Want to Attend the Earth Angel Training Academy?

Earth Angel Training Academy Logo

It’s tough being an Earth Angel sometimes, and despite having had training on the Other Side before arriving, there are some things that are still difficult to deal with. Which is why I have created a seven week course (with the assistance of amazing Earth Angel Andrew Embling), consisting of seven evening classes, that are based on the classes taught at the Earth Angel Training Academy on the Other Side. (Which you can read about in the book)

The classes can be taken individually or you can attend them all! Each one will go into depth on the topic, and will include an activity and useful techniques and actions you can take into your life to improve your experience here on Earth.

The classes will be running in two locations before Christmas, starting on Thursday the 15th October in Harts Barn in Longhope, and then on Monday the 2nd November in Peace of Stone in Monmouth. In the new year, there will be two more locations, and later in the year it will be developed into an online video course so that no matter where you are in the world, you can take the Earth Angel Training Academy classes!

The aim is to have fun, to create a community and to learn things that will assist your missions here on this planet.

You can check out the website, where you can register your interest, and book your spot on the course!

Back to School

Or rather, back to business! After a rather slow August, in terms of getting anything done, there is a definite feeling of really getting down to business this morning! Got up at literally the crack of dawn, and have already designed a flier, written a thousand words, made biscuits, created vouchers, sent some invoices and done the washing up.

It’s only 10am.

If I did this every day, I would really be on fire! Thing is though, I’m not normally an early bird, I’m very much a night owl, so this is a rarity, but I am going to make the most of it!

So, the reason for bothering you on this beautiful September’s day? To let you know that I will be offering Oracle Readings at two of my favourite venues – Peace of Stone in Monmouth and Zenith in Leominster. The first one day is in Peace of Stone, this coming Saturday, the 12th. I will be available for readings between 11am and 4.30pm. Then on the 21st September, I’m headed to Zenith in Leominster, where I will be offering readings all day and then doing a talk in the evening.

The final date in September is Saturday the 26th, back in Peace of Stone. I plan to do some dates in October too, to celebrate the release of The Twin Flame Resurrection (release date will be announced this week along with the cover reveal!) There is also something else that’s very exciting happening in October… will write a post all about it this week too! (Apologies for overuse of exclamation marks, can you tell how excited I am and how much chocolate I’ve already eaten today??)

The Twin Flame Retreat is Now Available!

You can now purchase your copy of The Twin Flame Retreat on Amazon! It’s available on Kindle and in paperback, and I’ve signed it up to Matchbook – so if you buy the paperback directly from Amazon, you can download the Kindle version for free!

Just today I have taken delivery of the first printing of the new book and the copies look awesome:

 

 

book 1

book 2

I am celebrating the official release on the 25th April by doing Oracle Readings in Peace of Stone in Monmouth between 11am and 5pm, and then will be talking about Earth Angels and Twin Flames and having some nibbles in the evening! I am very excited because my incredible editor and friend Liz Lockwood will be there! For those of you who have read the books so far, she is very much the Angel called Beryl, who is a main character called Beatrice in The Twin Flame Retreat!

All the details of the launch event are on the poster:

Calling all Angels…

I’ve written this blog post several times in my head, which is where I would rather it stay, but I know that I need to actually type it and put it out there. Because this blog post is about the truth. Which is that I need help.

You would think that by the time I’d written and published my 7th book, (not to mention helped to publish several books for other authors) that I would know how to market them. That I would have an established way of launching my books so that they made an impact, that I would be selling hundreds, if not thousands of copies.

But the truth is, I’m just as bad at marketing now, as I was when I began. Why? Because traditional marketing does not feel authentic to me. I am a great believer that people find a  book at the right time for them to read it, and if they’re constantly blasted with messages of – you must buy this book right now – then it will just irritate them if it’s not the right time.

