IndieBound is a community-oriented movement begun by the American Booksellers Association. It brings together booksellers, readers, indie retailers, local business alliances, and anyone else with a passionate belief that healthy local economies help communities thrive. Successful local, indie businesses help dollars, jobs, diversity, choice, and taxes stay local, creating strong, unique communities and happy citizens.

Eye of Horus and other Independent bookstores have partnered with Google to sell Google eBooks™ because of its open and accessible platform, so indies can provide an easy way for their customers to discover, read, and buy ebooks at while supporting local business. The ebooks are sold directly through independent bookstore websites.

Google eBooks are cloud-based, digital books that allow readers to access their libraries on almost any device from one single repository. You can now both purchase and read your Google eBooks on your Android device using the free IndieBound Reader app, but you will also be able to read them later on your computer, as well as on a wide variety of eReaders.

Make it easy to browse, buy and read Indie on your Android.

Tarot for Writers by Corrine Kenner

Most people think of tarot cards as a fortune-telling device, but did you know they’re also a great tool for writing and creative thinking? Writers from John Steinbeck to Stephen King have used tarot cards for inspiration, and Italian novelist Italo Calvino went so far as to call the tarot “a machine for writing stories.” You don’t need arcane knowledge in order to use this tool; just and open mind and a desire to jump start and explore ideas in creative ways.

Tarot for Writers

Take the class on Saturday, May 21st! Now you, too, can learn how to use tarot cards to develop your own short stories, novels, screenplays, and poems — with direct guidance and advice from Corrine Kenner, the best-selling author of the Tarot for Writers Guidebook. You’ll learn how tarot cards can help you break through writer’s block, help you with plotting and dialogue, and glean insights into your characters’ past, present, and future. The Tarot cards are rich in symbolism and relationships which can add twists, turns, questions and answers to your prose.  This workshop is extremely hands-on. Bring your projects, your ideas, or notes on napkins! Oh, and of course, a tarot deck. If you don’t have one, our staff can help you pick one out.

Eye of Horus Metaphysical is thrilled to host this class in our classroom.  In the Tarot for Writers Workshop, you’ll learn how to:

  • tap into the archetypal imagery and symbols of the tarot for writing inspiration
  • create characters and stories based on randomly drawn tarot cards
  • use additional cards to develop scenes, settings, dialogues, and description
