Book Revision and Card Reading Services

I have completed the first set of revisions on Lily Strange's original story, Lost Beneath the Surface. It is due out in late January or early February. If you are interested in seeing excerpts from the original book, please click the link. This book is no longer available, and Lily does not intend to re-release it.
My revision removes most real-people characters. While the characters in my version are LOOSELY based on the real people in Lily's book, they take on personalities of their own. I feel that working with fully fictional characters as opposed to fictionalized versions of real people gives me freedom to expand beyond the personalities of the real people. Thus, while the character Sigurd Mikaelsson, for instance, is based on the person who inspired Lily's original story, Sigurd then takes on a life--or unlife--of his own. He may be a shadow of the person on whom he is based, but he is not this person's doppelganger.
My revision also brings in more references to the Lovecraftian Mythos, so if that's your thing, maybe you'll enjoy it!

And now, a word about my particular psychic abilities  
While I am a clairvoyant who possesses a degree of mediumistic abilities, and I do have a spirit friend with whom I have communicated for a number of years, I am not a professional medium. As well, I am generally not in contact with the spirit with whom Lily wrote her original book. I spoke to him once to get his approval on the project. He was polite to me. That's as far as it goes. Please do NOT ask me to ask him questions. He does not seem like he's particularly interested in answering questions. He is not "evil." My impression of him was of a quiet, somewhat stoic individual. It seems to me that he generally wants to just be left alone and he doesn't understand what all the flap is about him.

A word about my services:
I am a professional Tarot reader. I will be setting up a blog devoted to readings. As a promotional tool, I will offer one free basic Celtic Cross reading to anyone who allows me to put the reading on the blog. Private readings are $25 per question for a Celtic Cross or two paths reading, $10 per question for a basic three-card past/present/future reading, or $5 for a single card insight, and are done by email only due to my rather insane work schedule. I do NOT do free private readings. 
I will hopefully be setting up a page for my readings sometime in the not so distant future. In the meantime, if you are interested in a reading, email me at and I will send you a Paypal request form. Or if you are interested in having your reading appear on the promo blog, let me know. I won't use your real name.
I'm actually not particularly enamored of social networking, but in today's world it seems to be a necessity if one is attempting to sell a creative project. So I will do my best to be as social as possible. I don't tend to update this blog very often. Please consider liking my page on Facebook for more frequent updates.
Blessed be,
