1.0 out of 5 stars Misleading the public yet again!, March 2, 2012
This review is from: Guidebook For The New Witch (Paperback)
This book is the same as the first version, and as I have both books in digital form - the following is from them.

From GUIDEBOOK FOR THE NEW WITCH (Volume 2):

"Smudging is a ritual way to cleanse a person, place or an object of negative energies, spirits or outside unwanted influences."

From the first book MAGICK FOR THE NEW WITCH & WICCAN:

"Smudging is a ritual way to cleanse a person, place or an object of negative energies, spirits or outside unwanted influences."

This is just a small example. What is even worse is the book seems to be full of information you can find for free online! So don't waste your money - although Amazon do offer a returns policy on Kindle books, I seriously would not bother.

Lady Raven Avalon has recently removed the name she used, Isadora Cole, as she claimed a connection with the late Donna Cole which was not only misleading but proved to be totally false. She continues to mislead the public with this and her other works, claiming she is a High Priestess of the Avebury based Blackraven Coven - contacts in the area have never heard of her or them - another attempt to mislead the public in to thinking she is a real person, writing from her experience - which by the way, changes from 30 years in the original publication (removed from Lulu because of copyright issues) to 50 years in this edition.

Why Amazon allow such blatant scam on their site is questionable.

Further more, to yet again mislead the public, the person behind this, created several Amazon profiles, in a vain attempt to convince the public that she did indeed have supporters. On such profile lead back to one Siobhan Whelan, who under her pen name of Rochelle Moore published yet another book that was removed for plagiarism, by the publisher Andborough.com.

One other profile, 'witchy nexus of course!' was using the name of a person Whelan under her guise of Lady Raven Avalon, has also attacked on Facebook - Witchy Steph. This has now been challenged by Witchy Steph, as it should.

My last word on this book is simple - it's misleading.

Caveat Emptor!

Has this book sold any copies at all?

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 3, 2012 10:13:50 AM PST
I bought one; this was when it was listed as Volume 2 and I quite naturally thought it was the second instalment!

It's not - besides some formatting it's exactly the same - but somehow Raven Avalons experience increases from 30 years to 50 years! A typo? The book is full of them...

I don' think that typos are the only thing it's full of.

You've been asked by me and everyone else you've accused of harassment and bullying to prove it. Taking the review down means only one thing - like the other fakey-fake accounts you've used, and I'm specifically thinking of Hawksquill here - who spoke about your theft here http://passmethewings.wordpress.com/2012/03/06/amazon-review-and-comments/, Amazon are investigating you. So quit your whining - the "public" have already decided. And here's more proof of your lies and theft - http://sehnga.blogspot.ie/2011/08/registration-required.html and lest I forget -

"The Gossip Witch" shared a link via Lady Raven Avalon - Author.

Quote from below:

"pagangossipwitch.wordpress.com is no longer available."

That's never been our URL; it was a 'look-a-like' blog used by the person who calls herself Lady Ravin Babalon to bash good people under yet another sock account.

WE the REAL Gossip Witches are still here ready to bring you the latest hot gossip in the World of Witchyness.

Don't keep trying to get into a battle of wits, Siobhain. You always come unarmed.

Dear Librarian,

Please provide proof where I have written to you via Amazon (or anywhere else come to that ).

Please provide proof where I have harassed you or the author on Amazon or elsewhere.

Please provide proof where I have stalked you or the author on Amazon or elsewhere.

Please provide proof where I have asked you to change you review on Amazon or elsewhere.

Please provide proof where I have written a book that I am trying to sell, on Amazon or elsewhere.

If you bought and enjoyed the book you have as much right, as I have to say how you feel about it, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

Oh and by the way Libel is a crime here in the UK and in Eire the last time I looked, and as far as I am aware it is also a crime in the USA.
