Guest post: Janet King, aspiring author
This is one of a series of guest posts, which will allow published and aspiring authors to talk about their work. I met Janet through Twitter.
We support each other on our journey.
Q: Janet, what is the working title of your book?
A: The Soul Difference.
Q: Where did the idea come from for the book?
A: I was once made to feel so bad by an appraisal at work, that I literally felt my life was turning upside down and that there was no way through it. I’d worked for a very long time for the same company. Working hard and long hours. Over the years, the workload took its toll on my health and I couldn’t cope any more. Behind the scenes, it felt like there was a conspiracy going on, plotting against me. The angst just grew and grew. I sought the help of a spiritual intuitive, and from that day forward, I was slowly, on the way back to finding my soul and my health.
Q: What genre does your book fall under?
A: Spirituality and enlightenment. I have travelled a long journey since those ‘black’ days. There is light now within my life.
Q: Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
A: Julia Roberts without a doubt! Think “ Eat, Love PRAY” ~ GOD dwells within.
Q: What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
A: Love your life.
Q: Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
A: I believe in me and will take the necessary steps to publish in any guise.
Q: How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
A: In all honesty, the draft took minutes. It was like time standing still. Thoughts, the questions and answers abound though. I’m filling in all the spaces constantly.
Q: What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
A: “You can heal your life” Louise L. Hay and “A little light on the Spiritual Laws” by Diana Cooper
Q: Who or What inspired you to write this book?
A: My own progress through adversity and the love of God.
Q: What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
A: I hope to offer encouragement to believe in yourself and the higher good. The Universe really does deliver. You just have to believe to receive; live in the NOW, act and live your life in pure intent and kindness. What you give, so shall you receive, in wondrous guises you never thought possible before. I trust in my every day, that it will be wondrous and become abundant in many ways. I am truly blessed and will be guided to live it for the higher good.
