A Magic Rose Petal Spell to Celebrate The Selkie Enchantress ~ Coming Soon!


I'm so excited to reveal the cover for the second story in the Seal Island Trilogy, coming out this summer! Thank you Heather Howland of Entangled Publishing for the gorgeous design!

The Selkie Enchantress is a modern-day fairy tale set on a magical Irish island where wild roses hold secrets to powerful spells and enchantments that can only be broken by true love's spell.


As readers of The Selkie Spell know, Irish islander, Caitlin Conner, has been in love with professor of Irish folklore, Liam O'Sullivan, for as long as she can remember. But just when he's starting to look at her as more than a friend, a mysterious woman arrives on Seal Island and captures his heart. As Caitlin discovers the truth behind the woman's lies, she realizes Liam is trapped in a dangerous enchantment and the only way to break the spell is to uncover a secret Irish fairy tale that has remained hidden for hundreds of years. But when the petals of a white rose grown in winter start to fall, the legend is set in motion. And Caitlin must find a way to change the ending before the last petal falls.


In honor of The Selkie Enchantress cover release and the arrival of the most glorious flowers of spring, I'm sharing a very special Enchanted Rose Petal Spell with you. All magic should be respected and spells cast with care to bring only good and light into the world, never harm or hurt to anyone. Cast this spell to welcome joy and abundance into your life.

What you will need:
A white candle
A drop of dew from a white rose at midnight
A piece of white paper and a pink pen
A handful of rose petals of any color

The spell:
Under the light of a full moon, follow the call of the sea to the water's edge
Light a white candle and send all your worries from the day into the flame, watching it fill and release with a curl of smoke into the night
Gather a handful of rose petals and sprinkle a few into the sea. As the water carries them away, think about one thing you are thankful for
Think of something else you are thankful for as you bury a few petals in the earth
Say aloud a third thing you are thankful for as you scatter the remaining petals into the air, letting the wind carry them away 
With a pink pen, write one wish for joy and abundance to come into your life on a piece of white paper
When your wish is complete, fold it and hold it over the flame (careful not to burn yourself!) and then let the air or the sea carry it away
Close your eyes as you imagine how your life would change if your wish came true: how would you feel? what would you see? what would you smell? what would you hear? what would you taste? 
Seal the spell by drinking a drop of dew from a white rose picked at midnight and... BELIEVE
Blessed be

  2. OH SOPHIE!!! I love the cover the artist did such a beautiful job and I think the spell is absolutely wonderful, filled with love and light. Soon as my roses bloom (do you think I could use yellow roses and still maintain the integrity of the spell?) I would like to do this:D
    I cant wait until the book is released. I am already inspired by it. Blessed be!

    1. Thank you so much for commenting, Liza! Of course you can use yellow roses. Use any rose you want. This is just a suggestion as the legend of The Selkie Enchantress is based on a white rose. Hope your day is filled with magic! Blessed be.
