Now that Pestlework is making its’ way into the market and I’ve had a couple of weeks to rest, it’s time to move on to my next project. I’ve been shuffling things around as needed to publish new material, so I’ve got some options.
The Sisters Grimmoire: Vol. II
The much-anticipated followup to The Sisters Grimmoire (2015), featuring spells based on the collected works of Andrew Lang. The new volume is set to feature close to 100 original spells based on fairy tales and folklore from around the world.

The Grovedaughter’s Garden
A book of herbal magic and practical advice for witches with an affinity for growing things. The subjects covered will include magical workings to be done in and around the garden, as well as with the harvested plants, and useful information on simple container gardening for witches without yards or large spaces for planting.
Status: Research & Development
The Grovedaughter’s Year
A largely esoteric project detailing the holidays, traditions, rituals, and idiosyncrasies of my personal practice. This would likely be a short ebook, if published, and I doubt it would garner a lot of interest except from those who follow my blog.
Short Horror Fiction
A number of prompts are stashed away in a folder, awaiting attention. I have a dozen or so waiting to be fleshed out, and I’m hoping to submit more works for possible podcast or magazine publication sometime next year. I’m also hoping to eventually publish a short anthology at some point, when I have a fair number of stories ready. At this point, it’s a series of writing exercises, but some of them (such as “Torso”) have managed to garner the attention of the horror community.

A Town Called Abberline
My perennial long fiction “witch village” project, forever halfway-shelved and forever having little bits added to it when inspiration strikes. I have a ton of world-building set down for this project, and a number of plotlines sketched out. It’s just a matter of actually sitting down and WRITING the stories.
So as you can see, I’ve got my work cut out for me!
What I want to know is what you guys think. Which projects interest you the most? Which ones would you like to see? Which ones do you think should be shelved?
Let me know! 🙂
