Update on Sybil Leek: Out of the Shadows

Some of you have noticed that Christine Jones' book Sybil Leek: Out of the Shadows was released prior to being fully proofed. The reason for this is that Christine is unwell, and was afraid that she would not survive to hold the book in her hands. So we elected to rush the book through, and she has been very effusive about how much it meant to her to see and hold the published book.

Now Christine is still unwell, though she is doing better, and we will be updating the book this week with a revised interior, proofed and corrected. This isn't the way we normally do things, but I am sure you will all understand the exception we made for this dear lady.

Pendraig Publishing at Pagan Pride

Yesterday we loaded up the car and drove north to Bakersfield, CA, to the Kern County Pagan Pride Day. Aside from giving me an oportunity to teach my Visceral Magick workshop and sign some books, it was a chance to hang out with friends and make some new ones.

As you can see from the photo, in addition to myself, on the left, we had Jo-Ann Mierzwicki, our layout artist (center) and author S. P. Hendrick (right), and lurking under the tree in the background is my camera-shy wife, Linda. The photo was taken by Jo-Ann's husband, author Tony Mierzwicki (Graeco-Egyptian Magick, Immanion Press). We had a great time, and were made very welcome by organizer and children's author Katie Olivares (ABC Book of Shadows and Orion on the Goddess, DVD).

Next Saturday we'll be doing the whole thing again, only this time we will be heading out to the Antelpe Valley Pagan Pride Day, in Palmdale, CA. If you are in the area, why not come and say hello!
