Wordsmithing Magic from the Crossroads

My Tarot Books

October 30, 2022:

Adobe stock blue writing quill that turns into flying birdsIt has taken longer than I thought (doesn’t everything?!) but I am now beginning the process of content editing. I have a trusty team of wise souls who are reading through a sampling of what I’ve written in order to troubleshoot “big picture” stuff. Like whether what I’ve got works, or where it doesn’t.

This is different from close editing, which is where someone goes through and looks for grammatical problems, typos, misspellings, etc. That comes later.

I gotta tell you, even though each of my volunteer editors is dear to me in every way, having someone see my baby for the first time is scary as hell, especially since the point is to critique it. I’ve written for plenty of tough old professional editors before, but this is really from my heart, and I am pretty surprised at how tender I feel about it.

But I am all in now, and so here we go. Thanks for stopping by. Measurable progress is finally happening.

And again, my enormous gratitude to everyone who has asked for this book and is cheering me on!


The Backstory

Once upon a time …

When I started my blog in 2003, I wanted to initiate conversations on a wide-ranging platform of magical topics. But I also knew that I would focus on my true love, the Tarot.

So I began pulling one card every Monday morning, and then writing about it, for whoever happened across my site. No other layout cards, just a card a week.

Thus, my Card of the Week began. I’ve now written over 1,000 of these weekly analyses.

Over the years, my clients, site visitors, colleagues, and friends finally prevailed upon me to consolidate all my posts into an organized reference book.

I will continue to post one card a week, but no longer keep an ongoing archive, since that’s what the book will be. Makes sense, right?

And after that? Yes, I have already drawn up the outline for another Tarot book that I long to share with you.

Stay tuned for lots of news and updates along the way!
