…it pours! Every time we manage to get a little ahead, wham! The universe has another surprise for us.
With this week’s paycheck, and income this weekend from performing a wedding, and income next week for a lecture, we were supposed catch up with all our bills by Samhain. Then our black cat Bennie suddenly comes down with a mysterious ailment that might be irritable bowel syndrome (we’re changing his name to Stinky) but might be cancer, or might be something else equally dire. In order to find out, we wind up taking him to his regular vet, then to another one with better high tech diagnostic machines, and wham! We’re looking at $1800 in vet bills.
All this, just as we were about to begin an advertising campaign for our books on a New Age (opt-in only) emailing list, one that we hoped would (with only a 1% response rate) get us through the winter when there aren’t any festivals going on to pay money for workshops. For $150 we could reached 250,000 Pagan and New Age readers, at least a few of whom might not have all our books yet.
So we’re going to once again ask our regular readers and supporters to help out. Below are three different PayPal buttons, which will let you donate to our general work, Bennie’s hospital bills, or the advertising campaign. Any and all assistance will be gratefully appreciated by us and possibly by Bennie (he is a cat after all).
