You asked, Blog-Buddies. (Remember Celebrating 20,000 comments at this blog with a Surprising Survey?)
Well, I am responding. With help from my tech guy, who can make changes to this blog that actually work.
Some changes were relatively fast to do and have begun:
- A new Hot Topics category has been added to the ribbon at the top of this page. Click here to get started on different topics of interest, with a Top 10 Post. This can be useful to blog newbies and casual lurkers. Also (differently) useful to some of you very dedicated long-term blog readers.
- The list of Popular Posts on the right column has been expanded. Comments are a very important part of this blog. Check out the educational dialogue. Celebrate this informal online community, intelligent and caring and courageous!
Other changes at “Deeper Perception Made Practical” will take a bit longer. Evidently this blog’s “custom theme” was created a few years ago, while WordPress has continued to be updated with new features. So that custom theme will have to be custom tweaked! I’ll let you know when we have these two new features:
- Grouping comments by wads of 50.
- Installing a back-and-forth button.
Blog-Buddies, thanks so much for co-creating this blog along with me, including the respectfully made suggestions at our “Celebrating” post. And now, in your honor…
Here’s a head’s up about an odd kind of ebook bargain available “While supplies last”
Some of you Blog-Buddies are empaths. In your pursuit of Empath Empowerment(R), you have become early adopters, first readers. You have purchased advance copies of my latest how-to’s, at the very leading edge of resources in the world today for empaths.
Turns out, you have purchased what amounts to first editions of The Empowered Empath and The Master Empath. Well, they won’t be available much longer. And there’s something quite interesting you can do about that.
You see, here’s what has been happening with these books in press. Blog-Buddies, I will tell you high points of the full story. If you prefer, though, you can scroll down right to the time-sensitive action item below with red headlines.
Not for the first time, the joke is on me, the nonfiction author
All summer, and now at the start of the fall, I have been working hard on typesetting. Print-on-demand editions are in the works, which will make it extra easy for you’all to purchase my latest books for empaths… conveniently and anywhere in the world.
First the paperbacks. Then the new epub files for most ebook platforms. And finally the uniquely user-hostile (to publishers) Kindle format required by those who work at Amazon.com.
Well, I was a little rusty about page length. I kind of forgot that a page in my word processing program equals two pages when typeset as a normal-sized paperback. And thus I received a rude shock from my typesetter guy. The Empowered Empath was going to be some 600 pages.
Not okay! Also not okay for The Master Empath to become 500 pages.
My friends, this was a little like going for a sonogram and discovering that I was carrying triplets. Oboy, now I have to buy a minivan!
Actually my conclusion had nothing to do with the purchase of automobiles. I realized it was time for some literary trimming and rearranging. Once again I had to fight my natural inclination, which is to give and give and give and give and give….
Except, whoa! This blog is about “Deeper Perception Made PRACTICAL.” Guess who needs that PRACTICAL part as much as anyone else in our informal online community? 😉
What you empaths will soon be able to buy in book form
The Empowered Empath is more focused now, making it simpler to gain those amazing empath skills. On birth, it will weigh in at about 330 pages.
The Master Empath is way slimmer and trimmer. Comfortably accessible for any of you who might otherwise feel intimidated by leading-edge knowledge plus the most powerful and comprehensive collection on earth for empathic travel in consciousness. This book has quite the assortment of techniques for Skilled Empath Merge. Not too big, not too little. Just right.
In addition, there will be a shorter version of The Empowered Empath. I’m not calling this a Dummies book, although that’s the “literary genre.” (I love those short, practical Dummies books.) This one will be called “Quick & Easy” for short. It will also have a name for long:
The Empowered Empath. Quick & Easy.
Yes, it is.
Let me tell you, during the summer of 2013 Rose Rosetree sweated a lot on all this. I sweated so you wouldn’t have to. I sweated in order to figure out how to make this latest version of Empath Empowerment… be quick and easy for readers. 😉
In short, all of these three manuscripts are print books in progress, with the full array of ebook editions to come.
Meanwhile, here is a special offer for you empaths
I do have to tell you, this has to be one of the wackier special offers I have ever encountered, as either a publisher or a reader.
Pretty soon the editions for sale at Barnes & Noble will be upgraded. If all goes well, the second edition of The Master Empath will be changed later TOMORROW, Thursday, September 25, 2014. While the second edition of The Empowered Empath will uploaded by this weekend.
What about the baby, The Empowered Empath, Quick & Easy? Ever the optimist, I’m hoping by October 15th. That, of course, will be a first edition. One likely to stay a firstie for the foreseeable future.
And what about those two other empath books that are morphing so rapidly into a second edition? What will you get if you purchase either or both of those empath books before I swap them out?
Only about twice the material. Plus a peek at a couple of my future books.
Because I do aim to use all that material, not just delete it all. (Are you kidding?) All of my books in print for empaths, past and present and future, are becoming part of a series, “An Empath Empowerment(R) Book.”
So naturally I have already found future lodging for these concepts and techniques. The ones that used to populate my four-seater Subaru. I mean, The Empowered Empath and The Master Empath.
Extra thrills for any of you empaths who are “English majors” or the equivalent: If any of you like to learn how a writer works, you might enjoy getting the first editions just so you can compare what develops later on. The old outline, the techniques and workarounds, the transitions.
What made the first editions work, compared to the completely new second editions? Ooooh, for you empaths who are either writing freaks or conscious nerds, this is one unusual opportunity. Especially because those first editions remain protected by copyright. Yet, without notice, will be disappearing pretty darned soon. And leaving no paperback trace.
Okay, to be practical, how and when can you obtain these first editions?
These are available exclusively as digital files. Your purchase can be read with an ebook reader yet it need not be read on a Nook. Because you can download Barnes & Noble’s free Nook reading app for your Windows PC, Mac, or Smartphone.
Click here by the weekend to purchase The Empowered Empath (Psssssst, The First Edition.)
Click here today to purchase The Master Empath (Just Between Us, The First Edition.)
Have fun, empaths. Just as that guy pictured at the top of today’s post is definitely winking. He is winking so hard that he actually points to his wink.
So, too, I emphatically mean it when I share today’s inside information with you. Have fun, Blog-Buddies and empaths. Have joy!
