Tarot of Bones Review!

In going through the many, many tabs on my browser, I found a review for the Tarot of Bones I hadn’t yet had a chance to share! Setjataset has a lovely review of the deck and book at https://setjataset.wordpress.com/2019/01/10/tarot-deck-review-the-tarot-of-bones/

Damaged Tarot Deck and Book at a Discount!

Hi, folks! So I have three Tarot of Bones decks and one Tarot of Bones Companion Book that were damaged in transit, and so I’m selling them at a discount! One corner of the cover and pages of the book are bent, but it’s otherwise usable. The decks all have minor damage to the boxes; the cards are likely fine, but there’s a small chance of a little bit of corner damage to the cards. The book is $14 (normally $20), and the decks are $28 each (normally $35) plus shipping to wherever you are. If you want to buy any of these, email me at lupa.greenwolf(at)gmail(dot)com – thank you!

Tarot of Bones Daily Draw – 6-13-18

Today’s Tarot of Bones daily draw is the Eight of Swords. I know you feel like you’re between a rock and a hard place (and both of them have pointy teeth.) But you were made for this. You have the experience to navigate this tricky time, and the ability to come out the other side if not unscathed, then at least not destroyed. Don’t let fear keep you from making the journey through, because if you stay still you will end up crushed and eaten (metaphorically, of course.) Just keep moving, and let instinct and muscle memory guide you.

Want Tarot of Bones T-shirts, Prints and More?

The Tarot of Bones Redbubble shop is officially open! You can get Tarot of Bones card art on a variety of items from clothing to prints to bags and more. Right now the shop has the six cards that were featured in the two IndieGoGo campaigns–Empress, Hierophant, Magician, Justice, Ace of Pentacles and Two of Pentacles–but I’ll be adding the rest over the weeks to come.

All Redbubble orders will be fulfilled by that company; they will not be shipped by me. You can still buy the Tarot of Bones deck and book, as well as Tarot of Bones readings, directly from me at the Tarot of Bones website shop. And if you would like to see the deck and book in your local metaphysical shop or bookstore, direct the owner/buyer to my wholesale information page.

And just as a reminder–this is a 100% self-published endeavor, so every purchase helps an individual artist/author keep the bills paid 🙂

Tarot of Bones Book Cover is Done!

Well, I’ve never actually designed a book cover before–just like I’ve never designed a tuck box–but after hours of channeling election stress into art I now have a book cover that I really, really hope will work in CreateSpace’s system. (Given that I used their template, it had better work!) I won’t be sharing it publicly til I have a printed proof in hand, because I’m cautious that way. But I promise I’ll give y’all a peek as soon as I can.

I’m still waiting for the physical proofs of the cards to arrive, but believe you me I have plenty to keep me occupied til then! More news as I get it.

Mini-Update – Proofs!

Just a real quick update–the printer was REALLY fast and sent the digital proofs to me on Thursday. I looked them over–they’re lovely, but I requested a physical proof as well, just to be completely sure I’m happy with the cards. I should have that in early November, and once I’ve approved everything they can get going on printing the final decks!

Yes, I will post a few pics of the physical proofs (assuming they don’t look absolutely terrible, which I highly doubt will happen.) And once I’ve approved the physical proofs I’m going to open up general preorders for the deck and book. Those preorders will ship AFTER the 300+ IndieGoGo orders have shipped out, but I’m planning to kidnap friends to help me with packing and shipping orders so we should be able to get that done pretty quickly.

Anyway, will keep ya posted as things continue!

….And Files Are Sent!

I just got done sending the files to the printer!!! Woohoo!!!! This includes all 79 cards (Happy Squirrel included), card back and tuck box!

So now I wait for them to approve the files and do digital proofing. They said “8-12 weeks after digital proofing” for me to have the cards in my hot little hands. I asked whether they think I could have them by PantheaCon, since that’s the first big pagan event I’ll be at after I estimated the cards’ arrival, so I’ll see what they think of that deadline. Fingers, toes and eyes crossed!

I’m also going to ask for a physical proof once they’ve done the digital proof–can’t be too careful! So worse comes to worst, I’ll at least have the proof to show off, with the real deal not too far behind.

So now….I wait. And also design the final book cover. And update the images in the interior of the book with pictures of the actual cards instead of placeholders. And get the prints for IndieGoGo perks off to the printers. And finish making the leather pouches also reserved as perks. And other perks. Perks. Did I mention perks? Oh, and somewhere in all that I’ll be launching preorders (note: preordered decks/books will be shipped AFTER I get all the IndieGoGo packages shipped out.)

Still, I’ve been waiting for this day for many months, and it’s THIS MUCH CLOSER to being real!!!!

Mini-Update!

Just a really brief note to let you all know that I proofread the Tarot of Bones cards once more to be sure everything is correct with the layout and text, and then save them all to .psd format. I’m very proud to say that I only had to make a few teensy changes here and there!

I sent an email earlier today to the printer asking for instructions on transferring files over and paying for the printing, and I suspect I’ll get a reply in the next day or so. Depending on when they get back to me and how involved everything is I may or may not get that all done this week, but if not this one then definitely next!
