SHYNESS IS NOT A VIRTUE
OK - I actually got my book published. So I have accompished half of my objective of changing the world for the better. This half is organizing my content and making it public. The next half is connecting with increasing numbers of interested readers. This task has been daunting and challenging to say the least.
As my book - DEMYSTIFYING MEANINGFUL COINCIDENCES (SYNCHRONICITIES): The Evolving Self, The Personal Unconscious, and The Careative Process is 'officially' slotted as an "academic" book it is not sold in the book stores. Instead it is only sold online (Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and the publisher: Jacob Aronson.) This means no paid book tours (a thing of the past unless your last name is spelled Palin). It also means it is only printed as a hard cover with a hefty price of $70.00 (discounted to $56.00) until a year or so goes by. Then it will probably be printed as a soft cover edition as well. This means I have to do all the work to get 'it' out there.
In this connection I have had a number of events including a book release event in an art gallery in New York coincidentally named Synchronicity. I also have appeared on the Laurie Nadel radio show twice. Additionally I was invited to be a panelist on a conference called Introspective Truth in Bloomington, Indiana at Indiana University. Next Thursday night I am scheduled to be interviewed by Connie (Gather) from Thursday April 22nd at 9PM ET. [I LOVE BOOKS]
In two weeks I am going to be in another event at which I am going to be on a panel discussing alternative synchronicity theories and their clinical applications. I am very much looking forward to this event as it will be the first time that my alternative natural non Jungian - non mystical/magical theory will be critiqued by some Jungian proponents.
All in all I am quite pleased and excited by my new found sense of purpose and direction. My aim is to find a way to be tapped into the circle of 'experts' who are invited to travel all over the world to make speaking engagments to various conferences and the likes.
I see that this process is slow and steady - like planting a seed, with the aim of initiating a root system, which if properly nurtured should enventually flower. I am throroughly dedicated to obtaining my objective and spurred on by the fact that if Ms. Palin can do it why not me.
