"Hoodoo Herb and Root Magic" is available through Amazon in both paperback and hardcover.

The "Hoodoo Rootwork Correspondence Course" is only for students and is thus not sold to the public via other outlets.

Hello, Miss Cat,

I have your book "Hoodoo Herb and Root Magic," but i just saw another book by you advertised at Amazon.

It is called "The California Gardener's Book of Lists."

Is this a Lucky Mojo book?

Hi, coastwitch --

No, "The California Gardener's Book of Lists" is a gardening book i wrote for Taylor Trade Publishing a few years ago. We carry copies in the shop, but Lucky Mojo did not publish it.

So far, all that Lucky Mojo has published are these books:

"Hoodoo Herb and Root Magic: A Materia Magica of African-American Conjure and Traditional Formulary, Giving the Spiritual Uses of Natural Herbs, Root, Minerals, and Zoological Curios" by catherine yronwode in paperback and in hardcover

That is correct -- "Hoodoo Herb and Root Magic" is available through Amazon. The Correspondence Course book is sold as part of the course itself, and that is only to qualified purchasers who are students.

See details here:

All other books i have written can be found at Amazon, new or used. Just do a search on my name!

I would like to know is it possible to offer books published by Lucky Mojo as e-books on Amazon. This format may be easier to access all time for numerous reasons.

No, we are not doing e-books. Our books are printed on paper. The cost is very reasonable:

96 page books for $9.00

136 page books for $12.00

224 page books for $15.00

288 page books for 18.00

At those low, low prices, the items would hardly merit making available as an ebook.

I have written and placed an entire book online for free called "Hoodoo in Theory and Practice" http://luckymojo.com/hoodoo.html -- plus many other web sites filled with information, such as http://herbmagic.com and http://southern-spirits.com

As you begin to read the titles from Lucky Mojo Publishing, and have questions, each book title has their own Question and Answer thread under the category Books, Pamphlets, Instruction Manuals, and Grimoires in Hoodoo.

Best of luck to you.

Okay, so the last time someone inquired about this was in 2015, but I'm hoping some of the authors will understand and hear the plea of those of us who need to remain "in the closet" with our spiritual practices, and the situation will change within the next few years. . .

Can you please make e-book versions of some of these books? I know there are many other LM customers who would love to have access to these books online as well.

It's not a matter of price, but of privacy. There's only so much space I have in my apartment to hide my oils, jar spells, spiritual journals etc. And there are sooo many books LM sells that I would love, love, love to read. Please consider changing your policy on this, because it just does not seem fair. Plus, your book sales would increase.

Yes, "Hoodoo in Theory and Practice" is available online, but I've probably memorized it by now, because I have read it over and over for years (in addition to reading and re-reading pages and pages within the forum). I want to read "A Deck of Spells", and Deacon Millett's books, and many others offered.

Please, please, please make these books e-books. I would even pay double for that privilege. Or I'd purchase access that would expire within a certain timeframe, just for the chance to read what's within the pages. This is how much I really, really, want online access to the books.

Miss Cat,

I think I understand the security issue with downloading and the potential for the books to be posted online by someone for free. But, what I envision is the books posted on a page of your website in some encrypted/password-protected way wherein they are only able to be viewed on the computer in some kind of a reader. No printing, editing, etc. would be permissible. A customer could purchase a password that would then become invalid within a certain period of time after which his access would be denied. And, maybe there would be different prices for longer vs. shorter durations of access.

Well, the problem with that is still the same, brujaha123 -- under your paid-access plan, once a person purchases access, he or she can then make a digital copy and sell it or give it away.

Unauthorized selling of the books is almost a non-starter, but there are many sick-minded individuals, such as Frances Osborne, who are basely addicted to the attention they derive, or the sense of entitlement they feel, or the edgy criminality they can experience by setting up temporary web sites to distribute free copies of copyright protected texts and art.

There are forums where people ask for digital copies of very inexpensive books -- just to be able to rip them off. It is a kind of kleptomania, i think, because they make no profit from it, and in many cases they are not even particularly interested in the subject matter, but they get an adrenaline rush of some sort, especially when they can distribute free copies of books by well-known authors, acting as some kind of "in-the-know" distributor.

The problem for me is i cannot publish books under those terms.

My authors get a 10% royalty on each book printed. For example, a $9.00 book nets the author 90 cents per copy. Even if the book is on an obscure topic like folk magic, it may sell well enough to generate $1,000.00 per year for the author, every year, for life. If an author writes 12 such popular books, and works a full time job, then, when the author retires, he or she can rely on Social Security plus about $1,000.00 extra per month. This is not insignificant, and it is a factor that drives authors to write and produce work -- because as long as the material stays in print, royalties will continue to be paid.

I hope that all of you who like our books understand the gravity of the situation we are facing here. Anyone can write web pages as a hobby, but book publishing requires a team of collaborators, including not only the author and the publisher, but also artists, designers, typesetters, editors, proofreaders, printers, binders, shippers, distributors, and retailers. All of these people earn a flat fee for their work, every time they perform a job connected with handling the book -- except for the author, who receives royalties for the lifetime of the publication, each time the book is reprinted.

As a publisher, it is my duty (and i take that duty very seriously indeed) to provide royalties to my authors. Royalties are paid upon publication for each entire print run. If a book is ripped off digitally, demand drops off, and there is little incentive to keep it in print, hence i will have to drop it from my publishing list, which means that the author's royalties will be cut off. The author's legitimate source of income is decreased each time a book is distributed illegally.

