Hello beautiful people,
I’ve got some super exciting news to share with you. I finally made up my mind in regards to publishing (only taken me three years from when I first started writing!). For a long while there I had entertained the idea of self publishing (definitely a confidence issue) and have only within the last couple of weeks decided to have my book published by a publishing house.
In light of this grand decision I had been given a contact from a friend (that I’d been sitting on for at least a couple of months!) and decided to give them a call. After a wonderful conversation I sent them my manuscript. A few days later I received an email from them expressing how much they enjoyed reading my manuscript and could we meet to discuss my book in depth the following week!
That meeting was on Tuesday and boy what a meeting!
I so get that this book, the sharing of my story is so much bigger than me and that I am purely a vehicle on a journey of difference making. That part is easy! To truly experience universal/divine energies at play, dancing and entwining delicately together as they create their magic is simply breathtaking and awe inspiring! To ignore such a thing would be arrogant and ignorant of me! Therefore I give thanks, love and appreciation for all that is bigger than me, a part of me, divine planning and my purpose.
To say the meeting was absolutely fabulous doesn’t even get close to conveying the feelings that were coursing through my body. Every ounce of my being new, as did Andrews, that we were exactly where we were meant to be.
All we have to do now is finalize the agreement and we are all systems go.
I am still in awe and somewhat gob-smacked that the very first publisher I sent my manuscript to loved it so much that they are going to publish it!
So here we are, coming to the close of January and my book will be ready to go when the documentary Andrew and I filmed late last year airs in April (as it stands today!). Don’t have an exact date yet, though I will definitely keep you posted.
The best part about moving forward too, is recently my daughter (soon to be sixteen) read my book and upon asking told me ‘it wasn’t nearly as bad as she thought it would be’! In fact it was brilliant! When I asked her are we okay to go with it she declared ‘absolutely’!
Now if that’s not divine energies at play, I don’t know what is!
Until next time, keep smiling.
Love & hugs,
‘practice what you passion’®
