Birthing my baby

Well, it’s finally happening. My book, Manifesting Paradise will officially launch August 1. This book’s been three years in the birthing process and I’m so ready! Thank you for your support and encouragement. For those of you who are into stats, the book is 266 pages and will be published in a 9” x 6” glossy softcover format and eBook.

I hired a team of people to help me: Mike created the cover and map, Sarah took my new author photo, and my web designer, Julia, created a new page on my website to talk about the book.

Especially as I get close, there are multiple business systems that I discover I need; it’s a learning experience every day. Last week I applied for an LLC, and now my business is officially Manifesting Paradise, LLC.

Then there’s developing marketing campaigns to get publicity and entice readers write reviews on Amazon. I need to create some buzz.

Cheers to a new milestone. But I’m not surprised. When I’ve asked the Universe for something, I have received.
