Tarot Tells the Tale … new edition
I am sad to announce that Llewellyn has let my book Tarot Tells the Tale go out of print. But rather than see this as a problem, I’m seeing it as an opportunity, so I’m working to re-issue it in a revised edition through createspace.com, which is where I am publishing my books Tarot Affirmations and The Original Tarot Coloring Book. I’m re-editing the text and creating a new cover. I’m not sure yet how long that may take (a month maybe?), but I’ll give you all a heads up when the time draws near. In the meantime, though, what this means is that I won’t have much time to do posts about the Tarot’s Daily Spiritual Message.
Besides making this announcement, I am writing today to get suggests from you all about the new edition. Is there any material you would like to see added to the book? I can’t promise anything, but suggestions are welcome.
Also, do you have suggestions about the title? I don’t think the old title, Tarot Tells the Tale, worked well to attract people to the book (which is the main purpose of a title). The problem has been that wide the audience of novices isn’t attracted to it. They see that title and think, I don’t know what the heck that’s about, so I’ll move on to a book called ‘How to Read Tarot Cards Quick and Easy’ (or whatever). And honestly, Tarot Tells the Tale is a book that’s great for beginners, even though I’ve found that more advanced readers love it too. The intention of re-titling this book is to make it more appealing to a wide audience, so what title do you think will help sell this book?
UPDATE: This book (titled Tarot Reading Explained) is now available both in paperback and Kindle form.
