My dear friend and Writestream biz partner Lisa Tarves’ new book is now live on Amazon! Check out Just Believe: Commonsense Spirituality for the 21st Century in Kindle and paperback.
Read my interview with Lisa at Writestream Publishing. Here’s a brief excerpt:
1. Why a new edition to Just Believe?
I published Just Believe originally in 2012 through a large, well-known self-publishing company. When the book first came out I was proud that I had finally written my story, but I wasn’t thrilled with the finished product. It lacked my personality on the front cover and even the wording on the back cover wasn’t what I wanted. I was very much on my own with this company and since I had never published before, I needed guidance as to what my options were and how the finished product would look. I didn’t get that guidance. I was an account number to them. Now that I have my own publishing company and I know all the options and possibilities, I knew I could make “Just Believe” really my own and have it totally reflect me as a person. I also have two more books that will be part of this “series” so I wanted consistency in cover design and style.
2. What do you mean by “commonsense spirituality?”
Something I say often and is a big part of what I teach as a metaphysician is “common sense.” To solve most of our problems or answer our questions, all we have to do is really use our guts and things become very clear. Plus, I keep it simple in this book. I don’t make spirituality out to be the complicated subject that many authors do. I want it to be something anyone reading can relate with and understand.
3. Are there new things readers will learn about you and your work?
Yes. I hit a wall in 2014 early 2015 and questioned everything. I questioned my faith and had to decide if I still myself believed. It no longer mattered that I had amazing spiritual and metaphysical experiences throughout my life, I questioned everything. I explain what happened in the Preface to the book.
