I’m counting the days. I’m sure my friends and family are, too. Gemini, my debut novel will be released by Black Opal Books in May. Next month! Wow! Holding my book in my hands will be like holding a newborn baby. The bonding–the excitement–the nurturing. I’ve been told there’s nothing like that feeling of holding your first book.
I’d be honored for you to embark on that journey with me. And I’d like to present you with a gift for joining me. As most of you know, I’m a holistic health practitioner specializing in alternative therapies helping people to embrace the mind-body connection. I’m a certified Crystal Therapist and Tarot Master Instructor. My protagonist, Dr. John Trenton is what is known as a holistic forensic psychiatrist. Some call it ‘energy psychiatry.’ He will be using both, crystals and healing stones, and Tarot in Gemini. Therefore it’s fitting I give you crystals and healing stones in clusters, raw form and in jewelry. I’ll be giving the same, as well, in Facebook parties. One giveaway that went very well when I guest blogged and participated in an event was a two sentence Tarot reading for a year reading. Please look for my events because I’ll be doing that again as one of the activities. The response I received was so large, I went to the last second of my allotted time. So many of my clients have asked me the meanings of specific stones, so years ago I wrote the following Gemstone Summary, that I’m reprinting here. I’m posting pics of some of the specific giveaways below the summary, so please read to the end of this blog. What you have to do for a chance to win one of the prizes is to sign up for my newsletter, and I’ll be choosing the winners randomly on Release Day. You can sign up for the newsletter on the upper right of any blog page. Remember there is a confirmation email you’ll have to confirm. This is to prevent spammers.
