Witchy Ways

My new publicist at Headline wants me to start thinking about various topics that might interest “women’s magazines.” She’s especially excited to hear that I’m a practicing Witch and thought there might be a kernel of something in my religion that might make a witty, sound-byte, branding sort of bit we could capitalize.

Now, you’re probably screaming: “Don’t do it, Tate! Don’t sell out to the Man!” Yeah, I’m thinking about that, too, but on the other hand, the last thing I want to do is drop the ball on what is, for me, at least, a once in a lifetime opportunity to “break out.” Luckily, she seems sensitive to that concern, I think, because she says what she’s interested is not so much something that will sensationalize witchcraft, but which will show the average reader that Wiccans are people, too (actually, what she wrote was, “showing how normal and spiritual Wiccan practices are.”)

So... my question is, any ideas?

What would be the sort of thing you’d like to see me write about Witchcraft? Is there anything that you think would be especially good for mass consumption?

British Cover for Dead Sexy

Here's the British cover for Dead Sexy. It's pretty awesome, IMHO. Tall, Dark & Dead debuts across "the Pond" on Feb. 5, 2007 and is launching a new genre called "Chick Bit."

Nothing like a little pressure.
