The Salmon in the Spring Released

Posted on Nov 6, 2009

Many bits of good news to share.  The Salmon in the Spring was officially released on November 1st and thanks to everyone who ordered it achieved an overall sales rank of #1300 on Amazon.com; reaching #1 in their Celtic Mythology section and the #2 position in Celtic Spirituality, beat only by John O’Donohue’s Anam Cara. Of course, Amazon.com sales ranks are fleeting and it has now returned to a more humble number. If you haven’t yet ordered your copy you can do so now from your favorite online retailer or directly from this website in the book section.

I’m extending the pre-order price of $14.95 until Monday. If you want to take advantage of it, now is the time to do so. It may temporarily take 1 to 2 weeks for books to ship depending on inventory, something which will soon be remedied. Also, the winner of the book raffle will be chosen this weekend and contacted by e-mail. Thanks to everyone who signed up for the newsletter.

In other news, there are two interviews with me about The Salmon in the Spring and my work in general. One is available in Druidic Dawn’s latest equinox newsletter which is freely downloadable in PDF form here:

The other, done by James Liter of The Druid’s Utterance website, is available here:

Finally, there are a few talks and workshops that are in the development stage and I hope to start adding them to the schedule soon. I can, however, briefly confirm that I’ll be giving two short talks at conferences. I’ll be speaking at the Integral Ecology conference hosted by California Institute of Integral Studies on November 20th and have just been told that my abstract for the 6th Conference on Current Pagan Studies has been accepted. The conference is from January 30th-31st hosted by Claremont Graduate University. The talk is titled “Wild Law and the Irish Goddess: Myth and Ecosystem as a Model of Sustainability.” I also promise more accessible and less academic events in the near future.
