Welcome to you Arlene! Your forthcoming publication sounds intriguing. Not enough has been written on your chosen subject. Perhaps your book will shed even more light on why Venus/Aphrodite can be so engaging!
Hi Arlene. Greetings, and glad you've found the online depth community. I wonder if you found us through Eleanor van Natta? Your new book sounds wonderful and it will be great to see it in print!
Meanwhile, as you can see, the Alliance is a dynamic and growing group of people who understand the power of connecting around critical topics and the fact that we are a global community allows us to meet and learn from others in a multitude of ways.
I think you'll find much to engage with as you begin to browse the vast content and start interacting with others. I encourage you to jump in right away and get your feet wet by simply sharing a link or article that has meaning for you or perhaps by commenting on others' posts, asking a question, or sharing some of your own thoughts or work.

And congratulations on your upcoming book. You might want to list it within our Published Authors group and mention when it can be bought through Amazon, thereby giving your book and the Alliance a boost. I know I will be buying it in that the soul is my greatest interest. Until the book comes out, you may find many of our blogs, forums, and groups of interest. I look forward to your posts.
