Welcome to my blog!  Here you will find mostly a news feed of what I'm up to and the things I've written, along with some writings on Paganism, Wicca, magick and metaphysical subjects, book excerpts, articles, rants, and so forth.  This blog is mostly informational, so if you want to minimize your email traffic but stay informed, this is the one for you.  My other blogs include:

Between the Shadows: the Craft of a Liminal Witch

My blog at the Patheos Pagan channel where I write about being between the worlds on almost every issue, lingering in the liminal spaces, and the Craft in general.

Sable Aradia, Priestess & Witch:

Contains much of the same subject matter as this one, only it will also contain bits of Pagan humour in the form of images and videos, which are much more easily shared in the Wordpress format than the Webs format.  If I post something here that I think is relevant there, I will be sharing the link.

Confessions of a Geek Queen:

I found that there were many things I wanted to talk about and share that were not relevant to Paganism, but they were relevant to the World of Geekdom, including RPGs, MMORPGs, epic music, superhero flicks, historical re-enactment and so forth.  You'll find pics, humour, commentary, news and reviews there.

I also edit:

Winding Widdershins:

A Pagan blog about Canadian Politics for Pagans who hate politics.


Wildspace: the Spelljammer Fanzine

A blog of interest to fans of the Spelljammer setting from Dungeons & Dragons.

Blessed be and enjoy!

Seeking Beta Readers for My Science Fiction Novel

Posted on December 15, 2016 at 10:05 PM Comments comments (0)

Hello there, friendly readers! I've been working on a hard science fiction project for National Novel Writing Month and I'm just about finished. Sometime in early 2017 I will be looking for beta readers to give it a peruse and offer opinions.


A beta reader, if you don't know, reads an unpublished manuscript at some time before it's submitted for publication to help guide the author in the editing process. The benefit to you is that you get to read a brand-new novel for free before anybody else has a look at it. The drawback is that, being as it will be an unfinished manuscript, it's not as likely to be as well polished as a published work you're buying from the store. Also, I'll be circulating questionnaires after each chapter that I'll need you to fill out in order to pin down areas where the work needs improvement.


Part of what you'll be reading for is clarity, ability to identify with the characters, pacing, and general interest. I'm not looking for editors at this time so you won't need to worry about grammar or punctuation. Primarily I'm hoping to attract people who are familiar with science fiction and like the genre, but any regular reader who can read somewhat quickly and regularly is welcome.


I am also looking for an astrophysicist and a geologist who are interested in reading for technical accuracy in those fields.


As you might expect, you'll need to agree not to share the contents of my work with anyone else.


If you're interested, please contact me here on my blog, on my website, or at my Twitter page. And thanks for your time in advance!
