This summer, I have been quieter than usual on my blog, newsletter and social media presence. This was because I was wrapping up the completion of my eBook:
Have Tarot Will Travel: A Comprehensive Guide to Reading at Fesitvals as a Tarot Reader.
It is now available on Amazon!
Writing Have Tarot Will Travel began last fall and took me about 9 months from conception to completion. It was born out of the dearth of festival work information for the Tarot professional.
I love reading Tarot at festivals and it was a brick in the road to building a truly comprehensice Tarot practice for myself. But there was not much out there in terms of technical information like how to handle clients of all stripes, how to deal with payments, what kind of set up works... all of that I learned through trial and error.
So as an addition to the field I created Have Tarot so that it may help and sustain other pracitoners. Not only that, it fits with my overarching goal of normalizing Tarot. I hope one day that one could get a Tarot reading in the same way we get a massage or go to a yoga class, a helpful session stripped of all the drama and stigma.
Creating this eBook was a true labour of love, the last push the final 3 weeks before publishing I was a hot mess, not eating until 2pm, living in yoga pants, hair up in a bun and unbrushed as I feverishly revised, typing into the long night. The last week I felt so exhausted but excited at the same time: you know when you first fall in love-- that delicious misery. I can also see how writers can get hooked, it is a heady feeling! I also got to feel the pure love of colleagues and mentors in the Tarot community, how amazingly generous and supportive everyone was for my project, a humbling experience with a heart bursting in gratitude.
I know many who read this blog are not Tarot (or would be) Tarot professionals so just know this is where I have been all summer. Laid up in my office in a pique of creative creationing. For those of you who do wish to become or enhance your practice, I truly hope this will be a help to you, guiding you as you build your practice.
I am an author! Happy dance! Bucket List CHECK!
