Interview with Andrew Boylan – Author of Horror Novel Sacrifice

A filmmaker down on his luck.

A desert town full of secrets.

An ancient cult reborn.

After a decade of failure in Hollywood, Benny Hernandez has run out of money and options. No matter how bad the times have gotten he can’t imagine ever going home again.

The small, desert town where Benny grew-up holds nothing but nightmares that he still hasn’t entirely awoken from.

Late one night, his old, high school girlfriend, Diana Armijo, calls begging for help. She believes the cult they escaped years ago has resurfaced in the mountain village nearby.

Can Benny face the demons of his past to tell the story of a lifetime?

If you like stories about ancient mysteries and desert towns plagued by evil than you will love Andrew Boylan’s tale of psychological terror.

Seven of Pentacles Lisa Shea

Seven of Pentacles

I just finished my Monday Time Management workshop. It’s a great way to start every week, to get organized and motivated. Now to start in on my posting videos, publishing books, and getting things done! So stoked for the progress! What are you up to today? Let me know if you’d like your own card! Here’s mine 🙂.


Seven of Pentacles

Seven of Pentacles Lisa Shea

Traditional meaning:

This is a card of success and financial stability. It’s about a long-term process which will bear fruition. Rather than a get-rich-quick scheme, it’s about planning, being patient, and sticking to the course.


The card can also be about non-financial plans – about other goals in your life which mean a lot to you.

It is indicating that success is flowering. Take a moment to realize it and to see if there is any pruning or trimming to do to keep it flowing.

Aquarian Deck Interpretation:

The person in question is comfortable. They have a snug, nice hat and comfortable gloves. They even have a pretty walking stick. They should appreciate what they already have – it came because of their own efforts.


They are focusing on the largest item in the wealth of opportunities of coins. There is not just one coin there. There is many. They need to think about all of their blessings. They need to step back and see the big picture.
It seems from their current success that they have been developing these opportunities for a while. Rather than just staring at the big shiny thing, they need a wider view. A better appreciation of all they have.


The sky is clear. They are doing well. It’s good to have gratitude for that and to count all the blessings.

Cloister Deck Interpretation:

This is definitely a card of satisfaction with a job well done. Look at how the person is leaning on their staff, relaxing, relishing the strong growth of the beans or vines. There is no stress here. No concern. Everything is going well. The reason it’s going well is the hard work and effort put in until now.


The skies are blue. The landscape is serene. Everything is working out.

Lisa Shea Horror Stories

Hurrah! Hurrah! I have found an awesome narrator for my horror short story series. She just finished narrating book 1 and we’re putting it live. Our aim is to get the first 9 stories live by October, for Halloween. We’ll see how we do! Then we’ll tackle books 10-18. I’ll post links in the comments. What are you guys up to today?

Here’s the link to the first 10 books in the series. For some reason books 11-18 aren’t on the series list; I’ll talk to Amazon about that. Book 1 is free!

Six of Cups Tarot Card

Six of Cups Tarot Card

Happy Monday! I had a fantastic video chat with my godsister last night. It was just so nice to virtually connect. My online friends inspire me, motivate me, and lend me a hand with my many projects. Treasure your friends. Each one is a special blessing. Let me know if you’d like me to draw a card for you!


Six of Cups


Traditional meaning:

This card celebrates the power of strong relationships. It could be a long-term family member or friend who has supported you through various hardships. It could be a brand-new friend who knows just the right thing to say.
With the support of someone who cares, life becomes brighter. Experiences become fresh and fulfilling. You can be attentive to the wondrous world which has always been there around you.


It’s important for each of us to have someone we can talk with. Someone we can trust in. Someone who supports our goals. Seek out those people and nurture those relationships. They are well worth it.

Aquarian Deck:

This is a contented looking card. Peaceful. Warm. There are a wealth of beautiful flowers in pink, violet, red, orange, and all sorts of shapes and sizes. There is something for everyone.


The two friends are joyfully happy together. They are smiling and talking. Sharing trust and secrets. They are snuggly dressed in cloaks and hats. The world beyond them doesn’t even exist. It’s just about them and their serene world.
This is a card of peace and togetherness. About cherishing a friend who listens to you. A friend who believes in you. It’s about being aware of how many blessings you have already. Breathing in that joy.

Cloister Deck:

This is one case where the cloister deck is actually quieter / cooler than the Aquarian deck. There’s the blues and greens and amethyst colors, but the flowers are all pale and the two people are not really interacting with each other. They are simply content being together. It gives a different feel to the scene.
