Not wanting this to be your standard promo – nothing ordinary will do for this Tarot reader – I thought it would be a great idea to take you behind the scenes to the creation of our book. So instead of beyond it, I’m going to take you behind it, and back to February 14th – Valentines Day, 2008. Continue reading Beyond the Celtic Cross – Behind the Scenes
