Thrilled to announce the release of my poetry and prose collection with photographic images. My blog tour started on Sunday the 16th of February with my lovely blog tour hosts, including our very own sister of the fey: Colleen Chesebro today: https://colleenchesebro.com/2020/02/20/2020-conversations-with-colleen-featuring-author-m-j-mallon-marjorie_mallon/
Who Is Mr. Sagittarius?
And what is his connection to twin brothers, Harold and William?
When Harold dies he leaves a simple memorial request
Will his sister Annette honour it?
Or, will the magic of the garden ensure that she does.
A magical story expressed via poetry and prose with photographic images.
My magic of trees series in the Sisters of The Fey definitely had a part to play in the creation of this book.
It all began with a touch of magic… in a garden that made me aware of the magic all around me… https://sistersofthefey.com/2018/05/08/a-magic-gate-in-the-city-of-cambridge/
Thereafter, I discovered spirit animals, a robin and a dragonfly…
And let’s not forget some truly magical trees… my favourite of these was the evocative weeping willow.
Mr. Sagittarius is a collection of poetry, prose and photographic images inspired by the botanical gardens in Cambridge. It features a variety of my photos including: trees, a robin and a dragonfly! As well as this there are various other photos, several stories, and even some Halloween poems!
Mr. Sagittarius is a magical celebration of the natural world, a story about the circle of life, with an emphasis on the changing seasons of the year and sibling relationships.
Huge thanks to my amazing cover designer and formatter: Rachael Ritchey who has done an amazing job creating the ebook, paperback cover and graphics.
