Taking my Blog in a New Direction

I originally began this blog at the behest of my publishers at Eloquent Books who were keen to have me publicize the release of my first novel Loot http://www.amazon.com/Loot-D-G-Mattichak-Jr/dp/1609117239/ref=ntt_at_ep_dpt_1/178-2556430-2472429 (please check it out and if you like what you see buy it!). I began with the intention of writing about writing, crime fiction, print on demand publishing and other topics of interest to writers generally. Since then I have acquired a few subscribers and thousands of people have viewed my blogs. The writing that seems to attract the most attention and which generates the most comments and general interest has been the essays on the odd topics that I have been researching like the Rosicrucians and the Wiccan/Pagan movement here in Australia- not the stuff that I have posted about writing per se.

Recently I have been very lax in posting blogs, mostly due to spending a lot more time on research for more books. My second book, A Comment on the Verses of the Book of the Law, should be out very soon (barring any more unforeseen circumstances) and as a writer I have moved on to new topics and different interests. As such I have had very little to post about publishing, or about crime fiction (or even on new age subjects) and meanwhile this blog has been mostly unattended. Even so it continues to generate interest in my work and so, bearing these things in mind, I have decided to take my blog in a new direction, using it to share some of the amazing things that I learn in the course of researching my books, and also as a platform for introducing my own ideas and observations of modern life that I hope will continue to interest my faithful readers and to excite the interest of new ones alike.

So, over the coming months I intend to post a lot of (hopefully) interesting stuff, perhaps some controversial takes on world events and to engage in some entertaining and enlightening repatee with those of you who read my posts.

About dgmattichakjr

D G Mattichak jr was born in 1963 in Syracuse New York and immigrated to Melbourne Australia with his family in 1972. He was educated in one of Melbourne’s exclusive private schools before studying art at Preston Technical College. D G Mattichak jr has been a student of the occult arts since the early 1980s and has become well known in Australian magickal circles and, in recent years, around the world due to a string of essays on a variety of occult subjects http://www.scribd.com/dmattichak/shelf . He discovered the “key to the order & value of the English alphabet” from Aleister Crowley’s Book of the Law in 1983 and has since used this English Qabalah to unlock the secrets of Thelemite magick. Success in these methods admitted him to the highest levels of attainment in various Hermetic disciplines and until recently he has been passing on his knowledge to private students, many of whom have gone on to become notable occultists in their own right. After almost three decades of study and development D G Mattichak jr has finally been able to distil his knowledge of magick and Thelema into a book- A Comment on the Verses of the Book of the Law, the first in a planned series of books on Hermeticism and Thelemite magick, revealing, for the first time in over a century, the secrets of magick that have been hidden in Crowley’s magnum opus, the Book of the Law. D G Mattichak jr currently lives in Melbourne Australia with his artist wife Michelle and their two cats. He has had a long career as an al a carte chef in Melbourne’s vibrant hospitality scene and now spends his time writing blogs on cooking, writing and, in the guise of Master Ankh af na Khonsu, about magick. He is also one of the founding members of the Mt Franklin Annual Pagan Gathering and regularly contributes to its official website http://mountfranklinannualpagangathering.blogspot.com/ as both an administrator and as an author. D G Mattichak jr’s first book Loot was released in 2009. His books are available through amazon.com at http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias=stripbooks&field-keywords=D G Mattichak&x=13&y=20 .
