Thoughts on the world, homeopathy, mindfulness and food...
A collection of blog posts - feel free to respond with your thoughts and comments - I love to have feedback - thank you!
Lots has been going on and I thought I'd share a wee update on the book here on the blog.
I've almost finished annoying Lel, my graphic designer with tweaks and changes... almost anyway!
I'm loving where the front and back covers have got to. I'm loving feedback in general. My project is unlikely to be without criticism - it's a book on homeopathy afterall, so am in a 'bring it on' phase before it heads out to the wider world! Tweaks, edits and more are afoot.
When I think about it all, my biggest sense is gratitude, and it's possible my Acknowlegements section could be complained at for being like some kind of Oscar waffle... I am incredibly grateful for those on my journey to getting to where I am, and for those helping with the book.
I can have a bit of "I can do this' attitude at times, but in reality it's never without a team, or if nothing else a safety net, to pick me up if I'm struggling, give me a kick up the ass or a hug. All are appreciated at different times. There have been so many people involved with this, and still are to come, from those who feature in it, helped educate me and so much more. A friend described it yesterday as feeling like some beautiful woven mandala with some gorgeous threads interweaving together. That feels about right. I'm giving birth to this book but there is so much more than me involved with it.
Russell Brand did a sticker give away and after I'd sent off for and received Russell's stickers through the post, I started playing with designing stickers to accompany the book. Of course I handed over my random designs to Lel... who came up with the idea of stickers that double as bookmarks...
And ta-dah! Here they are!! I love a world where I think about creating something then, would you look at that, it exists now. What kind of magical existence are we having?!
The book has been with two people I respect HUGELY in my wee homeopathy world for their thoughts on all/aspects of it and is now with Helen at Bold Fish Publishing for her to organise my thoughts into something coherent and more readable (I don't think it's terrible already but looking forward to even better!)
We meet in two week when she'll be almost done with her work on it. March heralds, as well as possible storms, snow, spring flowers and more... the book heading out to beta readers and those I'm asking for potential endorsements on the text, or short comments for the front and back covers... April is the month of collating changes, improving the text further and hopefully the end of April here it comes!
Copies will be available in ebook, paperback and hardback versions and it'll be on print on demand, plus I plan to have copies available to sell direct too.
Thanks for reading and following the progress!
