Love, Life and Beyond a novel with a non-fictional slant!
Our world is in so much pain, only because we on a whole feel like we have lost our way. I had come across a wonderful and simple solutions to remedy this pain. A simple solution that works. But how was I going to help people to find their way to a joyful life? Then an idea came to me. And this is what conclusion I came up with. I am a fictional writer first. I then wrote and published five non-fiction books on the subjects dearest to my heart about this new discovery that changed my life to wondrous joy. What I discovered was real. How could I blend the two? A much sort out writing coach told me my idea couldn’t be done.
By then I had discovered the Master Key System by Charles Haanel which says,
“Imagination is the mighty instrument by which every discoverer, every inventor, opened the way from precedent to experience. President said, “It cannot be done,” experience said, ‘It is done.” – Part 8, paragraph 9
I understood I had to move away from this fear and go ahead and write what my gut feeling was telling me to write. And so, I went ahead and wrote Love, Life and Beyond on what I now call the vulnerability of fear within a fictional story.
I have learned many valuable lessons through my journey by watching other people’s lives. Universal laws are simple but because we have learned so many false premises throughout our lives of how we should act, think and be we have lost our way to finding our joy, which is ultimately why we are here. When I found my way back to manifest anything that I wanted and was able to take control of my life the way I wanted, by doing the things that I wanted to do at all times—I felt I needed to pass this on.
And so the idea was born to show you my valuable readers the way to all what you desire through the lives of these characters in this story.
Through this story you can see what life is inviting you to do and be, through these fictional characters.
In my book Love, Life and Beyond Anne, who is a woman of racist values dies of a brain aneurism. In the afterlife she makes an agreement to go back and change the racist ideas that she had imparted on to her daughter and her family. However, there is a catch—she is born black and doesn’t know anything about her agreement. How can she possibly succeed to save a family who have nothing but hate for her? And what happens when through their hate a hate of her own towards them is born? Through the help of her non-physical mentors a way is lit up. However, Ann now Nova does not know of these non-physical entities or their purpose. Without her awareness, how will these mentors show her the way when she has her own free will of choice and is oblivious to them?
These lovable mentors not only explain why certain incidents, circumstances and people show up in the characters’ lives but also your life. How can this be?
Read Love, Life and Beyond and find out how this is all possible. You can now buy it on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Chapters Indigo. eBooks are distributed to the Apple iBookstore, Amazon Kindle Store, Google Play Bookstore, Nook Store and the Kobo Store. Also find it on my author page on Goodreads.

How to use marketing for your self published book.
We are going to share with you exactly how you can use marketing for your self publishing to give yourself an unfair advantage whether you’re an experienced author or just starting out.
Traditional publishing has made a major turn-around from the time when a self published book was a complete no-no in the eyes of a major publishing house. Now these same publishing houses such as Hay House, Simon & Schuster, Penguin, Random House, and even Harlequin have jumped on board and are using their own self publishing divisions. They realize that people who self publish are saving them big money and a major gamble on whether the book will hit the # 1 New York Times Bestseller list or not, without them having to invest in your book.
So, let’s talk about the real benefits of self publishing compared to publishing with a traditional publisher.
Little do people realize that a self published book has a much greater chance of getting a major contract these days than a book that is facing a mountain of query letters and hoping to be randomly picked out of that query pile. But there is a big if in this statement that could possibly be in your way. This can happen for you IF you know how to market your book. Many make the mistake that me and W.T made ourselves, which was to self publish our first book without a marketing plan. When our marketing adviser asked us what we were doing as far as marketing the book we hadn’t a clue. And our book was already out there. We didn’t understand at that time that we had to wear the hat of publisher and momentarily take off the author hat.
We published with Balboa publishing a division of Hay House. Our marketing adviser encouraged us to pay over four thousand dollars to have a book signing booth at the “I Can Do It,” in Toronto. “I Can Do It” is a great forum for major authors, they give a champion talk then do book signing and sell a ton of books. We unknowns pay to have a booth and then give our books away for free. Even so, it was lovely being there and we gave away signed copies of all of our books!!
Although it was exciting it didn’t bring any profit, in fact we didn’t even see a return on our investment. We soon learned that many authors had planted major money into their work and haven’t seen any return on their book sales either.
All we had at that time was our website with a few blogs on. We actually went through our career initially working from the rear, so to speak. In other words, we published and then learned all about marketing and the value of social media, networking and running a well visited website, after the fact. The problem with this way of doing things is that we missed out on some major opportunities and the book got rather stale and passed its due date by the time we understood the market.
As you are fully aware writing a book takes a long time and much creative effort to achieve the finished product. Regardless, we learned that there is a due date to a book once released and that is in the first year, in fact that is stretching it somewhat since the best way to market your book should start prior to your book ever entering the market, and then the first three months of your book is imperative in reaching your audience. However, it’s never too late, there is still an open window waiting for your book if you are willing to follow some training in marketing.
