Naming the Goddess to be released soon

Naming the Goddess is one of two anthologies due to be released by Moon Books that I have contributed towards.   Carol Christ, author  of Rebirth of the Goddess" who also leaders pilgrimages to Crete, described Naming the Goddess as "a delightful read, answering questions and raising them, from a variety of perspectives, all grounded in personal experiences, often in years of seeking and finding the Goddess and Goddesses. There is something here for everyone, for those new to the Goddess and for those who know Her."
She further goes on to say that one of the aspects of this book she enjoyed was the "reflections with which the book begins and appreciated the catalogue of Goddesses written by different people who understood the different Goddesses from their different standpoints."

Pre-orders for second edition of "Dancing the Sacred Wheel" now being taken

I am delighted to announce that the second edition of Dancing the Sacred Wheel: A Journey through the Southern Sabbats is on verge of being available and pending a June 2014 release.  As such, pre-orders are now being taken at a discounted rate through Paypal (Australian customers only) for copies will be autographed by the author.

Dancing the Sacred Wheel was originally released in November 2012 and while there many books available on the Sabbats, the eight sacred festivals that are central to modern paganism, most are written from the Northern Hemisphere point of view (where most of the sabbat associated folklore and mythology originated). Dancing the Sacred Wheel is unique in that it is specifically written from the Southern Hemispheric perspective by someone who actually lives in the Southern Hemisphere and who has been following a Pagan path for over 20 years.

Devotional to the Morrighan now available

Shapeshifting triune daughter of the
Great Ernmas
Fading in and out of dreams with bloody desires and lust
Morrigu of the ancient land, whom
the Dagda loved
Prophesising heroes and battles that would
be lost.*
It is always exciting when a new anthology that I have contributed towards is released and By Blood, Bone, and Blade: A Tribute to the Morrigan (edited by Nicole Bonvisuto and Bibliotheca Alexandrina) is no exception.
The Morrig[h]an was referred to by many titles including "Phantom Queen", "Night Hag", "Mistress of Battles" and "the Great Raven".   To the Irish she was both the benevolent mother and righteous wrath, the creative destruction and destructive creation.  She inspired, perplexed and even maddened those who came across her.
