Here’s all the latest author news from Moon Books.

What we’ve been up to…

Julie Brett did a talk on the poet Amergin and how his poetry of invoking the land can help us to create ritual practices for deeper connection with our immediate environment. That was at the Australian Wiccan Conference in New South Wales.

Fiona Tinker contributed a chapter titled ‘A Case for Pagan Inclusion in Multi-faith Religious Education: Scotland’ to an academic book on Interfaith matters across Europe.

Dorothy L. Abrams said, “I led the Mabon Ritual last week 9/23. We spooned salt crystals on the left side of the scale to represent what we had finished with and released. Then we placed seeds on the right side of the scale to represent the things we call in to replace them. The Web PATH Center staffed its usual booth at the area Pagan Pride Fall Harvest Festival in Liverpool NY 9/16. We are known for our pagan yard sale and we also sell copies of Sacred Sex and Magick.”

Morgan Daimler finished up the manuscript for her next Fairy witchcraft book titled ‘Travelling the Fairy Path’ which should be out in 2018. She should be starting a project next month on the Moon Books blog where she will be posting a chapter a month from her in-progress book Pagan Portals Fairy Queens.

Jhenah Telyndru said, “After a very busy summer of travel and teaching, I have this going on: Ninefold Festival is presented by Sisterhood of Avalon and I am one of the keynote speakers. We were just featured in our local paper here in Ithaca, NY. www.ithaca.com/entertainment/ninefold-festival-welcomes-women-of-ithaca-to-paganism
