Greetings fellow people of hot vax summer of ’21. I have been holding onto this for quite sometime. Welcome to this moment of truth!
- Not having the luxury of a second set of eyes that cared enough to chime in
- Not having the luxury of feedback, reviews, likes or shares around my work from ANY PERSON that I know or thought I had a rapport with
- And also, not having the luxury of anyone I am acquainted with, READ MY BOOKS (not that I am aware of anyway, now that I’m not front & center in the restaurant business)
HAS SHOWN ME… one: I have managed to dissolve, disengage & basically shed every single relationship I ever had, to the point where absolutely no one in this world feels they have any allegiance to me what-so-ever (that’s an odd position) two: it’s not over til it’s over, I’m definitely not quitting now, three: sooner or later the Universe will reach me through complete strangers. Thank God for small favors.
Apparently, good deeds & good constructive criticism only come from random people I don’t know, in my case. And, after asking for feedback from literally HUNDREDS of people I do know or am somewhat acquainted with… I got nothing. Radio silence, except for ONE review from my ex boyfriend’s mom, who appears to be my #1 fan. Turns out, I don’t have friends… or family or what you would call a “support system.” Because if I did, I would at least have a handful of reviews without having to chase people or hunt them down. Right?
That said, for lack of any evidence to the contrary, I am going to have to rely on strangers from now on. However, don’t be surprised if I start to reach out personally to you or anyone I think can still rate or review my books in good faith.
All the time! THIS>>>
I celebrate everyone’s posts, photos, families, breakthroughs, big moves, pregnancies, babies, kids, new relationships, engagements, weddings, announcements, anniversaries, trips, vacations, graduations, special days, & landmark moments.
Well… THIS IS MINE, people, in case you haven’t noticed. I never got to have any of the typical aforementioned things really, & I am okay with that, but for god’s sake. It’s a little disheartening to say the least. I may not require validation from others, but just because a person is evolved, secure & loves themselves, doesn’t mean they can’t call a spade. Whatever happened to support from the community or neighborly wisdom? It only takes a minute to leave a rating or review or a comment.
That said, thanks to a dude from a zoom room in a webinar I was attending on optimizing Amazon books sales, did I even NOTICE my COVERS, were completely subpar. Like, way below a level of excellence. So obviously in fact, that I was in shock I didn’t even notice all this time.
Turns out, judging a book by its cover is 100% en vogue. People absolutely DO… go off first impressions. Your teeth, the kind of shoes you wear, car you drive, or how unkempt your bathroom, bed or kitchen might be. Let’s not sugarcoat. Covers MATTER. Big time. Not like in an extreme superficial way, but in a way that only makes sense.
The meat, the flavor, the content of character, the mind, the soul… yes. But, there is an unmistakable alluring intrigue to what encases them. The essence of the within should be represented without with a certain degree of delicate equivalence. After all… the face, body, package, casing or cover, is what engages us first. It is what draws us in, speaks to our feels & advertises the goods. “We do indeed, eat with our eyes.” Said every good chef I ever worked with.
All this time I have managed to not be the slightest bit privy to certain really important details. It’s kinda embarrassing & almost seems like a big fat cruel joke that I have been in the dark all this time. And it’s no one’s fault per se… it was just not the right time. But, for the record… the content of character that these books exemplify deserves a casing that matches… 10-fold. Better late than never, I guess.
I suspect I have been somewhat consumed (ya think?) & rather distracted by all the extreme focus it takes to build a worthy enterprise. Writing, editing, publishing, recording, marketing, creating content, a channel, website & podcast, attending classes, modules, workshops & webinars, doing consciousness upgrades, energy activations, & clearing the karmic cache… is no small feat.
Well, cheers to my success then, that had been pretty much pending all this time due to this major discrepancy & a few other superficial wounds. Maybe NOW, it has a fighting chance. One can only hope…
Kudos to THIS GUY>>> https://geoffaffleck.com/amazon
Cheers! To DIYers everywhere!
All FIVE books now have curb appeal. Each one has been optimized inside & out, updated, renovated & re-released to: rock—your—world. Yes, YOU.
Tap on my Amazon Author Page to witness the power of curb appeal.
With all that said, I don’t just write books, I write revolutionary game changers that can potentially change lives for the better in a monumental way. I believe there is a great need for the poignant perspective that my books provide… or else, I would be a fool to put forth so much time & effort towards something potentially irrelevant. I would be a fool to believe in something potentially futile or fruitless. I would be a fool to promote something that possibly contained the ramblings of a self-absorbed, unenlightened, dull & uninteresting played-out perspective.
I would be a sitting duck for “dud-dom,” where all vanity projects go to die. Where the relics of every single thing done in vain, lie in a final resting place of never going anywhere or reaching anyone. The failed projects graveyard, if you will. I would be chasing some kind of pipedream that was never a real possibility in the first place. I’d be the poster child for dumbass.
Well… that’s simply not the case here. I didn’t compose books out of thin air, for my simple satisfaction, to fill up some void writhing with neediness, to prove I am worthy of some semblance of some sort of success to show up the naysayers, to exonerate my inner child or to escape from some mundane lonely life I miscreated.
No. I channeled the books from a Divine force, the same one that created you, me, the earth, sea & sky. I have been at this for quite some time, like since I was a kid. I do what I love & love what I do at this point. It’s passion & purpose that drives my plight. My WHY is to liberate the human community one book at a time, (and to also live worry free with a few extra cats for the rest of my life in the island beach bungalow with my name on the deed… so I can host killer weekend retreats). This isn’t a hobby or side gig. This is my life’s work.
I may indeed not have a support system, a family that gives a hoot, a couple of really great kids I raised that folks praise me for, or a team behind me working hard to make this happen. I may indeed be singlehandedly pouncing to new heights all by myself. But, I have a bunch of spirit guides & Angels guiding me through all this. These books weren’t written for any other reason than to serve mankind to the fullest extent of cosmic law. All who are meant to receive the unique & valuable bountiful blessings they bring… may you come forth now & tap below. And leave some godamn reviews, thanks. Namaste. 🙂
