Okay, so what is she up to now? I can almost hear Ricky Ricardo chatting quickly in his native tongue about my antics. Yes, I am taking on more projects this year with a singular focus; to get my ass published. Okay, not my ass. I've put that enough times here on the blog. You don't need to see that again any time soon.
I'm in a place in my life now where all the vast information and experience I've accrued in my (not going to divulge to you) many years is going to be put to a good cause; books. I'm working on books I seriously would want to read if they were available, but no one is writing them, so I feel compelled to fill in the need for the curious folks like myself.
Here's this year's book projects as they are plotted out thus far:
Abandoned Places: Abandoned Memories (Desert Edition) The editor is pitching this to the publisher--fingers crossed. Julie and I are very excited. This was a fantastic project to photograph abandoned sites and write up a scene from the past based on a reading I did of someone who had been in that setting and had contact with an object enough to leave their residual memories and feelings.
Abandoned Places: Abandoned Memories (Vanished Cities Edition) Julie and I are working on this one in February on a kick-ass road trip through AZ and CA desert that we will video and photograph and share with you, even the hotel room hilarity because these road trips with me never go as one would imagine.
Was That a Ghost? This book is one I wrote alone and it's basically an easy and very informative guide to help you figure out if something you encountered was paranormal or not. I do this with clients all the time and I'm sharing my process with everyone. My approach is different than most but being a psychic and synesthete and a highly organized Virgo, it makes perfect sense when you follow it along and you'll probably wonder why no one has taken this approach before. I hope to release this on Kindle/Nook in March. When this does get release, I will have a wicked giveaway of either a Kindle or Nook basic model (winner chooses).
From Fledgling to Full-Fledged Psychic This is one of my books too. It has my heart. I love writing this one and I love sharing how you can take your basic intuition or gut instincts or premonition dreams and take yourself to the next level. I'm shedding light on the psychic world. It's not as magical and woo-woo as people think. It's simply using skills like an athlete. They are skills EVERYONE has, but some people out of necessity or life situation manage to focus on them more. This will come out on Kindle/Nook probably in late May/early June.
Other things in the works:
Hug-A-Blogger Yes. The project is on again. We are simplifying it by doing AZ bloggers so we can do the road trip and get it done. Go to the site to learn more of how we see this project developing. This is another project with Julie.
Spirit Vessels: Why Some Buildings Are Haunted This one is the one most people bugged me about. It will take a great deal of research and correlating and Julie has agreed to work on it with me. It's based on my 2009 study of 50 haunted places culminating in my Haunted Formula. This will tell not only what elements help to create a haunted vessel but perhaps even how we could build one and they will come....
So, 2011 is a helluva lot of writing and hopefully a helluva lot of reward. Stick with me through this and I promise you even more information on the spirit world that will blow your mind. And you thought Mind Fuck Tuesdays were draining on your thought process...
