To get onto a bestseller list an author has to sell between 5-10K books in one week. Unless a new indie author has finances behind them this is highly unlikely to ever happen. Once a writer has a modicum of success things become easier. So, like much in our world, it is not always those with most to offer who shine. This is depressing as many talented creators across the arts fall through the cracks due to lack of cash. www.linda-laforge.com

So, it toom me 2 years to write and fine tune my first novel, Cold Heart in Eden. Then I designed the jacket and built my author website. And produced a short book trailer. It has been 3 weeks since I self published and I have had 3 sales. No family or friends have supported me on this journey. Sadly I do not have the means to pay for book promotion. Sometimes I despair. It sure isnt easy being creative. www.linda-laforge.com

And this is what I see when I step out my front gate. Nature is my comfort and medicine in dark days... And writing! #nature #rural #countryside #herbalism #foraging #offgrid #defiance #truth #love #light #faith #hope #resistance

In troubled times nature heals both literally and metaphorically - physical and spiritual sustenance with sprinkles :) And to super charge, a person can always read a fine yarn under a majestic tree!

When lost for words I wander, and wonder in nature appreciating beauty in the details.

Inspiration is upon the breeze as bees and bugs are making busy in the sunshine.

With the world deeply troubled, and change to our lives now inevitable i am striving towards self sufficiency. I am creating a forest garden for food and medicine. Combined with the Ruth Stout gardening method. The lazy bird garden! No weeding and eventually little planting or watering - gotta be good!

WordPress For Dummies | Lisa Sabin-Wilson

I am busy building my author website using Wordpress. I am no expert but have managed to teach myself via the internet, and the book WordPress For Dummies. Many years ago I taught myself Photoshop using another 'For Dummies' publication. Above is one of my illustrations created using this software. These books, I recommend them to all :)

Weaveworld | Clive Barker

I read this book about thirty years ago, when in my twenties, and thought it 'da bomb!' Been considering netting myself a cooy to re read now but fear it may not live up to my memory. Have you ever been disappointed when revisiting a favourite read? Should I do this or let it remain a fond recollection!?

Sunday is the day I try out my new steam distillery setup for essential oils and browse my many books on herbalism, essential oils and forest gardens. I will also go out and about, and forage for wild rose - the petals of which are kick ass medicine...

This is to be my next purchase as i am having limited success growing, and maintaining, healthy herbs in my neck of the woods. And I require them to make kickass medicinal tinctures... Any other recommendations folks?

In troubled times I am teaching myself herbalism as I assume authority over my own body & wellbeing. I gather reference books. I gather herbs in hedgerows. Nicholas Culpepper is an acclaimed figure historically in the field of herbalism and his works both amuse & educate. I reccommend Culpeppers Complete Herbal to any thinking to kick Big Pharma to touch! & who'da known - Dock Leaves are edible? - But dont take my word for it, do the research.

I have much to do in my greenhouse, & garden - & dare not open a book for fear of being hijacked by the pesky consonants and vowels that lurk between their covers! Instead, I must be content browsing my reference books and gathering inspiration for the book I am writing about my gardening adventures, & foray into snail farming. 'All Good Things in The Gastropod Garden' is a gentle, slow meander through the seasons on our homestead in Bulgaria.

I tend to listen to most of my books these days and this particular one was superbly narrated. A harrowing tale of the human spirit triumphing in adversity it is uplifting whilst being sombre. I highly recommend it to those not looking for a light read!

Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert is a book about life and living creatively. It is an intriguing read that will help the reader to view the world from a different perspective. It is an inspirational read and comes highly recommended.

I Can See Clearly Now | Dr. Wayne W. Dyer
post image

One of my go to authors and life teachers is the sadly now deceased Dr Wayne Dyer. His works are extensive & help us to understand our world and true essence of being. My own writing is influenced by the esoteric in tales that are difficult to strictly categorize. I have two books written & awaiting self publishing once i have a small audience - The Erotic Hotel & Mama, Mama are you there? In the meantime I highly recommend any book by Dr Dyer.

When younger I used to read like a demon, these days I write instead when I am not learning herbalism, working on becoming self sufficient or talking to spirit! I have several books written & short stories to share. Building my author website I am looking for an audience for my work & valuable connections and feedback from those that know a good read when it smacks them in the eye! I am a big fan of the works of Elizabeth Gilbert...
