I stumbled on your site and have looked all over for a way to contact you. I'm doing research for a book I'm writing and one of the articles I found on the Gypsy Magic site interested me. It was posted by you. I just subscribed to your newsletter as well. If you would please email me back at threeravenscircle@gmail.com; not the same email address I subscribed to your newsletter at. I have one personal and one for subscriptions, I'm sure you understand. Thanks so much and I really hope to hear from you soon!
