Spell to Sell a Book

What you need:
1 yellow taper candle (pink will do to but yellow is best)
The pen you will use to write anything on the contents of the envelope or to address the envelope

When to do it:
During the waxing moon (from new moon to first quarter) 

What you do:
Using the pen, inscribe the name of your book with an arrow on each side of it pointing to it into the candle (up and down). Figure out your lucky book number. To do this, take the number of pages in your book and add the digits together (for example, if your book had 256 pages you would add 2+5+6). The outcome is your lucky book number. Light the candle and chant the following as many times as your lucky book number (example, if your lucky book number is 12 then you would chant it 12 times). 

"My book, ___name of book___, is the one I'm sending off I've worked and slaved over it, please let my talent be enough. Please let the publisher read it and love it By the power of this candle I have lit So Mote It Be!"

Now drop a pinch of the cinnamon into the flame of the candle using your right hand and drop a pinch of the basil into the flame with your left (do both these movements in one quick movement). Hold your manuscript above the flame (careful not to burn it) and let it absorb the energy. When you are sure it is empowered, put the manuscript (and anything else you are sending with it) into the envelope you are going to send it off in, seal it, address and stamp it. Blow or snuff out the candle. You should send your manuscript off as soon as possible.
