Writing Pyramidos

My latest book; Pyramidos: Self Initiation in the Aeon of Horus, has its genesis in a series of correspondences between myself and a magician of considerable knowledge and experience. Having both found success in our practice of magick we both find ourselves in a position of offering guidance and advice to novices at the occult arts and we discussed potential strategies for providing useful and practical advice for these students as they embark upon the Path of the Wise.

The Business of Writing 3

One of the first misconceptions about being an author is that all that you have to do is get your book published and it will go on Amazon.com and start selling like mad. The reality is that unless you have told them that it is there nobody is going to know and that isn’t going to sell a whole lot of books.
