I’m super excited about a few things that will be coming to this site and to me as an author in the social media milieu.
Article: Magick Online, A New Perspective on an Old Tradition
(This article first appeared on WitchVox, April 3, 2005) The world of online magick is just about 20 years old, having begun in the ‘good old days’ of Compuserve, when BBSs were the primary mode of transmitting information. Rituals were held online as early as 1985, with participants have reported highly successful results, akin to […]
Article: Herbal Vinegars: A Healthy & Tasty Addition to Your Diet
Vinegar infused with a variety of herbs makes a wonderful addition to your health regime. The word vinegar comes from the French vin aigre, which means “sour wine.” When air is exposed to fermented liquid, bacterial activity occurs and the result is acetic acid or sour vinegar. These are different from culinary vinegar in that […]
How to Write a Non-fiction Book Proposal
(That may be the longest title I’ve ever written for a blog post.) If you want to place your book with traditional publishers you do not just send them your manuscript. While there is a tiny possibility they will accept it directly, it is nearly impossible. Sending it directly subjects you to a high likelihood […]
Last year, in the light of the moon peering through the towering pines behind my house, I offered myself up to Deity in a ritual I have done every year since 1980. I pledged myself then, and renew that vow in recognition of Their regard of, and for, me. In my spiritual tradition, this is […]
The Wheel Podcast
A lovely conversation I had with Hazel and Jenny, of Kent, UK, just broadcast. I think you’ll enjoy listening. Spoke 112 of The Wheel.
My first podcast!
A few weeks ago I sat down with the effervescent and wise Patti Negri, The Witch of Hollywood, for her podcast, The Witching Hour. It was my first time (although I’d done a couple of radio interviews waaaaay back when The Virtual Pagan published). It was a ton of fun, and I think we shared […]
No Dichotomy Needed: Ancient & Modern
A thing I’ve learned over the years is that I learned a lot about writing because I was an early reader who fell into books like a fish into the ocean. While I did have spelling lessons, I can’t recall a single extended grammar lesson and have never — as an example — diagrammed a […]
July is a tricky month
July is a tricky month. It feels like the height of summer, and certainly the high temperatures signal that directly. When I was much younger I loved the sun and could lie in its golden rays for hours, rolling over every half hour to make sure I tanned the same color on all sides.As ancient […]
I’m super excited to tell you that I am one of many fantastic presenters at this year’s LlewellynCon! With forty presenters over ten days, and it’s FREE. You can’t beat that, folks. There are a number of talks that look particularly interesting — Duriel’s Listening to Anger and Guilt, Mortellus’ Deities of Death, Bowmani’s Sweep […]
