I am currently compiling a devotional anthology to Charon, the Ferryman of souls. This book will be published through Bibliotheca Alexandrina.
I've had this on the back burner for about a year now, maybe even a little more and I'm finally feeling moved to make it my current 'to-do' project. This is part of an ongoing series of things that I promised to do in part to commemorate my adopted mom's death: I decided I would do something devotional for each of the Deities that she honored. While she was a devout Loki and Sigyn's woman, she had an affinity for Charon and was very, very moved by His work. I decided in honor of that, to do this devotional for Him.
I"m seeking poetry, articles, black and white illustrations, prayers, recipes, etc. I particular need articles.
All contributors will receive a copy of the finished product as payment. All proceeds go to a charity of Neos Alexandria's choice.
I would like to have this finished by Dec. 1 of this year. If you have any material that you would like to submit, please contact me at krasskova at gmail.com.
Also, please feel free to pass this on to anyone whom you think might be interested.
I just received word that Asphodel Press has put out its first Hela devotional. This particular book has been in the works (as far as I know) for several years now and I am delighted that it's finally available. I had the privilege of reading a couple of the prayers and two of the articles for their respective authors a couple of years ago and if that's any indication by which to go, this devotional promises to be both powerful and beautiful. (I'm waiting for my copies to arrive in the mail!). Check it out, it's called "Wholly: A Devotional for Hella.":
(yes, I dislike the title, but this isn't my book so it wasn't my call. don't let it dissuade you from considering a purchase).
I am very happy to announce that bibliotheca alexandrina has released its newest devotional: "Queen of the Sacred Way," a devotional anthology to Persephone.
I know many of my readers have been waiting for this one for a long time. (for those wondering at my involvement, it is very, very minimal: I have one small piece in the book, a poem written close to twenty years ago.) This promises to be a beautiful offering to the Hellenic Goddess of the Underworld. So check it out folks. i'm waiting with baited breath for their upcoming Hermes devotional. :)
"Queen of the Sacred Way" may be found here: http://neosalexandria.org/bibliotheca-alexandrina/current-titles/queen-of-the-sacred-way-a-devotional-anthology-in-honor-of-persephone/
this tells you where and how to order. It will be on amazon.com soon, but (as I well know from my own publishing exploits) they can take a few weeks to update their online catalog. Congrats, to those of you involved in the collecting, editing, and publishing. This is a beautiful book.
This is the last call for those who might want to contribute to my forthcoming devotional to Idunna and Bragi. I'm nearly finished preparing the manuscript for submission and I hope to be ready to submit by February 15.
If anyone wants to contribute anything, please contact me at tamyris at earthlink dot net ASAP.
(hint: i'm especially looking for a couple more apple-related recipes).
What Should the Devotional Be Called?
In the meantime, I have not yet decided upon a title. I am taking suggestions. Please post here if you would like to weigh in.
If i choose your title, I will give you a free copy of the finished devotional and a mention in the acknowledgements section.
While my Sekhmet devotional, titled "When the Lion Roars" isn't quite on the market yet, it soon will be (maybe even in time for Yule) and I thought i'd give y'all a sneak peak at the cover art.
This was designed by artist K.C. Hulsman utilizing photographs taken by photographer Mary Ann Glass.
Stay tuned, folks, and I'll be sure to post here as soon as this book has been released.
