So here is the skinny on the book folks :) : Its been sent to a respectable UK publishing company that deals in occult books. I’m not sure how long the process will be for the final editing, etc. ....but its completed!
“Its amazing how a few months go by since the last time you THOUGHT it was finished.”
I know, I know. It turned out to be much larger than I ever intended but really wanted to make this something the reader could USE and explore this art in depth. Since this is my first book and first attempt at offering full results of my own magical workings, I wanted to make it as complete as possible without dictating a narrow, “my way or the highway” type approach. I explain and show photos of my actual tools and how each were made, and what my results were. I even offer some variety for the reader to consider which is founded in research but I haven’t tried personally (yet). I hope many will be pleased at the surprising similarities to other arts which paints this practices in a broader and richer spectrum.
My friends and fellow authors/ respectable magicians/ and gentlemen who reviewed the MS offered fantastic feedback and assistance. Without a doubt, they helped the MS become what it is. I’m excited and also nervous for how my readers will take the material. Its not written by a scholar as much as a quirky, traditionalist, mage. A project I’ve poured my soul in consistently for quite a while now.
With that, I leave you with a few photos of my work not necessarily included in the book ;) Just a taste of what treasure awaits the magician who wishes to Draw Spirits into CRYSTALS.

Sorry to keep everyone waiting so long....hopefully....it will be all worth it.
I hope to hear from you magicians who meet similar success utilizing this system as I have.
