Loving the olympics so far. Two medals for Team GB - go girls!! Tom up today, so maybe another. Can someone tell me why Tom is the poster boy of these olympics? No harm to the lad, but there are a whole load of other people in the team, yet he seems to be the one getting all the publicity.
Ok, rant over! Maybe time for me to go meditate for a while.
Sales of the book steady, but not spectacular yet. The house on the hill is disappearing fast...
If you have bought a copy, thank you. Don't forget to go back into Amazon and leave a comment and give it some stars. That really is surprisingly powerful in the ranking stakes.
Now, off to get a cup of tea before I settle down to watch Tom and Peter Waterfield as they go for gold!
How about this for a fabulous review (from Goodreads)
"You know a story will ruthlessly possess you and not let go when the main character confronts an armed stranger in the first sentence. Thus starts this deliciously-disturbing joyride through fear, suspense, determination, and, ultimately, survival. Finch's protagonist, Pat Devine, is one readers will easily root for as she weaves through the fear and the intrigue to discover her independence and inner strength. The struggle between flight and self-acceptance is only one layer of multiple emotional dimensions she must tear through, and Finch's writing pulls readers along on Pat's chilling & breathless journey."

OMG, I can't believe it - there are blue skies outside and not a cloud in sight!!! Anyone would think it was July. Oh wait, it is lol
Happy hump day, my friends, I hope this day finds you well. Sales are steady but still not spectacular. If I was the type of person to give up easy I would have long before now. Two competing images keep going through my mind. the first is the old adage 'stop flogging a dead horse' and the second is the story of the guy with the gold mine, who stopped and sold the mine when he was less than one foot from the gold. So, should I keep trying, or give up? answers on a postcard. Either way, thanks to those of you who have already bought the book. I do appreciate your support.
On to other matters, isn't NLP just fantastic? I'm currently reviewing the Master Practitioner training and am struck once again by how powerful nlp patterns of language are for driving change. Quantum linguistics, cartesian logic, sleight of mouth, meta and milton the list goes on.
Thanks to all those of you who have bought the book. I hope you are enjoying it. Sales are steady, but still not spectacular. Can't give up the day job, just yet. Don't forget to go back to Amazon and leave a comment and give it some stars. Remember, its available on Amazon UK and Amazon USA, and all the other Amazon sites across Europe. By the way, when you're in there, have a look at the new covers on the 'You Can Achieve...' series. They look great, you can really tell now that each book is part of a series! And more to come.
The diet is still going well, just one pound off this week, but I have been busy and didn't work out as often as I should. Now that sounds like an excuse doesn't it?!?! Don't worry though, I've made up for it over the last couple of days though. We'll see what next week brings
One thing that really keeps me sane in the midst of all the madness is my reiki practice. It really recharges the batteries, just being able to take some time to yourself twice a day and just be, and let the reki energy work its magic. Bliss!
Happy Sunday, my friends
Sales of the book are still not taking off. I did think that once Amazon woke up, then perhaps I would start to see some sales coming through. It doesn't seem to work that way though.
Anyway, I will continue to keep on attracting abundance and prosperity. I read an interesting article the other day which argued that the reason why The Law doesn't work for some people is that they are blocking it. I will do some more research and get back to you.
Anyway, thank you once again to everyone who has bought What Lies Within, please go in and review and star it. I need a boost to keep me on page 1 of the lesbian fiction page. If you haven't bought it yet, please do I need all the help I can get.
Quite a lot to report today. I bit the bullet and changed the book cover. I had planned to post a copy, but for some reason the technology is letting me down. Pop over the Amazon and have a look. I am now in the top 10,000!! Isn't that amazing, so thank you if you have bought the book. Don't forget to review it. It's amazing how volatile the whole thing is. I was the 19th most popular book in the Lesbian category last night, but have gone down to 46 now. I moved into that category because I was advised that there is too much competition in 'crime' and 'thriller' which is where I think I belong. It seems to have worked though - just waiting for the sales to start rolling in.
Life is pretty good and the diet is going to plan. 2 lbs last week, and I hit my first target 164lbs - pushing on now for the next target of 150 lb. The best way to lose weight really is to eat less and exercise more - that's what I'm doing, so I'm confident my weightloss will be permanent.
Sales of What Lies Within are going well. At the moment I'm hovering around 22,000, but you sink fast when there is no activity. I have heard that when you get into the top 20,000, Amazon will start to promote you, so if you haven't bought the book yet there has never been a better time! By the way, if you have bought it, please put a comment and a rating. That seems to be almost as powerful as buying in the Amazon scoring system. I'm attracting the house on the hill!
A lot of folk ask me if its possible to 'learn' reiki. Reiki is a very powerful healing therapy. Practitioners work with the universal energy, or reyki to achieve amazing results for themselves and others. Reiki was originally designed as a tool to aid spiritual development of the self, but here in the West we recognise its value as a healing therapy and practitioners are often described as having healing hands.
So can anyone learn Reiki, or do you need to have some form of ‘gift’? Well, yes and no, there is not much to learn in the traditional sense of the word. You will want to learn about the history of Reiki, hand positioning and the use of Reiki symbols. But the most important part is getting attuned to the Reiki energy and then learning to work with it and building your connection. A Reiki Master will be happy to work with you and attune you to the Reiki energy. Reiki energy is no respecter of time or distance, so you can work with a Reiki master on a face to face basis, or one who works on line.
Stay dry and safe
Hi there and thanks to those of you who gave me feedback on the book cover. I've gone ahead and changed it on Amazon but kept the old one on Smashwords, so we'll see what happens.
I've been thinking about the law of attraction and wondering whether it really is possible to attract abundance and prosperity into your life. What do you think?
Have a happy Friday!
Hello friends - I've had a deafening silence to my request for feedback on the cover options. All except Linda - thanks cuz.
Please let me know what you think, I don't want to make a bad decision. Especially since I seem to be getting some traction on Amazon.
If you've read the book, please go onto Amazon and review it and give it some stars. This is really powerful in getting me up the rankings. I was at number 22,000 at one point yesterday, but am now sinking fast again (by the way, last week I was at 190,000) A few good reviews and (5?) star ratings will keep me climbing. I'm still not sure at what point Amazon pay attention and start promoting the book, but I'd love to find out.
If you haven't bought it yet - go on, make my day
Have a fabulous day!
.Ok, so I have a predicament. I love the cover of What Lies Within. I think it is kinda mysterious and moody, but I just got a very interesting comment on Amazon.
"Contrary to what you may be led to believe by the cover, this book, although having plenty of scenes set in a church, is barely religious at all. Instead, it touches on some hard-hitting subjects such as affairs, drugs, murder and sexuality."
This goes on to be a really good review, but it got me thinking. Is the cover putting people off from buying the book because they think its going to be about religion?
So here's where I need your help. Below are three possible front covers
1 - the original
2 - revised option
3 - slightly different revised option.
Let me know what you think. I've put links behind each one in case you want to go ahead and buy.
So there you are, please let me know what you think, either here, or through Facebook or twitter
Thanks and have a great day
