After going through the process of traditional publishing, I discovered a lot of freedom (and more work) with the self-publishing option.
In this video on my new business website, learn more about the pros and cons of each approach, including:
- Having creative control
- An author's responsibility for all of the marketing and events
- Making 70% of the list price
- Pricing books on Amazon
- Constant innovation
- Support and best practices from other indie authors
- Access to all online distribution channels
There is no BEST approach - only what is best for YOU.

Your current life is only a fraction of the energies you have experienced as a soul.
When viewed from higher consciousness, you open up to the fullness of your soul story and a broader understanding about who you are as a soul, as well as the energies you are experiencing in this incarnation.
You as a soul are composed of many stories, and through your life, the energies of those stories are activated with the intention of guiding you to higher levels of consciousness.
Surely somewhere along your path you have asked yourself:
"Why has my life unfolded in this way? Why do I experience certain themes, or repeating patterns, or ongoing relationship dynamics and lessons? Why are some emotions bigger for me, and yet not as prevalent for other people? Why do I carry specific dominant needs that other people in my family do not relate to?"
For example, if you have experienced a theme of betrayal or abandonment in your life, where did that energy begin? If you have felt deep fears around your emotional expression, how did that originate for you as a soul? If you have found yourself locked into many ego battles with others, what is being triggered within you that can be released now?
Or perhaps you have noticed a theme in your life around lower female or masculine relationships that you wish to inject greater consciousness into because you want more authentic connections with other people. Whatever energies and themes may be prevalent for you, you will find greater understanding to them in healing your soul imprints.

We are energetically able to support each other in unlimited ways right now, and one means of doing that is through conscious advocacy.
We have the ability to lift up our global sisters and improve their lives in practical ways while connecting with the power of sisterhood and success. And the right organizations are the perfect channels for this intention!
Women for Women International is an NGO (non-governmental organization) that helps women in war-torn countries rebuild their lives in practical, sustainable ways.
For over 20 years, they have impacted and improved the lives of 420,000 women – and counting!!
As an Ambassador for Women for Women International, I am committed to raising global awareness and inspiring actions in others (like yourself!) that will result in practical changes in women’s lives.

72! That was the number of Google pages that were (allegedly) offering free illegal copies of my books, including audio books. Well, we can't have that, fellow #authors, now can we? #Hecktotheno

When the Full Moon rises to its peak level of light, we receive a full blast of energy from the cosmos to show us what we need to know, see, and feel right now. The Lunar Eclipse on August 7th is a Full Moon at 15 degrees Aquarius, and it's illuminating 'the vision ahead' and the way forward that advances your soul growth BEYOND what your ego self can embrace.
That means you are being guided to keep moving forward and not feel held back by too much pride, or insecurity, or concern with what 'everyone thinks.' Chances are, they are too concerned with their own matters to put a lot of thought towards your life direction.
So what would you choose if no one else's opinion mattered and the decision set you free? What feels good to you because it honors your path and dreams in a way that give back to the collective?
This Lunar Eclipse amplifies where we give our feelings away to other people and/or how we hold ourselves back because we don't want to separate from others. A part of you wants to feel connected to a bigger group or ideal, but you're being reminded that it is already true simply as a member of the human family.
Both the Sun and Mars in Leo oppose this Lunar Eclipse, which creates a push-and-pull between what you want to receive and what you want to give...between what your heart feels and what your ego believes it needs to get ahead. There is aggression and contention, but Saturn in Sag at 21 degrees helps get to the truth of the matter with maturity. Allow others to own their talents knowing it doesn't impede on your ability to shine and share.
Jupiter in Libra makes a supportive sextile to the Sun and trines the Moon, providing optimism, faith, confidence, and belief in the right people supporting us now.
We also have a Mystic Rectangle in the Lunar Eclipse chart between Pluto, Neptune, Mercury, and Venus. These 4 planets are talking intimately and asking you to assess relationships that support your spiritual growth (Venus trine Neptune) and authentic, honest conversations that allow you to heal a core issue more fully (Mercury trine Pluto). A Mystic Rectangle requires checking in on your yin and yang energy and is meant to help us see new revelations around deeper issues we've been carrying. You may have a new understanding that breaks you free from a struggle.
You are ready to revolutionize your energy field with greater LIGHT and advancement now - and it's been building for most of 2017. Be at peace with who you are and balance that with a willingness to be expansive in your life possibilities.
August is a month of forward movement and change, so say yes to the next step, new adventure, and all progress forward because it IS time and you are ready. Let's do this!

