It’s been a couple of weeks now since Finding Heart Horse has been free. I experience waves of emotion as if I have just given birth and in a sense that’s what releasing a book is. It’s your word baby, a chronically, a story, a life of it’s own. For years you nurture it with phrases, favourite words, descriptions, coffee stains, tears and love and then you set it free to live it’s own life. Terrifying and freeing at the same time.
This past week I have been working with an amazing photographer Nathan Harben putting video and words together to make a video release for Finding Heart Horse. Robin Toma, another amazing photographer is also contributing and I can’t wait to see the final product. Video releases are short, usually 1-3minutes in length so everything has to be condensed and the photographer performs his magic and you have a short summary of what you want people to know about your book.
It’s yet another “birth” of sorts. Another exposure of self that leaves you feeling vulnerable and new and yet energized. I continue to watch Brene’ Brown video’s and am trying to embrace with courage the vulnerability of my telling my story.
Stay tuned for the video and the Hay House Radio Interview.
I’d like to start a Finding Heart Horse gallery. When you buy a book send me a picture of you and the book or the surroundings and I will add it to the gallery. I know, so far it’s being read in Scotland, UK, Canada and the USA…send a picture in to firstname.lastname@example.org
