Community Book Every Day Magic is at the Printers!

I've had a notification that the community book I edited - Every Day Magic - A Pagan Book of Days - is at the printers. It is always so exciting when a project you've been working on for a long while gets another step closer to becoming public!

Every Day Magic is a Moon Books community book and contains contributions from nearly 50 pagan authors and practitioners from many different traditions across the world, including Atlantis' Geraldine Beskin, best-selling pagan authors Ellen Evert Hopman, Melusine Draco, Harmonia Saille, Rachel Patterson, Caroline Wise and Elen Sentier and other Moon Books writers.

Here is the description from publisher Moon Books' website:
Every Day Magic - A Pagan Book of Days contains 366 spells, rituals, meditations, Pagan prayers, divinatory techniques, poems to read and recipes and craft projects to try out, along with the details of festivals that take place throughout the year. All the activities are intended to be easy to follow so you can pick up the book, open it to a day and find something you can do. There are festivals from the ancient world and modern Pagan celebrations as well.
As well as coming up with the idea for Every Day Magic, I edited and contributed to it - and I'm very proud of it. However, as it is a community book I will not be receiving royalties - I asked for any money raised from it to be used to help bring more pagan writers' works into publication.

The book isn't due to be officially launched until November 24, but you will be able to see and buy early copies of the book at the launch party on November 4 at The Atlantis Bookshop, 49A Museum St, London WC1A 1LY. The party runs from 4pm to 7pm and there will be tea and cake as well as a chance to hear some readings from the book. The launch event will be free to attend, but you will need to reserve a place in advance. Tel: 020 7405 2120, email or pop into the shop to book your place. You can also contact the shop to order copies of the book if you can't get there in person.

You can also take part in a Thunderclap to celebrate the official launch of the book on November 24. It is completely free to take part in this - for more details, go to this link:
