Defense Against The Dark Arts

If you talk the talk, you should walk the walk,* right?

Or, in my case, I draw upon my experiences as a shaman when I write about decent, fairly ordinary teens who clash with evil. This translation of my work into fiction is especially evident in Spell Fire, Book 3, The Teen Wytche Saga.

I will present "Defense Against The Dark Arts" at the Goddess Spirit Rising International Goddess Conference on Friday 13, 2019 at the American Jewish University Brandeis-Bardin Campus in Simi Valley, California. For more information or to register, please visit

For a limited time, you can read the Teen Wytche Saga for free with a Kindle Unlimited subscription, or purchase on Amazon. Ariella Moon books on Amazon

*The "walk the walk" theory does not apply to writers of suspense, thrillers, mysteries, and other literary genres that involve murder or other serious crimes!

Reading is magical!

Ariella Moon: Featured Speaker at the Palm Springs Writers Guild

Writers Helping Writers
Ariella Moon and Carol Mann
Address the Palm Springs Writers Guild

Ariella Moon at the Palm Springs Writers Guild
May 2019

Many writers shy away from public speaking, Not me. Last Saturday before the Palm Springs Writers Guild, I gave my first ever PowerPoint presentation. (Do not judge.) In the spirit of Writers Helping Writers, my topic was "Your Author's Voice: The Foundation to Building Your Brand."

Fellow presenter Carol Mann gave a wonderful and informative talk on "Writing, Art, and Collaboration," using illustrations from her beautiful book, All Ways A Woman. AMAZON

My thanks to Mark Anderson of AquaZebra for allowing me to share sharing his photos.

Give Yourself a Post-Valentine Gift

Valentine's Day is fraught with pressure: the pressure to find Ms or Mr Right, or to discover the right romantic gift, or to be happy if none of the above materialize.

We have all been there. Note the tremendous popularity of romance novels and the Hallmark channel.

3 Ways to Beat the Valentine Day Blues

1. Show Yourself Some Love

Treat yourself to a massage, pedicure, or a facial. If you can't afford to go to a spa, try one of these Homemade Facial Recipes from Reader's Digest.

2. Brighten Your Home

Clean and Declutter. The work will keep your mind off your lack of Significant Other, and when you finish, your home will feel lighter and brighter. Guaranteed mood elevator.

3. Make Someone's Day

Perform random acts of kindness. Compliment a stranger. Write a gratitude letter to a relative or friend. Visit a shut-in. Make cookies and distribute them to your neighbors.

After you have tried all of the above, escape into a movie or novel. You've earned it!

Kindle Countdown 99 Cents Sale!

If you like sweet, paranormal, Young Adult romances, then consider Spell Struck, Book 2, The Teen Wytche Saga.

Read for free with Kindle Unlimited, or purchase the kindle ebook for 99 cents during February 15-21, 2019.

Escape the Cold With This Kindle Countdown!

Today is National Popcorn Day!

Snow dusts the mountains surrounding my southern California home, creating the perfect environment for settling in with a good book and a bowl of freshly popped popcorn. 

Are you caught up on the Hallmark channel movies? Me, too! You can still enjoy a satisfying, sweet, romance story. The Teen Wytche Saga transports you back to high school and the roller coaster world of secret crushes, friend troubles, and difficult choices.

And magic. 

For a limited time, you can buy the Kindle version of SPELL CHECK: Book 1, The Teen Wytche Saga for 99 cents. Click here, or read the entire Teen Wytche Saga on Kindle Unlimited.

Don't forget the popcorn!
