🕯️⁠⠀
The Imbolc candles are only available for a couple more months, until the next Wheel of the Year celebration! The wintry scent and earthy soul makes this a great transitional candle for the late winter and early spring months, perfect for keeping the winter darkness at bay until the sun returns. Get yours now before they're gone!

We're so excited to preview the cover for the adapted novella of the 2020 Chapter of The Briar Society!⁠⠀
🗝️⁠⠀
We've been working all year to compile the events of The Briar Society into one easily readable narrative, which will be available in just a few weeks, mystifications and all! Whether you're just now catching up or looking to re-live the magic, we've left nothing out. Stay tuned for more info coming soon!

Never lose your place in the story again. Our new enamel bookmark is now available for pre-order in the shop!⁠⠀
📚⁠⠀
Whether you’re diving into the books of the Briarverse or whittling down your 2021 reading list, this beautiful, high-polish enamel bookmark, featuring the Ackerly Green logo and Herman the Hippocampus mascot, will keep your spot in style. Unlike paper bookmarks (and receipts and envelopes and post-its) this metal and enamel keepsake will last for years of reading.⁠⠀
📚⁠⠀
We only have 100 of these awesome little guys to send out, and when they're gone, they're gone! We'll be mailing them out as early as next week, so make sure to place your pre-order now by tapping on the post or through the link in our bio!

Introducing our first Wheel of the Year candle: Imbolc!⁠⠀
🕯️⁠⠀
Inspired by pagan holidays and significant dates within the Briarverse, our newest line of AG Alchemy candles will feature four seasonal celebrations, beginning with Imbolc, a traditional celebration of the coming of spring!⁠⠀
🍃⁠⠀
The theme is "Spring Born in Winter," and has head notes of ivy, winter, and frost melded with head notes of smoke, birch branches, and dried tea leaves, and rounded out with soul notes of earth, incense, and vetiver root.⁠⠀
❄️ ⁠⠀
We'll be sending out our first batch on January 18th to make sure that all the candles arrive in time for Imbolc (February 1st), so if you're planning on celebrating, order now through the link in our bio!

My brand new spooky, moody home office is just about finished and I had to share a few pics before I do a full tour post!⁠⠀
👻⁠⠀
The walls, window trim, baseboards, and even the ceiling were all painted a historical gray-green, and the built in desk that was just finished is a contrasting black-green with the lighter color inside the bookshelves. ⁠⠀
💀⁠⠀
Throughout the day, the paint color changes as the early light bounces off the greenery outside my PNW windows, then turns gray and finally emerald as the sun sets. It's inspiring, cozy, and SO beautiful.⁠⠀
📚⁠⠀
The chair is an old Art Deco find (as are the wyvern light sconces which I'll shoot for the final reveal!) and that's kind of the vibe I was going for, that mix of early American gothic and 20s Art Deco. I love that period of history with its wave of spiritualism and occult interest in the States.⁠⠀
🍂⁠⠀
Seeing that lush garden gate just outside my office window every day is so inspiring and evocative.

Getting ready to ship out some AG Alchemy orders! Which candle are you most excited for? ⁠⠀
🕯️⁠⠀
You guys, we were completely blown away by the #SmallBusinessSaturday support you showed over Thanksgiving weekend! Between your orders and the ones we're sending out for our AG+ members' annual gift, @cjbofficially is all but swimming in candles.
🔮⁠⠀
Since these candles are hand-poured by CJ himself, there's only a limited amount that he can make at a time. That said, there's still a chance for you to bring your favorite character home! Tap or click the link in our bio to browse the 3 new Briarverse character-inspired scents and hop in on the next run of candle orders!

Where would you get a Briarverse tattoo?⁠?⁠⠀
✨⁠⠀
@cjbofficially, @witchinghazell, @mariahgarell, and @baluskitrevor all wear their guild badges proudly on their sleeves (CJ's pup Henry approves), while @skylad92 keeps Herman close(ish) to his heart! We're completely obsessed with these guild-inspired tattoos: two fierce Ebenguards (1st and 3rd pics), one lovely, ethereal Gossmere (2nd), one brave, Umbranor-bearing Thornmouth (4th), and last but not least, an absolutely magical Monarch Papers-inspired tribute to Weatherwatch!⁠⠀

Looking to add some Black authors to your summer reading list? We are too! ⁠⠀
📚⁠⠀
We've got a reading list of 15 fantasy books by Black authors up on the blog today—including Black Leopard, Red Wolf, which I posted about last summer but had to put down because it was simply too physically heavy to keep bringing on the subway with me. I'm looking forward to diving back into this one without my commute to weigh me down, and am super excited to start discovering so many other fantastic voices as well (#11 I especially have my eye on)!⁠⠀
✨⁠⠀
Check out the link in our bio for the full list, which includes both adult and YA recs, and a link to Black-owned bookstores you can order from directly. ⁠

