New Gig: History Witch

Out of the ivory tower and into the streets! Or at least the blogosphere. I’m proud to unveil my latest gig, which sprang directly from the interest generated by Rook Chant: I am now the History Witch for the Witches & Pagans site.

How I Did It

I am guest blogging over at Mr B’s on how I wrote It’s a Curse: Drunk on the Moon, Vol 7. A careful dissertation of the creative process or a wild pack of lies? You be the judge. I had fun writing this story, I had fun writing about writing about this story — should…

Converting Galway

Thanks to Michael, there’s a photo of me giving my talk at the Moore Institute yesterday. There was quite a good turnout! I suspect it was the sandwiches. The audience seemed to be receptive and laughed in the right places, always a good sign.I will put the talk on line when I get a moment….

Carrot & Stick

I have a favor to ask of you: it’s not really much and this time of year, you might be spending a lot of time in the particular location anyway. I have a birthday wish. I realise it’s a few weeks away yet, but you need some preparation time. The good news is that it…
