The Witchy Fun of All Hallows’ Eve!

Halloween is such a fun time of the year, a time when spooks and ghouls come out to play. What better time of the year to have as the backdrop for my latest book in the White Haven Witches series – All Hallows’ Magic.

At the moment I’m waiting on the cover and can’t wait to see it. As soon I can I’ll share it with you!

Halloween, or as it’s sometimes called, Samhain – pronounced soween – is traditionally a time when the veils between worlds are their thinnest, allowing our world, the world of Faeries, and that of the dead, to blend into one. It’s a time when we remember our ancestors and honour the dead. But it’s also a night of wonder, magic and mystery – and scary stuff …

I draw on these ideas in All Hallows’ Magic. The action centres around Old Haven Church as the discovery of witch-marks in a centuries old yew tree trigger events that are beyond the White Haven witches’ control. A rogue witch has arrived and she’s seeking vengeance – but for what?

So why I am focusing on a yew tree? Because they have many connotations with death, rebirth, and gateways to other realms. They were symbolic of transformation , were sacred to Hecate and the Crone aspect of the Triple Goddess, and were also important to Druids.

Yew Tree

Yew trees are generally always found in church yards and very likely predate most of them. They offer protection to the souls of the dead. Many of these yews are thought to be remnants of Druids’ sacred groves of which there were many until the Romans chopped them down. Anglesey was supposedly covered in trees until the Romans arrived. And importantly, yew trees are very poisonous, every single bit of them.

I also talk about ley-lines in my book. These are mysterious energy lines that run across the world, and which intersect at places of spiritual significance. Some people think they’re complete bunkum, and others believe in them completely. They were first theorised in 1921 and have been debated over ever since.

One such line runs through Cornwall, linking Stonehenge and St Michael’s Mount. I won’t go into all the details here, but if you’re interested, here’s a link.

I had lots of fun writing All Hallows’ Magic. Avery and the other witches are once again under threat, and have to find out what the mysterious rogue witch is up to, all the while preparing for Samhain and the town celebrations, and those of the Witches Council.

And did I mention shifters? Oh yes, they arrive in White Haven too. More on that next time!

All Hallows’ Magic will be released on October 31st 2019!

  5. Courtney Davies says:

    I discovered this series just after summer and read all three books in one week. Then I had to wait a month for this one to come out and had it preordered as soon as it was available. I love them!! Any ideas when book 5 will be available??

    1. TJ Green says:

      Thanks Courtney! I’m hopefully releasing book 5, Undying Magic, at the end of February next year, if I can get some serious writing done. Life seems to be getting in the way at the moment! I’m half way through it now πŸ™‚

  6. Priestess Kendra says:

    Loved the first 3 of the White Haven series can’t wait to get the next one. As a Wiccan myself the magick is great and on point with our beliefs and works the way we all wish. If you ever get to the US try to make it to Salam , Massachusetts as a tourist you will be amazed how close the history of White Haven is to their history, in different ways but similar even though the 20 people killed in 1792 were not witches in anyways

    1. TJ Green says:

      Thank you, so pleased you’re enjoying the series! I try to get the magick right, admittedly with a little artistic license! I’d love to go to Salem, it sounds fascinating. One day!

  7. Bonnie says:

    I love the whole series. I hope there will be more. I’ll be sad for it to end

    1. TJ Green says:

      Hi Bonnie, thank you. There will be more! I’m writing the spin-off now, and then I’ll start writing book 7! πŸ™‚
