A New Idea

  One day, Val thought it would be interesting to make a collection of articles about Rennes-le-Château and its region as it appears to those people who know it well.  She publicised the idea and stories came flooding in.

  You will be able to read about the "spiritual vortex" of Rennes-le-Château, reincarnation at Montségur, meeting with Henry Lincoln, the village symbolising the meeting of the God and the Goddess (wait till you read it), the meaning of the myths of Bugarach, the evangelists of the Roman Church, Bérenger Saunière's secret ambitions, meeting Mary Magdalene at Rennes-le-Château, and a comparison of the troubadour's creation of romantic love with today's "Divine Union" ideas. No writer knew what other writers had written and one surprise that emerged was the interest in the Holy Grail and its mysteries.  Is Rennes-le-Château a Holy Grail myth in disguise? we ask ourselves.

Some of the writers are "Rennie celebs," who have written about their personal experiences in our magic region and their subsequent move to live here permanently.  These make moving stories.  

  As well as the launch at Easter, we had a party for the readers and writers of "My Take" at Rennes-le-Château in the summer.

  The idea worked so well that all paperback copies were sold by the summer of 2016 (it is still available on Smashwords) and we are now considering doing a "My Take" for 2017.   All the "Rennies" as they are affectionately known, will be able to add their stories and/or updates.

Reviews

From Luigi Oliviero, one of the contributors to the book;   The idea of creating a book/place where anyone could share his or her ideas about Rennes-le-Château without fearing any judgment is really a winning one.  I know that you will read probably feelings and ideas very far from mine but, nevertheless, my position is not out of place there, because Rennes-le-Château is ALL those things.  Your book shows them in the right way, letting people express themselves in their own words.  No one has ever written a more honest book about this topic.  Last but not least, I think Antonio, my friend, took a nice picture of us both for page 23 and it looks really good in the book.

From Elizabeth in Belgium;  You are part of a community there, everyone has their say and the reader can see the details of all activities.

 Now the 2015 paperback edition of "My Take" has sold out but the title is still available as an e-book with Smashwords.  Click here.
