Our Vision


Asteria Books is a publishing house envisioned and manifested by Laurelei Black for the purpose of printing and distributing high-quality books on esoteric, spiritual, and magickal topics that might have had difficulty finding a home with other publishers due either to the seemingly limited appeal of the topic or to the newness of the author. Asteria prides itself on bringing fresh voices with cutting-edge ideas into the public’s view.

Event Coordination

Asteria Events represents Laurelei's life-long love of event coordination, melded with an earnest desire to bring the wisdom of Asteria authors to retreat and small event settings. Several retreats and weekend intensives are planned for 2016, including the College of Priestesses Retreat, an Aphrodisian Weekend Intensive, and a Pagan Writing Retreat.
