From Casa Monteraine… Revelations ~ Who’s telling the truth?

Here’s today’s video tarot reading taped at our Arizona homestead, Casa Monteraine.  It was already heating up when I taped this video early this morning.  We’re heading towards temps of 117 degrees… stay cool out there, stay safe!

Choose Your Goddess

The following information is an excerpt from my book, “The Spiritual Feminist”, which was written to connect us to the goddess, as well as to embrace matriarchal divinity and our journey through it as women of the goddess. This book is a celebration of feminine divinity, and our feminine experience in life. You will find links to 45 goddesses from around the world. Learn about them, embrace them, and allow their energy to change your life.

First Time Authors ~ Tips for Marketing Your Book

Writing a book is the easy part, believe me.  The real grind will begin six to eight weeks before your book’s release date and continue for four to six weeks after your book has been released.  New authors may not realize that marketing your book is just as much hard work as writing it was, and that this process is an absolute vital necessity in order to sell your book successfully.

For some of the books I’ve written in the past eleven years, I’ve been fortunate to work with incredible publishing/marketing companies and publicists.  If you have a good editor and publicist, embrace them. They run a gauntlet for you. They are priceless.

For other books, I’ve run the independent race and did everything myself.  It is daunting, but it’s not impossible… remember that.  There are so many tips for marketing your book in order to reach as many readers as possible, and isn’t this why we write?  Here’s some teasers to a terrific article full of helpful information and tips.  

Happy publishing!

Rituals ~ Wiccaning

A wiccaning is a ritual to present a child before the Goddess. You might say that it is an initiation into life, much like an initiation into witchcraft. The child is presented before divinity, blessed with the four elements and introduced to the powers that be; that these powers may recognize this child, acknowledge the child’s humanity and connection to the ancestors, and protect this child on his/her journey through life.

Danu’s Irish Herb Garden

I absolutely love this lady and her videos.  You can follow her on Youtube to visit her quaint and cozy Irish cottage and explore her magical herb gardens… Love, love, love this lady! Not only is she knowledgeable, her videos are very relaxing to watch… her quiet calm voice, her cozy Irish cottage, her wild unruly gardens filled with all kinds of magical things, her pets who are often wandering through the background. Her videos almost have an ASMR quality about them… and besides that, you Learn Stuff.
