Easy Tarot Reading by Josephine Ellershaw

Easy Tarot Reading 250 I'm super-excited to announce that my friend Josephine Ellershaw is coming out with a brand new book in October 2011 called Easy Tarot Reading: The Process Revealed in Ten True Readings!

Published by Llewellyn, Easy Tarot Reading was written in response to readers asking Josephine for more information beyond her illuminating (and bestselling) first book Easy Tarot...specifically, actual Tarot readings and their months-long progression afterwards.

From an aspiring British Rock Band, a cowboy with author ambitions to 'The Mad Hatter"-- Josie tells me that writing Easy Tarot Reading was quite the nail-biting roller-coaster ride!

Josie 200b I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to Josie's book. I loved her Easy Tarot and, as you might know, she contributed a heartfelt BIT Tarot Snapshot to my first book Back in Time Tarot (about her "baby" leaving the nest).

You can pre-order Josie's upcoming book Easy Tarot Reading from Amazon at this link.

How many of you want me to interview Josie for my blog? What questions would you like me to ask her? Feel free to weigh in at the comments section below!

Book Gems #1 - Psychic Tarot

Gems Book Gems is a new feature on the Renaissance Soul Ablaze Blog. Since I don't have time to review every book that crosses my desk, this will be a great way for you to get a taste of a book by reading an excerpt that I find to be compelling, eloquent, insightful, informative, provocative or plain ol' artistic. Of course, I may very well end up reviewing the book itself eventually!

The very first Book Gem is from Nancy Antenucci and Melanie Howard's Psychic Tarot. When I read this portion on intuition, I breathed out a hearty YES!

Psy tarot cover Using tarot and the Sight is about making choices that facilitate healthy growth. When people don't want to see the "bad things", it's almost like they're saying, "I don't want to take ownership of some lousy choices I'm making right now". And sometimes people don't. Seeing the bad things can be almost as scary as seeing death, because that usually means a change is need in your life. As for being afraid of death, there's no preparation for it except living well. The point of psychic tarot is not to predict death. It is to help you or a client to live life more fully.

I LOVE the part about "living well", don't  you? We never know when our time may be up, but we can sure make the decision to live if this moment may be our last.

So tell me, dear readers, how do you like the Book Gems feature? Want to see more? What genres do you prefer? Any books you'd like to see excerpted? Feel free to comment and let me know!

Purple Cover for Kindle (That ROCKS!)

Purple kindle If you're looking for a beautiful, secure cover for your Kindle, check out this purple M-Edge Executive Jacket!

I bought this cover to go with my 3G graphite-colored 3rd generation Kindle and absolutely LOVE it.

My Kindle nestles snugly and securely in the four strapped corners and the cover itself adds hardly any weight to the device. The inside of the cover is this plush gray pseudo-suede fabric, so you won't have to worry about it scratching the Kindle's screen.

There's a "belt" from the back that fits within the recessed area on the front, keeping the Kindle safely enclosed.

The purple cushioned cover is actually a tad lighter (and prettier!) in color than what the image shows (a lovely jewel-toned plum color) and the jacket almost looks like a stylish clutch purse.

If you're looking for a stylish, secure Kindle cover--and you love purple--you'll be very happy with this M-Edge Kindle Jacket!
