So that is what it looks like. I also have a certificate to hang... somewhere... not exactly sure where but it is nice to have a tangible reminder of going through the process.
The book should be available to order in about three weeks. They are setting up the templates now. Progress.
I am starting to get a few things lined up. My friend Paul, who owns Leopold Gallery, is offering space for me to hold classes. I had a wonderful response to a class at Aquarius Books a few years ago but wasn't ready to pursue it at that point. The class was "Learning to Connect with your Higher Self." This time, I am considering offering three different approaches -Manifesting Abundance, Journaling Prosperity and Awakening to Divine Guidance. I am also open to suggestions.
I have two initial outlets for marketing - One is a television interview with a book reviewer and the other is a church organization also offering an introduction to a new author. And the more effort I am willing to invest - the better my results. The wonderful thing about iUniverse - they offer a Marketing Kit designed to help support and organize a marketing program. The downside. It requires WORK. Given I do the work, they will help book an appearance and signing at a local (for me) Barnes and Noble. (Location to be determined.)
Writing the book - as hard as that was - is apparently the first leg of a long haul endurance race. So - guess I am warmed up! Having to come up with a marketing plan may not be so bad. Hello Universe! Could someone please book me an all-expenses paid interview in Hawaii? Okay - now I have a goal. Next step...making myself attractive to Hawaii... ; )
