It took a long time and then, it happened, a publishing contract for my memoir. I am not famous. No one dies. There are no issues of abuse or addiction. "Memoir is the low-hanging fruit," I was told by an editor. And yet, TEACHING WILL: What Shakespeare and 10 Kids Gave Me That Hollywood Couldn't (Familius) will be released on August 12. Exhale. Relief. Low-hanging fruit is ripe.

It’s time for a happy dance! I’m delighted to announce that I have a contract with BuddhaPuss Ink LLC  for the publication of my novel, IN THE CONTEXT OF LOVE.

After years of hard work that includes writing and editing, securing a literary agent, the disappointment of the manuscript not selling, being sidelined by a family tragedy, more writing and editing – writers take heart — I am proof that if you believe in something don’t let it go!

The second edition of my award-winning women's guide to Paris is now up on Kickstarter (through July 8th). The funding will help pay for my family-owned, green-certified printer here in France, allowing me to choose quality, the environment and local businesses over the cheaper "Printed in China" option.

I'll be blogging about the (hopefully successful) experience here once it's over, but in the mean time it would lean a lot to me if you ladies could help spread the word! http://bit.ly/naughtyparis 

Merci!

I'm thrilled to announce that my first book, Your Ultimate Life Plan, has just won it's 12th book award!

The book awards include:

  • a 2013 Gold Nautilus Book Award
  • a Gold Readers’ Favorite Int’l Book Award
  • 2 USA Best Book Awards
  • a Silver Benjamin Franklin Award
  • a Finalist medal in the ForeWord Book of the Year Awards
  • and a 2014 Finalist medal in the Next Generation Indie Book Awards

Lama Surya Das wrote the book's foreword, and I’ve gotten glowing endorsements from Dr. Michael Beckwith, Dr. Bernie Siegel, Sharon Salzberg, Richard Rohr, Rabbi Rami Shapiro, Guy Finley, and Melody Beattie, among others.

Are you ready to live the life you’ve always dreamed of? Your Ultimate Life Plan will help you step boldly into your next, deeper level of happiness, wholeness, transformation and success. The distillation of my 20-plus years of experience as a licensed psychotherapist, energy healer, and spiritual teacher, this “workshop in a book” is the missing “how to” for moving past your problems into a richer, more meaningful life. It will help you do more than understand Wholeness, you will experience it. Why settle for average, when the potential to live an amazing life is inside you, right now.

Praise for my new book: 

"Cathedral McCormick has the killer app for a novice private investigator: The ability to enter other people’s dreams. But there are real killers in Cat’s first case, and learning to manage her gift in a world of secrets, betrayal and nightmares is only the start of her troubles. Gripping, sexy and profound, Cat in the Flock is an excellent first novel. Lisa Brunette is an author to enjoy now and watch for the future."

 

--Jon Talton, author of the David Mapstone Mysteries, the Cincinnati Casebooks and the thriller Deadline Man
