SEVERED TIES DEBUT AT CHAPTERS BOOK STORE
Many writers - including me - have the same dream with the book they wrote. They want the story published and on bookshelves.
I knew I made it as a writer when the reputable publisher Damnation Books signed me.
On 11/12/13 I accomplished what some would deem as a small miracle. My Teen, paranormal, magic and realism book Severed Ties, makes it print debut on the local interest section at Chapters Book Store. The store manager was happy to help give Severed Ties more exposure.
I gambled on myself. I did, and look what happened - I am now a
professional writer (Thanks Acquisitions Editor, Erin Lale and Editor, Barbara Legge) with a print book on the bookshelf at Chapters Book Store.
There is a thrill knowing someone will pick Severed Ties off the bookshelf and scan the back cover. If the story I wrote speaks directly to them they will read the book. As gratifying as this moment is there are struggles we all go through as writers to accomplish our dreams. Readers love to have a chance to meet and talk to their favorite Authors. I'm intimidated by the book signing process. Speaking in public is terrifying. Anything can come out of my mouth.
I am anxious that I'm not going to meet their expectations. I don't want to disappoint my readers giving the answers to their probing questions.
I am determined to keep things moving forward in my writing
career. It will take courage to step out of my comfort zone and make myself accessible. Somehow I will need to break out of solitary confinement and meet and talk to readers.
In the meantime, I am preparing two books At the Edge (There is support from the unseen to guide our lives on earth) and No Reins the extended edition (A heart-stopping story of attraction and self discovery) for publication from Eternal Press in Santa Rose CA. http://eternalpress.biz
The cat under my feet almost made me stumble. I grabbed the wall so I wouldn’t land face first on the living room floor, the dark figure skittering away out of the corner of my eye. Our cat Smoky had the habit of walking under my feet, but when I turned to find Smoky, he wasn’t running away as I’d seen; he was asleep on the couch. I hadn’t almost stepped on a cat, but I had most certainly almost stepped on something.
Dark shadows occasionally skulking at the feet of every member of my family, and visitors alike, became more and more common at the old house in Orrick, Missouri. Often when any of us approached the front door, the small dark figure in the periphery seemed to be a cat, but when one of us looked to make sure we weren’t letting the housecat outside, nothing was there.
Smoky saw this dark shadow cat, too. We occasionally saw him playing with something that wasn’t there.
One of the most famous cases of a spirit cat is the Demon Cat of Washington, D.C. For more that 100 years, during a presidential election, or national tragedy (sometimes these can be indistinguishable from one another), people walking through the lower reaches of the Capitol Building have reported seeing a black cat that would grow to the size of lion before disappearing in mid pounce.
Laura Hotalling of Kansas City, Missouri, had her own encounter with a ghost cat at the 1886 Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, in 2001. Hotalling and a group of college friends drove from Kansas City to Arkansas for spring break.
“I grew up an hour away from Eureka Springs, so I had been down to the Crescent Hotel several times,” she said. On one trip in high school, her then-boyfriend encountered something during a hotel ghost tour. “He had an experience and freaked out and still will not go down there to this day. That was fifteen years ago.” She told her college friends this, and they wanted to go.
The group went down for a weekend to look for ghosts. The group and Hotalling’s dog Little Bear, a thirty-pound mutt about the size of a cocker spaniel, but looked like a Labrador. “I’ve had her my entire life. I never really kept her on a leash; she was one of those type of dogs. She always looked after me.”
It was because of the dog that Hotalling knew she wasn’t dreaming.
As the group of college friends slept, the tags on Little Bear’s collar jingled, and she growled. “Which wasn’t like her. She was pretty easy going.” Hotalling looked toward the vanity where Little Bear was staring. “I saw a black cat sitting on the it,” she said. “I saw her in the mirror, but she wasn’t sitting on the vanity. It was on the other side of the mirror.”
She rubbed her eyes and took another look. “The cat walked out of the mirror, jumped on the seat of the vanity, and walked through the wall.” As the cat stepped out of the mirror, Little Bear started barking. “The dog went nuts and woke up everyone else. That’s when I realized I didn’t dream it.”
There’s a legend of an orange tabby ghost cat at the hotel, but Hotalling knew what she saw, a black cat that can walk through mirrors. Her friends, however, were asleep when Little Bear roused Hotalling.
“They didn’t see it. I saw it, so I was the one who was terrified,” she said. “I’ve been down there since, but I haven’t stayed there. Since this experience with the cat I decided I didn’t want to stay there again.”

The Necronomicon is a fictional book from the stories of horror writer H. P. Lovecraft. It was first mentioned in Lovecraft's 1924 short story "The Hound", written in 1922, though its purported author, the "Mad Arab" Abdul Alhazred, had been quoted a year earlier in Lovecraft's "The Nameless City". Among other things, the work contains an account of the Old Ones, their history, and the means for summoning them.
Other authors such as August Derleth and Clark Ashton Smith also cited it in their works; Lovecraft approved, believing such common allusions built up "a background of evil verisimilitude." Many readers have believed it to be a real work, with booksellers and librarians receiving many requests for it; pranksters have listed it in rare book catalogues, and a student smuggled a card for it into the Yale University Library's card catalog.
This a three film adoptation that is the mythos of HP Lovecraft
The fictitious black-magic grimoire, the idea of which was created by the American occult and horro-fiction writer, H.P. Lovecraft (1890-1937). Lovecraft wrote about the book in his fiction and acquired a cult followers who believed that it actually exists and that is based, at least in part, on fact.
The Necronomicon was born of Lovecraft's fertile imagination in his 1936 essay, "A History of The Necronomicon."
The fantasy captured the imagination of some of Lovecraft's fans, and for years a belief persisted that a real grimoire titled The Necronomicon existed. Book-sellers received request for it. As the late 1980's, at least two versions of the "real" Necronomicon had been published.
