How do you #Voodoo? The Spellbindingly Fun Blog Party with @JaniceHorton

It’s Janice Horton’s Spellbindingly Fun Blog Party!

Congratulations to Janice as she celebrates the launch of her Halloween novella, How Do You Vodoo!

Loveless fashion model Nola Nichols thinks being beautiful is a curse; that is
until she is cursed and her looks begin to fade just a week before the most
important photo shoot of her career.

Nola rejects all rational explanation on what might be causing her lost looks and decides she has to find a way to get uncursed. This imaginative quest takes her from the Caribbean to Glasgow’s own City of the Dead. Along the way, she finds herself taking part in a rather unconventional funeral, involved in a voodoo ritual, reveals one or two unrests in her own past and falls madly in love with a doctor. Erm, that would be a witch doctor, right…?

How Do You Vodoo is out now ~ and it’s FREE today (26 October), what are you waiting for?

To honour the occasion, I’m taking part in the Spellbindingly Fun Blog Party so here goes…

Nicky’s Rocking-Ever-After Spell

Banish the worry, dry the tears, do away with your deepest fears
Welcome the love, the light, and the precious one
I’ve touched the stone and I will rock on

To banish the worry, dry the tears, do away with your deepest fears
Collect one worry stone on a new moon at midnight and put in the freezer until the next full moon
~Climb the highest Scottish mountain to collect thirteen dragon tears; put in the freezer next to the worry stone until the next full moon
~Write a list of your deepest fears and add them to the worry stone and dragon tears in the freezer (remember to use waterproof ink!)

To welcome the light, the love, the precious one
~Gather stardust and summon Northern lights on the next night of the next full moon
~Pick a single white rose by the light of the next full moon
~Collect a moonstone by the light of the next full moon


Remove the worry stone and dragon tears and list of your deepest fears from the freezer. Crush with the biggest hammer you can find while reciting the first line of the spell, and place resulting worry, tear and fear dust in cauldron.

Sprinkle the worry, tear and fear dust liberally with Northern lights and stardust. Stir well using the single white rose while reciting the second line of the spell.

Touch the moonstone and throw it high in the air, aiming to land in cauldron. Aim carefully. If you miss, your spell is void.

After (and only after) the moonstone has landed safely in the cauldron, recite the third and final line of the spell. You are now allowed to turn up the music. Congratulations: you will rock ever after!

  1. Ooooh I do like the idea of being able to Rock Forever! I do get a bit achy these days while I’m rocking out – so let me know if this one works Nicky? Great spell – super verse – magic ingredients and great fun !

    Rock on (forever) Nicky!!

    Janice xx

  2. What a fun spell! Really enjoyed it!

  3. How in keeping with your books’ theme, Nicky. Well done!

  4. Hi Nicky
    Glad I could make it to the book launch. I didn’t know what I should bring, but for some reason in the back of my mind I asked myself what is a party without any music, so I’ve decided to bring along a song along with me in which the singer sings about the voodoo that someone in doing to her.
    I know today is not Music Monday, but without much further delay, I liked to offer you this song.

  5. Excellent spell, Nicky – it’s great fun today!

  6. If you are going to be at the Romance Festival in November I am so going to enjoy meeting you. Rocking my way into old age! Thanks for this spell hope it works. Ill test it out later and put ‘Club Classics’ on the radio and see if the aged hip holds out!

    Brilliant spell Nicky i hope it works!! 🙂 iv had lots of fun today xox

  8. FABulous, Nicky! Not sure we should be letting you loose with a large hammer though! 😉 xx

    • Better a hammer than a knife, methinks! When I first started dating my OH, I would cook for him (obviously, way to a man’s heart and all that). It has become a standing joke that I would try to amputate my big toe at least once per evening by dropping the sharp kitchen knife. Impeccable aim, too. So ~ a hammer is quite safe! XX

  9. A great spell-hope lots of people try it!

  10. Rock on! I hope your spell works!
    I’m sorry this was in the wrong place. I don’t know how that happened. But, I’ve just read your spell again, and I love the way that you’ve made each ingredient mature to the right degree at the right moment!

    • Hi Jean, thank you SO much for coming back to repost your comment. You are awesome and thoroughly deserving of a successful “Rocking-Ever-After-Spell”! Rock on, my friend, and happy #voodoo!
