Rather than make New Year’s resolutions, each year I select a single word to focus on in the upcoming year. In 2013 it was Peace. In 2014, Serendipity. Last year it was Flow. In 2016 my focus word is Alliance. That said, it’s time to unveil the secret I’ve been dangling…
MY BOOK IS BEING PUBLISHED THIS FALL!
Title and cover reveal coming soon
Writing the book was the easy part. Since then I’ve learned that it really does “take a village” to birth a book. From publisher, to readers, and everyone in-between: manuscript critique, copyeditor, proofreaders, legal council, permissions, artwork, layout/design, book trailer, publicity, marketing, printer, distribution, bookstores, event planning, and author endorsements. I’m grateful to each person as they help me navigate literary waters.
An enthusiastic proponent of affirmations, this year’s positive supporting statement—I am in alliance with experienced people who have my book’s best interest at heart—targets my focus this year.
“It is probably not love that makes the world go around, but rather those mutually supportive alliances through which partners recognize their dependence on each other for the achievement of shared and private goals.” —Fred Allen
Do you have a focus word this year?
