Tell us about Loving You, Michelle. What sets it apart from other self-help books?
Loving You is an inspirational improve your life book, that is quite different from other self-help books in that I have used my gifts as an energy healer and Divine Channel to infuse this book with Divine healing energies. This means that you are receiving healing energies as you hold and read the book and those who are tuned into feeling healing energies can even feel them when they look at the front cover! So they may have goose bumps, tingles or feelings of hot or cold or light headed which are all signs of the energy working on you! Then of course you have the actual content of the book, which is light hearted and easy to read, but opening up your mind to other ways to think and live your life, choosing your own happiness over what friends, family and society think you should do with your life!
It contains some easy and fun to do exercises and has releasing statements that are healing you as you read them. Loving You is really quite unique, healing you as you read so by the end of the book you’re already feeling a happier more confident person ready to live your life as YOU!
Did you have the book planned out before you wrote it? Did anything unexpected happen while writing it?
No! I was guided to write this book, and didn’t really know where to start, but once I started writing, the words just started to flow. A few times I wasn’t sure what to write next, but then I left if for a while or overnight and then the flow came back again the next day.
Did you find anything challenging about writing your book?
This is my first book and I consider myself to be an energy healer not an author, so the biggest challenge was to just accept and believe I could write a book. I had been sharing information in emails, Facebook groups and my blog so I was used to writing and when I am giving advice it flows from my heart and is easy to write. I found the structure of the book a bit challenging as my writing experience was much shorter articles, but I made each chapter like a long blog post and that made it easier for me!
Do you have a specific writing style or process that you prefer?
I’ve had a few reviews that have said that my writing style is like having a chat and a coffee with me! So yes I do tend to write as if I am talking to the reader and most people really like this easy to read and light hearted style of writing. Some of my energy clients said they felt like they could hear me reading the book out to them!
Who designed your cover?
I discussed ideas with my two teenage daughters, both good at art and between us we came up with the design for the cover. We sent the ideas to the publisher, Balboa Press, and they then came up with the finished cover.
Are you working on anything else?
Right now I am busy with my energy healing work. I have had ideas for more books and also some Divine Energy Cards, bit like Angel Cards, but I’ve been recording new audios for ‘Opening Your Heart’ to support the global shift energies.
What book are you reading now?
Well actually I’m reading NAKED TRUTHS About Getting Book Reviews by Gisela Hausmann as I am totally new to being an author and getting reviews etc. I have to say that it is a great book and has inspired me to promote my book, before I was feeling totally clueless and overwhelmed!
Is there anything else you’d like to share with my readers?
I have some interviews coming up with tele-summits and even an on-line video interview which will be exciting! I have an events page on my website which details my upcoming calls etc.
Michelle, it sounds like you’ve really gone the extra length to make your book beneficial to readers. I’m sure many will find it to be an inspiring addition to their collection. Thank you for sharing!
