Patheos has several bloggers who write about their work with Dionysus. Whenever someone wants to start working with a specific Deity in a special way, I think the book Devotional Polytheism by Galina Krasskova is a great starting point. Ancient Greek Religion by Walter Burkert is also an invaluable, if dense, read for anyone approaching a Deity from that pantheon. It gives tons of context about these Deities that most of us wouldn’t otherwise have.

Alys, this may not be the place for this, but I just wanted to pop in for a sec to say I always appreciate your book recommendations when I spot them. I'm looking forward to reading the two you mention above!

Aw, thank you! :8) The Burkert book starts a bit slow, but by the time it ends you’re like, “Wait! You can’t stop there!”
