We decided to make the first of the month, every month, Excerpt Day!

The Pagan and the Pen has a lot of authors writing for us. We have artists, musicians, poets and loads of other wonderful professions. The first of the month will be their day to give you something free from the talented things that they do.

If they have a book or books out, then this will be their day to post an excerpt (a sample chapter, or partial, or tidbit) from that book. (Something which hasn’t been posted a million other places.) They can include a book trailer (I love those) and whatever other cool thing–(maybe a contest so you can win a free book, etc?) HINT HINT AUTHORS!!!

For those who work in theater, music, art…this is also their chance to chalk up some freebies (video, samples, sneak peeks, news) and drag us all into their world.


Now this will only happen on the first of every month, so keep watch!


And thanks to all those who contribute ahead of time.

And thanks to all the readers who keep coming back for more!

What’s Coming in February Announcements

January was a busy month here at The Pagan & the Pen. Thanks to our writers who worked really hard bringing us on-Theme and off-Theme articles! And a HUGE thank you  to our readers who stopped by, commented, dropped a Tweet, and or read them.

If you want to know who will be blogging in February, about the 5th, I will have it listed here: Who’s Blogging When? Calendar

So what’s going on for February?



The Pagan & the Pen will be adding ‘Pagan’ Non-Fiction writers to it’s team. That means if you ARE a Pagan and write non-fiction of ANY kind….and would like to join us, then we would LOVE to have you.  Please contact C.H. Scarlett at :

If you follow us on Twitter, then you know I sent out a tweet asking our Followers (whom we proudly follow back) to send in their requests of Themes for upcoming months. Which means, if you haven’t done so already, you can DIRECT MESSAGE us anytime or drop a comment here tossing us an idea of what YOU want to read.

We usually do ‘ first come first serve.’ However, when I sent the tweet, in a quick two seconds flat, we received a unique request from soulsprite asking that we base a theme on Urban Paganism. (Everyone else who sent in requests, don’t worry, we will be doing yours too!)


So for February, think…. ‘Pagan in the City.’ 


Since so many Pagans do not live in country areas, but rather apartment buildings, neighborhoods, and where being a Pagan may not be easy to keep from wandering eyes, we hope to dedicate this month to the issues you may have to deal with under these circumstances.


We also have two new people joining us this month!


Marie Dees– a fabulous Pagan Author that we are excited about!




Megan—I don’t have this lady’s bio up yet but Megan is a spiritual feminist and will be posting things on Women Empowerment, Women Issues and so forth!


We say good-bye to Kelley Heckart in being our

We welcome, however, a new Artist:

Our very first Pagan Artist of the Month Tom Brown has opened The Moth Festival here on WordPress. Tom is not an author for P&P, but since he is one of our favorite artists, we continue to stalk him, and what he’s doing! *wink*


The Pagan & the Pen still needs more reviewers! Our book lists are growing and so are our followers. If you are interested, please check out Request a Review and drop us an email.



Ok, that’s it so far!!!!! Thank you again for everyone who enjoys the articles and says so,….and to everyone who has spread the word. Now fingers crossed that we will keep you entertained this month!!!!!

Announcements: Changes Concerning Review Requests

Just letting everyone know a few changes we have made.


We have a new email address for those wanting a review. Please see Request A Review for the new addy. Yep, Yahell just wasn’t cutting it.

While we are still reviewing Fiction only—we have also opened up our doors to Poetry as well. One of our Part-time Reviewers Brew-Hilda has admitted her infatuation for the struggling path of the poet. She wants us to warn you however, she is and can be a tough critic.  But since she has a great love for this art, and realizes that it is very difficult for a poet to be noticed, then she is willing to help.
