“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.” --Friedrich Nietzsche 

Seen Dancing is a collection of essays and stories as they occurred to a spiritual being having a human experience. When you walk a spiritual path, you may encounter people who do not understand you. That is their short-sightedness rather than your shortcoming. Their lack of spiritual experience in no way nullifies the bounty of yours. There are people engaged in spiritual discussions who have opinions and beliefs based in dogma, and then are there are people engaged in spiritual discussions who have experiences. Just because those experiences vary, it doesn't mean that they are contradictory. When beliefs are built upon dogma, conflict arises. When beliefs are built upon experiences, community arises. It is the author's hope that these stories and essays will build community.

The third book in the Sappho's Corner Poetry Series has been released and has been a best-selling hot new title in Amazon's gay poetry section. It made it to the number 3 spot at least, making it the number one selling new lesbian title, since the only two books higher were gay male-oriented. Congratulations to all the Sappho's Corner poets who have helped make this happen by generating the excitement about its release. Thanks also goes to P.R. Lambros for the stunning photo of that beautiful red rose and to Ngaire Curtin for the back cover artwork. While I like all of the covers so far, I confess that this one is the most dramatic and eye catching.

Announcing the Official Release of Demeter's Daughter, the Long-Awaited Third Book in the Goddess Series by Beth Mitchum!

Demeter’s Daughter
is the third book in a contemporary series by Beth Mitchum.  Each book is dedicated to a different Goddess. Although the Goddesses represented here are all ancient Greek Goddesses, there is no connection between the books and the land of Greece, except in a metaphorical sense.  The books are dedicated to the spiritual energy these Goddesses can bring to our lives by helping us to become all that we are meant to be.      

Set in the late 1990’s on the cusp of the internet revolution, the series begins with Artemisian Artist, where we meet four women who become connected to each other in sometimes unexpected ways.  In the first book, we see their lives through the eyes of Liz Higgins, an artist who is just beginning to find success in her work.  In the second book, Gaia’s Guardian, we follow the thread from the perspective of Gerry Pearcy, a Lakeland police officer. In this third book, we follow the narrative from the perspective of Melissa Higgins, a student at the University of Central Florida and Liz’s younger sister. While attending college, Melissa deals with strong maternal urges and a sometimes confusing love life. Melissa’s life takes a puzzling metaphysical turn while she grapples with the sudden return of her mother, who vanished when Melissa was a toddler. The series reaches its exciting conclusion in Hestia’s Healer, which is told by Dr. Terri Jackson, the fourth character in this odd quartet of friends and family. 

Each of the books focuses on one of the women and is narrated by that character—Liz, Gerry, Melissa, and Terri.  Together they weave a tapestry of women’s empowerment through self-growth and strong relationships.