I figured it might be a good idea to get some help with the marketing, so I found a PR company who would write a press release and send it out to journalists for me. They wrote the piece, and though it sounded good, in all honesty, I couldn’t read it without giggling, because it bigged me up so much, that it seemed a little ridiculous. At the time, I was still in – ‘this is how you market stuff, you make it look like the next big thing’ mode, and so I approved it for them to send. Didn’t receive a single email, call or query about it, and to be perfectly honest, I don’t expect to. Why? Because it was not authentic. If you would like a good giggle yourself, please check it out on the only place I’ve seen it online. (Click here) (Just to add, the company were great to work with, very professional, and very good at what they do. I have no complaints about the service I received)

I’ve been doing the Brene Brown eCourse, and one of the main threads (because that has been her main focus for her research) is vulnerability. We build armor around ourselves, making up stories about things, so that others perceive us in a certain way. I know that there are a few people out there who assume that I am selling loads of books and make a ton of money. And though it’s nice that they think highly of me and my books, it’s just not the truth.

So back to what I said before. I need help. I know there are readers out there who have read and loved my books, who have not written reviews or recommended them to friends. If you are one of those people and you are able to, could you please do that for me? Reviews on Amazon really do make a difference, and you can write one there even if you bought the book directly from me or from a shop I sell them in. If you don’t have an Amazon account, then you can post a review in the comments below or on Facebook.  If you are on Facebook, you can like my page and share it with others who might like my books.

If you haven’t bought your Christmas presents yet, you could buy a copy of one of my books as a gift. With the new covers, the Earth Angel books now look really awesome. You can also still buy the Oracle Cards that accompany the books, directly through me on my website, or from Peace of Stone in Monmouth.

All of these things help to just make my books a little more visible and accessible, and word of mouth recommendations are far better than this false marketing that I have been attempting to do. After all, I know that my books will not appeal to everyone, I don’t want to sell millions of books only for them to be read by just a few. I write books for them to be read, for them to help people. But I can only do that with the help of my readers. To make it easier to share the links to my books on amazon, I have universal links to them all, which make it easier when tweeting or posting on Facebook. I’ve listed the links below. Even a tweet every now and then helps 🙂

Thank you for reading, and for letting me share this with you. I don’t find it easy to ask for help, and to admit that I don’t know how to do something, but I can’t keep on pretending like it’s all easy and taken care of. And as much as I wish I could sometimes, I really cannot do it all on my own.

Book Crossing Book Tour!

pam

As an Indie Author/Publisher, I have inevitably ended up with copies of my books that are unsaleable for various reasons. I had a box of books destroyed by a courier (bent pages, ruined spines etc) and have had books returned from shops that have closed that are too beaten up to sell as new. I thought about selling these books at a discount when I do fairs, but then offering a damaged product didn’t appeal to me. As a book lover, I like to get a nice shiny copy when I buy a book, so I couldn’t bring myself to do that. I thought about just giving them away, but then I remembered BookCrossing.com. The concept is that you register a book, get a code, put the code in the book, and then release the book into ‘the wild’. The book is then picked up, read by someone, and they can log in with the code to say where they found the book, and what they thought of it, then they pass it on to someone else.

I thought this might be a fun way to get my books out there, but also an alternative kind of book tour! So I have registered four copies of The Doorway to PAM, and I have put a post-it note on the front of each book, saying that it is free. I have stuck a label inside, that says the book is on tour and what it’s Book Crossing code is.

I hope that people find them, pick them up, read them and then pass them on. And if I get a few more Amazon reviews that would be a nice bonus too!

I will be releasing these four books this week, and in the spirit of the book, I will be leaving one in a cinema, one in a tearoom, one in a pub, and one in a hotel. I thought about starting them from different locations, but as I don’t have a car at the moment, that may be a bit tricky, so I have decided to start them all in Monmouth, and then I can track to see just how far they travel! I will update their locations once I have released them, you can see them on my bookshelf on BookCrossing.com.
