GUEST POST: Allegories of the Tarot


First of all, I'd like to thank Donna for generously hosting me here.

My name is Annetta Ribken, and I am a professional editor of over eighty indie novels.

That means I might be slightly crazy, but I love my job.

For a long time, I had an idea of putting together an anthology of stories based on the Major Arcana of the Tarot. I know and work with so many amazing writers, I just knew if I could get them all together we could create something fabulous. I'm happy to say I was right.

The stories are incredible. Many different genres are represented, and it was fascinating to see the direction in which each writer took their chosen card. Their talent just blew me away. You'll find a cross section of new and established award winning talent in this table of contents, along with some stellar fiction. Fiction you won't find anywhere else.

I am so proud and ecstatic to introduce these writers to you.

Treat yourself this Halloween and see what lurks around the corner. You won't be disappointed.


Twenty-two cards…
…each an individual splinter of the human psyche.

Twenty-two writers…
…honing each splinter into a story of triumph and decay, arrogance and humility.

Stories of the brightest lights and the darkest corners of the weirdest minds.

Twenty-two cross-genre worlds.

Twenty-two portals into the Universal.

Only one way to get there.

ALLEGORIES OF THE TAROT…

An Anthology of Symbols and the Human Experience.

Available now at Amazon, Smashwords, and all e-book retailers.

Annetta's Bio: A professional editor of over eighty novels, Annetta Ribken has also been writing since a tender young age, when letters were chiseled on stone tablets. A precocious student, Annetta earned her Ph.D in the School of Hard Knocks, with honors, in the early Age of Disco. She lives and works just outside of St. Louis with her evil feline overlord, a rescued shelter cat named Athena

  1. Can't wait to read this. If I didn't already have so many ideas for books I'd use tarot to create my ideas, it's such an amazing resource and holds all of life's stories. I'm sure it will feature in some of my future novels if I ever get my current ones finished.. I never realised how much editing, and rewriting would be involved. I'm amazed anyone gets any novel finished and am beginning to wonder what that word means..
