Update, Aug. 6: And now it’s #3 in Reincarnation and #8 in the Energy Healing category! I am so grateful!

I keep wanting to post new things on my blog, about my current weight-loss, for instance, or photos I took yesterday touring around San Diego. Or the dragonfly totem I communed with last week. And I will, I promise! But right now it seems that the new book’s birth announcements keep pouring in and I cannot resist sharing this one: My book has reached #21 on Amazon’s list of Hot New Releases in Reincarnation! And #29 in Energy Healing! And it’s up to #188, which is page 16 of 100 pages listing all books in the Reincarnation category, whenever they were published  I’m so grateful!


I was clued in by another author and had to go searching for these obscure lists. The one pictured is buried beneath Books/Religion & Spirituality/New Age/Reincarnation. As I said to Joseph, reincarnation isn’t exactly “New” Age! But we’re grateful anyway, and I hope more people will find their way to it because of these listings.

Apparently my current Soul Pursuit involves my year-long dedication to writing this unexpected book, cutting myself off from all other projects and a lot of other things in life, and now, following up on its birth process and helping it to find its readers. I have a few hints of what my next Co-authored project might be, but so far, nothing I can pursue full-time. I’m just along for the ride, as they say.

And what a fun ride so far! I’m trying not to hold my breath until the first reviews come in. I’ve poured heart and soul into this book, not to mention a lot of personal stories, so I suppose I should also put on a bit of psychic armor? We’ll see … sigh … we’ll just have to wait and see … (She drums desktop nervously.)

From the Top Down

Posted on July 22, 2013

Happy Book Day!

Today, July 22, Speed Your Evolution: Become the Star Being You Are Meant to Be takes off into the world!

To celebrate, I’d like to share an excerpt from the opening chapter with you. This comes from my Cosmic CoAuthors:

The science in this book has been brought to you from the top down, through the use of visionary mediums.

It has been nearly sixty years since the visionary scientist Ernest L. Norman first began publishing a “universal, articulate, interdimensional understanding of science,” i.e., his visionary cosmology. Since then, dozens or perhaps hundreds or maybe thousands of visionary individuals have followed in his footsteps, methodically proving—from the bottom up in their Earth-based situation—the principles of this universal energy science.

In all fields—astronomy, biology, physics, medicine—new “discoveries” are daily pushing the envelope of human understanding. The news of these Earth-changing developments may be slow to reach the public, due to political or ego-based or financial vested interests, but the tsunami of change cannot be held back much longer. Upheavals are underway, even in the field of Earth history!

You are fortunate to be leaping ahead of this new era of awakening. You are now holding the first tools for applying this advanced, new-era science in your personal life. But that’s no accident.

You, too, have chosen this time to appear on Earth and reap the benefits of this opportunity. Your own evolutionary development will depend on how well you are able to conceive and use the new science erupting in all fields, even as old systems and beliefs are decaying and deteriorating visibly all around you.

Be brave. Be bold. Do not hesitate to step ahead of the crowd and use what you know. You will not be alone, even if you feel yourself to be. Supporting you from higher dimensions will be millions of advanced Minds who have gone before you, who now “reach down” in thought to supply valuable insight and information through as many open channels as they can find.

The time for Earth’s rebirth has come and the new science is pouring into receptive minds as rapidly as it can be accommodated.We welcome you into our Brotherhood of Light with open arms, and pledge ourselves to your personal, creative, evolutionary development with our minds, with our hearts, and with our words. So be it.

Speeding Up Your Evolution!

Posted on July 9, 2013

I’m happy to say the release date for Speed Your Evolution: Become the Star Being You Are Meant to Be has been moved up from September to July 22, 2013!!!

Amazon is accepting pre-orders now, at a significant discount ($12.89, versus the $16.95 list price), but they’re a little slow to catch on to the new publication date. Be patient! I hope to have this sorted out with them very soon, so books will ship by the 22nd.

And a HUGE THANK YOU to those who’ve already ordered the book!SYE Back cover3 JPEG

If you all buy a copy exactly on July 22, Amazon will move my little book up on its lists and perhaps I’ll fall into the Top 100 in my catetories of Afterlife/Reincarnation, Spirituality, Self-Help, and even Energy Healing! That would give the book a boost in visibility, helping more Truthseekers find it.  I hate those heavy sales-pitch campaigns authors use to create this one-day sales peak (which does influence later rankings), and thus far I’ve refused to do it. But I do believe in this book, so I will do whatever my Cosmic CoAuthors prompt. I’m hoping they’ll let me keep things low-key, but I’ve sworn myself to this project, so anything goes. !!

My first celebrity endorsement!

Posted on January 12, 2012

Remember this photo of me with Donna Eden, world-famous energy healer and author of Energy Medicine and Energy Medicine for Women, after an advanced class we took with her?See that book in her hand? It’s one of my novels, and even though she’s incredibly busy, her assistant just emailed a note from her to Joseph & me. It included this about Cosmic Dancer:

“It is a wonderful book!”

Yep, it’s going on the cover with her permission. Thank you, Donna!

Do you know other celebrities who might endorse a novel about life after death, reincarnation, ballet, and the challenges of life as a psychic teenager? Suggestions welcome–especially if you know how to reach them! 🙂
