So one of the things that concerns me is that I kind of went overboard with Anthesteria. Things were already tight money-wise (my rent got raised, I’m taking a day off of work for the trip and I’ll be making a bunch of offerings as part of the process of formalizing my membership in House Sankofa) but Dionysos should be worshiped with wild abandon and this year especially I wanted to do Anthesteria in a lavish style. So I stupidly and irresponsibly spent money I didn’t have. I’m a Fool and the central tenet of morosophy is you do the work and things will turn out okay and if they don’t oh well, you’ve done the work and on to the next grand adventure! (This is also why I live alone and try to have my life as unentangled with my partners as possible — no one should suffer the consequences of the actions I have to take to do this work.) So I figured it was time to whore out my Muse again. (It’s okay, she’s that kind of girl. She likes it.)
For $15 I’ll write a poem on the topic of your choosing.
For $25 I’ll write an essay on the topic of your choosing.
For $30 I’ll write a short story on the topic of your choosing.
Also I’ll be sending the manuscript for my latest book Incantations of New Wine to my editor — the multitalented Dver — tonight once I finish Anthesteria. So I figured I’d give people the opportunity to preorder their copy now. $35 will get you a personally signed edition, shipped once we get copies back from the printer. (Which I’m guessing will be in late March or early April.)

In addition to having the opportunity to be a generous patron of the arts remembered in the same illustrious company as Maecenas and the Famiglia de’ Medici you will have my eternal gratitude.
