Just published! Anointed: A Devotional Anthology

Join me in celebrating the release of Anointed: A Devotional Anthology for the Deities of the Near and Middle East, edited by Tess Dawson! This project occurred under the auspices of Bibliotheca Alexandria, a project of Neos Alexandria that fosters Pagan writing and publishing.

It includes two pieces of mine, the poem “Call to Inanna,” which starts out:

Out of the depths, I call to you, Inanna!

Out of the depths of my fear, I call to you, holy priestess!

Out of the depths my call echoes up to you, Queen of Heaven!

Do not forget me!

Do not forsake me!

Do not abandon me to my fear!

and an article, “Facing Fear,” which describes how

The Call to Inanna can be used as a solitary ritual in order to have a cathartic confrontation with fear and reclaim your power in the face of that fear.

It also looks like there are some great resources on other, less well-known deities and cultures. I can’t wait to get my copy! If you have any interest in these deities, check it out. Please note that I get no money for this and do not have a financial interest in your purchase, but I encourage you to support Bibliotheca Alexandrina by buying through their site if you do want to get the book.
