Nephthys Devotional Update

I wanted to let everyone  know that I’m  still working on  the Nephthys devotional, She Who Speaks Through Silence: A Devotional Anthology of Nebet Het (Nephthys).  I am waiting on some submissions and Tamara Siuda’s  The Ancient  Egyptian Daybook to be published since  I  wanted to include as many festivals to Her in the book as possible (with credit and citations, of course!).

So far the sections I have are:

Ancient Hymns and Prayers

Essays

Ritual and  Magic (I only have  three things here.)

My Poetry to Nebet Het (over 40 poems)

My Poetry to Aset and Nebet  Het (about 30 poems)

Modern Hymns, Prayers and Adorations

Fiction

And an  Epilogue of Epithet and Syncretization Lists

Also References and a Glossary

Contributor Biographies
