I just want to give to each of you who took the time, energy and, yes, love to help me with the title of my book. As in all things, there is always a backstory that motivates every situation and the transformation of every situation. I will share mine with you.
Sometimes out of struggle and frustration come just the right help that shifts everything and allows so many blessings. I will share one of mine with you. I have a digital publisher that is new to the game and all I can gracefully say is they seem very overwhelmed but not on top of what is necessary to do to sell books. Most publishers these days want to know you have people to sell your books to but this publisher promoted my book on social media for about 10 days and then, that was it. There were no copies sent out to any influencers in the industry, no promo copies sent to book stores etc. By the Grace of the Divine I still maintain the rights to all my books except the digital rights to the 13th month. I decided I was ready to take back my books and they informed me that I would need to pay them money. I won’t say a lot of money but enough money that I wasn’t interested in doing that. So I had the choice to either eat the almost $1000 and get my books back or get creative and redo my book (which I had just redone). I had just completed rewriting my book and having it reedited.
Tracy was my inspiration when she said that the title wasn’t great, (Ha, that is kind, she trashed the title.) reminding me most people’s relationship to the number 13. What that did was allow me to rethink the placement of the book. What do I mean by that? I always write things that I am Divinely told to write. I don’t look to see if there is a need in that market. I know it is not sound business but my true business is to uplift people’s spirits and feed their essence. Tracy allowed me to rethink how I might actually place this book as a gift into the hands of the greatest number of people so more people’s essence could be fed. Thus I got to involve you in the process, which means I will again get to rewrite parts of the book and that “The 13th Month” will still be available. How is that for truly wonderful?
I feel totally blessed by all your love and support in helping me choose the title. The winners, and yes, there were two, and no, I can’t use them both, were:
Expanding Time and Space, Getting the Energy and Life your Desire (“Mastering” came in a close 2nd)
7 Pillars of Life: How to Get 29 Extra Days and the Energy to Enjoy Them
I must tell you that I loved that many of you did combine things in different ways and there were many votes on various combinations of these. I will listen to you and find the right combination for you and many others.
I want to offer each of you a special gift. I won’t even tell you what, I just want to say “click” and then say yes to you.
My deepest gratitude to each of you. Wahe Guru love to you,