Actually, we have a really simple and inexpensive way to get your book in front of an audience of thousands of people very quickly. And that is just one way we are now offering help to you. You just have to remember that a good book is a good book and nothing should stop it if you have some good marketing in place and a will to market it.
We can help because we’ve been there and done that, due to our “unfortunate” beginnings!
But we learned how to get around these stumbling blocks and we now have five self published books, considered by many to be a fascinating exploration into personal development. Four of these books we completely published ourselves from scratch to finish. We have an expert page on self growth.com. If you’re not familiar with Self Growth it has 2 million monthly visitors so we’re honored to have our articles published there. We are also expert authors in the Change book 10 among 20 other experts in that book and working with multi millionaire speakers, Jim Lutes and Jim Britt. We have a website with thousands of visitors and thousands of people following us on twitter, Facebook, google plus and LinkedIn. Plus many YouTube video’s which we make ourselves.
And so we went from zero knowledge to publishing our own work, marketing it, getting awesome reviews and press releases, and now helping other authors like you to do the same.
Our goal is to pass all of what made it work for us onto you.
We are fully aware that there are a tremendous amount of people out there offering packages to help self publishers to market their book. Yet, there is also another component that is essential, that usually isn’t offered in a marketing package which we provide, and that is self confidence. We offer this because we have come to understand that self doubt about moving forward is the most defeating way to take the power from not only you but your valuable creation, your book.
The self doubt comes from those messages that you have been listening to since you were a child. Those messages come to you through the egoic mind. That hidden entity we call self talk. This voice will always tell you that you shouldn’t listen to positive messages about yourself or your work. It convinces you that you’re not up to par with all those other authors out there. It often repeats that your creation cannot bring in an income. Unfortunately, it’s a very real voice and it wants you to fail. I suffered from these messages for years and I always managed to self defeat my book along with my moving forward, because I listened to that voice.
Since, I’ve spent four years studying universal psychology and learned how this hidden entity works in our lives in posing doubt at every opportunity. Now, I’d like to be very effective in sharing with you how to let it go. Which means, I’d like to show you some ideas that I get a lot of results from, which will crush any self doubt, so you can make what I call moves that will get you big results. Besides marketing which is very important to you and your career in writing, it is also a must to overshadow that voice that forever offers self doubt.
I understand that for many of you it’s working at this very moment. I understand that it can make a choice much more difficult at times. And I want you to know that we are only here to offer to you another choice that can really help you take that step forward. A choice that will help you learn how to overcome challenges in marketing your book and learn to overcome any defeating challenges and hurdles along the way.
As a bonus offer, I will coach in those self defeating areas while W.T assists you in the marketing, so you won’t be left to struggle forward with a book and a lot of unanswered questions.
When I understood the egoic mind it was a huge transformation not only in my personal life but also in my career. And now we’re here to offer all what we’ve learned to you personally, in a one on one for a limited time. So you too will have the ability to create your writing career, sell your books and get that awesome offer from a publisher. Or, lets face it if you’re doing that well who needs a traditional publisher! Unless they make that offer that you just can’t resist!
We created this package so that you didn’t have to go down the same road we have and many other authors of spending mega money on packages that just didn’t work. We believe that authors should have a choice to get the marketing training and personal development skills they need without the high prices. This is why we are also including our new book, How to Attract Thousands to Your Book, when you sign up for our training.
We have been led to you and you to us. This is how universal laws work. We’re here to make a difference in your life. And this is about you getting that book that is uniquely yours out into the world.
This is your time to take action and unlock limiting beliefs to bring your creation to its greatest success, after all isn’t that why you wrote the book in the first place? And for those of you that are contemplating writing a book this offer is a great way to start. Getting the marketing in place is key to the published finish, that’s if you want your book to go further than the publication of it in your hands alone.
You have a choice now, to either go back to business as usual, and everything will stay the same, or take the leap with us and take your creation, market it the right way and start attracting your ideal readers.
What we want for you is to make a decision to take that next step with us so you can create your own prosperous future. If you want to invest in your book, this is the place to do it.
Thank you for stepping into your own greatness. It’s an honor to share these gifts with you, and we’re excited to have our work support your work so that you can get out there in such a big way.
To start this incredible journey with us go to our shop, or side bar and click on the Book Marketing package $497.00 and don’t forget the bonus coaching and books. So don’t miss out on these amazing bonus offers.

Facebook was a wonderful tool and has provided many a great way to connect with potential customers, clients and fans. But the world of change has knocked on Facebook’s door too and the answer isn’t pretty.
If you have a Facebook business page or if you are thinking about starting one please read this entire article. I am not trying to sell you anything. I just want to save you some heartache and disappointment.
By forces beyond predictability I found myself writing a book with my mother. This created an unlikely duo and led us on an amazing adventure. Once we wrote and published our first book we realized that we had to learn how to market it. Hence, we found we needed a Facebook page for the book. Not knowing anything about setting up or managing a Facebook page I turned to www.standoutbooks.com for help. Little more than a year ago we experienced the birth of our Facebook page.
