now, a huge thing that pulls on the muscles of my soul and makes my face glow. What beautiful things to say Stacy, you are an amazing friend. Hugs! And I can't wait to read what you'll do on our next Witches in Fiction Blogoversary Party. It's just 4 months away!

  28. Now I must write something beautiful and bloody to celebrate the goodness that is you, my adored Mina. I think I'll share a bit of "Laila," a witch with a vivid imagination and the determination to do deathly things to does who dare try to hurt her or the ones she loves. I like her so much!

  29. And it is so great to have you, Carmen. I enjoy your writing, too, and can't wait to get to know you better. 

    When you read your first Sherri book, please let me know. I warn you though, the Urban Fantasy Goddess is freaking addicting! 

    ReplyDelete
  30. WoooHooo! I hope you enjoy Sherri's writing. She is one of my favorite tale weaver, and her life is an inspiration. Whenever I get stuck on a tale, I read her bio and tell myself, "If she had to go through all this, well, so can I."
