We here at Vesica Publishing have decided to buck the trend. While all other prices are rocketing up under the so-called “cost of living crisis” – don’t get us started on that – we’re slashing the cost of our paperbacks waaaay down, as our gift of gratitude to you for your support!
Our Summer Solstice Sale is live now and will continue until July 1st. All the book prices are cut in half – most are now less than a tenner in UK money and $12 in American. We would have liked to have gone the whole hog and give them away for this two-week period, but Amazon needs to get their “fat on the bone”, and so half the original price is as low as we can go without giving Jeff Bezos a panic attack!
So if you’re looking for just the right book to curl up with under an apple tree in an enchanted orchard this summer, or to take to the beach, here is a short synopsis of each one and also a way for you to discover which one would fit your reading preferences best.
Let’s tell you about them.
WHICH BOOK IS BEST FOR YOU?
THE AZTEC RULER MONTEZUMA apparently believed that chocolate was the food of the gods, and so that might account for why we’ve invariably found that seekers of the eternal Mysteries tend to fall into two groups: Those who love to eat chocolate cake, already baked and sliced, and those who prefer to make it themselves first, by following a recipe complete with a list of measured ingredients and accurate oven temperatures and timings. So my books cater for both types of readerships.
If you’re the sort that just loves to be instantly transported via a taste bud explosion of deliciously rich cacao filled with creamy caramel sweetened with treacle, then you may be best suited to our fictional books which, within the first paragraph, will pull the rug from under your cognitive feet and turn it into a magic carpet to convey you straight into the Never Never Lands of the Celtic Twilight. Here, you will meet many of the author, Annie Dieu-Le-Veut’s, spirit guides who will plant seeds in your subconscious mind that will flower and fruit into wisdom and knowledge in the Night Gardens of your dreams.
However, if all that sounds far too woo-woo not to mention scarily out-of-control, and you prefer to remain in the driving seat, then you will need our non-fictional books. These are no-nonsense, practical step-by-step guides into the eternal Mysteries that honour the parameters of the modern Western intellectual model and meet your cerebral cortex’s needs to square off any new ideas with historical research and material evidence.
THE DRAGON WHISPERER’S SON
THE FIRST BOOK of The Glastonbury Chronicles recounts the rite-of-passage to manhood adventures of the child of Gwyddion and Arianrhod. The very name ‘Gwyddion’ means ‘wise one of the forests’, and so who better to turn each walk in the countryside into a magical mystery tour to a dragon’s cave of esoteric treasures?
As we follow his son through the trials and challenges designed to help him develop the cunning and the wisdom he will need to fill his father’s shoes, we also benefit from the teachings he receives on bird magic, flower magic, tree magic, star magic and weather magic. In this way, we undergo a similar metamorphosis. So we are not the same person that we were when we first entered this forest and we may even begin whispering to dragons ourselves…
But this is not just a tale about magic …
Each chapter of The Dragon Whisperer’s Son is devoted to bringing to life one of the twelve psychological subconscious archetypes – such as The Ruler, The Lover, The Sage, The Magician and The Fool – making every episode of an object lesson about what happens when a human gets stuck in one of their shadows.
So you may recognise lost parts of your self in those Shadowlands, and when you do, it will nourish the seeds of your dreams and visions, and help you find a way through to wholeness.
You can buy The Dragon Whisperer’s Son here for half price during the Summer Solstice Sale, and for the same knockdown price in your own country through Amazon and any reputable online bookseller.
THE BRIGHT WORLD OF THE GODS
IN THE SECOND BOOK of The Glastonbury Chronicles, you will once again join with the twin souls Gwyddion and Arianrhod and follow their escapades across worlds within worlds as they continue to grow in their spiritual realisations and to heal their past lives. In this way, you will also benefit from the lessons they learn as they meet the challenges necessary for their alchemical inner growth which will lead them to full spiritual enlightenment.
The Bright World of the Gods is a twisting, romantic adventure abounding with archetypal characters that have stepped straight out of the Shadowlands of the Celtic Twilight such as Arawn, the Lord of the Underworld, Elen of the Trackways, Gwyn ap Nudd, Bridie, Creiddylad, Taliesen, Morgan the Fae and the Old Man of the Sea, Manawydan, whose golden dragon ship is the only vehicle that can cross dimensions.
So you may just want to enjoy this epic tale on a superficial level, as a beautiful love story full of weaving, intriguing mystery tours and thrilling ferris wheel rides – which is fine. But those looking for keys to open fairy doorways into deeper esoteric teachings will also find them here along with the instructions on how to unlock them.
Either way, you’re welcome just to relax and wander through the wondrous hills and dales of The Bright World of the Gods, and let its enchanted flowers seed the gardens of your own Dreamscapes so that it can do its magic there and give you insights into your own destiny – and the meaning of your life.