It was so exciting. It was like entering a new marriage. Each day I would add content and build up the page likes. We were seeing our reaches grow and our followers grow weekly on Facebook. Our posts we getting a few likes each time and we rarely seen a post that didn’t receive any likes. People were engaged.
Once we reach 1,000 page likes I began to boost my page to reach more fans. If you are not familiar with boosting on Facebook it is a way that you can target your post to reach a your ideal fan. There are many options you can choose to narrow down your target so that you can reach the people who most likely will want to see your posts in their newsfeed. You can also set the budget. It is a great tool and I used it often.
I was able to build my Facebook likes to 6,500+. All was awesome in my world so I thought. But as I started to really look at the numbers as compared to my post reaches, I could see that I was only reaching around 100 people per post. On top of that, I would receive 5-10 likes per post. I was close to that when I only had 1,000 page likes with no post boosts. Now I am spending money and seeing very low interaction.
Further more, when I boosted a post I would reach 2,000-5,000 people and get 700 – 1,000 likes but the posts after that would be back down to 100 reaches with 5 – 10 likes. The marriage was running into problems. The bliss was dying and the frustration was building. It’s like the marriage was only working if I spent money on it. But the money wasn’t bringing back the results I wanted.
Then it happened. I woke up one morning and submitted a post and I seen by the end of the day I only reached 10 people. At first I was in shock. I started to look at my content to see what I did wrong. The next day I posted again figuring the day before was just a fluke. But I was met with the same results. My Facebook post only reached 10 people. No likes, where did all my fans go?
Then the shock of this failing marriage set aside and I realised that the fans didn’t go anywhere. Facebook didn’t let them see my posts. That’s why the post only reach 10 people. Facebook only allowed it to reach 10 peoples feed even though I had 6,500+ people signed up to follow my posts. Now I was flat out angry. I spent money to build up my followers with Facebook boosts so I could reach more people. So I sent a complaint directly to Facebook.
At the same time I started to investigate and guess what I found?
Facebook. Death of the Small Business Page.
What I found out is Facebook is limiting the business posts that you can see on your personal newsfeed. If they deem your posts as too promotional they will limit who can see it.
So what qualifies as a post that is “too promotional?”
According to Facebook, it’s the following:
Posts that solely push people to buy a product or install an app
Posts that push people to enter promotions and sweepstakes with no real context
Posts that reuse the exact same content from ads
So what this does is make Facebook an ineffective tool for a business page. The reason to have a page is to engage with fans and promote your product or service to potential fans. Without the ability to promote your products or services what is the real point of having a Facebook business page? If no one is going to see your post, why post?
Once I knew this I noticed that the pages I follow on my personal Facebook page seldom showed up on my newsfeed. The superstars and products that I wanted to keep updated on where also being limited in my newsfeed. I never really noticed before. I guess I just thought they weren’t posting. I also noticed that things that I am not interested in were making it into my newsfeed. I suspect via boosted posts.
It was the moment that I realized that the marriage was over. But like most people in marriages that go bad I still hold on hoping that it will change and become great like it used to be. I still post once in awhile just because I am having a hard time letting go.
I know one day my Facebook page will be like that song from Gotye and I will say, Facebook is “ Somebody that I Used to Know”.
Please leave a comment or advice on how I can make my Facebook marriage great again. Oh yeah, to leave a comment you have to use your Facebook account. LOL. I guess I’ll need to change that to Google+.

The internet is the life line for some of us. I am on the internet constantly. I am checking our website to see how it is performing.
I am tracking our social media sites. I am communicating through e-mail and texting. I don’t think I could go a day without it.
So when I talked to Pamela Hamilton (My Mom) the other day and she said that she wouldn’t have access to the internet this week I was blown away. I couldn’t imagine going a week without Google! She is finishing her last week of her winter vacation. She is enjoying the beaches and luxuries of the resort life. I can understand not checking the internet constantly this week but to not have access at all?!?!
Celebrate the little steps along the way is an easy way to stay focused on achieving your goals. I use this technique all the time.
I find it makes a big difference in allowing me to be patient with the pace of the journey.One of the secrets of the universe is that everything you achieve comes from effort. The amount of effort you put in is the amount of fruit you get back. As we said before the Universe mirror’s back to you what you think about and focus on.
Your time is yours to spend doing the things that make you happy and satisfied but they are not always the same thing.
Sometime you can be happy but you are not satisfied with where you are. This is a tricky balance to master. To feel happy about where you are and to be satisfied with the steps you are taking to get to where you want to go.
You need to first make sure you are doing things that you like and that are making you feel good at the end of the day. This is important when trying to develop and grow your ability to bring the things you want into your life. If how you are living or spending your time right now is not making you happy then you will need to find ways to feel happy with where you are at the moment. Continue reading Happy and Satisfied?→
