The Twin Flame Resurrection has Arrived!

The Twin Flame ResurrectionI am so pleased to let you all know that the latest book in the Earth Angel series is now available on Amazon!! The Twin Flame Resurrection is in paperback and on Kindle, and will also be on Smashwords this weekend, which covers the other eReaders. Please do leave a review on Amazon for the book if you enjoy it, and if you’ve enjoyed the others in the series, please do take a few minutes to leave reviews for each book, it helps other readers to see that the rest of the series is as good as the first book.

It was a very tight deadline in the end, involving many late nights, but so very worth it! I can now concentrate on writing the next book, which will be available by Christmas!

To celebrate the release, I wanted to share with you a new video, on how to cut the cords with your Twin Flame. It’s something I feel quite strongly about, after having experienced the effect it has had in my own relationship. Please do leave a comment and let me know what you think, and if it helps you!

Review Wordle!

I have been de-cluttering my office over the last couple of days, (I will explain the full story about why soon!) and I took down all my reviews off the wall so I could paint the wall, and I decided that instead of having the individual reviews, I would copy and paste all of the reviews I have so far into wordle.net, and then print out the wordle for my wall!

Here is my first one:

review wordle

 

I decided to take out the most used words, like read, book, characters, story and my name, and then I created a new wordle:wordle1

 

It feels good to make wordles again! And also awesome to see all of the lovely positive words that were used over and over in the reviews of my books. I want to thank every single person who wrote a review, I really do appreciate your words of encouragement!

 

Earth Angel Sanctuary

I recently connected with a beautiful Earth Angel called Sarah Vine, who is an old soul like me. After watching some of her videos on youtube, I realised that we had a lot in common. Not only that, but she had created the Earth Angel Sanctuary, a safe space for Earth Angels to get guidance and information online. The Sanctuary reminded me very much of the Earth Angel Training Academy that I wrote about in my books, and so when we connected, I sent Sarah copies of the Earth Angel books, to see what she thought.

Sarah read all three books in just four days (she had to stop for a day in the middle to get some work done 🙂 ) and she loved them. Her review on Amazon of the Earth Angel Training Academy describes her excitement –

“I absolutely LOVED this book, and the following two, the Earth Angel Awakening and The Other Side.
As someone who is passionate myself about awakening earth angels, I recognised myself in this book very easily! I loved all the characters, imagery and storyline, massive well done to the amazing author Michelle Gordon for writing these for us all, they are written extremely well and are very easy reading, which makes it even more easy to take in unconsciously….
I highly recommend these books as they will awaken any reader who is an earth angel themselves. I could not put this book down until it was finished and could not wait to read the other two!
I would love to see these as films to awaken on a mass scale :)”

After some long Skype conversations, Sarah and I have decided to collaborate on some future projects, some of which I will be talking about soon. She will also be interviewing me for the Sanctuary (there are interviews of Earth Angels on there), which should be great fun.

If you are an Earth Angel and you sometimes feel like you need a little help, or there are things you would love to be able to do, but don’t know how, I would definitely recommend joining the Earth Angel Sanctuary. The monthly membership price will be going up on the 1st July, so it’s worth signing up now, so that you can get all the benefits for less. Sarah adds videos on a regular basis, and they really are very useful.

Here is a video of Sarah explaining what an Earth Angel is.

Authors Are Humans Too

I know fellow book-lovers out there will understand what I mean when I say that favourite authors can become like gods to us, and that we can put them up on pedestals, elevated high above us ordinary human-folk. And when we reach out to tell them how much their words have touched us, how much their prose has changed our lives, we are shocked and quite excited when they respond, amazed that they deemed us worthy to reply to.

But honestly, authors are humans too. It was more unusual to get a reply years ago, when snail mail was the norm, because as most authors know, finding writing time can be tough as it is, but handwriting and sending replies to fanmail would eat into that time too much. These days, when you can reply in 140 characters on Twitter, or reply to a Facebook post or a short email quite quickly, the likelihood of getting a response has increased dramatically.

I remember writing to one of my favourite authors as a teenager, in the earlyish days of email, and was very excited to get a reply, even though the reply consisted of a single line. It felt like I had connected, though briefly, with a mythical creature that a mere mortal like me shouldn’t have been allowed to. In recent times, I have connected with several authors on Twitter, and have ended up having conversations with some of them, who have turned out to be genuinely awesome people.

Back in January I received a message on Goodreads from a fellow book-lover and book reviewer, asking for a copy of The Elphite, because she was keen to review it. I responded quite quickly and soon sent a copy of the book. The review she has written will soon be posted, along with an interview, and the brand new cover of The Elphite! She said that she was surprised and extremely excited that I had responded to her request, and sent her the copy, because after all, I was an author, and to get a response from such a mythical, magical creature was unexpected but exciting.

I’ve said it before, but I will repeat it here – I am just a human. I’m not even an incarnated Faerie or a Starperson. Just a mere mortal. And I love hearing from my readers and from potential readers. It is what keeps me writing, keeps me connecting, keeps me creating. So reach out, send messages, all are appreciated and cherished and often printed and stuck on my walls, to motivate me to publish more books.

Sending love out to everyone who has ever sent me messages, you are all amazing. xx

Book Reviews

Book reviews. Most people see them as necessary for book sales, the more (good) reviews a book has, the more it is likely to sell. They’re also very useful to readers, they can check out the opinions of other readers before they try the book themselves. Sometimes, they are simply used as a way for people to vent, rant or abuse the author or even other readers.

But for me? They provide me with the motivation I need to write. When I get stuck with my writing, when I wonder if I should continue, all I need to do is read some of my book reviews, and it reminds me that there are people out there waiting to read my next book. Waiting to see what the characters do next. Who are cheering me on and who have supported me in my career so far.

To make the most of this, the other day I printed out some of my reviews, and stuck them on my wall.

book reviews

I want to thank every one of them for inspiring me every day, and to let readers know that your review is more than just a way to give your opinion. It may mean more to the author than you think.

Which led me to realise that I have read hundreds of books in my life, but I have been very lax in writing reviews for them. So I have decided to write a review every time I read a new book, and also to begin leaving reviews for books I have read in the last few years.

After all, what if my words are the very thing the author needs to read to continue with their work?
