For My Patreon Supporters…and other updates

I managed to finish the first chapter of my Vanic novena book. This small pocket sized chapbook will consist of thirteen sections, each one offering a novena to a different member of the Vanir. I’ve uploaded that first chapter at my patreon blog and if you are a sponsor of my work, you can get a sneak peak of the entire thing. Enjoy, folks.

For readers of my main blog here, (y’all are awesome 🙂 ) this devotional will hopefully be available in November. I’m also working on a novena book to Freya but that has been pushed back a bit. Never fear though, it will get done. Slowly but surely, it will get done. 

In the meantime, scroll down and check out some of the beautiful submissions to the Hoenir Agon. I really appreciate folks taking the time to create these lovely prayers and poems for Him and for joining the agon. There’s still a week to go (more or less — i can’t believe August is almost over! School starts for me next week. Where did summer go?). 

A little head’s up to my hellenic and bacchic oriented readers: September’s agon will be dedicated to Persephone. 🙂 

Finally, Walking the Worlds is accepting submissions for its Winter 2017 issue. The topic is ‘text and tradition’ and the deadline is Dec. 1. Please see here for more information on submission guidelines. 

*whew* now I really do think that’s all…until tomorrow, folks.

Working on a novena book for the Vanir

My current project, which I’m hoping to have finished by Nov. 1, is a novena book for the Vanir. I’ve decided to post chapters as they’re finished, for my patrons over at my Patreon account. So if you are curious to see the work in progress, to see the book as it’s being written, head on over to this site, and consider becoming a sponsor. 🙂 

EDIT: the first installment has just been posted.

I’ve updated my Patreon Account

I put up  a new article tonight on my patreon account patron-only blog. This one is rather personal, and I talk a little bit about what it’s like having a learning disability, in my case, dyscalculia.

For those of you who enjoy my work and who would like to read more, consider becoming one of my patrons. Every dollar helps support the work and projects that I do.

(It would make a lovely Yule tide gift: donate to my blog in the name of your favorite Heathen or atheist-humanist blogger. *G*)

Reaching Out

There are 1,403 people subscribed to receive e-mail notifications for this blog. I have a huge number of followers on Twitter and a thousand or so friends on Facebook and wouldn’t even begin to know how to calculate the rest of the folks who keep up through other avenues.

Love or hate me, you at least find my work interesting enough to engage with it on that level – why not go a step further and contribute a dollar each month to keep it going. If even half of you pledged that much to my Patreon account think about what we, as a community, could accomplish for our Gods and Spirits. Because every cent I raise is going to get funneled right back into devotional or community-building projects such as my book on pilgrimage (i’m thinking about doing a class too), my calendar, my prayer card project, my two conferences that I put together last year and more.

I want to be doing more – not just to benefit our Holy Powers, though that is my primary concern, but also to support and patronize the various polytheist and pagan artists who make these projects possible and right now the money for all of that is coming out of pocket, which means that it’s not sustainable.

But if you were able to pledge a dollar to my Patreon account, or five or even twenty a month it could be.

Together we can make a difference.

Thank you for listening to this plea. Maybe it’s just my generation and upbringing but I find it really difficult to ask for help. This work is too important for pride however.

(and thank you to those who have already decided to offer their support! )

EDIT: wow. i was so tired this morning when I posted this, that I left my links and numbers out. Sorry folks! It’s been a hell of a week already and it’s only Monday!
