Bible Belt Publisher Donates to Pagan Prison Ministry
NICEVILLE, Florida (April 03, 2008) â€“ Spilled Candy Books, a small publisher for the â€œspiritually eclectic,â€ has donated over $8000 in books to the Fire Dance Church of Wiccaâ€™s Pagan Prison Ministry.
â€œI wasnâ€™t even aware of the need for a pagan prison ministry,â€ said Lorna Tedder of Spilled Candy, â€œuntil author Gail Wood asked us to publish .Â Sheâ€™d written this wonderful guide, sharing chapter by chapter with pagan inmates to teach them about the Sacred Masculine and the many aspects of God. Â Christian ministries are common, especially here in the Bible Belt, but thereâ€™s little material available for the spiritual non-Christian in prison. Gail was fulfilling that need in her own way, and Iâ€™m following her example.â€
Tedder insisted something good must come from a personal and business â€œrough spotâ€ last fall.Â When Spilled Candy put some of its books out of print in August 2007, a common event in the publishing world, rumors spread on MySpace and throughout the pagan community that the tiny publisher must be going bankrupt. Â According to Tedder, bookstores and New Age shops returned stock for credit, coming closeâ€”but not quiteâ€”to ensuring the prophecy of financial failure.
Spilled Candy Enterprises, LLC, is a small, family-run business that continues to publish books about Wicca, shamanism, New Age Christianity, Spiritualism, Spirituality, and the Law of Attraction.Â Their website, http://www.spilledcandy.com, features free online reads, articles, and a blog for â€œthe spiritual electic.â€
