Guest Blog Giveaway: July 31-Aug 25, 2012:  You’re invited to write a guest blog for “The Barbed Pentacle”.   The blog entry can be fiction, non-fiction, poetry, artwork, or music.  It can be about pretty much anything as long as it’s gritty and Pagan (I’ll leave the meaning of those two words up to your interpretation).  You can publish under your name or a pen name.  There’s no word limit, but I do reserve the right to illustrate your blog with pictures that may or may not have anything to do with your blog entry.  I will accept entries from today until August 15.  Please email your submissions to chirp_sparrow@yahoo.com with “Guest entry” in the subject line.  Everybody who sends something in will be entered to win a “Self Love or Love Somebody Else” kit.  The more you send in, the more times your name is entered.

All Tied Up

I’ve been a little tied up lately, suspended between all my different worlds and responsibilities.  However, now that May(hem) will be over soon, things should calm down some and my bonds will be loosened.

The winner of the Erotic Sensations (http://eroticsensations.us/) three candle gift package is Catherine W.!  Please email me your mailing address at chirp_sparrow@yahoo.com.  A big thank you to Erotic Sensations for being a sponsor of the Barbed Pentacle the last couple of weeks and for sponsoring our giveaway.

The winner of the Barbed Pentacle prize pack is Bones!  Please email me your mailing address at chirp_sparrow@yahoo.com.

There’s lots of fun blogs in store.  Just because I’ve been in bondage, doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy writing!  In the next week or so, we’ll finish up the “May You Never Thirst” series.  Then, we’ll start examining hunting and Paganism.  If you hunt, fish, or trap, and you’re Pagan, please email at chirp_sparrow@yahoo.com.  I’d love to interview you.  Also, along with the hunting series, look for a review of Tonia Brown’s new novel, Skin Trade (http://thebackseatwriter.blogspot.com/)!

Soon, not too soon, but soon, the Barbed Pentacle will be moving to a new home.  Yes, things will be different, and you may not like them at first, but it will be a safer place–with far less censorship–to explore the grittier side of Paganism.  Look for more information on the new site address in the coming weeks.

New drawing items will be posted soon!

These folks are all tied up too:
