I had completely forgotten that I had submitted information about my books several months ago for Energy Magazine’s “Holiday Gift Guide,” so when I opened an email from them last week which showcased their selections, I was nicely surprised to see my series at the top of the page. This wonderful publication continues to be so gracious with its support of me and mine.
For the three years that I was completely wrapped up in writing, publishing, and spreading the word about my books, there was little else that I accomplished as the process had literally taken over my life. I contacted everyone conceivable whom I thought would rally around my books, much of the time with no word back. Promoting a book can definitely be a lonely road, but Energy Magazine has been there for me from the start.
I am grateful for the experience of conceiving, writing, and publicizing my books. No matter what I had hoped the outcome to be, the whole process was evidently something that had to be fulfilled in my energy. That day that I received the directive from the universe (https://finding-the-write-words.com/2020/12/08/so-heres-the-story/), which set this all in motion, was a day that refocused my life.
I was supposed to write these books about the energy of love, and not just for children, but also for the adults in their lives. The gentle rhymes and sweet illustrations are meant to remind all of us of the truth of who we are. That truth is that we are love. We are love coming to know itself through our every thought, word, and deed. We are forever learning and growing in this awareness, a love story in the making.
