It was four years ago this week that I published Domestic Detox with my partner in crime at the time Lorna Emblen.
Happy Birthday Domestic Detox
What a ride that was, and we had so much fun collaborating with all the contributing authors and taking them along for the ride.
Now I would love to say that it snuck up on us but I had wanted to be a published author since my early teens so it was actually a long journey of discovery for me which probably made it an even sweeter experience.
The reason I bring this up now is not just to say happy birthday Domestic Detox, but because it is an incredibly appropriate time to officially announce that earlier this year I made the decision to transition from counselling into full time publishing.
MJL Publications now has my full attention.
I have been very busy setting things up so that I can make that happen and I am as ready to go forth and publish as I will ever be.
So why am I doing this you may or may not ask? Because I love it so much I am willing to take a risk and give it my best shot.
It took a lot of courage as well as technique to make my dream a reality. But once I’d done it, I was hooked. I knew I wanted to keep doing it, and I wanted to continue helping others to do it too.
So far I have helped almost 40 aspiring authors to realise their dreams of becoming published authors, and there are so many more untold stories out there that truly deserve to be in print.
There are still so many untold stories that deserve to be in print.
I love finding out what drives people and I believe that everyone deserves to be heard.
I also believe that given the opportunity and the right circumstances, everyone has the ability to change the world.
Everyone deserves to be heard and everyone has the ability to change the world.
I could think of no greater honour than to be a part of that process and even help to facilitate it.
So it is my intention to focus on improving my ability to create a safe and supportive space and create the scaffolding necessary for aspiring authors to get vulnerable, share their stories and make a real difference to the world.
I have some amazing opportunities to contribute to compilation books coming up as well as some very accessible solo publishing packages on offer so stay tuned for future announcements.
