I can’t believe I’m here, that I’ve made it this far. It’s been seven years!

Seeing ‘The End’ at the bottom of that page, three weeks ago, sparked excitement all over. Today I received feedback from my rock band of writer-friends after they read my memoir – for the first time.  My band of sisters have sprinkled their special magic over Speak #TRUTH Lies, I look forward to following their guidance and making her shine. 🌟

The end of writing means marketing begins in earnest. I’ve been looking forward to this part for so long. I get to be online and social and build websites and newscasts and design a book cover, and figure out how to publish and then sell the book. I love all this, especially the community and tech stuff. I’m playing with graphics and words to get clear of what I want to do – now when Speak #TRUTH Lies is nearly ready to ‘fly the nest’. I want to write all about my Life & Memoir writing journey and would love you to join my email list. Sign up below – unless you see a fancy pop-up thing. While I write this {25.02.13} it is still on my list 🎯 to do.

I haven’t got a clew about book promotion. How do I get into magazines and newspapers for instance?  If you know something – or someone who knows something – about it, please – share your ideas and favourite teachers with me. I know I can contact podcasters directly with a pitch for a conversation that will be interesting to their listeners, but I’m not sure who to contact. Do you have a suggestion? What is your favourite podcast?

Right now I’m working on my website. Thank you so much for visiting me here, by the way. What do you think? I would love to hear how you find your way around, and what you like and don’t. Not all the links are working yet 🙂 Everything is still in development but the site hasn’t had visitors in a long time, so nobody other than you and me, and maybe a few others, will see my mistakes 🙂 

This is me launching before I’m ready 🙃 I feel vulnerable, excited and brave 🙂

If you’re interested, I’m working on a free Life & Memoir Writing guide. At the moment I’m calling it ‘The Making of a Memoir,‘ but I think I like Making Memoir better – which do you prefer? Or do you have a different idea? Maybe I ‘should’ call it ‘Your free guide to Life & Memoir Writing‘. . . 🤔 I’m thinking this will be a series of PDF downloads . . .

I’m pondering aloud on the web page here.

Help yourself to a copy. It’s not finished yet, so let me know how I can improve it. Is there anything you don’t agree with or think I should add? There’s something not right with the colours 🎨 None of the 🔗 works – I have a few videos to record but my YouTube Channel is already live.

Next, I’m designing an email sequence to download the free guide. When that’s done – and if you have time – I would love it if you would test the PDF’s signup and copy. 🧡

I hope you have time to linger a while and have a good look around my newly refurbished online home. I am grateful you are here. 🧡 To contact me, Sign Up to the Circular or ead over to Instagram or our Facebook group to join the banter.

Much Love and Light

Vig 🧡
