I really enjoy bookstagrams, like a lot. They're a combination of books and photography. Some of them are so beautiful they're like art captured by art. So, I'm bringing back the Friday 5 featuring my 5 favorite bookstagrams in the last week with a Spring theme!

Scary Story Time: Ghost Haunting and Hunting in Colonial Williamsburg While Traveling with The Travelers

A Tarot Reader and a Skeptic Walk into a Magic Shop…

I took several wrong turns before I found it, tucked away just off a busy intersection next to a restaurant selling chicken, a place called Sticks and Stones. It's not necessarily where you expect to find a magic shop or, to be more accurate, a spiritual store. Although where do most people expect to find a store like this?

I wrote a book about witches (The Travelers) and it includes magic, prophecies, tarot readings and such.You know, the things witches are made of. As I wrote the book, I did a little bit of research on the internet regarding tarot cards and their meanings. Beyond that, I just used my imagination. Now, I'm working on book 2 of The Travelers and I want to take my research beyond the internet. What better way than to find a real tarot reader, right? Totally easy, right? Wrong.
