As you may know, In 2015 Palgrave published my book Fierce Feminine Divinities of Eurasia and Latin America: Baba Yaga, Kali, Pombagira, and Santa Muerte. I have given many related lectures (including at last ASWM conference), use the book for my classes, and a related documentary has been produced by Austin Folklife Resources, among others. Students and audiences are very interested in the book, but the price set by the publisher ($95.00) is too high! Palgrave finally agreed to consider a paperback, but I need to provide supporting information, such as course adoption interest, or even informal discussions about adoption. I need to provide a list of potential courses at specific institutions (can be informal), and hopefully email address of the lecturer, and potential number of students.
In the past, some of you expressed interest, but I don’t have a record of it. I would greatly appreciate your support, so that an affordable paperback could appear on the market! Please feel free to forward this email to any related groups or friends, and write to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am attaching a 2016 review from Reading Religion(American Academy of Religion), which excellently reflects what the book is about:
Thank you so much.
