It's said that in the Old Times, covens killed those who left them. Is it so different now?

Stand-alone "teaching story" using characters from the series.

This instructional novella from Lauren Hartford's The Priestess Diaries is the missing link to readers' question: What happened to Jesse between Celebrating the Tower Card and Fire Burning in Water? Hartford uses fiction to explain how hypnosis can be used against the subject, why some spiritual teachers don't want to let go, and how two people can form an energetic connection so that they feel each other's emotions.

Series purpose: The Priestess Diaries are a novelized combination of true-life events taken from personal journals, articles, and interviews with High Priestesses, a High Priest, and spiritual leaders. Each book in the series emphasizes particular spiritual lessons and provides a context for their implementation. The series also uses the backdrop of a developing love story and its ups and downs because it is within the framework of relationships with others that we learn our greatest lessons and are given both the reason and the need to learn who we are in order to love unconditionally.

The journeys presented in this series of books are often based on the information available at the time of the story and the characters’ perception of that information at that time. As more information becomes known to the characters, some of this information will be proven wrong in future stories, but it is important to present the characters’ perception of truth at each phase of their development because understanding is critical to spiritual growth. Some of these flawed perceptions will be evident to the reader and observer long before they are evident to the character in the journey. Such is life.

Characters described in the series are composites of many personalities in the pagan community and any familiarity with these characters represents the universality of the human, pagan, and spiritual experiences—both very good and very bad. The characters are not always presented in positive terms, but then, these books aren’t meant to be “fluffy.” The characters, like real people, are flawed, fallible, and capable of redemption.
