Jan. 1 2017 – Saying Goodbye to 2016

I decided to say goodbye to 2016 in the best way I knew how – by burning it in effigy. (Trigger warnings for open flame.)

And because we all could use a fresh start for the new year, I threw in a stick of cleansing incense. Watch for the 3-2-1 countdown and blow to activate!

Happy New Year, everyone!

Dec. 22, 2016 – Yule Altar

This year’s Yule altar, with Mistletoe and Holly candle and shots of white wine for my four patrons. We went very simple this year, since it’s going to be a bit of a slim holiday, thanks to financial constraints. The altar was lit up while I watched “Hogfather” and wrapped presents.

Happy Holidays, everyone! May the season and the new year bring you safety and all the blessings you deserve.

For the witch on your list this holiday season, check out my books on Amazon.

Update – Grovedaughter Witchery

GOOD NEWS, EVERYONE! THE BOOK IS FINISHED!

It still needs editing and finishing work, and I’ve already sent it to my first beta reader. I’ll be calling on a few others in the days to come, since many eyes will catch more mistakes and hopefully have some suggestions for fixing any awkward passages.

I still expect that publishing will happen sometime in January, as I need to upload a finalized copy to CreateSpace for printing, and reformat a separate copy for Kindle Direct Publishing. I’ll be sure to keep everyone updated on the process and I’ll post the Amazon links the very minute they’re up!

Thanks for all your support so far! 🙂

Dec. 15, 2016 – A Tribute to Sebastian (R.I.P.)

Sebastian
His Lordship, The Baron McFoozlebuns
First of His Name
Terror of Mice
Loyal Companion
Beloved Familiar
1997-2016

It is with a heavy heart this day that I announce the passage of our dear friend Sebastian into the Summerlands. Sebastian passed peacefully from the world this afternoon, in the arms of loved ones at the venerable age of nineteen.

Brought into the family as a companion for my grandparents, Sebastian came to my mother’s household upon their passing, and was lovingly dubbed The Ancestral Cat. His grumpy demeanor persisted for some years, before softening into a sincere, if grudging, affection for his human servants.

In his later years, he became my constant companion and a loyal familiar. Be it altar lighting, herbwork, or candlemaking, if there was witchwork to be had, Sebastian would be in attendance, seated regally nearby and awaiting his chance to put in a nose or a paw in support.

Though his watch be over and the mantle is passed, the candles yet burn bright in his memory. We do not forget.

May his name be forever blessed, and may he be remembered with greatest fondness in the annals of catkind.

Good journey, old friend. May the road rise up to meet you.

Slán abhaile.

UPDATE – Grovedaughter Witchery

206 PAGES!!!! (Wow, I hit that goal and blew right past it, didn’t I.)
That’s 197 pages in practical print, since the beginning of the book skips a few for the title page, legalese, and Table of Contents. I might hit 200 practical with a couple of last-minute additions, but at this point, I’m really looking to finish adding the material I set down in my original plan.

I’m three days off of the month mark and just shy of 41,000 words. So…it’s very nearly a NaNoWriMo success, if you pretend I started it at the beginning of the month instead of halfway through. Either way, a 200-page book in under a month is….pretty damn astounding, really.

In between bouts of writing, I’ve been wrangling the details on CreateSpace to get everything ready with the cover, ISBN, and distribution. Most of the rest I can’t finish until I upload the completed manuscript. And then I have to rework the formatting AGAIN for Kindle Direct Publishing. Headache imminent….

Still, I’m very proud of my bookbaby and I hope that all of you will love it as much as I do.
