CHANCE TO WIN A KATY HORAN TALKING BOARD
You also can win a talking board from The Austin Séance just by picking up a copy of the journal. All you need to do is post a photo of the journal on Facebook or Instagram, and tag The Austin Séance on the image. We’ll pick one of these tagged images at random and send the poster a free talking board. Renowned Austin artist Katy Horan, creator of the popular Literary Witches book and divination cards, is the board designer. You can find out more about Ms. Moran and the boards here.
NEW GIFT FOR PATREON SUPPORTERS
We recently delivered as a free gift to our Patreon supporters a collection of affidavits from the first-ever 1848 séance sessions. Originally published under the title “A Report of the Mysterious Noises Heard in The Home of Mr. John D. Fox,” these 19th century documents dispel a few persistent myths about the historic Fox Sisters sessions. We also have made the Mysterious Noises affidavits available for non-Patreon supporters on our merch page, which you can find here.
And remember: 100 percent of net proceeds from our Patreon support, from Journal advertising and subscriptions, and from merch sales we spend on writers, artists and other creatives at The Austin Séance Quarterly Journal as well as on related production costs.
