|What Does the Future Hold for You?|
Can you really see your future in the cards? I’ve used the tarot––and other oracles including the I Ching, runes, and astrology––for many years. Whenever I have an important decision to make, seek clarity or direction, or just need a different perspective, I turn to my trusty tarot deck for guidance. It never fails to amaze me.
Nobody knows how old the tarot (pronounced tar OH) is or where it came from. The earliest tarot deck that still exists today was created in the mid-nineteenth century. We do know the tarot became popular during the Renaissance, especially in Italy. But tarot scholars believe this beautiful and mysterious oracle is much older, perhaps dating back to ancient Egypt. Some sources say gypsies brought the first tarot decks to Europe hundreds of years ago and used the cards to tell fortunes.
I was thrilled when RR’s Holly Schmidt invited me to write TAROTICA, my just-released erotic novel based on the tarot. The book is one woman’s lively, lusty journey of self-discovery as she travels cross country, meeting a colorful cast of characters who teach her the secrets of the 22 cards in the tarot’s major arcana.
Some people believe the ancient, mysterious, beautiful oracle called the tarot
holds the secrets to life.
Miranda Malone isn’t sure.
But she’s about to find out...
One of my favorite tarot artists, Lori Walls, creator of the exotic Tarot Erotica deck, called TAROTICA “a ripping read which works surprisingly well on a number of levels. I love your characterizations of the trumps, the interpretation of the Path, and of course, the erotic element.” (You tarot enthusiasts out there, I hope you’ll check out Lori’s card deck –– and my book!)
Also, if any of you find yourself in the wild and weird city of Austin, Texas the weekend of July 31-August 2, I’ll be speaking at the United Texas Tarot Conference. It’s going to be a fun time. Hope to see you there!
