It’s Powtoon Time

Created Using PowtoonBig Thanks to Lea Woodward and Jackie Walker for pointing me earlier this year at the most fabulous animation tool called Powtoon.

It allows ‘numpties’ like me to put together pretty amazing trailers for product and book promotions – there’s just a few examples below of what you can do with it.

And even better still, they have invited me to do a animation series on how best to communicate a message in Just a Minute … watch the trailer here

Powtoon Application #001 : Product Promotion

I prepared this short trailer to promote my Bending Time ecourse

Powtoon Application #002 : Web Site Landing Page

Here’s a trailer for a new web site for the marvellously talented Sue Warwick

Powtoon Application #003 : Book Trailer

This is an example for a book trailer

Powtoon Application #004 : Presentations & eLearning

I even used Powtoon to build a whole Udemy training course based on an earlier book called Flavours of Thought. This animation is just one of 30 in the course which comprise over 160 minutes of animated content – phew !!

Flavours of Thought New Edition

I am so thrilled to announce that, less than a year since I wrote the original book, Flavours of Thought is now in its Second Edition.

The second edition of course includes all the ancient wisdom in the same contemporary context as the first but now there are some added juicy bits such as:

– Seven brand new Chef’s Special Recipes (as requested by Facebook Fans)

– a brand new section on Practical Floughtology which includes

– how to concoct your own recipes

– how to use the flavours in business with five new recipes

– three special recipes on how to create abundance

The Second Edition is available straight away in the Amazon Kindle Store

Amazon UK

Amazon US

Amazon DE – but in English, any publishers who would like to republish and translate, get in touch

The second edition print version is also available directly for orders placed on CompletelyNovel but will take a few weeks to ripple through the online publishing world – get the print version here


If you already have a copy of the first edition and want the new parts of the book, I will email them to you as an ebook absolutely free – yep, for nothing, nada.

All you have to do to keep everything in karmic balance is write a review on Amazon (or any other online book store or site), let me know when it’s up and I will wing it over to you. Can’t say fairer than that !!!

What People Are Saying About It

“It’s brilliant! I love the idea of thinking about thoughts in a way that encourages my intuition, without embroiling me in my intellect.”

“This book is intrinsically simple. Simple to read; simple to understand; simple to apply. Its simplicity is what makes it genius.”

“This book takes personal development it to a different level. No stuffy 50 year old theories that people still hang their hats on. Refreshing, thought provoking and inspirational.”

“I find it absolutely fascinating and I read parts of it every day. It inspires me and is already enabling me to make adjustments and to fine tune areas of my life that are in need.”

“Oh my, you are brilliant with your wit and insight.”

“This is a delightfully simple journey into self development that can be used to build a much larger and more powerful framework. I believe it hints at an even greater innovation for the personal development industry. I thoroughly recommend you read it and judge for yourself.”

“Through gaining an understanding of the flavours in my thought process and applying the recipes, I am now positively dealing with being hurt and rejected and using them to remove frustration and to find my soul path.”

“I have applied recipes to my business, to my writing and to the way I chose to live. I can now see that in every situation, I have a glass half full mentality where before there may have been despair.”

“I am completely blown away by the concept of just 21 flavours creating zillions of recipes to enrich your life. You take our basic thought processes simplify them, map them and then suggest ways recipes to open up new thought process.”

“This is one inspirational, magical and thought changing book that has the power to change your very being.”

“This is a unique, insightful and thoroughly enjoyable read. If there is a more accessible way of accessing and understanding these issues then I have not, as yet, come across it. Tom has opened up a perspective to our thoughts, emotions and behaviour that is insightful and compelling. Thoroughly unique and enjoyable I will certainly be using this book time and again to follow the recipes as given and to create some of my own.”

“Tom’s a master at taking a concept and pushing it … he’s done it simply and accessibly. Readers have no option but to wake up and taste differences in their lives in all manner of ways. My feeling it is a turning point for many readers.”

“Flavours of Thought is so easy to read I hardly knew I was reading it. I ‘woke up’ from it feeling refreshed, calm and ready to embrace my fulfilment.”

“This is a delicious recipe book, filled with fresh ideas for thinking outside of the box. On first pass, I bookmarked several ‘recipes’ that resonated with me quite deeply and on my second read I discovered the richness that comes from combining deceptively simple ideas! If you are looking for a new way to think about your goals, challenges and emotions in light-hearted yet effective way then Flavours of Thought will certainly whet your appetite!”

What are Floughts?

I coined the word flought as a contraction of Flavours of Thought.

Retrospectively, I’ve made it a new noun and given it some definitions …

Flought : noun

1. the flavour of a thought
2. the flow of a thought
3. a flood of thoughts
a flurry of thought
the fluency of our thoughts
the flourish of a thought
a fluorescence of thought – aka a light bulb moment

If you have read my new book Flavours of Thought and found it intriguing, you may be thinking a couple of things …

1. Where did all that wisdom come from?

2. What else can you do with it?

If you haven’t read it, click here – you can even read it for free online at Completely Novel

Well, I will own up to not being the generator or possessor of that wisdom.

I am merely “the Translator” bringing ancient wisdom into a contemporary framework and context. What you have in this book is a translation, précis and simulacrum of the Major Arcana of the Tarot.

Furthermore, when I wrote the book, I was aware of two things:

1. There are many more than the initial 21 flavours and I will “translate” and “publish” more next year – these will come from the Minor Arcana and other arcane sources of symbology.

2. As it says in the book, there are many more than the 21 sample recipes.

Like all recipes however, there is a difference between throwing food in the microwave to warm it up and cooking a gastronomic delight worthy of a Michelin Star or three.

For this reason, I am proud to announce the launch of the Master Chef training programme.

Who is the programme for?

  • Coaches, healers and therapists wanting a new set of tools
  • Seekers of the Muse – artists, musicians, writers, scientists
  • Parents and teachers
  • Explorers of the mind

Training is carried out at my offices in the Surrey Hills or over Skype and desktop share for three people at a time.

A certain level of enlightenment is required before you will be accepted for the training and the badge of Master Chef is awarded upon the successful completion of post tasking.
