Feel Free to Prosper: An Entrepreneurial Memoir of Synchroncity and Guidance
Story Facts and Book Updates
If you have read this far, then you probably have read my entire story (and perhaps you also enjoyed the conversational posts as well). I would now like to offer additional story information that I hope you'll find interesting and inspiring. Here is what you will find in these next posts:
This post contains "Story Facts and Book Updates."
In the next post, I will share the poignant "Foreword" to my book written by author Linda Alexander. It is one of the most heartwarming and touching pieces I could have ever expected, and I am deeply honored by her gift.
Then you will find the section entitled "What Readers Are Saying" - unsolicited "rave" reviews and comments received during the telling of my story.
The two sections were among those included with the finished manuscript.
Then, you'll read about my surprise invitation to speak at the Women's Writing and Publishing Summit along with many renowned authors, agents and publishers. I was truly honored! My session interview was entitled "Let the Universe Be Your Guide - Using the Laws of Attraction to Get Your Book Written and Published." I will post links where you can listen to the free audio of my session and also download a free ebook from the Summit with valuable articles from all of the Summit's speakers.
Story Facts and Book Updates
• My story was completed over an eight-month period right here on this network forum. It was then edited and converted to the manuscript, which contains 51 Chapters (thankfully with regular numbers - no Roman numerals!). Can you imagine? 55,500 Words in 51 Chapters written exclusively on a network forum?
• As of this date, this story thread has been viewed or read an astounding 9,500 times!
• As mentioned above, as I was writing the story, I received a great many notes, messages of appreciation and unsolicited praise and "rave" reviews - aside from the encouraging comments you have read in the posts above. With permission, many of these comments were quoted in "What Readers Are Saying."
• I have officially dedicated my story and book to the members of this forum and visitors, for if they had not been reading as I wrote, my story would not have been written. The Universe, in its infinite wisdom and guidance, had provided the perfect venue, the perfect audience that would inspire me - not to write a book, but to tell my story.
• I asked the Universe for an "angel" to help me format the manuscript in Word according to professional industry standards - out of the blue, a woman named Angel Brown appeared with years of publishing experience and knowledge who provided me with a perfectly polished manuscript.
• Paul S. Levine, the agent mentioned during the early story segments, read the completed manuscript and officially signed me on May 30th. The manuscript has recently been submitted to major publishers. It is now the job of the Universe to place it in its rightful "home."
• Paul changed my memoir title slightly from the one I originally chose. It has become Feel Free to Prosper: An Entrepreneurial Memoir of Synchronicity and Guidance. One publisher has already commented on what a great title it is.
• Paul is now adamantly requesting that I create a book proposal for a second book - a self-help book based on Feel Free to Prosper. He is planning to negotiate a large advance based on my memoir and the promise of a second book to follow.
• I can think of no better example of synchronicity and guidance for a first-time writer (who didn't even believe she was a writer) than to have a literary agent dangle the possibility of representation and eventually sign her to bring her story of synchronicity and guidance to fruition.
You'll find a lot more details about the "story surrounding the story" in my speaker's session from the Summit.
• It is my deepest desire that my story will provide the inspiration for you to become aware of and connect with your own source of synchronicity and guidance.
