I have been sending emails out to close friends and acquaintances who I have met over the years while running the Rune Secrets websites. I know there are many more out there than I could think up on my list, and I know there are folk who don't speak up much, or who are very new as members to the site, but connect with my work and would like to be involved more closely with me. Forgive me for missing you.

If you'd like to get in on the very beginnings of my new book "Questioning the Runes", I am going to be holding a modest fundraiser using Kickstarter. There are a number of financial goals, and a number of really incredible things I could do, depending on the mark we hit. For instance, redesigning the runesecrets.com site, putting the info from the first book up for free, recording an audiobook of "Questioning the Runes", and more. 

More importantly, the fundraiser includes rewards for you. You're helping create something, and supporters will eventually own that something. And I get to see who believes in my creative endeavor so much as to put money where their mouth is. That way I can speak often with those people and make sure the product, in this case a very profound work of spirituality, philosophy and psychology, fits the exact needs of the folk who helped build it. I think there's something magical about that, truly unique. 

I don't want to leave anyone out whose intuition is screaming 'involve me!'. Naturally I will get around to trying to include everyone -- I have a large email list and a very busy rune site to solicit the help I need. But the foundation of what I want to do requires close connections and support. Friends.

This is the time to think big and reach out. I'm posting this just to put it out there, to give the heads-up.

If you're interested, just comment. I have your access to your email address, so I'll send more details via email. 

Looking forward to hearing from you (and hope that the feeling is mutual)!

I am ready to give and I am exited to see a new book in the works. In the newly emerging net-economy

( crowd sourcing and founding and bit coins)  I am happy to see you reaching out.  In what other way's might the community pitch in? 

The first thing is to secure the necessary funds. I'm not in the position to bring the book out as fast as I'd desire, without money. I've never been in such a tight situation before, where my ability to be creative was limited by mundane necessity. It's uncomfortable, especially when I am writing really revelatory stuff right now.

The second thing is to reach out and communicate. I have been too closed in and introverted. I want to start talking over voice/video to my audience, and also some of us have been talking about radioshow/podcast appearances. The community can really help with that, and can help by following and sharing my work and blog posts and events and stuff.

The third thing is to find content on the site that should be included in the new book, as the Book of Rune Secrets was already almost completed when the community was first launched. This time I am certain there is a lot more substance online that could be adapted and expanded upon.

Related to this third point is that if anyone should like to contribute to the effort by submitting art or essays, that could be useful too. While renumeration may be difficult (unless the Kickstarter is wildly successful beyond what I can realistically expect), it would still mean the work is published and reaches a relevant audience.

I will create a page and a newsletter that really details exactly what I intend to accomplish with the project, and then anyone who helps fundraise and reach goals will reap the benefits (such as free digital copies, signed hardcovers, free audiobook/music if those stretch goals are reached) as they are completed.

I've placed large social media icons on the side of the .net site to connect with me on your favourite medium. I intend to post bits of my work, quotes and insights every day, and respond to messages for at least an hour a day as I write.

Today I wrote 20 pages, it was great. If I can keep that pace up while I fundraise, we're golden.
