Catching Up

I've been busy over the last couple of weeks so I haven't had a chance to update the blog. But here's some of what's been going on and will be happening over the next couple of months. I hope to be able to get back to more substantial blogging soon.

New Job: I started a new job at the end of December. The good news is that I'm making more money than I've ever made, but the bad news is that it takes up more of my time than the last one did.

New Manuscript: I just finished off a new manuscript, for a non-fiction book on working with John Dee's Heptarchia Mystica. I'm in the process of shopping it around to publishers, starting with Pendraig who published Arcana. I've wanted to formally publish my work with the Enochian system for quite a few years, and hopefully this will be a good start.

Planetary Magick Presentation: I will be giving a presentation on planetary magick for Paganicon, which will be happening here in the Twin Cities over the weekend of March 24th and 25th. I plan on covering the Intelligences and Spirits from Agrippa, so it will definitely have an "old school" feel to it even though the ritual forms I use incorporate a number of modern elements.

Underground Film: Later this month I'll be acting in a short underground film, playing (of course) an evil magician. This will be my first acting role outside of my own experimental film work, and I'm looking forward to doing it. Bad guys get all the good lines!

Arcana for Kindle: My novel is now available on Kindle, for any of you who might have missed the announcements on Facebook and my author web site. While the print version of Arcana was a bit pricey for a paperback, the Kindle edition is quite inexpensive even as Kindle books go. If you have a Kindle, iPad, or anything else that reads the format check it out.

I'll add that the weird news hasn't been what it used to be lately. In the past, a lot of the times that I've been too busy to write up a longer article I've been able to check the weird news and come up with something interesting or amusing that tied back into religion or spirituality. But recently it seems that the religious, spiritual, and paranormal stories just haven't been showing up as often. Hopefully this is just a dry spell and not an overall trend, because I would much rather read about ghosts or Jesus sightings or the Apocalypse than stupid criminals and odd pets.
