I have been sick this past week and a half with a cold and a respiratory infection. I’m much better now. (Antibiotics, Tylenol and Sudafed, FTW!)
I have some updates on some of my projects.
Lord of Strength and Power: Ancient Hymns for Wepwawet is a collection of ancient hymns and prayers to the canine god Wepwawet, the warrior, scout and hunter of the gods. I am waiting on one set of permissions and then I can publish the book.
I have sent in the permissions for Lady of the Sky: Ancient Hymns of the Goddess Aset from the Temple of Dendera. We’ll see what they say. I’m still waiting.
I am still working on She Who Speaks Through Silence: An Anthology of Nebet Het (Nephthys). I am still waiting on some submissions.
I’m almost done with another poetry collection. This book has more poems to Athena, Hestia, Hera, Hera and Zeus, various Orisha (Oya, Oshun, Yemaya, Osanyin, Shango, etc) and Frigga. I’m considering calling it Holy Words, Holy Praise since it is kind of a volume 2 of Divine Words, Divine Praise. Does anyone have any feedback on the title?
I am compiling a compilation of scholarly papers I wrote in Graduate school (and afterward) about various goddesses, Orishas and a saint (Mary); and I have one other essay about women’s healing and talismanry (I know it doesn’t fit, but I have no idea where else I could publish it. I may take it out and publish it by itself. I’m not sure.). I’m thinking of making this into another book. My working title is Holy Lady, Holy Queen: Papers on the Feminine Divine.
