Well let me get the bad out the way first. There are some words cut off and the separations between pages isn't always the best. I don't think there was enough time taken for the editing process.
That being said, I still loved it. It's a collection of articles, rituals, poems and short stories. I know 3 of the contributors from Facebook. There's our beloved Mrs. B of Confessions of a Soccer Mom who writes out a great article on making your own runes using nothing more than Pumpkin seeds and a marker. I just bought pumpkins on sale yesterday, I think I'll have to try this one. Anyone want a set?
Angelique Mroczka of The Balanced Witch and The Pagan Writers Community leads us through a guided meditation appropriate for this season.
And Kallan Kennedy of The Secret Life of the American Working Witch who shares with us a Samhain Chant called "Homage to My Ancestors."
It's like a collection of blog entries all tied together. There is a lot of writing about ancestors and altars, and an altar for ancestors. There are recipes, family traditions, ancient traditions. And as I mentioned before, poems and stories that feed off all of that. Definitely an entertaining read, and only 109 pages, so it's fast as well.
All profit on this book goes into the coin purse of The Pagan Writers Community - which seeks to help, inspire and promote artists of alternative faiths. Considering I can only think of 2 publishers that work with pagan material, this is a needed program.
