Winter Solstice - A Time of Chaos and Misrule

For those of us living south of the equator, today marks the time of the Winter Solstice, where for a short period of time the sun seems to "stand still" as it has reached the northern most point in it journey, before making the slow swing back to the southern point. 
In Beyond the Blue Horizon, astronomer and author Dr Krupp described this time as “the turning point” of the year and the moment when “all of nature was poised to step over the border” of the old cycle into the new.  In other words, it will be the winter solstice, the time when the sun reaches its southern most point of its cycle, resulting in the shortest number of daylight hours.

First Delivery has Arrived

And it is joy upon joy when I collected two large and rather heavy boxes of books from the local post office this afternoon. 
Now to undertake the slow process of handwriting personal dedications to all those wonderful people who have been waiting patiently for their books - not to mention addressing all the satchels that will then be carted back to the post office.

First Delivery Only Days Away (I hope)

When things are out of your control and you are dependant of others, the process of waiting can be rather excruciating.  This is the situation that I find myself in as I wait for the first delivery of Dancing the Sacred Wheel to arrive. 
Eleven days has passed since I received notification that the order was on its way, yet nothing has arrived at my post office.  Unlike the first edition which was printed locally (where I was able to telephone to check on the status), the second edition is printed overseas.
Due to the overwhelming response, I am on the verge of placing my second order as a way to ensure that my patience isn't tested as it is now.
Dancing the Sacred Wheel is also available online through Createspace and I am hoping that an ebook version will be available on before the end of the month.
