Just a bit of where things are going. The writing, of course, but lots more than that. I'm starting to need to get more into spiritual pathworking. One of the paths I've begun (dabbled in before, but it keeps calling me to get more serious) is the workings of 'The Golden Dawn'. I have some books set aside from my first encounter with this path and I picked up "The Golden Dawn" as revealed by Israel Regardie last night. It is a path that is not for the dabbler. Lots of reasons why I'm heading here, mostly because where I used to be afraid of practicing magick, I'm beginning to wonder if it shouldn't be practiced, but with a high level of respect. I've been on vacation from my pagan roots for over a year now and I think I need to get back to it. I like the thought of ceremonial magick. I like the idea of really tapping into the energies of the universe to bring forth change. With all the chaos in the world around us, it's time for those of us who believe in magick to step up to the plate and begin to utilize what we know. It's going to take time for me to understand this path. As I said it's not for the dabbler. But I've been dabbling for seven years since becoming Pagan. It's time to get serious. Armchair Paganism was a nice break from fearful religion, but now it's time to choose to become a disciple of a path that keeps tapping me on the shoulder and saying, "It's time to join us. Don't be afraid."
If any of you belong to this path of The Golden Dawn, contact me privately at firstname.lastname@example.org I wold love to learn or discuss whatever information you offer.
I don't care if it's Hermetic or Thelemic...talk to me. ::grin::

~Blood's not the only thing being sucked around here!~
Released thru Dark Roast Press. And it's already in the top 10 at #8 on the DRP best seller list! I'm currently working on the sequel and have it about done. Just about another chapter to finish and then it's tweaking, polishing and then to be sent off to the editor! I'll be glad when this one is off my plate. The sequel was a PITA to write and I'm ready to move onto my other story lines. The first book to the "Harp & Sword Chronicles" is finished, but needs a final tweak. GemInI Souls' first book is off to the editor and awaiting corrections as I write this. I should get something from her in the next few weeks. I foresee approximately a two edit turn around and then off to be published! Cover is about done on that one as well.
Lots of stuff happening. Also, I have a Cafe Press shop. (See links at top of page)
I am now on the internet more in order to move forward and promote as well as immerse myself into other authors' work. It's a great ride, a lot to do, but fun!
See you all in the realms of fantasy!