It happened: I finally finished Lord of the Rings!⁠⠀
✨⁠⠀
When @cjbofficially found out I had never read or seen LOTR, my homework became reading the series. It took a little longer than expected, but I finally finished reading and I have a LOT of thoughts.⁠⠀

Feeling a little sluggish after the long weekend? Potion Mouse has just the pick-me-up!⁠⠀
🔮⁠⠀
If Potion Mouse could use the Ackerly Green forum, the beverage thread would definitely be his favorite, because it's where we share our favorite teas, coffees, juices, and other various drinkable elixirs! If you're like us and getting tired of making the same old teas and coffees every morning, you can follow the link in our bio to find some magical new recommendations. Just steer clear of any poison bottles hidden in the shrubbery...⁠

#tbt to when the office was this neat and we could still be in it!⁠⠀
✨⁠⠀
I think this photo was taken before one of our bukbangs last spring (note the goldfish and the m&ms on the table), which feels like a lifetime ago! We can't wait to be back working under that big sunny window, but until then, we're counting down the days until next week's Zoom community hangout! Check out the link in our bio for more info on how to log on and hang out with us next Wednesday—we'll see you there!⁠

Missing the office, our bowtruckle, and his tiny potions!⁠⠀
🔮⁠⠀
@cjbofficially stopped by the office last week to pick up some AG Alchemy supplies, so we're hoping to start remotely fulfilling candle orders again soon! We have plans for a whole new line of magical scents, which we're hoping to bring you this summer, and a few other secret projects up our sleeve, too . . .👀⁠

What a weird and wild journey this year has been, don't you think?⁠⠀
🔮⁠⠀
This picture is a throwback to the office, our magiq tray, and some plants that are most likely no longer alive (💔). Our journey's looking pretty different from what we thought it would be when we pulled this card a year ago, but the fact that we still have so many friends and readers on it with us means we must still be on the right track. Rest assured that we're still working hard to bring all of you as much magic as possible, wherever you are on your journeys. 💜✨⁠

Hermione Granger is obviously a Thornmouth...right?⁠⠀
📚⁠⠀
We've been having some fun on the AG forum hypothesizing which Briarverse guild the Guide to Magiq would sort our favorite Harry Potter characters into! We've got a curated list of proposed sortings up (with GIFs!) for about a dozen of our faves, but we're loving hearing other opinions and theories! ⁠⠀

Current mood: mooning over this gorgeous candle from @otherlandco!⁠⠀
🌟⁠⠀
@cjbofficially has been working to set up a remote AG office so we can start fulfilling AG Alchemy orders and creating new scents again soon, but in the meantime, we're getting all the candle inspo from this Moonstruck candle from Otherland's winter collection! Just opening the stunning packaging is a whole mood in itself, and the candle has subtle but lovely scents of sweet myrrh, white mahogany, and smoked birch, making you feel like you're bundling up to go stargazing at a clear night sky.⁠⠀
✨⁠⠀
We miss experimenting with candle scents and creating magical moods for you all, but don't worry, we've got plenty of other plans to keep bringing you magic while we're away! We've got a new idea or two up our sleeves...

Have you pre-ordered The Book of Briars yet?⁠⠀
📚⁠⠀
Part 3B of The Book of Briars was emailed to all pre-orders and AG+ members yesterday! The book is being released in installments as the Basecamp 34 narrative progresses on the AG Forum, and yesterday, Eaves finally confirmed that the Mountaineers had correctly located all four shrines to the icons of Elainnor Heavenwielder.⁠ We're still waiting for Port and Yuridia to report back on the purpose of these shrines, but with every discovery, the workings of this new age are becoming clearer.⁠⠀
🔮⁠⠀
With every pre-order, you'll receive all of the parts of the book that have been released up until now, and by joining the forum, you can help unlock the next chapters as well! Follow the link in our bio to pre-order your copy and catch up on the story today! ⁠

Have you been following our blog series on elemental magic in the Briarverse?⁠⠀
🔮⁠⠀
Each week, we've been taking a look at one of the six magimystic elements in the Briarverse and thinking about ways we've seen their energies manifesting in the Briarverse narratives and in our own lives. This week is the element of Thought, and next week we'll be closing out the series with The Wilds!⁠ ⁠Check out the link in our bio to read along on the AG forum. ✨⁠
