It's that time of year again. No, not fall (not quite). It's time for me to write articles for the Llewellyn Annuals and Almanacs. And, as you can see above, get my copies of the ones I wrote last year! [Yay! Author perk! Woot!]
Don't worry; they'll be out soon and you all can run and get a copy of your favorite. Or favorites. Be sure and come back here and tell me if you liked one of my articles. Pretty please.
I'm really excited to be featured in the Spell-A-Day Almanac for the first time, along with the Witches' Datebook. These two are so handy, everyone should have one! But if I had to pick a favorite, I think it would be the Witches' Companion: An Almanac for Everyday Living. I am the "Everyday Witch," after all.
This year's Witches' Companion features some of my favorite Pagan authors, including Gail Wood, Lupa, Mickie Mueller, Blake Octavian Blair (us Blake's have to stick together), Ann Moura, Tess Whitehurst, Denise Dumars, and my new fav Melanie Marquis--along with a whole lot of other great folks, too long a list to write here. I also have an article about finding your personal goddess in the Magical Almanac, and talk about Imbolc in the Sabbats Almanac.
As for what I'm working on now...I have two articles for next year's Magical Almanac, a really fun one on "Kitchen Alchemy" for the Witches' Companion, and I'm doing Yule for the Sabbats Almanac. These articles are a blast to write, and I hope that people find them informative and fun to read.
What's that? You want to know why the word "contest" is in big letters in the title of this blog? Gee, I knew I was forgetting something!
I'm so excited about the new annuals, I'm going to do another contest here to celebrate. Here's what we're going to do: leave me a comment about which almanac or annual is your favorite and why. You get an extra point if you can tell me which one of my articles is your favorite. (Well, not really, but I'd still love to know.) And, of course, I'd love it if you want to Tweet or Facebook or otherwise pass the word about this blog post. At the end of the week, Friday night at nine EST, I'll randomly pick a commenter to win one of the following: Witches' Spell-A-Day Almanac 2012, 2012, Witches' Companion, or this year's Sabbats Almanac--winner's choice!
So, which is your favorite Llewellyn Annual?
