I'm expecting the arrival of our first published book/journal on the 7th November and it will be very exciting to actually see it complete and beautifully bound (this is the front cover).
The purpose of our Journal for the Modern Goddess is for women to uncover the beautiful, unique and powerful Goddess that they really are. We encourage them to focus on aspects of their own life path – the inspiration and happiness they feel, the strength and wisdom they find in times of change and the dreams and visions for their own future.
Each section offers questions for them to explore as well as affirmations for moving forward.
Our companion guided meditation CD provides them with sacred journeys that will inspire and encourage them to create positive life patterns. This will help them to recognise and invite magic, inspiration and loving energy into their life.
Two tracks on the CD are recorded by me and the other track is recorded by my business partner, Tara Spicer. Tara painted our modern goddess image on the front cover.
We are launching our journal on the 25th November in conjunction with White Ribbon Day. 10% of our sales from the pre-launch and launch day (in Australia) will be donated to the White Ribbon Foundation. The foundation provides educational strategies to eliminate violence against women.
We will also be kick starting our Virtual Book Tour... it's just like a real life book tour but it's online and in the comforts of our own home; pj's, bed hair and all. We have a number of blogs and sites lined up to host a visit from us to promote our journal. It's all very exciting!!!
10% of our online sales from the VBT will be going to sponsoring a business or two through Kiva. Kiva lets you connect with and loan money to unique small businesses in the developing world. I have lent to 2 small businesses, $25USD each and they've both paid me back so I've reinvested my money into 2 new small businesses. Monies raise will continue be put back into small businesses through Kiva.
