I love meeting and talking with people. And at the Readers & Writers Down Under Convention on the Gold Coast in March, I was in my element. My workshop Putting Eros into Erotic Romance gave readers and writers the opportunity to learn not just about creating successful sex scenes, but I also shared with them how I work with the divine feminine in my writing process.
On 1st March, Tiny Dancer, Dance of Love, Book Two was released. The merry-go-round spins once more. Gotta claim the book on all the Amazon websites, Goodreads and the rest. Spend more time sending out newsletters, Facebook posts, blogs etc, telling everyone about your new release. I’m on the never-ending promotion wheel for Tiny Dancer while simultaneously desperately trying to sell Dancing Queen. I guess what I learned is…I can’t do everything or be everywhere no matter how hard I try.
The new year started with a bang! Aside from the hurly-burly of promoting Dancing Queen and preparing my workshop presentations for the Readers & Writers Down Under Conference in March, I began plotting Dance to a Gypsy Beat, Dance of Love, Book Three.
I cannot recall recently hearing anyone exclaiming they have enough time to do all the things they need or want to do. The usual catch-cry from all of us, particularly writers, is that there isn’t enough time. It seems that everyone suffers from time debt and as I neared the end of this year, I had to keep affirming to myself there was enough time, there was enough time.
This is a biggie for authors. Will people like my book? Will they get me?
Since I write love stories laced with the divine feminine and with a twist in the ending, I wasn’t sure how readers would respond.
Writing a book is like making an investment in your future and honest reviews are indicators whether you’ve made the right investment.
What a silly question… you can never have too much fun in life!
As someone who loves a party and has been responsible for directing and managing multi-million dollar events, I thoroughly enjoyed my paperback book launch.
Autographing copies of Dancing Queen, reading excerpts and chatting with my friends, readers and the press was seriously fabulous. I can’t wait for the next book launch.
Have you always celebrated your successes?
Feelings on unworthiness, emptiness and confusion can oftentimes become so overwhelming that depression seeps into the core of a person, shackling them from expressing their power and purpose. However I discovered there are antidotes to these crippling emotions, in the form of creative expression, personal peace and a passion for living.
Bingo! that’s what I wanted. A change of direction and of career. Not that I was unhappy where I was before I embarked on this writing journey. It’s just that I had more to offer and more to be.
Life is so short. The last thirty years of my life flew past in a twinkling of an eye and I don’t doubt the next thirty will be even speedier.
This seems a silly question, but whenever we energise a destiny we desire there can be a residual thought of what happens if this all does happen. Questioning the very thing we desire the most demonstrates we still doubt the power of our intention. For me, I knew this questioning was detrimental to my destiny. Instead I chose to take time to rejoice and celebrate in becoming a published author.
Throughout my life there is one critical lesson I learned. Life may not always be easy, but it is simple. There are basic universal laws operating at all times and in order for us to generate the results we desire most, we need to understand these laws. Everything is energy and as such we act as energetic transmitters attracting to us circumstances and conditions based on the vibrational energy at which we resonate on a consistent basis.
