I recently came across your the Daughter of the Soil blog and was wondering if there were any sponsored post opportunities available? I represent a number of horticultural clients who are looking to sponsor posts with a contextual link in, either in the text itself or in a disclosure at the end.
Let me know if that’s something you’d be interested in, or if you have any similar alternatives and we can discuss further and make arrangements.
My first album, Mind The Gap, was released in 2008 by Sonic Spongecake and a follow-up, Seven Star Green, was released in the summer of 2009. I have an ongoing partnership with
writer, poet, cellist, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Daniel
Staniforth. He works on my 'solo' music, I contribute to his Luna Trick project and we have a joint project called Alchymical Muse which aims to take advantage of the way our voices combine in a
mesmerising synergy. We've also done theatre and film music and a CD of poetry readings. Blimey.
Daniel and I also run Skylight Press, a small publishing venture which has become our full time job. We specialise in literary fiction (and poetry) and quality occult books (Western Mystery Tradition, faery, Arthurian). We produce 20 books a year and authors include poets Will Alexander, Margaret Randall and Hugh Fox, and esoteric writers Gareth Knight, Wendy Berg, William G. Gray, Alan Richardson and Dion Fortune.
In my 'spare' time, I'm a plant breeder and heritage vegetable conservationist specialising in garden peas and potatoes. My creations include a crimson-podded pea ... no GM, just natural genetics and shamanism! I'm currently working on a book about potato breeding for gardeners. My Daughter of the Soil blog details all these adventures.
Also a very keen photographer ... see my Flickr stream if you want to have a look.
Oh, and a historian ... I run Cheltonia, a local history website for my hometown of Cheltenham which combines my photography with detailed street-by-street research on this beautiful Regency spa resort. Another site, Sulis Manoeuvre, pulls together some of my photography, writings, history researches and pagan instincts – a creative site inspired by the spirit of the land.
Last but nowhere near least, I'm author of two books under my maiden name of Rebecca Wilby: This Wretched Splendour, a stage play set in the first world war trenches, which had a successful run in London in 1998, and In Different Skies, a novel also delving into the trenches of the Somme. I've contributed to other books as well, including one by Gareth Knight, being an initiate of the group he founded.
As you can see I have an incredibly full life, so please forgive me if I don't spend much time online or respond to people's posts about their favourite colour of toilet roll.
"Rebsie has the most beguiling of voices – she really is something special. Just beautiful, uncluttered, refreshing." - ORGAN Magazine
"absolutely delightful" - Stuart Maconie, BBC 6 Music
Reviews of the books:
"The standard first world war play is still R C Sherriff's Journey's End. But Rebecca Wilby knocks it into a cocked hat with This Wretched Splendour ... a more than promising debut." - Michael Billington, The Guardian
"an engaging, affectionate foray into an alien world." - Time Out
