General Update Time!

It’s time for the very first update of the year- I won’t do these as frequently, probably, because some of the content gets a bit redundant.
First; I have managed to acquire a dozen or so new works I did not have before, for editing. I have enough material to last me through 200 editions, which is the end goal for this year.
Second: Because of my surge of work in December (which I will continue through this month also) I am well ahead of the curve- a lot of the remaining works I hope to release are fairly short and most are in good condition so replicating and editing them will be quicker than for works in poorer conditions or which are quite long. (I like to release works that most consider too short to be worth editing.)
Third: At some point I am going to take a good long look at the Grand Albert and consider releasing it as I did for the Petit Albert: It is important to note that there are two Grand Alberts in circulation, one of which is not a folkloric document and has nothing to do with occult workings.
Fourth: It seems sales have recovered from their lull post-Createspace and may even have risen, possibly because of the huge number of new titles released in December. Since income from crowdfunding is down across the board for most people who create content at all it makes sense to surge on ahead with what has been my primary income anyways; namely, literature.
Fifth: I hope to write a few works of my own in 2019- a couple occult topics and perhaps some spooky fiction.
Onward with the year!

Coming Soon: After the Ashes and Psychedelic Spirituality!

Alright literary world.

Since I still do not wish to continue editing without great caution I have been feverishly improving one of my own authored works; “After the Ashes” (originally from 2015) now, I think, considerably better. I redacted a few dated portions and replaced them with updated info (for example, North Korea had atomic but not hydrogen weapons in 2015!) and reformatted it. I am now working on the cover and tomorrow or the day after it should be ready; the second edition! I’ll keep the first available as well. It runs 119 pages.

 

Next up planned for around mid July then is “Psychedelic Spirituality”- this work of psychotropic lore contains some anecdotes from my own former shamanistic dabblings, a general list of mind altering substances of note, and some political material associated with psychedelics and the drug war/temperance. I imagine I’ll be adding a section or two to this one.

 

After that I plan to write a couple dozen new morbid stories and split the initial work in two. The 6×9 format currently used for that edition doesn’t look right and it would end up nearly 400 pages as a 5×8 work, which is a nightmare to format properly as far as trim goes. Releasing MSI and MSII as a split work with a dozen new entries per edition makes more sense.

 

Every other work I have personally written will be re-released in a new format except for the five occult works I already did so for last year.

General Update: Spring!

I figured it was about time for another update; as spring marches along I’m already requisitioning materials for my garden, so those of you who enjoy that series will get some new footage soon- along with massive improvements.

On the literary side, I am now about 75% complete editing DeLaurences’ odd work “The Mystic Hindu Test Book”- this work covers astral bodies, spirits, crystal gazing, seances, and more; it’s quite good after the second chapter (up to that point it is self advertizement and run on sentences.) At around 130 or so pages, it will be an important work here.

After that, I figure on completing a couple other DeLaurence works; they’re all of similar length and have various eugenic-era spiritual content revolving around eastern tradition, spirits, and the like. I also have two short herbals and need to contact my illustrator for those to be completed. As promised the Theurgia Goetia will also soon be edited. I figure I can complete seven new works by the end of May at current projections.
