With such a wonderful reception to the premier issue, we are now starting to get the questions:
When is volume 2 going to be out?
What are the topics about?
Volume 2 will be out by the end of May. And though I can’t tell you everything that is in it, I will tell you that it will have more content than the first issue…about 30 pages more, and the subject matter? Again, off the hook!
For example, here is a sneak peek of one of Madrina Angelique’s articles. If a picture ever told a thousand words, this one says that much and more:

Stay tuned for more glimpses into Volume 2 of Hoodoo & Conjure Quarterly.
