I have one short story out that deals with a psychic. But Spirit of Seduction only scratches the supernatural surface.
The new series will go way deeper into several occult topics, the first of which is wiccan magic, or witchcraft.
I took a big step and signed up for a six-week course on basic wicca, which is turning out to be great. I've now attended an authentic wicca Samhain (pronounced sah-ween) ritual. I've also started devouring everything I can get my hands on about witchcraft, magic, casting spells and pagan rituals.
Frankly, the class is so much more interesting than anything I did in my years of collegiate learning. I don't know why I didn't take this step a long time ago. Next on my agenda will be research on the subject of the next book -- either reiki healing, tarot cards or astrology. I haven't worked up the outline yet.
What about you? What's the most extreme step you've taken in the name of research?
