Even though I finally started a follow-up to Walking the Heartroad some 2 years ago (after mentally drafting it for about three years before that) it wasn’t until, um, yesterday that I finally laid hands on the files that had gotten lost in the grand computer shuffle of 2015. It’s taken me an awfully long time to come back to this project. I’ve spent the last couple years heavily focused on making the Loki and Odin devotional books, writing Worshiping Loki, handbinding the limited run of Worshiping Loki, and getting the Santa Muerte book MS started. (And also, you know, working two jobs and studying and practicing and working on projects for clients and and and.) BUT! Now that I finally have the files at home on a computer that is unlikely(?) to break down in the foreseeable future, I can finally get back to it.
If you’ve taken a look at my Patreon, you may have noticed that supporters at the $5 level receive previews of works in progress. This month supporters got to see a sample of the Santa Muerte book. In October, supports will get to see a sample of the new Heartroad manuscript. So far I have material about obstacles on the devotional path, pitfalls that devotional practitioners might encounter, and a few other subjects. While Walking the Heartroad had chapters that flowed into each other, this new book will likely be a series of essays that can be read in any order. It’s a book about the things that can happen in a devotional practice over a long period of time. While beginners are certainly encouraged to check it out, its intended audience is people who have been engaged in devotional practice for many years.
I’m actually really excited to get back to this book and I can’t wait to share it with you. This is a great time to become a Patreon supporter; I’d love to have you along for this proceses. Even if you can’t support this campaign right now, please feel free to share it with others. I’ve got loads of project plans that I’m looking forward to working on.