I know that it may seem to you as if i am a big old meanie who is keeping you from enjoying your "in the closet" experience of folk magic, but my husband and i are operating under a different paradigm -- we are expending a great deal of our own unpaid energy and talent to preserving and popularizing folk magic, and we believe that the best way to do so, at the present time, is through the publication of small, inexpensive, densely-texted books with a (generally) $9.00 cover price for distribution worldwide.

Our books can be shipped in discreet packaging to a mail-drop box, if you request that service, and you can rent a small storage space where you can read them in privacy.

Be creative -- think outside your "closet."

Good luck to you!

A solution to brujaha's problem:

Purchase all of the Lucky Mojo, Missionary Independent, and YIPPIE books for your local library, have them shipped there with a note indicating that they are for shelving for the general public and then go there to read them!

Create a local lending library with friends, one of whom is OUT of that closet and allows folks to come and read at member-leisure. I did this in the Holy City of San Jose and it was a moderate success (only a few wound up coming to us through the library system; more came through connections from local Unitarian Universalist church and open Pagan coven).

Closets can incorporate public or membership zones of reference.

Ah - I understand now. Thank you both for the clarification. I guess I will just purchase, read and donate them to a library myself. I can read them at home, but just don't want to keep the books stored here afterward. If I have guests, I always try to be conscious of where all the hoodoo stuff is, so there is no awkwardness if discovered. Thank you again for taking the time to help me understand.

brujaha123 - just a quick note for you -

I have a collection of all of the above books and very little space left on bookshelves these days, so I understand part of the "storage issue" you mention above. But I have to say, they don't take up a great deal of space - I have 13 books lined up together here on my desk for easy grabbing and they fit in just about 4 inches across! You could hide all of them (well, maybe with the exception of Trolldom as a "full size" book) in a shoebox if you really had to. They really are worth having!

Doc Grey, i use those wonderful wooden "book boxes" to store my collections of pamphlets and small books. They look like this. You can buy them at Joanne's Fabrics, Michael's Crafts, and, of course, on Amazon and (for best bargains) on eBay:

You need ones that will fit a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" book in the INSIDE dimensions, not the outside dimensions.

By the way, all 4 of the 2016 books have now been added to our BAKER'S DOZEN special offer -- 12 of our 96-page $9.00 books of YOUR CHOICE for only $7.00 each, PLUS you get an added BONUS book of our choice. This is a bargain!

I was asked which format -- video, audio, or books -- is best or most desired for instructional material. This was my reply, slightly edited for use in the Lucky Mojo Forum.

To me as, both as a learner and as a teacher, the best choice between video, audio, or books depends on the type of data and the complexity, whether it is a mental pursuit, a hobby, requires hand-eye coordination, includes many numbers or numbered steps, whether there are non-hierarchically arrayed alternative methodologies or points of view, and how exacting my memory of adherence to the structure of the information must be for me to benefit from it. Basically --

* Video is great for history and for hand-eye instructions --

In a historical video i get the broad outline, memorize the visual images, remember key terms and names, and i can later look up any details i forget. Video is also good for hand-eye tasks such as playing a musical instrument, as it combines audio (what the music should sound like) with video (what your hands should be doing to produce the sound). Editing video to make updates or corrections is relatively time-consuming and expensive (especially if sets are involved or much time has passed between shoots), but that would only rarely have an impact on the video presentation of historical subjects that are fixed in time.

* Audio is great for interviews and opinions --

Audio holds attention and carries emotion just as well as video does, but i best appreciate it if the presentation is something i need not check again for accuracy or data-points, because audio is the least accessible in terms of check-backs. Audio is also special in that i can enjoy and absorb it while doing other tasks; for instance, i am listening to National Public Radio news while typing this message. Audio is, by the way, fairly easy to edit with updates or corrections, if needed or desired. It can also be enhanced with a written transcription more easily than video can, since the material is spoken, not shown. The Lucky Mojo Hoodoo Rootwork Hour radio show is not transcribed, but its chat-log is captured, and contains links to further web sites that explain the topics in more detail. Other broadcasts on the LMC Radio Network are also available for replay and may contain chat-logs as well.
See lmc-radio-network-f174.html for details

* Books are best for instructions --

Text works especially well if the material is organized with step-by-step protocols or with bullet-pointed lists of variant choices. Books can be checked again and again until the text is memorized, and if the material can be reduced to small blocks (like cooking recipes or folk magic spells), printed books are the most convenient memory-adjuncts, as they permit the the user to refer back to any page when needed. Text is also the most easily edited to make corrections and updates, if needed or desired. Adding illustrations to text can enhance its usefulness, if needed. Lucky Mojo Publishing distributes simple, inexpensive, fact-packed spell-books on hoodoo, spirituality, and world-wide folk magic under the imprints of the Lucky Mojo Curio Co. (LMCCo.), Missionary Independent Spiritual Church (MISC), and the Yronwode Institution for the Preservation and Popularization of Indigenous Ethnomagicology (YIPPIE).

These look interesting. I have pre-ordred all four.

I have most of Miss Cat's books and I also have Aura's earlier book on Spiritual Baths, so these look great. I love both Miss Aida and Aura Laforest for their always-helpful responses here in the Lucky Mojo Forum, and I congratulate them on bringing us their techniques in these new books.

Today i am setting up a forum thread for each of the new books of 2017, so folks can ask questions, place orders, and post reviews in the threads.

I want to thank all of our Lucky Mojo family and customers for supporting our efforts to teach hoodoo via the internet and via printed texts.
