Welcome to my Sunday Showcase where I am delighted to feature wonderful authors and illustrators. Everyone has successfully journeyed the path of publishing with my guidance and I am so proud to share interesting insights into what makes them unique.
I am delighted to introduce my first author, Elle Wilson, author of The Power Shift that launched this week. You can grab your copy here.
|1. Where do you get your ideas?||From that quiet place within.|
|2. If you could be anywhere in the world where would it be and why?||Right where I am at the moment. That’s how we find inner peace.|
|3. How did publishing your first book change your writing process?||It didn’t really at all, it just reinforced how publishing a book has so many levels to it and how beautiful it was to trust the right people turn up to mold the book perfectly without losing its beauty and message. It has been amazing.|
|4. Do you have any strange writing habits?||Waking up very early in the morning at 5am and just making sure my energy is flowing. Where I position myself in my office is important. I add a little feng shui to my writing. Sound strange 🙂|
|5. What is your favourite quote?||When you choose the entire universe alters.|
|6. How do you choose the names for your characters?||For my fairy stories the names just rise up within me and I just know they are perfect. I listen deeply I guess.|
|7. Which of your characters would you be least likely to get along with?||Hmm… I would say some of the little pixies in my fairy stories, but in reality, I don’t really have any. In The Power Shift, it is a non-fiction so I don’t have characters in this book.|
|8. What literary character is most like you?||Rafiki|
|9. What is the most difficult thing about writing a character from the opposite sex?||Really stepping into their shoes and representing them in a deep and meaningful way. Looking for the essence of where they are coming to capture them in their entirety and represent them to the reader even though we think and are so different.|
|10. What is the hardest thing about writing?||I adore writing, right now it just not having enough time to write more often. Writing opens my heart and really allows me to bring through original thought.|
|11. What got left out of the final draft?||There were some case studies that we ended up leaving out of The Power Shift.|
|12. If you could tell your younger self anything what would it be?||Life is perfect as it is and to remember all change begins with first opening our hearts to what we are in right now. Be kind to yourself and others. Peace and love hold more value than anything else in life.|
