“DMT and the Soul of Prophecy” ranks #1

Today “DMT and the Soul of Prophecy” ranks #1 in Amazon’s category of “Jewish mysticism.” I joined Facebook yesterday and sent out a mass mailing from the A-C entries in my address book. And Barnes & Noble is putting multiple copies of the book in about 500 of their superstores coast to coast.This initial enthusiastic response is gratifying.

DMT and the Soul of Prophecy arrives this month

DMT and the Soul of Prophecy arrives at online and brick-and-mortar bookstores this month. People are buying copies from online stores as well as my own site and a recent Publishers Weekly review of the manuscript is quite positive.

And since making the move in Spring of 2012, all of my energies have been focused on completing my book on prophetic states, and repairing my house which had suffered some over six years of renting it out. As my homepage announces, the book is done and will appear in the Fall. And my house is again comfortable and warm. Editing Read More …

I will never reach the level of familiarity with the Hebrew Bible and its notion of prophecy as I had with DMT and the psychedelic drugs.
