    Book Review – Sleep Tight: Illustrated Bedtime Stories & Meditations to Soothe You to Sleep by Alison Davies, with illustrations by Alexandra Kern

    Book Review Sleep Tight Illustrated Bedtime Stories & Meditations to Soothe You to Sleep by Alison Davies with illustrations by Alexandra Kern Publishers: Leaping Hare Press 128 Pages Publication Date: 4/13/2021     As a lifelong insomniac, I was really excited to receive this book for reviewing. I thought it was going to be a guide to how to get to sleep when one is anxious or manic, how to turn off one’s racing brain and get the rest so badly needed; how to stay asleep and what to do – and not do – if awoken; and what to do during the day to ensure good sleep at night.…

    Book Review – The Little Witch’s Book of Spells by Ariel Kusby, Illustrator Olga Baumert

    Book Review The Little Witch’s Book of Spells by Ariel Kusby Illustrator Olga Baumert Chronicle Books 134 Pages     If this book existed in 1965, I wouldn’t have had to wait until I was 50 to realize I am a witch. Ariel Kusby explains in the introduction, “You are a witch if you feel somehow different or special, and believe that within your uniqueness lies your power.” Throughout history, witches have “differed from the norm.” They have worshipped nature, owned many cats, and been healers, alchemists, quirky artists, and magick practitioners. Ariel wrote the book to help youth 8 to 12 see their own magic, and to offer tools…

    Getting Spacey with Tarot – Interview with Laura Loup

    “It’s a fairly interesting experience, pulling your own cards,” said Laura Loup, illustrator of the “Tarot in Space” deck. Calling herself “a professional humorologist,” she said in a recent interview at her Savannah shop, Cosmic Corner, “The whole idea was for it to be a fun deck, something that was lighthearted, still hard-hitting. There’s a Tower card, there’s a Death card, but they have a literal and a metaphorical silver lining.” She employs humor when navigating her own life’s ups and downs and created a tool to allow others to do the same, making that silver lining – in the form of shiny silver holographic edges – important to her.…
