THE WHITE CAT ORACLE DECK
Many of you had a chance to see my White Cat Oracle Deck recently. Just a few days before the PopCats Show, my prototype deck arrived in the mail. I debated whether I should even bring it. You know artists, always nervous about what people will think of their creations. I gathered my courage and made a sign proclaiming free One-Card Readings… which had less to do with finding interested customers, and more to do with creating a situation in which I would have to try the cards out.
To my surprise, the cards were a hit. If I’d had decks, I could have sold out. People wanted to purchase multiple decks. They told me which of their friends would want a deck. I did readings to people who crossed their arms and stared. I gave readings to people who jumped up and down and clapped with delight. I gave readings to people who cried and thanked me. Several seasoned Tarot readers grew serious, looked me in the eye, and told me that the deck was “dead on,” “amazing,” and “eerily accurate.”
If you missed all the fun and you’re curious about the cards, you can see a few samples at https://scribblefire.com/cat-divination/
I wish I could tell you they were for sale right now… but I can’t. Here’s the deal: I need to raise funds to make the order. I’m going to do a Kickstarter in February. (For those of you unfamiliar with Kickstarter: it’s a website that helps creators raise startup capital for projects from people, such as yourself.

What? Why so far away?
Well, that’s when I’ll be able to do it right… without rushing. The holidays are coming fast. These cards have been over two years in the making, they can wait a few more months. The humorous, brilliantly illustrated deck will come with a “how to” book and we’ll have gobs of goodies for rewards. If you have reward suggestions, please send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d love to hear from you.
WHATEVER SHALL I DO IN THE MEANTIME?
You’re in luck. I’ve got several options.
