Well – I’ve just been outside and can’t see the full moon yet, although it’s a lovely clear night. I really miss the big open skies of Dorset. There are so many tall trees around here (which are lovely too of course) but you don’t get a view of the sky so well. Anyone feeling moongazy tonight?

I’ve just sent out the Lammas newsletter, and hope you like it. If you’re not on the Stonewylde mailing list, you can read it on the website (when Mr B’s put it up there!) and do subscribe to it, so you’ll get the Autumn Equinox newsletter. It’s all been very frantic here. The US edition of Magus of Stonewylde is going to print this week, and we’ve been working hard on it. The cover’s been redesigned and we’ve just had it through today. The image is the same, but the blurb very different. We’re now checking all the text etc ready to send it over the water – exciting stuff!! We’ve found a brilliant distributor in the USA – Magus Books – who are really keen to promote the Stonewylde Series. There’s a good review coming out in the New Age Retailer magazine which goes out to thousands of new age type shops all over the USA. Hopefully this will give the USA launch a great start.

We’ve just spent a fantastic weekend at Womad (or Womud as one wag wrote on a sign there) in a camper van. There was a wonderful buzz – my first visit to Womad but I’m definitely going back next year, despite the awful mud. Actually you get used to the mud after a while and develop a good technique for moving about in it. The music was great, the flags so beautiful, and everyone buy phentermine legally there really chilled and friendly. It’s my dream to one day stage a Stonewylde Festival. What a thought!

I also had a lovely time last week in Glastonbury, visiting Pete Gotto of Counter Culture. He distributes to many alternative type shops all over the country, and reports excellent sales of both Stonewylde books, with many requests for the third one. Of course I just had to visit the shops whilst I was there (Stonewylde is sold in Growing Needs, Gothic Image and the Chalice Well Garden shop) and then I climbed up the Tor. Wow! It was bright and sunny and everything was so very green. I’d forgotten what an amazing view it is from up there. I popped into the Avalon Library and gave them copies of both books. I was most impressed with the dragon sculpture outside – worth a look next time you’re in Glastonbury if you haven’t seen it before.

This coming weekend it’s the Lammas Fair at Eastbourne, and I’ll be signing copies of my books at the Green Man Bookstall all afternoon. I’m really looking forward to this event – do take a look at the website (link on my website) as it’s really interesting. I can’t wait to see the parade of giants and morrigans, and maybe I’ll even meet up with the funny little green man I keep bumping into at these things. Best of all – I’ll finally get to see The Dolmen!!! They’re great Stonewylde fans and also friends on MySpace, but I’ve never actually seen them play. I think they’re on at 4pm, and are headlining the bands there. I’ve heard they’re fantastic.

I’m off outside again now to check on the Full Moon. Bright blessings to all moongazy folk out there!
