Why did you write the book? Organized religions have tried to suppress topics like the Law of Attraction even though they themselves, have used such laws. The book was written to help fulfil the prophecy that says “all that is hidden will be revealed.” It is further meant to show that spirituality and not religious dogma is at the heart of the teachings of the great Masters.
How does your book differ from others that are similar? To my knowledge, few if any authors on religious thought have taken the time to see what those like Jesus had to say on many current issues. Many take quotes out of context to prove dogmatic points. What I did is to see what Jesus had to say as a ‘stream of thought’ on the subject by putting all that he had to say in one place.
Why did you choose POD? The book is from a POD publisher but it is not self published. It has been released by a small press called Avatar Publication based in Canada. However, they distribute to the US, the UK (through Gardners) and South Africa.
How did you market your book? Avenues such as blogs like yours are one way to market. I also maintain my own blog, ALL THING THAT MATTER, have a web site, promote through author groups like NothingBinding, issue press releases, write articles for places like the American Chronicle, Ezines and I am listed as a spiritual expert on SelfGrowth.com that includes the likes of Oprah, Dr. Phil and well known spiritual authors.
What was the biggest challenge you had to overcome? From a marketing perspective it is the amount of time it takes to ‘be out there’ that is a challenge. My wife calls herself a book widow.
What would you say to others considering POD? Even bestselling authors are starting to go this route to publish their works. You keep control of the material and even small presses that use POD are easier to deal wuth because changes in the books are easier to make.
