Just a heads up that I'm going dark for several weeks. I may still update posts/challenges but there will be no new content, not even Thursdays.

My Mom died and I'm taking each day as it comes, plus helping my Dad go through her stuff.

Jan 16 update: Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, is in the hospital for bypass surgery

Feb 19 update: MIL is home now :-D and slowly getting better. I'm still helping my Dad with Mom's stuff but since my brother is out of town, I'm spending 4 nights at his house every week for a month. It's MUCH closer to Dad's and they do meals together and hang out.

Mar 8 update: I'm having a blast with my Dad. MIL has gone back to the hospital

Basic Requirements: REVIEWS of at least one line. Any format, length, demographic.

Spirituality inspires us but seldom meets in one place. I invite all mystical content! Angels, energy healing, animal communication, astrology, chakras, faith. The paranormal (phenomena that exists): ghosts, extra-sensory abilities. From miracles, to haunted house or witch fiction: we gather all etherealness together!

There are several levels but knowing I'll be reading the Psy-changeling series at the very least, I'm going for . . . Third Eye . . . and hope to read 11 - 20 titles that count.

Hello Gina! I'm thrilled to have you in "Ethereal"! I've looked forward to folks discovering my triad of new groups. I wanted a wide open place for all the unseen realities of life; the only one I know without zombies, werewolves, vampires. ;)

Thanks for your nice write-up. I can't wait to see everyone's books. Warmly, Carolyn. http://cmriedel.wordpress.com/riedel-reading-themes/
