Day 9: We Always… #DoMagick

Have you ever just had one of those days where no matter how hard you tried to shake it, and no matter what you do to make it better, you feel like everything is a pointless exercise in either overcoming obstacles, or having an abundance of patience (often for those situations or people who don’t deserve it) for a warm fuzzy that never manifests?  That’s precisely what today has been like.

I did a lot of promo today. Let’s just say that today’s promo wasn’t nearly as well received as yesterday’s. Weird how that works, but it is what it is.

Also, shortly after posting last night’s post, my friend of six years, Connie Kline, passed away.  But I won’t sit here and lament over her. She would have hated that. Instead – let’s pull today’s Tarot:

Six of Wands: Learning to accept acclaim and admiration graciously. I am working on it. I don’t know why, but I have always had a hard time accepting compliments at all. I often have to force myself to smile and accept them, because oftentimes what’s going through my head is, “OMG – this person thinks I’m someone else…”  LOL!   Hey – I was once mistaken for the author Stephenie Meyer. No joke!  I have a severe case of impostor syndrome when it comes to my fiction writing.  It’s a little easier with the non-fiction because I’m confident that I know Daemonolatry and Magick like the back of my hand. With fiction, I’m still learning (even after so many years writing) and still trying to perfect my craft.

And that, as they say, is that.

Steph is an award winning and bestselling author of thrilling steamy and paranormal romances, dark urban fantasy, occult horror-thrillers, cozy mysteries, contemporary romance, sword and sorcery fantasy, and books about the esoteric and Daemonolatry. A Daemonolatress and forever a resident of Smelt Isle, she is happily married and cat-mom to three pampered house cats. Her muse is a demanding sadistic Dom who often keeps her up into the wee hours of the morning. You can contact her at
