Thank You So Much!

The past week has been a whirlwind, but rather than feeling turned upside down, I feel absolutely invigorated. I have to believe that Universe knows when it is time for a shuffle, and when you leave yourself open for changes, wonderful things manifest.
A couple of weeks ago, I decided to give something a try – after spending almost three decades doing Tarot readings for friends and family, I thought of spreading my wings to the outside world and I offered a few free sample readings on a handful of websites. The response was almost overwhelming in a good way: People from all parts of the country – and even out of the country – wrote and allowed me the opportunity to read for them. I couldn’t have hoped for a more incredible and validating experience! Being able to connect with folks I have never met, and glimpsing their life stories, was an absolutely mind-blowing gift to me, and I learned a huge lesson from that: If one remains open to divine guidance, energy WILL flow. The feedback I received from the readings was heart-warming, and it certainly built my confidence toward this new venture. Many people I regularly interact with are familiar with my passion for crossroads, and the possibilities for self-awareness they offer. My readings are based on identifying each individual crossroads, and then exploring the pathways that originate from it, so that people can make better choices for themselves. I don’t see readings as a fortune-telling tool, but rather I see them as a way for someone to look deep within and discover blocks they might not be aware of. Right now, I feel that I have taken a new turn at this particular juncture, and I am still busy smelling the flowers on the side of the road. For the last few months, I have felt a strong need to reinvent myself in some way, and although writing still remains my greatest passion, I feel this is the pathway I was meant to take. Thank you so much for all the support!

March 6-13 -- Read An E-Book Week!

I had no idea there was such a thing as a "Read an E-Book Week", but given that we have days to celebrate everything under the sun, this doesn't sound like a bad idea after all.

In fact, I think it is the perfect opportunity for new authors to get the proverbial foot in the door and introduce their books. Many people are scared to buy books from authors they haven't read before, and who can blame them? After all, $10 to $20 are a lot of money to spend on a book you know nothing about.

But what if that price is suddenly reduced to $2.99? While every penny counts, many people can afford to spend the equivalent of a high-end cup of coffee on a new book. Thanks to new technology such as Kindle and Nook, and even other applications that my grandmother would have affectionately labeled the devil's tools if she were alive, taking our chances with a new author has suddenly become easier.

If you are comfortable with that concept -- and if you are the proud owner of one of the gadget aforementioned -- I would like to invite you to take a look at my two titles. The first one is a nonfiction self-improvement, and it aims at guiding readers to declutter and reinvent their lives through the familiar concept of housekeeping (no don't have to clean anything physical), while the second one is a novel of paranormal suspense still holding a spiritual flavor. In the story, Melody Bennet travels far outside her comfort zone to the bayous of Southern Louisiana to honor her grandmother's dying wish. Little does she know that this journey will change her life forever...

So, here they are. The famous (or infamous) links are listed below. I hope you will take a chance at knowing more about me and about my work. Until we talk again, may you be blessed in all your endeavors, and may you always find what you're looking for. :-)
