A Summer to Love

A Summer to Love

Lyseo MotorhomeThis moonth sees an emergence as the easing of lock down begins. Some decisions have been made.

No more private clients or 1-2-1 work for me, just creation of books, meditations and course materials – and the odd online talk. The Zone Show podcast is also changing its model too away from interview format into being an audio-blog equivalent of this blog.

One of the reasons for such a change, is that my partner and are picking up a motorhome tomorrow – and we are going travelling. The plan is to wander around bits of the UK we’ve never been to this year and then over to Europe next year – with the aim of seeing the midnight sun a year from today, the 21st June 2021.

Soulwaves : Insertions

Soulwaves InsertionsAs is often the way, the idea for the next book came along unexpectedly. I wasn’t planning to write anything at all until at least 2021 but the Universe had other plans.

In the tradition of many a futuristic author (Isaac Asimov, Ursula le Guin, Ted Chiang and Charlie Brooker), this will be a compendium of short stories.

Soulwaves Insertions is a book of 12 tales about some of the ways the Council of the Light venture into the Density. The stories are both prequels, sequels and concurrent to Soulwaves.

While it stands alone from Soulwaves : A Future History, it can be read before or after it, as it fills in some of the gaps.

My plan is to publish it 13 ‘moonths’ after Soulwaves came out this year, on the first Full Moon of 2021 – and that the full book of The Duadex, referred to in this short story, and the end short story of this collection, comes out on the first Full Moon of 2022 – if we are all still here !!

You can listen to the first tale here called The Scroll – and I already have three more chapters written/downloaded. This won’t take as long as Soulwaves did!

The Soul-full PathLast Moonth’s Output

So this last month has seen four ‘new’ bits of content appearing on Insight Timer – a new guided meditation called Soul Warmth and two new ambient tracks for the Soulwaves Album.

And now the next book is coming my way, each moonth I am going to release, from my back catalog, either a whole audiobook (if short) or section of a book for free on Insight Timer. Leaving a legacy and breadcrumb trail is the best way by far to step into a life of abundance and freedom. It also helps the next books to come along.

So enjoy my first foray into philosophical writing called This We Know, somewhat coincidentally written entirely on a two week holiday in Devon in 2012.

What’s Happening Next Moonth?

Next moonth will see the release of another guided track called Voiding Karma, the next ambient track entitled The Great Attractor and the release of the next audiobook from the archive, This We Are – which is the sequel to This We Know.

More importantly and significantly, we will be making the first forays out into the world in our new motorhome. New locations result in new perspectives.

So I am planning to write some more of the book and new meditation scripts. I may also be recording ‘out in the field’ too as my trusty Yamaha SLG100 will be coming with us.

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 !!

Publish a book in a month

This We Know on an iPadLast year I wrote and published a book I had no idea I was about to write. I started writing it on the 3rd September and it was ready for publication on the 17th.

It shot into the top 10 books in Philosophy on the UK Kindle store by the end of September and the amazing reviews tell of the impact it is having on readers.

Here’s how I it came to pass …

Step 1: Have a Cracking Idea
I was watching my lovely partner snoozing on the sofa and wondered how many other people were also asleep right at that time. I also wondered how many people who were awake were also really ‘asleep’.
Step 2: Have an Immovable Deadline
I was presenting a workshop on creativity on the 27th September at Sadler’s Wells at the Transformational Media Summit and wondered if I could write a book with a big message – and get it published in time so I could use it as a case study for the journalists attending.
Step 3: Don’t Write a Big Book
To print a title and author name on the spine, you need about 100 pages or so. This equates to around 10,000-12,000 words. My aim was to write a book that could be read in a single commute or sitting.
Step 4: Learn How to Bend Time
I have been studying how we perceive the passage of time and I know some psychological and physiological ways to stretch time so we can get more done in less linear time. See Bending Time to find out how you can do this too.
Step 5: Write Short Chapters
A short chapter can be written and read in one session. What I do is meditate before each writing session for 20 minutes and I can then generate around 1000 words in an hour or so. The chapters in this book were actually around 500 words long so they could be re-syndicated in a blog.
Step 6: Review but Don’t Edit
Before writing each chapter, I review the previous chapter so I don’t duplicate and I ensure continuity and fluidity over the whole book. I only edit massive faux pas but don’t try and proof read or edit the whole. Incidentally, I normally Mind Map my books but this time it just came from ‘nowhere’.
Step 7: Know When To Finish
With epublication and print on demand, subsequent editions are easy. So when the 10,000 words or so are done and the base story is told, that’s time to wrap on this edition.
Step 8: Get Someone Else to Proof Read It
It’s impossible to mark your own homework so get professional, or a friend or colleague with an eye for detail, to read it and sanity check that it’s a Good Book and tells a solid story.
Step 9: Format It Nicely and Upload It to a PoD or ePub service
I use the CompletelyNovel print on demand service for my print books as it is so easy – and support is brilliant. Books normally arrive in 5 to 7 days. I uploaded it on the 17th of September and the box below arrived on the 20th in just three days!!
Step 10: Spread The Word
After finding a couple of other errors in the print books (so much easier than on screen), I uploaded it to the Amazon KDP platform and by the 21st September, it was available to download globally for less than the price of a cup of coffee. A few tweets and Facebook posts later and the reviews started flying in.

First delivery of This We Know

So That Was 2012 !!

2012 2013Well that was a bit of a year !!

Before launching into 2013 (and taking a well deserved holiday in the sun), I thought it worth wrapping up the year on this blog with a bit of a summary of the journey I’ve been on this year.
Strangely, the only thing I had vaguely planned was to write Planes of Being but even then at the start of the year, the title and theme of the book weren’t fixed … roll on 2013 !!

So what’s planned for 2013?

Well not a lot as I am so looking forward to all the serendipities unfolding …

but I have a series of workshops planned for the last Thursday of each month – check out these happenings

… a book to co-author with the fabulous Vicki Wusche

… at least two new courses for Udemy

and the writing of next year’s opus on how to move to the next level of human evolution

So not much on really !!

Have a fabulous Xmas and stunning New Year


Writing and Publishing a Book in less than a Month

In September 2012, I wrote a book I wasn’t planning to write and published it in print and for Kindle in just 18 days, from start to finish.

Fellow author Jackie Walker did the same a week or so later!!

In this webinar, we describe the process we followed …
