I am setting up an etsy shop for my handmade rosaries… I shall start listing items in the coming weeks.
Crafting rosaries is something I have been longing to do for some time, and now that I have begun doing so, I must say that the activity is very soothing. It is prayerful and helps me to maintain my inner balance; writing is excellent, but mental endeavors on their own can drain the spirit. Handiwork is a spiritual necessity.
Speaking of books…
It is official: I shall be signing books at Infinitus (Bring forth the best robes: a spiritual understanding of Severus Snape and The flawed master: lessons Professor Snape taught me). I shall let you know when they will take place once this has been determined by the convention organizers.
I shall also be submitting two proposals next week, and when I know if they have been accepted, I shall share the news with you here.
I have rescheduled the publication of A Princely Calling: Severus Snape and monastic self-surrender to the summer of 2011 (not long before the second Deathly Hallows film). It simply would not have been physically possible for me to write and complete the book in time for Infinitus; I have had to cut myself a bit of slack, as it were, otherwise I shall burn out again. I shall be reading essays from the first two books in my theological Snape trilogy at Infinitus.
The official publication date for Blessed is Monday, April 5th 2010 -the day after Pascha. I shall be working on the book during Great Lent.
I shall be publishing No lasting city in February.
God bless you for your affection and support! Both are deeply appreciated.
