The books have arrived. I have three boxes of “Embracing Willendorf” that constitute the pre-publication sales (thanks to all who did that–it’s really helpful). I have a bunch of labels and a couple of good pens and will spend the afternoon inscribing books and preparing them for shipping.
A lovely way to spend a potentially rainy Appalachian afternoon.
The book party was announced a couple of weeks ago. My friends at Asheville Raven and Crone are hosting a celebration of the new book on Saturday, May 27 at 6PM. I’ll talk a little about why I wrote this book and read some of the jucier parts. And sign the books that folks buy. Usual stuff. I’m planning to bring a rather nice bottle of champagne, with which to toast Absent Friends.
I’m off next week to celebrate Beltane a little more. A gaggle of Mother Gravians are going up 81 to middle Virginia for Blue Ridge Beltane. You can click on the romantic Hares below to go to the Event Page on Facebook–
I’m sending in class proposals for Wisteria’s Midsummer event and will let you know if they decide to bring me in for that. Camping in the heat again–I didn’t do well at Pagan Spirit Gathering last year. But we’ll see how I do when I have less to get done and it isn’t a nine day event.
Many more festivals and appearances coming up plus more writing. Ritual, writing and renewal–I am counting on these things to see me into the depths of this Tower Time and to keep me relatively sane.
Per ardua ad terra! (And possibly more later.)