You can buy The Bright World of the Gods here at half price during the Summer Solstice Sale, or in your own country at the same knockdown prices through Amazon and any other reputable online bookseller.
THE GRAIL MYSTERIES
THE THIRD BOOK of The Glastonbury Chronicles is a veritable magic carpet ride through the Shadowlands of the Celtic Twilight in which the trials met by the characters mirror our own inner challenges that we have to face along the winding, serpentine journey to self-sovereignty and wholeness.
In The Grail Mysteries, we follow the romantic adventures across worlds within worlds of the twin souls Arianrhod and Gwyddion. And we are enlightened by the Virgo Teachings received by a prostitute living in post-Roman Glastonbury, whose late middle-age is utterly transformed when she discovers that she comes from a long line of hierodules and is thus a true queen.
The Grail Mysteries is an account of her awakening as she learns that a real royal queen is not necessarily one who is anointed with oil on her forehead by the Archbishop of Canterbury. It is one who carries the fairy blood and who is anointed by the inner elixirs that flow from the awakening of the Black and Gold serpents during shamanic sex magic with the Divine.
We learn with that an authentic queen only wears a crown on her head to symbolise that the crown in her cranium has been alchemically fired up into the colours of peacock by the Red and White serpentine drops falling on to her pineal gland, or Third Eye, which gives her greater vision and wisdom.
In this way, a genuine queen holds the inner Crown Jewels – the treasures of the nation, which have been passed into her safekeeping by the spirits of the land, otherwise known as the Fae.
Along with many of the characters you have come to know and love in the previous two books, you will also join Myrddin (Merlin) and the dwarves in their quest to bury the Thirteen Treasures of Britain for the protection of the sovereignty of the land. It is a race against time as Bricriu of the Poison Tongue and Vlak the Dragon Slayer furiously use every magical means possible – including the Eye of Gonosz – to stop them and steal it.
You can buy The Grail Mysteries here for half price during the Summer Solstice Sale, or in your own country at the same knockdown prices through Amazon and any other reputable online bookseller.
STORIES IN THE STARS
In Stories in the Stars, you will learn that ancient myths are like Trojan horses in that they carry our ancestors’ voices with spiritual messages that they buried in astrological and alchemical metaphors. Over thousands of years, these orally-transmitted wisdom stories have been twisted and bastardised into fake histories in order to serve various and changing political imperatives.
However, our ancestors were wise enough to draw these myths out in the stars, because while political mindsets will ever dictate the ebb and flow of the tides of man on the world stage, the stars are always with us.
Once you learn how easy it is to decode these stories, so that they are able to “speak to you” in your own life, you will be able to understand better the ancient path that been trodden for countless millennia towards spiritual enlightenment, and you will feel bolstered and heartened as you go forwards along your own way.
You can buy Stories in the Stars here for half price during the Summer Solstice Sale, or on Amazon in your own country for the same knockdown prices, or through any reputable online bookseller.
STORIES IN THE SUMMERLANDS
In Stories in the Summerlands, Annie Dieu-Le-Veut shares her shamanic insight into the hidden esoteric treasures buried in an enchanted enclosure of hills and vales in Somerset, England known as Avalon.
As you are guided along a pilgrimage into the secret places of this esoteric landscape, you will come upon the real site of Arthur’s grave, and the location of the recipe for the Philosopher’s Stone, which the medieval alchemist John Dee told his patrons he’d found in Glastonbury. You will also come to understand the metaphorical meanings of the stories about Jesus and his uncle, Joseph of Arimathea who, as Blake’s poem told us, “walked upon England’s mountains green.”
You don’t have to come to Avalon to enjoy this book: once you start reading, Avalon will come to you, wherever you are in the world. And it will give you a deeper understanding about how the story of your spiritual evolution is told in the stars and then impregnated into the land itself, to remind you of your destiny.
You can buy Stories in the Summerlands here for half price during the Summer Solstice Sale, or on Amazon at the same knockdown price in your own country or through any reputable online bookseller.
THE SACRED SEX RITES OF ISHTAR
The Sacred Sex Rites of Ishtar shows how shamanic sex has been used, throughout history, as an alchemical catalyst to fruit superior intelligence and self empowerment that is a direct result of interacting with beings which inhabit a parallel universe to this one – another dimension – from whom man has traditionally gained his knowledge about his place and purpose on Earth and in the cosmos.
In ancient times, the ability to tap into this superior wisdom through sex magic was transmitted to kings and pharaohs by one who was in touch with these extra-dimensional beings or lifeforms, who are also known as the spirits. On the night of his cornonation, under a Full Moon, the newly-crowned ruler would lie with a cuen, which is the Anglo-Saxon source of the word “queen”.
In The Sacred Sex Rites of Ishtar, you will read all about the literary, artistic and historical evidence for this practice of rulers, and then learn about the way for the spiritual seeker to visit these other dimensions where they are taught the practice of sacred sex magic from their own spirit guides.
