I have sent the Wepwawet book, Lord of Strength and Power to the formatters! I decided to take the Anubis section out since I wanted this to be just about Wepwawet. I can send the Anubis material to Bibliotheca Alexandrina and see if they need it.
I have also sent another poetry book to the formatters. This is a companion to Divine Words, Divine Praise. It has poems to Athena, Athena and Zeus, Athena and Poseidon, Hestia, Hela, Hekate, Frigga, Hera and Zeus, and many Orisha (Oya, Yemaya, Oshun, Osanyin, Shango, Obatala, and Nana Buruku). I’m calling it Holy Words, Holy Praise. I’m hoping to come up with a better title. It sounds pretentious to me.
My new book is now available for purchase!
Here is a collection of poems about various Goddesses, Orisha and Gods from around the world.
Within Divine Words, Divine Praise, you will find poetry of:

In case you missed it, I have published Magician, Mother and Queen.
I have finished and am preparing to publish another poetry book. The title of this now is Divine Words, Divine Praise: Poetry of the Holy Powers. I have sent it in to the formatters.
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 have been compiling all the material for this book She Who Speaks Through Silence: An Anthology of Nebet Het (Nephthys). I am still waiting on some submissions.
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.
I am learning throughout this time in my life where I am changing and shedding skin while making way for the new: There is so much more mercy, understanding and forgiveness than I could have possibly hoped for. I have more strength than I ever imagined.
I am loved by more people and spirits and Gods than I ever thought possible–and I am worthy of that love.
I am changing and growing. I am becoming someone new. I am becoming who I am. I am becoming myself.
I am not finished, yet the road is paved for me to walk. I travel on this road to embrace the star that is my soul.
May it become. Kheperu.
Hail the Gods and Goddesses of Egypt! Hail the Gods and Goddesses of Greece!
Within, Jennifer Larson. Ancient Greek Cults: A Guide. Routeledge, 2007 it mentions a terracotta of Hera in a very unusual way.
She is described as: “the enthroned goddess holding a spear, a child, a horse or a pomegranate” (page 37).

Here is a thoughtful article on the Greek Goddess Hera.
Here is the link: Who is Hera?
So I found an article about Aset/Isis (You’re shocked, I’m sure!) and within it, the author spoke of Isis and Hera syncretism.
11-Festival of Hera Teleia
The article also says that this is a festival of Isis, but that she’s assimilated with Hera, so I’m not sure if this is an Isis festival, a Hera Teleia Festival or an Isis-Hera Teleia festival.
It also mentioned a triad of Zeus, Hera and Athena being honored. Hera also has an epithet called Hera of the Great Throne.

This is a great article from Baring the Aegis blog by Elani Temperance about rituals and shrines within Hellenismos.
