Can we start out by telling us whether you are published for the first time or are you multi-published?
I have published 4 books so far.
When you were published for the first time, which route did you go – mainstream, small press, vanity published or self-published and why or how did you choose this route?
My first publisher was a spiritual corporation that was offering a self-publishing opportunity for spiritual authors for the first time. I chose this route because I received a lot of encouragement and help from this publishing team.
How long did it take you to get published once you signed the contract?
Not long at all. Approximately 6 months.
How did it make you feel to become published for the first time and how did you celebrate?
It was a dream come true and I felt as if I had won the lottery. We celebrated with a life interview on a spiritual network channel.
What was the first thing you did as for as promotion when you were published for the first time?
The book was launched at a major Spiritual Retreat in Hawaii where I did a book signing event.
