Two Years Ago I Just Finished Writing Candle Magic

Two years ago I finished the first draft of my book Pagan Portals - Candle Magic. I discovered that fact when I saw a memory of a post I'd shared on Facebook back then:
Yesterday was a good day - I finished the first draft of my book! Yay! I know it needs rewrites and is 2,000 words too long, but the main writing is done. I celebrated in the evening by drinking lots of cider at the Moon and Stars cider festival. Also yesterday I got paid £200 for some freelance work that I'd been chasing up for a month and my new internet dongle that only arrived at the weekend was particularly useful as my broadband was down for most of the day. Now to do rewrites on my book with a bit of a hangover...
I got the final manuscript finished by the end of August 2015 and it was published in February 2016. A year and a half on from that and I've been very happy with the reviews the book has got and the number of copies sold.

Last year I edited a Moon Books community book, Every Day Magic - A Pagan Book of Days, which is due to be published this autumn. There will be a launch party for that at The Atlantis Bookshop in London on November 4.

You can view Pagan Portals - Candle Magic on Amazon or buy it from The Atlantis Bookshop or Treadwell's Books.
