My dear friend ChaosFay is in dire straits.  She is in a lot of pain and requires an expensive surgery to restore the use of her wrist:

I'm begging for your helpI desperately need wrist surgery to repair a torn ligament.  It tore a little over five years ago but was improperly diagnosed as arthritis due to stiffness, pain, and a grinding sound when I rotate my wrist.  The grinding and pain are caused by one end of the ligament getting between the bones of my wrist.  The ligament is 100% torn, and the MRI scan I had done in July 2016 there appears to be scar tissue and a lot of damage.  If I don't get surgery done I'll develop osteoarthritis in my wrist, which in turn will result in a lot more problems.
My insurance, Medicare, will cover nearly the entire cost of the surgery.  The out-of-pocket expenses will range from $700 to $2000, but we don't know exactly due to possible complications that may arise while in surgery as well as during recovery.  I won't be setting up an appointment to speak to the doctor and surgeon because my insurance won't cover the entire cost.  That appointment will likely cost me $150

She is a phenomenal artist with very reasonably-priced jewelry and quilting work, which you can buy from her on Etsy.  You can also donate to her directly here.

If anyone can help, I will be very grateful.  It breaks my heart to know she is suffering.  

I am giving away jewelry to those who help.  Anyone who donates $20 or more may choose any 1 piece out of my Still For Sale Gallery on a first-come-first-serve basis:…

RIP Tanith Lee

Most of you probably aren't familiar with Tanith Lee, which is truly a crime. She is positively one of the most wonderful authors in the entire world, an unrecognized genius, whose words are gems and whose sentences are goldmines. She is a shining star in my sky, and a few days ago, she died.

I made a pendant for her about a year ago, inspired by her novel The Birthgrave. I wanted to mail it to her, but never heard back. She fought several hard battles with cancer, which I assume is the monster that slayed her in the end. I never got to say "thank you" to her for her amazing work.

But she's still a shining star in my sky, and will be forever.

If you haven't read any of her books, I urge you to do so. I don't know what inspires me more, her exquisite prose poetry or her persistent refrain of rebellion and the search for authenticity and individuality. I hope that someday she gains the recognition she deserved in her lifetime, and that her spirit lives on somewhere as magickal as the worlds she put on the page.


I wrote a book!

This isn't your typical go-on-a-magic-quest-and-fight-dragons fantasy. It's a gritty drama with a fantasy backdrop where everything is just a shade off of familiar. It's a story about violent, compromised people struggling to live and love in a world entrenched in moral ambiguity and spiritual emptiness. Here is the short summary:

Talystasia stands divided.  An ancient wall runs down the city’s center, and for centuries, the Lorens and Telyras have vied for dominance.  But their endless feud is not the only schism that runs through these pages.  Here, loyalties are fractured and hearts and minds are also divided.  Will Andreas Telyra and Roselia Loren triumph on the war grounds within, or will they succumb to the cycle of violence and spiral even deeper into the dark?

"Art and life really are the same, and both can only be about a spiritual journey, a path towards a re-union with a supreme creator, with god, with the divine; and this is true no matter how unlikely, how strange, how unorthodox, one's particular life path might appear to one's self or others at any given moment." - Genesis Breyer P-Orridge
