Wordsmithing Magic from the Crossroads

My Tarot Books

August 20, 2023:

The horrible experiences of this past Spring are finally giving way to a little bit of inner quiet (at least in the daytime) and personal renewal as my Summer wears on.

On August 1, I picked up my manuscript again for the first time in too many months. So much lost momentum, and finding the threads of where I left off has not been easy.

But now, twenty or so days into digging back in, I am starting to rediscover my jam, and am feeling more hopeful about my book seeing the light of day than I have in a very long time.

As you may have seen, I have also planned three workshops for this Fall because I am determined to be able to teach AND write, all while keeping a healthier balance in my life.

I have 2nd drafts for all the cards and most of the auxiliary material. My next steps will be to complete those extra chapters, and then find some good editing help.

Of course I am also going to have to decide how to go about publishing, but I am nowhere near there just yet. I will keep y’all posted! (Advice, rich relatives, and suggested kinfolk in the publishing industry are welcome, naturally).

Again, my enormous gratitude to everyone who has asked for this book and is still 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, students, 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!

it calls for communion.