Are you holding yourself back from your FULL creative expression?
Your Soul's energy is blasting through right now to push you into a new part of your experience, and those energy shifts can be uncomfortable because it's new and unfamiliar on some level. On higher levels, it's COMPLETELY comfortable and familiar. That's where you want to connect with yourself - on those higher planes of Creative Confidence.
It is common when we are meeting a new part of ourselves for the first time to have those pesky fears show up. We may have doubt, worry, ego fears, and a case of the "shoulds" around what our creation "should" look like. It can be scary to be vulnerable or "too open". More unconscious messages can be around whether it has value, will anyone care, or will it be good enough? Perhaps you can relate to any of these - or all of them.
Yet the WONDERFUL news about the energy of 2017 is that we are each truly supported in taking the next step forward to 'put ourselves out there' and simply follow the JOY of creating, expressing, writing, making, and feeling ALIVE in our heart centers.
If you have fears of some kind, that's okay - we all do. We are meant to in order to be better humans. But I can guarantee that your HEART and SOUL are much stronger than any temporary fears or 'what ifs' that are circling around in your head. We are receiving downloads of Creative Confidence to move ahead and activate a deeper part of our heart's energy and honest expression. You can do so more effortlessly than you release, too.
Simply expand your awareness to be OPEN and WILLING to receive new levels of confidence, courage, as it connects to your inner joy. And don't be too hard on yourself for what has NOT happened.

Heart Consciousness is the energy of feeling connected to each other as we share our human experiences. It can take natural disasters, global crisis, or local emergencies to remember this truth - but it doesn't have to. The ability to give back in some capactiy - whether to our local communities or to the world - is an integral part of spiritual growth.
In this show, we'll explore how you can consciously give your energy, resources, or time in a meaningful way that will bring you to deeper places of peace, compassion, and connection.
Learn more about Heart Consciousness, and the other 4 types of Consciousness on the planet now, right here on the website.

The Write Beach Retreat is now open for inspiration!
Enjoy 5 days and 4 nights in a charming beachside hotel in Cocoa Beach, Florida as you take your writing career to the next level with deep-dive workshops + realistic directions + practical guidance for putting your unique brilliance on paper.
Especially beneficial for writers of the following genres:
Memoir | Non-Fiction | Spiritual/Inspiration
"The funny thing about a writing career is that you can only plan so much of it. The high points come out of the blue; the low points seems to drag on longer than anticipated; and the inspired writing phases can pass in the blink of an eye.
Each of my 10 books came about through various inspirations and situations that I never planned or had mapped out. My first book, "The Art of Trapeze", took 5 years to write, and I dealt with rejection from literary agents and discouragement within myself. But once the book was finally complete and released, it took off and sold over 30,000 copies globally, hitting #2 on Amazon behind "12 Years A Slave". (Yes, a small part of me wanted to let those literary agents know about that. I then wrote 3 more books in one year, followed by 4 more books in 2 years.
It is a very exciting time to be a writer and to follow this path because there are an incredible amount of resources, strategies, and opportunities for you right now.
And your biggest responsibility through everything is to just keep showing up for yourself.
The Write Beach Retreat will support you no matter where you are in your process because it will be geared to what you are experiencing right now with your writing projects.
It's time to write on - and I would love to help you with whatever writing project is calling to you now."
Early Bird Pricing expires August 1st - hurry!

I have pictures for you from my life in Paris! These are a few of the places I describe in my spiritual memoir, The Art of Trapeze, and I wanted to share these images with you because I know how much visuals can make a story come alive. Come on over and hang out!
Here it is, the first Paris apartment I lived in and absolutely loved as soon as I stepped inside. Worth the wait after seeing many less-than-desirable places. Check out those high beams in the kitchen - gorge. The studio is incredibly small, as one would imagine, and I definitely got tired of sleeping and sitting on a futon. You can't see it very well here, but the kitchen is behind the wood countertop and only four feet wide. The fridge wouldn't fit in the space, so it had to sit in the living room. C'est la vie!
I loved, loved, loved my neighborhood in the 15th! Lots of energy, stores, restaurants, and a gorgeous giant park nearby on the Seine. During the holidays it is magical with Christmas lights and the smell of delicious warm pastries. You can see my little apartment window with the flower pot hanging on the railing.
Here's my second apartment with the gorgeous garden. This is the one that was under construction and I had to nudge those French workers along to get the place completed so I could actually move in. Also, you can see the window where Kitty escaped.
Thank you to everyone who read the book and enjoyed it! It's humbling to know I could contribute to your spiritual journey and understanding your life path, too.
The third book in the series will be released soon! Join the email list for updates and exclusive deals.
If you're interested in reading The Art of Trapeze, it's available as a paperback or ebook in many online stores.
