    But Who Would Read It?

    I love writing about witchcraft, but who would read my book? I mean, I'm sure there are a few people who would check it out but in all honesty.... I won't be saying much that hasn't already been said. Maybe some outlooks or personal opinions, maybe a couple of new techniques (or...
