August already. I do, however, love this time of year. August is slow and quiet and lush, summer at its height with the first hints of autumn in the air…
This weekend, I’ll be working on the second edit of Atheist Tiki Hour. Then I’ll send the book to Atheist Republic next week.
*chewing on hands*
A lot of atheist books focus on the history of religion, analyze Biblical contradictions and inaccuracies, knock down creationism, and so on, and they do so very well. I have many of those books; they’re vital. My own books focus more on religion as abusive in nature, religious faith as a relationship with an abuser. I share my own experiences to highlight this reality, and in Tiki Hour I write about how my exposure to domestic violence and the post-traumatic stress disorder I’ve suffered as a result made me extremely susceptible to the poisoned apple of faith. I write about the vulnerable, idealistic, tender-hearted believer who was traumatized into belief, as it were. It’s an awareness campaign.
I also write about the vibrant joy of godless living.
In other news, Quietus 2016!
The room block is all set, and attendees can now make their reservations.
Also, I’m thrilled to announce our first amazing guests.
On Sunday afternoon, talented musician and song writer Errand of Mercy will be performing gentle Snape inspired acoustic songs for us. She’ll also have copies of her gorgeous CD.
Quietus is set to be a special intimate gathering, which gives me a great deal of happiness.
As soon as Tiki Hour is wrapped up, I’ll start working on these books:
The story of how Logospilgrim’s ideas about Professor Snape helped her
adjust and evolve as she went through a series of life-altering changes.
I hope to have this book ready in time for Quietus, but we’ll see! I will be rambling on Saturday afternoon.
Eat penny candy while sitting on the sidewalk, and do your own damn thing.
Be your kind of happy.
Needless to say, I’ll be letting you know when Atheist Tiki Hour is released as soon as I have that information.
Otherwise, I’m relaxing, enjoying tranquil summer days, and adding more toys to my collection.
I hope you’re having a marvelous summer too.
Logospilgrim, the quiet professor
