Happy Thanksgiving 2015!


As always, there’s an abundance of blessings in my life for which I am incredibly grateful: supportive family and friends, great health, living in a beautiful area of Florida, being an American citizen, and co-owning an independent publishing company with a fabulous biz partner and friend.

Earlier this morning, I wrote a post for Writestream Publishing LLC, in gratitude for the amazing success our young company has experienced in just six months. Click here to read it.

On a related note, a client whose book I am ghostwriting is very happy with my work so far — always a boon to my confidence because no matter how many times I do it, writing a book is a unique experience with every individual.

Yesterday I finalized the new front and back cover for my second edition of Water Signs: A Story of Love and Renewal, designed by the talented Kia Heavey. I’m busy making revisions and look forward to releasing the book next month.

I’m also in the middle of a course I signed up for a few weeks ago but will wait until a future time to share details. Let’s just say it’s phenomenal and one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

Happy Thanksgiving!



‘What If There’s Nothing Wrong?’


Join me for Writestream Tuesday on November 17 at 1 p.m. Eastern when my guest is Alison J. Kay, Ph.D“The Vibrational UPgrader:

Alison J. Kay, Ph.D. Holistic Life Coach, has just recently returned to the States from living in Asia for the past ten years. She has been a meditation practitioner for 21 years, a meditation teacher for 18 years, is an India trained, certified RYT-200 Ashtanga yoga teacher, an energy medicine practitioner for 18 years as a certified Usui Reiki Master, a certified Tibetan Adamantine Healing System Master, a certified Advanced Theta Healing Practitioner, an Access Consciousness BARS Facilitator, while also using elements of Chi Gong in the sessions. Also using Vibrational Medicine through Tibetan bowls and bells sound healing, and ailment specific, brain entraining sound frequencies during the sessions as “music,” and other vibrational medicine tools such as crystals, flower essences and essential oils, Alison has designed these holistic modalities to all synergistically compliment and compound the healing effects gained through her quite pristine, high-voltage energy medicine. Alison has also been an instructor of Chi Gong for the past 12 years. Finally, to round out the mind, body spirit trinity, Alison is a Certified ACE Personal Trainer.

She approaches her own strength training and nutrition from a holistic, mind-body and vegetarian approach – Alison has been an endurance athlete, weight trainer, pilates and yoga practitioner as a vegetarian now for 20 years; she is linked in with the raw food and vegan/vegetarian endurance athlete and longevity community within North America. This being also part of what she researched while working in Asia at an international school in Taiwan and traveling throughout Asia during her winter breaks, she learned from the ancient systems using subtle energy and nutrition for health and longevity. This rich experience has helped ground Alison’s self-care practice and her healing practice in a whole new level of power.

Alison’s way of being, and her blend of experience, skills, training and education combine to enable her to translate both the Hindu yogic and the Buddhist teachings on the nature of the human mind, and the nature of how this impacts our bodies and our lives while also using cutting edge science to support comprehension, into a clear delivery with a concise, grounded and humorous style for the Western, globalized mind that helps her students get out of their own way.

Listeners know how much I enjoy discussing metaphysical topics with expert authors in the field. I have no doubt Alison will have valuable insights to share with us and welcome you to dial in with your questions at (347) 945-7246. Be sure to press 1 so I know you want to get on the air; otherwise, I’ll think you just want to listen by phone.

Writestream Tuesday with Alison J. Kay goes live at 1 p.m. Eastern on November 17.  You can tune in via your computer by clicking on this link.


Sneak Peek: Cover Design Options for Water Signs


Next month I am releasing a new edition of my 2008 novel and am absolutely thrilled that this time around I actually know what I’m doing. Unlike then, now I have a fabulous designer in my good friend Kia Heavey who also happens to be a fan of my debut effort — especially its main character, Madeline Rose.

Please check out the cover options below and share your opinions in the comments. While this is only the first round, I don’t want to take too long in making a decision. I’m diligently reading through the original manuscript and tweaking little things like word choice, dialogue, and sentence structure while maintaining the integrity of the original story. I’ve also written a new Foreward chronicling the evolution of the book and my career since its publication.

Indescribably excited about all of the wonderful things happening with Water Signs and Writestream Publishing and can’t wait to release the book next month. Stay tuned!

UPDATE: I’m not sure why but for some reason the Pisces fish are not showing up in the depictions of the moon. However, this new image will be incorporated into the moon just like the original cover (although it is a different Pisces image).
