Moving along

The book signings this winter have been just wonderful! I'm so grateful to everyone who came and made each event go fun!

The book is currently available at several stores. Please stop by the web site: www.wiyof.com to see a complete list. Also, check out the stores who are deciding and let them know you're interested.

The publisher I chose does not offer distribution for the initial size I ordered, so the next batch will be a little bit different. Once I have the final draft finished, the book will be available through all the major on-line book sellers! Yipppeeee!

As I reflect on the monumental changes that took place in my life in 2010, I am happy. And, I'm looking forward to a prosperous 2011 and wish the same for you.

Places you can buy the book!

There are two book signings scheduled for now. One on December 5th at Caffe Santoro in Cameron Park; the second at Bogart's Coffee House on December 16th in Seal Beach. I also talked with an owner of the book store All About Recovery, her name is Angie and she is also going to carry the book.

I'm so excited about meeting and helping new people!

getting ready for book signings

If you thought that you are finished with a book when you're done writing, your wrong! When I finish a piece of art, I hang it or deliver it to the new owner. It's done. I can enjoy it, but, as far at that particular piece is concerned, I'm done. With a book, finishing is just the beginning!

First, Lulu.com (the publisher I selected) does not offer distribution for the size I initially selected, so I gotta re-do the publishing part. This is completely my fault, btw, lulu has been awesome. They have not charged me for one thing extra and shipping has been very fast.

Next, comes signings. I want them to go very well and want to make sure that everyone that comes has a great time. So, of course, I'm putting lots of work into that part. Today I made a tablecloth to fit perfectly over the table I bought just for signings. I also ordered an instant camera so that I can give pictures of myself with readers when they buy a copy of my book. My head is spinning with "what to do next" and my printer just ran out of ink. So, I guess I need to give into my body and get some rest.

The creative process brings with it such an adrenaline for me, it's always been hard for me to pause once I'm on a roll. But, this project is a long-term one so I better pace myself.

Hope your creative endeavors are going well.

Positivity Gatherings

These gatherings are a way for people who are building a positive life to get together and share progress. We tell each other what we are doing to improve our lives and the lives of others as well as encourage each other when struggles come along.

Carefully Selecting the people we choose to spend time with is an important part of walking in our own footsteps.

The website is up!

This has been a very exciting week for me regarding the book! Not only have I received wonderful feedback from people I know who've read the book, two of my favorite authors are also going to read it! Don Miguel Ruiz, author of the Four Agreements as well as Gay Hendricks, author of The Five Wishes have both responded to emails I sent with requests for the book.

And now... the website is up, too. Please take a moment to check it out and sign my guestbook. www.wiyof.com

I look forward to keeping you all up to date as the book and Positivity movement continue to grow!
