I’m Here

I recently made this quote picture for I’m Here, because I love this picture, in fact, I very nearly used it for the cover of the book!

I posted the quote photo on Facebook, and my amazing Patreon supporter and Academy trainee, Kariel Tejai, said this about it:

“This was the first book I read by Michelle Gordon, whose wisdom helps me Remember the light that comes with the dawn. I am proud to be a patron of hers. Haunting, yet breathtaking in its weaving of hope and tragedy, and an ending that hurtled me towards an abyss – yet pulled me away in time to show me yes, there is hope on the brink of utter self-annihilation.”

Despite being the hardest book I have written yet, on an emotional level, I’m Here is my favourite of the Visionary Collection, because it illustrates the unconditional love possible between two people, even when the circumstances are not favourable. While searching for a quote, I re-read the end of the book, and it still strikes so many chords deep within me, and I know that it has done the same with many others.

Several readers actually broke up their current relationships after reading I’m Here, because they realised that they were not experiencing the kind of relationship they really wanted, and that they deserved the kind of love that the characters in the book were experiencing.

I’m Here helps to remind me that the ones we have loved who are no longer here, are just in a different dimension, and that they never leave us. All we need to do is speak their name, and they are listening. It also reminds me that our Guardian Angels are also always with us, and are waiting to help us. All we need to do is ask.

If you have read I’m Here, please consider leaving a review on Amazon, and comment below with your thoughts on the story or the characters. I would love to hear from you!

Book Tours and Reviews and Oracle Readings!

It really has been a busy few weeks, and things seem set to continue in that way. This is just a short update, to mention a few things that have been happening.

First of all, I had a lovely review posted by Tiffany Hathorn, who read and loved The Elphite. She also interviewed me for her blog the other week. It seems mad that many people have read and loved The Elphite, but I have so few reviews on Amazon (or anywhere) for it. I’m determined to remedy that, by doing some more marketing for it, a part of my Visionary Collection launch.

I have finally edited and posted a new Oracle Card Reading, and will post another later in the week. You can watch it below ūüôā

And finally, in this short update, I would like to put a call out to anyone who would like to get involved in my book tour, because I have to say, I think it will be epic! You can check out all of the details on the website.

Aside from that, I am focussed on finishing I’m Here, ready for release in just a couple of weeks, and organising more publishing workshops. (Oh and watching Fringe – ever so slightly addicted to it!)

I will post another update soon!

A review of The Elphite

The Elphite

Was very pleased this week to receive a wonderful review from Patricia D. Eddy, who reviews books for Author Alliance. You can read the review in its entirety on Goodreads here. 

If you have read The Elphite, perhaps you would consider taking a few minutes to write a review on Amazon too. It’s amazing how powerful reviews can be, especially for books by an unknown or Indie Author. And I don’t just mean because they encourage readers to buy the books and give the author a chance, but because chances are, the author reads every single review, and not only takes any criticism¬†or advice and works on it, but also uses the positive words of encouragement to keep motivated. I wrote about this in a blog post a little while ago.

So maybe today, seeing as it’s a day of expressing love, you could show an Indie Author some love and write them a review!

The Best Christmas Gift!

Me & NealeYou might remember that back in March this year, I attended the Spiritual Renewal Retreat in Oregon – which is four and a half days with Neale Donald Walsch. During the session on the ¬†Friday, I had the chance to speak to Neale, to thank him for running the free retreat, which had enabled me to be able to attend. He asked me what I did, and I told him that I was a Spiritual Fiction Author. He asked for the title of a book I had written, and I replied ‘The Earth Angel Training Academy’.

He said he wanted to read the book, so the following day, I took in a copy I had with me (as I was about to begin writing The Other Side, and had taken it with me for research purposes). I gave it to Neale, who was very excited to be receiving gifts (at the same time, he was receiving a signed CD from the drummer of the Turtles, who was also on the retreat).

On the last day, the Sunday, we all gathered in the room, and I was sitting at the front. As Neale began the session, he pointed at me, and said ‘You!’ He then turned to the rest of the group, and told them that if he looked a bit bleary that day, it was because he had stayed up until 2am to read my book! He told everyone that they should all get a copy, but not to read it at night if they wanted to get any sleep!

Will Richardson, Neale’s friend and the President and Director of Programs at the CWG Foundation, also read The Earth Angel Training Academy, and The Elphite, both of which he reviewed on Amazon for me.

I didn’t want to bother Neale for a review, as I know he is a very busy man, but I was eager to know what he had thought after he had finished reading the book, so I e-mailed him yesterday and asked him for his thoughts.

I never expected to receive a reply so quickly, but I woke up this morning to find his e-mail, and needless to say, have been very happy since!

Here it is –

“The Earth Angel Training Academy packs wonderful and ancient truth into an imaginatively original tale that both delights and enlightens. The result: a read that is both fun and inspiring.” ¬†— Neale Donald Walsch

It was the best Christmas gift I could have asked for. If you would like to buy a copy of The Earth Angel Training Academy as a gift for someone this Christmas, there is still plenty of time! You can get one here.

Have a wonderful day!