The Encyclopedia Of Witches and Witchcraft by Rosemary Ellen Guiley
Necromancy - divination by raising the spirits of the dead, one of the claimed Black Arts practised by witches and magicians. The classic case of necromancy is the Witch of Endor, described in the Bible (1 Samuel 28), who summoned the spirit of Samuel in the presence of Saul. The Biblical episode was widely accepted as irrefutable evidence of the existence if Witchcraft. The idea behind necromancy was that the dead could see the future and could be conjured into describing it.
It is unlike other forms of divination in that it tools are not part of the world around us, like clouds or rods or animals. It goes back to legends of descent of the Underworld and visits from the dead, such as recorded in Shakespeare's play Hamlet, but in its trappings and rituals it is more a branch of Black Magic than of regular divination, which relies on the person of the diviner being in tune with the phenomena he or she is assessing. Nine days of morbid and grisly preparation are required in which the magician dresses in the burial clothes of corpses and recites the funeral service over to himself and his assistants. At midnight or dawn, the grave is opened and the corpse conjured to come out alive. In accounts of such events, the corpse is often made to speak through the mouth of one of the assistants.

The Cross of Light
The Cross of Light is very effective exercise for strengthening the aura and focusing energy. It is traditionally performed prior to all ritual work, particularly the tracing of a magic circle.
1. Stand facing east and imagine a brilliant white light above you. Raise your left hand above your head and draw the light down to your forehead, saying:
"Thine, O Lady and Lord..."
2. Feel the light fill your head and draw it down in a line through your body toward your feet, saying:
"Is the Kingdom..."
3. Feel the light fill your body and follow your hand as you bring it to your shoulder, saying:
4. Draw the line of light straight across to your left shoulder, saying:
"And the Glory..."
5. Now cup your hands to your heart, feeling the great cross of light radiating through you, and say:
Forever. Blessed it Be."
To raise elemental energy for magical workings.
Invocation of the Elements
Air, Fire, Water, Earth
Elements of Astral birth,
I call you now; attend to me!
In the circle, rightly cast,
Safe from psychic curse or blast,
I call you now; attend to me!
From cave and desert, sea and hill,
By wand, blade, cup and pentacle,
I call you now; attend to me!
This is my will, so mote it be!
The Blessing Chant can be said at the beginning of any type of ritual as a general Invocation.
The Blessing Chant
May the powers of The One,
the source of all creation;
all-pervasive, omnipotent, eternal;
may the Goddess,
the Lady of the Moon;
and the God,
Horned Hunter of the Sun;
may the powers of the Spirits of the Stones,
rulers of the elemental realms;
may the powers of the stars above and the earth below,
bless this place, and this time, and who I am with you.
Invocation - you are kindly inviting the higher powers to come forth, join and bless you at anytime and anywhere.
Britain BC: Life in Britain and Ireland Before the Roman Traditionally, British history has been regarded as starting with the Roman Conquest. Yet this is to ignore half a million years of prehistory that still exert a profound influence on British and Irish life today. In Britain BC, Francis Pryor sets the record straight. Aided in recent years by aerial photography and coastal erosion (which has helped expose such sites as Seahenge), and by advances in scientific techniques such as radiocarbon dating and wood analysis, archaeologists have discovered compelling evidence for a much more sophisticated life among the Ancient Britons than has been previously supposed. Far from being woad-painted barbarians, the earliest inhabitants of the British Isles had developed their own religions, laws, crafts, arts, trade systems, farms, and priesthood long before the Romans' brief occupation. Examining sites from the great ceremonial landscapes of Stonehenge, Avebury, and the Bend of the Boyne to small domestic settlements, and objects from precious ritual offerings to the tiny fragments of flint discarded by toolmakers, Francis Pryor, one of our leading archaeologists, has created a remarkable portrait of the life of our ancestors, in all its variety and complexity. His authoritative and radical re-examination of Britain and Ireland before the coming of the Romans makes us look afresh at the whole story of our islands.
An authoritative and radical rethinking of the history of Ancient Britain and Ancient Ireland, based on remarkable new archaeological finds.
British history is traditionally regarded as having started with the Roman Conquest. But this is to ignore half a million years of prehistory that still exert a profound influence. Here Francis Pryor examines the great ceremonial landscapes of Ancient Britain and Ireland -- Stonehenge, Seahenge, Avebury and the Bend of the Boyne -- as well as the discarded artefacts of day-to-day life, to create an astonishing portrait of our ancestors.
This major re-revaluation of pre-Roman Britain, made possible in part by aerial photography and coastal erosion, reveals a much more sophisticated life in Ancient Britain and Ireland than has previously been supposed.
Loyd Auerbach talks about the paranormal with the ladies of The View.
The New Moon in Virgo will be a breath of fresh air that's charged with powerful backing from Saturn, Jupiter and Pluto.
The New Moon brings fresh opportunities and an expansion of present prosperity and luck. Your chosen course of action for future accomplishments become increasingly bright and clear. Good forces end disagreements. Positive action you take brings positive results.
When the Moon is new, appearing as a crescent in the sky with its curve to the right, light a silver or white candle. Place a hand-mirror in front of the candle and dap the four corners of the mirror with vinegar. Stand outside and reflect the new moon in the mirror, or hold the mirror up to reflect the new moon in the mirror or hold the mirror up to reflect the flame. Then say:
"New Moon, growing moon, make (person's name) realize soon, Harm sent and misery cursed, is returned and being reversed."
The harm this person has caused you will increasingly return to them while the new moon grows to full moon.
*** Most Witches cast good spells, but it may be right to cast a spell on one who needs to be checked for continually doing wrong. You can turn your magic around to counteract one who wishes to do harm.
