In Phoenix and On Radio in October

Posted by on in Paths Blogs

Hear me in October on online radio and at an outdoor in-person event, a booksigning for my new book Asatru: A Beginner's Guide to the Heathen Path. I'm not making a full book tour this year because of the pandemic, but I am venturing one state over to Phoenix, Arizona to hold an outdoor booksigning and storytelling at Fantasia Crystals on October 24 from 5pm-6:30pm. In case of rain the reading room will be available as a backup venue. Books will be available for purchase on the day, and also in advance at the shop.

I'm planning to tell the story of Freya's jewel, Brisingamen. There's a chapter in my unpublished novel Some Say Fire that recounts a version of that myth. The chapter contains a lot of gnosis, and my storytelling will be based on that chapter.

On September 28th I'll be on Witching Hour Spellcast with host Pamela Kelly. Link to Witching Hour Spellcast: 

On October 29th I'll be on Ghostman Radio with host Mark Antony Raines to promote my book. It's not a pagan or heathen oriented show, so I'll have a chance to introduce the general public to Asatru, and will be concentrating on very basic information.

I usually go the my local Renfaire in October, but it was canceled this year, as was Las Vegas Pagan Pride Day. Hopefully they will both return next year. I had been planning to vend my books at Pagan Pride this year, before the pandemic interfered with large events. But I hope to do more online events instead. This summer I had the change to participate in virtual Frith Forge, the anti-racism conference, and I got a lot out of it despite trying to work the same weekend, which I would definitely not have been able to do at an in-person event, so online events have some advantages. I'm available for more radio appearances, magazine interviews, etc. so if you write or host, message me on my social media.
